A Restoring Blow Out

Charleston for the Weekend!

The Living Proof Restore mask treatment was what sold me on Living Proof products. I love how deeply it nourished my dry ends without adding a greasy weight to my hair!

I was given the opportunity to get a blow out, compliments of Living Proof, and have my hair diagnosed by a Living Proof stylist at a local salon. I figured she’d recommend Restore Mask Treatment, which she did, but she also used a handful of new products as well!

My hair was full of texture and residue from filming a tutorial that morning, so I blindly whipped it back into a braid to get over to the salon. I couldn’t wait to have it washed!



Jen was my stylist, and I asked her to blow it out nice and smooth, but with a good bit of volume at the roots as well!







She used the shaping hair spray as she worked, and also used it to finish my hair. I love the flexibility it offers in that it is the farthest thing from a stiff hairspray.



I also had her apply some of the full thickening mousse because my hair is super lifeless without the support of a mousse type product.

Jordan, who shot these photos, would attest that I literally could not stop running my fingers through my hair afterwards. It felt so smooth and bouncy!




I’m on a regular routine of using the shampoo and conditioner Jen recommended, to try to regain some health back into my ends. I like the styling spray, Straight, as well to help cut some of the frizz from the unending humidity here in the south! Other than being one of Jennifer Aniston’s favorite lines, Living Proof puts a huge emphasis on the science of great products for haircare. And sometimes if the focus is too heavy on hair care, the performance of the product can get lost, but that hasn’t been the case in what I’ve used from the line.

I’ll be back in a few weeks to give you an update about my extended experience with the line!

looks great!!! Your hair has grown SO fast!! Have you taken any of the hair vitamins or anything like that?

I got the No Frizz line a few years ago to help with my insane hair. I have never really looked in to their other products, though. I got a sample of their PHD dry shampoo in my birchbox this month. Super excited to try it.

Your hair has gotten so long, (I remember when I first started watching you and it was a bob, back in 2011) I just recently got a sample of the 5 in 1 styling treatment, and I love it. I was shocked because I previously had gotten a shampoo and conditioner sample and hated them with a passion. But I think I will defiantly buy some of the 5 in 1 styling treatment when my sample is gone.

Straight has been my go to for straightening for years! Works great on my thick curly hair

I loved this post. I have been such a fan of living proof hair products when I used their shampoo and conditioner and it brought my hair back to life. I’m also a big fan of the 5 in 1 styling cream, it is so awesome and gives great volume to my fine thick hair. My only problem with using their products all the time is that everything comes in such tiny bottles. For $30 for shampoo and $30 conditioner at Sephora, it should be lasting me a few months but it barely lasts one.

Thank you Living proof! I recently bought my wife the whole 5-in-1 package & she was thrilled by the surprise. We have our wedding anniversary ahead, again i want to choose a hair care product for a gift, because they leave behind a great impression.

Hi! Great post I’ll definitely be checking these out. I just got a sample of the Living Proof Perfect Hair Day in my Birchbox and it’s amazing! I shower at night and my hair still has life in the morning. I am always nervous to use a new product on my hair bc it’s thin and heavy stuff can weigh it down or make it look greasy. I’ll definitely be checking out some other products in this line! Thanks!!

Hi there! This post couldn’t be written any better!
Reading through this post reminds me of my good old room mate!

He always kept chatting about this. I will forward
this post to him. Pretty sure he will have a
good read. Many thanks for sharing!

Nice to see your hair straight…I love how smooth it is! And it has gotten long!
I really like to blow dry my hair straight on occasion but my hair is naturally wavy and with even the slightest bit of humidity, the wave starts to come out and it begins to look wonky. It’s always more of a project to keep it looking good throughout the day. But love how it looks on you!

Bev Philipp says · 11.19.15

I love your hair curly, but I’m DIGGIN’ the straight (not TOO straight!) look on you 🙂

Carole says · 11.19.15

Lovely! I started using Living Proof products about a year ago and they have completely transformed my hair. It’d take a lot to make me switch to another line of products at this point!

Jocelyn says · 11.19.15

Thanks for the info on these products, Kate! I wanted to comment because I feel like your hair has grown SO fast. Wow. The blow out looks great on you; it’s polished but relaxed.

Bennie says · 11.20.15

Your blog is full of useful information


kathy says · 11.20.15

Wow, beautiful hair!!! If I lived in the area, I would definitely visit her!!
I’ve seen small bottles of Living Proof at TJ Maxx. I will have to give it a try, but wish I could fix hair the way she did yours! Your hair is so pretty curly or straight.
