  • Contains time-release fragrance delivers a light, clean scent throughout the day.

Love this stuff

By Katie E.

Comments about Living Proof Perfect hair Day (PhD) Dry Shampoo:

Smells amazing and it leaves my hair full of body and without the grease. I am trying to only wash my hair 3-4 times a week, so this stuff works great. My only concern is that it leaves my hair very dry on the third day. I believe its only where my blond highlights are but either way the smell and non-greese formula is a WIN!

    I have used so many dry shampoos and none of them compare to this one. It doesn't leave a sticky, gross texture in my hair. It actually feels and looks CLEAN! I can't stop raving.

                Comments about Living Proof Perfect hair Day (PhD) Dry Shampoo:

                I have pretty curly/wavy hair so I don't actually use dry shampoo that often, but I do color my hair a dark red, so when I do that I try to not wash my hair very often to preserve the color and the blowout. I've tried a number of different dry shampoos trying to find one that would allow me to extend not washing my hair, but everything just seemed to fall short, and leave my hair feeling gritty and matted. This stuff is in a league of it's own. I went days without washing my hair, and it looked as fresh and nice as the day I had my hair done. I really didn't want to love this product because it was so expensive, but it is worth every penny. Lucky for me I only straighten my hair for the first few weeks after getting it colored, but I will absolutely continue to use this each time I color my hair.

                        The Dry Shampoo is appropriate for any hair type. If you have oils or silicones or a strong hold hairspray in your hair already, you may need to use a brush and hair dryer to help remove the powders.
