Team Trials: Tame Flyaways, Ban Breakages & Hail Healthy Hair

It’s time for the second peek inside the March Birchbox – we are so excited to share that every subscriber will receive a hair care hero from Philip Kingsley – either Elasticizer or Smooth Cream. As always, we put them to the test – here’s more info about each product and why we’re excited you’ll receive one this month:

Philip Kingsley Spoiler

Mica (Editorial Marketing Copywriter) shared her first impressions of the Smooth Cream:

My hair type is super frizzy and coarse yet also quite prone to flyaways – nightmare!! I tried Philip Kingsley’s Smooth Cream after washing and blowdrying my hair as normal and it left the ends feeling really conditioned and smooth. When running over my hair with the straighteners they literally glided over the strands – making styling it an absolute DREAM! On second day hair I just applied a little more to the mid lengths and also at the roots to smooth down any flyaways and it made everything super shiny without leaving my hair limp – something that I hate about other smoothing and shine products I’ve tried!

Beth (Senior Editorial Manager) has a long-time love of Elasticizer:

I’ve been dyeing my hair blonde for years, so a fabulous hair mask to help keep my strands unbreakable and in shape is a must-have. For the past couple of years I’ve been using Philip Kingsley’s Elasticizer every week as a pre-shampoo treatment. Really pre. Think the night before. Yes, I dampen my hair, douse the mid-lengths to ends in Elasticizer, put a plastic cap on (or just throw an old t-shirt over my pillow), and head to the land of nod. You can apply it 20mins before your shower if this doesn’t appeal! I wash it out in the shower and then shampoo and condition as normal. It’s truly added an elasticity to my hair, cutting down breakages and making my hair look visibly healthier, plus it’s so much easier to style.
