    Comments about Living Proof Perfect Hair Day (PhD) Shampoo:

    So far my hair feels better with every wash. I only wash 2-3 times per week and my hair stays feeling clean until the next wash. Hair has been easy to manage and styles well, even without any other products.

    Comments about Living Proof Perfect Hair Day (PhD) Shampoo:

    I really wanted to love this but the bottom line is that this shampoo dries my hair out AND the conditioner is not conditioning enough. Maybe it is better suited for shorter hairstyles, but if you have long hair, be prepared to do some major detangling. I do like the styling product, but for this price and as a professional hair stylist, I do not like this nor do I suggest it.

          Just didn't like how this shampoo made my hair feel after using. Left it feeling dried out, then super greasy by end of day. I used it for a week before I returned it to the store, along with the paired conditioner.

            I first had this product recommended to me when I got a blow out at a salon. They sent me home with some samples and the first time I used it I was HOOKED. I seriously had the best hair day of my life. And it smells so fantastic. I would highly recommend!

                I wash my hair daily because it's oily and I just can't skip a day. This shampoo is great. It cleans my hair and leaves it shiny and manageable. I pair it with the 5-in-1 conditioner usually, although I often don't use a conditioner.

                        I use this product daily and find it perfect for my thinning fine hair. It seems to give it great volume and shine. I find that when you put the product in your hand and add a little water it lathers much better. I love the smell of it! If you're on the fence about this purchase the sample kit first! This is now my daily shampoo instead of the 25 others under the cabinet!!

                              Safety is Living Proof's top priority, and they use the best and most advanced tools to achieve that. Living Proof does not test their finished products on animals, nor do they ask their suppliers perform animal testing on their behalf.

                            Is this shampoo more of a clarifying shampoo or just a shampoo that cleanses well?. I'm not look for clarifying base with tea tree oil or others like purology or tea tree shampoo. Thank you Deanna

                              This product features a gentle formula that is free of oils, silicones, and sulfates. It is not described as "clarifying", though it does help to eliminate dirt and oil from hair as well as to repel dirt and oil, allowing you to wash your hair less often. We hope this info helps!
