Philip Kingsley Elasticizer - Top Treatment!

A treatment that feels like a treatment!

I'm always looking a great hair treatment and always getting disappointed. I always opt for the cheap offers as I never know what I'm looking for and then I'm surprised when I see no difference in my hair whatsoever. 

 As a long haired, blonde highlight kinda girl I am constantly battling with dry, weak ends and love to use treatments but I find some leave my hair greasy and weighed down. I've been looking to invest in a really decent treatment for ages and been hesitant, so getting the chance to try this treatment out was fantastic, and I am honestly converted for life! 

Enter the Philip Kingsley Elasticizer.. Here's what they have to say about their product - 

Originally created for Audrey Hepburn, Philip Kingsley’s multi-award winning Elasticizer is an intensive, super conditioning, pre-shampoo treatment that delivers a rush of moisture to the hair’s cuticle; suppleness, elasticity and bounce appear instantly without weighing down or coating the hair. With an impressive celebrity following including Georgia-May Jagger, Cate Blanchett and Gwyneth Paltrow, Elasticizer is every beauty editor’s go-to treatment, for healthy, beautiful hair. Apply before shampooing. Dampen the hair and apply Elasticizer in sections to mid-lengths and ends, ensuring maximum coverage. Be generous with your application; use at least half of your sample tube. Cover with a shower cap or towel. Leave for a minimum of 20 minutes. Then wash hair as normal. Shampoo twice to ensure any residue is fully rinsed off. Hair will be left full of bounce and shine.

So bouncy, shiny hair right? Right! This treatment really does live up to its claims and I can completely tell the difference after I've used it. I can see why it is a celebrity favourite - those names don't lie!

The photo above is after using the elasticizer, can you see how smooth the ends are and how bouncy, and conditioned my hair looks?

Compare that to the shot below which is how my ends look normally when I don't use a treatment. See why I'm such a convert now?? 

I really liked that this was a "before shampoo" treatment as treatments I've tried in the past that have been 'super conditioning' and applied as the final step can really weigh my hair down. If I've put a treatment on my hair that works, I know it's going to go greasy again very quickly and for me it's just not worth the bother! I have very fine hair and products which don't wash out easily are a nightmare for me. 

Having this as a pre shampoo treatment means you can pop it on before you get in the shower. Perfect, no standing around wet in a towel for 20 minutes while you wait to rinse it off in between conditioning! Or you can light a candle, put it on, put your hair up and relax in the bath with a glass of wine for 20 minutes to have a real pampering treat. - I know which option I prefer!

I do love that it says you need to leave it on for a minimum of 20 minutes. I really hate it when a treatment says you can rinse it off in two minutes as for me the whole point of paying for a good hair product is that you need to give it time to work. Not only that but I want it to feel like a "treat" - ment. You know that in hair salons they would leave a  conditioning treatment on to really soak in and the results from this are as if you've just walked out of the door of the salon!

The Philip Kingsley Elasticiszer really does make your hair feel bouncy and, soft and conditioned. I'd love to see how much of an impact it makes when combined with the other products in the range.
