KUSCO-MURPHY LAVENDER HAIR CREME – Sometimes I beat my hair into submission with heat styling and products, but most of the time I try to work with what I have. As a busy mom whose hair is a great way of gauging the weather (stick straight during dry Chicago winters, absolutely curly on humid summer days), I love finding one product that works for my schizo hair’s ever-changing texture. Kusco-Murphy Lavender Hair Creme is a light pomade that fits the bill perfectly. Kusco-Murphy is an Australian line known for top notch products with natural ingredients, and this stuff is no exception. It can be used on wet or dry hair. Applied to towel dried hair it minimizes frizz, and on dry hair it adds loads of shine and excellent hold without restricting movement. On my thick, long hair I concentrate on the ends to define my layers and run a teeny amount closer to the roots for sleek, soft hair. The effect is as natural and beautiful as the lavender fragrance, and I love that the product rinses out easily with water, leaving no trace of build-up.
FINAL VERDICT – GGI (GOTTA GET IT) – At $30 for a 4 ounce jar, Kusco-Murphy Lavender Hair Creme may seem like a costly product, but that little jar will last forever and the product really does deliver. My hair will never truly be wash-and-go, but Lavender Hair Creme gets me mighty close and it smells amazing.
