I've been meaning to review Living Proof products for a while, especially since I am giving a hard side-eye to some of their claims. (They invented new molecules? Really? Okay.) But, there's no question that some of these products are pretty damn good. Here's what I've tried and my thoughts:
Living Proof No Frizz Shampoo and Conditioner. This stuff? Is amazing. My hair is fine and stick straight...until it rains. Unfortunately I don't get pretty waves, I get frizz derp:
Living Proof Full Shampoo and Conditioner. I recently bought the travel size set because I've got hair product commitment issues. And...eh. It's fine. It's sulfate-free, smells good, and it makes my hair clean but I don't notice any extra fullness, fancy molecules or not. I will use up my tiny sizes and will probably try something else or will go back to my other over-priced favorite, Alterna Bamboo Volume.
Living Proof Perfect Hair Day 5–in–1 Styling Treatment. I was nerdily excited about this one. It does ALL THE THINGS! It smooths, volumizes, conditions, strengthens, polishes! YES. Or, as the case may be, er...sort of! It's a cream formula and, while it doesn't seem to weigh my hair down, it certainly isn't volumizing anything. My hair is pretty volume-adverse and I doubt any kind of cream is going to change that. It does, however, make my hair nice and swingy and smooth. I sent this to Marianne the first day I used this product because she is the luckiest girl on earth:
Living Proof Prime Style Extender. This is the one everyone loves and raves about but I don't really get it. To be fair, I don't think it's for the likes of me, an every day shampooer. This is for ladies with super long hair who only shampoo a few times a week, which I just can't do. I'm lately trying to shampoo every other day which is A SERIOUS STRETCH but I still have to wet my hair down completely in the morning which defeats the purpose of the Style Extender. I'm hoping it'll help with the non-shampoo days what with the fancy dirt-repelling molecules and all. If nothing else, it seems to be a good primer and gives my hair a bit of extra heft, which it certainly needs. The jury is still out on this one since I just switched to every-other-day shampooing, but today is a non-shampoo day and looks like this:
What about you? Have you tried any of the Living Proof products? What did you think?
