Combining advanced scientific knowledge with the very best natural ingredients, KEVIN.MURPHY products provide the tools to recreate high-fashion runway looks in the salon and at home, while always remaining kind to the environment. A powerhouse of antioxidants from natural sources such as Kakadu Plum, Orchid, Lotus Flower and Desert Lime, help to reduce breakage and assist in repairing the look and feel of chemically damaged hair.

The Choices We Make
At KEVIN.MURPHY, we care about the environment and make every effort to lessen our impact. Creating products with a conscience that are both kind to the hair and to the environment has been our guiding principle from the very beginning. Every product is formulated with natural ingredients from sustainable and renewable sources that are harvested in an environmentally responsible way. We use packaging that is recyclable wherever possible. Our sleek, modern, square bottles aren’t just uniquely designed for looks—they actually hold more product while using less plastic.
Our passion for protecting the environment goes beyond just our products and packaging. From collaborating with Al Gore in the Climate Reality Project, to donating to the Australian Conservation Foundation and supporting environmentally focused charities through THE HEART OF KEVIN.MURPHY, we continue to be part of the global solution for change.
We also love our furry friends and will never harm nor test on animals. At KEVIN.MURPHY, THE CHOICES WE MAKE maintain our commitment to the environmental issues that affect us all.
Healthy hair begins with a healthy scalp. Treat it as you would your skin and take your scalp to the spa with a luxurious blend of skin-loving ingredients like Micelles, Celery Seed Extract and Rose Water—all hand-picked for their abilities to help soothe, balance and retain moisture for optimal scalp health.
“With the new SCALP regimen, I sought to create products that address many of our scalp needs. These star products are packed with a range of skin loving ingredients that nurture the scalp back to health, giving your hair radiant results. A clean, healthy scalp is important to ensuring the health and growth of your hair.”
Create the perfect blowout EVER-y time. Our remarkable product EVER.SMOOTH started a BLOW.DRY revolution with an entire line of EVER products, each designed with specific hair goals in mind. Thanks to our cutting-edge cross-polymer technology, these results-driven formulas cut blow dry time and guard against humidity and frizz to seal in a flawless style that lasts.
“Our new Wood Bark Complex found in EVER.SMOOTH is a blend of Blue and White Cypress with Lemon Aspen. Selected for their high Antioxidant content, they harness nature’s regenerative properties and act much like natural AHAs. These sustainably harvested and indigenously sourced native trees can survive the harsh Australian climate, and our blend harnesses their ability to withstand intense heat to help your hair survive the most extreme and damaging heat styling techniques including blow drying.”

From moulding pastes, to styling clay and sculpting gel, these formulas are tailor-made to give you the control you need and the texture you crave.
Give hair and scalp a much-needed DETOX. Wash away unwanted mineral and product buildup while a stimulating blend of Camphor, Bergamot, Mint and Black Pepper invigorate, strengthen and revitalise the hair and scalp.
From creamy to platinum, to yellowed or grey, no blonde is left un-toned thanks to a restorative blend of Optical Brighteners, Lavender and Jojoba Seed Oil.
While on a shoot in Malaysia at the height of the smoothing craze, a wave crashed into the set, giving Kevin the idea to scrunch a mixture of eyeshadow and hair gel into the model’s hair. With this new form of texture, Kevin was named the creator of the beach wave by Vogue Magazine, and HAIR.RESORT was born. Infused with Honey and Citrus Oils, our line of TEXTURE products create sexy, surfer texture to give you the iconic beach hair look that Kevin is renowned for.

Tahitian Gardenia and Murumuru, Shea and Mango Butters help moisturise, smooth and de-frizz to refine thick, coarse hair, leaving it silky soft and extremely touchable.
“When developing SMOOTH.AGAIN, I looked to ingredients that would treat and improve the hair, deliver long-term conditioning benefits and also be effective in high temperatures. A carefully selected blend of 6 highly beneficial Australian Fruit Extracts (Desert Lime, Australian Round Lime, Illawarra Plum, Australian Finger Lime, Burdekin Plum and Kakadu Plum) were chosen for their resilience to harsh climate conditions and their hydrophilic properties.”

Imagine the halcyon days of summer, the scent of flowers in full bloom, the sound of bees humming around them, and the dappled light piercing the vines that surround a charming Italian villa. This is VELVET.FLORA. Our collection was inspired in part by The Roses of Heliogabalus, painted in 1888 by Anglo-Dutch artist Sir Lawrence Alma-Tadama, that depicts the young Roman Emperor Heliogabalus hosting a decadent banquet with guests immersed in drifts of petals.
“Movement that appears natural can be very hard to achieve, and even harder to maintain. It’s not as simple as just leaving your hair to air dry. Great looking natural hair always comes down to your product choice.”
