Acted like a conditioner. No significant boost to volume.

Broken Promise
Sampled

This product was promising, but like all other Living Proof hair products I have used, it left my hair very dry , frizzy, and very dull.

I didn't notice a difference
Purchased

Although this product smells nice, I didn't notice any difference in the health of my hair and it wasn't any smoother. I'm noticing a lot of breakage and I was hoping this would help, but it didn't. I won't be purchasing this again.

FAR from a perfect hair day!

I have fine, color-treated hair that gets oily at the root. The description made this product appear to maybe be a new fave staple, but it does not measure up.

After I initially blow-dry my hair, it does look nice and smooth, but by mid-day, my ends look shredded and I have flyaways all over. This cream just does not hold up to humidity.

Not Great
Purchased

I was really excited to try a living proof product but I have to say ... I was disappointed. The product has a nice grapefruit smell but made my hair flat and greasy. I just used a tiny bit but as the day went on my hair looked worse and worse. It did seem softening but it might be better for thicker or curly hair. Would not buy again.

Just didn't work for my hair :(

I've heard fantastic things about this product but it just didn't work for my hair. (3A/B thick curly hair. Think Shakira hair)

Does Alright but not a Miracle
Sampled

This combined with a glaze for colored hair give me a pretty good hair day after a couple hours – in the first part of the day, my hair moved his unit, but without the blow drying skills necessary to get the body and angles that I wanted, it was just my hair with a slightly waxen hold between strands. Only after it calmed down or redistributed did I go, well, that looks nice--and it was not much different tha

Not what I was expecting
Sampled

I really wanted to like this product. My hair is thick and wavy, so my usual styling approach is to leave conditioning spray in my hair after I wash it, scrunch it a bit, and go. However I felt like my hair was flat after using the treatment, even though I applied it sparingly. Maybe it is better for use with a blow dryer.

It was ok

This product was light, but lacking hold for my masses of medium texture hair. I am a die-hard when it comes to protection, so I appreciate that.
