  • Oily Hair

Comments about Living Proof Perfect hair Day (PhD) Shampoo:

So, living proof smells great, keeps my oily scalp under control, BUT their products make my hair fall A LOT and really hard to detangle. I've read other reviews saying the same thing, my sisters tried the products and the same happen to them. I have the PhD shampoo and conditioner and the no frizz shampoo and conditioner, they do what they promise but the hair loss they cause it's just not worth.

    Comments about Living Proof Perfect hair Day (PhD) Shampoo:

    Up until trying the shampoo and conditioner I loved every Living Proof item I tried. I love the Prime style extender and during a sale plus bonus points I stocked up on the dry shampoo. I had rows lined up like soldiers in my cabinet. I'm glad the holiday sales are coming for a restock! You can't beat that product, it's fantastic. I was hesitant to spend so much on this shampoo ( and the matching conditioner) but I knew the line lives up to the hype so I jumped. I was certain it would be great. I was so surprised when my hair didn't get clean I used a treatment thinking maybe I had product buildup. Nope. This just doesn't keep my hair clean. I've never had my hair get dirty so fast. It's crazy how fast it goes from freshly shampooed to greasy, lank and clumpy. My thin, fine hair just hangs in strings. It's awful! I don't know about other hair types but if you have thin, fine, straight hair that's relatively healthy avoid this or at least get samples from the S store first before you waste a nice chunk of change.

        [I have lots and lots of fine, color treated, slightly wavy hair. Scalp is slightly oily, ends show some slight damage from color treatments.] This product dried out my hair SO BAD that I had to do a conditioning hair mask immediately. It completely dried out my hair - it was so bad it felt like straw. I cannot recommend this to anyone.

            I will literally never go back to using any other product line. I splurged for the PhD line after cutting off several inches of my hair and deciding it was time to make having healthy hair a priority. Absolutely worth the money - my hair feels better than ever AND I only have to wash it 2-3 times a week.

                I wanted to love this product. Especially since I spent a pretty penny on the shampoo and conditioner. It gives my hair an awful texture with a mix of dry, frizzy, really matte hair. Yet the next day my roots are a grease pit. Every time I look at the bottles it annoys me I spent that much money on shampoo and conditioner and makes my hair look terrible. It smells good but that's about it. Save your money... would NOT recommend.

                        Comments about Living Proof Perfect hair Day (PhD) Shampoo:

                        I have extremely oily hair and skin and a massive amount of hair to top it off. I have always struggled with feeling gross at the end of the day. I had colored my hair to the inch of death so I actually started with the LivingProof Repair (the purplish bottle, which I loved but put too much moisture in my hair after maybe 3 uses, so it's my backup if my hair is oddly dry, but not for daily use). After I got my hair healthy again I bought this one. My hair stays clean and smelling great all day. I'll also mention, I'm allergic to EVERYTHING. I've tried a lot of different shampoos without success that lasted for more than a few weeks before the rash and hives in my hair started up again. I'm super weary of new beauty products, but I was desperate for shampoo that didn't make my head break out every time I used it. This product doesn't. It's wonderful not wanting to pull my hair out from my allergies every day.

                        I received the hairspray in my Fabfitfun box and fell in love! The only store I could find it in is Ulta, so I bought the big stuff and ran home to try! I love this shampoo/conditioner and the whole line! Great for daily use and doesn't weigh my thin hair down!

                        Service and delivery comments:

                        I bought my set inside an Ulta store, it was my first time at an Ulta, and I feel like I found my new favorite store!!! The atmosphere was great, the employees were awesome, and they had everything I needed and more. The products were displayed in a way that made it easy to find Living Proof, and the product itself was phenomenal.

                            Living Proof Timeless is for beautiful, ageless hair. It is a clinical, problem – solution line that supplements the things you lose as you age to keep your hair in the best condition. You'll typically start incorporating it into your routine in your 30s.

                            Living Proof Perfect hair Day is a simplified solution that keeps generally healthy hair looking beautiful and healthy.
