I took the Living Proof Challenge. Here’s what I learned about my hair. 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.
What I Learned About My Hair on the Living Proof Challenge
So, it’s done.
5 weeks of using the new Living Proof PhD product collection, and I’ve definitely am loving the changes with my hair. What I learned on this journey has been “hair raising”…in the literal sense. It’s confession time folks, and I’m spilling the beans on all that I have learned after my Living Proof Challenge.
Here’s what my hair looked like before I took this challenge. You may say, that really doesn’t look bad! But if you look closer, you’ll notice how oily my roots are already after just washing yesterday. You’ll also notice some frizz and a hair kinking problem on the left side (always an issue) thanks to our lovely Florida weather.
I wouldn’t call this a Perfect Hair Day by any means.
Meet my hair’s new best friends
If you haven’t met them yet, make sure to give the new Living Proof PhD collection a high five. This trio of hair products is every mom’s dream! Shampoo, Conditioner and Styling, the new Living Proof PhD (Perfect hair Day) line provides the BEST hair care results for that “Perfect Hair Day” (aka Jennifer Aniston Hair).
Volume, Smoothness, Conditioning, Strength and Polish are all combined to give you lasting results every mom wants without the hard work. Using the PhD Shampoo and Conditioner in the place of your normal hair care routine, this dynamic duo keeps your hair cleaner for longer with sulfate-free, oil-free and silicone-free ingredients. Then just follow up with the 5-in-1 Styling Treatment to finish your look.
My hair doesn’t need to be washed every day
Prior to this challenge, I would wash my hair everyday. I know, gross. I had no idea how much I was hurting my hair and my scalp by washing it everyday. Stripping my hair of it’s natural oils, a dry flaky scalp, and well, limp hair.
Now with Living Proof PhD, I can go 2 days, 3 days, even as long as 4 days without washing. It’s pretty amazing.
A little bit goes a LONG way
I know what you’re thinking. Chemical free shampoo means that you won’t get that wonderful foamy lather that you get with other products, so you’re constantly running out. I definitely thought that too. But with the new Living Proof PhD Shampoo, you can have chemical free AND a rich lather too!
In fact, 5 weeks in, I am only halfway through my bottle of shampoo. With longer times between washings and only a quarter size amount of shampoo needed to get through my long locks, I have the best of both worlds! Chemical free and rich lather do go together!
Follow up with a small amount of Living Proof PhD Conditioner and your hair is ready for a great day. Did you notice I said small amount of conditioner too? You don’t need as much conditioner either to get through this long hair. That was really impressive!
No more greasy hair
My hair would build up with grease so quickly, I actually would avoid touching my hair throughout the day as much as possible. I would reach my hand back to comb through my head and freeze as I stifle myself into a stretch pose instead.
So awkward, I know.
I would try to hide my oily roots with creative headbands and weird mom updos. But now, I can comb my fingers through my hair…often. Living Proof
Styling is a breeze
Not only is my hair healthier, but because it’s also shiny, sleek, and faster to style. I can now go from shower to out the door in minutes. Just throw in a small amount of the new Living Proof PhD 5-in-1 Styling Treatment to my damp hair and blow dry. Instant sleek Asian hair look….and with volume! I never would have thought natural bounce and volume would be possible with hair care products, especially with my super straight Asian hair. But my hair now looks fuller and feels thicker.
Healthy hair is…
Confession, I’ve actually never used high quality hair care products before this Living Proof challenge. Sulfate-free, oil-free and silicone-free didn’t live in my vocabulary. Before this challenge, I would have told you that I could do just fine with my $0.99 bottle of shampoo. Who needs expensive hair care?
But I was wrong, completely wrong.
I see now Living Proof PhD now gives me health that extends beyond hair. My scalp is healthier. My confidence has risen. I am happier.
Mom hair doesn’t have to be labeled as such
My greasy messy bun look is a thing of the past. I don’t have to hide my oily roots anymore. I don’t have to look like I’ve given up. I can go about my busy day with a smile, my head held high, and well…perfect hair.
Thanks to the Living Proof PhD collection and this amazing hair experience, I’ve learned so much about hair, confidence and why quality hair care is so important. I’m sticking with Living Proof PhD. It’s amazing and my hair has never been happier. Want to see how to get Jennifer Aniston hair? Check out my post HERE.

I get keratin treatments, so I can only use certain things. I will have to ask my stylist if I can use this.
Amber C. says
I’ve recently tried Living Proof and I LOVED it! Amazing the difference I seen in my hair!
Betsy Mitchell says
I haven’t tried Living Proof yet but it looks like a great product. I have LOTS of hair and it’s down to the middle of my back. I only wash it a couple times a week because it’s such a hassle.
Liz Mays says
That is visible proof indeed. Your hair looks stunning, and I’ve been hearing so many people say the same thing about the Living Proof line.
Your hair looks amazing after the challenge. I really need to try out this line of hair products.
You have beautiful hair! Mine tends to get oily, and I’m anxious to try these products. I already skip a day washing and would love to skip even more!
Catherine A says
This sounds like a great product your hair looks great. I will have to give it a try.
Wow what a beautiful shot of both but after? Is amazing! How cool what a neat challenge and product!
Ann Bacciaglia says
Wow your hair looks amazing. I will have to try this product out. My hair has been very dry lately. I am sure this could help.
What a difference! You look great before, but you can see more body and shine in the after photos! I think I need some Living Proof too!
Your hair does look great. I wash my hair almost daily and always have… and I know it’s bad to do it, but it’s SO hard to break that habit. Maybe this would help.
I’d like to try this but not sure how it would work on my very curly hair. I am selective about the shampoos I use and can totally tell the difference between the cheap stuff and the better brands now.
Carly Anderson says
Wow, you can definitely tell the different after the Living Proof challenge. Your hair look so much better! I’m glad it worked for you.
Your hair looks awesome! You can really tell a difference. I’d never heard of Living Proof, but I’ll have to check it out!
Are you still using LivingProof? Did you go through a sort of oily detox as your natural oils started to balance out. ?
Yes, I definitely had a period of time when my oily hair got a reboot. When things balanced out (took about 2 weeks), my hair was so much healthier
Amie Matthews says
I do not want to freak out the folks who only skim read these comments looking only for key words to jump out, but I can’t find an honest answer anywhere so far. It’s the internet. Who knows what to believe. I have trusted your reviews in the past with excellent results so I’m hoping you’ll be able to help.
I purchased this product a few days ago after hearing about it and then reading your blog. I have a similar (much worse I’m sure) issue with oily hair and have tried so many things. After telling a friend she informs me that “many women have experienced hair loss after using this product over time”. The internet has some talk along the same vein and other talk of people that have used it for years and never even mention that dreaded phrase “hair loss”! I also suffer (not an exaggeration;) with very fine and somewhat thin hair, so just the idea that it might possibly end in that horror of a scenario is terrifying for me personally. I don’t have hair to spare. Hopefully you’re still checking this review and have some news for me be it good or bad.
Thanks a bunch.
