Phillip Kingsley Elasticizer
75ml tube- £12.75 | feel unique
I follow a handful of beauty blogs who I literally rely on. It soon dawned on me that Philip Kingsley's infamous Elasticizer is featured positively on every single beauty blog I follow. My hair is quite thick and gets knotted extremely quickly which after a 15 minute session with my trusty Tangle Teezer; I am good to go. However, my hair is bleached about 5 inches up from the bottom so I have to wash my hair every other day to prevent it looking like a frizzy candy floss mess. I have been using L'Oreal's hair oil which has really helped the ends of my hair to even out its frizziness and make it shiny and looking a lot healthier.
Philip Kingsley's Elasticizer is a pre-shampoo treatment. I've never used one before so was a little unsure how to use it and if would actually work for me. It's designed to "add elasticity, manageability, bounce and shine" and I can't agree more. I'm now actually having to rely on this to make my hair look like hair and not a knotted, matted mess. It makes my hair a lot sleeker and soft to touch instead of that horrible dry/straw like feeling that bleached hair has.
The Elasticizer is not cheap which is the one drawback that stopped me from buying this sooner. Due to the length and thickness of my hair, I need around a walnut size amount of product. I went for the 75ml tube (the smallest one which is £12.75 (free UK delivery with feel unique too!). Using it 2/3 times a week has seen this lasting me around 5/6 weeks. It will obviously last longer if you have thinner or shorter hair or simply use it a lot less! I have around three more uses out of this before it sadly runs out but I would definitely buy this again. I think I'll go for a bigger one!
