The Nicky Clarke hair care range has recently launched onto Ideal World TV, and to mark the occasion I was sent the Nicky Clarke Volume Kit which contains 3 full-sized volumising products; Volume Shampoo, Volume Conditioner and Hair Raising Thicken and Shine Spray.
Firstly, shall we take a moment to appreciate the gorgeous packaging; isn’t it lovely? I really like the vintage-style, possibly even slightly masculine, apothecary-esque packaging that makes a lovely change to the usual pink and girly products you often find with hair care ranges…not that I have anything against pink and girly (obvs) but this is a lovely looking set! I’ve tried all three products and I’m very impressed – so much so in fact that I’ll be recommending them to my mum who has extremely fine hair.
The shampoo and conditioner provided great volume without that tacky, siliconey feel you often get with volumising products. The shampoo lathered just enough without feeling overly soapy and the conditioner provided a good hit of moisture, although if you like hair to feel slippery and deep conditioner after washing then you won’t find that here. The spray is easy to use and works well at adding an overall thick feeling to hair, and actually quite a bit of root lift too. Tread carefully with the spray as too much can give hair a bit of a greasy finish, but just enough (maybe 3-4 sprays into the roots) works a treat. I like this set very much; I haven’t tried Nicky Clarke products before but I’m definitely a fan as they’re effective, beautifully packaged and they add a little bit of luxury to my shower display. Nicky Clarke will be on Ideal World TV at 3pm, 6pm and 10pm on Wednesday 26th November (today!) if you fancy catching the man in action. The Volume kit can be found here – link – for £34.99 down from £45.
