With long chemically treated hair, I am always looking for great hair care products to keep my hair healthy and shiny. One of those brands I really enjoy for its incredible results is Kevin Murphy (you can find all my previous reviews via the labels to the left of the blog), so I was excited to put the newest offerings to the test.. 

The new shampoo and conditioner from Kevin Murphy, SMOOTH.AGAIN.WASH and SMOOTH.AGAIN.RINSE has been designed to help the hair tame frizz, by using naturally derived ingredients and biomimetic technology.

The Kevin Murphy SMOOTH.AGAIN.WASH contains among others monoi oil from gardenia flower to smooth and tame he hair, sunflower seed extract to protect the hair, and murumuru seed butter for healthy hair and growth, and olive fruit oil to imitate the natural oils of a healthy scalp.

The Kevin Murphy SMOOTH.AGAIN.RINSE contains among others a keratin protein to give the hair extra strength and shine, along with cocoa seed butter to heal damaged ends and improve flexibility, along with Brazil nut oil to help protect, nourish and protect the hair from future damage.

Both products have a slight smell of coconut, which I wish they didn’t, as it is not my preferred scent, however, as the results speak for themselves, I can certainly put up with this smell - which by the way, I know others will absolutely love. And the products really do leave my hair feeling so soft and smooth, from the very first use. The dry ends of my hair, seem healthier, and frizz is definitely minimised to the point where I don't feel that I absolutely have to use an oil serum to smooth it down.

I also love the square upside-down bottles, which are not only super funky, but also makes it possible to completely empty the bottles without any wastage.

The Kevin Murphy LEAVE-IN.REPAIR is as the name suggests a leave-in treatment which helps treat hair damaged by colouring, harsh sun or everyday pollutants. This treatment can be used in either damp or towel dried hair, and is using anti-ageing skincare research to help nourish and protect the hair and prevent further damage and breakage. It is free from parabens and contains among others rose geranium, clove leaf oil, jojoba seed oil, green tea protein and bamboo leaf extract as well as pineapple and papaya enzymes to help repair the hair and increase moisture retention, for a reconstructed and revitalised hair, that is shinier and healthier.

The actual treatment is thin and light, and absorbs quickly and easily into the hair, without making it look or feel greasy, or weighing it down, and like all other Kevin Murphy products, it is a lovely natural scent from the natural ingredients. I really love how soft and smooth this treatment makes my hair, and I love that I can use it in both wet and dry hair, so I can also give my hair an extra moisture boost and protection on the days I don’t wash it. It comes in a gorgeous, and architecturally shaped pastel blue bottle that looks stunning in the bathroom, and is easy to use thanks to the pump.

I have also really been loving the Kevin Murphy DOO.OVER, which is a dry powder finishing hairspray, designed to be used on dry hair to remove any excess moisture and oil, and give the hair more volume at the same time, to help revive and refresh, or you can say 'doo' over your hairstyle, and this extending the period between hair washes.

The DOO.OVER contains among others tapioca starch to help keep the hair soft and remove excess oil and moisture, as well as Virginian cedar wood for its astringent and antiseptic properties, along with silica to increase the hair's volume and shine, while providing just a tiny bit of hold, sufficient to stop those frustrating flyaways.

DOO.OVER smells kind of like most hairsprays, but I really like this one, as it has helped add so much volume into my heavy and flat long hair by spraying it onto the roots, all while being such a lifesaver when I'm in a rush in the mornings and haven't got time to wash my hair. Other sprays like this also often make the hair look white and dull, but not this one, which does give it a touch of sheen, which is a refreshing change. Yes, a little pricey, but absolutely worth it. And besides, who can resist that pretty pink can!!
