I have previously raved about my love for Living Proof hair products, namely that they have helped me wash my hair less (the bane of my existence). And now, I’d like to talk about another one of their products that has been an absolute lifesaver in helping me achieve my goals to wash my hair less often. I’m talking about the Living Proof Perfect Hair Day Heat Styling Spray, aka the product that has revolutionized my hair routine.
Full disclaimer before we proceed: I am *NOT* sponsored by Living Proof and I am not getting paid to say this. I have genuinely loved Living Proof products for years and will continue to purchase them with my own money (although if the PR team from Living Proof is reading this, can you please hook a girl up? Thank you so much!).
Heat sprays are an essential product in my haircare routine because I straighten my hair every day. I have naturally thick, wavy hair and usually style my blunt bob straight. Previously, I was using the Tresemme Keratin Smooth Heat Spray, which only costs $6 and can be found at the drugstore. What I liked most about it was that the keratin tamed my frizzy hair, especially in humidity. The only drawback was that I felt that it made my hair greasy—especially once I got down toward the end of the bottle.
If we also rewind a few years ago, I want to recall that I used to use the Living Proof Straight Spray (RIP!), which was a godsend because it was a heat protectant and was targeted for straight hairstyles. Unfortunately, that was discontinued. But then to my surprise, Living Proof released this Perfect Hair Day Heat Styling Spray.
The main reason why I love this heat spray is it doubles up as a hair perfume for me. I have never been a fan of hair perfumes because I always thought it was overkill to use a perfume scent on your hair. Living Proof products notoriously smell clean and fresh (which is obviously what I want my hair to smell like when I haven’t washed it!), so what I do is spray it directly onto my day 4 unwashed hair and run my flat iron through it, then follow up with a generous spritz of Living Proof Dry Shampoo in my roots, just for good measure. This heat spray also seems to absorb oil and mattify my hair, so it’s a great first step to ensure the dry shampoo will work and my hair will not look greasy.
Key ingredients in this product include a Lightweight Emollient Blend, which is said to keep hair smooth and shiny; a Cationic Blend to control static and condition your locks; and Living Proof’s patented hair molecule OFPMA, which keeps tresses smooth and cleaner for longer. Plus, all Living Proof products are formulated without sulfates, SLS and SLES, parabens, formaldehydes, phthalates, and mineral oil, and is vegan and cruelty-free.
This heat spray has been the secret to my success when I’ve reached day 4 of not washing my hair. The 5.5-ounce bottle retails for $28 at Sephora, and probably the only downfall of that is I can’t bring it with me when I travel, so Living Proof, can you please release a TSA-approved size? Thank you in advance.
