Since launching his debut haircare line 3″ More Inches two years ago, It Brit hairstylist Michael Van Clarke has had a singular vision: to create a line of cleansers and conditioners that would both purify and nourish hair while actually preventing future damage and remedying current damage for thicker, healthier, and in turn longer strands. For his second act, Van Clarke has used the same amino acid-rich cashmere proteins that made his original launch such a success to take the plunge into the challenging world of styling aids. Confounded by the fact that most hair sprays, heat treatments, and volumizers do more harm than good thanks to chemical-ridden, silicone-heavy formulas that actually break down the hair shaft as they set, thicken, and claim to protect it, he has applied his “life-extending haircare” credo to a Volumizing Mousse, Thickening Blow-Dry Spray, and a Holding Spray to ensure that no matter how avant-garde the style, your hair’s overall health is never at risk.

I’m short, and that’s something that will never change. I peaked at a very un-statuesque 5′ 3″ sometime in my early teens, and while I used to wonder if perhaps I was the exception—that I would shoot up like a stalk years after my peers, reaching supermodel stature and defying those silly rules of modern science—it never happened. I’ve come to accept the fact that I’m not going to grow anymore, except in one realm: my hair. Getting a few extra centimeters onto my brown strands still seems within the realm of possibility, and the very straightforwardly named 3 More Inches aims to help achieve this goal. A newly launched line of haircare products from Michael Van Clarke, the famed London stylist to royalty and rock stars, the collection includes a shampoo, conditioner, and a pre-wash treatment that works best when applied to dry hair and left in overnight. All three formulas boast a cocktail of naturally derived cashmere proteins and amino acids to mend, strengthen, and rebuild hair, thus adding volume and length. The results: an envious mane that allows all five feet and three inches of me to walk a little bit taller.
