    Comments about Living Proof Perfect Hair Day (PhD) Conditioner:

    I've got mid-length dark hair. My hair is somewhat dry and tangles due to highlights. Been trying various smoothing shampoo/conditioners since my previous favorite was discontinued years ago. On my 2nd set of bottles of Living Proof. The products leave my hair smooth with out being too greasy or heavy. Other projects tend to make my hair look stringy with out body.

    I bought the bulk size of this and I'm very happy I did, I tend to use a lot of conditioner but with this stuff I might not need to use so much, it moisturizes my dry hair very well, it feels so soft and silky without weighing my hair down. My hair doesn't tangle nearly as much with this as when I used to use Pureology, which made my hair get in knots constantly.

      Comments about Living Proof Perfect Hair Day (PhD) Conditioner:

      Love this conditioner for daily use. However, the bottle is a beast ! I have to use two hands and squeeze very hard to get any product out. Kind of hard to do....usually I squeeze the product from the bottle into the palm of my hand and then apply to hair. I have to squeeze this onto my leg or directly onto my head. I can't imagine how a person with arthritis in their hands would ever use this product. I feel like I'm not going to be able to get all of the product out because the cap won't come off. Hope Living Proof works on this.

        Comments about Living Proof Perfect Hair Day (PhD) Conditioner:

        I am a fickle haircare product user. I buy a lot, usually don't finish because I wind up hating it. I've got a closet full of half used shampoo and conditioners. After my hair changed after pregnancy, I stared using conditioner differently. I only use it on my ends and maybe a nickel sized amount (I have fine, this hair). I leave it on my poor, abused ends for maybe two minutes while I do face care then rinse. The bottle lasts about a year when used this way, so we'll worth the 20 something dollars it costs. This product leaves my ends soft and shiny, extending the life of my haircut between salon visits. Also, the smell doesn't really hang out too long, which I hate since I wear perfume and would rather have people smell that.

              Comments about Living Proof Perfect Hair Day (PhD) Conditioner:

              This did not live up to the hype for me - this in conjunction with the shampoo was the absolutely worst on my hair. For reference, I have fine, straight hair. Because it was all such a pricey investment, I had to finish up at least 3/4 before I eventually had to throw it out. My hair was frizzy, lifeless, dull, and oily - yet very, very dry. I had to use dry shampoo the day after I washed it - which was really tough for me because I like to wash my hair only 1-2 times a week. I ended up cutting 9 inches off and switching over to Redken, and my hair is already a million times healthier. 10/10 would never recommend. YMMV, though.

                My hair was smoother, shinier, more manageable, with noticably more volume and fewer flyaways after using this product only one time (in conjunction with Perfect Hair Day shampoo). As a person who has been known to drop $50 plus on deep conditioners, I am super impressed that a daily type conditioner gave me such amazing results!

Back to my old conditioner and I swear in ONE day back to normal. For the price this should make hair healthy but there's nothing healthy about this!

                        Perfect hair Day (PhD) is for anyone that wants more perfect hair days. Whether you have multiple hair concerns or consider yourself to have "normal" hair, PhD is for someone that seek a balance of smoothness, volume, conditioning, strength and polish.

                    • Q:

                      I have been using Living Proof PhD for over a year now and I absolutely love it. I wash my hair about every 2 days but flat iron every day. My hair seems like it's getting more dry, or not as soft as it used to be. Should I switch something else, or is there a leave in product I can add to my routine?

                        A:

                        If you have dry hair, we'd recommend you extend shampooing for as long as possible. You could do that with our PhD Dry Shampoo. Irritated scalp can be sensitive to any type of cleansing, so it may take time for it to normalize, and letting it rest might be the best option. With that said, if your hair is really damaged, consider using Restore Shampoo and Restore Conditioner, if it's only somewhat damaged, consider PhD Shampoo & Conditioner. We also suggest using a product like PhD Night Cap to help bring your back to a healthier looking state faster.

                        We'd recommend using the PhD Conditioner in conjunction with the PhD Shampoo that you already use. They're meant to work together to keep the hair smooth, hydrated and cleaner longer. Also try PhD Fresh Cut (Item #: 2301744) to keep your ends smooth in-between trims!
