Amp2 Instant Texture Volumizer

Item #: 2252420

Ask a Question
To style hair with volume and texture, it takes significant time, energy, and skill, and the results often fall flat. Why? The stiff resins used in most volumizing and texturizing products can easily break, so volume and texture don't stand a chance against everyday forces like wind, humidity, and even touch. Plus, their heavy ingredients weigh hair down and attract dirt, so hair needs to be washed, styled, and restyled often - which is both damaging and time consuming.

Amp2 is powered by Living Proof's Meta-Volume Technology, a revolutionary complex of polymers and their patented Volumizing Molecule (PBAE) which:
  • Deposits microscopic thickening dots between each hair strand for touchable volume
  • Instantly provides touchable volume, moldable texture and flexible hold on dry hair
  • Makes style flexible and remoldable, so hair is never stiff or frozen and remains touchable and revivable for up to 48 hours

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

(2.0 oz.)
Rub a small dab of Amp evenly between hands until the product is transparent. Apply to clean, dry hair starting in the underneath sections of hair. Lift and muss hair as you work it in to desired style. Avoid direct application to scalp or applying in a downward motion.

      I took this back to the store for a refund. I have a cupboard full of worthless thickening products. From now on, if it doesn't work as described, I'm taking it back. Is there a product out there that will thicken my fine, limp hair?

      Comments about Living Proof Amp2 Instant Texture Volumizer:

      I have very fine hair, and this products works good on the first day, however the 2nd day hair was flat and greasy, so you may want to use less on the first day to keep from washing on the 2nd day.

          I use it after my hair is blow out. Make sure that it's absorbed into the palm of your hands (after it's totally invisible to you) before you apply it to your hair.

                  I don't have very much body in my hair so it always feels rather limp to me. But putting this on after blowing my hair dry, I get the lift I want and I love it.

                      You can absolutely use a mousse as well for even more volume. Both the Full Thickening Mousse and the Timeless Plumping Mousse will give you a beautiful, voluminous look, when used with Amp2 Instant Texture Volumizer. Enjoy!

                  • Q:

                    Can this be used in long hair that has been curled with a curling iron? Currently I use the iron then tousle the curls with a dry texture spray. I'm looking to replace the spray with another product that creates fullness and lift like dry texture spray. Thanks!

                      Yes, take a small amount and warm up in your hands, and then rake through ends to provide texture and definition.

                    is this product for curly hair? I think if I wait for my hair to dry it will frizz after I use it. Is there a product in the line designed for curly hair?

                      A:

                      Yes, absolutely these two products can be used together! For best results, apply Perfect Hair Day (PhD) 5-in-1 Styling Treatment to damp hair from roots to ends, then blow dry or let hair air dry. Once hair is dry, rub a pea-sized amount of Amp2 between hands until translucent and muss through hair for volume and texture. Apply to ends for definition. We cannot stress enough that a little goes a long way when it comes to Amp2! :-)

                  • Q:

                    I have seen this product amp2 Instant Texture Volumizer advertised as cone-free. In reviewing the ingredients, I noticed it has polymers. Polymers are silicones. How can they say it is cone-free?

                    Kindly respond.

                      A:

                      Amp2 is silicone free.

                      Silicones are a class of materials that use siloxanes as the backbone. You are correct in assuming most (but not all) silicones are polymers. Now a polymer is a material that has repeating units of similar ‘blocks’ of materials. Dimethicone is the most commonly used silicone in hair care and is also a polymer – chemically know as polydimethylsiloxane. This is a heavy material that tends to weigh hair down and make hair feel prematurely dirty. That said, not all polymers are silicones. Amp2 uses carefully chosen styling polymers that don’t have the same properties as silicones.
