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.

              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.

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

                  I tried "split end repair" products, but none worked: the effect lasted two hours. Even with Restore Instant Repair, the only effect on the split ends was a little softer hair. Since my hair loves most of the Living Proof products, I was curious about Fresh Cut, but not enough to purchase the full size. Instead, I bought the Timeless Conditioner, and received a sample of Fresh Cut.

                  The sample was used 3 times within a week, and the results were not expected: no split ends! My hair is naturally curly/coily, dry and with some split ends. The split ends are more noticeable in the winter than other seasons.

                  The full size was purchased two weeks later (still no split ends). With healthy hair habits, this product is economical, though I wish the size was larger. The important thing is that the product really is true to the claim.

                      I have very thick, medium length hair and after towel drying I apply about a dime size amount and it is plenty. I blow dry and style as usual. I'm on my second tube (the first one lasted about 6 months) and this has become a must have product!

                      Bonus: It smells great too!

                        I have very thick hair that gets dry and is prone to getting split ends quickly. The product smell can be a bit strong but I personally like the scent. It's been a while since I've gotten my hair cut but I noticed that this product really helped in keeping my hair soft, less tangled and the split ends aren't really noticeable. This will likely be a staple for me!

                          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! I'm looking for a product to help mend my ends!

                            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.

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

                            A:

                            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.
