Birchbox Breakdown

Air-drying doesn't mean you have to go product-free. Enhance your strands with this convenient in-shower styling cream that adds texture and definition with magnetic texturizers and cationic resins while also making hair easier to manage without looking or feeling like you put any product in it. Formulated with a hydrophobic resin to control flyaways and the brand's patented thickening molecule, PBAE, for fullness, it gives your locks effortless movement and body that everyone will think is natural.

How to Use

Shampoo and condition hair as usual. Apply a generous amount to coat wet hair from roots to ends while still in the shower. Lightly rinse, then towel dry. Scrunch and let air dry. If you have naturally straight hair, try putting your hair in braids or buns and letting it air dry for best results.

Was just ok

I was really excited to try this out as I have long hair that I hate drying. Unfortunately this just didn't work with my hair. I followed exactly as it directed, twisted my hair into side buns and my hair was still soaking wet when I woke up. Next time I may try to let my hair almost air dry completely before setting it before I go to bed. However the product didn't really make my hair different, it did feel a little weighted down once dried. It wasn't a horrible product, just wasn't for my hair

Good product for wavy or frizzy-haired girls.

I have wavy, frizzy hair. I got the Living Proof PhD In-Shower Styler as part of their PhD sample package. I use it as directed; I shampoo and condition my hair, then apply about a nickel-size amount of the In-Shower Styler to my hair, let it rest on my hair while I wash the rest of my body, then gently rinse it out. I have noticed that my hair has been easier to manage since I started using it, especially since I air-dry my hair. I do plan on buying the full-size product at some point.

I'm lazy, but now I have beautiful hair

Thumbs up! This saves me a lot of time in the mornings, although it took a little practice to figure out the right amount and distribution of the product.

Good, but not fabulous

It smells good, but very strong. So if you don’t like the scent it might be a turn off. Not sure my hair was s Tom better than normal. I will keep experimenting with it.

this product might work for someone with more thicker hair but unfortunately it was not great for my fine thin hair :/
