I’ve recently become obsessed with Living proof hair products. I have always had long and healthy hair – despite countless color applications and processing. Back in May of 2017, I had to cut my hair short because, I believe, the round of prednisone I was on for two months destroyed it. It could also be related to the IBD, but I lean towards the prednisone because my hair is finally getting better. FYI: it started getting better before I began using this hair care brand, but this has made all the difference for me. And, I am not a hair product person. The most I use is some leave in conditioner.
So far I love the Restore and No Frizz lines. I am going to try out the PhD line and some of the styling products. Here is a brief summary of pros and cons thus far followed by a teeny review of the items I have tried thus far.
- Pricey. I guess you get what you pay for, right?
- I actually see and feel a difference in my hair and no longer hate it.
- Free shipping and returns online.
- Available at Ulta and Sephora.
- Has decent promotions.
- Can be found on Groupon and other discount sites.
Restore: Shampoo, Conditioner, and Mask Treatment
- My hair felt like satin using these products. I used in combination with the humidity shield for a week, but I couldn’t bring myself to spend the $$$ on the large bottles of the Shampoo and Conditioner just yet. It’s expensive stuff.
Restore: Repair Leave-In
- This works really well to detangle and smooth my hair while leaving it soft and manageable.
Restore: Perfecting Spray
- I actually wanted to reorder this in a larger size, but I accidentally ordered the Repair Leave-In. I love this stuff. It leaves my hair silky without any indication of having used a product (i.e. oily). When I run out of the Leave-In, I’ll stock up on a big one of these.
No Frizz: Humidity Shield
- I use this as often as I can tolerate because the smell actually bothers me. Or, maybe it’s the smell in combination with how it lingers in the air? Whatever it is, this makes me cough. However, in humid-as-hell Philly, this product does work on my fine hair.
PhD: Dry Shampoo
- I just started using this and I have to say that it’s the best of the dry shampoos I have tried and I am a big dry shampoo fan. I usually use batiste brand as a go to.
Maybe my hair was already on the mend on its own, but this brand of hair care products is making that journey significantly more enjoyable.
