Patented OFPMA molecule reduces the surface friction on hair, so it's easy to remove the powders making this the next best thing to washing your hair. Odor neutralizers eliminate less desirable smells, and time release fragrance releases a light, clean scent all day long.

Benefits:
  • Cleans beyond an ordinary dry shampoo making it the next best thing to washing your hair.
  • Absorbs and removes not only oil, but also sweat and odor so hair looks, feels and smells clean - no matter your hair color.
  • Contains time-release fragrance delivers a light, clean scent throughout the day.
Shake well. Hold canister 6 to 10 inches away from dry hair, then apply Dry Shampoo section by section in a sweeping motion to dirty or oily areas. Wait 30 seconds for powders to activate and cleanse, then remove them by massaging your hair with your fingers, or brushing your hair. Apply more if needed (just make sure to shake the can again).

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

                    I have VERY oily hair and have to wash my hair on a daily basis. My hair is thin and drys slightly wavy. I have no patience to do my hair daily so most of the time its in a bun, ponytail or braid. This dry shampoo by far is the best because it allows me to go 72 hours WITHOUT washing my hair while my hair is up in a bun. My hair doesn't looks so great down after three days so I don't even attempt to do that. My hair looks so clean after spraying this on my scalp. Will continue to buy this. Only negative is that the white powder it spews out can be annoying to work out of you hair, but its do-able.

                          I use this dry shampoo on days I don't wash my hair & it makes my hair like it's freshly washed! It also keeps it looking fresh, through the whole day. It's pricey, but worth it. I have no need to buy another brand, ever again.

                                  Yes, it is safe to straighten hair after using PhD Dry Shampoo. We do recommend using Restore Instant Protection to weightlessly protect against heat styling up to 450° and add additional shine and smoothness, prior to straightening your hair.

                                  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.

                                  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.

                                  It varies, but based on medium density hair/length, it's about 15-20 uses.
