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

        I've been using this product for approx. 4 months and have noticed a huge improvement. I always wash my dry, coarse-ish hair every other day. With other shampoos, my hair looked dry and frizzy on day 1 and felt limp on day 2. My scalp was constantly irritated from either dryness or buildup. Since using PHD, my hair is smoother, my scalp is itch-free, and my hair looks & feels just as good on day 2 as it did the day I washed it. I've been getting compliments, saying it looks thicker (it feels thicker!) and a friend even switched to this shampoo just based on the changes she saw in my hair. My one and only complaint is that I bought two liter sizes and both of them had a broken pump. So, maybe some better packaging would be useful, but the product itself is fantastic!

                It reflects your hair color, so my gray hair is less noticeable.

                    I use this shampoo every other day, and sometimes every 3rd day because I don't have to wash as often! Great smell. A little pricey, but so worth it. I noticed a difference in my hairs health from day one.

                      This product was recommended to me by a hair stylist. Unfortunately, my scalp began to itch and flake as a result of using this shampoo and conditioner. It also made my hair fall out. I understand that hair falls out normally during showers, but this was excessive. It also caused itchy bumps along my scalp line. Very unhappy with this product.

                      I bought some travel size bottles the other day, usually they are always out of one of them and finally they had both the shampoo and conditioner so I bought them! I will be buying the full size bottles because I love it!! The conditioner smells a little weird but it makes your hair super soft!! The shampoo smells amazing! I wanna try the volumizing shampoo and conditioner too because I have very thin, flat hair. I will review those as well!! Would definitely recommend this to my friends!

                          As Living proof has no silicones can u mix and match with other products that do have silicones(I.e. Styling products, leave-in conditioners) will Livingproof still work and/or should u remove silicone build up in your hair before using any living proof products?

                            You can absolutely mix and match Living Proof products with silicone products, if you don't already have existing concerns with silicones. But if you find you're switching your hair care products frequently because of product build up or they "just stop working" we recommend you stick with Living Proof products exclusively to start a silicone free routine.
