Lather, rinse, repeat. That's all there is to it right? Wrong. When it comes to a good shampoo wash it’s all about what's inside those bottles that live in our showers and how you maintain your luscious locks in between washes. Many girls also try to use hair glazes and glosses to achieve the perfect shiny, healthy look but proper washing and care can produce the exact same results and I'll tell you how.
My secret weapon is: Living Proof. I fell head over heels with Living Proof when I first started getting my blowouts from my TousIed girls. I’m also super in love with the way alllll the products smell. Is that weird? Every time I’d walk out of there I'd leave feeling like Cindy Crawford circa the 1990’s— and the best part about it was that I could keep rocking the look for a few days afterward. I eventually purchased the Living Proof recipe for myself so I could achieve the lucious mane at home on my own and I quickly found out that I could still achieve my Cindy look with ease. I haven't looked back since.
I rounded up for you my go-to, everyday Living Proof products that I use to cleanse, style, and extend the wash life of my hair each week! I’m absolutely in love with each product and have definitely seen incredible results from each one.
Remember in Kiss It Better when we told you that sulfates are killer on your skin. Same goes for your hair. If your current shampoo has sulfates in it, throw it away immediately. In an attempt to clean your hair better it only strips all the good oils from your scalp therefore overproducing the oils. In other words, you’re washing your hair way more than you actually need to. The less you wash your hair the better. Personally, I can’t go too long, but I’ve seen a few other girls go weeks! If you keep your washes to a minimum you’d be surprised how long you can make one bottle last and then $28 doesn’t seem so bad. That’s the best part about all of the Living Proof products! No other product has kept my hair cleaner, longer and the natural shine it gives it is amaze.
What you’re really paying for in the No Frizz products is their patented Healthy Hair Molecule (OFPMA) which they claim is a HUGE breakthrough in anti-frizz technology. Who would’ve ever thought about science and beauty combining forces to give you to-die-for hair!?
99.999% of the time I let my hair air dry so as soon as I get out of the shower I spray this baby in and comb it through to combat those annoying little frizzes I always seem to encounter. It also works to prep your hair before applying heat.
The other 0.001% of the time when I DO style my hair with heat I never go in without using the next three products. Each one is formulated to keep your hairstyles last longer in between washes and rinses so you don’t cause as much damage to your beautiful tresses. This product also uses the Healthy Hair Molecule (OFPMA) to create a weightless shield that repels all kinds of oils and dirt. It’s so nice and light that other products can be layered on top of it without weighing down your hair or creating any nasty gunk. It’s like it’s not even there.
Cheap and basic hairspray’s make your hair feel crunchy and gross. Not this baby, right here. You can use this hairspray to: set, style or finish. When I use it I spray it all throughout my hair just after blow drying, but BEFORE curling or straightening. It will hold my desired structure all day, and ,again, without any build up. I also spray it one last time after I’ve completed my hair for some extra hold and it gets the job done.
This is my final touch before leaving the house, whether I’ve air dried my hair or I’ve styled it. Now this may sound kinda dumb after I’ve told you a thousand times already how all these products make your hair look so clean and shiny, but their texture spray styles your hair to look a little lived in. It gives you that perfect messy, but cute look. Living Proof’s patent Volumizing Molecule (PBAE) allows for this product to last for daaaayyyyssss (48 hours to be exact) and has zero trade offs (no stiff hair, no sticky hair, no dull hair, and for sure no dirtying hair).
Now, I haven’t had any use for this product yet because of how awesome all the other stuff I use but as I was researching on the Living Proof website I came across how their R&D team made this product, and I was very intrigued so I ordered it. They claim it’s different than any other dry shampoo out there because it doesn’t have a white mist and it doesn’t leave any sort of residue on your scalp. I’ll let you ladies know how it works out as soon as I test it for myself.
When it comes down to the total cost of everything it might seem like a lot just for hair, but I’m a firm believer in you pay for what you get. Especially when it comes to my hair because it’s one of the first things that people notice about your appearance, so I always gotta keep it lookin’ fresh.
