Brazilian Blowout in a Bottle

Calling all fragile, kinked, or ethnic-haired beauties out there! If you’ve heard of renowned trichologist Philip Kingsley and his eponymous line of cult-status hair care products then you are in for a treat.

Introducing Philip Kingsley’s new Moisture Extreme line for extremely porous, tight curls and all variations of ethnic textured hair. The problem-solving products are also suitable for chemically processed or relaxed hair…and even synthetic extensions!

After the first treatment I noticed such an improvement in my fragile curly, kinked hair. Less frizz and more volume. Oddly, the products did not weigh my hair down, a typical characteristic with most moisturizing shampoos and conditioners.

“It took us two years to get it right,” stated Philip Kingsley. “We were testing it on our clients in the New York and London clinics with absolutely outstanding results. It’s been a smash hit. What it does to tame and moisturize frizzy, coarse, dry, overprocessed hair and kinked hair is just amazing,” he said.

The secret, Kingsley told me, is the exact percentages of the ingredients and the top quality of those ingredients. “It’s the blending and percentage of them,” he said.

Philip Kingsley products are the Rolls Royce of hair care. They are beauty products I can’t live without, and I am not alone.

Audrey Hepburn, Kate Winslet, Candice Bergen, Cher, Jerry Hall, Barbra Streisand, Sigourney Weaver, Kirsten Dunst and Renee Zellwegger are all Philip Kingsley clients.

The products are pricey, but remember that they are formulated to work together. Do not skip the shampoo, only to invest in the deep conditioner. I cannot emphasize enough how important it is to use the entire Philip Kingsley regime that is suitable for your hair type.

Ordinary shampoos are very drying and leave your hair brittle, tangly and stripped. Philip Kingsley shampoos do not.

I told a friend about the Philip Kingsley line. I decanted some samples for her, and I’ll never forget what she said after she tried them. She told me, “Well, I didn’t notice much difference with the shampoo but I am definitely going to buy the conditioner.”

Wrong.

You must, and I repeat MUST use a good, quality shampoo that will not strip and damage your hair. Philip Kingsley is the best.

But first you use the pre-shampoo treatment, the Elasticizer Extreme, which delivers elasticity and bounce to hair. Put it on dry hair or dampen the hair slightly so you use less product.

Use the Elasticizer Extreme once or twice a week, leave it on for at least 20 minutes before you jump in the shower and shampoo it out.

The Elasticizer Extreme also provides UV protection even after washing, helping prolong the life of color treatments.

You will notice a difference after the first use. It’s perfect for very damaged or coarse/curly or Afro-Caribbean hair types.

Elasticizer Extreme is targeted at a very specific hair type: extremely dry, porous and very thirsty.

Hair that is exceptionally processed and damaged is ideal for this product which will provide instant replenishment, hydration and nourishment.

Elasticizer Extreme has all the moisturizing ingredients of the regular Elasticizer, but with higher active doses of the components that can really make a difference to very dry, porous and thirsty hair.

Elasticizer Extreme is not an improved version of Elasticizer; it is for hair types in need of extreme help.

Follow with the Moisture Extreme conditioner–just run it through your hair and then rinse, no need to wait two minutes for the product to “penetrate,” and end it all with Kingsley’s Smooth Cream leave-in treatment to seal and protect the hair shaft, adding incredible shine and more UV protection.

Remember, there is a Philip Kingsley treatment line available for all hair types. If you cannot make it to the New York or London clinics for a personal evaluation, you can always call the New York Philip Kingsley Trichological Center via phone at 212-753-9600 for a personal consultation.

After reviewing your age, diet, hair type, medications and health, a trichologist will prescribe the products that are best for you.

Start the new year with a new commitment to beautiful, healthy hair and call Philip Kingsley today. Your hair will thank you.
