  • Promotes stronger, healthier and more manageable hair
  • Improves hair health instantly and gets better over time


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

After using PhD Shampoo, apply PhD Conditioner to clean, wet hair. Spread evenly throughout hair. Rinse. Style with PhD 5-in-1 Styling Treatment.

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

        I just finally tried the PHD conditioner and shampoo together after buying the travel sizes (due to concerns over the cost of the full size). I loved the two in combination - my hair dried quickly, was less frizzy, and generally looked and felt great. HOWEVER, the conditioner smelled terrible! I don't know if I got a bad batch or what. It smelled like an industrial cleaning product. It also doesn't rinse out as soft as some other conditioners (I usually use Redken and my hair usually feels softer after rinsing out their products) but it felt fine once dried (air dry or blow dry).
        If you're interested in trying Living Proof or the PHD line, definitely check out the travel kit (with the PHD 5-in-1 styling product) in stores for a great price. I may try to find another small, travel size conditioner to see if they all smell as bad as the one I bought.

                I love the smell of this stuff for sure! It doesn't take much to clean your hair too. The only real downside is probably just the cost. It is a little too expensive but not horrible.

                      • Q:

                        I currently use the PhD shampoo and love it. My hair is very oily at the scalp and this helps keep my hair clean longer. I've been growing my hair longer and now the ends are becoming very dry and dull. Should I use the PhD conditioner also or the Restore conditioner?

                          We'd recommend using the PhD Conditioner in conjunction with the PhD Shampoo that you already use. They're meant to work together to keep the hair smooth, hydrated and cleaner longer. Also try PhD Fresh Cut (Item #: 2301744) to keep your ends smooth in-between trims!

                        I have very fine hair that is thinning a bit and an oily scalp. My ends tend to get dry and break easily because my hair is so fine. Would this be a good product for me?

                          We recommend Timeless Conditioner instead of PhD, this will be more fortifying and has amino acids to help strengthen your hair and will not weigh the hair down.

                        Hi, I have coarse, curly, frizzy hair. I get it colored for grey every 4 weeks and Japanese straightening every 6 months. It's 85 percent grey. Right now it's feeling and looking brittle and dull. It breaks easily. While I like joico shampoo and conditioner I need more intensive repair. What shampoo and conditioner, etc. do you recommend ? It seems like I have no oil or lustre. Thanks so much l! Btw ! I am from India (so you'll understand my hair type).

                        I have fine curly hair and struggle with frizzy, dry ends and undefined curls. Is this the best living proof product, or is there a better living proof shampoo and conditioner to use? I'm looking for softer and more defined curls Rather than a product that will straighten.
