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

    I absolutely love this line. The conditioner is amazing. I feel like my hair is soft and healthy. I have medium length thick hair so I use a lot of product like half the bottle. This I don't use a lot at all like maybe a quarter cup. When I use so little in a conditioner is an absolute miracle. I test so many like redkin, Paul mitchel, Shea moisture, bed head, biolage, and everything under the sun it feels like and I feel like my hair has never felt like this!!! My hair doesn't get extremely frizzy after I blow dry. I have fell in love with a hair product like I never have before!!!

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

            I love the shampoo! I am trying to use up some Redken stuff that I don't like, because it is not effective like PhD shampoo for excessive oil. However, at different times of the month I get extremely greasy, so I use the PhD formula of both shampoo and conditioner then. I used to use both shampoo and conditioner of PhD all the time until my hairdresser said that my hair was dry. So once all of my Redken shampoo is used up, my go-to routine will be the PhD shampoo and a nourishing drugstore conditioner (I switch around). Its effective because this way, the oil is controlled, my hair is soft and shiny, and I save money by not buying the PhD conditioner!

              Did not condition well. Not worth the money. I had to use a matrix deep conditioner to restore moisture to my hair after using the perfect hair day shampoo and conditioner for two months. Even my hair stylist noticed a difference in the texture, shine, softness, and overall health of my hair (that it was negatively affected by the living proof line)

                  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.

                    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.

                      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.

                          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!

                          We recommend Timeless Conditioner instead of PhD, this will be more fortifying and has amino acids to help strengthen your hair and will not weigh the hair down.

                        Hi, I have coarse, curly, frizzy hair. I get it colored for grey every 4 weeks and Japanese straightening every 6 months. It's 85 percent grey. Right now it's feeling and looking brittle and dull. It breaks easily. While I like joico shampoo and conditioner I need more intensive repair. What shampoo and conditioner, etc. do you recommend ? It seems like I have no oil or lustre. Thanks so much l! Btw ! I am from India (so you'll understand my hair type).

                        I have fine curly hair and struggle with frizzy, dry ends and undefined curls. Is this the best living proof product, or is there a better living proof shampoo and conditioner to use? I'm looking for softer and more defined curls Rather than a product that will straighten.
