Fall Hairspiration

This week I shared my perfect hair day secret, and today I'm back to dish about the styles inspiring my hair situation this Fall. 

I classify my hair as "kinda sorta". It is kinda curly, sorta straight, and after I've styled it, my hair looks like I was kinda sorta going for a certain style, but never all the way. Since using Living Proof's Perfect Hair Day 5-in-1 styling treatment my hair style stays put all day & beyond. Now that I am confident that my hair efforts will stay put all day long, these are the styles I am itching to try this Fall.

perfect hair day

This sweater is part muppet & 100% the softest thing I have ever worn!

My biggest hair complaint is that as soon as I walk out the door, it immediately looks like a hot mess -- 30 minutes of drying, straightening, & styling straight out the window. And because I know that my hair looks crazy, this leads to me fussing over it all day, ending in a greasy, not cute 'do by the end of the day. Since cutting my hair, I have found myself simply throwing my hair up in a pony most days, to just avoid the whole situation.

And while my denial over this issue has gotten me this far, I was ready for a update. Enter, the game changing product - Living Proof's Perfect Hair Day 5-in-1 styling treatment. I have been using it for 6 months now, & all I have to say is, "Bye, Bye stringy lifeless hair"! When I use this product (applied to damp hair before I blow dry), my hair style stays put all day & beyond. I had a friend who said that her hair was impossible to curl, so I shared this product with her & her previously curl-challenged hair was va-va-voom, for days! (hi Morgan!)

So when Living Proof asked me to try out their entire PhD (Perfect hair Day) line, including my beloved 5-in-1 Styling Treatment, along with a shampoo & conditioner, I was all "HECK YES!" The PhD shampoo & conditioner are a routine changing duo that keeps hair cleaner, longer reducing the need to wash your hair as often. These are sulfate-free, oil-free & silicone-free. 

My new hair situation? After using the PhD shampoo and conditioner (I love how little of each you need to get the job done!), I apply 5-in-1 Styling Treatment to damp hair & blow dry. Every day I am able to easily recreate a look that is smooth, with volume, polish, & a lack of static!

Jennifer Aniston is the Living Proof co-owner & hair care spoke spokesperson, & says about the brand, "What caught my attention about Living Proof is the company’s unique approach to hair care—using scientific technologies to offer women actual proof in a bottle rather than hoping for results.” And let's just all agree that Jen Aniston knows good hair!
