Most Helpful Positive Review Yes
Love the smell. Works great. I have wavy to curly thick long hair. My hair air-dries beautifully.
Most Helpful Critical Review Didn't do anything
I always let my hair air dry except on very seldom, special occasions, so I have a basis of what it generally looks like. Used this a few times (bought the travel size because I had my doubts), and it didn't really do anything at all. Just an added step in the shower for the same results I had without using it. Still had to follow this with a leave-in conditioner, which was disappointing, and also the PHD 5 in 1 from Living Proof. I can't recommend this as I'm really not sure what it does - if anything at all. Maybe for people who always blow dry their hair and once and a while don't want to? Nah, not even for them - there are much cheaper products that do the same thing (and don't test on animals).

The first time I used this product I received numerous compliments in one day! It's light weight hair product.
Great for beachy waves
Fran from Little Rock
I rinsed too much but still enough to scrunch my hair into beachy waves and so soft. I'm trying not to use any heat on my hair as I'm getting ready to bleach. My hair was crunchy as it air dried reminiscent of scrunch sprays. So full and wavy when I brushed it after it dried.
Beachy/Wavy with No Effort
Bex from Humid South
I have beachy/wavy hair when air dried naturally, but it has a tendency to dry frizzy and poufy. I finger comb in shower after washing and apply about a nickel size dollop to my shoulder length hair. Leave it in for a few minutes, then very lightly rinse mainly from the root area. Squeeze/scrunch out excess water and towel dry for 5 mins then scrunch away but not overworking the hair. I would use this product every day, it doesn't leave a build up in my hair or scalp and my hair appreciates the break from heat and styling.
Not worth money
Mjennings from Ocala, FL
It's no different then putting mousse in wet hair and letting it air dry. No extra curls and just leaves hair looking wet and crunchy
what sorcery is this?
jvshaw from Boston, MA
I have been struggling with my hair lately. I've been trying to stay away from heat styling and prefer a more natural effortless hair look. I don't mind a little frizz but with the high humidity this summer, and having a lot of hair but very fine with ZERO texture I've not had any luck with it air drying and it not looking limp, and flat with the texture of actual cotton candy. Any one else have this problem? I just tried this product following the directions exactly and can't believe how good my hair looks! I was able to get frizz free, shiny full and thick hair with A LOT of soft waves and curls with just this product, air drying and a few scrunching moves. I can't believe how much ticker my hair feels.If you have straight fine/limp hair I would definitely give this a try.
"Lightly Rinse" is the key
Sbon74 from Oklahoma
This is my go-to, lazy hair day product. I have naturally "bendy" hair...meaning enough wave to not be able to air dry without it looking like bed head. The biggest key is "lightly rinsing" the hair. I don't stick my head under the showerhead after applying this product. I put a tiny bit of water in my hands and splash it on in sections. I also don't comb my hair before or after applying it. I scrunch while towel drying and then wrap my hair in a dowl while getting ready. When I dry, I use diffuser the entire time. If I have time, it does best on cool, but I don't always have time for that. I have fine hair, but a ton of it and it takes forever for it to dry, so this is my go-to quick solution because I don't have to dry it completely. If I straighten my hair, it has to be completely dry or the "bends" show up.
Perfect as a leave in
JJ from OP
I have frizzy 2a-2c hair and this product really helps with air drying. If your hair is at all dry, this product is best as a leave in though. Lightly rinsing it out does something, but I can't tell that much of a difference unless I leave it in.
Finally found the best product for wavy hair!
Kelly from Denver, CO
For years I've been searching for the perfect product to enchance my natural waves without making them crunchy. This product is the holy grail! Soft waves, not stiffness and so easy to use.
perfect for naturally curly hair!!
LynnP from Fort Lauderdale
I do not use this as a suggested. I use this to refresh my curls daily in the shower. Start by dampening my hair with water and wide tooth comb. Follow with a dab of this product (maybe a teaspoon) and apply on surface of hair and then run through with wide tooth comb. Do not rinse. Do not need/use towel dry... just air dry. Beautiful, soft defined curls everyday-- not like the crunchy look curls like using gel. Hair does dry looking wet crunchy but soft and defined. I only wash my hair twice a week and use this daily in between washes. No product build-up, can use everyday. Can't get any easier than this for beautiful no frizz curls. Oh, and my husband noticed that it leaves a lovely fragrance in my hair!
(Can shape intensity of curl by choice of comb or brush.) Love love love this product!
GraceEC from Portland, OR
Honestly, I couldn't tell the difference between when I used the in-shower styler versus when I didn't. It left my hair feeling soft (which is way better than some of the beach hair sprays) and smelled good but there wasn't much of a texturized style to it. I tried different ways of lightly rinsing it like other reviewers had said but nothing. For the price, I was disappointed in this product and ended up returning it.
Wash and Go
Mcknzbrooke from Camden, NY
I am not a morning person. I love that I can use this in the shower, then scrunch a little on my way to work, and have beautiful waves.
RoxyV from Chicago
I have used countless products to tame my frizzy curly hair and nothing has worked like this! I usually have to pair other products like some oils or cream after showering to even attempt to get nice bouncy frizzless curls but when trying a new product I always test it by not using anything else. And this product gave me my curls at its best! For results I used this after my conditioner and let it stay in my hair for about 5 minutes or so, then I wash it out..but not completely from my ends.
Works great once you get the hang of it.
Stacy from Boston,MA
I found this product works best for me when I use A nickel size amount and dilute with water then apply it to my hair concentrating on ends upward. I do not rise it out. This way works great for me. I find applying liberally then rinsing it out a waste of product. I have medium length wavy hair that isn't fine or thick.
Incredible for lazy curly hair
Amber from Phoenix
This is my favorite product for my natural curly hair! It's the only thing I'll use now to embrace my natural curls
Did nothing for me
Lauren from NJ
Maybe I wasn't using this right but this really made no difference to my hair. I like other Living Proof products but the only good thing about this one is the smell. I just use it now as in-shower hair perfume so my hair smells good when I get out LOL
Love this stuff! It truly makes for a perfect hair day!❤️
Fayzer from St Augustine, FL
Smooth it through wet hair while still in the shower, voila, no more frizz!
This is my second repurchase
Ximena M. from New York
I use this after shampooing my hair. It lessens the amount of product that I use and it has a great scent.
I buy this product over and over.
Langli from Iowa
I love this product! It makes great curls and is so easy to use.
This is my HG hair styler!!
taylo.tonic from Seattle
I am seriously in love with this product!! It's my HG. I have long, fine, wavy/curly hair. The PhD in shower styler literally gives me a perfect hair day EVERY time. I can choose waves or curls based on how much I scrunch my hair as it dries, and it minimizes frizz too! I'm a fan for life.
LOVE this product !
AshleyN from California
I have very flat hair at my roots , but it frizzes and gets wavy/curly at the end . This product smoothes my hair and gives it some texture . When I use my flat iron, it doesn't feel as dead too.
Sonia from Atlanta
I can't stop using this, heaven sent for my hair. It does take some getting used to as far as how much to use and how much to rinse out, but once I figured it out it makes my hair styling a breeze. I'm super low maintenance and don't like heat styling my hair. I just wash it and put this in, scrunch it, and it leaves it so healthy and shiny. I love this stuff.
Jess from Texas
I have super thin hair that's always straggly and somewhat wavy if I let it air dry. But with this, I was able to achieve more defined waves and volume. Once I'm done shampooing and conditioning (I also use it on days I don't wash), I put a generous amount in my hair. I use my wet brush to make sure it's evenly. The tricky part is "lightly rinsing" it. What I usually do is take some water in my hand or just put my head back in the running water very quickly and work the water out. I'll do that about 2 or 3 times where I can still feel the product in my hair. Put my hair in a towel to get some of the extra water off and I will use my hands to scrunch it. While it's air drying, I will continue to scrunch it every once in a while to help with my waves!
Practice makes perfect
doll 123 from Ma
I really like this. I think it would be great in the summer, if you don't want to blow dry. I just don't know how much is too much to use.
Love for my fine, wavy hair
Tamara from Michigan
I have hard to manage wavy hair with a mind of its own. I started using this on days where I just wanted to let my hair dry naturally and I love it. I get really pretty, beach waves with no frizz and lots of nice volume. I used this all last summer when I was in Florida for work and even the Florida humidity didn't stand a chance against this. Because my roots do get oily, I focused on my applying from my ears down and patted just a tiny bit above my ears, this works great for me and I highly recommend!
RisaJo from Maumee, OH
Having curly hair, I've never been able to just wash and go, but this product has made that a reality for me! Totally simplified my routine!
