Most Helpful Positive Review It didnt give me Jennifer Aniston's hair
...but that would require nothing short of magic.
I am, however, impressed with what it's done for the fine, straight hair that the genetic lottery stuck me with.
Living Proof is the first thickening/volumizing line that has not left me on the fence about whether it actually works or not, and I have tried way more than a few.
I use this cream and/or the PhD cream along with the root lifting spray and I was amazed from the start at how much fuller and thicker my hair looked and felt. My hair doesn't go flat after a few hours like it does with other volume products, and it will hold a style longer, as well. It has kind of an odd smell, but it's totally grown on me.
It's a bit pricey, but a little goes a long way (seriously, if you use too much you'll want to hop right back into the shower and wash your hair) so a bottle will last a lot longer than expected, making it worth the investment. But if you just want to try it out without forking over too much cash, the travel sized products are a good deal.
Most Helpful Critical Review Didn't work for me
I did a lot of research on this product before I bought it. The price was a big commitment for me, I have straight fine hair and absolutely no volume. I was hoping this would make my hair appear thicker and that was not the case. I knew I wouldn't see drastic results but at least something. Nope I felt a texture difference but that was it. I really wanted this product to work for me.

My hair is super duper thin. I received a travel size as a gift with purchase when I bought my favorite PHD shampoo & conditioner. These products go hand in hand! My hair is voluminous & styles with ease when I use this product. A little goes a long way! Doesn't cause oiliness & there is minimum buildup. Highly recommend for those with thin hair😌😍

I have really fine hair. This is one of the few products that gives it volume that lasts all day, without weighing it down or getting greasy. It's my go-to for events where I need to look my best!
Purchased it multiple times
Bunny from Seal Beach, CA
I use it daily after shampoo. Blows dry quickly and with volume.
I buy this again and again
Jorie from Aurora CO
Like how it thickens each strand
I would definitely buy this product again.
Marcy from Henderson,NV
I love it. I used it with the thickening mouse and gave my hair so much texture.
Lgraz from Boston, MA
Only product over the years that helps make my fine hair appear thicker. Usually products are too heavy or don't with. Just a dime size does the trick.
This stuff works
Ashvogt from Wellington, CO
I bought this product because I knew I was having to go back to my straight hair for a time. I have very very fine hair, but I have a ton of it. I have no body in my hair unless it's damaged from a perm or bleaching. I had my stylist use this in my hair when she gave me a blowout after my cut. It definitely made my hair feel and appear more like thicker strands of hair! It's not perfect, don't expect to get mega volume or anything like that. It's not a volumizing product. But it definitely adds lift and a boost to your strands. It's a bit expensive for such a small bottle, but it might just be worth the price, especially if you don't need much or don't use it ever single day. I will definitely be purchasing it again and looking into Living Proof's other products.
Makes my hair look much fuller
Frostyart from Spartanburg, SC
My hair is very thin and fine. This product makes it look much fuller and thicker, but still manageable. I jus put some in my hands, rub them together and run them through my wet or dry hair - usually use on wet hait!
The absolute best!
Missy Mom from Eastern NC
I bought this thinking it couldn't be as good as reviewers said. I couldn't have been more wrong! This works amazingly. It doesn't weigh my fine hair down and the day after using it, my hair still looks as great as it did when I first used it. Gives my hair great body and it looks so good!

It's a must have @"my @home dry-bar"!
Absolutely love all these products
Ale' from Carson City NV
So easy to use. Lasts a really long
Time when you only need a small amount to achieve amazing results!
Jedsgama from Charleston, SC
I am glad I found this product, it really does work! I have thinning hair and it is often very difficult to style without showing areas of thinning. This really does help me to get some sort of satisfactory styling, I am very pleased with this whole line of products!
Expensive, but WONDERFUL
KT from Ga
I bought the travel size kit a few months ago and thought I would need to use all of the products to achieve volume for my thin hair. HOWEVER, using Pantene repair and protect shampoo, John Frieda Volumizing Mousse, and this cream has been perfect for me. I gave it four stars because I wish it was cheaper.
It's a big no for me
Lisa with the limp hair from MO
I bought the sample size since I wasn't sure and I used a dime size and did absolutely nothing. So used a little bit more the next few times and still no results at all. Very disappointing because I don't want it anymore.
axlxed from New York
I used this for the first time and just put a dime amount in and blew dry it. It looked like I had just left the salon! This will definitely last me months! I love the way it makes my hair look and feel.
This cream is not a thickening cream
Elena from Houston, TX
This cream is the anti-volume cream. I used a smaller amount than recommended as I have thin, baby-fine hair and didn't want to add too much project...it didn't work. I used the recommended amount and it also didn't work. This is definitely NOT for volume
I would buy this product again.
Tall gal from Eastern Virginia
I have used the Living Proof Thickening Cream twice. It does make a difference in the texture of my hair. I love the smell. Also, it does only take a dime size to improve texture.
Better than mousse
Victrola from Mississippi
Bought this after a little research into the product. I've got very fine hair and have been using mousse forever. I was tired of how tangled and crunchy mousse made my hair so I took a chance and bought the thickening cream. I do recommend you use as directed except for the roots. I have oily hair so I add mousse to my roots for volume. Other than that I love this and can't wait to try some of their other products.
I have already rebought this product
Barbs from Tucson
The hair thickener is wonderful. The only complaint I have is that each time I have bought the product it has a sign that you get a free shampoo and conditioner with purchase, and every time that I claim it at the Ulta counter, they tell me they are out. I understand that it is while supplies last, but EVERY time it's the same. This to me is false advertising!! Take the sign down!!
This stuff is amazing.
T from Alabama
I live in Alabama. The humidity is terrible. This keeps my hair full and not frizzy all day.
Great for thin hair
Belle from Fort Worth, TX
Use the whole line with shampoo and conditioner. Then thickening cream. My hair has never looked this thick!
Crime writer from Tomball TX
I have baby fines straight hair and I've been using this product for a couple years. Works great for adding volume. I recommend it but a little goes a long way. Use a dime size. Too much and your hair will be greasy.
I am a repeat user, I have fine hair and this does help
Whitey from Henderson,Nv
Helps in styling for less fly away look
Full Thickening Cream
Margaret from Indiana
This products changes the texture of my hair, so much body. One product I can't live without!
Please don't change it!
Great For Fine Hair
MN1991 from Chicago, IL
I love this stuff! I have very fine hair that goes completely flat easily. I apply this before I blow dry and it definitely helps add body to my hair! Be warned, it's not a heat protectant! I have a feeling if I didn't also apply a heat protectant leave in conditioner and only used this that my hair would become dry. But it definitely does as it describes.
