I play with so many products and love them, I am a product junkie at all but certain Living Proof Products have remained constant staples and holy grails in my routines for years now. Their products are high quality and unique. The brand was developed by MIT scientists and beauty experts who developed and patented new molecules for their hair care line! The products never have any sulfates, silicones, or oils and are all safe for color treated and chemically treated hair. Although they don't have a specific "curly hair" line, myself as well as several friends find their products to perform extremely well on all our varieties of curls and waves. The products all have a pleasant, very light clean smell that is not offensive at all.
I will be reviewing a lot of the Living Proof products in categories in a series of articles. Here are some of my favorites from the Restore Line, which is my personal favorite from the brand. If you have hair that needs some sort of repair this is the line for you!
All of the Living Proof products contain the patented molecule OFPMA which create an thin, invisible shield around every hair strand. With this shield, "hair becomes healthier over time, hair is strengthened and protected from daily assaults like brushing and washing, hair balances the flow of moisture in and out of strands, so damaging moisture flux is controlled, hair fights off humidity, so frizz is stopped in its tracks, hair repels oil and dirt so it stays cleaner, longer and hair texture is polished into a smooth, glossy lustre" according to livingproof.com
The Restore Line
What Living Proof says: For dry and damaged hair. This line as a whole is said to help keep the hair cleaner longer and help break the cycle of damage. The Restore technology is clinically proven to make hair 20x stronger in just 14 days. And the longer you use it, the healthier your hair gets. The Restore line smoothes, corrects and protects from root-to-tip, making a damaged cuticle act like new. Hair is shinier, softer and stronger. Like virgin hair - never colored, heat styled or chemically processed.
What I say: This is my favorite line by Living Proof and where a lot of my holy grails live. My hair is dry and damaged and some of these products help to save it. As a whole the line truly helps my color treated hair remain healthy, soft and grow nice and long.
