Philip Kingsley Elasticizer


I have been trying to grow my hair out and with the color processing and heat styling my porous, curly hair was starting to look a little sad. I had tried a few deep conditioners and while they made my hair softer they didn’t really change the feel or look of my hair.

When I first opened the Philip Kingsley Elasticizer I was surprised I needed to use this before I shampooed. I followed the directions and parted my damp hair working the Elasticizer through each section. After I had thoroughly coated my strands I put on the enclosed plastic cap and let it work its magic for 20 minutes.

(You can see how thick and rich the Philip Kinglsey Elasticizer is)

After washing my hair it definitely felt different not just soft but also stronger. Brushing my hair it seemed less prone to breakage. I have been using this for 2 weeks, 2-3 times a week and I love it. My hair is less frizzy, breaks less and looks and feels really healthy. My hair texture has improved so much I am wearing it down and letting it air dry and I actually like how it looks. This is definitely a must have for anyone with dry, damaged or color treated hair. It is on the spendy side but a little goes a long way and the results are worth every penny.

Another cool fact, Philip Kingsley Elasticizer was originally created for Audrey Hepburn, whose hair was wrecked from constant coloring. How cool is that?

The world’s first pre-shampoo conditioning treatment and our hero product. Healthy hair stretches when wet before returning to its original length when dry.However hair in poor condition snaps and breaks when stretched.

Intensely moisturizing Elasticizer delivers a rush of moisture to the hair’s cuticle; suppleness, elasticity and bounce appear instantly without weighing down or coating the hair. Visible results from one application that improve with continued use. Fragrance free. Use once a week as a minimum for best results.

The Philip Kingsley Elasticizer is available for $45 at

Nicki Minaj’s Minajesty Fragrance Commercial


Nicki just released the commercial for her latest fragrance Minajesty. Like always it’s over the top, do you like it? Hate it?

I have to say her bottles don’t appeal to me but her last scent Pink Friday is one of my favorite scents. It might look a bit over the top but the scent is amazing and at the end of the day its not how the bottle looks it how the fragrance smells. I can’t wait to see if Minajesty can live up to her last fragrance.

Nicki Minaj “Minajesty”
Rapper, former American Idol judge and new Kmart collection designer Nicki Minaj has released the 30 second commercial for her new royal fragrance. The signature perfume, a scent that clearly belongs to a queen, is not Nicki’s first addition to the celebrity scent world. Before she entered the castle gates guarded by two extreme hotties, she was treating her fans to Pink Friday, a smell-good beauty buy that comes in a container decked out with, of course, pale pink locks.

Minajesty is available for purchase now, prices run from $20-$65
