Charles Worthington Intense Rescue Melting Balm Review

 

 

Charles Worthington Intense Rescue melting balm : £16.99
I am always on the lookout for something that boasts to give me soft; luscious locks and will try anything once. I saw the Charles Worthington products on a 3 for 2 and snapped this up straight away. I had heard the hype about this product a few years ago but never got round to buying it until recently.
The consistency is a solid balm, which actually reminds me of the ever so popular facial cleansing balms. You scrape a small amount into your hands and rub them together until the product turns into a thick oil (it kind of reminds me of lard but it smells better) then rub it through the lower half of you hair. To say avoid your roots is a total understatement, it will take a hell of a lot of washing to get it out and you will probably look like a ‘greaseball’ for a day or two.
The instructions on the packaging direct you to use it after shampooing and to leave on for around 10 minutes. I did try this the first time but it backfired massively when I tried to blow dry my hair and found it was sticking together where it had not washed out properly. I then tried a different approach I worked the balm through dry unwashed hair and wrapped my head in cling film for 15 minutes (I looked very special) I then shampooed my hair with a lightweight formula and didn’t use conditioner, which worked a treat! My hair felt extremely soft and somehow thicker after using the product this way, which could be a concern for thicker hair. Another issue with the after effects of this product is I felt my hair needed washing a lot sooner it felt heavy and seemed to get greasy very quickly. I definitely think this is a good buy for people with very dry, damaged hair to use on a once a week basis but if you want something to use more regularly then maybe give this one a miss.
