Between countless color changes and hot tools, I’ve been kind of a bitch to my hair, tbh. But time brings wisdom (and no more chunky purple and blonde highlights) and Perfect hair Day Shampoo has helped me be a little nicer to my mane.
When it comes to your hair, like a lot of things in life, you always want what you don’t have. In elementary school, I had mostly straight, thick hair that made me look like a member of the Dynasty cast thanks to an abundance of well-placed cowlicks. What I wanted was my older sister’s curly hair.
Jump to fifth grade and my entry into womanhood (on April Fool’s Day no less) and my hair began getting curlier and curlier. And curly hair, is work. I began lusting after Jennifer Aniston’s signature ‘do. I asked the stylist at my local Fantastic Sam’s for a “Rachel” cut, which quickly turned into a frizzy diamond after getting wet.
Ever since, I’ve put my hair through a lot. Bleach, every color but green and a whole lot of straightening with a flat iron (and chemicals). To keep it from ending up in a broken pile on my pillowcase (again) I try to wash and heat style it as little as possible.
Enter Living Proof’s Perfect hair Day Shampoo.
I’ve used a lot of shampoos that promise to make my hair less frizzy, give it more volume or prevent breakage. And I’ve been let down by almost all of them. What I love about PhD Shampoo is that it’s free of all the bad stuff (parabens, pthalates, sulfates, silicone, etc.) but it still thoroughly cleans my hair and helps it stay that way. Even with 5 trips to hot yoga in a 7-day stretch, I wash my hair just twice a week and don’t feel the need to coat my head in dry shampoo every day in between.
On top of that, my hair has gotten much more manageable since I started using this shampoo. It dries more quickly, looks smoother and shinier and gone is the crunchy straw feeling.
One big bottle of Perfect hair Day Shampoo will last you a looooong time. And this is coming from someone with thick, curly horse hair. One caveat: It may take a couple tries to figure out how much to use, since it’s free of sulfates, which make bubbles. A couple of times at the beginning I needed to double wash.
I wanted the Rachel, but now I use the shampoo Jennifer Aniston used to push. Full circle.
