Travel Light

Charles Worthington Take AwaysPacking for your holidays is always a nightmare, no matter where you’re going or how long you’re going for. And once all the clothes and shoes are squeezed into the suitcase there’s that awful moment of horror when you realise you haven’t even started on make-up and toiletries.

No matter how nice the free shampoo in the hotel looks, it’s always nice to have your own stuff with you. Taking a huge bottle of shampoo and conditioner is impossible, which is why mini sizes are great.

Boots are currently offering 3 for 2 on Professional Hair Minis, so you can stock up on all your favourite, familiar items without over stuffing your suitcase or breaking the bank. The Charles Worthington Takeaways range is particularly good as there’s a huge variety from volume conditioner to shine on shampoo, and heat protection spray to hairspray. There’s even a special UV-protection range to look after your hair if you’re off to sunnier shores.

Available in store or at Boots online.

Turn Up The Volume

Saturday, September 8th, 2007

Full Volume ShampooThis Full Volume Shampoo by Charles Worthington will plump up your hair, so if your locks are looking a bit flat and lifeless you need to get your hands on these products! The shampoo will enhance volume without weighing it down and cleanse your hair gently to reveal its natural gloss and vitality.

The conditioner is available in the same range so use this afterwards to give your hair a well deserved lift. Charles Worthington recommends using the Mineral Hair Spa Rescue Treatment with these to give your hair some extra special care. The shampoo comes in a funky bright pink tub – this is what caught my attention! Available for £4.49.

Maximum Shine Serum

Thursday, August 9th, 2007

Maximum shine serumCharles Worthington really does some great products; this Maximum Shine Serum has got to be one of their better buys. Ever feel that even though you’ve just washed your hair it doesn’t have that shine you were after? This serum not only adds a glossy shine but keeps those fly aways at bay as well. It also has a built in UV filter to protect your locks from the sunshine.

As part of the new Salon Shine range, the Gloss Polish and Gloss Spray are both recommended to use for better results. The bottle is small enough for you to pop in your handbag, so you can top up whenever you feel you need a bit of added shine. Available from the Charles Worthington website from only £3.99.

What's The Best Hair Smoothing Balm?

Thursday, July 19th, 2007

I love the tried and tested sections in magazines where they have a few different products and they rate each one out of 10. Firstly it saves me having to buy the products to test out myself and also they prove that it’s not always the most expensive brands that come out on top. This week in Mcelebs – the Sunday Mirror supplement the four products in the experiment were Lucinda Ellery Exceptionally Restoring Treatment Hair Balm (£18.50), Charles Worthington Dream Flawless Finish Balm (£5.49), Lee Stafford Babe Wave (£4.99) and Tony & Guy Smoothing Balm that I mentioned in the previous post (6.99).

Lee Stafford Babe WaveEach product is designed to reduce frizz, lock in flyaways and make your hair feel smoother and look shinier. Rated last with 5/10 was the cheapest product Lee Stafford Babe Wave, it can be sticky if you apply to much but works well if the right amount is used, another comment made was that results didn’t last very long but overall it was OK.

Charles Worthington DreamIn third place with 7/10 was Charles Worthington’s Dream Flawless Finish Balm. Testers mentioned good results with noticeable smoother and shinier hair and less flyaways but again not perfect. The packaging is pretty cute though! Superdrug are currently selling this product on offer for just £3.99.

Lucinda Ellery BalmThe most expensive product Lucinda Ellery Exceptionally Restoring Treatment Hair Balm came in 2nd place, testers seemed to love the packaging and design of the product, said results were great and hair even stayed frizz free in the rain. The product is much more expensive than the others but you only need a tiny amount for it to work well.

Tony & Guy Smoothing BalmIn first place was Tony & Guy Smoothing Balm from the ‘Straight’ collection I mentioned earlier. Awarded 9/10 for results and price, testers said it smelled great, helped make hair more manageable and kept locks frizz free throughout the day. At only £6.99 there’s no reason why we all shouldn’t test out this product!

So there you go, Toni & Guy’s smoothing balm won the overall experiment but all products received good comments from testers.
