Kevin Murphy Staying Alive: Review

Kevin.Murphy Staying.AliveI’m not going to lie – sometimes washing my hair is hard, thankfully today I had my bath board fitted which should help matters as I can now sit down while I shower (honestly I have been so over excited about this, it’s been so nice having a shower but some days standing up doesn’t happen, so sitting down is going to mean more accessibility for me).

Your probably all wondering why I am telling you the wonders of my shower when apparently reviewing a leave-in treatment, well worry not I have not lost the plot, over the years of not being able to bath everyday, I came up with different ways to make things easier on myself, of course one way was a dry shampoo, but there is only so long that works for, so I switched things round a little, I would shampoo my hair and then finish it off with a leave in conditioner and today I have one of my latest finds in the leave in conditioner stakes Kevin Murphy Staying Alive.

Kevin Murphy Staying Alive is an intense leave in treatment it contains both olive leaf extract and rose hip oil which are rich in antioxidants and help protect the hair alongside Honey and Ivy to moisturise, soften and give hair the flexibility you desire. The formula is Paraben free and made to also help ease frizz, strengthen the hair and add shine.

One of the things I love about this is just how easy it is to use, you just spray onto damp hair then comb through. This does offer a deep treatment that I wouldn’t use on my hair every wash but of course this makes it perfect for those bad days when I can’t completely finish it off in the shower.

When it comes to action on the hair it most definitely lived up to expectations leaving it smooth, less frizzy and feeling soft so if you’re after a more deep conditioning treatment that you don’t have to wash out I can definitely recommend Kevin Murphy Staying Alive – to give your hair almost a new lease on life.

Kevin Murphy Staying Alive costs £18 for 150ml from The Salon Look.

What do you think of Kevin Murphy Staying Alive, do you think your hair would enjoy a pampering from it?

    This sounds like a great product. I get keratin treatments in my hair, so I don’t know if I can use this or not. I would have to ask my stylist.

    Sounds like a great product! Thanks for a great review! Olive leaf extract sounds really interesting.

  8. Joanna Sormunen   •  

    My idea of haircare is shampoo and that’s it. I think the easier the hair to take care, the better. I just don’t want to spend any time in it.

    Nice find. I can definitely use it for an emergency or two…
    I agree not to be used daily but worth having around.

    I always wondered if those leave in treatments would make your hair greasy or flat. Now, I know they dont!

    Most of the leave in treatments I have tried do not work. I will have to check this one out. My hair is really dry so the deep leave in treatment might be perfect.

    I could definitely use this product-you see keeping my right arm “up” for any period of time hurts-so a leave in conditioner would halve the time that arm is raised while washing my hair. And my hair could definitely use some shine and revitalization!

  16. Ronnie   •  

    I’ve been considering leave in conditioner myself bc my hair can end up very dry in the winter.. almost straw-like. Thanks for this, I’ll look into it!

    My hair gets very dry here in the altitude in CO. I could surely use a lift when it comes to my hair. Will check this out and see if it’s available here. Thanks for posting.
