Great in every wayFirst up if a shampoo smells like chemicals, cheap perfume or cucumber I'm not going to putting it on my head! KM's volumnising shampoo is delicately scented and I only needed to use a little of the thick pearly lotion. No need for a conditioner as my hair felt comfortable without. I later used his volumnising treatment and the results are fabulous.
Plumped up hair!I received a sample of this along with the conditioner and my dead straight fine to medium hair has really never looked so juicy first thing post wash. Highly recommend!
Made a differenceverified purchaserNoticeably thickened effect on the roots of my hair. I've always had a bit of issue with thinning hair and a month of shampooing with this has really helped.
A great boostI have fine hair that can seem thick because there is a lot of it, but can be weighed down easily. So it's a fine balance to get my hair just right. This has given me an extra boost of volume on days where I do zero styling (which is most days). It has a really nice texture and aroma to it. I use this regularly swapping between this shampoo and the Kevin Murphy Balancing Wash for a year now and I'...Read More
One of the best high end shampoosWho could think that just a shampoo on its own could give extra volume without any product added afterwards! Thats exactly what this shampoo did to my hair! Will re-purchase.
Great for fine hair...verified purchaserThis is a great product for fine flyaway hair as it gives body and fullness. Expensive but worth it!
Not badI received this sample in my order and didn’t mind it made my hair smell nice, but hard to say if it helped with the thinning hair will have to try again I didn’t love it nor did I hate it.
Pre styling shampooLove using this before styling my hair as it gives my hair volume and plump that is long lasting
Appears to do as it claimsLeaves my hair feeling clean without over drying. It has a pleasant smell, my hair looks shiny and healthy. I liked using this product, I received it as a sample and would be interested in purchasing to use again.
Smells is so goodI have thin hair so I thought I’d give it a shot. Not sure what it really does for “plumping” but it is a nice shampoo
Smells amazing.Lovely gentle wash. Smells amazing, and I can notice from the first wash that my hair appeared to have more volume without being fluffy or wispy, just soft and with a bit of extra lift.
Plumps my fine hairSmells nice, and leaves my hair fresh with volume.
Plumps my fine hairSmells nice, and leaves my hair fresh with volume.
nicei liked thia. im not sure it gave me much body/volume but i did notice i was losing less strands after washing so i think it helped with density. made my hair night and soft too. i will purchase again.
Great for Fine HairStarted using this product a few months ago, and had previously used the Angel range. I find this is a great wash for fine and limp hair. I like to lather and let it sit for a minute while I shower to let the suds really get in there. Since using using this range with the adjoining conditioner I have found that my hair looks and feels healthier. I have also found that my hair seems to grow quicke...Read More
Love itMy hairdresser suggested I use this to help with my very fine, limp, damaged hair and it has been a great purchase. Really helps to add thickness to my hair without damaging it further. Also good with extensions if you have them
OBSESSEDMy new fave shampoo! Nothing I've used before has made my hair feel and look this amazing. It's shiny, healthy, plumped and looks thicker.
Thank you KEVIN.MURPHY xoxox
Love this!This product is great for my fine, limp hair. It helps restore some shine and natural movement. I also find it much easier to style after using this.
I recommend alternating this with a more affordable product if the cost is the main concern.
If you haven't tried it yet though, it's really worth a shot.
works well!Usually my scalp doesnt like sulfate free products - i get itchy and greasy by the end of the day. This shampoo seems to be an exception.
It doesnt lather much, but my hair is always so soft and lifted at the roots after using. It also has the bonus effect of enhancing my curl pattern.
Fabulous shampoo for fine or thinning hairAs some reviewers have mentioned I doubted any shampoo could justifiably cost over $45. But this product not only had a lovely fragrance, it gave my hair more body and volume than I have ever obtained. There are some fine volumnising shampoos & conditioners on the maket that don't test on animals, smell nice and give good results. None however, equal KM's Pumping Wash.
Tangled messUnfortunately this product did not agree with my oily and bleached hair. Whilst it cleaned well, it left my hair an incredibly knotty mess which took ages to detangle. I didn’t really see any change in the volume of my hair so don’t think it lives up to its name.
Love this shampooDefinitely my favorite shampoo! Smells amazing and leaves my hair super soft and shiny. The only (-) is the price, but still worth it!
Fave shampoo!I used to have thin hair and this shampoo has help stimulate growth and made my hair so strong and luscious! I won’t use anything but Kevin Murphy!
Favourite Shampoo!I have been using this shampoo for around 4 years now and I am still happy with it. I have extremely fine, wavy hair and this is the only shampoo that I have used that I find will leave my hair feeling nourished and frizz-free. This lasts me around 3 months which is definitely worth the price tag.
Best shampoo for thinning hairI had severe postnatal hair fall , 4 months after the delivery and lasted until 6.
I used many shampoos but I lost chunks of hair in the shower. I came across this brand in insta (another mumma boasting and showing off her luscious hair postnatal) and I wanted to try it.
It was brilliant just after my first wash (used it with the conditioner) and gradually the hair fall reduced ...Read More
Smells amazingMy hair smells amazing and has developed a beautiful shine. Don't think it has done much for the thickness or plumping. I also think my hair has become a lot more frizzier and very untamed since using.
Many benefits in oneI've been using this product for over 8 months and I continue to buy it, it gives my hair that just sits flat to my head all the time, some great volume! My hair type is un-dyed, oily at the roots, medium length, and thin. I used to have to wash my hair every day or it would be disgusting with so much oil it would look slick. Now I wash my hair every three days, this shampoo has really helped to d...Read More
Love my hairdresser for this recMy hair immediately feels thicker and fuller and less breakages after just a few use! Definitely sticking with this!! Smells amazing too!
ShampooLove this product. Leaves your hair so beautiful and clean. It is thick and luscious shampoo that works beautifully on my curly hair. Love it!
Didn’t realise a shampoo could make my hair look thickerWow, my thin hair now has some life in it again! Very shocked with how well this works.
Gives amazing volumeHave been using this product for the past six months - gives amazing volume each wash. Would recommend
Great for winter monthsMy hair has been dry leading into the cold winter months but this shampoo has left my hair feeling revitalised without weighing it down.
Great washreceived this as a sample recently and felt a bit fancy when i sued it for a week. I really liked the wash - it lathered excellently. I enjoyed the smell of this too. Felt like i got a good clean, did not really notice any plumping effects, but my hair is already thick and wavy. Maybe this might be something you notice after long term use?
Plump wash!for hair volume use this plump wash! i love all Kevin Murphy products!
AmazingThis is my second bottle of the Kevin Murphy Plumping Wash - it is now my go-to shampoo. Not only does it smell divine, it keeps my hair smooth without sacrificing on volume! - Definitely repurchasing!
Works a charm!Had to do some major repair after dying my dark brown hair to blonde (idiot move). Absolutely ruined my hair. Became frail and stopped growing and basically always looked like s**t. The breakage was a nightmare. Went back to my natural colour and started using the Kevin Murphy range. Was a bit touch and go trying to find the right product for me but I finally settled on the plumping wash and I ain...Read More
alrightA pretty good hair wash, however haven't noticed any major differences in the fullness of my hair. Hopefully it will work better after a few more washes!
Scent is EarthyWas not expecting the scent to be so earthy. But you can definitly smell the ingredients working their magic. My hair is definitly been much cleaner and less oily since introducing this shampoo. As for thickening its hard to tell. Need to give it a month or two i reckon. Cant wait to see final results.
Nice lookSmells fab, makes hair shiny and soft. But, not sure it really helped with hair growth.
Great stuffThe plumping wash and rinse are great for my hair. I have very fine hair, prone to thinning due to illness. My hairdresser suggested the wash and after a couple of years using the product my hair is looking healthier and I have less of my scalp showing through my hair, especially around the forehead hairline. It also smells so delicious!
I really hope they bring back the larger size...Read More
My hair loves thisMy hair is thinning immensely and after getting sick of filling my thinning hairline with pigment, I thought I'd take the plunge and try a plumping shampoo. Well, let me tell you how impressed I am with this! It does what it claims and plumps my hair like you would not believe. I no longer need to put pigment in my hair to make it appear fuller. Ever since using this shampoo (and its respective co...Read More
Amazing resultsMy hair immediately feels thicker and fuller and less breakages after just a few use! Definitely sticking with this!! Smells amazing too!
Love itWorks great. I noticed a slight improvement even after the first wash. I am three washes in now and can definitely notice a difference, so can my partner. I will keep using this product!
Gives my hair a nice lift from the rootsI find this one leaves my hair feeling nice and full. It smells great and lathers up really well. The only downfall is that it's expensive and that you don't get much product in the bottle.
Definitely plumps and washesThis is a great shampoo for fine hair- it definitely plumps it up. This plumping gives my hair more of a tendency towards frizz, so when my hair is really dry I need additional styling products or I swap to another shampoo temporarily, but I always come back to this one because my hair is so thin and fine and flat that i's the only shampoo that helps.
The only negative is the floral smell, w...Read More
Feeling thickerI've been using this for 2 weeks now and my hair is feeling thicker after using this. It smells really amazing and carries through the whole day. I have very thin hair naturally so this shampoo has made me feel more confident.
Great productAmazing product so far and definitely does what it says making the hair plumper already
Great productHave only used the product for 2 weeks so far and already seeing a fuller appearance to my hair, looking forward to seeing what it’s ljke after continuous use.
one of the best shampoosI love this shampoo because it smells amazing. I have a long thick mane (nearly touching my bottom) I usually go through shampoo quite fast. However, I was able to stretch this one for quite some time. As for plumping it doesn't work well for me. I might owe that to the natural weight of my hair. I have a thick head of hair but very fine strands. It also doesn't leave harsh residue on my scalp. I...Read More
Yes yes yes!Smells great? Tick.
Thickens my hair? Yep.
Cruelty free and uses natural ingredients. Yes!
I consider myself now saved from my thin hair thanks to Plumping wash. Struggled to find something just as good. My hair also lasts longer between washes now, and doesn't seem to get as oily.
The cute pink bottle is a bonus!
Hello Body!I’m always trying to find something that adds volume and helps prevent thinning and this wash is lovely. It smells great and doesn’t dry my hair out like others do.
Leaves your hair fresh for longer!This shampoo is the best I have tried so far. I previously had to wash my hair every 2-3 days now can last 6-7 days without becoming oily.
Although it is more expensive than most shampoo's you only need a tiny amount of product and you wash your hair less often.
greatThis is so much better than the maxi wash IMO. Volume without grit, and doesn't knot up my long hair. Love it.
KEVIN.MURPHY Plumping.Washlovely shampoo...smell is divine...however not sure on the plumping part...not really...however has improved condition of my hair...
Shine, shine, shine!This shampoo makes my hair so shiny and soft to touch! I bought it for the volumising factor but so far I'm even more impressed with the shine! I have healthy hair but it never seems to get that nice shine to it no matter what products I use. But this gives it to it! Gives the hair a nice plump texture, definitely notice a difference from other shampoos. Would repurchase!
LOVE LOVE LOVE!I adore this product! Not only does it smell absolutely amazing but it leaves my hair clean and plumped!
Lathers up really nicely and makes my hair soft and smooth, very happy with the results!
Lovely ShampooI really like the Kevin Murphy range - smells nice and works well.
I use the Plumping Range quite regularly as I am concerned about hair-loss, not sure what's causing it (probably stress!) but I am over hand-fulls of the stuff falling out when I was or brush my hair.
The Plumping Wash in conjunction with the Plumping Rinse and Body Mass Spray seem to be slowing down the rate at which h...Read More
pair with the rinse and spray for best resultsI have fine hair and I loved using this product for the feel and smell, however it was until I looked back on photographs of my hair while using this product and it was much fuller and thicker than ever. I was surprised how well this product worked to make my hair healthy. This product did wonders for my hair and scalp and I will purchase again.
This worksOkay so firstly the smell is a little odd, it kinda smells like mens cologne. However it doesnt bother me that much, it dissipates quite quickly.
I was skeptical at first, I have had hair loss since my 2nd baby and I'd be constantly pulling out hide chunks of hair every wash. One week in I've noticed an increase in my hairs thickness and I seem to have less hair loss.
My hair is very s...Read More
LovelyI have fine hair but a lot of it. I’m always trying to find something that adds volume and helps prevent thinning and this wash is lovely. It smells great and doesn’t dry my hair out like others do, but most of all I’ve notice less hair loss since I’ve started using this product.
Great productThis is I think my fourth bottle now. After my second child my hair became lifeless, brittle and extremely weak, I actually thought I was going to become bald. I would find strands of my hair everywhere. Every time I vacuum the house, it would fill with clumps of my hair...pretty gross. One day I decided to treat myself with a cut and wash at a fancy hair salon and they recommended this brand to m...Read More
Effective ProductThis was my first time trying out a KM product and what I loved about this shampoo, was it's scent! It was also very gender neutral and worked well for my partner's hair as well.
In regards to actually 'plumping' your hair, personally it made my thin hair, frizzy versus fuller. However, my partner who has thick hair, found that this shampoo made his hair a lot more luscious.
Great product - great brand!I started using this wash and rinse after using the Hydrate Me range from Kevin Murphy, I loved the Hydrate Me and this is great too! I have medium-fine hair and find this makes my hair feel thicker but doesn’t strip or dry out my hair at all. I love Kevin Murphy products and don’t think I’ll ever use another brand! I particularly love the 500ml limited edition bottles when they are available - gr...Read More
Best for thin flat hairI have a thin and flat hair - using this plumping shampoo gives my hair volume and thicken the hair - love the product the best
Best for volumeThis is one of my all time favorite products. My hair is very flat and dry so i love combining this shampoo with kevin murphys hydrating rinse. Seriously the perfect pair for anyone with the same problem. This gives you such a nice lift and makes your hair feel airy. Higly recommend!
Great for fine hairI have fine hair and find this product to be the best for volumising.
it's okay...Not a miracle worker. I enjoy using this as it makes my hair feel clean but not stripped squeeky... but in terms of 'plumping'..I haven't noticed any difference from my old shampoo. My hair is pretty fine, so it would take a miracle to make it look plump, this isn't it.
5 STARS!Oh gosh, I am in love with this shampoo. I was using a moisture shampoo in my blonde hair and I was finding I was needing to wash my hair almost every day. It was going very oily in the roots. I sent my hairdresser a message and she said it would be due to the moisture shampoo I was putting on my roots & that it was weighing my hair down (it always looked so flat!). She suggested KEVIN.MURPHY Plum...Read More
just what I wantedI purchased both the shampoo and conditioner. My hair is going back in masses . It is in great condition and smells amazing. A bit pricey but I got the results I was after!
don’t like this shampooAs a serious lover of angel wash I thought I would give this a try for a change on my fine hair, and I am sorry to say I am disappointed greatly in this shampoo. Firstly it smells gross, like a really cheap men’s cologne, a strong scent which is hard to ignore. Secondly it does nothing special for my hair at all except make it super limp and full of static. If ur thinking of trying I wouldn’t reco...Read More
Actually works!I have fine, damaged hair and I have experienced hair loss on occasion over the years. I was recommended this product by a hair dresser who said he had witnessed first hand hair regrowth after continued use of this product. He was right ! I have been using this wash for 2 years and it has definitely helped my hair growth alone with plumping the fine strands to increase fullness.
Actually does what the label says!!This product is Amazing!
I have thinning, straight, fine hair. As I've gotten older, my hair has gotten thinner and more lacklustre.
I was recommended this product by a qualified hairdresser, who knows my hair well.
After about 4 weeks of using every second day (along with the Plumping Rinse), I was seeing noticeably more new hair and my hair was noticeably thicker.
I have...Read More
works for meI bought this as my hairdresser recommended it and I love it. I feel I can go an extra day or two without washing because the volume means my hair sits slightly above my scalp instead of on it with all the natural oils. I find the smell nice and clean.
Small differenceI have used this now for about a month and have noticed a small difference in the thickness of my hair. At times in seems to weigh my hair down though, but my hair does feel strong and shiny. Not sure if I can justify the price for such a small bottle though. Will continue to use and hopefully see more results.
I can't get past the smellI love Kevin Murphy products and thought I would give this one a try as I have quite thin hair. It's lovely to use and leaves my hair feeling really nice. BUT. The smell is horrible. It smells like a terrible mans aftershave and it lingers throughout the day. If you can get past the smell it's good to go, but I won't be purchasing this one again. I'll stick with my regular KM instead.
Not worth tryingAs a pricey product it wasn’t worth trying. After washing was ok but in the following day made my hair greasy on the roots
Worth the moneyI was recommended this product after experience post natal hair loss. It is a lot more money than I would normally spend, but well worth it. It leaves my hair soft and fuller. It definitely gets me more time between washes, which has reduced the damage to my hair from drying and straightening.
Simply the bestSimply the best shampoo especially if your hair is thinning out. Highly recommended!
Smells like heavenAbsolutely LOVE LOVE LOVE this product. It smells like heaven and makes my hair so soft and plump after every wash.
The best shampoo ever for volumising thinning hairI'm obsessed with this range of shampoo and conditioners. I've been using the Kevin Murphy plump it range for about 4 years now and was introduced to it by my hairdresser - it has completely changed my hair for the better. My hair was becoming lank and thinning out majorly - there's nothing more terrifying then brushing your hair and seeing massive clumps of hair in your brush!
God send!I purchased this shampoo about 3 years ago on a whim.
I am so happy I did. Due to stress my hair thinned out a few years ago and this has absolutely saved me. My hair is no longer thin and flat, it feels plump and healthy and absolutely so much easier to work with! Everyone needs to try, even just for the gorgeous scent- it’s delicious!
Worth every centI purchased this because of the amazing aroma, smells absolutely divine. I have thin, flat hair and this shampoo is perfect for thickening and giving a bit of lift / volume at the roots. Now, this bottle of shampoo lasted me NINE MONTHS. So any comments on here complaining about the cost - ignore them. This works out crazy cheap as I was using approx 10 cent piece size twice every second day. So w...Read More
a touch expensive but smells so goodMy hair is thin and i don't have a lot of it, so i'm always on the hunt for a good volumising shampoo. I've tried many and i don't really think this is a stand out, but i'll continue to buy it because it makes my hair feel really nice, doesn't weight my hair down and it smells good. Like next level good. I've never had a shampoo that other people have commented on so much about how good it smells....Read More
Good product but you pay for itSmells great, gave me great volume - but not significantly better than other, much cheaper volumising shampoos. I used with the Rinse as well, and have to say, I could have saved the money for a similar result. Smells great - I got compliments on that!
Good but expensive for what it isI have fine + oily hair and while found this product helped with volume, it didn't help with oil control. I don't dislike it, I just think it's not the best value for money.
Double edged swordThis shampoo is actually so effective, that I had to stop using it! I have a lot of fine hair, and this shampoo built volume so well that my hair was getting far too thick and full for my hairstyle. Would definitely recommend this to someone with thin or thinning hair! Great brand, great products.
Couldn't live without it!This is my favourite shampoo of all time. This really helps plump up my hair and add volume - I've never used a product quite like it! I use it with the conditioner every couple of days and I've noticed a real difference.
Could not be without this range.I have noticed a positive improvement in my very fine baby hair, my hairdresser agrees that there is an improvement in volume and less breakage. The smell is divine and, although expensive, the Kevin Murphy Plumping Range is worth ever penny. Luckily, not much product is need.
The smell!I have been purchasing this product for years now and continue to love it. I have fine blonde hair and use the Plumping Wash and Blonde Rinse. This product in particular has the most amazing smell!
does the job but you need to use alotmy hair is very thin.. it is also oily at roots and dry ends. bad combo. I purchased this product with the rinse as well. its been working so far and makes my hair smell amazing, reminds me of going to the hairdressers. in terms of pricing, you pay a lot for the amount given. the bottles are quite small and you need to use a fair bit of shampoo to get that foaming going. i personally like to see a...Read More
My favourite hair product!I have naturally straight hair that dries plain and dull! This product gives my hair a slight bit of extra volume when i was it without making it feel thick and heavy. Honestly the best if you want a little bit more volume without applying ridiculous amounts of product after a wash. It smell AMAZING and is cruelty free too!
Luxurious salon quality hair duoI have thin but curly hair that goes flat on the top and puffy out at the bottom! I always want volume volume volume. This shampoo and conditioner defined my curls and gave more bounce! It has a sweet unique smell not overpowering but if you do not like it it may be hard to move past it as it is still quite lingering. I always get complimented on how lovely I smell though and I dont wear perfume s...Read More
Great resultsI used the Kevin Murphy Plumping Range when I was losing my hair due to stress. After around a month my hair stopped falling out at an alarming rate. It was a huge relief. I have fine hair, and need something that is moisturizing but also lightweight. The Plumping wash was perfect for my hair. I would use it every 2-3 days, and always washed my hair twice with it. You don't need a lot - a little g...Read More
That smell though!!!I've been using this shampoo for a good few months due to the good reviews it's got. I was on the pill which started to make my hair fall out. It was amazingly stressful to watch your hair go from big, long, bouncy hair to flat and lifeless.
I was pretty desperate to find something to get my old hair back!

LovelyI bought this for my partner who has a family history of hair loss. It actually contains an ingredient that studies show promotes hair regeneration. He doesn’t yet have any hair loss so we can’t really say that it works. But it does smell really nice and his hair (and mine) feels so soft and bouncy after using it.
Smells great but not sure if I'd purchase againI didn't really notice much thickening happening but I did notice my hair was growing fast!
It smells amazing (to me) and I love how I can smell it for even 4-5 days after I wash it.
Thoroughly cleanses my hair too!
I will probably buy it again after trying something new.
worth the pricei've tried a few of the kevin murphy range and this by far is my fav. i have super fine thinning hair and after a few washes i could already see the difference in volume. repeat buyer.
nice but overpricedI received a sample of this shampoo and conditioner with a purchase. This shampoo was really nice and left my hair feeling soft and thick. I wasnt a fan of the smell however, and it was very strong. I would like to continue using this range, but cannot justify the price. If the price isnt an issue, I would recommend trying this for anyone who wants to add volume to their hair.
Excellent ShampooI have very fine hair and this shampoo really helps give it body. I don't use anything else.
Highly impressedI have fine long wavy colored hair and very sensitive scalp. About 12 months ago a lot of my hair fell out due to an allergic reaction so I’m keen to encourage it to grow back.
Having used several high-end (pricey!) brands which are sulfate and paraben free, I’m used to my hair feeling dry afterwards and also frizzy so I have to use additional conditioning and smoothing products. This shamp...Read More
