We are problem solvers.

Company Name:
Living proof
 
Company Description:
We are problem solvers. We solve the toughest beauty challenges with science and patented technology originating from MIT. Our founders are hair stylists who were fed up with the limitations of conventional products and scientists from outside the beauty industry with no preconceived notions of what can and can’t be done. Twenty-five patents, 50 products, and 100 awards later, we have countless love letters thanking us for making products that keep their promises and for changing lives in ways both big and small. We are not hope in a bottle. We are Living Proof. And so are you. 

Why Living Proof
  • Wash your hair less often with products that repel dirt so your hair stays cleaner longer. Less washing, less styling, and more time spent on things other than your hair.
  • Go beyond an instant quick fix. Get hair that’s visibly healthier over time. In a study of over 670 women, 3 out of 4 saw an instant improvement in their hair after using Living Proof, and after 6 months 97% said their hair was significantly more healthy, manageable, shiny, smooth, strong and thick.
  • Get beautiful styles that lasts. We don’t use heavy silicones or stiff resins. Let the other guys use those. Living proof products use our patented technology that is lightweight, touchable, and repels style-destroying humidity and dirt so you can have smile-inducing styles that last.
