Social media is regularly the culprit for new hair trends. And the latest is liquid hair. If you haven’t heard of liquid hair, it is a term used to describe an ultra-glossy hair look. The look is achieved with specialized treatments and hair products—typically serums, oils or sprays that contain ingredients that smooth down the hair cuticle and reflect light.
The liquid hair trend is all about achieving a shiny, almost reflective finish that's reminiscent of wet-look hair but less weighed down. Unlike traditional wet-look styles, which can leave hair looking greasy or weighed down, liquid hair treatments and products are formulated to give hair a weightless, bouncy feel.
At the salon, ask for a gloss treatment. This can come with demi-permanent dye deepening your hair colour and adding intense shine. A gloss treatment can also be clear and simply adds a glossy finish. Or, try our Kevin Murphy Treat.Me treatment. This salon-exclusive option detoxifies the hair then delivers deep conditioning for stronger, shinier locks. It’s a great choice for those who want the liquid look but are dealing with damage and dryness.
To keep that glossy look, try these products. As with all beauty brands, not all liquid hair products are created equal. Luckily the products we carry are as gentle on your hair and health as they are on the environment:

Now that you have the products in hand, the application is key. The liquid hair trend works for all hair types, from fine and straight to thick and curly.
To achieve the liquid hair look, start by applying a small amount of your chosen liquid hair product, focusing on the mid-lengths and ends. Use your fingers or a wide tooth comb to distribute the product evenly throughout your hair.
Once you've applied the product, you can style your hair. The liquid hair trend works well with a variety of styles. While the original trend started with stick-straight styles on celebrities like Kim Kardashian and Jennifer Lopez, we love shiny curls and waves, too. Whatever style you choose, the key is to keep your hair looking glossy and reflective.
Whether you opt for a lightweight oil like Kevin Muphy Young Again or a leave-in conditioner like Fast Food Leave-in Conditioner these liquid hair products can help to smooth down the hair cuticle and reflect light, giving you a weightless, bouncy feel. So, if you're looking for a new way to amp up your hair game, give the liquid hair trend a try and let us know how it works for you.
