        I got this as a free sample when I bought another Living Proof product. It really does wonders for my hair! My hair is very fine, thinning, and naturally wavy. This product smooths my hair, controls frizz, and makes it super soft and silky looking. I plan to buy a full size tube when the sample is finished.

          Comments about Living Proof T.B.D. Multi-Tasking Styler:

          I mainly use this in conjunction with the In-Shower Styler. I use a dime size amount after towel drying my hair, just to give my curls a slight "crunch". It also does a great job protecting my hair from heat, although it seems to make my hair tangle easier, so I really have to make sure I comb my hair thoroughly prior to blow drying.
          It says it also adds texture to day-old hair, but I find that it doesn't really work for me in that area, but I also have a lot of hair, and I haven't a product that does work for that.
          Overall, a great product, and it lasts me about 3 months.

          I never knew about the existence of the Living Proof products until I received a trial size on my ipsy bag and ever since then, I love it!!! I started purchasing the full size of the T.B.D. for my son, my husband and I and we all love how great it makes our hair look and feel specially my husband! He love it so much he switched from Gel to this and he has never looked back! Hair feels silky smooth, it controls frizz and it smells heavenly! Very happy with this product! We've been loyal fans for 3 years straight and will continue to be! Highly recommended!

          Product ingredients do not match up

          By abby

          from texas

          Comments about Living Proof T.B.D. Multi-Tasking Styler:

          I checked the product ingredients on this site and then ordered this. When product came, the ingredients on the box were completely different. One of the first ingredients listed on the box is petroleum, then alcohol. I do not want to use that on my hair at all. This is misleading. I will be returning the two of these that I purchased as I originally thought the ingredients were what ULTA has on their site. I someone like that and doesn't mind putting petroleum and alcohol in their hair then cool but that's not the case for me.

                      My hair is fine and prone to flyaways. Will this make my hair greasy? I have to wash every other day and use dry shampoo between each wash. I'm looking for a product to add body and decrease flyaways.

                        A:

                        T.B.D. Multi-Tasking Styler is meant to simply tame and manage, create a polished blowout, or deconstructed second-day hair. It does not have our thickening molecule which helps to add body. For body/fullness I suggest looking at the Full Line.

                    • Q:

                      Question about the whole style lab line and the Restore Perfecting Spray.

                      I have chemically treated, just below the shoulder length hair. I bought an expensive hairdryer for blowouts because red dye washes out so fast. My hair runs frizzy/dry and has some waves but mostly straight.. and loses volume quickly. What regiment from this line would you put together to reduce showering, create volume, extend the blowout/style, protect from the high heat of the hair dryer and help protect/"repair" damaged hair? Would you use the new perfecting spray with the regiment you suggest from this line?

                      Would this be a good detangling product to apply on my hair prior to brushing out my long, damaged hair (with a "wet brush")? If so, should my hair be wet, damp, towel-dried, etc.? I love the scent. Thank you.

                        If you are looking for a detangler I suggest the Restore Perfecting Spray!

                      How does this work on fine hair? How much should I use on shoulder length + 3" fine hair (but not thin, I have a lot of hair), when it is wet? Dry? I've tried the product but it seems I'm either using too much and it is weighing my hair down, or not enough and I can't tell any difference.
                      Thank you!

                        I suggest starting with a pea-sized product and going from there. Depending on the style you are looking for is when you apply the product.

                      I love LP Style Extender and am curious about this product. How is TBD different? Will this product extend the life of my hairstyle like Style Extender does?

                        T.B.D. Multi-Tasking Styler is a versatile styler that allows you to style in different ways. Prime Style Extender is a breakthrough, first-of-its-kind hair primer that extends hairstyles up to 2x longer. It reduces the need to touch up hairstyles and keeps your hair cleaner longer, reducing the need to shampoo as often.
