Living Proof Restore Dry Scalp Treatment review

I have very quickly become a huge fan of Living Proof hair care and have over the past few months enjoyed making my way through a selection of products.  Living Proof has taken it upon themselves to solve the root causes of everyone’s top hair concerns: frizz, damage, and fullness to name just a few and their team of stylists and scientists analyzed 100s of competitive products that have been on the market the last 30 years and what they found was that the traditional beauty industry relies on heavy silicones that mask hair symptoms but don’t really solve them.
Living Proof Restore Dry Scalp Treatment
New to the range is Restore Dry Scalp Treatment (£25) and one that I was incredibly excited to try because whenever I am stressed or feeling run down, one of the first places this shows is with my scalp which becomes really dry and flaky.

It is claimed that new discoveries in wellness have uncovered that balancing the body's microbiome is key to wellbeing. It's not just about your gut - the same is true of your skin and this includes your scalp. We all spend a lot of time and money ensuring our hair looks and feels good, for many of us, our hair is our pride and joy, but just how much thought is given to your scalp and how it is feeling?

Living Proof claim that if you suffer from a dry flaking scalp which results in itching and irritation, which mine often does, then there are very few products on the market that can help you deal with the problem. For years I was told to just use an anti-dandruff shampoo and it would cure the problem, but that was never my issue. It was actually through a skin scan at a blog event that we found the issue to my scalp problems.

Restore Dry Scalp Treatment gives both instant hydration and lasting relief from all of the problems listed above.  This product is a leave-in treatment which uses a breakthrough Vitamin B3 based microbiome balancing complex with clinically proven actives that work to balance your scalp's natural ecosystem for long-term relief. A scalp microbiome is the microorganism environment profile on the surface of your scalp which contains both good and bad bacteria. It is the balance of good and bad bacteria that has an effect on your scalp condition.

Designed to be used three times a week, this fast-absorbing lightweight product uses a hyaluronic acid based Molecular Patch delivers instant soothing and sustained hydration to the scalp.  Thankfully it is also incredibly easy to use, more so thanks to the nozzle feature at the end of the tube.

To use, your hair needs to be clean, damp and towel-dried and then, sectioning your hair, which I find easier with a comb than a brush, the advice is to divide your hair into six sections across the front of your scalp and then four across the back for easy and precise application.  Once your hair has been sectioned, it is easy to apply the product directly to the scalp and then massage it in, as this is a leave-in treatment, you don't need to wash it out, you can style your hair as you usually would do and leave the treatment to work its magic.

This has been an absolute godsend for me.  Having had the worst chest infection I have had in years with an added cough and cold, not to mention being in the middle of 4 work projects which all came to fruition at the same time, the heat was on to get everything finished whilst feeling like death - I managed it but, the chest infection took longer to clear than it should have done, then I managed to get acute bacterial conjunctivitis and am now awaiting an MRI Scan on my ankle almost a year on from when I managed to snap ligaments and so on... as you can imagine, life has been quite testing and my scalp is the one to suffer.  So with a dry, itching scalp right at the back of my head and then down the middle of my parting, I followed the advice given from Living Proof and within just 5 weeks, my scalp was back to its normal self, no irritation, no flaking and no excess dryness on my scalp.

Priced at £25 here*, Restore Dry Scalp Treatment is cruelty-free, free from parabens, phthalates and silicone and is safe for use on colour and chemically treated hair.
