Features:

  • Delivers the five benefits for a perfect hair day in one easy step- smoothness, volume, conditioning, strength and polish
  • Styles and treats without compromising one for the other
  • Keeps your style cleaner, longer
  • Transforms hair to its optimal condition
  • Reduces breakage by 78%, making hair 4.5x stronger
  • Repels dirt and oil to extend your style and allow you to wash your hair less often


The Science:

Silicones and oils are traditionally used to treat hair but they also can build up, attract dirt and oil and weigh hair down. Resins are used to create volume, but they can be stiff, easily flake and are short-lived. And forget about trying to combine silicones, oils and resins together. They simply don't mix, and this leads to bad hair day after bad hair day.

Scientists figured out a way to deliver it all. PhD 5-in-1 Styling Treatment is powered by their two award-winning, patented molecules, OFPMA and PBAE, for volume, smoothness and treatment in one breakthrough, routine-changing step for beautiful, healthy hair.

For all hair types. All Living Proof products are sulfate-free, silicone-free and oil-free. Safe and formulated for color and chemically treated hair.

On clean, damp hair, evenly distribute PhD Styling Treatment from roots to ends. Comb through. For best results, blow dry.

                    I love the way this aids in styling, and love the way it controls the frizzies after a little straightening through the top layers of my hair. Also works well with scrunching my waves and leaving hair to air-dry.

                      • Q:

                        I recently purchased PHD 5 in 1 hair treatment, and I have very very thick hair. My normal hair routine is to wash with PHD Good Hair Day Shampoo and Conditioner, let it air dry, then straighten and curl my hair in the morning. I do use heat protectant on my hair as I'm straightening and curling. Can I put the 5 in 1 product in my hair when it is wet, or is it best to apply when wet. I don't need more volume, I like the fact that it repels dirt and oil. All advice and tips would be greatly appreciated. Thank you

                          A:

                          PhD 5-in-1 is to be used on damp hair, the product does indeed have heat protection in it as well.

                      • Q:

                        How do I use this product on long hair? How much should I use and it is it applied to roots and tips?

                          A:

                          On clean, damp hair, evenly distribute PHD styler from roots to ends. Comb through. For best results, blow dry. For long hair, we recommend starting with a nickel-sized amount.
