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.

    Comments about Living Proof Travel Size Perfect Hair Day (PhD) 5-in-1 Styling Treatment:

    I love the shine, fully body, the great fragrance.
    I have ethnic hair and it still delivered. The one issue is with frizz at the roots. I dealt with that using Amp at just the roots to control some of the frizz. Even after the next day my hair is still super moisturized and shiny.

          I bought this product after trying the no frizz product. I tried this alone and with the no frizz. Neither product controlled my hair either individually or combined. Very disappointed since I read several reviews on website that said it worked to control curly/coarse hair. Stylist in the store said this was THE product to use for my hair type.

              Comments about Living Proof Travel Size Perfect Hair Day (PhD) 5-in-1 Styling Treatment:

              I purchased this product because the salon associate said it would be the best product to control the effects of humidity on my hair. Big mistake! My hair felt heavy and bulky. I couldn't run my fingers through my hair. It was getting snarled really easily. I could not wait to wash it out of my hair. This is the worst hair product I have tried in a long time. My search continues for that holy grail product that helps with the frizz during the horrible humid summers I have to endure.

                    I use this 5 in 1 product mostly on the crown of my head(scalp) and I use Morrocan oil and a heat protector spray on my ends. I love it! I even noticed that it helped control my frizzy hair. It adds a small amount of volume and does not cause buildup or dandruff. Great product. This small bottle lasts forever since I only use a tiny squeeze(about a dime sized amount).

                          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.
