Living Proof Review

Even though I live in a state with semi-dry weather, I still seem to have frizz issues with my hair. Our weather here can sometimes be warm one day, and chilly and rainy the next. Weather issues aside, I have always had a difficult time trying to get the perfect look for my hair, whether it’s the perfect shine or the perfect touch. I’m sure by now I have tried at least a hundred different shampoos, conditioners, and products in order to get that perfect look.

I found exactly what I was looking for when using the Living Proof frizz® shampoo, conditioner, and styling cream. I was a bit hesitant to try another frizz-free hair care system; the last one that I used weighed my hair down. My hair stylist always tells me that I have a lot of hair, but that it is very fine. It is already enough of a challenge for me to add body to my hair without using products that weigh down my hair.

I put the Living Proof frizz® shampoo and conditioner to the ultimate test when I went to California last month, but unfortunately did not have an extra travel bottle to take the styling cream with me. I have been to California a handful of times in my life, and noticed when I was there at the ages of 16 and 17 that I had so many problems with my hair. During my adulthood, I’ve used higher quality shampoo and conditioners, but found that I was having the same problems as I did in my teen years when I returned to California. I couldn’t get my hair to completely dry, and any attempt to straighten it with a flat iron resulted in frizzy, out-of-control waves by the end of the day.

I wish I’d had the styling cream with me in case that was the missing ingredient for perfect, frizz-free hair in California. I used the shampoo and conditioner each night I was there, and found that my hair felt completely dry. I was even able to get it almost straight with my flat iron. However, an afternoon in Disneyland did all those crazy things to my hair that I am used to while in California. Again, I don’t know if this is because I didn’t use the styling cream along with the shampoo and conditioner.

Once I got back home to Utah, I began to use Living Proof frizz® shampoo, conditioner, and styling cream daily. My hair dries completely (only on the days I’m patient; sometimes I find wet spots near my roots), never feels weighted down, and I am able to get the straight, sleek look that I love with my flat iron. Just to compare, I switched back to Suave Professionals for a day, and hated the results. My hair felt dry and it wouldn’t straighten with my flat iron, so I pulled it up in a pony tail since there was nothing I could do with it.

When using Living Proof frizz® shampoo, conditioner, and styling cream, I get consistent results. Other brands of hair care products that I have tried just cannot compare. Additionally, they are also sulfate-free and don’t leave my hair feeling greasy or oily. All your hair woes will come to an end once you try out Living Proof frizz®.
