Review: Kevin Murphy
As you would've noticed, I colour my hair a lot. I won't sit here and pretend that I am blessed with luscious locks that haven't been damaged by the results of bleaching - that's just not true. The reality of it is that going from one extreme (natural black hair) to the other (blonde as blonde can be) is borderline dangerous. Your hairdresser needs to wash out the bleach at the exact right time, because if they are even a few minutes too late, bye-bye hair.
Fortunately for me, this hasn't happened too often but my hair, if left untreated, will be brittle, dry and just unattractive. This is where thinking your hair can be the same as the mane of a unicorn can get even more costly. Previously, I gave my review on Redken's Extreme range and while I loved the results, I like to change up my grooming routine from time to time - I think that our bodies become somewhat immune to things when continuously exposed to it for an extended period of time (evolution?).
This time, I decided to try Kevin Murphy's Hydrate Me range. The reason I chose this brand over others was because I wanted something that was all natural, moisturising with no sodium sulfates. A lot of the time, you will see that if a shampoo is 'deeply moisturising', it always tends to have harmful sulfates so this is what really drew me to trying Kevin Murphy's products.
Although it lacks the protein benefit of the Redken range, the way it leaves my hair feeling is something I haven't felt in a really long time. My hair is smooth, silky and just looks and feels really healthy. I really recommend these products to anyone going through the same crisis I did (breakage, brittleness, dryness) - even though the initial purchase of the shampoo, conditioner and hair masque will hurt your wallet quite a bit, the results make it well worth it.
