I've tried both, and I prefer this product to Living Proof. I feel like I get better results with Phytodefrisant, and plus it works well for me whether or not I blowdry my hair, unlike Living Proof which has no effect for me without mechanical heat.

Never tried Living Proof but I've tried just about everything under the sun...its horribly humid and rains a fair amout this time of year in Atlanta and Phyto kept my hair smoothe as silk - plus it doesn't have a strong fragrance and is NOT sticky.

Phytodefrisant Botanical Hair Relaxing Balm has always been one of our best selling hair care items, specifically for straightening the hair and/or combatting frizz.
This item uses botanical ingredients to help to loosen the curls/ waves in your hair, acts as a heat protectior, and also takes down frizz.
Living Proof's No Frizz items use PolyfluoroEster, which coats the hair to prevent humidity from getting into it, eliminating frizz. While their Straight Making items do help with straightenign the hair, their items are primarily designed to address frizz, while Phytodefrisant is primarily designed to make the hair easier to straighten but also eliminates frizz.
The amount used with both products is also slightly different. Phytodefrisant is very concentrated, so a dime sized amount applied to wet hair is best for most hair lengths and textures. A pea-sized amount can be added as a finishing product to eliminate frizz or flyaways. Living Proof's No Frizz items should be used liberally, as they work best when the hair is coated completely.
