Perfect hair Day (PhD) Dry Shampoo

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.

          My hair looks best when it is washed every 4 days; therefore, I use dry shampoo regularly. I've tried many products and this is the best by far. It soaks up sweat post workout and keeps my hair from feeling greasy. In addition, it adds volume to my straight blonde hair.

                  I use this product anytime I don't want to wash my hair, but need to freshen it up or help it to look and feel clean. I am picky about the scent on products because I can't tolerate certain scents like musk and vanilla. This one is great. Love it.

                            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.
