  • 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 did some research on dry shampoos and read a lot of reviews. This sounded like it was going to be great. To be honest, I don't love it. It leaves a lot of residue, it doesn't really feel like it cleans my hair at all. It smells good but that's about the only thing I like about it.

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

      The only dry shampoo I'll use! My hair is naturally very dark brown and gets greasy easily, even without any products. It's pricey but it's the only product I trust to get the job done and still have my hair looking great.

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

        As a busy full-time working mom with 2 kids in 2 different schools, I need the quickest and best way to get ready every morning. I stock up on this dry shampoo everytime I get added Platinum points because i use it so often. I tried so many dry shampoos that never worked like this one. With slightly oily hair, I used to never be able to go 2 days without shampooing - now, I can wash and blow dry day 1, spray this in before I go to bed and little in the morning and I'm good to go for Day 2, if I use again night and morning I can get a Day 3 too! Life changer for me - smells amazing, no white chalky look, amazing!

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

              I tend to have greasy hair no matter what shampoo/conditioner I use or the time between washes. I've tried at least 6 different dry shampoos, including the products offered by big name brands. I love the living proof products and figured the dry shampoo would be awesome too. Boy, was I right! It initially a bit of white product but after brushing it through, it isn't visible anymore. The only downside is that it doesn't have the much volumizing power-however, I can sacrifice a little volume for cleaner hair!

                  A:

                  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.

              • Q:

                Does this leave a white residue? Or is it clear?
                Asked on 6/23/2016 by CityChick from Philadelphia, PA

                1 answer

                • Brand Expert

                  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.
