Science

The problem: Existing solutions don't deliver the right amount of hold and conditioning to define and control curls with strong curl patterns.

The solution: Curl Defining Styling Cream defines and controls strong curl patterns with Extended Curl Memory technology plus long-wear, flexible resins, (not typically used in hair care), to create weatherproof curls that stay beautiful, defined and frizz-free.

Powered by Extended Curl Memory technology featuring Living Proof's patented Healthy Hair Molecule (OFPMA), an optimized emollient and polymer blend and time-release conditioners that: 

  • Repels humidity for superior frizz protection. Curls last 2x longer.
  • Provides residue-free cuticle smoothing for long-lasting curl definition
  • Delivers touchable hold for long-lasting, resilient curls

Finally, life-proof curls: Beautiful, frizz free, and defined - and stay that way 2x longer. 

Extended Curl Memory technology featuring:

  • OFPMA: Repels humidity for superior frizz protection and keeps hair cleaner, longer.
  • Time-released conditioning: Provides residue-free cuticle smoothing for long-lasting curl definition
  • Optimized balanced emollient and polymer blend: Delivers flexible hold for delivers long-lasting, resilient touchable curls


Apply to clean, damp hair and evenly distribute. The total amount used will vary by hair density, length and porosity, but start with a quarter size amount and distribute evenly from root to tip. For best results, let hair air dry or heat style using a diffuser.

Tips:
  • Hair should be mostly wet (but not sopping) when applying cream to ensure even distribution.
  • Section hair & evenly apply through each section by raking through with fingers.
  • To enhance curls, scrunch hair into a towel.
  • To elongate curls, comb damp hair well before applying product. This will elongate your natural curl pattern. Do not scrunch.
  • To shape curls, wrap them around your finger or pen to create definition, particularly framing the face.
  • If your hair is frizz prone, don't touch or disrupt curls until they completely dry; in general air drying is a best practice.
  • To reactivate curls, apply No Frizz Weightless Spray to dry hair. This will reactivate the hold and conditioning of the Styler.
  • You can also add water to the Curl Styling Cream, mix in hand and apply to dry hair to reactivate curl pattern.
  • To boost the level of hold, you can combine the Cream with Curl Styling Mousse. Cocktail the two together by layering them into hair.

Good product- not for fine hair

      Comments about Living Proof Travel Size Curl Defining Styling Cream:

      This isn't my favorite product for my curly hair. I prefer Living Proof's styling primer. This product felt too heavy for my hair; I have very fine hair. I could feel the residue of the product in my hair after it dried.

          This Prut is a bit heavier than other but is great for pushing curls in at the end of a perm.

                Comments about Living Proof Travel Size Curl Defining Styling Cream:

                I have been using Deva Curl products exclusively for quite a few years, but I was a little dissatisfied with all their after-shampoo products, as anything more than the tiniest amount seemed to weigh down my hair, but using too little meant that the product wasn't working.

                So, I bought a small travel size of this, squeezed a bit of it into my towel-dried hair, and was very happy with how soft and bouncy my curls were. It also smells wonderful - sort of "green" and fresh. I just bought a full-size bottle. It is a bit pricey, but it's worth it for "happy" hair.

                        Although it is an expensive product I had to try it! I heard great reviews that I had to try for myself. I have thick, frizzy wavy/ curly hair and this product made miracles happen!! I use to use a lot of products to tame my hair. But this product met all my expectations.
