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

    I used my regular shampoo and conditioner which is L'oreal Color Protect and used enough product to coat my hair. Ends to roots and made sure to comb it all through with my fingers. Did two rinses and used the guide inside the box to twirl my hair and pin it back. My hair was voluminous that it hadn't been before. Absolutely love this product and would buy it again.

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

      When I leave for work on my scooter with my hair free, I end up with a frizzy halo of hair. I can use this, leave a half hour after using, it with my hair still damp, and arrive at work with great looking curls and waves ( compared to without it) . I actually had to read the directions though, I used it like a gel styler first, after getting out of shower, and hated it! Now I know how to use it I love it, just bought my second tube!

          Ok Ive always wanted to LIKE Living Proof products. I saw the add for this and the gorgeous waves the girl had in the photo.. First off the directions are so confusing to wash hair condition then apply this but dont rinse it out too much.. I have tried this product 3 times.. adding more .. leaving it in less and more even after I got out of the shower too .. it didnt do anything but leave me MORE frizzy and my hair was lifeless too plus it took forever to air dry way more them normal! I almost looked greasy :(

          This is great stuff, but it takes some getting used to - it's hard to tell how much to rinse out vs leave in.

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

            Full disclaimer: My hair is probably curlier than this product is intended for. However, I recently cut it to about jaw-length and I think since it is short it still works. My hair is somewhere in between curly and wavy, very fine, and thick. I only air dry so there is no damage. At first I did not like this product but after some trial and error, I love it. I apply it generously in the shower and carefully rinse out just a bit. I blot just a little with my towel. After showering, I apply a pea-sized amount of hair oil, and then after a few minutes I use some frizz cream. I think frizz is where this product falls short, but by adding just a little of these products I think it is under control, even in really humid conditions. After adding product, I plop and leave my hair up until I leave the house.

            My curls are big, bouncy, and well-defined. My only complaint is that the hold definitely wears off throughout the day. By the end of the day my curls are much looser. I don't love that part, but oh well. They still look great.

              I am so disappointed in this product. I really wanted it to work. I did exactly as the instructions stated and I am left with a mess of frizzy mop that I had to put in a bun as soon as I arrived at work. I even went so far as to put lotion on it to try and tame it. I'd take a pic, but I would never embarrass myself like that!

                It took two tries to learn the right amount of product to leave in, but it works great! My hair is slightly wavy and this product gives me more wave, lots of body, and keeps it soft. Another bonus is on the second day I add a few curls and they stay in so much longer with great volume.
