Dry Shampoo -KMS California -Hair Play Makeover Spray

on 5/16/2018 4:52:00 AM


My favourite dry shampoo. Gets rid of oily roots, adds texture and volume, and adds a fresh scent. I feel it works better and faster and has the least white cast on dark hair of all the dry shampoos I've tried. The volume lasts into the next day, and it doesn't make my scalp feel slightly itchy like other dry shampoos do.

I find it lasts twice as long as Batiste so its good value. Full price is $25 here in New Zealand but I brought mine on sale at $8. Batiste I've only got on sale once for $5 as it was dented, but it usually retails for $12 - $15.

The scent has won me over as well. Clean soft floral with a hint of fresh mint and liquorice? Anyway, it really is lovely and I've had compliments. Batiste has more scents but apart from the Cherry and the Rose Gold one, I find most of them they are too juvenile. So sickly sweet they make me feel as if I'm about 10. Not a good impression for dates, work, or other times when I need to concentrate, so I'm using up Batiste Cherry/Rose working out at the gym. KMS is the one I wear the rest of the time, like to work or anywhere at all I want to feel the best! Will repurchase.

Styling Products -KMS California -Hair Play Molding Paste

on 4/19/2018 10:38:00 AM


This is an amazing matte molding paste if you have a short pixie like me. I would qualify the hold as medium but you can play in your hair all day long and it will always look "messy-perfect". the smell is gender-neutral and subtle (i hate buying men products that smell like cheap cologne....) so that's also a +
it's it kind of expensive if you're on a budget but it's worth it because you don't need much each time. I am not sure that the pump is gonna hold, i heard some people had issues with it.
But other than than it's a fantastic product!

Shampoo -KMS California -Color Vitality Shampoo

on 4/15/2018 9:19:00 PM

Okay so this review is for the KMS color vitality blonde shampoo:
Blah, I wanted to love this shampoo as my salon switched to mostly kms products BUT it did virtually nothing for my blonde hair. The colour was a super light lilac, so next to no pigment to reverse any brass tones. I found this actually really heavy, and TOO moisturizing for my hair type. My hair was flat and borderline greasy after every use. I had to switch this out with a volumizing shampoo every other day. It did smell really great though!
I would recommend this for someone who has extremely dry hair and scalp, otherwise not at all, there are way better products for the price.

Styling Products -KMS California -Hair stay anti humidity spray

on 7/24/2017 10:56:00 PM

I have naturally curly hair that I where in a straight style. This summer we have had swampy, hot days and nights where as soon as my hair is done, it starts to expand and frizz out. I bought this product as a last resort and am really happy with it. Today was another high humidity day with rain. On my way to work, I put the car windows down to test the product and have enjoyed smooth, frizz free hair all day. I don't know that I'll be able to test out the product's 72 hour claim since I wash my hair every other day, but, so far so good.

Styling Products -KMS California -Hair Play Dry Wax

on 10/13/2016 10:11:00 AM

My Hair - Short and shaggy/piecy style, longer on the crown and short around along the neck. Straight hair. Hair texture is fine, not heavy.

Product and Usage - Aerosol spray wax. Mild, pleasant aroma. While my hair is damp and before blow drying, I spritz lightly in areas that need more styling control. A light spray of this stuff can be used to give my hair more texture or piecey look. Washes out easily. I wonder if this replaces (or is the same formula as) the discontinued KMS California Hair Play Paste Up Spray.

PROS - Great for styling control, for clumpy textured piecy look, for final hold. Can be applied to damp or dry hair. No residual stickiness or greasy feeling - it's like I'm not even wearing any product. Leaves hair feeling soft and with natural movement. Texture can be refreshed with damp hands if needed.

CONS - My only complaint is that at 4.6 oz, it isn't an air-travel carry-on-friendly size. :)

Overall - Fantastic, versatile product for textured hairstyles. continued >>
