I've recently been back in the gym and gosh I hate it, men feeling the need to advise me (unasked may I add) on protein powders and women thinking that it is totally acceptable to try and strike a conversation up while starkers in the changing room. I'm not a prude by any means but my private parts are private and that is why I hide in cubicles - no offence to you or your waxing of choice ladies! Anyway I thought I'd share what I have been taking to the gym to wash my hair after a work out which is the rather dinky bottles of Charles Worthington Salon at Home Range.
From what I have gathered the Salon at Home is a vast collection with various sub categories to suit various hair needs from dry, coloured to shine and curls there truly is something for everyone. As I have long hair that gets bleached fairly often the Strength and Repair range is my best option which has been formulated to reduce breakage by up to 82%, repair the appearance of damage and improve elasticity with the aid of Argan oil. That's not all the shampoo and conditioner also feature an in-built heat protectant great for those in a rush.
I have tried out three of the Charles Worthington Salon Strength and Repair line up - the shampoo, the conditioner and the split ends binder. I'm not going to lie to you and say that I mess around with the latter at the gym because I don't but I have used it at home when properly blow drying my hair a.k.a not blasting it with the hairdryer! The shampoo and conditioner are great for dry/damaged hair types as they are highly moisturising and nourishing but they may well be a little too heavy for finer hair types. After a few washes my hair certainly looked and felt smoother as well as being easier to style and comb - I wouldn't say that it repaired my hair but it does help give the appearance of healthier hair. The split ends binder is essentially a finishing product that you apply to damp hair before blow drying - the idea is that helps to seal split ends as well as giving an overall healthy sheen/gloss to the hair. I warn you now that less is more with this product otherwise your hair will feel and look sticky/lank. Otherwise it does what it says on the tin and gives the appearance of smoother hair.
I don't know if I would purchase the Charles Worthington Salon Strength and Repair* products in full size but I will stock up on the minis for travel and the gym as they are so well sized and the formulation is not to be sniffed at either!
