MICHAEL VAN CLARKE 3 MORE INCHES MAGIC OIL REVIEW*
Hi lovelies! I hope you're all doing well! I'm desperately trying to get back on the blogging bandwagon, as I've been a very busy bee lately. I've got a new job and have been doing lots of freelance beauty therapy and make up (in fact, after finishing this post, I'll be leaving to do make up for a prom party!) so blog posts are taking a little longer to get up, but I'm slowly getting back into the swing of things, so bear with me!
Before I jump into the review of this amazing product, I'm going to give you a bit of background. I recently got my highlights redone and my hairdresser finally convinced me to have an actual haircut. I didn't have a restyle or anything, but I finally agreed to have the dead, split ends cut off. As I used to wear clip in extensions a lot, a lot meaning every single day when I was around 18-19, my hair got quite damaged and broken. While clip ins aren't generally too bad for your hair when worn once in a while, wearing them every day took its toll on my hair, they got tangled and stared to rip my hair. So, when my hair got to a decent length (around 4 inches past my shoulders) I took the plunge and stopped wearing them altogether. Anyway, long story short, I let my hair grow and grow, but the broken bits at the back where splitting where they were damaged, so I ended up with a very obvious shorter section at the back of my hair. So, we cut the dead ends off and evened my hair up, so it's more blunt and healthy looking at the ends. It was only and inch or two off and my hair is still a good 5 or 6 inches below my shoulders, but any amount off the ends freaks me out so it was a big deal for me!
After vowing to keep my hair as strong and healthy as possible, I was thrilled to be given the chance to review this 'magic oil' by Michael Van Clarke. I absolutely love hair oils, but most of them are packed full of silicones and chemical nasties that make your hair look and feel amazing, but slowly overtime, can actually be damaging to your hair. So, when I read about the product and found that it had no silicone, parabens or other damaging ingredients, just lots of nourishing natural oils, I jumped at the chance to give it a go.
I've been using the product every time I wash my hair, applying it before blow drying when my hair is still damp, then also using a tiny amount on dry hair to smooth the ends and tame fly-aways. I've honestly been blown away by the difference it has made to my hair already. Even my friends and family have said my hair has been looking much healthier lately and while I know the cut has a lot to do with it, I think this has also much a huge difference. My hair feel stronger and smoother and unlike other similar products such as Morrocan Oil, the smooth feeling doesn't go away when I wash it out, which can be the case with a lot of silicone based products. I feel like this oil really soaks into my hair, rather than just sitting on top of it. I've found my hair breaks a lot less when I brush it since using this too, which is fab.
Honestly, I don't think I've ever found a hair product I would recommend as strongly as this one. Not only will it make your hair look and feel fab, it actually nourishes your hair at the same time, no nasty, drying chemicals here!
