Let me tell you the brand’s story before I start the review. This was a “high end celebrity salon” exclusive product and Jennifer Aniston (my ex-sautan :P) was a huge fan of its products. When she heard that the brand is closing shop, she personally intervened and became a co-owner of Living Proof and the rest is history. This is one of the best-selling special products for hair these days 🙂
Living Proof’s No Frizz Leave-In Conditioner is powered by their patented Healthy Hair Molecule (OFPMA), which is the biggest breakthrough in anti-frizz technology in over 30 years. Healthy Hair Molecule weightlessly blocks humidity 70% better than silicones and oils. Nourishes and provides optimum moisture levels. For all hair types. Oil-free. Silicone-free. Safe for color and chemically treated hair.

My Take on Living Proof No Frizz Leave In Conditioner:
I have been really sick the past few months and it was taking a toll on my energy and my hair. My hair was all brittle and I’m not really a product person – so it was all frizzy too. My usual TLC is just a clarifying shampoo and a conditioner, maybe a deep moisture pack once a week. I went to Sephora and had a consultation where in the SA asked me to really refrain from all the styling products and use heat only when necessary.
She suggested that I use a leave-in conditioner as kind of a treatment between washes and it would strengthen my hair follicles thereby reducing hair fall. I am using this since more than a month now and I must really say that she was not wrong.
This comes in a grey plastic bottle with a flip cap and you have to press the bottle to get the conditioner out. It comes in a slightly liquid-ish cream form (absolutely not a runny texture.) I take about a dollop and rub it between my palms and massage it all over my hair from the mid hair to the ends. Don’t use it much on the scalp though or it would make the hair look flat. I use this every day irrespective of having a shower or not and more specially when I have to go out or have some function to attend. It really tames my hair and all the frizzy fly-aways are smoothed out. I sometimes massage my hair with this as I would with oil and sleep on with it, and the next day, I have soft and tangle-free hair 🙂
It does make the hair look full bodied as opposed to hollow and brittle. I would say, this product is something like a moisturizer for hair. You don’t really know what it is doing at once, you gradually come to know the difference. It doesn’t hurt that it makes the hair smell nice. For people who get ready in a hurry or just air dry their hair, apply a dollop of this on the go and the hair will look decent enough as opposed to untidy. I avoid it on the scalp as it does make the scalp look greasy if applied more. This is perfect for people like me who have color treated, frizzy, unmanageable hair.
Pros of Living Proof No Frizz Leave In Conditioner:
- Absorbs easily in the hair.
- Great product with a soft mousse texture.
- Makes hair softer and tangle free.
- No harmful chemicals or silicones/sulfates.
- It won’t make your hair static like Livon (do you guys remember Livon?)
Cons of Living Proof No Frizz Leave In Conditioner:
- It might make hair greasy if applied generously.
- I won’t call it travel friendly.
- For ladies already having soft, silky, shiny hair, this is not for you (neither is my friendship :P)
I will definitely repurchase if I don’t find anything this good in drugstores.
