I'm on my third purchase of this product; it's one that I use religiously when I blow dry. I never thought I'd like it, but I absolutely do.
I have very fine, straight hair that tends to get flyaways much too easily. I've never considered my hair to be frizzy in the traditional sense; frizz might actually give my hair volume! These flyways are delicate hairs that just won't behave or lay flat - so annoying!
I've been working on growing my hair longer and paying detailed attention to treating it gently and keeping it as healthy as possible. This product showed up as a sample somewhere along the line (Birchbox? Ulta? Not sure) and I tried it for the heck of it. It worked great! My hair is shiny with minimal flyaways!
I think it does cause buildup on my hair, so I shampoo with a clariying 'poo weekly.
im a hairdresser/makeup artist w over processed, waist length hair, i heat style often. i can say tht iv wrked in an LP salon n the shampoos n conditioners r terrible. the serums stick the hairspray smells. but THIS product is fabulous. ppl on here r probly not using it properly. i apply the most at my ends, easing up as i reach my roots, comb thru damp hair n either air dry r blow dry. flat iron/curl after. even in hot, humid minnesota summer weather my hair is smooth, shiny, swingy, no sideburn curl lol. it also stays clean way longer than usual! which is great bcuz i can only wash every 2-3 days since my hair is so delicate. overall great styling product. love it!
I received a generouse sample of this from Sephora. I hated it! It did absolutely nothing to tame my frizzy hair. I have coarse, thick, dry wavy/curly hair that got drier and frizzier this summer after going ombre :( I struggle with frizz, and have major envy for those ladies that can air dry and not look like a total mess.
I washed and conditioned my hair and then applied a liberal amount as per instructions. I still looked like the freakin "before" girl on a frizz-ease ad LOL. I would never buy the full size.
Absolutely hated this line. I have dark brown, highlighted hair that's mid-way down my back. I blowdry every 2-3 days and occasionally use a flat iron. I try to use sulfate- and silicone-free products to preserve my color and protect my hair, and had heard great things about the LP line.
I tried the Restore Shampoo and Conditioner, No Frizz Styling Creme and Weightless Spray, and Satin serum. I could tell that the shampoo and conditioner were drying out my hair while I was still in the shower -- I couldn't run my fingers through my hair at all. I used the three styling products when I got out of the shower, and started to blow dry. My hair felt like straw, and when I tried to add a little more of the Satin serum, it just felt like sticky straw. My ends looked completely fried and the cuticle just looks frizzy and not smooth at all.
I tried the shampoo, conditioner, and products 3 more times since I first purchased and tried them 2 weeks ago, and finally returned everything to Sephora today. In 2 weeks, I have not worn my hair down once because of how poofy and dry it looks. Not recommended!
Combined with Living Proof's Full Thickening Cream, this product did a good job of holding and styling my wavy hair that I air dry. The problem was the cetyl alcohol. It caused big red bumps on my face that went away a couple days after I stopped using this product. Would not recommend unless your skin is okay with that ingredient.
This product is AMAZING. I'm a little confused reading the other reviews saying that this product made their hair worse. I applied just a small amount to the ends of my hair and barely any on my roots so they wouldn't get greasy, and my hair didn't frizz all day. It had been raining for days and my hair looked shiny and it held its curl.
I had always had problems with my hair frizzing even if I stepped outside in the humidity for a minute, but this product lets me stay out in the humidity for hours without my hair frizzing and keeping the style it had in the morningl.
I love this product and I can't live without it! Would recommend :)
Absolutely AWFUL. dont recommend...
did nothing at all for my hair... actually managed to make it worse!!!
If I had actually spent any money on this I would have actually returned it, or sent it back to
the manufacturer... thats how poor I feel the product was.
It did not leave my hair feeling moisturised and did nothing whatsoever for frizz...
there are cheaper products that do a much better job.
I tried the initial offerings from the No Frizz line of Living Proof around the time they were first introduced, and they just didn't cut it for me. I had flat out terrible results. Recently, I cut out silicone as an ingredient in all of my hair products (I have 3A hair that I usually blow dry straight). It's easy to find cone free shampoos and conditioners that perform well but harder for styling products-at least on my type of hair. I love this. LOVE it. Granted, I've only been using this for two weeks, and I'll update if I change my mind-I'm a product junkie-but this is a great product so far. When I blow out my hair I get a bouncy, smooth, frizz free blow out with some volume. If it's super humid, I get a little frizz after a blowout but not much, my hair gets a little wavy. It could be a little softer (which is where the line's new serum comes in-love that stuff) but it's great all around. I would give this product four stars if I was just reviewing on frizz protection and the blow-out I get, but when I apply this to wet hair and let it air dry my hair is unbelievable. I get zero frizz hair with spiral curls and tons of volume. It's amazing. And the cream rinses off of your hands with water, I have not found build up to be an issue. Having read product information about their technology on the brand's website, I do think that silicones and Living Proof ingredients just don't go well together. If you spent money on this and are not happy with it, try getting the silicone out of your hair and see if that works. If you are only looking for something to blow dry with, I would get their new Satin Serum if you wanted to get something from the brand. I'm actually wearing my hair curly by choice these days, rather than because of time or weather. Again, keep in mind I've only used this for two weeks but if you were a friend, I would personally recommend it.
I was very impressed by the "science" behind Living Proof products but I was very disappointed in the results. I have thick, dry, wavy hair and it did not do much. It might have actually made my hair more frizzy. Other products on the market are far better. Also, the smell might be better if it was a little on the lighter side.
I got a sample of this at Sephora after telling an employee I needed something anti-frizz for my hair. My hair is fine, wavy/curly, and there is a lot of it, so it frizzes VERY easily. At first use, I loved the product. My hair air dried soft, shiny and as loose waves rather than uncontrollable, frizzy curls. I went out and bought the full bottle for $40, thinking I had found a miracle in a bottle. I guess this was a freak occurrence because after that, this product never did anything for my hair again. It made my curls a bit tamer, but that's about it. It did not tame frizz or prevent frizz from humidity. I used it for about two weeks before deciding to return it. I'm not going to keep something that I paid $40 for when it doesn't even really work. If I'm paying that much for a product, it better do a hell of a lot for my hair!
Try a sample first and use it for a few days before you buy it. Maybe it'll work for your hair, but it didn't for mine. I also did not like the tube. After you squeeze to get the product out, the tube becomes 'bent' and loses its shape, even after just one or two squeezes - it's strange. Not a huge deal, but it's just not aesthetically pleasing (I'm a sucker for nice looking products).
Overall, my John Freida Straight Fixation cream works better than this, and I paid $7 for a tube of that.
