How to Have a Perfect Hair Day

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!

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.

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!

    Love when hair products are safe for color treated hair. I haven’t colored in a while, but I still tend to get those products that are to keep my color vibrant.

    I’m obsessed with the LP no frizz line and Perfect Day has been just as good to me! I’ve yet to try something from this line that isn’t a win!

    My blog partner used and loved this line. She was thrilled with it. I worry about the fragrance but if it dissipates quickly enough I would love to use this.

    I only tried a hair mask from Living Proof before, and I loved it! I will definitely give this a go!
