This is the 3rd Living Proof product I've tried. My actual rating is 3.5 because it's not the products fault that I am only looking for volume which it gives some, but not enough for my personal preferences. It does leave my hair soft, a bit of shine, no product buildup.
I have already tried (and reviewed) the Full Thickening Mousse and Cream. I figured this advertised volume in its list of attributes, so why not? Strictly speaking for volume and on my hair, the mousse works best, followed by the cream w/ this a close 3rd. I love the contaier (small that it is) and I find it best to store upside down so there is no waiting for the product to work its way down + never too much is dispensed. This does leave my hair soft and w/ a bit of shine, but so does the mousse. It give me enough volume for what other folks might be happy with, but I like LOTS and LOTS of volume = I'll finish this up and then go back to the fantastic mousse.
This (like the other LP products) is pricey for the amount you get.
Hands down my HG hair product line. I am so amazed by the results. My hair is naturally curly but I frequently straighten it. I haven't gotten my hair cut in a month but after using the PHD shampoo, conditioner, and leave-in for a few days my hair feels freshly cut. The best part is the shampoo is sulfate free and the entire line is silicone free. Love it! The only two other products I use are AG Set It Straight and the original Moroccanoil treatment. Even though the PHD products are slightly expensive (shampoo & conditioner are $24 each for 8 oz) it's completely worth it.
I'm not going to lie, I'm a product junkie. I am always looking for the next best thing. I always switch from high end shampoos & conditioners to drug store brands and I have to alternate the shampoo and conditioner I use on a daily basis. My hair is thick and is someway dry. When I first used the shampoo when I was lathering it up my hair felt like straw. It was terrible. I figured I was going to hate this stuff. When I used the conditioner it was amazing! I have never had a shampoo and conditioner that doesn't dry my hair out or weigh it down but makes it shine & give it volume like I just walked out of the salon. I must say I am in love!
I really like Perfect Hair Day as I feel it makes a definite difference when I use it .... my normal routine is I use Living Proof's Style Extender, followed by Perfect Hair Day and my favorite Frederic Fekkai Elixir and let my hair air dry and I have nice hair that lasts until I was it next ...... Perfect Hair Day and Style Extender also work great if I use a curling wand, as I find that my curls and style holds until I wash the next day ..... (I am not a fan of Living Proof's Shampoo and Conditioner line, however, their styling products are wonderful.) I find that Perfect Hair Day works great as a styling products and does help with toning down frizziness and helps with locking in my style. Another plus is that I find that this product makes my hair so soft. This is a great product when I want my waves to appear looser (I have another favorite from another line when I want wavier or curlier hair.)
I have fine, straight hair that lacks volume, is color-treated, and can get oily on the scalp and is dry on the ends. I attended an event at Ulta where they style your hair with the product and was concerned when I could "feel" some product in my hair. I was terrified it would look weighed down or greasy so I was very surprised, then, when it did neither of these things.
I took a sample home, and after a few weeks of use, I've noticed my hair DEFINITELY has much more volume, but not to the point of poofiness (which is a problem with Aveda Pure Abundance) - the smoothing quality really makes my hair look clean, sleek and styled, even with a large amount of volume. It is more polished looking, with less static and dryness. I use it directly on my roots, too, with no clumpiness/grease - also a problem with Pure Abundance.
Also, I am ecstatic that it is dimethicone free -- my hair is super shiny and doesn't feel a bit sticky, clumpy, or greasy -- which means I also haven't been pulling much hair out when I brush it or play with it throughout the day. The UV and heat filters are a major bonus too.
But the main reason I'm buying this isn't marketed on the bottle -- my hair is so fine that it kinks so easily when slept on, windblown, etc. My hair holds styles so well with PHD (again, without stickiness, stiffness, etc) that I am able to rock day 2 and sometimes day 3 hair without extra styling -- which was NEVER possible before. And, it is easily restyled with blowdrying. I am shocked that my hair doesn't accumulate grease either.
Bottom line: Go buy this. Lives up to every promised bullet point on the bottle, and then some. Anything that requires less styling while looking nicer is aces in my book. New HG product!
Fortunately I got a very large sample from Sephora and did not have to waste my own money on this product. I absolutely hate it. My hair feels heavy, greasy and just gross when I use it.
I've tried it when my hair was wet and let it air-dry and also prior to blow drying my hair out. Both times the result was the same - heavy, weighed-down hair that looked oily. I'm using a pea-sized amount and my hair a little longer than shoulder length. I have very normal/healthy hair and I think this is too heavy for my hair type.
I love the idea of products that can do multiple things so that you can reduce the amount of clutter in your cabinets. Before this I had Pantene BB cream. That was fine but I like this better because it can also be used on roots. After showering (using shampoo & conditioner), I only use this before blowdrying. I tried using mousse/root booster too but that seemed to make my hair greasier faster & I think this works fine on it's own. Not skyscraping height but a nice amount. It gives body to the hair as well.
I'm very happy with the product. Downside is that the packaging kind of sucks. Hard to squeeze & I think there will be a problem in getting all of the product out of the tube. And at $26, I'm not going to throw it away if I can get a few more uses out of it. Might have to break open the tool box. :-)
I wrote that I wouldn't repurchase just because I have a feeling that similar products will be coming out soon that might be better & cheaper. But if those don't materialize, I would buy this again
This is a miracle worker!!! I have wavy hair naturally and it can be pretty unruly! I previously had been using Bumble and Bumble Straight Blow dry which was really good.....that was until I tried Perfect hair day!! At first I was using too much and it was not good but than I started using maybe a size of a quarter and presto perfect hair!! It is soft, silky, smooth but still looks full and my ends are frizz free! That was a huge issue before and I was using a frizz taming oil for my ends ( however they still looked frizzy) now those days are over and this is truly the ONLY product you need to use!
I am going to clear out my closet of 15 different body building, shine enhancing, frizz reducing products because this is the one and only product I will ever again need. I wasn't ready for what this produced. I was told to use just a smidge and I wondered how so little could possibly do much and well it just blew me away. The rundown: my hair is moisturized, silky (very silky), shiny and just loaded with bouncy (and resilient) body. Am I dreaming? My hair is in good condition and is full but it is fine and wavy but that is compromised by living in an area with soft water which just makes it flat, no shine, gets dirty easily. This product overcame all of those insults and gave me hair that is easy to manage and that I am PROUD OF! Do not hesitate if the price is holding you back. The amount needed is miniscule.
I love this product so much!!! The smell is addicting! I've never found anything that makes my fine limp hair as healthy and shiny looking as the p.h.d it really does make your hair perfect!!
