              My hair was in horrible condition...I'm a brunette...very dark natural color. Anyway, my hair was highlighted beyond good sense, add in daily flat iron use along with daily shampoos and you have a walking fuzzball. After 2 weeks, my hair looked incredible. I've been using it for 6 months. I returned to my natural color and I have beautiful, shiny hair again! Yes, it's expensive, but I don't shampoo daily. I can go 3 days without a wash. My new hairstylist cannot believe my hair was in bad shape 6 months ago. Buy this product line! I use Restore.

                This is the first shampoo I've ever used that doesn't make my hair greasy looking in 12 hours. I am now able to wash my hair every other day. My hair is color treated and still gets some tangles but it is soft and looks healthy. The only con to this item is the price, but it won't stop me from buying it.

                  Over the last seven years my hair has changed dramatically. I have gone mostly gray by 30 and as a result have to dye more frequently. My hair has suffered as a result. After the first shampoo with the product I noticed a significant difference. I have used it several weeks now and the texture feels more healthy and youthful. I am very happy with the results.

                            Comments about Living Proof Restore Shampoo:

                            I used it several times. I was excited to try, and the first few times it seemed fine along with the sample of conditioner I received. I actually liked the samples better than the restore formula. Within a couple of weeks I began to feel my hair becoming course and dried out. I stopped using this product. Luckily hair is back to normal.

                            • Q:

                              My hair is bleached and brightly colored blue. I'm wanting to move away from silicone products that seem to prevent my hair from absorbing nutrients and moisture, but after using Morrocon Oil treatment for months I know I have a buildup. I'm afraid of clarifying because of the color. But I don't want to use the Living Proof and it not be effective at adding much needed moisture because the lack of sulphates (a good thing) don't wash out the silicone buildup. Advice appreciated.

                                Restore Shampoo and Conditioner are both safe for use on color-treated hair and feature our Healthy Hair Molecule, OFPMA, to ensure hair is clean and free of build-up without stripping your color. The shampoo will still lather so you can still enjoy the same cleansing experience of other shampoos. If you are seeking added conditioning however, the Restore Mask can be used once a week to give you softer, shinier hair.

                              I don't color my hair, and I'm 57 years old - so greying. It seems to be getting dry so looking for a shampoo that works well with greying, wavy, fine hair. I usually wash it every day - it gets pretty whacked out while sleeping - there seems to be a mixture of comments on this product and was wondering if this was the best solution for my hair.

                                Restore Shampoo will work well, but we'd also recommend the new Timeless Shampoo. This will not only hydrate your hair, but also help combat the signs of aging hair as well.

                                Living Proof Restore Shampoo is ideal for dry, damaged hair in need of repair and hydration. Since it is free of oil and silicone, it is very lightweight and rinses clean. When used as a complete system, Restore products strengthen hair to become 20x more resistant to breakage.

                                Yes! Because this shampoo is formulated without any heavy oils or silicones (like all Living Proof products), it provides weightless cleansing with no build-up. Restore Shampoo helps to strengthen hair against breakage and to add moisture and softness to dry and/or damaged hair.

                              My hair is both fine and curly, not cork screw curly, but curly. It tends to be drier due to the curly texture and I do highlight and lowlight the crown area. Is Restore my best option? When I go to places like Mexico my hair frizzes. Would I then use the No Frizz products? Thank you for your help.

                              I am interested in trying one of these products but I tend to get dry/itchy scalp. After 2 days it can get oily as well, However my ends feel dry and are breaking, I have color treated thick straight hair. Would any of the living proof line work for my hair and if so which one? Thank you!

                                For color-treated hair, we typically recommend the Restore line, especially if you are experiencing dryness and breakage, though all Living Proof products are safe to use on color-treated or chemically-treated hair. All Living Proof products are also sulfate-free, silicone-free, and oil-free, so they will not cause any added oiliness or weigh down your hair. Since LP's formulas are so gentle, they typically do not cause any issues with scalp irritation, though if you have a diagnosed scalp condition, we always recommend to first consult your physician.

                              I have thin fine hair that I color and perm regularly. Is this product safe for permed hair?

                                Living Proof Restore Shampoo is ideal for dry, damaged hair. It is sulfate-free, silicone-free, oil-free, and safe for color- and chemically-treated hair including permed hair.
