Birchbox Breakdown

Why settle for a good hair day when you can have a perfect one? The hair care geniuses at Living proof.® crafted this innovative formula to banish bad hair days once and for all. This shampoo keeps hair cleaner for longer by repelling dirt and oil, thanks to OFPMA (the brand’s exclusive “healthy hair molecule”), which forms a weightless shield around each individual strand. Plus, this cleanser delivers five key benefits for healthy, luminous hair—smoothness, volume, conditioning, strength, and polish—without stripping hair of its natural oils, plus protects hair against UV rays and heat styling. It works on all hair types, including color- or chemically-treated hair, and is made without sulfates, silicone, or oil.

still undecided

I purchased this product because I have a very sensitive scalp and I liked but it was sulfate and silicone free. after using it for several weeks I am still undecided how I feel about it. while it does seem to keep my hair clean longer than the typical shampoo, I also feel like the ends of my hair have been extra dry and straw-like since I began using this shampoo and conditioner. it also seems that despite using the conditioner, may hair is still quite tangled after getting out of the shower. I guess for how expensive this combo was, I was just expecting a little bicon is one more con is the scent... I personally do not enjoy it. on the upside, I have had no issues with my sensitive scalp. no itching or other side effects. I will give it a little bit longer but I don't see myself ever purchasing this shampoo conditioner combo again

Amazing shampoo!

I purchased this shampoo because I had read a review that stated using it would allow me to go extra days between shampooing. I have fine, color treated, slightly frizzy hair that goes wild in humidity and falls flat the second day after a shampoo, so I gave it a try. Wow! Three days after shampooing, my hair is soft, shiny, smooth, and looks as clean as the day I washed it! I could probably go 4 days without washing. I have tried dozens of shampoo/conditioner combos, and this one is a keeper. It's on the pricey side, but I don't use as much, so it evens out. I definitely recommend this one!

I wanted to love this, but I just can't

I bought a small sample of the PhD shampoo to take on vacation. I have absolutely loved every other Living Proof product I've tried, so I assumed I'd love this, too. But I don't. It doesn't lather (which is fine, I'm used to sulfate-free shampoos by now and they don't all lather much) but it also doesn't spread well in my hair. I have long hair, so I feel like I have to use a ton of this to get it evenly distributed. Also, it doesn't seem to rinse as clean as most shampoos I've used. Maybe it's the hard water we have here, but I feel like I either waste a lot of water rinsing or I have an itchy scalp for the next day or two after using it. I love the smell and, once I use a lot of shampoo and rinse, rinse, rinse some more, it does leave my hair feeling clean for several days (an admitted plus - I have dry hair and don't water-wash it more than a few days a week). Overall, though, I expected better from this brand. Maybe for people with short hair and soft water!

Actually lives up to its name

I use this in conjunction with the PhD conditioner, 5-in-1, and Night Cap, along with the Full Thickening Cream. My hair has never looked or felt healthier, or taken less time to style. I have fine, wavy hair (and lots of it), and this gets it clean and helps it to stay hydrated and frizz-free without drying it out or weighing it down. My hair has improved over the time I've been using PhD, and really helps bring out the best in my hair. Definitely a keeper.
