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.

      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.

                      Comments about Living Proof Travel Size Curl Defining Styling Cream:

                      This product is just what I was looking for; keep the natural curl and limit the air drying frizz. I just add this product to towel dried hair, being sure to get the ends where the frizz is worst, and the curl and wave looks great when completely dry. The only draw back is the product leaves a slightly 'wet' look to it - I prefer a more natural dry look, but I dislike frizz more.
