    My Holy Grail hair product

    By Ms Lionheart

    from SoCal

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

    After years of fighting my curly hair or just resorting to throwing it in a bun I somehow stumbled on this line of products. Yes it's pricey, but I have never ever gotten so many compliments on my hair in my life. This stuff is literally a game changer for me.
    I shampoo and condition with the PHD product line, before I get out of the shower I use this product and get it into my hair, using a wet brush I like to brush it in. I will step very quickly under the water and then that's it. I dry my hair and scrunch it lightly with old t-shirts only and let it air dry. Beautiful curls that last me a few days with dry shampoo as needed.
    I don't like being without it! Easy 5 star from me.

                I followed the directions for air drying your hair and I had less waves than if I used nothing. I keep using it hoping for different results but no luck.

                    I have very short, very thick hair with cowlicks. I'm very picky about product, and as a new mom, I'm very short on styling time (forget heat styling, ever). I picked this up on a whim (trial size), and the results amazed me! Great hold, great texture and tons of shine -- I can never get all three of those in a product, and definitely not this quick. My only gripe is that it was really crunchy until my hair dried completely. Other than that, it's worth every penny.

                        I love Living Proof, but was very disappointed with this product. The product left my hair feeling greasy regardless of the rinse. After using it twice, I will not use it again.

                          My hair is thin, fine and wavy. Blow drying was making it dry and frizzy. This product is easy to use, dried quickly and made hair feel thicker when dry brushed

                              I have pretty straight hair, but a slight uneven wave is making an appearance these days. To go with it, I tend to use curl enhancing products and often end up with that crunchy 80's scrunch look. Despite some negative reviews, I decided to give this a whirl and so far, so good. My waves are still thin, but definitely more evened out without any crunch! And I haven't been using at sort of curl product post shower. I'll definitely be experimenting a bit with combing it through, how much to rinse out, etc.
