I got my hair cut a few weeks ago and my hair dresser introduced me to a new line by Kevin Murphy: the plumping collection. It includes a plumping wash (shampoo), plumping rinse (conditioner), and body mass (a leave-in treatment). I did not expect my hair to actually plump up just because of some shampoo, but let me tell you, it did. I have very fine hair and I feel like I’m always losing too much of it in the shower and wishing it would bulk-up. Thank you Kevin Murphy for creating something just for me. I’m fully obsessed.
I love the packaging on all Kevin Murphy products, but especially the pink shades of this collection. So pretty! The product itself smells so amazing, I can’t even explain it. They contain orchid and citrus extracts so it leaves my hair smelling fresh and feminine for days. I’m seriously in love with the smell. The formula doesn’t leave my hair feeling too heavy or oily. It’s very softening and hydrating and actually thickens the size of my pony tail. I’ve been wearing my hair down almost every day since I got it cut, and before that I would wear it down maybe once or twice a month.
This line uses the same technology used in eyelash thickening/lengthening to plump and thicken the hair strands. It also pairs natural ingredients such as ginger root, nettle extracts, parsley, and aloe vera to stimulate the scalp and increase the growth rate of the hair. The shampoo combines rice proteins, sugar cane, and bamboo extracts to prevent damage to the cell structure of the hair and rebuild the thickness and strength. The conditioner includes Vitamin B and shea butter to soften, create shine, and protect the hair from external damage. After you wash and rinse your hair (while it’s still damp), spray the Body Mass on any baby hairs and massage into your roots. I’ve noticed that the little hairs surrounding my face are actually starting to lengthen!
Kevin Murphy is an Australian based hair company that uses the most natural ingredients possible to maintain a high quality and effective product. All products are sulphate and paraben free and include plant extracts, natural antioxidants, and pure essential oils to accommodate all hair types. Since this is a professional line, you can only find these products in salons. This makes them a little more pricey. However, a little bit goes a long way so the product will last you longer than drug store brands and my hair is telling me it’s completely worth it! I highly recommend this duo if you’re looking for a new shampoo and conditioner. Even if you don’t have really fine hair, it’s still a great product to soften, add shine, and leave your hair smelling amazing.
