To help combat the aging process of hair, KEVIN.MURPHY recently introduced a new line of YOUNG.AGAIN products, composed of a WASH, RINSE & MASQUE. The line of anti-aging hair care is designed to help renew lustre and shine to dry, damaged or brittle hair.

I had an opportunity to test drive all three Young.Again products on my colour-treated hair – hair that has been colour-treated for as long as I can remember, most recently back to blonde highlights from brunette, using *gasp* bleach. (My hair stylist becomes very resentful when he has to reach for the bleach lol. He prefers high-lift colours and truth be told, I don’t blame him. My hair remains much healthier without bleach!) Needless to say, my poor hair is fragile after decolourizing, especially in the blonder parts.

Let’s first talk about my favourite of the three, the Young.Again.Masque. This is a deep conditioning treatment that will leave your hair feeling incredibly soft and luscious – even after the first use. The Masque is light, leaving no residue upon rinsing unlike some other deep conditioners. Immortelle and Baobab-infused like the other products, and high in antioxidants, the Masque has the same restorative and softening qualities as the Wash and the Rinse.

The Young.Again.Wash is a gentle cleanser, gentle enough for me to use every day – I put it to the test even though I try and refrain from washing my hair daily, preferring instead to skip a day. Even with daily washing, my hair didn’t feel dry or stripped using the Wash.

The Young.Again.Rinse is the line’s main conditioner, meant to be used following the Wash, while the Masque is more of a treatment, used a minimum of once a week. However, though creamy and incredibly softening, the Rinse was a little light for me – truly a Rinse, whereas I prefer slightly richer conditioners. As a result, I found myself using the Young.Again.Masque more regularly and let me tell you, my hair loved me for it!

And the heavenly scent of the line! Possessing a light, slightly sweet scent that reminds me of linen and a fresh summer’s day, I found myself wishing the scent would linger and linger… Can Kevin Murphy launch a body line?? 🙂

And just for fun, here is a photo of me getting highlights and the end result! Lightened about 4 to 5 levels! (Could I have any more foils in my hair?)

I also tried Kevin.Murphy’s new SUPER.GOO, a firm hold rubbery gel that gives hair a separated look with a flexible but strong hold. It provides a slight rubber finish, but is no-flake and a water-soluble setting and molding gel containing extracts of Green Tea, Bamboo and Nettle. I used it to separate my ends for that slightly messy bedhead, and found that a little goes a very long way. It’s a great way to revive hair if you can’t shampoo but want to change your style a little – especially on waved or curled ends.

My other, ahem, tester, the hubby, has since “borrowed” the product and neglected to return it. His review: he loves the firm hold it provides his curly, short hair, and loves the rubbery texture. And it washes out easily!

Firm Hold Rubbery Gel

SUPER.GOO is the latest styling aid to join our line. It’s a firm hold rubbery gel that gives hair a chunky, separated look. It is flexible but still has a strong hold with a rubber finish that gives it a “certain bounce”. A no-flake, water soluble setting and molding gel, SUPER.GOO contains extracts of Green Tea, Bamboo and Nettle, which allow hair to be molded into shapes.

SUPER.GOO is especially good for both slick looks and looks that require a strong hold with separation. SUPER.GOO has a unique rubber-like texture, therefore it has the ability to last throughout the entire day without going droopy or losing the style or shape of your look.

Suggested Retail Price in Canada is CAD$22.00 and it was launched in salons MAY/JUNE 2013!

Introducing a product from our new segment, Treatment Styling.

SHIMMER.SHINE is a styling product that simultaneously treats hair. Light reflective technology from high-end skincare adds a brilliant shine to hair with no oily residue. SHIMMER.SHINE contains treatment ingredients that repair damaged hair driven by essential oils, bioflavonoids and vitamins.

Extracts from 6 Australian Rainforest were chosen for their resilience and their ability to flourish in harsh climatic conditions. Immortelle and Baobab extracts moisturize and add elasticity to the surface of the hair as they are rich in antioxidants.

Bamboo Extracts and Vitamins A, C and E nourish and thicken the hair and are instantly absorbed deep into the cortex. Bamboo has a high concentration of silica known for its restorative effects on the hair’s surface. Bamboo Extracts add a natural shine and lustre to the hair.

Apply to damp hair before styling and or use as a finishing product to add shine.
