During the winter months I wear a woolly hat pretty much all the time, for obvious reasons when its -5 outside every day it stops my brain freezing and allows me to just about survive these cold months. Sadly, however it gives me really bad hat hair that is frizzy yet completely flat bad hair day look that makes you wish for the sun to come out just a little. To get away with this I wear my hair up a lot, I just keep to the low bun scrapped back look because its manageable and stops people noticing the bad hair. However, thanks to Spalt and Kevin Murphy I may have found my way of managing it!
I started using the ‘young again wash’ and ‘repair me rinse’ when washing my hair to help restore my poor hat hair that has been battling snow and winds and then the ‘bedroom hair’ hairspray to give back that extra oomph that I have lost.
It has been a lifesaver, it smells so so good and has helped me to through the winter blues because when you have good hair everything doesn’t seem as bad, I just walk around flicking my hair and feeling fierce.
The shampoo (Link here) has Amino Acids to restore your hair and then lotus flower and orchid extracts to give you the shine back, it is all natural so full of vitamins that helps you during these horrible climate conditions.
The conditioner (Link here) is a reconstructing conditioner with Shea butter and Aloe Vera that helps to prevent damage and also boost that shine. It also has Acai in it which I think it super interesting as it is vitamin A, C and E rich which really binds to your hair and helps keep it strong.
And then the hair spray (Link here) which is made up from Sunflower seed, Ginger root and Vegetable Glycerin to helps hold waves or curls and gives you that ‘day after’ hair look without holding everything really stiff and making it feel hard. I love using this the day after I have curled or plated my hair to keep the shape a little longer but not make it feel all horrible, it also smells super good which is a nice change from the normal hairspray smell.
Having good hair is such a good feeling but it can also be a hassle if you constantly have to maintain and use various different products, this is why I love these three together because it gives my hair that looked after look without having to put all the time and effort in when I am busy with work or school. But, now onto my favourite part of this company and that’s the sustainable side to it!
The most obvious part is that it is natural, when reading their information about the products and their relationship with the environment I can see that a lot of thought and consideration has gone into creating a product that not only helps us but also helps the planet. I love one of their statements which is ’We all depend on our planet’s environment that is a universal truth that applies to every living being no matter where you live and no matter what nationality you are.’ Kevin Murphy himself pointed out that ‘it wasn’t until I created my line of products that I became aware of just how much harm the production processes of any product had on the environment.’ So to change that they now make sure their packaging is recyclable or biodegradable and use natural ingredients that are sourced sustainably and from renewable well harvested products to reduce any harm on the environment. But that is not all, they also work with ‘Green Circle Salons’ which is a company that helps Salons and Spas reduce the waste that goes into landfills and waterways, together they do what they can to educate and share methods of how to be more sustainable and healthy plus make a profit whilst doing so and help companies to reduce their carbon footprint by offering ‘Green Salon’ which is a virtual salon that demonstrates different sustainable initiatives to salons and individuals. And finally, it’s all Cruelty free!
These are a lot of different things that one company is doing to make a difference for the environment and world around us, they are teaching good things and really doing their best! I have started to see their name around in different places and so I really hope that with the more they grow the more they will share their positivity and greenness! Only one thing I really wonder is why not advertise all of this on the bottle? Do you ever look at products and put it down because the one next to it specifies its more sustainable or natural, because I do and I have a feeling that people will start to do that more and more and why not, just mention you are a natural company or more sustainable because you will get my respect and money a lot quicker that way and hopefully yours too!
I hope you like the products, I am a huge fan of the packaging too as it is stylish and different. I like making everything look pretty in my apartment so having aesthetically pleasing packaging goes a long way; plus, different shaped bottles add a lot! I have added the different products along the way but also have linked the sustainable page here for you to read more if you wish!
