Haircare meets scientific flair at Living Proof, the cult line from the US that puts manes under the microscope.

Founded in 2005 by editorial hairstylists Mitch DeRosa and Ward Stegerhoek, the pair enlisted a wide-ranging team of elite scientists from the prestigious MIT University and set about creating truly innovative beauty that puts science at the forefront and delivers products that do precisely what they say on the packaging (imagine that!).

The goal was a lofty one: to bring together cutting-edge science and clinical technology, and forge never-before-seen solutions to the (very annoying!) problems of hair frizz, damage and dirt. The team also set themselves an additional challenge, to do away with any silicones or resins in their formulas. The result? A science-led lineup of products, powered by their own patented technology, that delivers visibly healthier hair that is not only easier to style, but that stays cleaner for longer. Now, time to meet the miracle workers!

This is not your average dry shampoo. Living Proof's version employs their patented Healthy Hair Molecule (OFPMA) and triple-action cleaning technology to actually clean hair, and not just coat it in a layer of powder. The undetectable spray makes hair look and feel clean, delivering a light and fresh scent throughout the day.
Humidity wreaks havoc on hairstyles, or at least it used to before this came along. A nourishing dry spray for those between-wash days, the weightless mist acts as a shield against sticky weather (and UV rays), detangles (without making hair feel heavy), and reduces frizz and flyaways for polished style that stays that way, no matter what the barometer is doing.
Long-lasting volume is not something that happens with styling products alone. You need to lay a good foundation, and that starts in the shower. This lightweight shampoo works in two ways: the formula gently cleans without adding weight, so your hair has its best shot at reaching its full potential, and it's got a dose of peptides that plump hair fibres for even more beautiful bounce.
This hydrating conditioner delivers on multiple fronts. The combination of a moisturising ester, hemisqualane and a sugar beet derivative come together to add hydration, minimise static and flyaways, seal the cuticle (important for split ends) and make it easier to detangle. Plus, it adds a hefty dose of healthy, glossy shine. That dry and dull hair? It will look like it has come back to life.
Anyone who's a regular styling product or dry shampoo user (so, everyone?) knows how important it is to do a regular detox, and this shampoo ticks all the boxes. It's non-stripping, which makes it safe for coloured hair, and effectively removes product, pollution and oil build-up from the roots and scalp to gently clean hair and keep it clean for longer.
Fine and flat hair doesn't stand a chance against this versatile and buildable spray. The patented molecule adds instant volume to thin hair by literally increasing the space between hair fibres (clever!). It also delivers the kind of lived-in, perfectly-imperfect texture we all crave, adds grip to strands (it’ll make styling those buns and topknots infinitely easier) and offers hold to finished styles with no stiffness or crunchiness in sight. Told you, versatile.
