Try Out Tuesday – Living Proof Perfect Hair Day Body Builder

There are a myriad of volumizing products that you apply to damp hair and activate with a blow dryer. However, if you only wash your hair a couple of times a week (like I do), you are left with several days of lifeless hair. That’s why, whenever I am able to try one that can be applied to dry hair, I jump at the chance! Today (and several times before today), I tested out the @livingproofinc Perfect Hair Day Body Builder Body Building Hairspray ($29 for 7.3 ounces at @sephora).

What it claims:
πŸ”˜ A body-building hairspray that creates buildable body with airiness, movement and light hold
πŸ”˜ Powered by a customizable nozzle that adjusts the particle size and spray rate
πŸ”˜ Formula contains a blend of flexible and firm polymers to create body with softness no matter which setting you use
πŸ”˜ An emollient blend adds shine and anti-static agents improve the brush-ability
πŸ”˜ Safe and formulated for color and chemically treated hair
πŸ”˜ Cruelty-free and is formulated without parabens, phthalates and silicone

My experience:
πŸ”˜ Each time I have used this, I place the nozzle on the “M” for “More body.” There is an option for “Less body” (“L”), but I have no interest in testing that out.
πŸ”˜ Photo 1 is after application.
πŸ‘πŸ»πŸ‘ŽπŸ» The scent is strong, but mostly pleasant. I first applied it at 8:15am and it’s now 10am and I can still smell it.
πŸ”˜ I split my hair into three (3) sections and spray four (4) times in each.
πŸ”˜ I washed my hair last night and I went to bed with it damp. I ran a blow dryer through it this morning and applied this after that.
πŸ‘πŸ» It adds no crunchiness, tackiness, or stiffness to my hair.
πŸ‘πŸ»πŸ‘ŽπŸ» While you can tell that it added volume, what I have found with this product is that the volume doesn’t last too long.
πŸ‘πŸ»πŸ‘ŽπŸ» I haven’t noticed any reduced static or increased shine, but I also haven’t noticed the opposite of either.

My verdict?
This is a good product. The only things that would make it great for me would be a less strong scent and longer lasting volume (and I suppose a lesser price tag, if I’m being completely honest). I will use this up, but won’t be repurchasing.
