The Essentials – Philip Kingsley’s Elasticizer

Elasticizer – Philip Kingsley

I totally get that having Audrey Hepburn as one of your style icons is a complete and utter fashion cliché but I can’t help it, she is, and you can leave now if you wish.

For those who don’t mind, I’ll carry on. The Elasticizer by Philip Kingsley is one of those cult products that has been around for a good while but I had yet to try it. Made especially for Audrey Hepburn whilst she was shooting a movie in London, and needed something to rescue her hair from the many trials and tribulations of having her hair styled on set everyday.

I’ve slotted The Elasticizer into my Travel Companion list as I do find I have more time on holiday for the extra beauty bits and bobs that I like to squeeze into an already over exaggerated beauty regime. And is it good? Well it leaves your hair soft and noticeably more moisturised after one application which is not something to ignore and like Philip Kingsley says, if it’s good enough for Audrey Hepburn…
