Brand Focus: KMS California Haircare

Sunday, March 22, 2015
I am not very loyal when it comes to haircare, I switch between brands, rarely buying the same product twice as I always like to try new products and usually haircare and styling products never really wow me enough. However, KMS is a brand that I have bought from time and time again over the past couple of years. 

I was recently sent some of their products to try out from the lovely people at and I couldn't wait to start using them! The first product is the *KMS Moist Repair Revival Creme (£12, 125ml) which is a leave in conditioner; it claims to restore moisture balance and improve manageability. I don't like the packaging, I managed to break it first time round. I have been using this product almost every time I wash my hair and it is fantastic. It smells lovely, it doesn't weigh my hair down (unless I use too much) and it helps moisturise and tame my hair. Overall: a great product but the packaging could be much better.

Next up is a product from the KMS Tame Frizz range which I have wanted to try for ages! I have the *KMS Tame Frizz De-Frizz Oil (£10.85, 100ml). I have thick, wavy/curly hair that can be very frizzy; I have a lot of products to help tame the frizz but nothing ever get rid of it completely - low end or drugstore nothing is taming the frizz! The oil is quite thick but when distributed on my palms it turns into a silky thin oil. I have only used it on dry hair so far and it definitely reduces frizz and it makes my hair appear smoother and shiny but not in a greasy way. Overall: a keeper and one to re-purchase. 

Last but not least is the *KMS Curl Up Perfecting Lotion; I am always looking for products to enhance my hairs natural wavy/curly texture and I have tried a lot over the years with very little success. This product worked surprisingly well from the first use even though I did apply too much. I applied two pumps of products to the mid lengths and ends of my hair by scrunching the product in my damp hair. I sleep with my hair wet/damp and in the morning my hair was definitely a bit curlier than usual also the curls were more defined. Overall: definitely worth a try!

I bought a few products from KMS last year including the KMS hot flex spray which I love, the KMS clarifying shampoo which I use one every three/four weeks to make my hair squeaky clean and the KMS curl up conditioner which I used up and I would definitely re-purchase. 

Have you tried any products from KMS? What are your favourite haircare products?


  1. Sounds like a haircare brand that I need to try out!! The de-frizz oil sounds amazing and I'm always too scared to use oil in case it makes my hair greasy so it's great that this one doesn't. I need to try the leave in conditioner too as my hair is in need right now, haha. x x x

  7. These sound perfect for repair and wearing my hair naturally, I hate using heat styling and over processing it but then it goes frizzy so definitely will be checking this out xxx

  8. I haven't tried anything from the KMS range but I really like the sound of the Moist Repair Revival you find you can blow dry your hair fine with this in? I tend to gravitate towards TIGI Bed Head products as they work so well with my hair and smell delicious! :) x
