Comments about Living Proof Perfect hair Day (PhD) In-Shower Styler:

I tried this to air dry my fine wavy hair but wasn't happy with it but it was great after I styled it with the blow dryer. Bouncy and thicker. Seems like this product corrects porous hair and balances Ph while adding some moisture.

            I love this stuff because as soon as I read the product review I knew that was exactly my hair. The only thing I don't like is the vague instruction of a light rinse.

              Comments about Living Proof Perfect hair Day (PhD) In-Shower Styler:

              Just started using this because I don't want to dry my hair but I like to have some waves and body in my hair. After washing at night, I put about a quarter size in my palm for my wavy, thick, just below shoulder length hair. Then I lightly rinse while in shower like the instructions say. After I get out, I towel dry my hair, run a comb through it, twist it up and clip it at the top of my head, and then go to bed that way. I wake up in the morning take the clip out and rake my hair with my fingers. Works great.

                Comments about Living Proof Perfect hair Day (PhD) In-Shower Styler:

                This product just didn't do anything for me. I have fine, mostly straight hair- but a lot of it. I am currently trying to grow out some annoying layers and damage so I thought this would be a great product to give me some good hair days since I have mostly cut out hot tools for the past several months. Nope. Although this product is easy and pleasant to apply, I didn't see any improvement in its air-dried appearance after reading the instructions and even watching tutorials on the Living Proof website. I guess it just isn't intended for fine/straight hair.

                    This made my wavy hair extremely frizzy! When it was still wet, it curled but dry was a frizzy mess! I used it several times with the same result.

                      I was all ready to call this "Over Priced Hooey", but I was still curious enough to try it. It may be pricey, but it WORKS like nothing else I have EVER tried! Simple to use, but what wonderful results! My hair has more shine, body, bounce, and curl. No frizz, no dryness. Does not weigh my hair down. I am very impressed with this product and will continue to purchase again and again.
