Review: Living Proof Full

Full is one of Living Proof's most popular ranges and, as you'd expect, it is designed to transform fine and flat hair into locks that feel and look naturally thicker. The range boasts cleansing and styling products and I manage to get my hands on some of them for testing!

My first introduction to the range was the Full Shampoo and and Full Conditioner. Both products are formulated with Living Proof's patented Healthy Hair Molecule (OFPMA), a unique ingredient that creates a weightless, invisible shield that repels dirt and oil to keep hair cleaner for longer. The Full Shampoo (£22 is gentle but powerful enough to leave hair squeaky clean, prepping it for maximum fullness. It applies easily, creating a rich lather that rinses away perfectly. As for the Full Conditioner (£22, it is powered by lightweight conditioning agents that adds softness and shine without pulling down the hair. It has a beautifully creamy consistency that glides through the hair effortlessly, helping to keep the amount of product per application low. Like the shampoo, it rinses away quickly and effortlessly, leaving nothing but clean and well hydrated locks behind.

The real body boosters in the range are the Full Thickening Cream and Full Dry Volume Blast. The Full Thickening Cream (£23 is a lightweight styling cream that adds thickness to every inch of hair. It is formulated with Living Proof's patented Thickening Molecule (PBAE), which creates thickening dots between hair strands to provide a fuller effect. This Thickening Molecule also lasts five times longer than others on the market, keeping hair full throughout the day. The formula itself has a thin, lotion-like consistency that applies to the hair well. It is non-sticky and non-greasy, contains conditioning agents for hair hydration, and provides ample thickness without weighing the hair down. I apply the Full Thickening Cream before drying my hair and the result is always glossy locks with a more density.

The Full Dry Volume Blast (£25 is an instant volume and texture spray that gives big, lasting results. It features the brand's patent-pending expandable, textured aero-spheres called ETAS. They’re lighter and bigger than industry-standard volumising ingredients, so they deliver impressive volume and texture to hair without weighing it down. Although the Dry Volume Blast can be applied from root to tip, I only apply it to my roots as this is where I need the most volume. It doesn't clog up my roots, doesn't weigh them down, and doesn't bring any crunchiness or stiffness to my hair. It can also be built up if you want to reapply later in the day for a body boost!

All of the products in the Full range are free of silicone and oil and are safe for hair that is treated with color or chemicals. They also feature a gentle citrus scent that packs some lasting power. For those guys and gals with fine hair, looking for a range that supports their hair type and delivers the hair goals it desires, look to this one. It will suit you perfectly.
