Living Proof has always been one of my go to hair brands. My hair is horribly temperamental. Throughout my life I've struggled with frizz and flyaways, especially in the summer or when I would work out and sweat. I used to be a competitive baton twirler and dancer, and you don't even want to know what I had to do to my hair to keep it back. I owned stock in bobby pins and hairspray.
When Living Proof hit the scene I was well out of my glory years, but still had the same issues with frizz. I immediately purchased their No Frizz Shampoo and Conditioner as well as their Straight Making No Frizz Styling Cream for Medium to Thick Hair. The Gods sang and my hair was tamed. (Sidenote - a good drugstore dupe is the Tresemme Smooth & Silky, but when I know that I am going somewhere nice, or out and not just hanging around town or the house, I'll use the Living Proof system.)
Regardless if I use the Tresemme or Living Proof I ALWAYS use the Straight Making No Frizz Styling Cream. It's a necessity. So when Living Proof came out with the Straight SPRAY, I was all over it. I'm always looking for products that make my life easier. I have 2 active children, and especially with summer camp starting up I need to be able to do my hair quickly.
From the Sephora.com website:
What it is:
A styling spray that extends the life of straight styles.
What it does:
Straight creates sleek, smooth, shiny straight hair without the use of oils, resins or silicones. The lightweight formula can be reapplied to wet hair or dry hair extending your style for days. Straight won't build up, repels dirt, and helps to protect against heat styling.
What it is formulated WITHOUT:
- Synthetic Dyes
What else you need to know:
Straight contains aerosolized PolyfluoroEster, Living Proof's breakthrough molecule. It creates a weightless shield effectively preventing water from entering the hair shaft and disrupting your straight style. The result is straight hair that lasts for days.
The Living Proof Straight Spray DOES extend your style. My hair tends to get SUPER greasy by the next day, but with this product in it, it did not. It actually made my hair easier to style as well. As I dried my hair it stayed where I needed it to and fell nicely. I also didn't need to brush it as much. My hair was in MAJOR need of a haircut when I first started my trial of this product and the Straight Spray made it look amazing every time. I found that I still needed to use this product in conjunction with the Straight Making No Frizz Styling Cream, but not with the Shampoo and Conditioner. HUGE PLUS - it's not sticky at all, like you'd get from a regular hairspray.
The TRUE challenge test came when I shot this FOTD for a bachlorette party that I went to. Sweaty, hot, CLUBBIN' test. I'll spare you the end of the night shots ;) but lets just say I woke up the next morning and my hair still looked awesome.
I just love how perfect, and fine the Straight Spray had my hair looking. I'm probably over excited because I've never found a product that will tame my crazy Italian girl hair lol (PSA time - that GORGEOUS hair pin I'm wearing was made by Tracey at GingerKitty Designs using China Glaze Atlantis nail polish!)
Living Proof Straight Spray retails for $17 (for the travel size) to $29 and you can pick it up at Sephora.
