    Comments about Living Proof Restore Repair Leave-In:

    This product didn't do much for styling or conditioning. It has no heat protectant effect. It is also runny and some sticky. But it is easy to apply. maybe it works better for thinner hair. It also has the characteristic Living Proof smell, love it or hate it. Returned as didn't see any benefit esp for the price. Their blowdrying serum is much better.

          Comments about Living Proof Restore Repair Leave-In:

          I usually don't write product reviews, but this product has changed my hair! I've been using it for almost 2 years now. I have straight fine blonde hair that I lighten. For years I had trouble getting my hair to be longer because my ends always got dry and broke off. I tried this product out of desperation and it's saved my hair. I'm able to still heat style it along with the living proof restore spray in conditioner and my hair has grown so much now that I'm able to keep the length. Use it every time I was my hair and sometimes in between, it is expensive but lasts almost a year so it goes along way. Worth the expense!

              Comments about Living Proof Restore Repair Leave-In:

              I have never been one to use more than shampoo and conditioner in my hair. I've been getting tired of how lifeless my hair felt and looked, so I decided I was going to cut it but when I found this product, I noticed the most dramatic difference in my hair. It looks so much healthier and shinier and vibrant than it did before. My hair is very long and thick and just a little goes a long way. I love that my hair went from dull to bright. I will definitely buy this product again! Well worth the price! I don't even have to cut my hair anymore which is the best part!!!

                    I LOVE this product. For the last several years, I've used a deep conditioner one day a week and that has helped improve my hair. However, once I started using this daily (but not on deep conditioner days), I can tell such a difference in the smoothness and silkiness of my hair vs when I don't apply. This has definitely become my holy grail hair product.
                    I have been coloring my hair for about 8 years (including a few years of box dying my brown hair blonde YIKES) and in the last 6 years or so have been getting regular 6ish week haircuts. Fine, stick straight.

                          Fresh Cut is meant for all hair types and specifically targeted to sealing ends. Restore Instant Repair is recommended for dry/damaged hair. It provides richer conditioning that targets damage sites from root to tip and helps prevent future breakage.
