During the time, I have been told you that I confront a scalps problem: mainly itchiness but also dandruff. But if dandruff appears only occasionally and does not represent the main problem, itchiness became unbearable. I did not find out a concrete cause of the problem, but it became serious after I used the Palette hair dye, on which I have been talked about here and here. Up to this hair dye, I never had allergic reactions problems to any coloring agents, so I cannot say for sure that the hair dye was the problem, but I do can say that after using it, my scalps problem aggravated. My two problems were “crowned” with an acute hair fall which got me desperate. I even cut my hair short enough, from having a 10 cm long hair over the shoulders line; I got it above the shoulders line. But even so, my problems persisted and I realized that solving my itchiness problem will solve the hair fall problem too. So, I started to buy different kinds of shampoos. I have a whole collection of shampoos which had no effect. On a first hair wash, they seemed to have some results, but on a second hair wash the problem reappeared.
This happened until I discovered the Philip Kingsley hair products collection. I was webbing on feelunique and, of course, I entered the shampoos collection in order to see what I should buy for my problem. There I saw Philip Kingsley Flaky Itchy Scalp Shampoo, who seemed perfect for my problems: itchiness and dandruff. It was the only shampoo with lots of positive feedback, so I looked after some opinions on blogs and, finding only positive opinions, I decided to buy it. Honestly, I was so depressed that I was capable to use anything in order to obtain some results. However, because of disappointing experiences with other shampoos, I decided to buy the 75 ml bottle, for a trial. Its price was of 10 pounds, about 60 lei. Except for the shampoo, I bought also a promotional box: Philip Kingsley Luscious Locks Christmas Cracker. I bought it as it had 2 hair care products on a promotional price of 4.5 pounds, about 27 lei. And I have been waited for my order arrival to have a trial.
In the package, I found the 75 ml shampoo, the tube with green writing on it, the 60 ml Elasticizer product (a tube similar with the shampoo one, with red writing on it) and the Daily Damage Defence spray of 60 ml – which means that all products were in a short variant, appropriate for trial. And it really was a trial, because I have been used the shampoo for about 2 weeks, with 3 hair washing per week, the Elasticizer for about 4 weeks because I did not used it for every hair washing, and the spray Daily Damage Defence still resists, meaning that it is not fully consumed because I use it in small quantities.
Although on the shampoo box it is indicated to use it daily, I have been used it only 3 times a week. This is my own routine, so I did not interrupt it. The miracle of this shampoo happened from its first use. The dandruff diminished the same for the itchiness. I was quite skeptical because other shampoos pleased me too on their first use, only to disappoint me on a second use. But this shampoo was different because upon its second use, the dandruff disappeared almost completely and the itchiness was like it never existed. For me, a bigger miracle was the fact that the hair fall diminished considerably. If before this shampoo I was losing a big quantity of hair springs on a single combing, after using Philips Kingsley shampoo, I barely loose 2 – 3 hair springs on a washing. The only problem occurred when it was over. I ordered it again, this time a 250 ml product, but until its arrival I had to use a normal shampoo, and the itchiness reappeared, although not so violent as in the beginning. Luckily, the hail fall kept its level of 2-3 hair springs on a washing.
In the above photo you have the ingredients, in case you are interested. Not to mention that I love the fact that each product has its directions printed both on the box and the bottle.
Elasticizer was another Philip Kingsley product which impressed me. On this occasion I learned something new about hair. The healthy one, upon washing is flexible and does not get broken, but the one having problems is not so flexible and it gets broken when washed. The Elasticizer product makes flexible the hair with problems and thus, it does not get broken. The product is to be applied on wet hair, leaving him to function for at least 20 minutes, after which the hair must be washed. This is the theory, because I do not have the necessary patience to act like this, so I apply the product on dry hair, I wait for above one hour and I wash it. From what I have read so far, it gives much better results used as normal, but I do not have the necessary patience. Anyway, the results are amazing. Hair is tangled free, soft, and easy to comb, and it feels thick and heavy as it should be.
In the above photo you have the ingredients, and if we were to exclude the curing agent from the list, its ingredients are: castor oil, olive oil, glycerin, citric acid and water.
The Daily Damage Defence is the third product upon which I want to talk about. It is a intense flavored spray, which I apply on my hair after washing. As I never get hair combing after washing until my hair is dry, probably the product distribution is not optimal. I still have no definite opinion about this product. I will come back with clarifications, as soon as I get convinced.
I wrote a quite long article, but these products worth it. I will come back with details when I will be fully convinced, for the moment I am very excited about the new products discovered and I submitted a new order for a shampoo in the 250 ml variant and for other Philip Kingsley products upon which I will talk after I test them.
