First Impressions Of IGK Haircare

First Impressions Of IGK Haircare

I first heard of IGK after reading a post by Zoe London who is a blogger I implicitly trust so when I saw her shouting from the rooftops about how great the brand was I knew I had to add them to my list of brands to check out when I hit up Sephora on my trip to New York.

Thankfully though just a month or so after discovering them the brand launched in Space NK which meant that I could nab a few items over here and not have to worry about using up more dreaded luggage space during our trip.

IGK Dry Shampoo

I picked up three products from Space NK when they had a great deal on which meant that they didn’t cost me any more than they would have if I’d bought them in the States.

The first thing I picked up was the travel size First Class Dry Shamoo which is a Charcoal Detox spray. As I’ve moved from washing my hair every day to every other I do find that my hair gets greasy quicker than most people’s and while it gets used to being washed less often so dry shampoo is a must.

The great thing about this Charcoal spray is that despite it being billed as a heavy-duty dry shampoo it actually feels really light in my hair and doesn’t leave a white residue like a lot of dry shampoos so this is particularly good for those with darker/ coloured hair.

It does everything you want a dry shampoo to do and soaks up all the excess oil in the hair lifting the dirt up and out, and it lasts pretty much all day.


IGK Conditioner

I am always on the look out for good quality shampoo’s and conditioner’s as I spent too long using the cheap own brand one’s which just weren’t right for my hair. In my mind if you spend the money on good skincare and makeup why not do the same to your hair?!

There’s 3 or 4 different collections of the duo but I went for Hot Girls which is the hydrating duo as I sometimes find my hair can feel a little dry especially as I use a hairdryer. The great thing about this shampoo is even if you use it without conditioner I still find that my hair feels silkier than it does when I use other shampoo’s and you can definitely feel the hydration and liquid within it. This is the Vitamin E at work which conditions the hair and leaves it looking shiny and lustrous.

The shampoo has litchi extract which is designed to help product your hair from pollution damage and while I have no idea how to test if this is working it’s good to know that there’s plenty in there to help protect my hair, even UV protection!


IGK Shampoo

The matching conditioner is of course the perfect match which adds even more moisture to my hair which leaves it so smooth even after I’ve blasted it with my hairdryer, something a lot of conditioners can’t last through.

Alongside a lot of the same vitamins and extracts as the shampoo which are designed to protect hair and seal in moisture it also has shea butter which is designed to lock in moisture without leaving the hair greasy, something I really need. I do find that my hair looks very slighly less greasy on day 2 when I use this duo combition than when I use other shampoo’s and conditioners.


Sephora IGK

The final item I picked up was in Sephora as I’d started seeing it in peoples YouTube video hauls and blog posts so I thought I’d give it a try especially as you only have to leave it on your hair for 2-3 minutes before washing out. A lot of these conditioning treatments/ top coats which require half an hour to sit on your hair all sound good but for me just aren’t practical.

The topcoat acts like the topcoat you put on your nails and protects your hair like a shield to nourish, strength and add a bit of depth to the colour. You do have to use quite a bit if you have thicker hair like me so I don’t use it all the time as I’d finish the bottle too quickly, but if I know I’m going out or have something planned where I want to look really nice I slather my hair in this and know I’ll have that extra shine.

    I didn’t hear about this range before. My hair is thin and has a mind of its own so I am always looking for products to keep it under control. I would give these products a go, I like the sound of the conditioner needing to stay on only for a couple of minutes.

  2. April 10, 2018 / 11:27 pm

    This sounds like an interesting range, I would definitely be up for trying the dry shampoo, I rely on it from time to time so a good one for me is a must! Perhaps a Space NK trip is on the cards.

    I have never heard of this before. My hair is so crazy most days and in need of a product that can contain it. I would give this product a try.

    I have not heard of this IGK before but it sounds like a great brand – will look for it when I next to shopping

    I’ve never heard of this range before, but all the products you’ve mentioned sound lovely. I’m going to keep my eyes out for them!

    I never heard of IGK brand before, but it feels good to know that the conditioner and shampoo works so great in providing that much needed softness to the hair.

  7. April 11, 2018 / 5:34 pm

    that is an interesting read. though I only use Dior products, I loved the way you write about this stuff. The interest shows through. keep us posted with these amazing articles

    Same here. I started washing my hair every other day from every day and it’s producing so much oil, America would invade it. Kidding aside, I have never heard of this brand yet the dry shampoo really intrigues me. I use the cheap spray ones and it’s not doing me any good.

    This sounds like an interesting product line. I need to find more of their ingredient’s list to make sure it’s for me!

    I’ve never heard of this product line. however, it seems like you really liked it! It’s always good to hear good reviews.

  11. April 12, 2018 / 6:43 am

    Sounds like a product to try! Dry shampoo always give me problems and I’m still searching for that perfect one! Maybe this could be it!

    When it comes to hair care, I usually visit the salon for that. Please forgive me for that sort of a habit..which is usually not proper I bet! It seems nice when you explore a brand by yourself and get the awesome products you learnt of and actually get to experiment them on your hair to find out what is working and what is not. I’m inspired! As much as I have not heard of this brand before, I think it is just be perfect for your hair locks now that the dry shampoo is already good on your side. I can’t wait to see your hair locks you bet!

    I’d never heard of activated charcoal for hair products, the detox properties certainly make a lot of sense especially for managing hair texture. Nice write up.

    I have to try this out! It seems like it will be great I definitely need some shine in my hair on my dull days.

  20. April 13, 2018 / 8:10 pm

    I’ve been looking for a good dry shampoo forever! I’ve tried many but have yet to find one I’m happy with… I need to try this brand out, the idea that it doesn’t leave a white residue is a huge plus!!

  21. April 13, 2018 / 9:23 pm

    Ooh, I’ve been on the lookout for some new haircare products, and these sound fab! I’ll definitely pick some up next time I’m near a Space NK 🙂

    I’m really interested in the hydrating shampoo as it sounds perfect for my curly hair. I must be one of the only people in the country never to have used dry shampoo yet!

  23. April 17, 2018 / 4:26 am

    I totally agree about hair sometimes being neglected! It wasn’t until I dyed my hair (after getting it bleached in a salon) that i realized that I absolutely needed to switch my hair products to better ones since the ends of my hair are beyond dry!

  24. April 17, 2018 / 6:26 pm

    These sound absolutely awesome and I love the packaging so much. Really stylish!! xxx
