Living proof.® Perfect hair Day™ (PhD) 5-in-1 Styling Treatment

By definition, a perfect hair day means getting a gorgeous ‘do without spending hours in front of the mirror. Luckily this multitasking styler does it all in one simple step, providing long-lasting volume and greater hair manageability with added softness and shine thanks to the brand’s patented haircare molecules, PBAE and OFPMA. It even blocks UV rays, safeguards color, protects against heat, and works over time to give you smoother, stronger hair. Plus, the formula is safe for all hair types, including color- or chemically-treated strands and it's made without sulfates, silicone, or oil.

I did not like the smell of this product. It had a strong odor to it, like a cleaning product.

Not right for my 3A/3B corkscrew curly hair AT ALL. Was both drying and sticky (how's that even possible?) And made my curls flat. Nope nope nope.

Smelly

I don't think living proof is a bad brand but I hate the smell. It makes me sick every time I try and use it.

I did not really need this product. I love the smell of it but the product did not apply to my needs. I only use a shampoo (2/week) and a conditioner everyday so this product was not something I would use because I do not focus on my hair as much.

not for fine hair

some people swear by this product and brand but it never does anything for my oily, fine, straight hair. it just leaves it sticky and heavy. I prefer briogeo

Not a fan

I’ve tried this exact product before and I don’t like the texture it leaves my hair. Feels full of build up.

Disappointed

I had high hopes for this 5 in one product but it left my hair feeling tacky and stringy looking. Maybe I used too much? Will try again but I don’t look forward to having another bad hair day.

I haven’t been a fan of this product and maybe I’m using it wrong but I’ll give it one more try.

Smell it before you use it...

OK to start off: I absolutely love the Living Proof line, and use their shampoo and conditioner all the time. I got this "Perfect Hair Day" sample in my last Birchbox and squirted a blob in my hand this morning, and without smelling it, ran it through my hair.

Woah...it smelled like it had been on the shelf for years and years. I didn't have time to re-wash my hair but my gosh, based on the smell alone, I would not purchase this product unless I just happened to get an EXTREMELY old sample or something, because it smells like garbage mold. YUCK.
