So y’all know I am majorly obsessed with makeup and skincare. You might not know that I am also obsessed with my hair. I don’t write about it nearly as often, and the reason is probably because ever since having kids it ends up in a top knot often. The three ways I wear my hair are straight, curly, or in a topknot, and you can guess that wearing it down at all is way more work! I have naturally wavy, coarse, unruly hair and it’s a pain to style. It’s long-ish these days and color treated, and post-partum hair loss is a real thing. I lost a ton of hair around my hair line and six months later, it is FINALLY growing back, but still looks kind of janky.
I have scads of hair products everywhere in my house, but would you believe on the average day, I hardly reach for any of them? I don’t like to reach for five things every day. I like it quick and considering my hair air dries most of the time, it’s easier for me if I don’t have to apply two things, blow dry, apply another thing, etc. Just get ‘er done!
Recently, Living Proof sent me a product to help me with my hair woes called Perfect Hair Day. It promises to be a one stop shop for delivering five hair styling benefits- smoothness, volume, conditioning, strengthening, and polishing. I’ve worn it several different ways and wanted to sing its praises from the mountain tops!
The bottle is short and the texture is a light cream, almost like a leave in conditioner. I heat style occasionally with a straightener or curling iron, and rarely blow dry my hair. I usually shower at night before bed and apply this, starting at the bottom of my hair and working my way to the top. If I use this at night, I usually wake up with perfect waves. Typically, I wear my hair in it’s natural waves the first day of washing, and the second day, I will heat style it. The third day I wear it up.
Below, you can see a picture of my hair after using this for about a month every time I wash my hair. I’m on second day hair, straightened. I didn’t even have to apply heat protectant when using this because the PhD Styling Treatment offers both heat and UV protection. When using this, I can use heat on my hair up to 450 degrees and it contains UV defense that protects against the sun’s damaging rays as well. This is safe for my color-treated hair, is sulfate-free, silicone-free, and oil-free. I really don’t think you could ask for anything more out of a styling product!
