Perfect Hair Day (PhD) Night Cap Overnight Perfector is the ultimate beauty sleep for your hair. This easy-to-use solution gives you one week of shiny, vibrant, and more manageable hair overnight, and the benefits that last up to 5 shampoos. Apply it at night (to dry or damp hair), go to sleep, and wake up to this:

  • Shiny hair for days. Weightless radiance refractors outperform silicones and oils.
  • Long-lasting, vibrant color. Patented Healthy Hair Molecule (OFPMA) combined with long-lasting cuticle sealing technology helps smooth the cuticle and reduce pigment loss.
  • More manageable hair. Amino acids condition and protect against your daily styling habits and other environmental assaults.
  • Overnight results that last. These benefits last all week (up to 5 shampoos).


Night Cap is weightless, pillow safe, and perfect for all hair types.

Apply to dry or damp hair before bed. Start with 2-3 pumps, spreading product evenly between your hands and then distributing from root to tip, focusing on the ends. Use more depending on your hair's thickness and length. Comb through and leave in overnight. Wake up and style (or wash it out if it's a shampoo day).

    I massage this in my hair before bed and put it in a loose bun. Do it maybe 1-2 times a week. AMAZING RESULTS! My hair looks and feels super healthy. It's shiny and makes my color treated hair look a lot brighter. I love it! Definitely will buy this again!

            If you had before dying you hair or use bleach try to go light this product is perfect for you. I have a healthy hair but I damage my hair around a year ago using bleach and putting different colors, so I heard about this night cap and I give a try. Works every penny I'm obsessed with it. It's works for me and that's my option.

                          How does this product differ from Timeless Pre-Shampoo Treatment? I've recently started using the Timeless product at night a couple of times a week, and it is amazing. It's literally changed my opinion of my own hair, haha! Is there a benefit to using both products (not necessarily together, of course). Does the overnight perfector do something that the pre-shampoo treatment does not, or vice versa?

                          Is this product mostly used on long hair? I wear my hair in a bob cut so other than the sides it is rather short. My hair is fine and not particularly thick and my concern is that it will cause it to be to soft to the point it won't hold a style. I already have to use thickening and volume products,I don't want to use something that will make it ever harder to maintain the style.

                            PhD Night Cap can be used on any length hair. Apply before bed, then rinse out the next day for shiny, vibrant, and more manageable hair overnight. It's a weightless formula and will not prevent your hair from holding a style when rinsed out.
