I don't normally like to use products that heat hair like a hair dryer or straightener because it damages my hair and I don't really bother spending time on it XD. I naturally have quite straight hair, but some parts of my hair get a bit frizzy and slightly wavy as it gets longer. So I can pretty much get away without them, but it gets really hard in colder seasons as it rains most of the times in WA. So my thick hair gets frizzy very easily and it gives even more volume that I really don't want to have as I already have lots of hair.....-_-... As some of you might have guessed already, I like to use anti-frizz hair products on the rainy days so that my hair won't look like a Pomeranian O_O.
So I thought that I might try out Living Proof No Frizz Shampoo, No Frizz Conditioner and No Frizz Nourishing Styling Cream as I always test before deciding especially when it comes to hair products. Unlike skincare, anti-frizz hair products are much easier to tell whether they're worth it after a only few uses.
I was very skeptical at the beginning simply because of the name No Frizz, but it turned out that it works very well on my hair! :D My hair was exceptionally less frizzy on the day thanks to Living Proof No Frizz range! I only used No Frizz Shampoo, No Frizz Conditioner and a bit of No Frizz Nourishing Styling Cream a night before going to bed and just combed through in the morning. And it looks pretty good without using any heating products, hey :O. I know, there are a few baby hairs hanging on my head, but I've noticed that even my hair designer struggles to calm those little frizzy ones down, so I guess that's pretty good :).
Scent & Consistency
The No Frizz range has a consistent scent, which smells a little tropical to me, not really powdery or floral. The best part is that the scent doesn't last that long at all, so it's actually quite nice to use together with other scented products like Oribe Hair Spray. I guess some might not like the fact that the scent isn't long lasting, but it can certainly be an advantage for those who like to wear fragrance and other scented products.
The shampoo and the conditioner have a pretty generic texture, and they don't feel rich upon application. No Frizz Shampoo doesn't give much lather, but it sure lathers better than some of organic shampoos.
Once it's rinsed off, my scalp didn't feel stripped off or unclean at all. It doesn't feel deep cleansing, but it cleanses very well for daily usage. It didn't give my scalp any itchiness either, which is another bonus :).

As for the No Frizz Conditioner, it felt quite light, so I didn't have high expectations when I was putting it on my hair. After a few minutes, wow, my hair was feeling silky smooth and felt somehow detangled when washed off. It doesn't weigh my hair down and my hair already looked quite neat even right after towel drying :3.

Then, I followed with No Frizz Nourishing Styling Cream. I was initially a little concerned from the name nourishing as some of the styling products that were actually nourishing seemed to weigh my hair down and made it look quite greasy. However, as I loved their shampoo and conditioner, I gave it a try. Surprisingly, it's in a light cream gel type of texture, which also felt very light in my hair.
It almost disappeared into my towel dried hair, so I wasn't sure how it would turn out once my hair was air dried. Regardless, I love the lightness and I really loved the fact that it didn't give my skin any irritation around my neck area :). It doesn't feel that repairing, but it does seem to tame my frizzy hair quite well. Due to its light consistency, it's very easy to layer so I like to use it right after towel drying and once my hair's fully air dried.
