    Comments about Living Proof Perfect hair Day (PhD) Dry Shampoo:

    Love this dry shampoo. Best one I have used. Keeps my hair looking fresh even on third day hair (which is normally impossible for me to pull off, with my oily hair). Doesn't make my sensitive scalp itch, smells amazing but isn't so strong that it makes you feel sick every time you turn your head. Voluminous well and you only need a little bit, which is nice because it is an expensive product. Work's so well that I would consider repurchasing.

              This is great stuff. It makes your hair look shiny and clean, not dull like some other dry shampoos. I think it makes my highlights look better and it actually has a toning effect for my blonde hair that gives it a cooler tone after I use it!

                • Q:

                  Does this leave a white residue? Or is it clear?

                    A:

                    It's not a clear formula, so some white residue, that is easy to remove, is normal and expected—especially if you have dark hair. To remove the white residue, rub and massage hair with fingers and/or use brush. A boar's bristle brush will be the most efficient in removing the powders. If white residue still exists, use a blow dryer.

                    A:

                    PhD Dry Shampoo will remove sebum and oils. Volume sprays and hairsprays are mainly resin based products, so we recommend brushing through the hair before applying our Dry Shampoo.

                    The Dry Shampoo is appropriate for any hair type. If you have oils or silicones or a strong hold hairspray in your hair already, you may need to use a brush and hair dryer to help remove the powders.
