I am not usually one to use hair products. My routine is super simple: wash my hair with a natural shampoo and conditioner, and blow-dry. I heat style every 2-3 days, since my hair is naturally straight, but typically don't use any styling creams or sprays when I do. However, when I heard about Living Proof (and smelled them) I decided to give products a try!
Besides further complicating the getting ready process, my main concern about styling products is that I don't like to wash my hair too frequently and am hesitant to introduce any oils that might make it greasy the next day. I was pleasantly surprised to find that I was able to stick to my wash schedule without a noticeable change in grease! This could have been because I used the Prime Style Extender, but I want to use this one a few more times before I can safe for certain!
Since I prefer a more natural/soft wave to my curls I usually skip the hairspray, but the Flex Shaping Hairspray didn't make them crunchy or heavy feeling. I was able to wear the curls again the next day, brushing through to eliminate tangles. They bounced right back, only slightly looser than the day before! I honestly probably wouldn't purchase this product, just because my hair is thicker/dryer and tends to hold well on it's own. However, someone who needs the help maintaining a style might like it more.
My favorite product was definitely the Blowout spray. It was so easy to use, since I just had to mist all over before blow drying, and it smelled amazing. I would for sure buy this product, because I felt less snags when brushing out to dry, and my hair honestly looked much softer and shinier than usual. I was actually really worried that I wouldn't hold a curl because it was so soft, but it really didn't seem to cause any problems.
T.B.D. was a little more challenging for me. I have always struggled with creams because I really feel like I can't get them evenly applied and I worry about the product being too concentrated in one area. Then I end up using too much...
Overall I am pretty happy with my experience with Living Proof, and I would recommend them to those who are more likely to using styling products in their routine. Blowout was easy to use and seemed worth the (small amount of) effort needed, so someone as lazy as me would definitely benefit from giving it a try.
Have you tried any Living Proof products? Any others I should take a look at? Let me know what you think!
PS. Can we take a minute to appreciate the fact that Noodle sat still long enough for photos?? And I *barely* even had to bribe him with any treats!
