Elasticizer - Learn More | Philip Kingsley

Elasticizer, the iconic overnight hair mask treatment, was originally created over 40 years ago for Audrey Hepburn to keep her hair looking healthy and beautiful whilst on set, due to constant processing and styling taking its toll. The world’s first pre-shampoo treatment has since become a beauty icon, with an incredible celebrity following, including Cate Blanchett, Kate Winslet and Georgia Jagger. The multi-award winning hair product has won over 28 awards and has dramatically improved the health of countless heads of hair.

How to use
