Most Helpful Positive Review Living proof de-frizzer
Works very well with the very dry ends of my hair. You need only a small amount--about the size of a pea--it costs nearly $20, but lasts a very long time. It says to use on wet hair, which works well. Sometimes I use it on the top of my head where my hair gets especially frizzy and dry--I wet my hands and rub on the top layer of hair. Then I wet my hands again and add a small amount of conditioner and rub my hands together to make the conditioner thinner so that it spreads better. I rub this on the damp hair, at it brings it back to life. Sometimes when hairspray gunks up my bangs, I wash just my bangs, then use a tiny amount of conditioner. It works like a charm. I am reviewing this product as part of contest.
Most Helpful Critical Review The effect wont last more than 4 hours.
I went to the @livingproofinc aisle to a quick #DefrizzAtUlta and tamed my hair with a nice and fresh scent, that not only lasted through my flight but also got the work done for a few hours.
What I liked the most about this product is that it felt weightless on my hair and had a fresh and almost unnoticeable scent. This product is super easy to use, just spray it wherever you need it and you're done.
The packaging, the price are nice; boring but nice. My hair looked super tamed and a bit dull after one use and felt surprisingly soft.
To be honest, I would like a Dry Shampoo version of the Living Proof Instant De-frizzer, for an even better result on girls that doesn't have time at all or have greasy hair, because the long term result is a bit messy... What I didn't liked about it is that it made my hair look greasy a few hours after I applied the product.
Pro tip: it worked better, with a longwearing result when I applied baby powder to the roots of my hair before applying the Instant De-Frizzer. You can use makeup setting powder as well.
Although this is my honest review, I must confess that I'm taking part on a contest.
Reviewed by 647 customers Good product for frizzy hair!
Olivia from Dallas, TX
Since I have wavy hair, my hair frizzes a lot. First use, I could see some difference. Second day use, I saw better results.
Frizzled As Ever
Kgatita from Houston Texas
This products produces zero results for my air dryed natural hair. My hair appears frizzier with use.
Compared to other products I've tried for frizziness, this ranks lowest.
Run the fan!
Krissie from San Francisco
I love this spray for a quick smooth-down. It smells very nice and it really does tame my frizz, even if it doesn't quite last all day, which is why I have to knock off a star. I do have to strongly suggest holding your breath and running the fan in your bathroom, because this stuff lingers in the air like crazy. I'm not sure if that's a health concern, but my room is literally hazy after I spray it if I don't open a window or run the bathroom fan
GV from Chicago
only downside is that it's not good for curly hair because of the alcohol and and whatever reason their products smell like playdough; every single one I've tried and it's unbearable.
Jessica from California
My curly hair always gets frizzy no matter what I try. After using this product, my hair is much more manageable and there is a huge difference in the amount of frizz I have. This by no means gets rid of all of the frizz, but significantly reduces it. Although the smell is fairly strong, it does not smell any different than any other hair spray. The smell does not really linger as well. Definitely recommend this product.
P.S. I forgot to add
sundiego from California
I forgot to add this in my previous review. Wow! it is true! the smell is crazy strong! However I am not going to complain as this spray is an ABSOLUTE game changer for me! I will always purchase this as I do not want to be without this...EVER! Just make sure to hold your breath when you spray your hair and then immediately walk out of the room. No exaggeration here. With that said the instant defrizzer really works!
Sundiego from California
What?! I can't believe people are saying that this doesn't work. This stuff is AMAZING! I have naturally curly hair, 3c curls. it's all natural. No relaxer. Before Living Proof, when I flat ironed my hair it didn't take much for my hair to begin frizzing. I uses all sorts of products to try to get a healthy look. My hair just looked heavy and greasy and I STILL had frizz, just not as much. THANK GOD an employee introduced me to Living Proof! I no longer get dry brittle hair due to flat ironing any I am about 99 percent frizz free! I actually do get INSTANT DE FRIZZ WITH THIS PRODUCT! I never tried anything like this before! It's a must whenever I have my hair flat ironed! After I wash and condition my hair (using a different brand) I use the Living Proof Nourshing Styling Cream to hydrate. Then before I go in with the flat iron I put the Living Proof Blowout Concentrate. Talking about silky hair! My gosh! It's remarkable! Then right before I walk out the door I spray Instant De frizz and brush thru my hair. I am 98 to 99 percent frizz free all day! Just spray in a sweeping motion from roots to ends. (downward). I don't know if my flat iron helps with the frizz as well but I'm using Lange 360 (the one with the built in fan). With these hair products and this flat iron my hair shows no signs of heat damage.
btchboyer from Va
I do not understand all the rave reviews. This did nothing for my hair, didn't remove a bit of frizz.
Waste of $
Kat from Jacksonville
It absolutely did nothing to help my frizz. Waste
Of time and $. I also purchased the styling spray. Useless products
Leenda from St. Louis , MO
Save your money. This product doesn't work. Used in humidity conditions and did nothing for frizz. Waste of money and would not recommend.
I swear by this product!!
Heather from Lee's summit
I got the small bottle to try out since I like Living Proof products, I can almost never find a product to tame how frizzy my hair can get, especially in humidity, after using the product ONCE my hair looks 10x smoother, and more tamed, and barely ANY frizz. And feels amazing! Not like there's any product in at all! I'll definitely be buying the larger bottle now!!!
Overwhelming smell & the spray is foggy and lingers
Joelle from San Diego, CA
I just moved to Southern California and noticed how frizzy my hair gets here. Was so excited to purchase this product today but will be returning it tomorrow for sure!
It has an overwhelmingly strong smell that stays on your hair all day. It smells like a mans deodorant and like chemicals covered up in cologne. Even my husband commented and said that it smelled like a guys deodorant without me saying a word to him.
The spray is like a fine mist and creates a fog all around your head (wherever you spray). It just hangs in the air and smothers you. I got a headache within a few minutes of having this product on my hair. I had to open up all the windows and the smell still stuck around for a long time. About 8 or so minutes in, I started sneezing and my headache got worse. I had to go wash it off my hair so I could feel some relief.
It did help with some frizz. It has no sticky or oily feeling on my hair or hands after running it through my hair. It also did not leave my hair feeling stiff or heavy.
I would NOT recommend this to anyone who is sensitive to strong chemical/perfume smells or anyone who has even the slightest respiratory issues.
OMG the smell! And don't breathe in the white fog!
sarcazm from Lewisville, TX
This reminded me of one of the older brands of dry shampoo spray than anything else. It did nothing for my hair besides leave it feeling greasy and dull and stinking like something sweet had rotted. Even with the greasiness and the waxy feeling it added no shine and made it look matte as opposed to shiny, which ruined my waves and made them look like I had used hairspray after going the beach and drove home with the top down in someone's convertible at 70mph. Returning this one.
Helps with flyaways
Asher from Carson city
light weight hydration on the hair that's feels smooth. helps with my flyaways and doesn't leave it greasy or chalky looking. smell is a little heavier than I would prefer.
Great for curly hair air drying sucks for everything else!
Anne from Chester Virginia
Air drying curly hair this stuff is amazing however using a hair dryer I looked like I stuck my finger in the socket! Sucks!
NATALIA from Arizona
I REALLY LIKED THIS SPRAY, IT REALLY WORKED FOR ME. I JUST LET MY HAIR DRY AND IT BECAME FRIZZY, THEN I PUT THE SPRAY ON AND BRUSHED IT AND IT REALLY MADE A DIFFERENCE.
The worst smelling product ever!
Debbi from Norman, Oklahoma
This product smell terrible! It works pretty good, but, WOW, it smells like bug spray. I could smell it all day, couldn't wait to wash out the smell.
I keep returning
SOWE from Southwestern US. Desert climate
This product is something I keep coming back to. It's consistently worked for me over the years. Bc it's a spray, it tends to give me better volume rather than creams. The price is the only downside.
Morgan from Ocean springs, Mississippi
Had high hopes for this, I have very curly thick frizzy hair and had high hopes for this but was also suspicious because it sounded too good to be true and well, it is. It does nothing for my hair that I can tell and chokes me every time I've tried it, I always have to move away from the area I sprayed it to breath again!
more hype than help
S.C. Empress from Greenville, SC
I was excited to try this as I have thick wavy hair that I straighten daily. it becomes almost instantly frizzy. this did absolutely nothing except cover my bathroom in a thick white cloud which is hard to breath in when sprayed. the scent is definitely a killer of your favorite sc shampoo and conditioner scents. Smells like something from the auto parts store. Definitely was not impressed with this and it gets more hype than it's actually worth. pick something else to control your frizz, you won't regret it
LOVE LOVE LOVE
Jj from Pittsburgh
I bought the travel size first then went back and bought the regular size. I think this product is amazing and it really tames my hair after I blow dry it. It has a nice finish and I like the smell of it sooo I'm not sure why people are saying it smells bad. I guess everyone has different opinions but to me it's a hair product not perfume. I'm addicted to this stuff. I'm on my second can. It's on the pricey side but we'll worth it IMO.
Leah from Virginia
I love the smell, but be careful not to put too much on. A little goes a long way. Gets rid of my annoying fly-aways
JJL006 from Az
I have thick and long hair. It is dry, frizzy and just meh. This stuff does smell great but it's not for me. I think I got it when it was on sale for half off....that was last year and I still have it. That should say something...
Not for me
Jess from Texas
I really wanted this to work for my baby hairs and frizz. If I straighten my hair it does 0 help. When I curl my hair it does tame frizz.

Melody from Saint Petersburg, FL
I LOVE this product! I have oily frizzy hair and every product I used in the pass made my my hair oily. This product keeps my hair at bay and not have my hair oily. I strongly recommend this product!
