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 not only use this product overnight, as directed, but I also use it to calm frizzies and it seems to somehow add a little body to my hair on day two when it tends to be a little limp. I always get compliments on my hair when I use this product.

    I have recently had my hair bleached every 6 weeks for about 4 months. It has really taken a toll on my hair. I was so used to it being soft and shiny and frantically started searching for something to bring back the softness I had lost.
    After salon visit number 3 I was given a tube of this as a free sample. Oh my God after just one use my hair felt and looked amazing! I had to go buy a bigger bottle as soon as I could and haven't stopped using it since!!

      I received this a free sample during one of my purchases and I extremely happy with what it has done to my hair. I have always dealt with dry damaged frizzy hair and have spent so much money on products that have never worked. I applied this to my hair after a shower and left it on. My hair has this beautiful shine and it's super soft. Love it

      My hair is fine and curly. It is a platinum blonde ombr� and this has been really making a difference in my hairs texture. I add just a bit to the ends each night before bed and in the morning it feels soft! A must for color treated hair.

                • Q:

                  I use the PHD shampoo and conditioner, and then apply the 5-1 treatment before blow drying my hair. Can I apply this on top of that treatment? And also, is it more effective to wash it out the morning after or leave in till next wash?

                    A:

                    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!

                    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.

                    Because it is intended to be shampooed out, Living Proof Timeless Pre-Shampoo Treatment is more conditioning than Night Cap and also contains color, UV and thermal protection.

                  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?
