      LOVE this stuff!! I use it as a leave in not a sleep in and shampoo out. Breakin' the rules... I have very long, blonde, chemically dependent hair, and this keeps me tangle free, and smooth and shiny!! Most people say my hair feels like a bunny. Its not heavy at all, sooo light weight! A tiny bit goes a very long way! Adore!!

          What works for some doesn't always work for all. Sadly this didn't for me.I have medium thick overall straight and above the shoulder hair. I typically only shampoo, condition and let it air dry. I have very healthy hair and it is super soft and always looks clean even after waking in the morning. Living Proof products made my hair look dirty and also made my scalp quite itchy. Thankfully Ulta refunded the money because they are quite pricey.

              I wash my hair at night and have thick, coarse hair. Through my probable ineptitude, I have had issue finding a leave in conditioner that does not leave my hair looking and feeling greasy. This makes my hair feel soft and enhances my natural wave as well. Love it!

                  This night cap was highly recommended by Jennifer Aniston and her hair always looks so shiny and healthy. So I bought this product believing and having high expectations. I put the product on my hair and put it on a loose bun, got up in the morning washed it with Living Proof timeless shampoo/conditioner and let it air dry.....and guess what? My hair was beautifully radiant, the curls were defined and so soft. My hair looked like it did when I was 25 years old....AMAZING!!!

                    I went to far and damaged one side of my hair terribly! I can't believe the difference this night cap makes. I have heavy, thick wavy hair- and lots of it. It takes only a small amount of product to produce beautiful, shiny hair that shows no damage. Where has this been all my life! I've tried Argan oil, coconut oil, all the pricey bells and whistles- but NIGHT CAP does it. It's not "weighty" or heavy. Easy to use..and ....WALLAH!

                      I love this product! I have gotten it a few times as samples (1oz and they tend to last over a month each) and finally decided to buy a full size and I do not regret it! It put about 3-4 pumps all throughout my hair after towel drying and from there let my hair air-dry on it's own. It leaves my hair super soft, shiney and manageable. I have naturally unruly hair and this saves the day! I'm also starting to notice that it helps my hair to dry faster than it usually would.
                      Highly recommend!

                      • Q:

                        I have been using this product for quite a while. I was using it after washing my hair to tame it - like a strong version of the 5 in 1. The last two bottles I've purchased have been more liquid and do not work as well and don't even come out of the bottle properly. The lady I spoke with at Ulta seemed to say it must have expired. I believe I bought one bottle in the store and ordered one online so it is unlikely that they were both expired. Has the formula changed?
                        I want something oil free that WILL weigh my hair down. Would the Timeless Prewash be thicker?

                        My hairdresser says that night cap helps your hair grow longer, because it protects the ends and you don't need to cut it as often. Does it have this effect?

                          A:

                          Night Cap Overnight Perfector is conditioning therefore it can be helpful for dry ends, which can lead to split ends. If you are looking for a product that helps repair dry, damaged hair and you want to prevent split ends I recommend using Restore Instant Repair.

                          Yes, you can layer the products! It is preference on how you use the treatment. As it is a conditioning treatment leaving it in for a longer period of time can have great outcomes and is not harmful to the hair!

                          Night Cap Overnight Perfector is most effective on clean hair, but still has benefits when used on unwashed hair.
