Living Proof Perfect hair Day (PhD) Dry Shampoo cleans beyond ordinary dry shampoos. It's powered by Living Proof's patented Healthy Hair Molecule (OFPMA) and Triple-Action Cleaning Technology that:
  • Absorbs and removes oil, sweat and odor
  • Makes your hair look, feel and smell clean
  • Works on all hair colors because it leaves virtually no visible residue or powdery build-up behind
  • Has a time-released fragrance to deliver a light, clean scent throughout the day

Perfect hair Day (PhD) Dry Shampoo is ideal for all hair types. It is silicone-free. Safe and formulated for color and chemically treated hair.

"Dry Shampoo" has been a bit of a misnomer as products on the market haven't actually cleaned your hair. The powder-based formulas soak up oil often leaving behind a dirty residue you can see and feel. That's not clean hair - that's just dirty hair in hiding. Living Proof Perfect hair Day (PhD) Dry Shampoo's Triple-Action Cleaning Technology tackles the three dimensions of clean hair: how it looks, how it feels, and how it smells.
  • Fast-absorbing powders soak up oil and sweat
  • Living Proof's patented Healthy Hair Molecule (OFPMA) reduces the surface friction on hair, so it's easy to remove the powders that have absorbed the oil and sweat in your hair
  • Odor neutralizers eliminate less desirable smells and time-release fragrance releases a light, clean scent all day long.

CLICK HERE to see how Perfect hair Day (PhD) Dry Shampoo works
Shake can extremely well for maximum cleaning results. Hold canister about 6-10" away from dry hair. Section thoroughly and apply product in a sweeping motion to dirty and oily areas. Wait 30 seconds for the powders to activate and cleanse. Then remove by massaging and shaking at roots with fingers or brush hair. Apply more if needed, make sure to shake can again. Style as desired.

Tips & Tricks: See white residue? A little residue that can be removed easily is normal (that's the cleaning in the works). If you experience more than that, make sure you shake the can and hold the can farther from your head.

    My hair is already up from exercising. I simply drop my head down and spray under my head. Give my head a few swings and throw my head back. Takes away the sweaty smell, dries the sweat, and when people go in behind you to change they do not smell your sweat.

                Comments about Living Proof Perfect hair Day (PhD) Dry Shampoo:

                I have very long, not super thick, stick straight light brown/dark blonde hair. I have tried probably a dozen different dry shampoo products, and this is by far my favorite. It does a great job at absorbing oils and giving a little volume. It does spray out with a white powder, but it shakes out of my hair type quite well and I am not able to see the white powder at all. This is the dry shampoo I will buy over and over again.

                    The only dry shampoo that I have genuinely fallen in love with! Other products don't always work as well, but this dry shampoo is the real deal. Until I found this dry shampoo, I would wash my hair every other day. Today is day six with this dry shampoo and I don't even a bit of oil or grease in my hair. Smells clean, absorbs well.

                          Does this product work on fine, dry hair that is color treated and highlighted? Oily hair is not my problem! I need to shampoo/blow dry less to keep from drying out my hair even more.
