Most Helpful Positive Review Love it, but . . .
I DID NOT like this the first 2 times I used it. It made my hair feel gummy and heavy. But I had read great reviews, so I was willing to try it again. Turns out, the gross, gunky way it made my hair feel was totally user error. I have short hair, so I need to use less than a dime-sized amount. When you dip the cream out of the container, rub it between your hands until it is completely clear. Then (and this is where I went wrong), rub it through your hair from roots to ends, and KEEP rubbing until you can't feel any product. Once you think you're done spreading it through your hair, do it a few more times. If you use the product correctly (and use the right amount for your hair length), you shouldn't feel like you have anything in your hair, but it will give amazing volume, hold, and texture.
Most Helpful Critical Review It is okay....
I love Living Proof overall. I use the full thickening cream everyday. I also like night cap. The full conditioner works great with my hair because I have very fine hair--it doesn't weigh it down at all. I bought amp after reading about it on-line. I thought it would be the perfect product for my hair. The first time I used it, my hair looked great when I left home, but by the time I got to work it was very flat and weighed down. I tried it again yesterday with less product -- worked better and I used more hair spay with it. I will use it, but not a lot. I need to find the right amount to use. The texurizng spray works better for my hair because it doesn't weigh it down I think I need to use a very very small amount and it just creates some waves. I do not think this is a good product for fine hair.....I would imagine that amp would work best on people with thick hair. It smells great, but I will not buy it again.

This product is light but works great
Tried the rest, this one's the best.
WildColorHair from ATL area
I have very, very fine hair. My Ulta stylist cut it into an asymmetrical pixie that is slightly long on top. Amp2 keeps the cut looking fresh and adds nicely textured volume without weighing the hair down or making it look like it's been glued in place. The product is actually good for a couple of days without any new application. I have tried a few other brands, and this one works the best for me.
Lissa from New Jersey
Love LP products in general, and this worked great to volumize my fine, thin hair. Didn't weigh it down, not greasy or waxy and it smells nice.
Wow. Really helps with Volume
Red from Greenville, SC
I was looking for something that would provide volume to my fine hair that has no body. This works great and is not sticky or waxy like some of the others. I find that I don't need to wash my hair every day with the Living Proof products and this is a great way to puff up the hair on the non-wash days.
Love this product!
N.B. from WI
Rub product into palms and rub until clear and apply, great for 2nd day hair too!
You have to use it correctly
Kaylee from San Antonio, TX
I think the bad reviews are due to people not using it correctly... Unless you've tried and tried and just can't get it to work, ok then it may not be for you lol BUT, I tried it the first time, following the directions, making sure I rubbed the product between my hands until the product was completely clear, rubbing the hair from ends to roots so most of it goes onto the shaft thus preventing oily roots... and the first few time my hair didn't look good: oily, dirty, and limp. Total opposite of what you're supposed to get right?
What I came to notice after a couple of times trying it out is you need a TINY amount. You may be using way too much. Even a dime size can be too much. Of course, this depends on hair type, hair length, hair porosity, etc. So try and find YOUR tiny amount.
I have normal-ish, kinda fine hair, long, natural wave, limp.
I seriously only need a DAB on my middle finger. That's it. I literally just dab with my middle finger and that amount spreads just enough and works wonders! My hair looks fuller, volumized, slightly textured and lived-in but in the most beautiful way. It's like a dry, texture spray but at the control of your fingertips (literally), to place and put exactly where you want and need it.
Try it out! You might just fall in love too.
I probably will buy this product again.

Didn't like its performance
not thst great
denise from san ramon, ca
I have shoulder length layered thin hair. I followed the directions to a T as well as others who reviewed the product , and it did nothing at all except make my hair look dry at the ends. I used it 3 times and will be returning it. First time I used it alone, second time I used it with their thickening creme, then last time alone again. Maybe short choppy hair would be different.
Living proof winner!
Bonbea from Pa.
Great hair texturizer, some of older gals have personal summers, does not melt when body temperature heats up!
ataylor26 from CA
It smooths my hair prevents frizz from humidity and gives me volume. Can't be without this product.
CK from Tucson
I have short, thin, grey hair. By thin I mean I can see my pink scalp. Short, I mean, old lady short, cut around ears etc. I have tried other styling products, most are gel like, gross. This is creamy. I use a very small amount, maybe pea size, and do as it says, get it onto finger tips and put under the hair at the scalp. It works. I can tell when I get too much because it will feel sticky. I just comb thru the area, puff it back up and go.
You can make texture with it. I use it to lift the top, tame the "side burns" and bangs. Ordering more right now with my 20% coupon.
must use it the right way
KrisFashion from Midwest
You must read and follow the package directions for this product to work. Rub a small, pea size, amount with tops of fingers, flip head forward and rub into roots around crown of head. Flip back, arrange hair with fingers. Use hairspray. I also prep wet hair with Got to be fat-tastic mousse, apply only to roots at crown of head.
AMP2 Living Proof NOT a volumizer for fine hair
Anna from new york
Amp2 claims it is an instant volumizer for fine hair. I used a pea size amount of product on fine chin length dry hair. My hair felt heavy and looked dirty. Product helped control flyaways but did not volumize at all. I have used the Full line shampoo and mousse with good results. Expected more from these pricey styling products. Really do not believe company tests these products on actual fine hair. Please re-evaluate your claims Living Proof!
KWF from Austin, TX
I used about a dime size amount rubbed it in my hands and put what I could in my hair. Actually, your hands get SO tacky you cannot run this through your hair, you have to dab it in. At first I thought it did nothing to my hair but now one hour later, my hair is limp, feels heavy, and looks like I haven't washed it in a few days. What a waste of money. I don't understand who these products are tested on.
The greatest volumizer on the market!
JoJo from North Carolina
Have have been trying many products to get the lift and volumizer I've always wanted, and believe me I am 62 yrs old I have tried many brands. This is hands down the best. My hair has volume and control for more than two days by using this product! Love, love, love it!

Cheryl from Centreville,Md.
I love it. It really does make your hair fuller, and the next day you can tell it is still doing what it's suppose to do and the ends of my hair feel really good not dry and unmanagable.
Love this product!

Returned, didn't work out for me
KatfromOK from Tulsa, OK
I have fine, straight hair in a pixie cut. I bought this hoping it would help to give my cut a little texture, volume & definition. Unfortunately, it did none of those things. Seemed to make it a little greasy and flat. I followed the instructions to a T. Returned to store.
Pretty good stuff
Toots from Folsom ca
I use this product every time I wash my hair. It really gives my hair volume and lets me style it the way I like it. Just try not to use to much.
J from Minneapolis
I use this product daily. The product works great most of the time.
