My fine hair has never been better or lasted longer

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

    I have very fine, straight hair that never lasts more than 24 hours before it looks gross. With this, I have been blow drying at night, sleeping with it in a loose bun, spray some in the morning and I can get 2-3 days out of my blow dry. I have tried everything from really cheap to really expensive dry shampoos and this is the only one that leaves my hair actually looking clean. (Clean enough to wear down on day 2&3.)

    I use this almost everyday and it lasts me about 7 weeks, so the price is really not that bad.

    I absolutely love this stuff

          Having very curly hair I like to straighten it sometimes. I don't wash my hair everyday and in order to keep my styles fresh I use this product! It immediately eliminates any signs of grease to give you a fresh look. When you first spray it it's going to look white, let it sit on your hair for about 20-30 seconds, then vigorously massage it into your hair until it looks gorgeous again.

              I workout in the mornings and sometimes get really sweaty. I was skeptical at first, I have tried other dry shampoos that didn't work and left a creepy residue. This product smells like perfume, cleans awesome, and best of allc doesn't leave a residue. I would definitely buy again, very worth the price tag!

                  I read about this product in a magazine and was encouraged by an Ulta sales associate that this brand was very good. I've tried other dry shampoos, but this one by far, works the best and smells the best. It truly removes bad odor. I will buy this again and again. Worth every penny!

                      I've tried several different dry shampoos, including the better brands like Redken, but this is the only one that's been effective. Some people love their second day hair, but mine has always been oily and stringy - it NEVER looks better the day after a wash. I have fine hair and its colored so I know daily washing is not good for it. I received Living Proof PhD dry shampoo in a Birch Box and decided to give it a try. I love it! My hair looks fresher and almost the same as the day before. Some of the other products I've used start off well but by the end of the day my hair looks stringy and greasy again. This product doesn't do that. It's more money than I wanted to spend but I've decided it's worth it.

                              A:

                              It's not a clear formula, so some white residue, that is easy to remove, is normal and expected—especially if you have dark hair. To remove the white residue, rub and massage hair with fingers and/or use brush. A boar's bristle brush will be the most efficient in removing the powders. If white residue still exists, use a blow dryer.

                              PhD Dry Shampoo will remove sebum and oils. Volume sprays and hairsprays are mainly resin based products, so we recommend brushing through the hair before applying our Dry Shampoo.

                              Living Proof Perfect Hair Day (PhD) Dry Shampoo absorbs oil, sweat and odor and allows for easy removal, leaving virtually no visible residue or powdery build up. It is a great option for those with curly hair! For those with curly hair, just spray on, wait 30 seconds for the powders to activate and cleanse, then remove by massaging your hair using your fingertips.
