Philip Kingsley Elasticizer

  • Trichology is the scientific study of the hair and scalp. It stems from the Greek word ‘trichos’, meaning ‘hair’. A trichologist specialises in all matters relating to hair and scalp health.
  • Philip Kingsley’s famous pre-shampooing treatment Elasticizer was originally created for Audrey Hepburn.
  • Philip Kingsley products are based on working with the hair texture rather than the prevailing standard of normal, oily and dry. His concept is now widely accepted as the industry standard for hair care formulations.
  • Breakfast is the most important meal of the day for your body, and also for your hair. Energy to form hair cells is lowest first thing in the morning (or when you wake up!) Eat a balanced and nutritious breakfast of proteins and complex carbohydrates to give your hair a nutritional boost.
  • Your hair is the second fastest growing cell in your body, the fastest being your intestinal cells. However, unlike your intestines, hair is a non-essential tissue. Your metabolism doesn’t prioritise your hair’s needs, but instead aims to keep your essential tissues functioning first and foremost. This means your hair is usually the first to suffer from any bodily upset, and also the last to benefit from an improvement.
