Philip Kingsley Elasticizer Pomegranate & Cassis

One of the hair care products I hear the most about is the iconic Philip Kingsley Elasticizer, the one everyone has used, tried and loved.   Now with a slight spin on things, I was kindly sent the Philip Kingsley Elasticizer in Pomegranate & Cassis (£34 for 150ml) to try.

My hair has grown a lot since I have had it trimmed almost a year ago (oops) and to be honest, it is need of a makeover to sort out the differing lengths and overall condition because nothing I am using currently is helping to do anything with it.  So in the meantime, I thought I would give this a try.

Described as being a luxurious pre-shampoo conditioning treatment, the original Elasticizer was in fact formulated for none other than Audrey Hepburn, which is quite the claim to fame and how it became a cult icon.  It is designed to boost elasticity, manageability, bounce and shine as it deeply conditions the hair, all without weighing the hair down.  The first thing I noticed about this cream is how wonderfully fruity the scent was and that is due to the use of Pomegranate and Cassis which just smell divine and it is a scent that lingers on the hair.

As this is a pre-shampoo treatment, using it is much easier than I had expected it to be and depending on much TLC you feel your hair needs, there are two ways of using it.  The first is before shampooing upon which you apply to damp hair and the easiest way to do this is to section your hair and apply it to mid-lengths and end only, ensuring you give as much coverage as possible.  Then cover your head with a shower cap or a towel, depending on your preference and allow the heat this creates to allow the nutrients to sink in and work their magic and at this point, you need to leave it on the hair for between 10-20 minutes and then rinse your hair thoroughly and shampoo and condition as normally. I always shampoo twice to ensure I have no residue left behind.  The second way to use this Elasticizer is to apply it to your hair as previously mentioned and then leave it on overnight as a mask and wash it out the following morning. 

The end result for my hair is that my hair feels just incredible, it is soft, it is smooth, it is shiny, it looks healthy, it is feels nourished without being greasy but most importantly for me is that I can style my hair, using my 10-year-old Straighteners which get warm rather than hot and not have to constantly glide them through my hair to do their job. 

Are you a fan of Philip Kingsley Elasticizer?
