    Comments about Living Proof Perfect hair Day (PhD) In-Shower Styler:

    I'm crazy about this stuff. It's so easy and is a better alternative to a sea salt spray or trying to blow dry to get the beachy tousled look. I have fine, thick hair that's straighter on top and wavier on bottom. I also live in a humid climate where heat styling is a pain.

    Not made for fine hair

    By Jessica

    from Wilkes-Barre, PA

    Comments about Living Proof Perfect hair Day (PhD) In-Shower Styler:

    I have fine hair. I tried this product multiple times it just didn't work well for me. It makes my hair all static. It's a great concept yes but not made for fine hair. Also needs more instructions on how much to use

    Amazing

    By MariaKam

    from Columbus, OH

    Comments about Living Proof Perfect hair Day (PhD) In-Shower Styler:

    I am obsessed with this!! I hate showering at night due to how my hair will look in the morning. The product has fixed that and now I can sleep in during the winter months! I shampoo/condition as normal then squeeze as much water as possible out of my hair. I use about a quarter sized amount and quickly rinse out - but not all out. I comb out and scrunch my hair and it air dries to the perfect finish! Have purchased several times and am excited to try in spring and summer. I have fine, color treated hair.

        Comments about Living Proof Perfect hair Day (PhD) In-Shower Styler:

        My hair is on the finer side and somewhere between wavy and curly, so this sounded like an ideal product for me. I was so excited to try it, but was really disappointed. The first time I used it I was afraid to use too much, so I figured it was my fault that it didn't work. The second time I used it my hair was taking forever to dry, so I did give my hair a very brief blast with the diffuser on my hair dryer, and again didn't see results that were anything close to what the product is claimed to do. The third time I used it I followed the directions to a T, and the product still fell short. The only good thing I have to say about this product is that it smells nice.

        Amazing for Curly Hair!!

        By CoCo1214

        from Georgia

        Comments about Living Proof Perfect hair Day (PhD) In-Shower Styler:

        I received this produce as a sample and was skeptical that it would work on my hair. But, it is amazing!! I used as instructed - after washing and conditioning in the shower. It gave me results similar to a hair gel but without all the crunchy curls. It was really great to let my hair air dry and keep a nice, natural curl shape rather than a large head full of frizz. I have since purchased this product!

            Comments about Living Proof Perfect hair Day (PhD) In-Shower Styler:

            Okay, I bought this product on a whim after I had made a commitment to myself to use less heat on my hair. My hair is wavy/straight and somewhat fine. The method I found to work best is to brush your hair BEFORE you get into the shower, shampoo/ condition as you normally would, apply the in shower styler and slightly rinse out. I usually apply a small amount of leave in conditioner and scrunch my hair and let it air dry. I always end up with beachy waves and it is an easy way to style your hair without using heat! Love it!

                Comments about Living Proof Perfect hair Day (PhD) In-Shower Styler:

                Disappointed. I'd been using PhD 5-in-1 and liked it, but when my hair got a bit longer & wavier I decided to try the in-shower styler. First time I used it I didn't like the results at all. It left my hair "wavy straight", i.e., shapeless, old fashioned marcel type waves, no curl at the ends & limp. Thought I might have used too little product so I rewet my hair& used more with only slightly better results. By the third time I tried it I used a blow dryer & styling brush until my hair was only damp & then let it air dry. Better, but not worth the money if I need to style it anyway.

                  What products (if any?) would you recommend using after this step if you have fine, curly hair? And does this help prevent frizz in humid environments? My regular arsenal of leave-in, oil, styling cream isn't holding up to hot humid weather so I'm searching for a new routine
