BEAUTY MUST-HAVE: Philip Kingsley

BEAUTY MUST-HAVE: Philip Kingsley

So, holiday time (I know, again). The destination will be revealed shortly, as it’s a surprise for my sister’s hen do – who reads my blog religiously (well, she says she does). As we speak, she is probably being kidnapped by her friends in Norway who will take her to the airport. We’ll all meet up at the final destination for a fun-packed hen weekend – classy and sophisticated, no doubt.

As always, I like to be prepared for my holiday – both beauty and outfit option wise (overweight luggage is standard). So in terms of beauty products for this holiday, I have amongst some other essentials, acquired Philip Kingsley Swimcap (£16.95 for 150ml). I’m very familiar with the brand and the man – he’s a true legend within hair care, haven worked with numerous celebrity icons for over 45 years. Needless to say I was really excited to try his new holiday product range.

 So, what exactly is Swimcap?

It’s basically sun, swim & weather protection for your hair. It guards against discolouration and damage caused by weathering from sun (UV protection), chlorine, salt water and wind – whilst providing a super conditioning treatment for your hair.

How to use it?

It’s for all hair types. Prior to exposure, apply in sections to dampened hair, work or comb through evenly. Always reapply after swimming. Once exposure to weather/water is over, wash and condition hair as usual.

My initial worry was the liquid stinging when I went swimming, and that it would leave my hair greasy. I was reassured it does neither – it sinks straight in to your hair and scalp, leaving your hair super soft. I for one can’t wait to use it – in only a few hours if I’m lucky!

See you on the other side. Hasta luego!
