But no. Apparently not. Stupid hair.
Anyway, long story short (well, not that short), I went on a hunt for a really nice, affordable, shampoo and conditioner that was going to turn my hair from dry and straw like, to super soft and touchable. And I do touch it. A lot. My name is Lisa, and I’m a hair twirler.
I have a couple of Charles Worthington styling products that I really love, so I’m not sure why I never really tried their shampoos and conditioners before. But when I saw their Moisture Seal range I had to give it a go. I mean look at it – it’s so pretty and orange. Anyway, looks aside the product has a blend of Argan, Abyssinian, Coconut, Tsubaki and Macadamia oils (phew), which is supposed to give long lasting nourishment. It even goes as far as to say hair will be instantly 5x softer, 3x smoother and silkier than ever. I have to admit, it was this promise that sold it for me. The colour pulled me in, the slogan hooked me. It was also three for two in Boots, so I picked up the shampoo, conditioner and rescue masque (which hasn’t really been used but is in this month’s five new things).
So I pushed aside my half full shampoo and conditioner duo that was sat on the side of my bath, and replaced it with my orange beauties. I lathered up, rinsed out, applied the conditioner, combed through with my wet brush, left it while I shaved, and then rinsed. I noticed an instant difference in my hair. Even while it was wet it just felt smoother and looked shinier. Once dry, it feels so soft, I don’t think my hair has ever been so soft, and as I’ve used it more and more it’s feeling stronger and looks healthier. I don’t think I’ve ever been as impressed with something as simple as a shampoo and conditioner. There’s a few additional bonuses to this little duo as well. It doesn’t take as long to blow dry, and if I forget to use my anti-frizz products it doesn’t actually make that much difference. Also, it goes longer without feeling greasy, it’s breaking less, and holding its style for longer. I mean if a plain old conditioner can do this, what is the mask going to do?! Shove me in a bath, turn Netflix on and coat my hair in it. I think I just haven’t really gotten around to using the mask yet because the conditioner is so good by itself, but I’m looking forward to seeing the results.
I absolutely love this range, and I really want to try other pieces from it – especially the hair oil. I can’t get enough of my hair now, and for someone who was an obsessive hair twirler already, this has just made it so much worse. They should change the slogan to “5x softer, 3x smoother, 10x more twirling and silkier than ever”. Just a thought. All hail the hair twirlers. I generally feel more confident, with healthier, happier hair, and hopefully next time I go to the hairdresser she’ll notice a difference as well. Fingers crossed.
If not I’m just going to cut it all off and start again. Jokes.
