        Comments about Living Proof Restore Instant Repair:

        I love this product, I use it along with the damage repair shampoo and conditioner as well as the perfect hair day lotion. I have to flat iron and blow dry my hair daily and before using this product nothing i tried helped to reduce the split ends and little white balls that formed at the ends and throughout the strands. After just one use of these products I could notice a difference. Its expensive but its so worth it if you have damaged hair like I do!

            I absolutely love this product!! It's is well worth the money! I use this everytime I wash my hair and it gives m the most manageable, flowy, bouncy hair I've had in years. I blow dry and flat iron almost everyday and this has helped my hair look healthier and shinier.

            Just Don't Bother.

              Comments about Living Proof Restore Instant Repair:

              I am embarrassed that I spent this much money on such a small, ineffective product. This is a highly fragranced, lotion-like substance that is far too expensive. I have very long, fine hair that is dry at the ends. This did soften my hair a little, and gave it a nice, natural-looking shine. But, it did nothing more (perhaps even less) than an average drugstore product. It smells good, but the fragrance irritated my skin wherever my hair touched my skin. Since fragrance is listed toward the end of the ingredients list, I know that I can't use any of the other Living Proof products because it is listed much higher on those (indicating there's a greater amount.)

              I wasn't looking for a miracle product, because they do not exist. That being said, I was expecting much more from a product that is so expensive. Living Proof seems to maintain most of its success on its marketing, claiming to be "silicone and oil-free," appealing to the masses who believe silicones and oils are bad for hair. Silicones and oils are not bad for your hair, it's simply a matter of what texture and effect you're looking for.

              In other words, I would pass on this product. There are plenty of well-formulated drugstore products that are just as effective, or more so, and offered at a much better price-point.

                This stuff does not weigh my hair down at all! Makes my hair feel really soft. I started using it from a sample I received, when I ran out my hair didn't look as shiny & didn't feel soft on the ends. So even though it's more than I usually spend on this kind of hair product I had to have it, worth every penny!

                  I got this product as a sample and was pretty unsure about it. I dye my hair all the time and blow dry it too. I have really thick hair and it's a medium length. I started using this and I'm in love. my hair gets really puffy and frizzy when I dry it and using this helps so much. Makes a huge difference. I will be a permanent user of this product.

                    I received a sample of the product, and one little sample gave me about 6 uses (.33 FL OZ sample). I used it both ways; on damp hair and on dry hair. Either way, there was no greasy residue, and my hair was shinier, less frizzy, and far more manageable. I've not found anything that compares.

                      For the past few months, my hair has become so brittle and thin due to daily use of hot hair tools, monthly dye jobs (i love changing my look), and typical Chicago weather changes. I just received this product last weekend along with Living Proofs Full Thickening creme and I could not be happier with my purchase! It makes my hair incredibly soft, and it already feels back to my normal thickness and strength.. I cannot stop talking about the great benefits of this product - yes, it is a bit pricey, but you really don't need to use a ton to get great results. I am now a Living Proof Customer :)

                      • Q:

                        How will this work for 3c natural curls and is it necessary to use the styling cream too or just one product ? Are there any real benefits to using the whole line as opposed to cocktail ing? Thank you��

                          Restore Instant Repair is formulated for all hair types and textures and is the ideal leave-in treatment to help prevent breakage for longer, stronger hair. Although Restore products are designed to be used as a regimen to repair damaged, weakened hair, you can certainly integrate Restore products individually into your existing regimen. This product instantly repairs existing split ends while preventing 93% of new split ends, and it strengthens hair, leaving it 50% stronger after just 1 use!

                          For best results, we recommend using in conjunction with a heat protectant such as Restore Instant Protection to protect hair from heat styling up to 450 degrees:
