“ Brand: 3 More Inches by Michael Van Clarke / Type: Hair Treatment / What it does: Repairs, Smoothes, Cleanses, Protects „
I have been trying to grow my hair for years and have tried various products/vitamins, you name it I've tried it. However when I came across this I was slightly intrigued as it doesn't claim to produce 'miraculous effects' but simply 'grow your hair by 3 more inches' which seemed more realistic.
I did exactly what was instructed. Apply the pre-wash treatment to dry hair, every 2nd wash, and leave for 1 hour or more. I rinsed it off in the shower and I then used the shampoo which was very easy to lather, no more than a 50p piece size was needed. You may need to use quite a lot of conditioner as I found it was quite hard to distribute. And I by no means have long hair, it just reaches my shoulder. This meant that my conditioner ran out fairly quickly and I then had to purchase another bottle.
After I washed my hair I did my usual styling routine. I blow dried it, but found that my hair was slightly fluffy. After I had blow dried I proceeded to straighten my hair. My hair felt very clean and was very shiny, but it had also became drier than usual. This made it quite hard to brush as I noticed some of the ends of my hair had become knotted.
However, when I used the product again, this time without the pre-wash treatment. I found that my hair was incredibly soft and there was no knots or tangles in sight. It had a lovely shine to it and it felt stronger.
After a few weeks of using the Michael van Clarke 3 More Inches products I had definitely noticed an improvement in the length of my hair. It was not dramatically different, but around half an inch of growth. I think that with out the pre-wash treatment, this could do wonders to hair. It is slightly pricey though, I paid £68 for the box set which included the pre-wash treatment, shampoo and conditioner. However they are available to buy separately for around £20 each.
