My Experience with Living Proof Full Shampoo
First of all let me tell you a little bit about my hair type. I have normal-dry slightly wavy hair which lack volume due to my hair being very thin. I also sometimes suffer from frizzy hair are dry scalp which is prone to flaking.
I always wanted to try products from the Living Proof range as I have heard great reviews about it and paraben, sulfate free products are a bonus which I am happy to accept. So let see how this product fared for me.
Packaging The plastic bottle is very sleek and smooth to touch with a push down cap which make it even good to take on travels as the bottle will not leak. The dispenser gives out controlled amount of product hence avoiding wastage.
The shampoo has a clear gel like consistency which is not too runny. It lathers up easily and about a quarter sized amount is good for my below shoulder length hair.
The shampoo cleans hair of all oil, dirt and product residue in a single rinse. I have used this product without following up with a conditioner as I wanted to see how this product worked on its own and I was very pleased with the results. Even without using a conditioner my hair did not feel dried out at all. No dryness also resulted in there being fewer frizzes.
My hair felt smoother, noticeably softer and did not feel weighed down at all which works to an advantage for my thin, volume less hair. I do not see it giving me a lots of bounce or body to my hair but my hair did feel very lightweight. My hair does not feel lifeless anymore. I also do suffer from itchy scalp sometimes due to my scalp being dry but ever since I started using this shampoo I have seen a considerable reduction in that too.
I do not have colored hair but this shampoo does claim to be safe for chemically treated and colored hair too. Few more good points about this product are that it is sulfate free, paraben free, silicone free and oil free which eventually do lead to damaged hair in the long run.
This shampoo has a very light clean scent which does not linger on hair at all after its dry.
Overall Very pleased with the quality and performance of this shampoo on my hair. I will recommend this product. I like this enough to repurchase it but I will want to try out other products from the Living proof range too.
