What You Need To Know:
Elasticizer is a cult-favourite hair mask - one sells every minute worldwide. Many people would deem it perfect, but Philip Kingsley has made it even better for some. The trichologist-developed (specialists in issues like hair loss and the scalp) formula is now infused with a fruity-floral mango and hibiscus aroma. The perfect addition to any self-care advocate’s routine, the delicious smell transports your senses straight to a tropical island. The Carabao mango, grown in the Philippines, is the world’s sweetest mango, while hibiscus’s soft floral tones add a touch of sophistication.
Deeply conditioning, the Elasticizer is a must-have for over-worked and over-styled hair; it promotes elasticity, minimizes breakage and damage while locking in moisture, and improves manageability. The formula contains hydrolyzed elastin, a flexible protein naturally found in the hair to strengthen hair strands. Castor oil, olive oil and glycerin are to thank for Elasticizer’s hydrating qualities. Unlike other oils, castor and olive oil are emulsified oils that penetrate and deeply condition to rehydrate and improve shine, leaving your hair feeling brand new without feeling heavy or greasy.
Why It’s Escentual:
Fragrance is huge part of Escentual’s story - ‘scent’ is even in our name! Aromas have the power to whisk your mind far and wide, which is the ultimate moment of escapism. We also appreciate Philip Kingsley’s effort to provide something for everyone. Fragrance-free fans can opt for the original Elasticizer, while those who love their beauty routine to smell good can choose this Carabao mango and hibiscus edition for a delicious sensory experience.
Did you know that the original Elasticizer was created for Hollywood royalty? Philip Kingsley created the formula for Audrey Hepburn’s hair because it was receiving regular colouring and styling on movie sets. It remains a celebrity favourite today, too, with celebrities Cate Blanchett, Kate Winslet, Rochelle Humes and Georgia May Jagger, among some of its A-list fans. The mango hibiscus scent is the perfect finishing touch to the world-renowned Elasticiser treatment.
The Best Way To Use It:
For best results use the Elasticizer regularly; we recommend twice a week.
Use as a pre shampoo by applying to thoroughly wet hair in sections. Work into hair fingertips, cover with the included shower cap and leave for 10-20 minutes. Rinse well and follow with shampoo and conditioner (rinse twice if you have finer hair). Or, if you prefer, apply before bed as an overnight mask, and wash out in the morning.
Apply a generous amount to coarse, wavy, curly, and frizzy hair. If you notice the formula sinking in and disappearing, apply more until your hair feels slippery. The drier your hair is, the more Elasticizer it’ll need.
Wait 72 hours after colouring/dying your hair before using the Elasticizer as it may affect how your colour takes.
The Sustainable Side:
Philip Kingsley bottles and tubes are created from either sugarcane bioplastic, made from a fully renewable origin, or post-consumer recycled plastic (PCR) created from single-use plastic that would otherwise end up in landfills. Philip Kingsley’s innovative and eco-friendly packaging designs reduce landfill waste, plastic pollution and their overall pollution, greenhouse gas emissions and resources.
Free from parabens, SLS and sulphates.
