Hair Routine with Michael van Clarke, 3”’ More Inches

One more time I want to share with you some hair products that worked very well on my VERY complicated hair, very few products manage to work with my long wild hair so I truly love to write and recommend them because if it worked for me, it would work for anyone. Today I want to share my experience using 3”’ More Inches the hair products from the famous Londoner hair dresser Michael van Clarke.The routine is very simple, in this opportunity I didn’t include any treatment or mask.



‘The world is full of fake moisturising shampoos and conditioners, that simply use silicone to give the appearance of health. Silicone acts like cling film on the hair, making it appear smooth and shiny but offering no health benefits. Silicone does not moisturise but actually repels natural moisture and dries hair out. Over time hair becomes thinner, more brittle, frizzier and harder to manage.’

I do work in industry and I do know that silicone are alright in very limited use, but is true that if you use hair products with silicones all the time you would be cheating yourself about having a healthy hair. The Cashmere Protein Moisturising Shampoo is special for dry, coarse or coloured hair. Having myself such a dry hair and even knowing that silicone are not a real solution I tend to use products with it because it’s the only way to keep my hair in a proper shape, but with this shampoo I got a good surprise, it really leaves my hair and scalp clean for several days, while I’m washing I can actually feel my hair getting softer and when I comb it to apply the conditioner i have basically no knots, I do not feel it dry like sometimes happen when I use some silicone free shampoos. Also with very little amount I can wash properly my long and very abundant hair, so I really like that.

Sometimes a good conditioner can easily replace a hair mask or hair treatment cream probably this is the case,One of my bigger sins is to apply too much conditioner over my hair to “get” a better result, after the shampoo I try to get the hair as drier as I can then comb it to get rid of the knot and apply little amount from medium to ends, do a high knot with all my hair at let it work while i wash and exfoliate my body then I rinse it off, that is more than enough to get a lovely soft, silky frizz free hair, really loved how the Cashmere Protein Moisturising Conditioner.

The Volumising Mousse smooths coarse hair and thickens fine hair giving brilliant control and finish to all hair types. No brittle or sticky after effects. I normally don’t use any sort of mouse or spray as I do have a lot of hair and volume, but for certain looks I end up need it, most i just do not like the texture or the grease some of them leave but this one worked pretty well without leaving that awful feeling when you touch your hair after applying it.

I have never paid attention to the brushes I was using for my hair and chances are that I have been destroying it by using the wrong ones,  So I was quite glad when I tried the No 1 Brush and that Christopher tried to steal for himself.

Handmade, using pins made from Japanese nylon, these super smooth, flexible bristles have been designed to minimise stress to the delicate hair shaft, helping to maintain healthier and thicker hair. It does not pull or tug, which means brushing and detangling with no snapping or breaking. It is so gentle that in recent tests it was found to be an ideal solution to brushing children’s hair. So, for those looking for a multi-purpose brush that is kind to hair without compromising style.

This brush is one of the very few that didn’t damage or create more frizz on my hair after using it, that’s why I really like it and I recommend it not only for thick hair but also for thinner ones.

I really loved my experience using 3”’ More inches, they are products that really worth the money and created by someone who actually know the major problems with hair not only on an aesthetic way but also in a healthy way, totally recommend them!

Love xoxo
