Comments about Living Proof Perfect Hair Day (PhD) 5-in-1 Styling Treatment:

I bought this with the PhD shampoo and conditioner. It smells amazing. I was excited about the 5-in1 idea. But, it was a letdown. My naturally curly hair still needed some curl cream and root lifter. I'm guessing this might be a great product for straight, healthy hair. Not for everyone like it claims. Bummer.

    Great product! It does everything, keeps your style looking great all a
    Day and even keeps the static down. It gives me the perfect amount of volume. It's a small bottle but you only use a dime size amount each time so I feel it will last a long time.

      Comments about Living Proof Perfect Hair Day (PhD) 5-in-1 Styling Treatment:

      I liked that it was 5 in one. That made a lot of sense to me. Clear out a shelf for one product? Count me in. Two weeks later and I'm still experimenting with it. Too much, greasy lifeless hair. Too little, why bother? Applying at the roots left it lifeless. It works best on just washed hair, in fact I love it for this use. However, without this product I can go 3-4 days after a shampoo. I use a lot of dry shampoo the next day to revive the my hair to rid the greasy feeling. Apply only to the outer 2/3 of the hair. I have dry, wavy hair that is color treated. Jury is out.

              Great product. Probably one of the best I have used. I don't use or buy the shampoo so I dont know how they work together. I did have to adjust the amount to get the results I was looking for, but this only took trying it twice.

                I absolutely LOVE this product, I use it twice a week as a leave in treatment after washing my hair and it really works miracles. I have fine hair and I find that this product makes my hair thicker and it feels stronger. It leaves my hair with nice soft waves and it just feels healthier overall. It's a little pricey but it's worth every penny. I'd much rather invest in a product that really works instead of buying cheaper products that do not get the job done. Two thumbs up girls :)

                      You can absolutely use PHD Styling Treatment in conjunction with other styling products including the Full Thickening Cream. Both feature lightweight formulas that won't weigh hair down.

                      Yes, Living Proof Perfect Hair Day (PhD) 5-in-1 Styling Treatment does have volumizing benefits. To enhance body and volume, use a round brush when blow drying. Use with Full Root Lifting Spray or Full Thickening Mousse for added volume.

                      A:

                      Full Root Lifting Spray is a spray that you apply to the crown of your head for a vertical lift right at the roots. Full Thickening Cream should be applied to wet hair for all over body. Amp2 is an instant volumizer and texturizer used on dry hair. You can apply it to your hair to get some instant volume, wave, piece-y looks, etc., depending on how you style it.

                      Yes, PHD works wonderfully to smooth coarse, frizzy hair! If your hair is thick, we recommend using a liberal amount. On clean, damp hair, evenly distribute PHD styler from roots to ends. Comb through. For best results, blow dry.
