Strong, Buoyant and Beautiful : My experience with Kevin Murphy hair products.

I am pretty sure many of us have experienced that amazing feeling of your hair when you are swimming underwater, the moment when the weight of your hair seems to fade away and everything is just floating. Imagine being able to feel that buoyancy everyday?

After trying many hair products over the years I settled on a product range that delivers just that. Kevin Murphy products are design with weightlessness in mind. I found not only does my hair look good after a salon day, but the health of my hair actually improves over time. It made my hair stronger and split ends is not really a problem for me.

That’s exactly the motivation for Kevin Murphy when he created his own brand. As a session stylist for fashion shoots and shows, he found that the model’s hair lacked the vitality that a whole day of style changes demand and as the day progressed their hair became dull and lifeless. In response he created his own range using only natural products so that beautiful hair can be maintained over time.

Not only does he boast a long list of A lists celebrities such as Jennifer Lopez, Kylie Minogue, Beyonce, Katy Perry, Heidi Klum, Enrique Iglesias as clients, but his work His work has graced the covers of magazines like Vogue, Harper’s Bazaar, Sports Illustrated swimsuit edition, Marie Claire, Vanity Fair, InStyle, Rush and GQ.

Living consciously is a very important part of my life and what makes me feel really good about using Kevin Murphy products is that all the packaging is either recyclable or biodegradable and the actual products are made from natural ingredients from sources that are sustainable and renewable. It also means no harsh chemicals on my hair, yay!

Let me introduce you to some Kevin Murphy products that have done wonders for my hair.

Kevin.Murphy Plumbing Wash and Conditioner.

Dolly Parton once quipped: “The higher the hair, the closer to God”, and this hair thickening duo is my go to when I need a confident lift and want to remove the frazzles. It gives volume and smoothes your hair at the same time. What I really like about this shampoo is that it protects and thickens up new growth. This makes it perfect for girls who need to regrow their mane after years of chemical abuse or use it during the winter to prepare a full bush of healthy hair to experiment on come summer!

Kevin Murphy Shimmer shine.

Since I started using shimmer.shine it really made a difference to my hair. I used to use hair oil to add shine to my hair and detangle it, but found that Shimmer.shine does both plus repair and nourish it, without feeling weighty and oily. It doesn’t matter what your hair colour is, this product will make your hair shimmer like light on water. One thing that I really like about it is the smell. It unfurls in the deep and exquisite warmth of Bourbon Vanilla and develops in a soft and seductive trail tinged with light. I love it! Also the bottle is just too beautiful not to have in your vanity case.
