Comments about Living Proof Timeless Pre-Shampoo Treatment:

Just started using to help maintain my color. It coats the hair & seems to weigh it down. I was using every shampoo & found that was too much ( shampoo every 3 days). I'm thinking I'll use it right after I color and every 3'd shampoo.

Pricey, but nice

About Me Beauty Conscious

Pros

  • Adds Shine
  • Improves Hair Health

Cons

  • Takes a lot of product for coverage

Best Uses

  • First few shampoos after color

Comments about Living Proof Timeless Pre-Shampoo Treatment:

I suppose if we're buying the Living Proof line anyway, we're not surprised at the price of a bottle of the pre-shampoo... but I have thick hair, and it takes so much to cover it! I bought the travel size, and it's gone after four uses. Because of the price, I've saved it for the first two shampoos after a color appointment. It does make my hair soft, but so does the shampoo and conditioner alone. Does it preserve my color? There was some color on my (white) hair towel, but my color still looks pretty good. I guess I'm on the fence about this, and I don't know if I'll buy it again.

    • Color Protection..?

    Comments about Living Proof Timeless Pre-Shampoo Treatment:

    Not quite sure how much this product actually helped keep my color. You have to remember to use it for at least 5 minutes prior to shampooing. I usually used it at least 30 minutes prior to shampooing. I think the conditioner "Vibrant Sexy Hair - Color Guard" may have given me more color protection than this Living Proof color protection pre treatment. I think next time I'll save my money and just use the Sexy Hair color guard and see if the results are the same..

      Comments about Living Proof Timeless Pre-Shampoo Treatment:

      The first time I used this after coloring my hair hardly any color was washed out. Usually I see a lot of the red wash down the drain. Not when using this product. My color lasts longer. Both me and my daughter now use this. We both dye our hair red and notice it keeps the color longer.

      Another Great Product From Living Proof

      By Lynn

      from Lady Lake FL

      Comments about Living Proof Timeless Pre-Shampoo Treatment:

      I started using Living Proof products a year or so ago. I feel my hair is healthier since using their products. I know for certain the Restore Products work as well as the Perfect Hair Day line. I recently bought the Timeless shampoo, conditioner and pre-shampoo treatment. I feel my hair is softer and somewhat fuller since using the products. The pre-shampoo treatment smells wonderful. I read another review where the fragrance was an issue. I, on the other hand, like the fragrance and don't think it is too heavy. I use the treatment at bedtime. When I wake up, my hair looks pretty good. The only negative comment would be there is no instruction on the bottle as to how much to use. Three to four pumps seems to work for me....my hair is shoulder length.

                    I hate the price of this product -- it's very expensive. I may have to sell one of my kidneys to keep affording it -- but I will do what it takes to keep buying it. It's fabulous. I really thought it was a bunch of bunk to use a pre-shampoo -- but man, what a difference it makes in both the look and feel of my hair and the staying power of my dye. I can't say enough good about this product. I just wish I didn't have to resort to selling organs to afford it!

                      I'm not sure how much product to apply. The tips say use 1-2 pumps per section. But how big is a section, or how many sections should I divide it in to? I have long, medium thickness hair.
                      Should the product remain damp on the hair or should it be completely absorbed. Thanks!

                        A:

                        The main goal is to make sure you apply the product to your entire head of hair, root to ends, especially if you are using this product for color retention. Section hair into sections where you feel you can coat your hair evenly and well using 1-2 or more given your long, medium, thick hair. Ensure you get all sides, top and underneath of your hair. Leave the product on hair for a few minutes to dry down to make sure your hair has absorbed what it needs. Five minutes is a safe bet. Then hop in the shower, get hair wet, rinsing excess product then shampooing as usual to activate the color protection.

                    • Q:

                      So when you use this the night before or 5 mins before you get into the shower, do you rinse this out then apply regular shampoo after? Or does this product act like the shampoo? Really wanting to get this since I dye my hair.

                      I see it works to help keep color with colored hair, but is that for most normal hair dye? What abouts reds, purples, blues and greens.

                    • Q:

                      I understand that this product must be used at least several minutes, or even overnight, prior to showering/washing hair. I use a dry shampoo every other day on my color treated hair. Obviously I wouldn't use this prior to applying the dry shampoo, but this product would be applied to hair that has dry shampoo in it from the prior day (or morning the same day if I would apply your product before sleeping anticipating morning showering). Question is will my color or effectiveness of your product be changed when applied to hair that has remnants from using a dry shampoo?
