      This product made me feel like I had egg whites in my hair. It was very difficult to blow dry my hair and it doubled the amount of time it took to blow dry. My hair looked flat and dirty and I could not stand the smell of myself.

        I received this as a sample from Ulta. The small package lasted a full week, and I loved it! I am a Living Proof convert now. Start small and figure out the best amount for your hair - I used too much one day and learned my lesson. If you use the right amount and at least semi-blow dry your hair, you will have smooth, frizz-free, shiny, soft locks! And my slightly wavy-straight hair stayed straight despite the weather. Great product.

        Comments about Living Proof Perfect Hair Day (PhD) 5-in-1 Styling Treatment:

        This product does everything it promises. I have a long bob & lots of fine, gray hair so it tends to be course & wiry. When I use this (dime size) & section off the top third of my hair, I can use a round boar bristle brush & get a great smooth blowout in less than 10 minutes! It really delivers time after time- & humidity doesn't seem to matter either!?

                Comments about Living Proof Perfect Hair Day (PhD) 5-in-1 Styling Treatment:

                This stuff is great for frizz or wavy hair. I use it most when my hair is shorter and the ends tend to flip. If I use this product and the blow dry, I have no frizz and my ends look soft and really straight!
                I towel dry my hair and then rub a dime size drop of product into my hands and then work it primarily into my ends and very lightly along the front sections of my hair that frizz more. And then when there's next to nothing left on my hands I'll lightly brush the top/midsection of hair to tame frizz. Because this product is thick, the key is to start with less and add more the next time if it wasn't enough so it doesn't end up greasy.

                    I love Living Proof products but haven't tried this. I have color treated fine hair....with only a slight wave that I style in a short bob. How would this help? I already use the Blow Out product which I love.

                      PhD Styling Treatment has been formulated specifically to give the ideal balance of all five benefits women seek in beautiful, healthy looking hair: smoothness, volume, conditioning, strength and polish. It is not about concentrating on any one benefit in particular, but rather the combination of all five. No Frizz is designed to eliminate frizz by helping to block humidity.

                    I love every product I've tried so far. I have really fine hair, and worried about breakage and thinning. Can I use this with the thickening creme? Thus far, I'm using the dry shampoo, volume blast, and just purchased the pre-shampoo treatment and thickening creme. My next purchase will be the full shampoo and conditioner and 5 in 1 styling product, I think. Volume, as well as keeping my fine, color treated hair healthy. Would this be a good idea for both?

PhD 5-in-1 Styling Treatment is a styler that provides smoothness, volume, conditioning, strength and polish in one product. They can absolutely be used together with Night Cap as your overnight treatment and 5-in-1 Styling Treatment as your all in one styler.
