PHD in-shower styler
SampledPurchased

After receiving this product as a sample, I have never allowed myself to run out! I always air dry my hair, and, to be able to go ahead and style it while still in the shower is just incredible. When I get out, I just run a brush through my hair, squeeze out any excess water, and put it up in a microfiber hair wrap. When I let it back down after finishing the rest of my post-shower routine (a concept my bf still struggles with... “What are you still doing in there??”), I run my brush through it again, and I’m essentially good to go! It air dries so nicely with this product; and, if it’s particularly humid or anything, I can just add a defrizz cream or serum to the ends once dry. Love all Living Proof PhD products!!

Not for me

Sorry but I have really dry hair and this did absolutely nothing for my hair. It has good reviews so I hoped it would work but nope.
Maybe somebody with normal fine hair would benefit from it.

HIGHLY RECCO
Sampled

This product is wonderful. I have medium thick hair that gets oily somewhat quickly at the roots but is kind of dry from middle to ends because I color treat (not as much as I used to tho). I try to wash my hair every 2-3 days. This product has made air drying and blow drying my hair a breeze and much easier than previously. My hair always feels squeaky clean and super soft after using this product!

Not Impressed
Sampled

I was not impressed by this product. I have fine, wavy hair that I can usually scrunch and wear wavy or easily straighten. I used this hoping it would be a good product for wavy hair days, but it left my hair limp and lifeless. It also did nothing for frizz-control. It smelled nice though and it made my hair feel nice, even though it didn't look nice.

After much trial and error
SampledPurchased

I discovered that if I use it as a leave-in product AFTER the shower rather than rinsing, it works wonderfully. I have medium length, medium thickness, graying hair with a moderate wave. Can’t not use it now. :)

I have long fine/medium hair that is just a little wavy. I like to shower at night and when I use this before braiding my hair and going to bed , I wake up with beautiful hair. It holds the wave and gives it a healthier, shinier look without the frizz I usually get when air drying. I don't like to heat style because of damage so this is a must have.

Game Changer
Sampled

I have super fine/thin hair, so I only use a tiny bit of this in the shower to avoid weighing my hair down, but this is the only product that has allowed me to air dry my hair overnight and have it look good enough to roll out of bed in the morning, spray a little texture/wave spray into it, and go. My morning routine is so much simpler now!

All-time favorite
Sampled

There are tons of products meant to make beach waves or scrunchy curls that give great texture but there I haven't found another one that balances hold and texture while staying smooth/frizz-free.
With less than two minutes of work you get a totally put-together look.

This Product is a Game Changer!
Sampled

I was really unsure about how well an in-shower styling product would actually end up working out, but oh my god, this product is INCREDIBLE! It provides texture, enhances my natural soft waves, and gives hair a bit extra volume. Highly recommend! I love this brand! Everything they have is always great!

Does what it says!
Purchased

This is a great product that softens and extends my blowout. It’s not oily even though it is a very thick formula. Overall I have been very happy with all of this brand’s products.
