Philip Kingsley is a hair care brand that I've often heard about but didn't really have much hands on experience with.
Little did I know that the brand, which makes the infamous Philip Kingsley Swimcap Conditioner (a beauty industry insider must have), also makes a host of products for curly, textured and chemically relaxed hair, as well as dry hair of all textures.
I'll be sharing several of my discoveries with you over the next few weeks, but the first one I fell in love with is the Smooth Cream from Philip Kingsley .
The medium-thick cream does everything it says it does: Meaning it provided my hair with beautiful shine, served as a great daily conditioner, and also protected hair from heat damage with blow dryers. My relaxed hair never felt greasy or weighed down - just soft and smooth with nice movement.
When trying it on a tester with curly hair, I noticed it was fantastic for taming frizz, shine, hydrating the hair - yet not weighing down the curls. It even aided in combing through curls more easily and with fewer tangles.
The scent is very chic and feminine - slightly floral and not too strong. It can be used on just washed damp hair before styling or dry hair as a daily conditioner, particularly on the ends.
It's also ideal to take out for a day in the sun as it also contains sunscreen for UV protection, and provides additional protection for those of you who may also have color-treated hair or highlights.This is a multi-tasking hair wonder that I'll never be without now! - RLB
