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

    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.

    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!?

            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 this stuff, whether I'm styling my hair straight or curly. A little goes a long way!
                  The only thing I absolutely hate is the packaging. I wish they would put this in a regular squeeze bottle because once you get near the bottom, it's difficult to squeeze the bottle to get product out. Even when I've got the bottle resting on the cap, the sides of the bottle are too stiff and it gets tougher and tougher to get enough out. It's also difficult to get the lid off so that I can scrape it out.

                      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.
