I was thinking the other day as I looked into my over spilling of products in my shower that extend up onto the towel rack, that I have way too many hair care products. There isn’t one day that I don’t go without one falling and torpedoing like a missile down onto my toe. Does that happen to anyone else? Mark has stopped asking “babe is everything okay?” because you know, loud dramatic falling noises in the shower. Just wanting to make sure I didn’t fall asleep standing up or anything, then take a tumble. Nope, it’s just my 32oz bottle of conditioner taking a direct hit to my pinkie toe.
Anyways. That was a long visual. I was thinking about how I find my hair care products. 95% of the time it’s from the love of my life Jesse, who has been doing my hair for the past 10 years. We are going darker and I love it. Jesse and I have an agreement that she will tell me when I’m too old for mermaid hair. Currently, she says I can still rock it. I love Jesse because she never pushes any products on me. She’ll just say things like “I used this on you today and think it would be great for you, if you don’t want it no biggie“. Then she gives me a friends and family discount and I’m out the door.
My first purchase on my own without her influence was an Amazon purchase and I was pretty happy with it. I read the reviews on there and was like hello prime lets try you out. I mean lets be honest, I wash my hair 3-4 times a week, so products last for me. When I was contacted by Living Proof to try out their products I immediately headed to their site before I answered. I like to do my research as you know. I’ve used their products in the past, mainly from Sephora samples and I really liked them but never followed through on the big girl bottle purchase.
So I headed to their site and liked what I found. They have this product selector tool that deduces it down to finding what works best with your hair.
Sold. Boom. I also read the reviews. THERE WERE A LOT OF CAPITAL LETTERS USED and exclamation points!!!!! People were clearly quite happy with this product. Since I’m a science nerd, I read the behind the scenes of the philosophy and how to of the brand.
Now, can it live up to that bold statement?
Well, so far so good. I have definitely been impressed with the first sweep of tries with these products. I usually can tell right off the bat if my hair doesn’t like straying from what it knows but so far, I have been loving the results. My favorite part of the line is definitely the styling and recovery products. They have a clean scent without being over powering.
My other favorite loves from Living proof are the nightcap overnight perfector. It lasts up to 5 days. I put two pumps into my wet hair and in the morning it looked like I had a mini keratin treatment. My hair is thicker, has more volume and my flyways are gone. Plus it was super shiny. I didn’t have to run my flat iron over my ends. This is a find. Hello silk soft baby hair. My other love is the restore instant protectionI always use a heat protectant before flat ironing or blow drying. This one protects up to 450 degrees and leaves my hair soft without weighing it down.
Oh and they have a dry shampoo. Just saying. Check out this article.
Here is a quick shot of my current locks with using the PhD line. See, super shiny.
I also ordered the PhD line in a mini travel kit. Now, I don’t have to worry about the shampoo roulette of hotel showers anymore.
I’m happy to say I’ve found my new hair care line. I cleaned out my shower and my pinkie toe is very happy with the Spring Fall cleaning. Have you tried Living Proof before? Which line do you like? Have you heard of the PhD line before? Having to wash less. Yes please.
