Review: Charles Worthington Instant Volume Treatment

I’ve absolutely loved a couple of the products from Charles Worthington’s Salon at home line, so I was excited to see they have expanded the collection recently to include this Instant Amplifying Volume Treatment. I thought I would give it a whirl.

The consistency is very strange for a treatment; it’s a thick gel, so doesn’t feel particularly luxurious when you’re using it, but like other products in this line it smells amazing. Seriously it smells so good you could eat it.

This left my hair feeling surprisingly moisturised after rinsing it out, (I used it in place of a conditioner) and my hair felt nice and soft after blow drying. It didn’t however, noticeably add any volume to my hair. I’ve tried this a couple of times, drying my hair normally, upside-down etc and it just doesn’t seem to add any extra volume. So it’s a bit of a failure really… A nice product, but it doesn’t really do what it says on the tube.

I do have quite ‘heavy’ hair so this may be more effective on those with finer locks, but for me, this just didn’t perform.

If you fancy giving this treatment a whirl, you can pick it up from Boots now, for £14.99. Though I would definitely recommend picking up the Melting Rescue Balm instead…
