I really rate the Charles Worthington range. I think all of the products are absolutely brilliant and do exactly what they say, however they are expensive put you pay for brilliance!!!

I am going to give you my opinion on one of the specific take away products...
Take Aways SHINE silkening serum

I bought this just before my holiday this summer, as I can't live without hair serum; it is one of those products I swear by. Frizzy hair is a complete no no in my opinion!! Especially as there is a cure available!!

When I bought it I was aware I was paying a high price for such a minimal amount of substance £1.65...only 15ml. But I am not disappointed now, as I have been using it for about a month and a half and I haven't even used 1/6 of the bottle. Therefore you really do not need to use a large amount of serum to cure frizz only a little does the trick perfectly.

Each time I dry my hair once it is dry I apply two squirts of the pump action to my hand, rub my hands together to spread the serum, and apply evenly to the top of my hair (where it is most fizzy) and a little on the ends to add definition. The effects will last a long time, but re-application may be required.

It leaves hair feeling soft and flexible if a minimal amount is used, if you use to much it may make your hair look greasy and hard...I wouldn't recommend!

It smoothes out hair and also protects, preventing and treating split ends leaving hair manageable and brilliantly shiny! How can you go wrong with this product, I would expect everyone would want hair by that description!!

The bottle is the length of my forth finger, so it will fit perfectly in a small bag, handy for an evening out clubbing as an emergency product! I always take it with me...just in case! However if you are a fan of reading the back of the bottle with this one it may prove difficult, I think the writing must be about font size 4, which strains the eyes incredibly. If you have read a review you won't need to read it!!!This product comes in two types one for:
  • Fine to medium and fly away hair
  • Medium to thick hair
    With different coloured lids to make it easier to see on the shelf.

I am sure many of you would be pleased to know that this product is not tested on animals throughout production.The low-Down

A brilliant product, that is really worth the money. It says exactly what it does!

Thanks for the read, I would be grateful of any comments!! xxxxxx

Charles Worthington Take Aways haven't agreed with my hair. I'm not a fan. Gem x

I use this too, it's great. And I find it lasts ages too.
