Philip Kingsley Pre-Shampoo Elasticizer

16 Reviews


Originally created for Audrey Hepburn, Philip Kingsley’s Elasticizer ia an award-winning pre-shampoo treatment designed for all hair types. This unique products dramatically improves the health of broken or damaged hair, whether the result of chemical overprocessing, physical trauma or poor health. Frequest use of this treatment will restore suppleness, elasticity, shine and bounce without weighing down or cating the hair.

What we say:
‘This conditioning treatment is used before shampooing. And while it’s thick and creamy without much of a scent, the packaging is just as subtle – clean and unfussy. Phillip Kingsley’s Elasticizer is easy to apply, but because I have long hair I seemed to have used a lot of the 75ml tube in one application. But it definitely left my hair feeling nourished and moisturised and super smooth and straight after rinsing it out. Once I had dried my hair it definitely felt soft and silky.

‘The only drawback for me with this product is that it needs to be left on your hair for 20 to 30 minutes for maximum benefit, which means that it’s definitely not a quick option. So you need to have a bit of time on your hands.’
– Claire

I want it


I would love to try this but it seems very pricey for a single product so it will go onto my ‘when I’m a millionaire’ list.



At first I wondered what all the fuss was about until trying it out myself. Phillip Kingsley products are truly amazing. After my first use the results were fantastic. My hair looks and feels much healthier and shinier. I was amazed, no product has ever worked this great for me. It’s very pricey but worth the splurge. I’m really impressed and would highly recommend it.

pre shampoo elasticizer


very expensive but the review is good…anything for my hair….using the flat iron has done damage and looks like i found a way to make it look healthy again…..yay



This product is new to me but sounds nice and interesting. I would like to try it out for myself before actually purchasing it as it is a pretty penny

Love this Product


I bought the full size tub after I received samples of it because I loved it so much. You get the best results if you leave the product in longer than 15 minutes. This poses a problem especially if you prefer to treat your hair in shower. I treat my hair with this once a week. I usually just apply the product to my hair and then secure it with a fastener and cover my hair with a shower cap. Then make myself a cup of coffee and read 2 chapters of a book. When I’m done, I know its about time to rinse the product off.
When you rinse out the product, you get a wave of this greatly fragranced treatment. I adore it! While rinsing you can already swear you feel a difference in your hair.
It feels light, yet strong, and while rinsing you don’t have any tangles. After towel drying your comb goes through your hair very easily and after drying and styling, you are left with gorgeous, strong, and hair that seems to be glowing with shine.
Totally worth the price you pay for this tub. I would recommend to anyone who has heat damaged hair to take away the brittleness and frizz from heat styling regularly. Also great for humid conditions.

Sounds interesting

I would be quite interested to try this product as i find that conditioning treatments that you use after shampooing can leave your hair feeling a bit limp and even a bit oily looking. The price is a bit high, but if it was as good as they say i would keep buying it.
