Philip Kingsley Elasticizer conditioning hair mask

Although I always go on about my oily roots, the ends of my hair get really dry and quite damaged, so I like to treat the ends and mid lengths with a good hair mask.  Philip Kingsley Elasticizer is a pre-shampoo treatment to give hair more elasticity and bounce.  


*Philip Kingsley Elasticizer | £23.50 | QVC

Unlike most hair masks, this one is applied before you wash your hair rather than after.  I like that about this product as I'm always concious of greasy hair, so it doesn't matter if I get the treatment too near to my roots as I'll be washing my hair aftwerwards.  You apply the treatment to damp hair and then wear the attractive little shower cap which comes with the product.  Wearing the shower cap means I can wander around and get things done while the treatment does its thing.  I think putting the cap on also helps keep warmth in, which  helps the treatment to work better.  

The treatment should stay on for 20 minutes, but I generally always leave masks on a bit longer.  I left this one on for at least half an hour and after washing and conditioning as normal, my hair felt soft and easy to brush through afterwards, but I couldn't see a difference with my split ends.  I've used this treatment in the past and always found that I didn't notice a huge difference after one use, but that my hair would start to appear less damaged over a period of time after using the treatment once a week.  

You can find the Philip Kingsley range at QVC.  I always check if they're selling what I want to buy as I know I can send it back if I don't get on with it.  Unlike most shops, QVC have a 30 day money back guarantee on beauty products, even makeup!

Do you use any hair masks or conditioning treatments?

  2. I love this! I think it works best if you use it overnight but it definitely makes a difference the more you use it.

  4. This is one of my favourite hair treatments, when I stick the cap on after applying the treatment I heat it up a little by lighting using my hairdryer over it - not sure if it makes a huge difference but it was a tip I picked up when I was working in a salon :) x

  5. Love Elasicizer - one of my all time favourites. I also have oily roots but dry/frizzy ends and this really does the trick. I bought the supersize from QVC last year and have loads left! xx

  7. I've had a sample of this lying for ages, but just never got round to using it. Sounds really good though and the ends of my hair could definitely do with a moisture boost! x
