Summer is officially here which usually means plenty of time in the sun and this can take serious toll on one’s hair. While we all (hopefully all of us) cover our bodies and faces in SPF we often neglect our hair. Damaged hair is never a pretty look so I along with my monthly protein treatments at Carlton International Hair I also use a bi-weekly at-home treatment. My current favourite being Philip Kingsley Elasticizer Extreme treatment.
This treatment seriously transforms your hair and is suitable for all hair types although if your hair is extremely fine than you might be better off with the original Elasticizer version. The Extreme is my go-to however as my hair is thicker and tends to be more damaged and porous thanks to all the heated tools I use. Elasticizer Extreme is an intensive, super-moisturising pre-shampoo treatment. It adds elasticity, bounce, shine and contains UV filters for protection.
You can pick yours up from the Rubybox store for R589 including free delivery. Well this isn’t exactly cheap it is reasonable considering each time you only need a small amount and in this case less is more. If you dump too much on your hair it can be difficult to wash out. This means that 150ml can last you well over 6 months when used bi-weekly.
