It’s been high end hair this month!
I shampoo’d every week, co washing once because as you may have seen on my channel i straightened my kinky curly for the first time since going natural.
- Pre Shampoo with Philip Kingsley Elasticizer Extreme, almost a protein type of treatment that you apply to wet hair first and leave on for twenty minutes to restrengthen and soften the hair. It’s creamy in texture.
- Shampoo and condition with Philip Kingsley Moisture Extreme line, the shampoo is a runny sheer peach colour with an earthy but citrus scent and the conditioner match but with a white and lotion like texture.
- Ojon restorative treatment– i raved about this giving me a moisture kick when i first went natural, it’s an oil based pre-wash treatment
- Co wash with Ojon Rare Blend Moisture Rich Conditioning Cleanser– i’ve tried many a co-wash in my time and having tried their treatment i’ve been dying to try this since they released it.
A lot of silicones & sulphates which as you may know is basically stripping and then re-coating the hair and can be drying if used a lot especially on curly hair. Philip kingsley has specific formula’s based on your hair type and its very rare to see a high street or high end product that caters particularly to afro textured hair.
My hair felt really soft the elasticizer replenished and acted as my deep conditioner, though by personal preference i would like it thicker, and i can’t tell if my hair feels ‘good’ or if it’s the coating silicones. It’s also pretty pricey for the amount you get at around £18 for a tube and £30 for a tub of elasticizer but it’s not the most expensive out there and you can get trial kits for £25.
Ojon’s oil treatment sat on top of my hair, i loved it when i first went natural but perhaps now my hair longer i need to apply heat or try again when i haven’t been using a silicone conditioner. I love the co-wash it’s so softening and cleansed without any drying effect. The smell is kinda musky like an expensive spa, i like it though others may not.
My hair feels good. I will revisit using PK’s stuff and try ojon’s treatment again with heat. I’ll re purchase the co wash though at it’s price can’t swear it will be a staple. Ojon i believe is now owned by the origins brand and so their advertsing has changed would be cool to see afro haired girls on their the way Phillip does on his! I gave my ends a good trim.
Hair feels: Strong, ends are dry and tangled
