This is a review of Nicky Clarke Instant Calmer, a sleek, soften and shine balm for hair. It was one of the items in my fabulous beauty advent calendar that I had before Christmas.
This product looks really expensive in its black tube with gold lettering. It has a screw top and sits on its head.
The product is clear and looks a bit like hair gel when it comes out of the tube. You only need a small amount to work through damp hair. The product contains Vanilla and Sandalwood so smells really nice and perfumed and lovely in your hair when it is dried. Next step is to comb through to distribute the product evenly. I finish off with a blow dry after using this product and find it does make my hair more manageable and less knotty. You can also use this on dry hair, a bit like a serum but I have only used it in the washing and drying process as I find products on my hair when it is dry make it a bit heavy and don't seem to sink in as well as when used on damp hair.
I have quite straight hair anyway but it can get very tangled and knotty so I am always on the look out for a product which will help with this. Having said that, I don't always have a lot of time to faff with my hair and blow drying is not always an option so sometimes it has to be a quick wash and be left to dry naturally so I don't tend to use this product when I am rushing. I love the scent of it and the results and would like my hair to look this good all the time so maybe I should make more time!
This product can be bought on Amazon in 100ml for £9.55 (with free p&P). This size of tube would literally last me months so I don't think that is bad value for money. I have noticed a lot of people trying to locate this product online but I think it has sort of been relaunched since so should be easier to find now.
The fragrance is the best part of this product, second in line to results. It is a salon worthy product that can be used at home and I can see why a lot of people are raving about it online, I agree it is a wonder product and does work well on my hair, which is a lot calmer now (!). I would be happy to buy this product again in the future.
