Improved Conditioning with the new Balancing Act Range

IS your scalp oily? Do you have hair with dry ends? Developed and tested by Charles Worthington himself, the new Balancing Act range provides hair with a full detox programme, naturally resetting oil levels. Worthington is one of London's most prolific hairdressers and has won numerous international awards. The Balancing Act Shampoo and Conditioner uses cleansing white nettle to nourish and rebalance oily roots.

White Nettle is a natural ingredient claimed to cleanse thoroughly, and rebalance oily and dry zones on the scalp. The daily conditioner for oily hair is enhanced with white nettle and rice protein, and gently conditions hair without weighing it down. The result is shiny, healthy-looking hair.
