KMS Add Volume Shampoo* has been my go to for 'nights out' (and by nights out I mean any occasion where I want my hair to look fabulous!) since I went to an event with them in December last year. We can blame the Christmas festivities for getting in the way at the time. Excuses aside having repurchased a bottle - from Homesense no less - at the weekend before I've even finished this bottle I thought it was definitely time to put a blog post together.
KMS California is a brand, that like me you might have heard of but don't really know. My familiarity with it was from salon visits but you can now by online from the likes of Feel Unique. At the event I attended we were taken on KMS California's journey beginning in the 70s to present day featuring many new innovative products and repackaging.
We were then able to talk to the experts about our hair needs and they helped put together some personalised products for us. I discussed my preference for volume and was given KMS California AddVolume Shampoo* and KMS California AddVolume Body Build Detangler* a leave-in conditioner. The shampoo provides body and fullness my often limp hair is given a necessary boost which is wanted for those nights out - especially ones that follow a day in the office. This was also my first foray into a leave in conditioner and with greasy roots I was curious to see whether it would work for me. You simply spray onto your towel dried hair and carry on as normal, it's brilliant and doesn't weigh my hair down at all. Even better it cuts down time washing your hair in the shower.
The next product I was able to take home and try was the KMS California FreeShape 2-in-1 styling and finishing spray*. I use this sporadically depending on my needs. Designed to be used on dry hair before you're using hot tools it's perfect when you're adding some curls. I vary between spraying in the sections as advised and just doing an all over job. More often than not I'll use as the final set after styling or blow drying my hair to keep the style in place without weighing it down or making it dry as hairsprays can do.
Finally was a fantastic product for protecting hair from frizz, KMS California HairSTay Anti-Humidity Seal*. Whilst I'm lucky my hair doesn't get too frizzy the London Underground has it's frizz inducing moments. A spray on dry hair before I leave the house and I'm good to go.
Overall this is a great brand and one I'll continue to use for a long time. If you want to look for your perfect products just check out the website. There's something for everyone.
