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).

        Love product but pump doesn't work

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

        I am on my second bottle of this product. It leaves my hair super soft but not greasy or weighed down. Unfortunately the product barely comes out with each pump. Really disappointed as it's too expensive to just throw out.

        I fried my hair by bleaching it which made me have to cut a lot off but was still left with crispy ends, but this made a huge difference, smelled great, and not greasy at all...I actually didn't wash it out one morning and left it in all 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.

        • Q:

          I wash my hair daily, will it be as effective if I use it and wash the next morning?

            A:

            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.

          Is this product color safe?- I see it says long lasting vibrant color but it doesn't exactly specify.

        • Q:

          I have naturally curly hair but I keep it straight. Will this product curl my hair? Very wet products make my hair go back to curly.

          1 answer

          • Staff Expert

            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.

        • Q:

          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?

          • Staff Expert

            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.

        • Q:

          I know you can use Night Cap on damp or dry hair, but how do you get the most benefits out of it, on freshly shampooed damp hair, or dry hair?

        • Q:

          Can you use the Night Cap Overnight Perfector on oily hair? What other Perfect Hair Day products would you recommend for oily and fine hair?

            A:

            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!

          Do I use this In place of normal conditioner? I only need shampoo and use this? Is that correct?

            A:

            This product does not replace your rinse-out conditioner. This is an overnight leave-in treatment that you apply to damp, towel dried hair. Please see the "How to Use" section in the product description for details.

          Should this be used daily between shampoos or just once every few days?

            A:

            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!
