What can we do to improve our hair health?
egardless of how healthy your hair may seem, you should always use a product with heat protection before heat styling your hair. Making a physical barrier between a hot tool and your hair is key. You wouldn’t touch a hot styling tool with your bare hands, so why would you put a hot tool on your hair without protecting it first? Try the Restore Perfecting Spray from Living Proof for heat and UV protection.
Make sure to dry your hair completely before using a hot tool like a curling iron or a flat iron. Damaged hair tends to be dry and brittle, which can make your hair more sensitive and prone to breakage.
Start reading the ingredient list on every new haircare product you buy and start switching to products which do not contain silicones. Silicones tend to build up on the hair and although they make the hair soft and shiny temporarily, they have trade-offs like weighing your hair down and attracting dirt and oil which will weigh your hair down. At Living Proof we have the Healthy Hair Molecule that is an alternative to silicone, it repels dirt and oil and leaves hair smooth and shiny.
How important is a hair treatment?
We damage our hair by colouring or styling and these chemical and mechanical damages can seriously compromise the strength of our hair, making it look unhealthy and difficult to hold a style. Conditioners are great for everyday use, but most don’t have the intense strengthening that a treatment or mask does. Our Restore Repair Mask makes your hair 20x more resistant to breakage so you CAN do all those fun things (colouring and styling) without completely sacrificing the health of your hair.
Can we enjoy a haircare routine detox?
A clarifying shampoo is a deep cleansing shampoo that removes build-up of products, dirt, pollution and chlorine from the hair. Letting dirt build up can cause scalp irritation and leave hair looking dull. Products containing harsh chemicals can leave the hair weak and prone to damage which can in turn cause breakage. Try the Living Proof Triple Detox Shampoo to deeply cleanse the scalp (without stripping it of moisture) and get between the cuticles of the hair to remove all build-up of product, oil and dirt.
Is there a heat-free way to style hair for all those Zooms?
Give hair a break from heat and tension from constant styling and allow hair to naturally air-dry using a styling product like the Living Proof In-Shower Styler. It can be applied easily in the shower and doesn’t need to be rinsed out. Our patented thickening molecule deposits thickening dots between the hair fibres to create body and fullness while leaving behind resins that bind to the hair and flex when dried giving natural texture without the frizz.
Can we make split ends look less prominent without cutting?
The ends of your hair can be temporarily mended with a positive charge which seals them down to make them look mended and smooth. This, and Living Proof’s biomimetic technology can work over time to prevent further split ends in the hair.
How should we be using dry shampoo? How frequently and how much?
Whether you’re a busy mum, a gym-lover or you just want to cut down your morning routine, dry shampoo is a miracle for a quick hair refresh. It also has other great benefits for your hair including texture, volume, or hold.
Living Proof Perfect hair Day (PhD) Dry Shampoo’s is powered by a triple-action cleaning technology that cleans beyond an ordinary dry shampoo by absorbing and removing oil, sweat, and odour so that your hair looks, feels, and smells clean in between shampoos.
It should only be applied to hair that is completely dry and when you start to experience oiliness in the roots and the amount you use will depend on the level of oil, sweat and odour in the hair.
Hold the canister about 6-10 inches from the head, section hair thoroughly and then apply the product in a sweeping motion to the oily areas.
Wait 30 seconds for the powders to activate and cleanse.
Now remove the residue by massaging the hair and combing through with fingers or by brushing it out.
