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.

      Comments about Living Proof Amp2 Instant Texture Volumizer:

      first styling product I've found that didn't weigh down my hair or leave it a greasy mess by the end of the day. It only gives light texture but the volume is amazing. The very touchable hold can be re-fluffed throughout the day after the wind "restyles" my do. Just what I needed to add life to my fine straight pixie cut without making it look/feel dirty. Light neutral smell isn't girly or manly. Only down side is the price (the whole line is a bit expensive) but with a pixie, I use such a small amount that the jar will last a long time.

            I bought this product on the recommendation of a friend. When I opened the box it had very specific instructions on how to use it. I did as the instructions have said going on now for two weeks and I have to say this product is horrible. No volume at all......and it stinks. Don't buy it save your money.

                      Not going to lie - I bought this because its Jennifer Anniston's line and I read that this is one of her favorite products. It smells great, and does definitely produce texture and volume, but I'm not entirely sure I'm using it correctly.... I have pretty long, fine, straight hair so I'm not exactly sure what its supposed to do style wise. I like this product, but I need to play with it more to figure out how to best use it.

                          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.
