I am very resistant to trying new hair products of any type. My hair is so thin, that most products (regardless of the type or manufacturer) tend to make my hair limp, greasy, and in need of an immediate wash. These effects only get worse if it is a rainy day, and trust me, it is ugly!

When I was asked to try Living Proof Full Thickening Cream, I have to admit that I was a bit hesitant and completely expecting the usual “ugly” side-effects. Living Proof is a company of scientists from leading universities who, as they so elegantly put it, are “working together with beauty experts towards one common goal: to invent breakthrough formulas that provide beautiful results you can see from across the room.” I was intrigued, so I said, “What the hay? It’s only one day of bad hair – I’ll just make it a Sunday when I’m cleaning house.”
The results? I was completely wowed! The first day I tried it, the weather was on and off rainy, but I could immediately see and feel a difference in my hair as I was blow-drying. My hair had amazing volume and felt and looked thicker. I have never looked so good cleaning the house. I decided to try a second day, which meant going out in public (yes, work). The weather was sunny and warmer. Again, the effect on my hair was incredible! This product definitely can withstand the change in weather. The only downside to this product is that the second day after I stopped using it, my hair was very limp and oily. Thus, I would certainly recommend this product for regular use, but don’t run out!
