Editor’s Pick: the insiders’ must-haves


Jess Clark

M& beauty editor


Give dry and over-styled locks a nourishing boost with Philip Kingsley’s deeply moisturising Elasticizer hair mask, recommends M& beauty editor, Jess Clark.

Few products have the credentials of Philip Kingsley’s multi-award winning Elasticizer, which turns 40 this year. Originally created for Audrey Hepburn by Kingsley himself – he’s a trichologist (hair specialist) – to address the effects of over-styling on set, this product has since gained a reputation as the ultimate pre-wash hair treatment. Containing oils, humectants (which attract and lock in moisture) and protein (elastin), plus a small amount of silicone, hair is left soft, smooth and incredibly bouncy, with no added weight.
