REVIEW: Charles Worthington Moisture Seal Conditioner
Or, to give it its full title, Moisture Seal Hair Healer Leave-In Conditioner.
I wasn’t really expecting great things from this leave in treatment. I haven’t used a Charles Worthington product for a while after being scarred, figuratively, not literally, by his weatherproof frizz free conditioner a few years ago. It actually did the exact opposite, and left my hair looking like a big frizzy afro after I was caught out in the rain.
I selected this product from a beauty sample box because 1. It’s a decent size (50ml) and 2. I thought it would be handy to take away on holiday. In fact, it turned out to be an incredible find and I’ve gone on to buy the full-sized product which as a bonus, is very reasonably priced.
Charles Worthington Moisture Seal Hair Healer Leave-In Conditioner
Create intensely nourished hair that’s instantly 5 x softer.
Transform dry, dehydrated hair with a powerful blend of 5 nourishing oils, which penetrate deep into the hair shaft leaving hair 3 x smoother when when Moisture Seal Shampoo, Conditioner and Hair Healer are used together. – Not sure you need all 3, but I do feel tempted to now try the rest of the range.
I brought this product as I had stripped my hair and it was really damaged and dry. I couldn’t find any conditioners or shampoos that worked on my hair to help bring nourishment back to it. Finally, I tried the Charles Worthington brand and I found that the Hair Healer leave in conditioner was great for my dry hair!
The only thing that I will say about it is that it makes your hair greasier quicker if you use it all over your hair and if you use it frequently (Yes, absolutely!) However I would recommend this to anyone who has had their hair stripped and wants to have it look healthy as the old hair grows out.
Ladies with thick, dry, wavy, and possibly damaged hair like mine should get this! I cannot believe the low ratings for this product.
It is different from other leave in conditioners: when you wash your hair and your hair is damp, you put the product on, then over time when it had dried, there is a strange invisible layer of coating that you can feel (this is not a sticky or oily feeling by the way) and once you brush it or any move you hair in any manner, the coating basically just vanishes leaving your hair dramatically softer to the touch! (Spot on!)
HOW TO USE
- Smooth through clean damp hair with fingers or comb, repeating until applied all over. (Whoa! Not too much!)
- Do not rinse off.
- Style as desired.
The Moisture Seal range is enriched with nourishing Argan Oil and fragranced with lime, mandarin and white florals, making it an everyday luxury that can be used every day to moisturise, smooth and detangle, sealing in moisture without adding weight.
The scent certainly packs a punch, it’s a heady, soapy floral fragrance that I would find too sickly if it lingered, but happily it doesn’t, and is undetectable on the hair once it’s been dried.
It’s hard to explain, but it really does leave a ‘coating’ or seal, on hair you can almost feel.
The texture of the runny opaque gel crème serum is very slippy, you should only use a pea sized amount. There are 5 types of oil in the product. Use too much and, as one of the reviewers above stated, it will make hair look greasy, especially the next day.
However, nail the correct amount of product to apply and hair will become beautifully soft, but more importantly, shiny.
This conditioner pops colour and gives blonde hair a glossy sheen, but I can easily imagine it will work wonders on all types of hair, from fine to coarse.
The price for 200ml (which is going to last for ages) is £5.99 which makes this a genuine bargain buy.
Available from Boots and Charles Worthington.
