Summer Survival with Living Proof

Summer Survival with Living Proof

I’ve had so many different hairstyles (and colors) in this past year. I’ve tried so many cuts, but until now I hadn’t found a style that I really loved. I recently had my hair cut at Lumination Salon in Lakeview and I have been absolutely loving my hair ever since. The experience was more personalized and also educational. Not only did I get a great cut, but I learned how to style my hair. I was lucky enough to have the salon owner, Adam, do my hair. Adam has received many awards since opening the salon a few months ago, including” Best Trend Hair Colorist” by CS and “Best Salon in Chicago” by TimoutChicago.com.

Adam used Living Proof products on my hair. My favorite is the Humidity Shield. It gets really humid in Chicago, which makes my hair look frizzy and gross. It turns out there’s a remedy and it’s this magical product. I spray it on before and after straightening my hair, then my hair stays frizz free for the rest of the day. I’m still blown away by this product.

I also took home a Living Proof Dry Shampoo. I almost always wash my hair every single morning, and every time I tell this to a hairstylist, I get a ‘that’s so bad for your hair’ or ‘why don’t use dry shampoo’ reply. I’ve tried dry shampoos before, but my hair just gets so oily that I wind up washing it. Adam convinced me that I really needed to try Living Proof’s dry shampoo as it would be superior to any other I had tried. So, as I’m writing this post, it has been more than 24 hours since I last washed my hair. That’s major for me. I think the last time that happened was when I reluctantly went on my senior year high school camping trip.

How-to

I sprayed the product at my roots in the morning and it really did take away all of the grease. Then I put a little Nourishing Oil on just the ends to add shine. I still feel kinda not completely clean, but whenever I go into the bathroom and look in the mirror, I’m surprised by how freshly washed my hair looks. I’m not saying I’ll skip a wash every other day, but I’m glad to know it’s there as an option in case I’m running late one morning.

    I use to see Living Proof all the time when I worked at ultra. It looks like a nice line although I’ve never tried it.
