Traditional shampoos contain harmful sulfates which clean your hair by stripping it. They also contain silicones and oils, which build up on hair, attracting dirt and oil, and weigh it down. PhD Shampoo is powered by our patented Healthy Hair Molecule (OFPMA), which creates a weightless shield around each hair strand that:

  • Delivers the five benefits for a perfect hair day - smoothness, volume, conditioning, strength and polish
  • Promotes stronger, healthier and more manageable hair
  • Repels dirt & oil allowing you to wash your hair less often
  • Improves hair health instantly and gets better over time.


For all hair types. Sulfate-free, silicone-free, oil-free. Safe for color and chemically treated hair.

Apply PhD Shampoo to wet hair. Massage into a rich lather. Rinse. Follow with PhD Conditioner.

            I don't feel like this shampoo and conditioner lived up to the hype. It didn't make my hair feel any different than Pantene. Both the shampoo and conditioner are hard to squeeze out of the bottles.

                          Living Proof's PhD line is made for someone with multiple hair concerns. The PhD Shampoo can be used on any hair type and helps to offer multiple benefits such as smoothness, volume, strength, conditioning, and overall polish! However, if frizz is a major concern, I suggest LP's No Frizz line instead! These products help to eliminate frizz by blocking humidity.

These products offer multiple benefits such as smoothness, strength, conditioning, volume and over all polish! You also have the option to mix and match products as you'd like. For example, PhD shampoo and conditioner paired with one of the No Frizz stylers!
