#YourBestHair with Living Proof

My hair is "my thing", y'all. It's that one part of my body that makes me feel most beautiful, with or without make-up or that chic pair of shoes. I've colored my hair too many times to count and I've had a variety of lengths, but for the past 3 years my bob with messy waves has been my go-to style. It makes me feel like "me" and is what I get complimented the most on. As I get older, I realize the importance of using good hair care products to keep my hair looking beautiful, and most importantly, healthy. {read on after the jump!}

I've tried more hair care products than I can count and the majority that I've tried have just been "OK" in terms of delivering the results that I want. I first read about Living Proof earlier this year, and the moment I read the "Science" behind their brand, I was more than intrigued. Living Proof is all about delivering the results that we crave, because let's face it, when we purchase a beauty product we expect to see results and the results that we're promised. Living Proof scientists invent, synthesize, analyze and patent their beauty products to ensure that they perform the very best. They've discovered two superior ways of caring for hair: 1.) OFPMA -- a bulletproof molecule that is better than any conventional technology that exists (like silicone and oils). It makes hair healthier over time, it strengthens and protects the hair from daily brushing and washing, it balances moisture, protects against humidity and frizz, keeps hair clean by repelling dirt and oil, and polishes hair making it smooth and shiny. 2.) PBAE -- a tiny molecule that creates a micropattern of thickening dots on each strand, making even fine and thin hair behave like full, thick and textured hair. Most hair products that claim to make flat hair full and thick use chemicals that damage the hair or use glue-like resins that make hair feel stiff and unnatural. PBAE creates friction and space without damaging the hair. The thickening dots have endurance, so they don't break down even when you run your fingers through your hair. And the best part? The fullness is long lasting!

Living Proof has a convenient hair product selector tool that makes it super easy to get customized products that will work the very best for your hair. It's like having a consultation with a hair care specialist without having to leave your house! Genius, right?! There's shampoos + conditioners, stylers + finishes, and treatments + leave-ins that will help you achieve your very best hair!

The Living Proof hair product selector tool recommended these products for my hair: full shampoo, restore conditioner, Perfect hair Day night cap overnight perfector, Perfect Hair Day 5-in-1 styling treatment, and blowout.

The Living Proof hair product selector tool also recommended these products for my hair: prime style extender, Perfect hair Day dry shampoo, frizz humidity shield, and instant texture mist. Though my hair is quite thick (I have a LOT of hair), my hair strands are quite thin, so on most days my hair looks flat. My hair has a natural wave to it, so if I don't use smoothing products it will tend to get frizzy. Also, let's not forget that I live in Florida where it's hot and humid most of the year, so I definitely need a product to help fight humidity and frizz. It's especially important for me to have products that will help keep my hair healthy and fight against damage with coloring it every 4-6 weeks. Lastly, I desperately needed products that would help me achieve my favorite wavy style and to keep it that way throughout the day, without falling flat.

Y'all, I could not get over how QUICK this full shampoo worked on my hair. I am not one to boast about a product if it doesn't do what it says it does and I was seriously amazed how my hair felt while I was shampooing it. As soon as I rinsed the shampoo from my hair it instantly felt thicker -- even wet! I couldn't believe it! I have never felt a result like that from using thickening or volume shampoos in the past.

The restore conditioner did exactly what I expected it to. It made my hair feel silky soft and hydrated. Oh and I can't believe I haven't already mentioned this yet, but every one of the Living Proof products smell AMAZING! Seriously so so good! My hair smelled clean and fresh, and like a sweet bouquet of flowers the entire day. It was over-powering either.

At first I was worried that my hair might end up greasy and weighed down after using all 3 of these styling products, but honestly my hair felt awesome after blow drying it! The Perfect hair Day 5-in-1 styling treatment smoothes, volumizes, conditions, strengthens and polishes hair. This is a product I can see myself using daily. The prime style extender does exactly what it says. It extends the style 2x longer. This is a must for days when I need to make sure my hairstyle lasts all day long. The blowout can be applied to damp or dry hair and it's the perfect spray to help you achieve a salon-worthy blow-out. After blow drying my hair felt thick, smooth, frizz-free and clean, but still had texture. I was really pleased with the fullness and body my hair had. Usually when I blow it out it is pin straight and flat.

Though I didn't take pictures, later on in the day I curled my hair with loose waves. The next morning, this is what my hair looked like BEFORE doing anything to it. I didn't brush it or add any products. I only did my makeup.

My hair still had great volume, even after sleeping on it. It still felt nice and clean, but had great texture. It wasn't oily either, which is a problem I tend to have (even after day 1 of washing my hair).

This Perfect hair Day dry shampoo is a dream, y'all. It's better than any dry shampoo I've tried because this dry shampoo really CLEANS your hair, rather than just masking oil. As you can see, it also gives great volume, I really could have stopped here (without styling any further), but I wanted to show you what the other products do, as well as how I style my hair to achieve my beachy waves (I know y'all have been asking for awhile).

After curling my hair I spritz it with the instant texture mist, which can be used on damp or dry hair. After spraying, I scrunch and tousle my hair. Then I use a smooth and shine brush to break up my waves a bit.

The final step is the frizz humidity shield. This product prevents against frizz and humidity, which, as I stated above, is a must-have for this FL girl!

I was more than stoked with the results of my hair after using these styling products. My hair had more fullness and volume than it usually does and it was toucheable and soft (not sticky or crunchy).

My fave Living Proof product of the bunch is definitely the Perfect hair Day night cap overnight perfector. It's seriously amazing, y'all! Think of it has a magic potion for your hair -- an instant revitalizer! It's better than any hair mask or leave-in conditioner that I've ever tried. I showered at night, shampooing my hair, and then applying the night cap overnight perfector to my damp hair. I slept on it the entire night and woke up to soft and silky hair, that was vibrant and maneagable. It even had fullness and volume! This is what it looked like when I woke up. These shots were taken after I woke up -- no further products used, not even a brush!

Living Proof definitely helped me achieve my best hair. The results I achieved are "Living Proof" that these products really do work and it's all in the science. So, what do y'all think of my results, and have you ever tried Living Proof before? I would love to hear your thoughts!
