The month of love


‘Tis the month of love… and my love affair continues (and this time I’m not talking about Dan!). My love is… a beauty Pick of the Month again. For those not in the know, a Pick of the Month at QVC is a chance to buy with a superb price offer and without any P&P charge, oh and still with our superb 30-day money back guarantee.

This month it is Philip Kingsley’s Elasticizer but in a whole new guise. It is STILL the same incredible pre-shampoo hair treatment, STILL completely reliable, STILL the same superb formula originally created by Philip for Audrey Hepburn no less and STILL the simplest way to get full, bouncy, better behaved hair! This time however it is with the divine fragrance layered through of Coconut Breeze.


At QVC you have loved the special edition fragrances we have had, first the Neroli and then the Rhubarb and Elderflower and no, inspired by the Kingsley family holidays, the spectacular Coconut Breeze. It is yummy and oh how nice this month to be transported into a holiday mode just by smelling it. Bring on the beaches, the exotic cocktails, the warmth and sunshine. Yes please!

I usually sleep in my treatment for ease but often just wetting my hair at the sink and adding Elasticizer even for just five or ten minutes really does totally work. Don’t think it’s just for people with lots of hair as I know many people who use it because they have fine and fragile hair. It’s a clever formula, only penetrating and taking in what your hair needs, the rest simply rinses away.
So simply pop it onto dry hair that you’re going to be washing with water, leave for, well, however long suits you, just make it over three minutes to allow it to work. Then simply shampoo and condition as normal. The result is healthy, shiny vibrant hair.

So as my quest to warm up my hair colour continues, and as advised by Annabelle Kingsley I’m not using Elasticizer prior to or for two days after colour, Miss Maddie said she would do the honours for me and has made a little video for you to see how she uses it.

I am not very good at the filming bit I have to say, she on the other hand did a super job. She has a wonderful mane of hair which is often commented on due to its great condition so it seemed perfect for her to show you.

We hope you find it helpful and enjoyable!


Claire and Maddie xx

    Hi Claire, I have a daughter called Maddie too. She has incredible hair just like your Maddie. I think it is lovely that you are passing on grooming tips to your daughter, I do the same. I can’t get over how confident your daughter was at presenting the elasticizer, a career in tv or film would come natural to her.

    Kind regards

    Dear Claire

    Your daughter Maddie is a natural on camera and also has beautiful hair. You must be very proud of her.

    Jane, THANKYOU so much , I certainly didn’t have such a mane at 12.. She is a lucky girl, tho at bedtime when she decides to wash it.. Its not such a good plan as delays her bedtime as takes a while to dry .. Possibly why she chooses then to wash it!!! X
