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?

    I like these kinds of deep treatment products. They really are the perfect once in awhile fix!

  2. Robin (Masshole Mommy)

    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.

  3. Aisha Kristine Chong

    Now this is one product – I would love to try – I had those bad hair days moments and can’t seem to find a really good product to style up and care for my hair.

  4. Terry

    This winter has been so hard on my body and hair… drying it out terribly. I sure could use a leave in conditioner right about now and this sounds perfect.

  5. Betsy Mitchell

    Thanks for sharing. I’m always looking for new product to try. (especially when it’s easy to use!)

  6. Amber Edwards

    My hair gets so dry in the winter, I often have to use a leave in conditioner. This one sounds amazing!

  7. Wendy Bottrell

    Sounds like a good product. Although I rarely use conditioner will check this one out. Thanks

  8. Lawna

    I love leave in conditioner type treatments. This sounds like a really good one so I will have to check it out.

  9. Pam W

    I like leave in treatments for my hair. They really help after years of blow-drying and straightening and curling.

  10. Cyndie

    I love trying new products on my hair. This one sounds great to me.

  11. Onica {MommyFactor}

    I like the idea of a leave treatment. Some days you really don’t have the time and this would be useful

  12. Ave

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

  13. Liz @ A Nut in a Nutshell

    I have dry hair so I think I’d really get benefit from something like this. Thanks for mentioning it!

  14. 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.

  15. Lady Lilith

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

  16. Tess

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

    • Sarah-Louise Bailey

      Some do – my hair is the worst for playing up when it comes to a lot of products – you don’t want to put too much on the roots try and stick to the lengths and your be a-ok :) xx

  17. Kristen from The Road to Domestication

    I definitely think my naturally curly hair would LOVE this product! I’ve never tried a leave-in conditioner before!

  18. Ashley Gill

    I think I could benefit from this.. I’ve not used leave in conditioner much but I am interested in this one!

  19. Jennifer

    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.

  20. Michele

    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!

  21. Chubskulit Rose

    My hair ios getting long and getting harder to wash. This is something I would love to try.

  22. Teresa McCluskey

    I have only used a few leave in treatments this may be a good one for me!

  23. 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!

  24. kay adeola

    I am glad you got something fitted to help you out :-)..i love leave in conditioners i have a few but have not seen this one,the dry shampoo actually makes my hair worse so i have stopped using that kind of product.

  25. Nikki

    This sounds like a great leave-in product. I can’t wash my hair daily because it gets dry. I’ll have to check this out!

  26. becca

    I love trying new products. This one sounds great to me.

  27. Veronica

    This looks like a great product to try. Is it good for African American hair types?

  28. amanda

    I think my daughter’s hair could use a lift of life.

  29. BabsProjects

    This product sounds awesome. I would love to try it on daughter’s hair. She has long, thick hair and I think this would work on her.

  30. Tough Cookie Mommy

    My hair tends to get really dry and frizzy so I love how much these leave in treatments moisturize my hair from the roots.

  31. Amanda Love

    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.

  32. Courtney Pies

    I coud totally use something like this! I’ve been looking for a leave in treatment. I will have to check this out!

  33. Mel Cole
