I bought a sample pack from sephora and wanted to try it out before spending big money. Which included a full size treatment, there is a lot of product that lasts a long time. I have long fine hair and after letting it air dry without anything in I get a lot of frizz and fly aways (annoying) But with this treatment in I can feel how smooth my hair tends to get and styling is super easy when my own hair tends to "listen" to me. Great product!
The product doesn't work very well for a person with fine hair. At first I liked the texture and the scent, it worked on my hair to make it soft and styled but within a few hours my hair was flat and weighed down.
I think this product is better for someone with thicker hair texture.
While it may seem pricey for a hair product that little bottle last forever. I think my first bottle lasted 6 months! A little dab will do. this is the only product I need to blow dry may naturally wavy hair into any smooth or round brush wave I want. Even de-frizzes a quick hand tousled blow dry.
I received this product as a free sample from Sephora. I have a hard time finding a product that softens and adds sign too my hair without making it look greasy. This product was phenomenal! It tames my hair, which can get dry in the ends and acts as a leave-in conditioner as well, making my hair easy to brush and style. Though this is an expensive product at $26 for a 4 oz bottle, it has lasted me a very long time. I only need to use a pea size amount and I have long, thicker hair. I did not notice much of a difference in volume with this product, but the other treatments is promises - smoothness, strength, condition and polish - have all come through. I definitely notice when I do not use it in my hair, it has become part of my daily routine before blowdrying and styling my hair.
So there is a lot of science behind this product (reduces breakage by 78%, for the first time ever they have combined patented Healthy Hair Molecule – OFPMA – and their own Volumizing Molecule – PBAE), but really the claims are that in one step you will have added smoothness, volume, conditioning, strength and polish to your hair. It also claims to keep your style cleaner for longer, and it’s sulfate-free, silicone-free and oil free.
These all sound like the ingredients required for a perfect hair day! I gave it a try, but was confused at first because there are two ways to wear this product. You can either apply it to your clean, damp hair and then comb through, or for best results blow dry your hair. Usually I find products say you must blow-dry to heat-activate the product, so I was surprised you could just leave it in and that the perfect hair day promise would still stand.
The smell is a light citrus, and although it smelled great I didn’t smell it in my hair after I blow-dried it. As soon as I started blow-drying my hair I was surprised because my hair felt way softer. It’s probably the quickest I have ever seen a result from a product in my life. My hair was instantly becoming softer, and I wasn’t even done blow-drying yet!
I tried not to get too excited, and went to bed with my super soft hair to see what would happen in the morning.
I woke up not even remembering using the stuff until I started to use my hair straightener, and then I realized that my hair was very soft and smooth. LIVING PROOF provides some tips and tricks for the product, and they say if you use a flat brush as I did when blow-drying, your hair will have a more smooth and polished look. I can attest that they were right on that one!
So I went about my day with what you could call a “Perfect Hair Day”. No frizz, it stayed smooth all day, but I can’t attest yet to how much stronger my hair is because I don’t know if I would ever notice that, but the only thing missing was volume. That could be my fault as one of the tips and tricks LIVING PROOF offers for this product is that to enhance body you should apply the product, and blow-dry using a round brush instead of a flat brush. Sorry, I don’t even own a round brush so I couldn’t test this one out.
LIVING PROOF also mentioned that when air-drying with this product to use a little less of it, and so I did when letting my hair dry naturally. My hair was left very soft, and I could smell a bit more of the product in my hair this way as well.
