The Results of the Living Proof Challenge

Ashley from Two Peas in a Prada shares the results of the Living Proof 7 day no heat hair challenge.

 

I’m back with part two of Living Proof‘s air-dry challenge. If you read this post, I agreed to take a 7 day no-heat challenge using Living Proof’s brand new PhD In-Shower Styler. I couldn’t believe the results! Taking the time off blow-drying, curling and straightening my hair was actually a relief. It took a lot of stress out of my week, and saved me so much time!

I mentioned before that I was super lazy with my hair, I normally just have it up in a bun during the week — that was mostly because I thought my hair didn’t look cute just air dried. So instead of taking the time to do it, I just pulled it up. The most important thing I learned during this challenge is: I can make air dry styles work for my hair.

This product is a game changer. I’m not sure if you can tell from the photos, but the texture of my hair improved a lot in just 7 days! It wasn’t as piecey or raggedy looking! My hair naturally has a slight wave, but not enough to be able to achieve that beachy look I am always striving for! After using this product for a week, I was finally able to try out some air-dried styles that I actually liked!

I have read so many articles talking about how that Victoria’s Secret perfectly curled and amped up volume style is out. I have noticed recently that people are going for a more toned down version of this. After I applied the PhD In-Shower Styler, I simply let my hair air-dry and scrunched it a few times (you can see in the photos below that my hair is still a little wet on the bottom). It looked “done” without being too much, and there was definitely more noticeable volume than what is usually in my hair.

Here is a refresher about the product. What it is: An innovative styler that is applied in the shower after washing and then lightly rinse, towel dry, scrunch and let it air dry – leaving behind only what you need to create beautiful air-dried styles. It features Living Proof’s Thickening Molecule (PBAE) (yes they’ve created their own molecule – hello science!) and lightweight conditioners, which deliver:

  • enhanced natural texture
  • body
  • softness
  • shine

And the best part is, it’s sulfate and silicone free!

I absolutely loved using this product, especially in tandem with the PhD Shampoo and Conditioner. It all worked so well together and shaved hours off of my beauty routine! I leave for Italy tomorrow, and instead of packing my bulky blow dryer, I am simply bringing this. This not only will allow me more time to soak up the Italian sun, but will also free up some space in my suitcase in case I go shopping (let’s get real, we all know I will).

I also tried letting my hair air dry without scrunching it up, and loosely braiding my hair when it was about halfway dry! It helped give me those effortless loose waves I had been craving. You can also try styles like parting your hair in the middle and pulling your hair up in a bun on either side of your head while it dries to help give that beachy wave and some volume to your hair. I love the versatility of this product. Plus, it really is keeping my hair so much healthier! I am so happy I participated in this challenge!
