My Hair Savior : Philip Kingsley's Elasticizer

Before I begin, let me tell you about the wild ways of my hair;

1. It's THICK, not like normal thick hair, like INSANELY thick...
2. This causes me countless problems with washing, styling etc...
3. I have considered shaving my head and wearing a wig many times. 

I recently received a 75ml tube of Philip Kingsley's Elasticizer in the You Beauty Advent Calendar over Christmas, and bearing in mind the 75ml version is £15 I was pretty chuffed!

The product is described as an intensive, super-conditioning pre-shampoo treatment for all hair types. It claims to add elasticity, manageability, bounce and shine (WOOP!). This product is a little different from your usual intensive conditioners, as it requires you to apply it previous to washing your hair, rather than afterwards. Just wet the hair thoroughly, squeeze out excess water and apply it in sections. I then wrap my hair up in a warm towel and leave it to do it's magic for 10-15 minutes, before washing my hair as normal,

The end results include, soft, smoother hair reducing frizz and adding shine, and for me, a definite improvement in manageability, I can now leave it to air dry without me looking like Hagrid from Harry Potter! I am seriously in love with this product and will definitely be purchasing the full size product in the near future. 

Do you have super thick hair like me? Does it drive you crazy? Let me know in the comments section below.
