I participated in an Influencer Activation on behalf of Influence Central for Living Proof. I received product samples to facilitate my review and to thank me for my participation.
Awhile back, I posted about trying out the Living Proof PHD hair care line of products and now after using them for over a month, I wanted to give you a little update and let you know what I really think of them!
Since I have kinky curly hair, I will let you know how it worked on my type of hair. For people with curly hair, we have different challenges than those with straight hair.
For instance, I do not wash my hair everyday or it would dry it out. I wash my hair about every 3 days so I need products that will not make my hair oily.
I also need a good conditioner. Conditioner is a life saver when it comes to tangles. There has only been 1 product that has ever worked out most of my tangles so I was skeptical whether or not the Living Proof conditioner would work.
The problem is when the conditioner does not get out enough of my tangles, I spend at least 20 minutes just combing out the tangles, which leaves me with lots of broken hair and more hair pulled right out of my head!
The Living Proof conditioner worked so well! It worked out enough tangles where I spent less time than normal combing out my hair AND I found I could use less of the conditioner to get good results. I feel like I would normally have to use half a bottle of conditioner just to get the tangles out but with Living Proof I could just use a normal amount.
If you want to know how to get frizz-free curly hair with lots of volume, check out my step by step below!
First I washed my hair with the Living Proof shampoo and conditioner.
After brushing out my hair, I make sure the ends are still damp. Sometimes it dries out while brushing it so just re-wet your hair in the sink.
Next I get about a quarter size amount of the 5 in 1 styling treatment and run my fingers trough my wet hair. I have really long hair so I do this at least twice.
Next run your fingers through your head over and scrunch the curls with a towel!
Now flip over your head and spray a light spray of hair spray mainly on the ends of your hair. This keeps your curls from frizzing. You need some kind of binding agent to keep the curls in place.
Let your hair air dry for a few minutes. I normally put on my clothes or makeup then blow dry my hair.
Now I bet you didn’t know hot rollers were still in but let me tell you they are! My hair is normally super limp after blow drying it. So I hot roll my entire head after it’s completely dry. This gives me volume and lots of it! Remember these are a few extra steps BUT if you’re like me you don’t have to wash your hair daily.
Last but not least, take the rollers out and flip your head over and shake the curls loose! I then apply another light round of hair spray and then I’m done. I like big southern hair but don’t worry it doesn’t stay that big forever. Your hair should settle down a little and it will look amazing!
And now through Nov. 8th, with an order of $20 or above you can use promo code: NOV2014 and get a travel size bottle of the PHD 5 in 1 styling treatment. Plus you will get free samples and free shipping!

And now for my before and after picture!
The picture on the left is my before. You can tell my hair looks frizzy and processed!
Look at my after picture on the right! Doesn’t my hair look healthy and frizz free and the curls even look better. If you don’t have curly hair it’s hard to understand but when your hair is healthier, your curls curl better.
