Dear Clark Haircare x Birchbox: Texas and NYC meet!
It was at a Beauty event where I first met the owners of this haircare line. I learned they were the hair experts on the show "Dallas" and their clean and cool looking packaging stood out among others.The
September Birchbox will have a little bit of Texas to sample from Dallas’ very
own Dear Clark haircare.
Samples of the shampoo and conditioner, which are
adored by celebrities, hairstylists, and clients alike, will be available to a
select number of Birchbox subscribers!
Both men and
women will be sampling the ingredient-conscious products, as
a selection of both male and female subscribers will be receiving these
Texas-based products in their September box. The shampoo and conditioner, or
Resurrecting Wash and Rinse as they are known, contain ingredients such as Aloe
Vera, Sunflower Seed Oil, and Rose of Jericho all of which are sourced from
The line has been categorized as
ingredient-conscious, which means the products are free of parabens, phosphates,
sulfates, petrochemicals, and GMOs. The products are safe to use and repair
damaged hair. Holly Dear and Kaycee Clark, co-owners of Dear Clark Hair Studio
and the masterminds behind the haircare line, take pride in the high-quality of
"We saw the need to produce a
more natural, active, quality-derived ingredient haircare that penetrated the
hair shaft instead coating it with silicones, which is a more common band-aid
effect," Clark said.
If subscribers aren’t lucky
enough to try the products in their Birchbox, retail sized products will be
available on Birchbox.com and at Birchbox's SoHo store in NYC, located at 433
West Broadway. Subscribers may also visit the Dear Clark website.
"This a perfect opportunity to
sample Dear Clark Haircare without making the big commitment, although we are
confident they will be back for more," Kaycee Clark said.
Holly Dear and Kaycee Clark
first met in the 1990s while working at Toni and Guy. Their paths eventually led
them in different directions. Holly took off to Italy to develop products for
Kemon, and Kaycee headed west to work for KMS California as the Global Creative
Director. In 2007 they reunited, and launched Dear Clark in 2008 with a goal of
creating a teamwork environment with an emphasis on the entrepreneurial spirit.
The salon is now home to over 30 stylists and includes a full-service blow dry
lounge. In April of 2013, Holly and Kaycee launched the Dear Clark product
line. Homegrown in Texas and crafted locally, the Dear Clark Haircare Salvation
is loved countrywide. Dear Clark info here.
