Review: Kevin Murphy's Luxury Hair Care for Thick Coarse Hair

Despite Kevin Murphy's credentials: a stylist for Vogue, Harper's Bazaar... and the exclusive hair care for Melbourne Fashion Week,  I had never heard of this Australian brand before. So when, a few weeks ago, I had the opportunity to try Kevin Murphy's hair care products at the Blonde salon's event in Toronto, I decided to give it a go. First of all, these products are paraben and sulphate free - which is good - but I was particularly interested in the Luxury line since it is especially designed for thick, coarse hair. And God knows, if my hair was any thicker, I would probably be a horse!
Anyway, the stylist from Blonde first used the maxi.wash shampoo ($25) to remove all the crap hair product residues from my hair, followed by the luxury.rinse conditioner and my hair was so smooth that I made Lisamarie caress touch it (and she liked it).

This time, I tried the smoothing shampoo (luxury.wash, 250ml, $25) which contains mango butter and Buriti nut oil (a source of vitamin A) as well as the restoring conditioner (luxury.rinse, 250ml, $25) which contains Kukui nut oil and Murumuru butter... again I had never heard of these nuts before (testing beauty products can be educational, apparently) but the scent is gorgeous without being overpowering and I have to admit the results are great. My hair feels clean, soft, and most of all combined with the phyto defrisant - once flat-ironed, my hair stays smooth and frizz-free for days!

The downside? $25 is not exactly cheap... but if you've got thick, frizzy hair, you should give this luxury duo a try!

Kevin Murphy products can be found at select salons across Canada..



  1. Don't you just adore Kevin Murphy products? I am going in to wash my hair right now with my Angel Wash and Rinse. You reminded me of how much I could use the boost(and the cleansing! ha ha)

  2. I'm so glad I tried these products. It's good stuff!


  3. Does anyone know a website that delivers Kevin Murphy products to Canadian addresses?

  4. Hi Kate, Amazon.com carries Kevin Murphy products and ships to Canada. For some reason, they don't have them on Amazon.ca...

    Best, Lisamarie

  5. Kevin Murphy is available in Canada - their distributor is West Coast Beauty - check out their website and they should direct you to who carries it in your area.
