As a not-so-natural blonde, I put my hair through an absolute tonne. Every eight weeks I get my roots covered up, which involves a good whack of bleach and a few hours, and on a daily basis I blow dry and straighten my hair into tidy oblivion. It’s not exactly a routine which inspires great hair health, so I’m big into trying to undo the damage! My newest acquisition is Michael Van Clarke’s 3”’ Pre-Shampoo Treatment – I’ve tried and loved the shampoo and conditioner from the range, and this treatment is really something special!
Using the Pre-Shampoo treatment really couldn’t be easier – just brush your hair and then apply a generous squeeze of the treatment onto your lengths and ends. I also like to concentrate a little of it on my front layers which can tend to get a little dry and whispy if I’ve overdone it with the straighteners. Depending on your level of damage, you can leave the treatment on for anything from an hour to overnight. Once per week I like to go for the overnight option – applying it to my hair, throwing it up in a top knot, then shampooing it out the following morning.
For such an intensive moisture treatment, it has such a lovely lightweight feeling, and hair does feel weighed down, sticky or greasy the next day either. The formula contains cashmere proteins and amino blends which promise to slow down the ageing process of hair, and gives hair a whole lot of bounce and shine. It’s such a handy little product, and it’s perfect if you’re after a little TLC for your hair.
Michael Van Clarke 3”’ Pre-Shampoo Treatment is priced at £9.00 and is available here.
