FREE Perfect Hair Day 5-In-1 Styling Treatment w/ any $24 Living Proof purchase
To style hair with volume and texture, it takes significant time, energy, and skill, and the results often fall flat. Why? The stiff resins used in most volumizing and texturizing products can easily break, so volume and texture don't stand a chance against everyday forces like wind, humidity, and even touch. Plus, their heavy ingredients weigh hair down and attract dirt, so hair needs to be washed, styled, and restyled often - which is both damaging and time consuming.

Amp2 is powered by Living Proof's Meta-Volume Technology, a revolutionary complex of polymers and their patented Volumizing Molecule (PBAE) which:
  • Deposits microscopic thickening dots between each hair strand for touchable volume
  • Instantly provides touchable volume, moldable texture and flexible hold on dry hair
  • Makes style flexible and remoldable, so hair is never stiff or frozen and remains touchable and revivable for up to 48 hours

For fine to medium hair with layers. Sulfate-free, silicone-free and oil-free. Safe for color and chemically treated hair.

(2.0 oz.)
Rub a small dab of Amp evenly between hands until the product is transparent. Apply to clean, dry hair starting in the underneath sections of hair. Lift and muss hair as you work it in to desired style. Avoid direct application to scalp or applying in a downward motion.

            I have baby fine poker straight hair with zero body. I subscribed to Dominique Sachse on you tube. My hair never looked very good so I followed her recommendation of sulfate free shampoo (I use Blonde Idol), got2bfatastic mousse, living proof texturizer and kenra 25. To see what to do with these products check her out on you tube. My hair has NEVER looked better! It is healthy, shiny and full of body.

                    I love Living Proof overall. I use the full thickening cream everyday. I also like night cap. The full conditioner works great with my hair because I have very fine hair--it doesn't weigh it down at all. I bought amp after reading about it on-line. I thought it would be the perfect product for my hair. The first time I used it, my hair looked great when I left home, but by the time I got to work it was very flat and weighed down. I tried it again yesterday with less product -- worked better and I used more hair spay with it. I will use it, but not a lot. I need to find the right amount to use. The texurizng spray works better for my hair because it doesn't weigh it down I think I need to use a very very small amount and it just creates some waves. I do not think this is a good product for fine hair.....I would imagine that amp would work best on people with thick hair. It smells great, but I will not buy it again.

                          • Q:

                            Can this be used in long hair that has been curled with a curling iron? Currently I use the iron then tousle the curls with a dry texture spray. I'm looking to replace the spray with another product that creates fullness and lift like dry texture spray. Thanks!

                              Yes, absolutely these two products can be used together! For best results, apply Perfect Hair Day (PhD) 5-in-1 Styling Treatment to damp hair from roots to ends, then blow dry or let hair air dry. Once hair is dry, rub a pea-sized amount of Amp2 between hands until translucent and muss through hair for volume and texture. Apply to ends for definition. We cannot stress enough that a little goes a long way when it comes to Amp2! :-)

                            I have seen this product amp2 Instant Texture Volumizer advertised as cone-free. In reviewing the ingredients, I noticed it has polymers. Polymers are silicones. How can they say it is cone-free?

                              Amp2 is silicone free.

                              Silicones are a class of materials that use siloxanes as the backbone. You are correct in assuming most (but not all) silicones are polymers. Now a polymer is a material that has repeating units of similar ‘blocks’ of materials. Dimethicone is the most commonly used silicone in hair care and is also a polymer – chemically know as polydimethylsiloxane. This is a heavy material that tends to weigh hair down and make hair feel prematurely dirty. That said, not all polymers are silicones. Amp2 uses carefully chosen styling polymers that don’t have the same properties as silicones.
