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 like this dry shampoo but not sure I will repurchase (on second bottle). I've found less expensive dry shampoos that I like just as much, if not more. It does help with volume and gives thinner hair better texture and the scent is nice-not overwhelming.

            Hands down the best dry shampoo out there. Can be used on any color hair as it is clear. It smells great and does the best job of cleaning my hair and extending having to wash my hair by one or two days. Only complaint is that it is expensive, and I wish they made it in larger sizes.

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

                  I have purple hair, so dry shampoo is a must. I'm only able to wash my hair about once a week if I want my color to last, so having a quality dry shampoo is very important. I love this product so much! It works really well. My hair actually looks and feels clean after I use this, and stays that way all day! My only complaint is how quickly it runs out. I typically go through a can in about 2 weeks. :(

                  Made my hair greasy

                  By MK

                  from Erie, PA

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

                  I've used living proof perfect hair dry dry shampoo for almost a year now and I love it so I decided to give the shampoo a chance. My hair is naturally curly so it usually can still look good with two washes a week, only having to use the dry shampoo once or twice. When I first tried this product it made my hair feel thicker which I liked, but it felt and looked really greasy. I thought I might have used too much so I gave it another shot a couple days later and it was absolutely horrible. My hair has never looked so greasy before! I couldn't even run my fingers through it. I definitely would not recommend. I gave it a shot three times and was very unhappy with each wash. I will go back to redken!

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

                  I was skeptical of the price, however I reached a point of desperation as I couldn't find a dry shampoo product that didn't leave my hair greasy after only a few hours. PhD left my hair soft, full, and smelling great all day! I was highly impressed. The only downside is the amount of dust that comes when you shake it out of your hair, but that can typically be expected with dry shampoos.

                      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.
