Ask a Question

Perfect Hair Day (PhD) Night Cap Overnight Perfector is the ultimate beauty sleep for your hair. This easy-to-use solution gives you one week of shiny, vibrant, and more manageable hair overnight, and the benefits that last up to 5 shampoos. Apply it at night (to dry or damp hair), go to sleep, and wake up to this:

  • Shiny hair for days. Weightless radiance refractors outperform silicones and oils.
  • Long-lasting, vibrant color. Patented Healthy Hair Molecule (OFPMA) combined with long-lasting cuticle sealing technology helps smooth the cuticle and reduce pigment loss.
  • More manageable hair. Amino acids condition and protect against your daily styling habits and other environmental assaults.
  • Overnight results that last. These benefits last all week (up to 5 shampoos).


Night Cap is weightless, pillow safe, and perfect for all hair types.

Apply to dry or damp hair before bed. Start with 2-3 pumps, spreading product evenly between your hands and then distributing from root to tip, focusing on the ends. Use more depending on your hair's thickness and length. Comb through and leave in overnight. Wake up and style (or wash it out if it's a shampoo day).

Good for older (47 years old) processed hair

By ISO Great Hair

from Florence, SC

Verified Buyer

Comments about Living Proof Perfect Hair Day (PhD) Night Cap Overnight Perfector:

This softens dry, processed hair. My hair is colored, older and dry on the ends. Before I go to bed, I massage a small amount into my hair, and combing it through with a wide tooth comb before bed, this product soaks into the dry strands and my hair is much softer in the morning. This does not have to be done every night. I wash my hair every other day. This line of hair care products is so gentle and works so well. I have tried a lot of hair products and Living Proof is hard to beat.

I am thrilled with this product. I got a sample and boy am I glad I did. it makes my hair silky soft and manageable with such workable body. It looks and feels as if there is no product in my hair at all. This is truly hair heaven. I've been using it for awhile now and have only wonderful things to say about it. I look like I just have naturally amazing hair now. I don't know of anything else like it. I recommend this highly.

      Comments about Living Proof Perfect Hair Day (PhD) Night Cap Overnight Perfector:

      I bought it with the hopes of my hair air drying better overnight and reducing my annoying frizz, and while I guess it did reduce frizz, it seems to leave my hair oily looking and just kind of limp. It's okay, not the best, but not the worst product I've ever bought. For the price, I expected more.

            Comments about Living Proof Perfect Hair Day (PhD) Night Cap Overnight Perfector:

            This stuff is Gisele Bundchen hair in a bottle, it is that amazing.
            My hair is long, naturally curly, medium in texture but lots of it, and I have been a salon blonde-all over highlights for years. The coloring definitely takes it's toll on my curls, which can tend toward dryness. I have to be careful and treat my hair well. My hair is in pretty decent shape considering, but I am always looking for things to help take it to that next level of softness and amazingness. I already use the Living Proof Restore line to help 'heal' my blonde (I had a salon color issue and this helped tremendously) and it's always done a pretty great job. I received the Night Cap as a free sample and holy smokes I'm actually blown away. I used it at night, on 2 day old hair and the next morning I woke up and my hair was soft and shinier, and felt a bit fuller, not a bit weighed down. Maybe a bit less tangled, which is a feat with curls. The real wow came when I used it after cleansing and conditioning though. I used it as a leave in conditioner prior to any styling products along with the Restore Leave In (extra moisture). Once dry, my curls looked amazing. Bouncy, vibrant, shiny, and full. Not a synthetic shine but a satiny sheen of healthy looking hair. So touchable, my hair doesn't feel like there is any product in at all. It's like your hair but much much much better--this gives you hair that looks happy! Will be buying full size asap.

            I tried this on dry hair first and I saw absolutely no difference the next morning. Also I have fine shoulder length hair and it took a lot more product than it said was needed. So I the next night I put it on damp hair. I usedl less product because I could comb it thru better. And I still wasn't impressed. Plus its a hassle to wet hair, apply product and dry my hair because I can't sleep with wet hair. I'm very disappointed it didn't work for me.

                  Yes it will. Think of this product like any overnight mask you use for your skin that you would normally wash out in the morning, as well.

                  A:

                  Although Night Cap dries very quickly once put in the hair, it's possible that it will make naturally curly hair that has been straightened revert back to a wave or curl a bit. That said, it probably will just need a quick touch up the next day.

                  We recommend brushing it through thoroughly after applying so that it speeds the drying process up.

                I know you can use this on dry hair but what about dry hair that has had product in it all day. Will it penetrate through styling products, hair spray etc or do you have to wash this out before applying?

                  A:

                  We recommend to not apply Night Cap over a silicone or oil-based serum because it minimizes the ability for it to soak into your hair. We suggest that if you have a lot of styling product in your hair, to brush your hair before applying Night Cap to help remove any residue.

                  Yes, you can use this on oily hair. Night Cap can be washed out the following day and you'll still get the same benefits. The PhD Dry Shampoo is great for oily hair. It will absorb and remove dirt so hair stays cleaner longer. The PhD Shampoo and Conditioner in this line keep hair cleaner longer so these are great products for oily hair, too. Enjoy!

                  We suggest using the PhD Night Cap 1-2x a week. This product can be applied to damp or dry hair, prior to bed. Night Cap is very lightweight, fast absorbing and pillow safe! Applying this product more than 1-2x a week will not hurt, however, it is not necessary as the benefits will last through 5 shampoos!
