    made my head a greasy mess!

    Comments about Living Proof Restore Shampoo:

    I have very thick hair that normally can go 2-3 days without washing. I bought a travel size of this product to try it out as I have run out of my usual shampoo, Marula Oil by Paul Mitchell. It takes A LOT to make my hair greasy in one day. I used this and as soon as my hair was dry, it was greasy. Tried a second time to eliminate any errors I may have made the first time of usage, hair was still greasy afterwards. Very disappointing. Didn't do much for my hair anyway.

      Comments about Living Proof Restore Shampoo:

      I have tried a lot of products for my hair which is damaged from years of flat ironing and highlighting. I was hopeful, but realistic when trying this product and it has exceeded my hopes! For my shoulder length hair, I did not need more than a good squirt of product and at first my hair was tangly and dead strands where shedding (which happens overtime I wash my hair), then I used the Restore Conditioner and it made my hair feel smooth and silky and protected or sealed. The real test was styling. I only had the Prime by Living Proof and not the products I want like the No Frizz Weightless, so I just used the one product on my damp hair. It blew dry so quickly and shiny and soft and I only used the flat iron for some slight styling at the top! I usually have to blow dry and THEN flat iron the whole thing taking 30-45 to style hair! Then it still would frizz and look damaged and fried. My hair looks amazing, the color seems refreshed and I can't wait to get the weightless and the texture mist to add to the styling (maybe the restore protection spray too) LOVE!!!!!!

                Comments about Living Proof Restore Shampoo:

                This shampoo cures dryness and damage like magic! It makes my color treated, dry, wavy, frizz prone hair soft, smooth and frizz free. It adds intensive hydration for those with severely fried locks. It is perfect for those who have experienced breakage because it repairs and restructurizes. After using this shampoo (and the conditioner) for two weeks, my hair was cured of all the abuse I'd given it. It was sleek and shiny, with no dryness in sight. However, I think it's best if I use this formula periodically because it's quite moisturizing and it's a bit too much for me on a regular basis. For regular use, I prefer the Perfect Hair Day formula. But whenever my hair feels exceptionally dry or if I've been overdoing it with the curling iron, I will use Restore. I definitely recommend this formula for really dry, damaged hair. You will be amazed at the results!!

                    Was very hopeful this would improve my hair's health but actually made it so much worse. It dried my hair out, made the ends straw-like. I tried to give it as much time as I could. Finally gve up and went back to Pantene. My hair improved within a week.

                          My hair was quite dry and with the humidity in FL, it looked awful even though I used moisturizing products and conditioners. My hairstylist recommended that I try the Living Proof products. I did some reading online and found that Ulta carried this line of products. I purchased the Restore Shampoo and just like magic after one use my hair was feeling a whole lot better. I don't use it every time I wash my hair. I alternate with the Full Shampoo and Full Conditioner. I really like this product. I has worked for me. I have recommended this product to several friends.

                              Yes! Because this shampoo is formulated without any heavy oils or silicones (like all Living Proof products), it provides weightless cleansing with no build-up. Restore Shampoo helps to strengthen hair against breakage and to add moisture and softness to dry and/or damaged hair.

                            My hair is both fine and curly, not cork screw curly, but curly. It tends to be drier due to the curly texture and I do highlight and lowlight the crown area. Is Restore my best option? When I go to places like Mexico my hair frizzes. Would I then use the No Frizz products? Thank you for your help.

                              For curly hair, we recommend Living Proof Curl collection. Like all Living Proof products, Curl products are safe for color-treated hair. Curl Conditioning Wash, Curl Detangling Rinse, and Curl Defining Crème help to eliminate frizz and to shape and define curls. They are available in easy-to-try travel sizes here:

                              For color-treated hair, we typically recommend the Restore line, especially if you are experiencing dryness and breakage, though all Living Proof products are safe to use on color-treated or chemically-treated hair. All Living Proof products are also sulfate-free, silicone-free, and oil-free, so they will not cause any added oiliness or weigh down your hair. Since LP's formulas are so gentle, they typically do not cause any issues with scalp irritation, though if you have a diagnosed scalp condition, we always recommend to first consult your physician.

                            I have straight, thick hair with both bleach-blonde highlights and dark low-lights. The highlighting, heat styling, and bitter winter winds in this area make my hair prone to damage. I've recently started using the "full" shampoo by Living Proof. I am wondering if the "restore" line would be better for preventing damage and keeping my locks healthy. I love how the full shampoo leaves my hair feeling weightless. But, would the restore shampoo and/or conditioner weigh my hair down? Could I use a combo of both, maybe the full shampoo and restore conditioner? Thanks so much!

                              All Living Proof products including this one are formulated without silicones and oils, so you'll get that same weightless feeling using Restore Shampoo! Depending on your primary concern (repairing and preventing damage vs. adding body and volume), we'd recommend either Restore or Full for you, and yes, all Living Proof products are designed to be mixed and matched, so you can certainly continue to use Full Shampoo and introduce Restore Conditioner into your regimen. Another great option is to use Restore Mask Treatment as a weekly (or as needed) intensive treatment to deeply condition and strengthen your hair against breakage:

                              All Living Proof products are safe to use on color-treated hair. For damaged hair in need of repair, we suggest using Restore Shampoo, which strengthens hair to become 20x more resistant to breakage. With regular use in conjunction with other Restore products, the condition of your hair should be restored to healthy, undamaged hair. Once damage has been repaired, we suggest switching to Full Shampoo (Item #: 2233460) to boost the volume of your fine hair for maximum fullness.

                              Yes, it is. All Living Proof products are gluten-free except five of their shampoos and conditioners: No Frizz Shampoo & Conditioner, Full Shampoo & Conditioner, and Restore Conditioner. These contain a wheat protein for conditioning, which is a common source for gluten.
