3''' More Inches?



As a general rule, any form of heat styling, blow-drying or unnecessary dyeing is avoided when possible in an attempt to save my strands, even so, my mid-lengths to ends still tend to snap, leaving me with shorter strays on top and hard-to-tame tufts around the hairline. Quick sidenote: my hair is fine and there's a load of it, I don't deem it overly dry or damaged, but it definitely doesn't let a bit of extra tender loving treatment go amiss given the chance...

After a read-up of mixed reviews and results, from Allure and Grazia Daily included, I took a gamble with 3''' More Inches by Michael Van Clarke Pre-Wash Treatment. Don't let its title trick you into thinking you'll gain 6 months worth of growth in an instant - it's unique cashmere protein and amino acid combo slows down the hair's ageing process, repairs broken bonds, seals split ends, keeps hair healthy and makes managing more easy, all of which, essentially just help it to grow. It's recommended to be used every other wash, and so I take enough pumps to saturate dry hair from root to tip, slick it back, throw on a shower cap, tie round a turbie towel and this little warm wrap will allow the product to penetrate deeper. If I'm up for a pamper, I'll leave it in for a good hour whilst I primp and preen, or overnight when I can for the ultimate intense treatment, before shampooing and conditioning as normal the next day. It's super-size doesn't make it the most travel friendly, but decant it into a container and take it along to the beach or poolside on holiday, apply in the morning, leave in and it'll help protect against sun, sea and chlorine. My only grumble is the scent, its a touch too overpowering for my liking but luckily it doesn't linger in your locks, on the plus side, it is paraben and silicone free - that's what I like to hear!

Almost six weeks after first slathering on the stuff and I can say my hair feels smoother, softer, fuller and thicker, but I'm guessing time will only tell with any major results so I'll keep you in the loop on this one. I picked up the 500ml bulky bottle of Pre-Wash on FeelUnique for £29, which also stocks the other members of the Michael Van Clarke family including a shampoo, conditioner, styling sprays and supplements  Its report to date: scent aside, so far so good - I hear Mills Mackintosh is a fan too (not my reason for purchasing... promise).

  2. I've been looking for this kind of post. I also suffer hair problems similar in to this blog. My hair suffered split ends. My hair is very dry during rainy season and very visible. I am looking for a product that could help restore the natural look of my hair.
