Comments about Living Proof Restore Shampoo:

I love this line. It smells great and my hair feels amazing after just one use. This brand is expensive for me, and unfortunately has a lot of bad for you chemicals. I use it sparingly, because of the cost. The restore hair mask and conditioner are amazing as well.

              I get my hair highlighted about 3-4 times a year but its very fine so dries out easily. I started using this about two years ago. Its a little pricey so i tried to switch to another brand, but my hair is just not the same (healthy) when I don't use this brand.

                        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. Restore transforms dry, damaged hair to look and behave as if it was never damaged at all. It is focused on restoring strength back to hair. You should use Restore is dryness, damage and breakage is your top concern. Depending on your major concerns, I would consider one of the two lines.

                      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.
