Charles Worthington TakeAways Hair Spray I'm a bit annoyed with this or is it just me. This is another one of those hairsprays where it leaves a residue on your hair, some white fluffy bits that are visible on the hair and stay stuck unless you wash it out, trying to comb it out is a nightmare and I usually end up using just my fingers trying to pinch it off until I get home. To be fair the hairspray does give a strong hold and half several hours throughout the day my hair hasn't really moved, the look it gives is shiny and glossy hair, but also some 'solid' hair - okay, what I mean is, it doesn't give a very natural look. It definitely does look as if you have used the hairspray as you can see the residue if you look carefully, and it is also made worse as soon as I try to touch it or move it a little, bits of the hairspray become visible and it's frustrating. I'm really not sure what it means about the 'flexible' control part, because it is not, although I do agree with it being totally 'max hold'! The spray can be a bit sticky and you will know what I mean when you manage to get some on your hand when you're using it. It has a very strong scent, exactly as if you've just come out of a salon, I think this is worse than having too much perfume on. I always worry about the 'highly flammable part' because the smell does seem very volatile and chemically 'dangerous' but it is usually more than enough to use one of two sprays of this on your hair. This costs about £1.29 for a small 50 ml can which is reasonable but I'm just annoyed about the residue it leave on your hair. This spray isn't really suitable if you just want to keep your hair manageable and naturally casual. More for those who need to keep their hair dead still, I can't imagine anyone needing to use this for day to day wear. Maybe it's just me... Thanks for reading. :) ©Leighsa 2010
I first bought this because i was going away for the weekend and didnt want to carry and big bottle of hairspray with me. So i went to the 'mini' section in superdrug. I didnt have much choice because this was the only mini hairspray but i saw it was Charles Worthington and have had good experiences with his products in the past. I was really impressed, as expected it was brilliant. It didnt make my hair go rock hard like some, and lasted all night (believe me it was a long night) My hair was still in place by the time we got back to the hotel. Now for the morning test. I was expecting to look in the mirror and have loads of little bits of dried hairspray but i had none which was really good. Then I was running late for breakfast so i didnt have time to have shower so i just brushed it and put it a hairband and again i pleased because i didnt have to fight the hairbrush through the hairspray it felt really good! The bottle is tiny and so handy i always carry one in my bag now. I am really please with this hairspray and would recommend this. It costs £1.75 for 50ml and is worth the money.
