Charles Worthington Melting Balm

After being super lazy with my hair for so long I am now obsessed with hair products. I was kindly sent a package of goodies (Fudge Urban & Sanctuary spa reviews) a while ago and I've been meaning to review this rescue balm for ages. 

Charles Worthington Melting Balm

This Charles Worthington Intense Rescue Melting Balm* melts into an oil with the heat of your hand in order to rescue dry, damaged hair by deeply conditioning it. You apply to dry hair and comb through, leaving it to sink in for 20 mins before washing it off. Also major selling point this balm smells incredible. I'm sat sniffing the tub whilst writing the post. It is soo good.

"Its blend of 7 exotic oils and butters is packed with lipids and proteins, similar to those naturally found in healthy hair."

It is specially formulated to decrease hair breakages and repair split ends. I can't vouch for this because I ignore my ends until I get them cut and don't really pay attention to splint ends so I haven't noticed any change in that. It also claims to make hair less frizzy and easier to style after only 1 week of use and leaves hair renewed and extremely healthy after 2 weeks of use. This balm can also be used as an overnight mask and a tiny amount can be used to control frizzy hair whilst styling. Multi purpose for the win.

I found it definitely helped with general frizziness and it made my locks oh soo soft. Seriously my hair looks and feels lush. I did found it quite difficult to wash out though due to the oil and general thickness of the product in my hair. I used it once and only realised the next day that I hadn't managed to wash it out completely so had a really greasy streak. Not a great look. So just be warned to make sure you really pay attention when washing it out. I have to use shampoo 3ish times and rinse for quite a while. Buut on the plus side I don't have to use conditioner afterwards because my hair is already super soft & my hair gets greasy with too much conditioning. Annnd your hair will smell incredible.

The packaging suggests using it once or twice a week for best results. My hair isn't too dry and goes through phases of getting quite greasy so I don't use it that often as it is very intense and moisturising. However if you struggle with dry and frizzy hair I would definitely recommend this. It is so nourishing and gives so much life back to dry hair. It also reduced frizziness from blow drying. My hair was definitely less poofy.

What are your fave hair masks?
