The slight damp in the air is causing untold woe in frizz terms – I’d almost rather be fully rained on when at least my hair would turn to proper curls than the relentless wet atmosphere that expands my newly straightened hair until it is literally a ball of frizz on my head. Having tried most of the serums – some good, some not so, for my particular hair type, I’m reaching for more extreme measures. Kevin Murphy’s Leave-In Luxury Conditioner is something of a surprise. Leave-ins that I’ve tried in the past have been far too weighty but this one has the balance right. Silk proteins give a softening effect while Mango butter deter the onward march of fuzzing up hair shafts. It’s exactly the correct weight to work effectively but without leaving hair looking dull and heavy with product.
