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.

    I am a busy mom always on the go and dry shampoo has become a staple in my beauty routine.
    I have tried multiple brands and this is BY FAR the most effective at getting my hair back to back to looking clean and styled. My Day 4 hair has never looked better!

      • Oily Hair

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

      I haven't been able to skip a day of washing my hair since I was a child, because my scalp is oily and my hair is fine and straight. Other dry shampoos were OK for a weekend night at home alone, but I could never leave the house with them because my hair still looked oily. I used Living Proof PhD dry shampoo for the first time today, and went to a basketball game with fiends. My hair looked and looks still, now that I'm in bed, beautiful. I may have used too much of it, as the scent lingered quite a bit, but it's my first time. The first of many perfect hair days to come. I've never been so thoroughly floored by a consumer product as I am by this one. Buy it and know the freedom of constantly beautiful hair!!!

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

          I love the PHD and hair sprays from this line and was excited to try the dry shampoo. But I didn't care for it. I think I prefer a powder dry shampoo. I didn't feel like this absorbed the oil and almost made it look worse.

            I have tried a few different dry shampoo products and was not impressed. Then I received this one in my Christmas stocking. I tried it, and couldn't believe how great it made my hair look. Not greasy, thin, limp. It smells great and your hair looks "just washed" all day.

              This is the only dry schampoo which works on my oily hair days. Cleans very well, and leaves no white cast on my dark brown hair. The major con, and the reason I give it 4 out of 5 stars is its pricey! Very pricey...

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

                I have extremely fine hair, that I also highlight blonde. Needless to say, my hair is very easily damaged. An Ulta employee actually helped me decide on this specific one after trying so many. It doesn't leave a buildup or that white residue unless you spray like crazy and way too close to your scalp. It adds nice volume, all while truly making my hair look as if I've washed it. My usual problem with dry shampoo is the residue it leaves behind, and how heavy it makes my fine hair, totally making it limp. My hair tends to get greasy so fast, so much so that it will become gross within 12 hours, and this has been a life saver! The time I now get to spend in between washing my hair has helped it strengthen a lot, as I tend to over wash and dry out my hair.

                      If you are looking for a product to help with your color we suggest the Timelesss Pre-Shampoo treatment. Using dry shampoo will help with dirt and oils, therefore washing your hair less which is better for color treated hair!

                      A:

                      It's not a clear formula, so some white residue, that is easy to remove, is normal and expected—especially if you have dark hair. To remove the white residue, rub and massage hair with fingers and/or use brush. A boar's bristle brush will be the most efficient in removing the powders. If white residue still exists, use a blow dryer.
