“ Brand: Charles Worthington / Type: Hair Shampoo / Subcategory: Moisturiser / What it does: Moisturizes, „
This is another of the Charles Worthington range that I have used off and on over the years. I tend to use this for a few weeks to hopefully get a bit Moisture in my Hair as I straighten it every other day and it is thick and has a bit frizz to it as well. I just buy this in the little 75ml bottle since I use this off and on but I know it works out more expensive to buy it this way. My local Asda sells this size for just under £2, but the 250ml bottles cost around £4.
According to the bottle this helps to rehydrate dry and damaged area of your Hair and provide a deep down Conditioning treatment. Also is it meant to help against future damage to your Hair. Sounds good.
This Shampoo is a medium thickness and lathers up well onto wet Hair. The scent of this is nice enough. It smells a little bit floral I would say, but is just a nice fresh, creamy kind of scent. Also there seems to be a bit Citrus scent in here too. It's nice enough and the scent lingers on your Hair as well.
After using the matching conditioner and rinsing this off I found that my Hair felt smooth and soft. I straightened it when it was dry and it felt in good condition and had a nice sheen to it too. I fell that my Hair looked smooth and glossy.
I can't comment what this is like to use all the time since I use this for a week or 2 then change to another Shampoo, but I think this takes any of the dryness out and is really good for my Hair for adding some Moisture.
Another good haircare product from a good range.
I am a great fan of Charles Worthington products ever since my daughter bought me a gift set of four different hair products. My first set was the takeaway bottles and I still find these the best when traveling. There is a huge array of the takeaways range, which is good for me but can get confusing when you don't know which to try.
I have tried the colour bright, the instant shine, and finally settled on the Moisture seal as I find this suits my hair the best. It also seems to me to cover most types of hair and reduces the damaging effects of sun, wind, and styling products.
At the moment I'm using the 75ml take aways moisture seal shampoo and conditioner. I didn't ask dooyoo for a separate category though as the product is the same as the larger bottle that's pictured. Mine is exactly the same product but has an orange bottle with the same colour top. I already have a large bottle of the colour bright shampoo, so thought I'd add this one to my range as a smaller container that will go everywhere with me.
This shampoo states it helps to rehydrate dry and damaged areas to boost your hair's overall strength and ability to retain moisture. It also promises to keep your hair full and guard against future damage. But can one shampoo really achieve those types of results?
I know from experience of other shampoos that it's best to pour a small amount into the palm of your hand while waiting for the shower temperature to reach the correct heat. There's no point in wetting your hair first before finding out the constituency of the shampoo. Some run too quickly leaving you with wet hair and with no shampoo. Others may 'gloop'out of the bottle or worse, can be hard to pour and then your hair goes cold. I find that maddening. So when I first tried this I gently opened the top and squeezed the bottle lightly to get a sufficient amount to try.
I must admit that I was initially concerned, as this seemed a bit runny. My hair was wet enough so I lathered it with ease, as my hair is quite short. The perfume was pleasant as all their products are and this has a slightly citrus smell. It felt pleasant on my scalp and there was no irritation after the first wash. I haven't had any trouble with any of the Charles Worthington shampoos before, but since this one had a long list of ingredients I was extra careful. I couldn't see anything in the list to concern me, though I did notice that one ingredient says 'hydrolyzed wheat and gluten so I don't know if this would be a problem to people with those allergies.
One problem with my hair is that although it's coloured, it's fine so I use a fair amount of styling products. This can make my scalp very dry so I usually rinse the first time and reapply a small amount of shampoo. The second wash felt much better and when I rinsed the second time it did feel squeaky clean. I used a small amount of mousse to my hair and proceeded to style it with a hairdryer and fine brush. There were no tangles and my hair felt quite soft afterwards.
I didn't really think about it until I was due 24 hours later to wash my hair again. Depending on whether I stay in or go out then I might wash it every two days. In this case my hair still felt soft without the buildup I get from styling every day. It could have been co-incidence, but I thought the shampoo had made a difference. I left it for a few weeks to see if the product still kept my hair soft, non-greasy and hydrated as promised. In this case it did work very well, though many things can contribute to healthy hair, diet, general health, sun and rain, pollution and swimming.
Overall I think it has performed very well and will continue to use it. With the addition of the Moisture Seal conditioner this will add to my repertoire of travel products, with the 75 ml bottles I can usually get between three and five washes so they are ideal for my purposes. It is a little expensive so I usually wait until there's an offer on as I do use quite a lot of these products in general.
Price: £1.99 per bottle.
As always, thanks for reading.
~Reasons For Buying~
I colour, blow dry, straighten and curl my hair non stop, and have been doing for a good few years now, and it really damages my hair. Sometimes my hair gets really thin and straw like and on these occasions I always rush off to Boots and spend loads of money on new hair products. I hate my hair looking like this as I think its my best feature and if it looks scruffy then it ruins the rest of my appearance. My advice for anyone younger than sixteen who wants to dye their hair is NOT to do it! If someone told me this when I was younger I would have never listened but seriously it will wreck your hair, and you will end up probably wasting all your money, like me, on products to get the life back to your hair. Anyway, lecture over and lets get on to the review.
I was in Boots the day before yesterday and they had an offer on certain brands of hair care, which was 3 for £10. I noticed it was the more expensive brands that were included in this offer, which is still quite expensive. I wanted to get some shampoo, conditioner and something else, all that would hopefully make my hair look healthier and generally much nicer than how it was looking and feeling at that moment.
The three things I bought were Charles Worthington Results Moisture Seal Shampoo, Charles Worthington Results Moisture Seal Conditioner and Charles Worthington Results Hair Healer Leave in Conditioner.
Normally this shampoo would cost you £4.49, and there is 250ml in the bottle. Obviously this is one of the more expensive shampoos you can get but I think the price can be justified if the product works really well - but does this work really well?Read on to find out. . .
~Using The Shampoo~
The directions given on the back of the bottle are: Massage into wet hair, lather and rinse thoroughly to reveal your deeply nourished end result. Avoid contact with eyes. For optimum results combine with Moisture Seal Conditioner.
I thought that the shampoo formula itself was lovely and thick and so perfect for rubbing up into a lather. It is clear in colour and not at all soapy which meant it didn't leave my hair feeling greasy but instead thoroughly cleansed it so that it ws left feeling like new. As the bottle suggests to, I used this along with the conditioner and I think that it really helps to make your hair feel beautifully nourished. If you are thinking of buying this I would recommend buying the conditioner as well as I really do think that it is needed for best results.
I think the bottle that this comes in is really attractive. It looks like the one shown in the picture provided. It is the same, unique shape - a narrow, almost triangular shape. It is a peachy, light orange colour with a silver and black lid. It does look really gorgeous and I think the bottle is one of the main reasons I was attracted to this in Boots and one of the factors that convinced me to buy it. Its something I definitely wouldn't be ashamed of having on show in my bathroom. The whole look of it suggests luxury and expense - OK so it is only a shampoo, but still, what girl or man can resist this?
I loved this shampoo. My hair is starting to feel lovely and nourished once again and I'm extremely pleased with the results it has come out with. I think it is slightly expensive but this is the only thing that makes me feel like not recommending it to others. Apart from the price tag this is the best shampoo I have used this year (thats a LOT of shampoos!). I'm glad I bought it and would recommend snapping one up now while its on offer.
