    Comments about Living Proof Perfect hair Day (PhD) Night Cap Overnight Perfector:

    Love this product! I have very thick hair and lots of split-ends. This smooths my hair leaving a healthy look. My hair is so soft and shiny without being weighed down or oily looking. The creme is lightweight so there is no sticky product feeling left in my hair either. I use in my wet hair before bed as directed and put a little more in my dry hair in the morning before styling. Works great!

        LOVE the look and that smell! Oh, my! It lasted about a week for me, I usually wash my hair every other day. It does say you can leave it in or wash it out, I HIGHLY recommend washing it out. My hair was totally unmanageable, sticky and greasy looking the one time I tried it without washing it out. Otherwise, I love what it does to my locks!

          Love this product!
          It fits into my quick and easy routine and I wake up with gorgeous hair with great texture!
          All I do is wash, damp-dry, apply, and catch some zzz's.
          The product is light and doesn't weight you down or feel sticky but calms generally chaotic hair. The smell is light and non-irritating. I'm typically sensitive to perfumes and this doesn't bother me.

                    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.

                          • 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?

                              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!

                            I am using restore shampoo and conditioner, night cap, and split end mender. I have fine wavy processed hair. My ends are feeling really brittle and dry still and I just got a trim? What regimen would you recommend based on my issue?

                              I would suggest adding in the Restore Mask Treatment to your regimen!

                            I have oily hair. Will this work for me? Will it make my hair more oily in the morning. Also, if I use it on damp hair, can you blow dry before bed. Thanks

                              If you have oily hair I would suggest not using product near your roots. Apply the product from mid-shaft to ends! Yes, you can blow dry your hair after applying this product.

                            Is it still effective using it on unwashed hair before bed?

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