Add this to the list of completely underwhelming Living Proof products. It does absolutely nothing beyong smelling good.
A mindblowingly mediocre product. It did NOTHING for my hair and in fact, I'm certain it felt drier than when I started. It leaves your hair oily and tacky unless you blow dry, and blow drying is not something I like to do every time I wash my hair. Don't bother spending your money on this, you're really not missing out on anything.
I got this as a free sample from Sephora. Probably would not have purchased it because frizz isn't a huge problem for me, but I do like to use styling creams to give my hair definition and hold. This weighed down my waves (not my intention) and I didn't care for the smell.
Makes my hair so soft and keeps my hair straight after I blow dry it straight while also preventing a frizz meltdown. The only reason I give this four lippies and not five is because sometimes I do feel I need a little extra conditioning but adding the no frizz leave in conditioner or the restore targeted repair cream to it helps with it.
HG product. Keeps my hair from frizzing in humidity and rain better than any other product I've tried. Not to say there is NO frizz, just MUCH less than with other products. I wish it came in a pump.
I'm not sure what the other reviewers are doing. I found with this products 'liberally' means about a quarter sized amount.
My hair background: I'm from a German/Eastern European ethnicity (for what it's worth, I don't understand what 'ethnic' means when people describe themselves). Technically, I'm pale pasty white for skin tone. However, although the rest of my family has thin hair their always trying to build volume in, I have thick hair. Around the nape of the neck, it curls into corkscrews. The layers above it is 'wavy' from ear length down, and the scalp is flat and often oily. I have no idea why my hair is that way, but it is. IF I let it air dry, the curls at the bottom stay curly, but the waves are maybe there, but it's just 'poof'. Frizz Ease just made my hair look greasy.
However, I blow dry my hair straight with a giant round brush lately because it's easier to wear down for work. B&B Hair Lotion has been my good friend, but I received a sample of this from Nordstroms. I was hesitant. I decided that 'liberal' amount didn't mean a huge glop. I used a quarter sized amount, concentrating on the curly section at the nape and ears and the rest from ear length down. I applied the styling cream to my very thick hair, and the quarter sized amount was just right. I have shoulder length hair, I should add.
Blow drying came next. The B&B spray I usually use makes my hair feel flatter and thinner, but this felt a bit - heavier...I'm not sure how to describe it. It felt smoother, and had a little more weight to it. Several people commented that my hair looked shiny, in a good way, instead of 'shimmery' like I get with the B&B hair tonic.
My next test came to the 'second day' style. I wash every 2-3 days, and wanted to see how it held up the second day. I woke up and some of the curl/wave came back. After my shower (hair in a cap), I did a quick blow-dry with a paddle brush instead. The hair smoothed right back out again and stayed that way. The roots did not look greasy at all. Usually with products like frizz ease, the 2nd day the hair starts to separate instead of looking uniform. Not so with this product. I would not recommend going a 3rd day without shampooing.
I would recommend this product, but I would start out with a smaller amount. This styling cream is meant to be used with a blow-dryer or a flat iron, I would not recommend it for air-drying. I believe most of the negative comments come from those who air dry their hair.
I marked as i wont buy again but really not sure yet . Because ... My hair is fine and dry and my major problem is frizz . I hate this so much and dealing with it for ages now. I have been using for quite long time now the Oscar Blandi Olio Di Jasmine and i keep using it cos i tho was helping somehow and nothing else i liked more. Now both products i apply on damp hair and let my hair air dry . I never use any heat or styling. i was quite happy with the OB serum but not overly as it was making my hair look glossy and soft but not much about the frizz. This new product in my routine do exactly the opposite. Really help with frizz in fact better than anything else i tried before BUT wouldn't make my hair soft or glossy . Dont get me wrong is not making my hair look bad at all but maybe cos i m use to the softness of the OB serum just feels different. And i wouldn't say is nourishing or moisturising as my hair feel like i have not used anything on ( for moisture or softness ) The big thing that made for my hair is my hair was left NEARLY without ANY frizz. Maybe i could try applying this after moisturising leave in ? Basically this is my experience with this product.
UPDATE - few uses later i really like this and REALLY HELPS WITH FRIZZ . What i notice is that i cant use this alone as my hair is dry. I use this on damp hair and after this i apply my leave in as well which at the moment is Kerastase elixir ultime. My hair ones dry is really much much better than how it was before. I have minimal frizz if at all. And i notice my hair looks next day good as well.
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.
