Ask a Question

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 am on my second bottle of this product. It leaves my hair super soft but not greasy or weighed down. Unfortunately the product barely comes out with each pump. Really disappointed as it's too expensive to just throw out.

                    • Q:

                      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.

                        A:

                        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.

                        Yes it will. Think of this product like any overnight mask you use for your skin that you would normally wash out in the morning, as well.

                    • Q:

                      I have naturally curly hair but I keep it straight. Will this product curl my hair? Very wet products make my hair go back to curly.

                        A:

                        Although Night Cap dries very quickly once put in the hair, it's possible that it will make naturally curly hair that has been straightened revert back to a wave or curl a bit. That said, it probably will just need a quick touch up the next day.

                        We recommend brushing it through thoroughly after applying so that it speeds the drying process up.

                      I know you can use this on dry hair but what about dry hair that has had product in it all day. Will it penetrate through styling products, hair spray etc or do you have to wash this out before applying?

                        A:

                        We recommend to not apply Night Cap over a silicone or oil-based serum because it minimizes the ability for it to soak into your hair. We suggest that if you have a lot of styling product in your hair, to brush your hair before applying Night Cap to help remove any residue.

                        Yes, you can use this on oily hair. Night Cap can be washed out the following day and you'll still get the same benefits. The PhD Dry Shampoo is great for oily hair. It will absorb and remove dirt so hair stays cleaner longer. The PhD Shampoo and Conditioner in this line keep hair cleaner longer so these are great products for oily hair, too. Enjoy!

                        We suggest using the PhD Night Cap 1-2x a week. This product can be applied to damp or dry hair, prior to bed. Night Cap is very lightweight, fast absorbing and pillow safe! Applying this product more than 1-2x a week will not hurt, however, it is not necessary as the benefits will last through 5 shampoos!
