At Status Salon, we’re committed to offering our clients not just a hairstyle, but a transformative experience. A crucial part of this promise is the selection of products we use and recommend. Today, we’re sharing our professional take on a product that has been making waves in the haircare industry: the Living Proof PhD (Perfect hair Day) Shampoo.

What is Living Proof PhD Shampoo?

Living Proof PhD Shampoo is marketed as a breakthrough formula that promises to deliver a perfect hair day every day. The shampoo claims to help users achieve the five key benefits for a healthy hair profile: smoothness, volume, conditioning, strength, and polish. Its patented Healthy Hair Molecule (OFPMA) is designed to provide cleanliness and manageability without the hair weighing down.

Our Salon’s Experience with Living Proof PhD Shampoo

The Look and Feel

First impressions count, and Living Proof PhD Shampoo makes a good one with its sleek, minimalist packaging that’s both modern and chic. The shampoo itself has a creamy texture and a pleasant, light scent that doesn’t overwhelm the senses.

Application and Efficacy

As we worked the product through our clients’ hair, the shampoo lathered nicely and rinsed out easily. Our stylists noted that even a small amount seemed to go a long way in cleaning and hydrating the hair without stripping it of its natural oils.

Post-Wash Results

After drying, the most immediate result we noticed was the hair’s smoothness and manageability. Clients with frizz issues saw a significant reduction in flyaways, which was maintained even in high humidity environments. Additionally, the hair displayed a notable shine and felt stronger to the touch.

Long-Term Benefits

With continued use, many clients reported that their hair felt cleaner for longer periods of time. The shampoo’s lightweight formula didn’t build up, and the hair maintained its volume without sacrificing softness or shine. It was also encouraging to see improved hair health in clients who used the shampoo regularly, suggesting that its claims of conditioning and strengthening properties hold true.

Pros vs. Cons
