Philip Kingsley Elasticizer

RAPUNZEL RAPUNZEL LET DOWN YOUR HAIR!

Hi All, everyone canny? I've got a secret weapon of hair care today...

BUT before I get all focused on the product can I just ask that we just take a moment to imagine how wonderful life would be if we had hair like the girl from the Tangled film... Animation or not its seriously the most shimmery beautiful vision of hair loveliness I've ever seen, so much gloss and so much body and MYOHMY the bit where the children plait it and weave flowers through it... Simply wow! Little Miss Rapunzel has taken over Jasmine as my favourite Disney gal like!

Any way I digress... (no changes there then!) Lets get back to it...

Philip Kingsley Hair Elasticizer is QVC's Beauty Pick of the month which basically means its a steal and they throw in free p&p... utter godsend seen as its a litre bottle :)

 Its a pre-shampoo treatment so you actually use it prior to washing unlike traditional intensive conditioning treatments that are used afterwards. To use you simply dampen you hair with water then coat hair from mid-lengths to ends giving spesh attention to the parts that are damaged (hello like everywhere!!)... leave for twenty minutes then clean and condition as normal. I like to intensify results by using as an overnight treatment... the longer its on the better right?? 
Another great tip for you ladies who are jetting off to sunnier climes this year, apply the elasticizer in the morning and leave on all day for complete swim and sea protection. 
So thanks to the gorgeous Catrine for tweeting me that little pearl.
But if you do decide to take away with you then definitely decant it into a lil tub though, as a bottle this size will make your case overweight and nothing it worth substituting your new wedges for! 



It's hailed by Philip himself as a hero product and I can see why. The science bit works on the premise that healthy hair stretches when wet before bouncing back when dry but if your hair is damaged then whilst wet and stretched it will snap and break off. Feel familiar??

So this little beauty promises to deliver suppleness, elasticity and bounce instantly to your hair by boosting the cuticle of each strand with a rush of moisture... All this without any coating or weighing down.


You don't need much, the amount shown in the picture below comfortably covers each hair on my head... and I've got lo-o-o-o-o-o-n-n-n-n-g-g-g-g hair and though is fine there's lots of it. 
In fact my grandma has been known to describe me as having "a lovely head of hair" (said in the Geordiest of accents!) but she's gotten picky in her old age and she rarely says it to me now... I blame the GHDs and heat styling!!! 

From first application there has been a spectacular (yes spectacular!) difference in smoothness and softness, for me it's left my hair silky and I've noticed a massive reduction in drying time. I've been using for just over two weeks and the improvement is amazing, it's not sold as an anti-frizz treatment but my flyaway strands are now invisible to naked eye... not sure where they've gone but hey I ain't complaining :) 


So Mr Kingsley what can I say other than THANK YOU and I LOVE YOU IT!!!! 
 And I'm thinking if I keep slathering this on maybe even Grandma will be impressed.... :)


And here's me enjoying my new found strength!

After using the elasticizer for just one week... hashtag long and strong!
Aaaah just messin... the final two pictures are of course borrowed from the tinterweb... I think it demonstrates endless potential for our tresses though, YES?!

And before I go... bask in this hair loveliness on me :)



Any thoughts? Who's tried this? Any other hair care MUST haves? I'm off to check out other products in Philip's range :)

Look forward to reading and replying to all your lushy comments
