Can overwhelm hair; A little goes a long way
I purchased this product along with the shampoo and conditioner of the same brand to manage my dry, somewhat frizzy and damaged hair. When I used all three products as directed the result was my hair looked and felt weighed down, my natural curls relaxed, my hair still dry and somewhat frizzy, and there was little shine.There were a few variations I tried before getting an acceptable result. I used the shampoo and conditioner, then another brand of product after towel drying. My hair was shiny, the natural curls seemed unaffected, but there was some frizz remaining.The best results for me were when I used my normal shampoo and conditioner, then applied this product sparingly (the directions say to “coat the hair” – too much). My hair did not feel or appear weighed down. It was shiny, the curls were unaffected, and there was no frizz.Based on these experiments I’d recommend all 3 products (shampoo, conditioner, styling cream) for those with severely damaged, dry, and frizzy hair. Folks who have some dryness with frizz and want to preserve curls, I’d suggest just using this product alone without making a change to the shampoo/conditioner.So, not a perfect product, but it’s possible to get desired results with some experimentation.Best of luck! 🙂
Did not work for me
Over the years I’ve tried many styling products to tame frizz and get the “lush curls” look. I started out with silicone based products but didn’t like those so I kept trying different things without it. I finally found a combination that works well but am always open to trying new products so I decided to give this line a try. I bought the starter kit that has shampoo, conditioner, this product, and the leave in conditioner and used them all together to get a good idea of how well the products work. Although it’s better than nothing, it did not tame the frizz very well and did nothing in particular to make my hair look good. Disappointing, especially for such an expensive product. However, it’s great that inventors are always developing new products because everyone’s hair is different. It does have nice citrusy fragrance.For those who are interested in what does work for me: I use any inexpensive shampoo and conditioner; I notice little difference in those so why pay more. For styling, I use Garnier Fructis Pure Clean Smoothing Cream. Then my secret weapon is to follow that with Palmer’s Coconut Oil Formula Hair Conditioner, a leave-in dressing which leaves my hairdo looking shiny and lush. The key for the latter us to use just a very small amount and only apply to dry hair. Both are far less expensive and do a better job on my hair.
Not the best styling cream
I love the Living Proof styling cream, but I realize the one for straight styles is the one I like best. This cream has a strong (and not pleasant) scent, and it’s very sticky and drying. The cream for straight hair is lighter scented and has a creamy, hydrating consistency. I tend to dislike styling gels, and this cream seems like a hybrid between a gel and a cream. If you like a styling gel, this might work for you. For me, having hair products that hydrate my hair is really important. I am returning this item since it just doesn’t work for me.
Unlike most of the people who seem to reach for this product, I have fine, straight, hair … a lot of it. This works really great for controlling frizz on humid days. It keeps your hair under control without looking greasy. I do tend to notice that my hair feels a bit heavier with this product in, so if you’re someone who works to get a lot of volume in your hair, this might not be the best – but for controlling frizz I haven’t found anything better.
Does exactly what it says. Great!!!
Does exactly what it says. Great!!!I am blown away. Been looking for the trifecta of Living Proof shampoo / conditioner / styling creme for years and years, spent so much money on so many products that don’t work or kind of work but never been satisfied. Bought the sample of No Frizz by Living Proof and after one use am so glad I did. Got a compliment on my hair for the first time in forever. Makes the great cut I got finally gets its break without the frizz and fluffiness muddling it up. Thank you!!!
