The Philip Kingsley Elasticizer is a product which is hailed as a miracle worker throughout magazines and blogs. A look at the box shows its been awarded beauty prizes by Harper’s Bazaar and InStyle – two publications which know what they’re talking about! So I was super excited to try this miracle product.
Unlike a regular conditioning treatment, this goes on before you shampoo, and it is left on for 1/2 hour. To deal with the unavoidable spills a cute little branded shower cap is included in the box.
I do always find this pre-shampoo treatment idea a little bit of a hassle – but made the most of it by applying a face mask at the same time and had a little home-spa-thing going on.
So, after shampooing and conditioning with my regular products (Kerestase shampoo and Frederik Fekkai conditioner) my hair did feel super smooth.
The only negative I would say came when I came to blow dry my hair – it took forever. However, once I did manage to get it dry, my hair was super sleek and looked as if I had straightened it.
What I like about this is, not only does it work in repairing the damage already done, but also helps in the prevention of damage – smooth hair equals no straighteners for me.
Would I buy the Elasticizer once this tub runs out? Yep, I think I would. I’m a sucker for hair treatments, and this is one which certainly works!
