Most Helpful Positive Review Great product, just takes a little practice
I have thick-fine hair (tons of it, but the individual shafts are baby fine), which changes from wavy to curly periodically. It is currently mostly very curly, but with some straight, kind of sticky-out bits. Because my hair is so fine, just trying to work product through it is enough to make it weighed down and frizz. I can't even part it with a comb. Even if I manage to get everything right, I need to then blow it dry with a diffuser, again, not touching it or moving too much while it's drying. A total pain that I've resolved by drying it straight. I've found that using In Shower Styling Treatment is the easiest way for me to get 'wash and go' hair. The biggest challenge is learning how much to use and, most important, how much rinsing is needed. The product instructions say 'rinse lightly.' I have learned to stop after a very brief rinse, just enough to re-wet my hair thoroughly. Then I just wrap it in a towel while I'm getting ready, shake it out, finger comb and go. If I rinse too much it gets washed out. Too little and it dries crunchy. So really the key is the rinse. Yes, I'm repeating myself here, because I think it is the key difference between loving this product and thinking it doesn't work. That said, I have a very specific type of hair and this probably works better for some hair types than others. Like all Living Proof products I've tried, this one also smells great.
Most Helpful Critical Review I'm trying to like it
This product is just really difficult to figure out. I have extremely thick, wavy hair. I have a lot of frizz and my hair always feels dry. I've tried it three times, the first time I felt a bit of crunchiness and I felt my hair was a bit too flat, frizz was definitely under control though. The second time I washed more of the product out but I couldn't see much of a difference in frizz control/texture. The third time I tried to leave a bit more product in but my hair felt crunchy and weighted again. It's difficult to judge how much to rinse off and how much has rinsed off. I've also notice that it increases my dry time significantly. I have really thick hair and there were still damp spots by bedtime with each use. I feel like they must be into something because frizz was controlled and smoother, but it's difficult to hit the correct product ratio.

I tried using this product just as directed on bottle, hair was a frizzy mess. I tried not rinsing it out, hair was a frizzy mess. Maybe I haven't found the right way to use it yet but I'm glad I didn't waste my money on full size bottle.
Don't know how but this stuff works!
Haircare Addict from Ohio
I'm so skeptical with in shower stylers but this one works so well! I get out of the shower, put a leave-in and then scrunch with a towel and that's it! I have no need for any curling gels, creams - nothing! Love it!
Quick hair fix
Pat from Memphis
I put this on after shampooing and rinsing. Lightly rinse out! Really just enough to leave a diluted amount on your whole head.
Mznu90 from Columbus, OH
It is a great product for quick styling. I bought this to take care of my fly aways, well it has not completely solved the problem but it has made my hair better than before.
Best hair product ever!

I have received many compliments on how lovely my hair looks when using this product.
It's a No for Me
Jenna from Detroit, MI
I was really looking forward to this, but it just didn't hold up to better products. It made my hair feel so dry and damaged that I just couldn't justify it. It did give it a nice wave, but I can get the same from other products that don't make my hair feel and look so dry. Won't be purchasing again.
Great for my hair
retiredteacher17 from Huntington, WV
I have short, fine hair that is cut into a pixie. I usually blow dry my hair for body. When I wash my hair and sleep on it....my hair looks awful! So last night I tried this product in the shower. When I got up this morning, my hair looked as if I had blow dried and styled it. I sure hope this product keeps working for me. I highly recommend it
Love for my fine hair
Marcia from Saint Augustine,Florida
I have very fine hair that is color treated this enables me to not to use a blow dryer and have some wave
Makes air dried hair perfect
Becky from Mebane NC
For days when there's no time to blow dry or you want curls to pop, this product is amazing!
Riley from Michigan
This product does nothing for people with straight hair. After I opened the product the instructions said that after using it you should braid your hair and it will give you the wavy hair. Whether or not you use the product and braid your hair it will of course leave you hair curly. IT IS A WASTE OF MONEY!! Don't buy it! I'm returning mine tomorrow
I will be returning this product.
SEU from Chicago, IL
I like Living Proof products but this one doesn't work for my hair. I have fine hair that can be frizzy from color treatment and straighting. Smells great but weighs down my hair.
Works so well
Ali from Long Island, ny
I have naturally wavy, naturally golden/dark blonde hair. This is a perfect product for me. Is weightless, doesn't dull or brass color and adds great texture and just the right amount of extra body and wave boost.
Godsend in humidity
SuzieSunshine from Long Beach Island NJ
I use this product constantly in the awful summertime Jersey Shore humid conditions it is a godsend in that it's let me air dry my hair all summer without looking like a brillopad!!!
it holds my curl for days without being too stiff.
KEI from Monterey CA
easy to use and just let my hair air-dry (in the summer) I have not used it yet when I need hair dry fast...i.e. blow dry....not sure how that will work out. However, on a summer trip it will be my go to!
Peach0066 from Atlanta, GA
I LOVE this product because it distributes evenly while the hair is wet. Makes my frizzy hair managable and It doesn't weigh hair down either....which I find that most styling products do.
Luvstoshop from Tucson, AZ
Easy to use and makes styling easy.
Not for straight hair
Paige from Erie, PA
Should have known better that this wouldn't work in my naturally straight hair. Wanted to give it a try but unfortunately all it did was make my hair look weird and crunchy. Returning.
Bebita from New York
Great product besides that the smell is amazing !!!! Leaves my hair soft with less frizz
alimatic from Austin, TX
As far as Living Proof products go this is not my favorite. It works but it's hard for me to figure out how long to rinse my hair. If I leave too much in it makes my hair crunchy and my scalp itchy. My hair is thin and pretty curly. It does help control the frizz and curl. Just gotta figure out how much to leave in.
Will keep buying
Michigan diva from Michigan
Best stuff for curly thin hair
Meh. My hair seemed flat.
BarBee from Indiana
Maybe as I use it I'll get the hang of it...work it into your hair then rinse lightly? Not the best directions. That's why I got a sample size.
Not a fan. Left my hair dry.
Gigi from Spartanburg, SC
I didn't care for this product because it left my hair feeling dry.
I like this product
SM from NY
I don't use this the way it is intended; I use it to add body to my thin hair. I put it in while showering & blow dry it.
Longer Lasting Styles
kac005 from Northeast Ohio
Love this in-shower styler! It makes my curly styles more defined and last longer. I have naturally wavy hair and use this product to help create a beachy / air-dried look. I use as recommended by applying in the shower and then lightly rinsing my hair. This product helps my hair hold a curl so my air-dried look doesn't fall flat! I use this in combination with a sea salt spray and some hairspray.
