Philip Kingsley Elasticizer Review and Photos. Rave

I’ve been using Philip Kingsley’s PK 4 HAIR vitamins for three months and have been seeing great results (will do a review later), so have decided  to try the brand’s cult product which is Elasticizer.

I’ve got the smallest tube ( £12.25 for 75 ml), to see how I like it before getting a full sized product.

I don’t have damaged or colour treated hair to begin with, but I do see great results anyway. Although, you should leave it for 10-20 minutes, I usually leave it on for a longer time while I am doing some kind of work around the house ( I use it in the evening). And then shampoo, as usual.

Usually (90%) I let my hair dry naturally and don’t style it in any way but, once again, I can see that my hair is soft, shiny and in a great condition, as if I have just visited the salon! It is definitely so much better than most hair products I’ve tried before. I actually don’t use conditioners as don’t see any results, but this is very different.

How to get Angelina Jolie’s New Hairstyle

angelina jolie

It seems that I haven’t seen new photos of Angelina for a long time. But at last here is the photo of  Angelina Jolie  at the Inglourious Basterds Premiere in Los Angeles. She looks so slim and her hair is lighter. Do you want to know how her hairstyle was created? This look was created by hairstylist David Babaii. And here is how he created it:

First, David applied Hair Polish to her entire mane followed by spraying Volcanic Ash Root Amplifier to the root area for lift and volume. Next, he parted hair into 3 sections (This is David’s “key” signature tip). Beginning at the nape area, he used the David Babaii for WildAid Blow Dryer with the nozzle attachment for direct styling.

To achieve her look, David blow dried her hair using a large round brush to smooth tresses straight and shiny. When done drying the entire head, he took large sections and wrapped hair around the same round brush. With the blow dryer and nozzle in hand, blow an additional blast of hot air for 10 seconds and then hit the cool button for a burst of cool air: this sets the shape. Carefully release the section from the brush and continue until you have completed the whole head.

To finish, spray Mise en Plis Light Styling Spray.

Favourite Beauty Products of 2012: Perfumes and Hair Care

It’s about time I write about my beauty favourites of 2012, right?

I am sorry that it took me absolutely ages to get around. I really loved reading such type of posts and watching such type of videos.

So, hopefully, you will like my list, too.

I will start with perfume and hair care, as these are the shortest categories (for me).

Perfume

Molecule 01 by Escentric Molecules

There was a lot of hype around this product this year and I have to admit that I am a fan, too.  You can read all the details about this fragrance here.

Jo Malone Blackberry and Bay Cologne

I have realised that I really love blackberry note in my perfumes.  Blackberry and Bay from Jo Malone was the scent I wore during my holiday in August and during all September so whenever I were it now, it makes me think of very nice moments in my life. As it was a Limited Edition, I only use it on the special occasions.

Illamasqua Freak Eau De Parfum

For me this is a super sexy scent,  but it’s not over the top, plus it lasts really well on me. No wonder that  people from Illamasqua are so proud of it. I have several samples but definitely have to get a full size.

Aromatherapy Associates Relax Candle

This has to be my favourite candle of 2012, as it does help to relax in the evening and is a high quality product. Read more about it here.

What is written about it:

I absolutely love this spray and was using it several times a week since the day I bought it. Here are the reasons why I think that it is great:

Elseve Nutri-Gloss Light Conditioning Shine Spray. Review

Last Tuesday I was invited to a wedding. This is how my mani and lips looked like. But what about my hair? I just wanted it to be straight and shiny. My hair is staright and shiny  but I wanted it to look better than usual. So I thought that it’s time to get some shine spray.

I’ ve tried several “shiny” products for hair but what was the result?  My hair became greasy and oily very soon and I had to wash it on the next day. But I still wanted to try something out so I went shopping and found this !I really like Nutri-Gloss Light Shampoo (read review here) so I wanted to give a try to this spray. Plus it is not expensive.

This is what is written about this spray. Information is from L’Oreal’s website.

Is your mid to long hair fine, or does it tend to get greasy? Does it need a light weight spritz to give it shine, and leave it instantly detangled?

The L’Oréal laboratories have developed Elseve Nutri-Gloss Light Conditioning Shine Spray. A leave-in shine enhancing conditioner you can use everyday, in a spray that’s light and quick to use. Weightless Detangling, Mirror Shine – Cashmere Touch.

So light, can be used as a conditioning boost: On damp hair after washing with shampoo & conditioner, or instead of regular conditioner depending on hair condition. On dry hair, with a light spray to tame hair between washes or on the go! No need to rinse. Can be used every day for daily gloss.


So did I like the effect and is it really true?
