So you know how sometimes you just do NOT want to go through all the trouble of getting in the shower, washing your hair, drying your hair, stylish your hair and doing ALL THE THINGS that encompass hair care every. single. day of your life? I know I’m not alone here, people. Not to mention, with my fake ginger mop, I need to wash it less often just to keep the color alive. Well, when Mom Central came to me with a campaign for Living Proof, a hair care system that makes it easier for me to wash my hair less often AND grabs my hair by the ponytail (or double ponytail) to get it under control, I was absolutely in.

I’ve done all sorts of things to combat needing to wash my hair, from baby powder to remove some of the oil to testing out that dry shampoo phenomenon (am I doing it wrong? Is it even working?), I figured trying a new hair care brand couldn’t hurt!

I received my Living Proof PhD shampoo, conditioner, and styling products in the mail last week, so I’ve had a little time to test them out, but I’ll be back in a few weeks to give you a full report on how well it works for my hair. But I CAN tell you about my first impressions and observations.

Living Proof

So far, I’m loving the  smoothness and frizz-reduction which I noticed immediately. I love sulfate-free products because they’re also fab for colored hair. I haven’t used heat on it yet (because I don’t often have time to blow dry my hair when I’m racing out the door to work), but I will soon. Scout’s honor. My hair feels lighter (and I have a LOT of hair). The products have a light citrus smell (probably some type of orange or tangerine), which I don’t love (I’ve always had a weird aversion to citrus smells), but Brian insists that my hair smells really good. PhD doesn’t keep those pesky allergens out of my hair, so I still need to wash every other day to avoid the allergy death match with my eyes.

I’m going to keep it up and keep you posted in a few weeks.

Here are some of the basic deets:

 PhD Shampoo and Conditioner

  • PhD (which is OBVIOUSLY short for Perfect hair Day) includes a shampoo, conditioner, and 5-in-1 styling treatment designed to do all the things! It’s supposed to deliver smoothness, volume, conditioning, strength, and polish with one simple routine
  • The PhD shampoo and conditioner are designed to keep hair cleaner, longer  so that lazy busy girls like me don’t need to wash our hair as often
  • The products are sulfate-free, oil-free and silicone-free, giving you the freedom to use them without worry about less-than-awesome ingredients 

 PhD 5-in-1 Styling Treatment

  • After using the PhD shampoo and conditioner, applying the styling treatment to damp hair (with or without that pesky blow dry)  will  pretty much accomplish everything you want from a hair care product from creating smoothness, boosting volume, and strengthening hair to providing heat protection, UV protection, and static control
  • The styling treatment is oil-free and silicone-free
  • Blow drying with a round brush will enhance volume and body
  • Blow drying with a flat brush will create a smooth, polished blowout

You can take the PhD challenge with me by signing up on the Living Proof website.

  1. I so can’t get dry shampoo to work for me either. It just makes my hair crunchy and sticky.

    I need to wash my hair less because not only do I colour but I have curly hair. A double dryness hit. I compensate by using hair oils and good deep conditioners.

      1. I like Moroccan oil but I’ve switched to Macadamia Nut oil when I’m air drying and L’Oreal Mythic Oil when I blow dry. Both smell fantastic! And help with friz and general dryness.

  2. My hair gets nasty if I don’t wash it daily- I feel like I can’t wear it down because it lays funny. My hair is super super fine and super super straight though, so the slightest amount of excess grease weighs it down like nobody’s business. Then it gets piecey and weird and ew. I’m sure it’s not good for my color, but I’m so paranoid about my premature grays that I see my stylist all the damn time anyway. Even if I wash it at night I feel like I have to wear a pony tail the next day. My hair and I have issues.

    1. My mom has fine hair as well and has to wash her hair in the morning.

      My stylist says I have enough hair for 3 people so if I wash it in the morning, I’m lucky if it’s dry by early afternoon and then I feel weird because I wonder if people are wondering why my hair is wet at 2pm. I mean it’s just a lot of hair, I’m not sweaty or anything!!! My hair is giving me a complex.

  3. Hey Chrissy, love your new site, but wheres the next post button? Am I missing it? I hate having to go back to your main page to see your next post!

    1. Christine, I added a plugin and now there are links to the previous and next posts just above the comments section. The titles are in gray; the top left links to the previous post and the bottom right links to the next post!

      Hope that helps!

  4. I tried the dry shampoo once and it just made my hair worse. I have to wash mine everyday or it just drives me crazy. This is probably the least important observation, but I really like the containers for this particular product. They are sleek and cool. Maybe I am just overrun with kid hair products over here!
