Good product - 13-12-2018 by

Leaves my hair feeling so fresh and energised, amazing scent too! Would recommend!

Best Shampoo - 27-11-2018 by

Bought this shampoo as I have oily roots and dry ends and find it so hard to get any life or volume from my hair. Was a bit put off by the price, but it is actually worth the money. You only need a small amount so it will last a while, and leaves my hair feeling so good! Soft and shiny for days. Will be repurchasing and will try the other Kevin Murphy ones.

Great product - 07-11-2018 by

I switch between this and hydrate me wash it’s great I can use everyday if needed and it doesn’t dry my hair or scalp out
pleasant smell and the bottle lasts for a Long time

Cleanses and controls oily hair - 24-10-2018 by

Cleans my hair beautifully without stripping it and making it feel dry. Controls and helps an oily scalp and makes my hair feel fresh! Loved this shampoo

Volume galore - 16-10-2018 by

This is the best shampoo i have ever used. My hair has never had this much volume and the oil is significantly reduced- I've never lasted more than 2 days. I will definitely recommend this shampoo to everyone.

Love this - 12-09-2018 by

Have not been using this long.. but deffinetly my favourite shampoo now! It is perfect for an oily based hair and is not too stripping! Makes my hair feel healthy again! Great for daily use too which is a plus!

Quality product - 10-09-2018 by

This is a lovely product, but I do have quite thick hair, so have found that I have had to use quite a lot of it to get a good clean. The smell is gorgeous and natural and the product does look and feel very luxurious.

Game changer - 28-08-2018 by

This product has changed my life. As someone who suffered from extremely oily hair (washed every morning as it looked dirty) this product has been a god send. I can now go more than 24 hours without having to worry about how oily my roots look and if I need to wash my hair again. Would definitely purchase again and have recommended to friends.

Where have you been all my life!? - 28-08-2018 by

I have struggled with oily hair my whole life, my hair would get oily within a day of washing it. I didn't have high hopes for this shampoo as nothing has ever worked really well on my hair but after over 20 odd years of searching I have finally found a shampoo that works!! I can wash every 3 days now!!!!!!!!! THIS PRODUCT IS AMAZING!!!

beautiful product - 20-08-2018 by

I purchased this shampoo as I have oil roots and dry ends, and after using the kevin murphy hydrate me and protection wash i thought this might be better suited to my hair however it still gets quite oily. My hair feels amazing though after the first wash, silky and smooth, but I still have to use dry shampoo the day after.

YES YES YES - 14-08-2018 by

My hair gets super oily with frizzy dry ends so finding a shampoo that helps with the oil but doesn't dry it out is hard. After looking forever I tried this one and I love it! 24 hours after washing my hair instead of being it's usual gross oily way, it now will still be a little soft, straight and clean

Meh - 25-06-2018 by

Not sure about this. Hasn’t helped my blonde streaked fine hair shoulder length. For me no game changer but the Kevin Murphy Angel Wash and rinse I recommend it is fab maintains moisture and controls dry ends and smells amazing. This balancing wash has no scent which for me is a negative as scent is a big part of the experience. Cleans but no moisture.

Great for oily hair - 09-06-2018 by

I've got the unhelpul combo of naturally curly hair that's prone to frizz, oily roots and dry ends (from blow drying and straightening). Since moving to Sydney from the UK, my old shampoo (also prestige) was leaving my hair lank and oily far too quickly.

The Kevin Murphy shampoo was the break I needed - my hair feels properly cleansed to the roots and it seems to keep the oil at bay. It isn't quite as good at taming the frizz as the old shampoo was, but I am trialling a couple of conditioners to see if I can find a happy medium that way. As a few other reviewers have said - be careful when you open the lid or you'll lose too much down the drain!

Brilliant Product - 29-04-2018 by

Since hitting my late 20’s and now 30 (yikes!), my hair thanks to hormones i think, became incredibly oily at the roots within one or two days of washing. This shampoo has enabled me to go back to washing every 3 days. It really does balance my oily roots and dry ends. Smells divine! Shampoo twice for best results- hair feels SO Clean! Im in love!

Love washing my hair now - 16-04-2018 by

Having moved to Sydney, I found my hair was getting knotty, dry and lacklustre using my previous (also premium brand) shampoo. My hairdresser is a Kevin Murphy rep and suggested I try this range. Following the KM assessment online, I bought this shampoo and the Angel Rinse for my thick, fine hair that was getting oily by the 2nd day with dry ends. The combination has cured it perfectly! It looks and feels healthy, shiny and maintains my colour (blonde) whilst smelling great and I can sometimes get 3 days out of my hair. Even my hairdresser said my hair and scalp were much healthier. My only complaint is that the shape of the bottle means it does run out and you end up with too much.

Great shampoo, free of SLS, parabens etc - 13-03-2018 by

I originally wanted to try this shampoo after my hairdresser used it. She said it would help 'balance' my oily roots and slightly dehydrated ends. I find that to be true. It smells amazing, feels light in my hair and doesn't weigh it down. I also wanted a shampoo free of silicone, SLS and paraben, and this is that for me. My hair is fine but thick, and this works well. I'll be looking to try this with the Hydrating rinse next, I think that would work well

Best shampoo - 08-02-2018 by

I love a majority of the Kevin Murphy and this is my shampoo of choice from the range. It smells organic and I only have to use a small amount to get a good lather in my medium length hair. My hair feels clean and lightweight when I blow dry it or leave to dry naturally and doesn’t leave that oily residue that some paraben free shampoos tend to leave. I have ash blonde hair and it doesn’t make my hair brassy at all. It can be pricey but worth the $$ as you don’t have to spend money on other soothing products. Love it!

Works well as a clarifying shampoo - 19-12-2017 by

I was using this for my first wash as recommended by my hairdresser. It was supposed to help my hair get less oily by the second day after washing but I don't think it helped. It's a nice shampoo and I stopped buying it when I switched from the angel range back to the plumping range. It left my hair looking cleaner than when I double shampoo'd with the angel wash only, but again, no additional longevity to overall cleanliness of my hair.

Super impressed! - 11-08-2017 by

I have fine hair that tends to get oily quickly! My aim was to find a decent shampoo and conditioner that I could use twice a week to stretch out washing time but treat my hair at the same time! I found you really only need a 10 cent size amount which goes a LONG way! I loved it!!

Great shampoo for oily roots and dry ends - 27-06-2014 by

I have oily roots and dry ends. Kevin.Murphy Balancing Wash shampoo, in combination with Kevin.Murphy Hydrating Rinse is perfect for my hair, leaving it silky and not oily or dry.

- 09-10-2009 by

I used a sample on my oily hair. I also have a LOT of hair, so I require a shampoo that penetrates well. This didn't do the job for me. I needed to use a large amount of product, in fact, I used the entire trial packet and I still wasn't able to work it through all of my hair (despite lots of effort). It seemed to cleanse well in the areas that it did get to, though.
