Last week I received a present from the people at KEVIN.MURPHY, the fashion-focused, salon-only hair care company. They sent me the Young Again Hair Care Collection (apparently they heard I turned 40…) created for women with dry and damaged hair. Boy did they pick the right girl! Not only is my hair naturally dry, frizzy and thick, I have recently experienced serious damage to the point that my ends just break off when I brush it. So I welcomed this gift and gave the treatments a go.
I tried the Young Again shampoo, conditioner, and then applied the K-Pak Revitalize bio-advanced restorative treatment for 5 minutes. First off, I could feel my hair absorbing all the nourishments that are in these products. They include a complex of 20 Amino Acids as well as anti-aging extracts from lotus flowers and orchids to help renew luster and shine to dry, brittle hair. After towel drying it I used the styling oil treatment, wrapped my hair in a towel, and went to bed.
I woke up to, yes, very un-styled hair, but it was way softer than usual. And after styling and taking my professional hair straightener (probably the reason for all the damage in the first place) to it, I couldn’t believe how: 1) shiny my hair was; 2) soft my hair was; 3) how quick and easy it was to style. (Only took 15 minutes vs. the usual 30 minutes.)
I actually had no intention of writing about this product this week, but these results were so overwhelming that I had to. I’m also going to order a case of this stuff so hopefully my old, dry and damaged hair becomes permanently young, gorgeous and shiny again! I posted the photos above to show you… Not the best quality but I swear the difference in my hair is actually akin to salon quality!
KEVIN.MURPHY products are available online.
