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.

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 have been using LP dry shampoo for over a year. I have gone 5 days without washing my hair and my hair still looks awesome and clean. My hair is fine so it tends to dry out easy and break from washing too much. This stuff gives my hair body and looks like I styled my hair when really I just spray this in and run my fingers through. I always get comments on how good my hair smells.

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

            Really sad this wasn't as amazing as I thought it was going to be based on reviews! I have fairly thin, fine hair and I have a hard time finding any products to give me good volume. This made my hair feel like straw, like it stripped my hair. My ends are generally a little frizzy due to dyeing and heat, but this amplified it. I couldn't even wear my hair down after washing it, it felt sooo gross. I thought for the price this would be the best product ever. :(

                          If you are looking for a product to help with your color we suggest the Timelesss Pre-Shampoo treatment. Using dry shampoo will help with dirt and oils, therefore washing your hair less which is better for color treated hair!

                          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.
