Highly impressed - 16-01-2018 by

I 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 shampoo and rinse are the opposite. My hair looks and feels soft and smoother, and is already starting to look fuller. Not having to add additional product and have been getting asked if I’ve had my hair done recently. Also importantly, zero scalp irritation. So very happy with this product. For the results, I’m prepared to pay the high price.

Lovely product but not good value - 20-12-2017 by

This shampoo smells great, is lightweight and makes my hair feel a little bit thicker. It's also cruelty free which is wonderful However, it seems to have had a price increase in the last few months (I swear it used to be under $40) and it's not good enough to continue spending this much money on it. I have fine coloured hair that I have to wash every second day. These products haven't made a huge difference to the longevity of my hair between washes, and my hair feels dried out and tangled on the ends by the next day (but that might be how I'm drying my hair because I don't have the same problem when my hairdresser does my hair). I'll be buying something different next time.

Disappointed - 15-08-2017 by

As a new mum, I rarely leave online reviews as I'm too short on time! But, in this instance I was so disappointed after reading the rave reviews and wanted to prevent someone else from wasting their money.

I have fine, straight, medium to long hair. I'm five months post the birth of my first bub and my hair was seriously falling out and suffering from breakage. My bub also enjoys grabbing everything, including fistfuls of my hair! If you are currently in this situation, the shedding and breakage does stop, I promise!).

Once it stopped, I wanted to splurge on a good thickening shampoo & conditioner to try and get some life back into my hair. Unfortunately this product just doesnt come close to delivering what it promises.

Whilst the product leaves my hair soft and manageable, there is no noticeable lift, plumping or volumising from this product - even when you wash your hair twice (which you are instructed to do) - it just wastes product and even more valuable, your time. It leaves my hair flat and dull. The product also has an unpleasant smell. As a long time Aveda user, I'm used to beautiful smelling products, so again this was disappointing given the cost of this product.

If you are a new mum with hair that is rapidly falling out, you might like to try the Evo gluttony range of which I have had some success with a sample (wish I just ordered their full size product in the first place! Doh!) and I would also recommend the Aveda invati range and pure abundance conditioner.

We are now a one income family and unfortunately I've wasted our money on this product that will just sit in the cupboard. Hope others find this helpful.

Smells amazing and smooths everything - 01-08-2017 by

This is by far one of the best shampoos I have ever been able to get my hands on. It smells amazing and gives you a salon finish. I have very thick hair which this shampoo smooths and compliments without added poof. Don't be put off by the name, it doesn't plump the hair into a giant mass, it's plumps the individual strands and makes styling a breeze. Hair doesn't need to be washed nearly as often either, all up, it's amazing!

Great for fine hair! - 26-07-2017 by

I have very fine, bleached hair, with a couple of extensions in the sides. This Shampoo is just great for me! It cleans thoroughly but doesn't dry my hair or my scalp, and as it is sulphate free I can use it with my extensions and I'm not compromising the bond or the hair!

Best I've Ever Used. - 07-06-2017 by

I have baby fine, thin hair and since my hairdresser put me onto the Kevin Murphy plumping range I've not looked back. From the first wash my hair was easier to manage, looked better and has stayed that way. I'm able to continue using this after several bottles and the results are still brilliant.

I need an alcohol free product which this is, it is also sulphate and paraben free. I have no idea what some reviewers are referring to about the fragrance as there is nothing intrusive in either the shampoo or conditioner, in my opinion, and I am extremely sensitive to fragrances.

I always use the plumping rinse with the shampoo and will not be changing any time soon! It is expensive to purchase but economical to use as you need such a small amount. One of the most fabulous products I've ever used.

It Works - 28-05-2017 by

I received this product and its conditioner as a gift with purchase recently. I have fine hair in a pixie cut and I found it worked well for me. My hair felt and looked thicker. To me the scent if fresh and floral.

Stinks and doesn't seem to work on me - 21-06-2016 by

Nothing different to a cheap shampoo

Product works well shame about the smell - 14-03-2015 by

I have fine oily wavy hair and I found that this product delivers on everything it says. My hair is softer, shinier and full of body. The only problem I have is the smell which smells like cheap teenage boy deodorant. The smell lingers for a couple of days. If I can get used to the smell I will purchase again, however so far I have been alternating between other shampoos as I just don't like it. For the price I feel like it should smell much better.

Gives health and body to fine, flat hair - 23-07-2014 by

I have been using Kevin Murphy products for a long time, so am already a fan. I found that after using this shampoo my hair was immediately softer and healthier, and with more body. I have fine, straight and quite flat hair, so this is what I'm always after in a shampoo. I have found that I'm using less additional products since I started using this.

I also recommended this shampoo to my mum, who has similar hair to me that has become very dry and brittle due to medication she is on. She loves it too, and noticed the difference immediately.

Money well spent - 13-07-2014 by

This review is after almost 1 month use of Kevin Murphy Plumping.Wash.

My story: Due to severe stress my long, healthy hair started thinning and absolutely nothing was working at all. For the last month I've been using Kevin Murphy Plumping Wash, together with others in the Plumping range - Kevin Murphy Plumping Rinse and the Body.Mass treatment.

Now, my mid-length hair is softer to touch and looks healthier. There's less hair on the floor, on my clothes and I'm starting to look reasonably normal again. My confidence and anxiety have improved and I'm really, really happy with all three products in the Kevin.Murphy Plumping range.

Excellent! - 05-07-2014 by

I have thin, fine, post-breastfeeding-for -years hair and this product has been the best that I've tried to help thicken up my hair. It works instantly and smells amazing. For the first time ever people have asked ME what I use in my hair! Love it. Expensive but only a tiny amount required so lasts for ages.

Amazing! - 02-07-2014 by

I'm obsessed with this range. I've been colouring my (already thin) hair light blonde for the last 10 years so it's not in great condition. After a few weeks of use of this product, along with the Plumping.Rinse and Body.Mass, I've noticed a real improvement in the condition of my hair. It actually seems thicker and smells amazing too! I've noticed my scalp is a little on the dry side, however the benefit of this is that I'm getting away with an extra day between washes. My partner keeps stealing it when I'm not looking, and I even returned home from work last week to find he'd washed our cat with it (not recommended of course, this shant happen again!). Needless to say the cat smelt amazing and was super fluffly - the Adore Beauty team have seen photo proof!

I want to wash my hair ALL the time - 25-06-2014 by

I love Kevin.Murphy Plumping.Wash!! The smell is amazing but more importantly it does what it says. I have thin shoulder length hair and I love the added texture after a wash.

I also love how my hair is easier to dry and there are less fly-aways. Somehow my hair feels more controllable when blow drying. I love this. I also bought the Kevin.Murphy Plumping.Rinse. Will buy again and again!

Great Product - 25-06-2014 by

I have fine, curly but thinning hair. I was recommend Kevin.Murphy Plumping.Wash by Adore Beauty staff after trying a similar O&M product and they were SPOT ON.

Plumping.Wash doesn't really lather because it's SLS free, so I tend to wash twice, but the end result is great. Fresh, light, hydrated hair that look and feels fuller. I still use the O&M Hydrate and Conquer Conditioner, but try the Plumping.Rinse when it runs out.

In terms of less hair falling out ...not sure as yet, maybe slightly, however I've only been using KM Plumping.Wash for 2 weeks.

Love it. Thank you for the recommendation Adore! I'm keen to read some reviews on the Plumping treatment (Kevin.Murphy Body.Mass) too.

Q & A
1 Question Ask a question
  • From KEVIN.MURPHY Plumping.Wash at 7/09/159:43 AM
    • Q: Is this shampoo suitable for oily hair? I am currently having to wash my hair every day and am looking for a product that will provide volume whilst also controlling oil so that I can cut back on washing.
    • A: Hi there,

      Thanks for your product question. While the Kevin.Murphy Plumping.Wash is ideal for volumising fine hair, Kevin.Murphy Maxi.Wash is a more suitable shampoo for removing excess oil from the scalp.

      I hope this helps. If you have any questions, don't hesitate to contact our customer service team at

      Kind Regards,
