Really helps tame frizz

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

I have wavy hair - but want it straight and this helps me get that look when I blow dry and use flat iron. It doesn't weigh my hair down and leaves it shiny. For my shoulder length bob, I use about a nickel-size dab on damp hair just before blow drying.

            I love this product. It is now one of my "must haves". I have fine hair, but tons of it. This product gives me just the right amount of texture and volume without weighing down my hair. I've receiveded more compliments on my hair in the past few months of using this product than I ever have. This is the good stuff!

                  Too much product and it's a sticky filmy mess on your hair but no enough then it doesn't do much. But once u get the right amount it's great. Smooths hair and makes it shine and easy to style

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

                    I use this product along with the damage repair shampoo and conditioner as well as the repairing cream. I love all of these products, I noticed a huge difference on the first use! I had split ends the little white balls through out the strands and would constantly find myself pulling them apart and breaking them off. I no longer do this because this stuff has worked so well! Only downfalls are that its very expensive and if you use too much of this product it can make your hair feel heavy and filmy- you can tell if you put too much in! If you use it sparingly, about a nickel sized amount (for medium length hair) you will be fine.

                    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.

                            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.
