Living Proof

I meant to post about this last week, but sometimes fantastic outfits and things come up and other ideas get bumped. Sorry, it happens. I have been wanting to do this post for a while but it took me some time to work through all these products to provide a quality review. Living proof has been making the rounds lately. If you read any beauty blog they have probably talked about it in the last few months. I first saw a post from Cara from Maskara (funnily enough looks like she posted about it again, so you can get her opinion too) and Kate from The Small Things Blog. I even got a sample of their dry shampoo in my most recent Birchbox. I get it the hint, Living Proof! I decided to give it a whirl.

Originally I ordered the dry shampoo and it came with three samples so I tried to find the best options for my hair needs. Seriously, they have so many products it is really hard to know where to start. I kind of covered my eyes and just picked three and confirm. I gave each one a fair shake, then decided to pick up their blowout spray. I have always wanted a good blowout so I figured, what the heck?  Also, excuse some of the photos. My camera decided it did not know what it was doing and I could not fix it. I am not a great photographer.  



Perfect Hair Day, Night Cap Overnight Perfection


This was one of the first products I tried. This is the over night protection. The directions stated to put on the ends of your hair overnight to wake up with healthier and more shiny hair. I used it a couple of times and unfortunately I did not notice much of a difference. After a few times I dumped it. This was a bit disappointing, but that's ok there are plenty of other products I know that make my hair shiny. Buy here


Perfect Hair Day Dry Shampoo


This is the product I have seen getting the most attention. Dry shampoos are all the rage and we are always looking for the best option. I read the science behind this and Living Proof brags that their product works by actually cleaning hair, not just soaking up excess oils. Sounds great right? To my surprise I did like this. If you are a reader of my blog you know I have a serious sensitivity/pet peeve to products that leave residue.  This was far and improved on most dry shampoos I have tried. I actually really liked it and would encourage you to try it if you are looking for a good one. Minimal residue and definitely made my hair feel cleaner and not just covered by nice smelling product. I will say my absolute favorite remains Klorane. Absolutely no residue with that product, but this is a close second. Also easier to buy as you can get it at Ulta or Sephora. Buy here

 Perfect Hair Day 5-in-1 Styling Treatment


This is another one of the "big push" products I have been seeing. This product boasts combining styling products of smoothening, volume, conditioning, strength, and polish. I was really excited for this one. Who would not prefer to buy one product versus five? I am sorry to say this was a huge disappointment for me. I used it a few times and my hair felt very weighed down and had that feeling that product was in my hair. I like to think of hair product like good foundation: the best ones you cannot even tell  you are wearing. This is was the biggest disappointment for me, it was just a bit too much. Buy here

Prime Style Extender Cream


This product, this is a real winner. I had yet to be blown way by these products so by the time I got around to this I was unsure. I try really hard to not wash  my hair every so I am always trying my best to get my hair to look as good on day 2 as day 1. I saw a noticeable difference in volume and life in my hair on day 2, without residue. (P.S. if you are playing the 'each time she says residue drinking game' I suggest you stop at this point). The other great part is you do not need much of this product for it to be successful. Seriously, less than dime size. I have started using this every time I wash my hair and will be buying the full version when I run out of this one. Buy here

Blowout Spray


Do you enjoy how the other products have crazy long names and this one is just "blowout"? Am I the only one who thinks that's funny? Anyway, I have been dying to do a blowout. I want my hair to look effortless windblown while putting in a lot of effort to look that way. In the meantime I thought I would give one of the products a try for a little DIY. I just bought this the other day and tried it for the first time. It was not a success, but I think it was user error. I ran out of time to use this product appropriately and my round brush is falling apart. I could tell that if I could get the technique right, this would really work. The spray had good consistency and did not weigh my hair down, even on second day hair. I am going to  make this work. When I do I will post a picture. Buy here


What do you think? Have you tried any of the living proof products?  I would love to know what you think.
