The 411 of Cruelty-Free Hair Care

Shannan Boccignone

At Allen James Salon, we are committed to a profession that honors integrity within our products, practices, and those affected by it. When we discovered Australian hair care line Kevin Murphy, we were instantly amazed at the mindful practices behind their business. When we learned how great their products worked too, it was a one-way trip into our stations and retail shelves.

KM's core values of performance, strength, and longevity cross over from product to lifestyle. All ingredients are sourced using micro-cultivation, organic growing practices, and mindful harvesting techniques to extract the best of the best without sacrificing ecological character. Each product is carefully crafted without sulphates, parabens, or animal testing. Did we mention they smell amazing? Plus, the packaging looks great on your bathroom counter and in your shower caddy. 

Our stylists at Allen James have experimented with the entire product line, and we came up with a list of our Top 3 Favorite Products:

  1. Young Again - This weightless treatment oil is a weightless, post-wash dream. Immortelle, kemon oil, and camellia sinensis leaf extract pack antioxidants for anti-aging benefits that stop damage and prevent breakage. Burdock Root and Safflower Seed Oils boost body and shine while smoothing and softening the feel and appearance of your hair. Apply to freshly-washed hair before styling products and create a powerful palette to any desired look. 
  2. Fresh Hair - A dry shampoo for the 21st century, indeed. This baby is said to remove all your sins from the night before. It is a must-apply when you wake up with limited time and still need to look your best. Remove odor, freshen up, and eliminate excess product from the last night's style. Apply by shaking well first, then spray evenly onto dry hair and work through from roots to ends. Brush the product through and your back to Square One. 
  3. Angel Wash & Rinse - We are all guilty of over processing our hair. Whether you've gone from black to blonde or been a little to heat-style-happy, this shampoo and conditioner combo is perfect for traumatized hair. Prevent color loss, protect against environmental damage, and shield against UVA rays to keep hair's defense strong against the elements. Enjoy volume, thickening, and a bath of antioxidants. Apply Angel Wash to wet hair and massage from scalp to ends. Rinse well, and finish with Angel Rinse to maximize all the benefits of this dynamic duo.
