        I put a little in the palm of my hand, rub my hands together and put it in my hair - then blow dry.... it's as easy as that. My hair has no fly-aways, it looks good all day long and looks shiny. I love it!

              I normally don't rave about products and i absolutely love love love this line. I purchased the Shampoo, Conditioner, 5 in 1 and blow out spray. My hair is so soft, smells devine and stays looking beautiful for 3 days (my roots are typically oily and i have to wash every other day) The smell alone would have sold be but the product is fantastic.
              my only complaint is the bottle is hard to squeeze)

              perfect hair

              By lg

              from San Francisco

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

              I received this as a sample in an order, the packet was large enough to use 2-3 times. I was truly amazed with how my hair looked after using this! I have thick, long mid-back hair, that is ombr� dyed and body wave permed. My lengths and ends are seriously crunchy and dry while my bangs and crown get greasy. My bangs are the hardest to style and I usually have to blow dry then flat iron and use a product to get them to lay nicely without looking frizzed and too curly. I applied about a quarter sized amount to all of my hair from roots to ends and combed through, then I just parted in the middle and blow dried it most of the way dry. My hair just looked perfect. Everything laid down the way it's supposed to, I had volume at the crown without the ends frizzing out. It was shiny, my waves were defined, my bangs were perfect. This product will replace my curl cream, curl lotion, anti frizz end treatment, and the separate cream for my bangs. AND it doesn't make my hair dirty after a day like all those other products do. When you consider all that, the price is worth it.

                    • Q:

                      what is the difference between this product and the Blow Out? I bought Blow Out and love it. I am looking for something to put on before blowing out to smoothe and detangle.

                        A:

                        The most dramatic difference is the consistency. Blowout is a mist, while PhD is a lightweight cream. Among its many benefits, PhD provides conditioning action (perfect for smoothing and detangling) as well as helps to reduce breakage. PhD is more of a hair treatment product, while Blowout is more of a hair styling product.

                        Using the two together is definitely a great combo! PhD, applied first, helps to eliminate any frizz and to add volume, while Blowout, applied after, helps to speed drying time, to protect hair from damage from heat styling, and to provide a bit of hold for shaping hair. We hope this info helps!

                      I have very long,thick & curly hair. I currently use this product line to straighten my hair because I was told by the ulta sales girl...this is what's best for blowing out coarse & curly hair ? To note... I only like cream stlyer & I love this line! However I just want to know if I am using the best or I should say correct product from your line, designed for straightening coarse hair?

                        PHD works wonderfully to add smoothness, shine, and volume while also providing conditioning and strengthening benefits to the hair of all types and textures. When heat styling, we recommend using PHD in conjunction with one of Living Proof's heat protectant styling products, such as new Blowout, which protects hair from heat damage up to 450 F:
                        http://www.ulta.com/ulta/browse/productDetail.jsp?productId=xlsImpprod12291999

                        The order of application is PHD first, then Blowout. Blowout also provides hold to maintain your finished style!

                    • Q:

                      If I use this product would I still use the Blowout product as well? I have very fine, thin, blond hair. I use a root lifter for styling but often it ends up looking like I didn't do anything as if falls flat or the ends flip up.

                        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.
