Perfect hair Day (PhD) Dry Shampoo

Ask a Question
Living Proof Perfect hair Day (PhD) Dry Shampoo cleans beyond ordinary dry shampoos. It's powered by Living Proof's patented Healthy Hair Molecule (OFPMA) and Triple-Action Cleaning Technology that:
  • Absorbs and removes oil, sweat and odor
  • Makes your hair look, feel and smell clean
  • Works on all hair colors because it leaves virtually no visible residue or powdery build-up behind
  • Has a time-released fragrance to deliver a light, clean scent throughout the day

Perfect hair Day (PhD) Dry Shampoo is ideal for all hair types. It is silicone-free. Safe and formulated for color and chemically treated hair.

"Dry Shampoo" has been a bit of a misnomer as products on the market haven't actually cleaned your hair. The powder-based formulas soak up oil often leaving behind a dirty residue you can see and feel. That's not clean hair - that's just dirty hair in hiding. Living Proof Perfect hair Day (PhD) Dry Shampoo's Triple-Action Cleaning Technology tackles the three dimensions of clean hair: how it looks, how it feels, and how it smells.
  • Fast-absorbing powders soak up oil and sweat
  • Living Proof's patented Healthy Hair Molecule (OFPMA) reduces the surface friction on hair, so it's easy to remove the powders that have absorbed the oil and sweat in your hair
  • Odor neutralizers eliminate less desirable smells and time-release fragrance releases a light, clean scent all day long.

CLICK HERE to see how Perfect hair Day (PhD) Dry Shampoo works
Shake can extremely well for maximum cleaning results. Hold canister about 6-10" away from dry hair. Section thoroughly and apply product in a sweeping motion to dirty and oily areas. Wait 30 seconds for the powders to activate and cleanse. Then remove by massaging and shaking at roots with fingers or brush hair. Apply more if needed, make sure to shake can again. Style as desired.

Tips & Tricks: See white residue? A little residue that can be removed easily is normal (that's the cleaning in the works). If you experience more than that, make sure you shake the can and hold the can farther from your head.

            I've tried drugstore brands, and Batiste dry shampoo. They both seemed to help upon application, but my hair would look greasy and awful just a few hours later. I had all but given up on dry shampoo. I am so glad I tried this Perfect Hair Day dry shampoo. It is the hands-down winner. My hair actually seems cleaner, I get a good amount of body/volume, and texture. It smells so great! I don't have a single con for this product.

              I love this product so I don't have to wash my hair every day-I workout 5 days a week, but that's way too many times to wash your hair! It really cuts the oiliness out, but it can feel kind of gross after a couple days, so that's about the longest I go between washes! Wish it was a little cheaper, but it does last if only using 1 or 2x a week!

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

              I have really fine hair and most dry shampoos I've tried have left a real heavy feel in my hair which made it feel even more dirty. I tried Perfect Hair Day because it had such great reviews, and I loved it from the very first use. It doesn't have that heavy feel and really makes my hair feel like I just washed it. There's no overpowering scent either! The scent is light and just smells clean to me. (My husband has often commented that my hair smells really good after I have used it!) It is a little pricey compared to other dry shampoos but totally worth it because it works so perfectly for me.

                      This dry shampoo has revolutionized my morning routine. I only have to shampoo every other day now. I could probably go longer, but haven't tried yet. I have oily hair, and this is the only dry shampoo that has worked, without feeling heavy and gross in my hair. I blow dry and straighten every day, and wanted to start giving my hair a break so it can become healthier. I use other Living Proof products, and have seen a big difference in the overall health and improvement of my hair. Thank you Living Proof!

                          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.

                          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.
