Best Selling: Living Proof Perfect hair Day (PhD) Dry Shampoo

Living Proof Perfect hair Day (PhD) Dry Shampoo C$22

I have tried a few dry shampoos over the years. Some of them have left my hair oily. My hair isn’t oily. It’s normal. Or, my scalp dry. I didn’t feel it was really doing the trick. I was given a sample of this product from Sephora the other day. Though I’d try another dry shampoo, not knowing what to expect, really. Even though, i have not been disappointed by this co-created line by Jennifer Aniston. This dry shampoo, does not dry my scalp, nor does it make my hair or scalp oily. It’s luxurious and prestigious. I encourage you to give it a try. Dry shampoo is powder texture product. Powder absorbs oil, so if you scalp is dry, I wouldn’t recommend using any dry shampoo. If your hair is normal, that’s entirely up to you. If your scalp and hair is oily, definitely use a dry shampoo. Wash your hair in the morning, and by late-afternoon spray this formula into your hair to give it a pick-me-up. It will restore your style to how it was in the morning after you’ve styled it. Dry shampoo is good for in between wet washes. So, it does clean your hair, even though it’s powder-based. 

Additional Information:

Living Proof Perfect Hair Day Dry Shampoo contains fast-absorbing powders that soak up oil and sweat. Great for all hair types and colors, a patented OFPMA molecule reduces the surface friction on hair—leaving virtually no visible residue or powdery build-up—making it easy to remove the powder. Odor neutralizers eliminate unwanted smells, and a time-release fragrance releases a light, refreshing, long-lasting scent.

DOES NOT CONTAIN parabens, sulfates, phthalates

What else you need to know:
See white residue? A little residue that can be easily removed is expected (that’s the cleaning in the works). If you experience more than that, make sure you shake the can and hold it farther from your head. Use a bristle brush and/or blow dryer to remove visible powders.

Top 10 Dry Shampoos to Try!

Dry shampoo typically contains powder to absorb oil, which re-stores your hair style. It is to be used in between wet shampooings, as well as those who have oily hair. If you do have oily hair, then I would recommend you using dry shampoos by late afternoon to re-store your style.

Gotta Have that Blow-Out!

Nancy Sinatra 1960 – The ultimate hair muse. She knows a thing or two about a blow out, or at least how to rock one. 

My hair as you may know by now is curly. I use the blowout to straighten my hair. My hair is super-thick, so I have to use a hair primer and a volumizing hair styler. I like the look of just stepping out of the salon hair look, therefore, I like taking my time to do my hair. I have lots of body, with very heavy locks that weigh the hair down, causing my roots to be flat. Not a good look. My roots need to match the body of my  hair. Also, a round brush helps to. Use a small round brush for short hair, and a large round brush for long hair. If you don’t have a medium size round brush for medium length hair, then use a large round brush.  I have been giving myself a blow-out since I was teen. It’s just evolved over the years. Below are my tips to how I create my blow-out, that I have received compliments on. I still do. 

Tools You’ll Need:



main product

Living Proof Perfect hair Day (PhD) 5-in-1 styling treatment 

2 oz $15

4 oz $27

main product

Living Proof prime style extender cream 

2 oz $12

5 oz $20

Those are my go-to products, plus Aveeda Phomollient, as well as this one from Living Proof. I’m addicted to Living Proof at the moment, can you tell. 😉

Living Proof blowout styling & finishing spray

1.7 oz $14

5 oz $24

A faster, easier way to get a salon-worthy blowout yourself. Powered by our breakthrough Thermal Speed-Shaping Technology, Blowout:

  • Reduces the amount of brush work needed to shape your style
  • Locks in your blowout all day
  • Creates optimal level of grip with flexible hold for brush detailing to hold and shape your style
  • Provides heat protection up to 450° F
  • Can be used alone or layered with your favorite leave-on conditioners and stylers
  • Can be used on second-day hair or to touch-up as a finish step

As long as you have a volumizing hair styling product, plus hydrant to hydrate your hair, alcohol-free hair spray to keep it in place, and so your locks aren’t stiff. I don’t use hair-spray. With my primer in my mane, my hair surprisingly stays in place. Those of you who have very, very thick hair; enough hair for three heads, as my stylist as told me once, then you really ought to try primer. It stays in place in through the rain 

When your hair is damp apply your hair styling products. Doesn’t matter which order. Just as long as it’s applied when damp. 

Section your hair with section clips (GOODY), after your prepped your (with styling products). Begin your blow-out.




Because, I like my hair to have a flip out, my brush is always on top of the hair, except when I’m creating volume on my roots, then the brush is under my hair. I create volume first, then work on flipping my hair out. 

Hair Tip: If you want height on your roots, make sure your round brush goes right up to the ceiling. With the brush under your sectioned stripped hair.

Dry Shampoo: What is it?

Dry shampoo mainly consist of powder, which makes it excellent to use in between wet washing your hair, or if you have oily hair.

Let’s begin with the former first. In between wet washing your hair, are we? Well, dry shampoo does cleanse the hair, absorbs oil; hense powder absorbs oil, however it isn’t a deep clean like wet washing. Dry shampoo retains your hair style so it doesn’t go flat, or it brings your hair style back to life. Depending on when you apply the dry shampoo. 

As for the latter, when you have oily hair, normally in the late afternoon you will want to use the restroom, spray the dry shampoo into your hair to control the oil. It brings hair back to life. Hair style has be retrieved. Voila. Who knew your style went flat? No one.

Haircare I Swear By!

These are my haircare products I cannot live without. I really the formula never changes. I love them just the way they are. If you don’t know by now, I have high standards in everything, this transcends to my exterior, as well. So, I’m particular with everything, really. Take a peek at my must haves.


Phomollient™ Styling Foam

Aveda phomollient™ styling foam $20

I use this styling foam as a mouse. It’s non-sticky. For those of you who have heavy hair, this makes your hair feel light and airy. When my hair was super-long, this was my go-to product, so I would feel like I have light, airy type hair. When, I’m not using this styling foam, I’m using Living Proof 5-in-1 Styling Treatment (below). It does the same thing, plus more. 


I have tried and love every single one of these perfect hair days (phd) products. Living Proof is co-founded by Jennifer Aniston.

main product

Living Proof Perfect Hair Day (phd) 5-in-1 styling treatment $15-$27


main product

Living Proof prime style extender cream $12-$59

Just like priming my face before makeup application to ensure longer makeup application, I like to prime my hair before styling it. It has become a must for me. 

I don’t really use hair products in my hair too often. It’s more about how I can maintain my hairstyle than anything else, really. Because, my hair is heavy (my hair is curly, but fine and very thick and normal), any hair style doesn’t stay in place. It falls flat. It isn’t a question of if, it’s a question of when. 


Nutritious Mask <br>with Almond <br>and Apricot Kernel Oil

Nutritious Mask with Almond and Apricot Kernel Oil

I like to use almond oil/butter, anything almond in the winter, and olive in the spring/summer. Olive oil has excellent hydrating benefits. Almond is excellent in delivering moisture so for dryness. 

There are more hair care products I really like. These are my go-to products.
