Number nine is the cult hair favourite, Philip Kingsley Elasticizer.
This is a treatment for your hair, but different in that you apply before shampooing rather than after. You apply it to wet hair, work through the lengths, leave for up to 20 minutes, then rinse and shampoo as usual.
It contains an arsenal of moisture boosting ingredients; castor and olive oil to lock in moisture, silicones to add shine (no, it won’t weigh your hair down, promise), glycerine and glycol to help retain moisture and elastin to help strengthen the hair shaft and add elasticity. And best of all, it also provides UV protection, helping to prolong the life of your colour. (NB: Don’t use this product for three days before and three days after any chemical processing.)
This will be your hair’s best friend through the summer months. I know mine would be a frazzled nest come February if it wasn’t for this treatment. It will leave you with soft, silky and shiny hair, no matter how harsh you’ve been with your tresses.
It’s available in 20ml for R430, 150ml for R530, 500ml for R670, and 1000ml for R1670. You can buy it here.
And here’s a little video on how to apply it:
