Birchbox Breakdown

Curls are like bad boys—they can be stubborn, unruly, and sometimes rough around the edges (no matter how much we love them). Luckily for us, the geniuses at Living proof.® have found a way to tame the latter. Their cream formula conditions curls while delivering a bouncy, flexible hold that is resilient to humidity—thanks to its patented “healthy hair molecule,” called OFPMA. Plus, the product makes styling easier—whether you want to enhance, elongate, or shape your strands.

How to Use

Starting with a quarter-sized amount, apply evenly through clean, wet hair in sections. To enhance curls, scrunch hair with towel. To elongate curls, comb damp wet hair before applying the product. For more shape, wrap them around your finger or a pen, framing the face. If your curls tend to frizz, don’t touch or disrupt curls until they’ve dried completely.

Second Time is a Charm!

Gave this a second try today after using way too much product during my first use. I am able to use much less with this product than any other product I have used before. I have naturally thick, course hair so in order to keep it tame, I generally have to use a lot of product. No so with this! A little goes a very long way and the end result has my head of locks looking 3 times thicker than they usually do! I am amazed with the volume! My natural curls came out beautiful, well defined, bouncy, soft and no sticky residue afterwards. My hair has truly never looked better!

This whole line of products -- Living Proof -- is amazing. They smell fantastic: peppery and herbal and sweet all at the same time. They are rich and emollient, and they all do what they promise. In this case, I am usually skeptical of curl "creams" - my hair usually doesn't respond to them well, preferring gels and mousses to creams. Not so with this: after washing my hair, I towel dry it and put a very small amount (considering the size of my mop) into my palm before running it through my curls and plopping my hair into a jersey drying turban-thing (read: an old long-sleeve T-shirt). After 15 minutes, I pull the turban off, and my curls are full, controlled, smooth, and tight - AND THEY LAST ALL DAY. I will buy this often.

Wonderful product for wavy hair

I have fine but thick, wavy hair, and this product is awesome. It enhances my waves without weighing my hair down or making it crunchy. Exactly what I was looking for!

FInally my perfect curl cream!!

I have struggled to find a curl product that doesn't weigh down my 2b/c curls but provides enough curl 'encouragement'. This is it! I can use it alone (no additional products) to get shiny, voluminous, bouncy, well-formed curls - all day, every kind of weather. Such a terrific find!

Ive got the trifecta of bad hair...

I absolutely love this! It helps me style and keep calm the frizzy tendencies of my incredibly fine but very full head of hair without weighing it down.
