Review of Philip Kingsley Moisture Balancing Conditioner by felgoj
I got this conditioner as part of the Jet Set kit (I wanted to try Elasticizer) & used the included conditioner & shampoo in tandem w/the treatment.
I like the conditioner a lot but I am not a fan of its silicone content (I'm trying to avoid it) so I really don't know whether I'd give it another go-round after I finish this small bottle... I would like to, it works really nicely & it's improving the texture & behavior of my damaged hair, but the silicone... ugh.
Presently it detangles my hair beautifully, it takes a MUCH smaller amount to slip through my hair than 99% of all other conditioners I've ever tried (the other 1% are conditioners I loved & worked just as well but have all been discontinued), sinks into the hair to actually moisturize it (not simply coat the surface), rinses out nicely, & afterward it actually leaves my previously-fried crispy hair feeling soft & restored to health, shine, bounce, movement.... Is this the result of a few days of Moisture Balance conditioner, or the PK Elasticizer treatment I applied last week, or the combination of both? IDK yet.
Someone else said that Elasticizer works best with Moisture Conditioner..they're not absolutely necessary together, but I have to agree. They are both excellent products in their own right, & if you don't mind the (painful) expense they are both worth having.
I just can't justify a 5 rating on account of the amodimethicone.. I still want to get away from that stuff as much as possible. For now I will tolerate some from Philip Kingsley .. but only temporarily & sporadically..
