Winterize Your Hair Routine with Living Proof Restore

Living Proof is easily one of the most solid haircare lines on the market right now. In fact they have yet to develop an shampoo or conditioner I haven’t liked (I’m still working my way through their styling products) and their Frizz line is a staple in my bathroom. With winter around the corner, Living Proof is adding a new sulfate-free collection to their existing line of Frizz, Volume, and Straight products; Restore!

Formulated to restore your hair from the damages of heat styling, processing and seasonal dryness, Restore avoids using oils and silicones other brands use to combat dryness and damaged hair; which leave hair feeling greasy and dirty, leading to more washing, styling and processing (perpetuating a cycle of increased dryness and damages). “Restore really challenges the status-quo. It is a solution that addresses the causes of dryness and damage, offering immediate and long-term benefits, without oils and silicones,” says Jon Flint, CEO and co-founder of Living Proof. “Living Proof aims to solve the toughest beauty problems. We’re not satisfied with offering just a quick fix.”

Consisting of a shampoo ($28), conditioner ($28) and mask treatment ($42), Restore is developed with the moisture-controlling molecule, PolyfluoroEster, to create a protective layer on hair.  Restore also increases the hair’s resistance to breakage by up to 5 times, while healing, protecting and preventing further damage.

The collection has definitely strengthened my hair and added moisture, however it’s too concentrated if I use it everyday on my hair and causes slight build up. Instead I use it twice a week or with a weekly clarifying shampoo and then it’s weightless properties come through and whether I leave it natural or straighten it, my hair is shiny and full without being weighed down or frizzy. The all star product from the line is their Restore  Mask Treatment. I tend to be dryer on the ends of my hair so 5 minutes with this mask 1-2 times a week has really helped to hydrate, smooth them out and protect from split ends and heat damage.
