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 put a quarter sized amount in my palm and apply it to the ends of my hair. Then I comb through and scrunch my hair. That's it :-)

        I'm not sure I could tell a big difference. I love the Living Proof Dry shampoo and won't be without the Dry Volume Blast. But, I don't know that I can tell that I even used anything with this. It does smell good. And it's easy to use. And my hair styled fine. But, I have stick straight, thick hair. It didn't look any different than it normally did.

            Love this styling cream. I can not find anything like it. I have thin hair and it doesn't weigh my hair down or make it unmanageable. I can still run my fingers thorough my hair.

                I received this as a sample with one of my Ulta orders. I have fine wavy hair that is easily weighed down. This did not weigh my hair down. I have a problem with products making my hair look greasy. This did not. It is very light weight it made my hair look and feel thicker. It smoothed all of my frizz and added a bit of shine. I've used this twice and both times my hair looked amazing. I will be ordering this soon.

                          • 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
