Living Proof Perfect hair Day (PhD) Fresh Cut Split End Mender is a lightweight lotion that instantly seals split ends to keep hair looking and feeling freshly cut. Featuring Living Proof's patented Healthy Hair Molecule (OFPMA) and our instant-zip technology which:
  • Keeps hair looking smooth and polished
  • Mimics the look of a fresh haircut by sealing and smoothing ends and aligning hair fibers for a cleaner look
  • Instantly seals and heals split ends

Perfect hair Day (PhD) Fresh Cut is ideal for all hair types. It is silicone-free. Safe and formulated for color and chemically treated hair. Perfect hair Day works hard to keep hair looking and feeling healthy.

Most current split-end products rely on a resin-based technology that glues the hair together and visibly seals it but the hair feels tacky, gunky, and anything but freshly cut.

Living Proof's instant-zip technology featured in Perfect hair Day (PhD) Fresh Cut Split End Mender, actually targets the split:
  • Microscopic charged capsules utilize ionic forces to visibly zip the end closed without binding individual strands together
  • Mango butter then delivers a conditioning layer on the hair fiber
  • A light film former forms a durable protective seal so ends feel soft and smooth and stay that way
  • Finally, Living Proof's patented Healthy Hair Molecule (OFPMA) creates a smooth, polished finish that leaves hair looking and feeling as fresh as a new haircut

Finally, a real solution that truly helps keep your ends looking and feeling freshly cut.

    Comments about Living Proof Perfect hair Day (PhD) Fresh Cut Split End Mender:

    Living Proof Split End Mender helps to smooth split ends; however, I haven't noticed that it actually mends the split ends. I tend to get split ends in one particular area due to damage caused when a hair tie got tangled in my curly hair. This product makes that "dry patch" less noticeable. Just wish the price were lower.

        Comments about Living Proof Perfect hair Day (PhD) Fresh Cut Split End Mender:

        I always have a hard time growing out my hair because of horrible split ends. I use heat on my hair 2x/week and this product has helped prevent split ends and keep my hair equally thick from root to end. I've been using this product religiously after washing my hair since I've had a trim and almost 3 months later my hair still looks like it's been freshly cut. And because my ends aren't breaking off, my hair is finally growing again! I am so happy I've tried so many split end menders in the past that honestly did nothing. This truly works

            Comments about Living Proof Perfect hair Day (PhD) Fresh Cut Split End Mender:

            I got this after donating my hair. I usually get split ends about 6-7 weeks after a trim, and in the past 8 months that I've used this, I've only needed 2 trims! My hair is growing out quickly, and I can definitely tell a difference in th texture and manageability of my fine, slightly wavy hair. It also requires very little product, so the value is worth the price. My first tube is just now getting empty, and I am ready for another!

                        Smells like bug spray - literally smells like bug spray. Does not seem to live up to its claims. Does not seem to "mend" anything. No smoothing effects. Does not make ends less frizzy that I can tell. I have lightened processed hair that requires a smoothing agent for me to comb through. This product is counterproductive to this.

                            I haven't had a trim in around a year. I use heat to style nearly every day, so I have quite a few split ends and breakage. Would this product help seal the split ends and stop the breakage? I'm tying to grow my hair out and every time I go to a salon they always cut off way more than what I want!

                              Fresh Cut is meant for all hair types and specifically targeted to sealing ends. Restore Instant Repair is recommended for dry/damaged hair. It provides richer conditioning that targets damage sites from root to tip and helps prevent future breakage.

                            I have oily hair, so will using this on my hair make it more oily than usual?

                              This should be used on split ends only so most likely won't be applied close to your roots. It should not make hair more oily than usual.

                            How does this differ from the living proof instant repair? Both products mend existing split ends or only this one?

                              Fresh Cut is meant for all hair types and specifically targeted to sealing ends. Restore Instant Repair is recommended for dry/damaged hair. It provides richer conditioning that targets damage sites from root to tip and helps prevent future breakage.
