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. Complete. 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.
It doesn’t need to be washed everyday
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!
I can run my hands through my hair again
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 haircare 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 haircare 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 haircare 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.
