Options

Traditional products that provide thickness use brittle ingredients that create volume but break down with the slightest touch. Full Thickening Cream is powered by living Proof patented Volumizing Molecule (PBAE) which:

  • Deposits a flexible micropattern of thickening dots on each strand
  • Creates touchable thickness and volume that lasts all day without collapsing or becoming stiff
  • Leaves volume between each strand to help hair feel thicker


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

Apply a pea sized amount of Full Cream to clean, damp hair, starting just beyond the roots to ends. Less is more when using Full Cream so start small and build. Blow dry to activate, using a round brush to create even more volume.
Water/Eau/Aqua, Polyalkylaminoester-1 (PBAE), Fragrance/Parfum, Polyacrylate-13, Xanthan Gum, Polyisobutene, PPG-2 Myristyl Ether Propionate, Oleth-10, Polysorbate 20, Myristyl Alcohol, Phenoxyethanol, Methylisothiazolinone, Linalool, Citronellol, Limonene, Butylphenyl Methylpropional, Citral, Geraniol.

          I wanted so badly to love this product. I have really thin hair and I'm always looking for a product to give my hair some thickness. This product did nothing but make my hair super smooth which was great but not what I bought it for.

            Comments about Living Proof Full Thickening Cream:

            So last year I lost close to 50% of my hair due to telogen effluvium which is caused by extreme stress. I went through a really rough patch last year and I just continued to lose my hair for around 6 months no matter what I did. After controlling my stress levels and dealing with it better, my hair is very slowly growing back. I had totally lost my confidence because everyone would go out of their way to point out that i lost so much hair (I've always had amazing thick, gorgeous hair-haters!!!!). I have been using this product for a little over a month and i dont think i can live without it now!! i use on wet/damp hair from my roots down and it gives me volume but more importantly thickness. I feel a lot more confident because i have some of my old thickness back. LOVE the smell, texture is fine and you dont need a lot!

              I have used this for some time. It is a splurge hair product for me. I have very fine, thin , grey hair and when I comb this through my hair after shampooing, it has more body and appears thicker.

                    A:

                    The cream texture of this product may make it a bit difficult to use as a root lifter, though it does add volume and body to hair for the appearance of full, thick hair. Instead (or in conjunction), you may prefer to use Full Root Lifting Hairspray, which can be sprayed directly at the roots of your hair for ultimate lift:

                    A:

                    Since you have fine hair, if you are seeking to create volume and fullness, we definitely recommend using Full Thickening Cream! Similar to PHD, Full Thickening Cream features a lightweight formula that is free of silicones and oils, so it is ideal for fine, thin hair. You can even mix the two products together (called "cocktailing") to reap the benefits of both products. All Living Proof products are completely safe to use on color-treated hair.

                  I've been using the Perfect Hair Day 5-in-1 treatment for about a year and really like it. What I want is more thickening/volume in my hair. I'm unclear whether I would use this Full Thickening Cream WITH the Perfect Hair Day treatment or IN PLACE OF it. Which will do more for my hair?
