It’s not me, it’s you: Review of Living Proof No Frizz

Living Proof is a hair care line that promises to offer something different than the silicone and oil-reliant products currently flooding the hair care market. In that department, they deliver. The products contain a unique molecule that is supposed to nourish hair without building up or weighing hair down.

After my first experience with the line, I wasn’t pleased, but thought maybe the product wasn’t right for my hair type. I ordered up the trial pack of frizz (pronounced “no frizz”) and waited by my mailbox for three days, dreaming of soft, bouncy, frizz-free curls.

When the package arrived, I immediately tried the no frizz shampoo, conditioner, leave-in, and nourishing style cream. I carefully diffused, while imagining the glorious crown of ringlets that would be framing my noggin.

I flipped my hair upright and discovered, to my horror, that I was in middle school all over again. My hair fluffed up like cotton candy and lost almost all the curl. Not quite ready to give up, I ran a little more of the styling cream through, which took out a bit of the frizz. It was still pretty bad by my standards, but I did leave it down for the rest of the day.

I tried the line once more and added gel for definition and ended up with frizzy, yet curly, dull locks. I ended up running more gel through my dry hair (something I only do when putting it up in a bun) which took down some frizz, only to poof back up later in the day. Living proof may not rely on silicones, but there is absolutely a discernible feeling of product on my hair. A product which weighs my hair down, reduces curl, and increases frizz.

Eff you, living proof. It’s not me, it’s definitely you.
