            My hair takes better to the heat of a flat iron after using this line...was told by ULTA consultant that after trying the product, Jennifer Anniston wanted to be involved with ad campaign, hence her photo in the store. I don't care about her other than she appears to be "real" and as honest as Hollywood allows... Thus her support did influence me a bit ujjto try it! They are a bit pricey, but found you don't need a lot of the products each use! Smell is fresh and subtle......pleasing! I'm a fan!

              I decided to give this shampoo and its accompanying conditioner a try, as both were best sellers everywhere I looked. I can honestly say I've never been so disappointed in a shampoo before. I will say that I tend to have oily roots, and with this I could go a day or two without washing, which is unusual for me. But it went far beyond that. After about two weeks of use this shampoo sucked all the moisture out of my hair. My hair has NEVER been that dry before. And my scalp was so dry it felt tight and itchy. Don't waste your money...

                  Comments about Living Proof Restore Shampoo:

                  I had bought the biggest bottle in March because I thought it was the best deal for the money. I love Jennifer Aniston and I thought anything she uses has got to be great right? Wrong.. My hair felt nice at first and I thought it had alot of body to it, but it really dried my hair out and I could't get a brush through it. I continued to using it hoping that in time my hair would start looking better, but it never did. I finally gave up and tried something new. I read some reviews for Pureology and bought it and I love it. As much as I wanted to really love this shampoo I couldn't. I really gave it a shot for months and this is a honest review. I LOVE Jennifer Aniston and it was probably why I bought this product, but I honestly don't beleive she really uses this she is just getting paid to tell you that. Save your money and time.

                                    Will the shampoo and conditioner make my hair feel softer without feeling heavy and oily? i have tried so many shampoos at Ulta and nothing has worked and i want to know if this works. I straighten my hair about 5 times a week and my hair is thick and breaks easily, it's dry and gets frizzy. Will it help with that?

                                      Living Proof Restore Shampoo is ideal for dry, damaged hair in need of repair and hydration. Since it is free of oil and silicone, it is very lightweight and rinses clean. When used as a complete system, Restore products strengthen hair to become 20x more resistant to breakage.

                                      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.

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.

                                    Does it help fine hair and not weigh down? I use purelogy mostly but thought might try new product.

                                      This shampoo's oil-free and silicone-free formula makes it weightless and suitable for use on all hair textures including fine hair! It is also sulfate-free, which makes it safe to use on color-treated and chemically-treated hair.

                                      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.
