Rated 3 out of 5 by justderico Jury's still out
Never used any PK products before but after seeing presentation for this and reading rave reviews thought I would give it a go. My hairs very coarse and wiry so anything that will add softness and shine is a godsend! The texture of this is quite unusual, slippery but a bit waxy. However I followed instructions, left it on for 20 minutes then shampood it out and conditioned afterwards. My hair didnt feel any different at all. In fact if anythingit seemed to feel drier! After using my hairdryer and straightners my hair was shiny and soft but I put this down to nexxus shampoo and conditioner and Percy & Reed no oil oil rather than the elasticizer. Maybe I need to give it a few goes before I see and feel a difference? Not sure but I will perservere for a while.

Rated 5 out of 5 by missgreyhound It works!
I apply this generously to dry hair at night, before washing my hair the following morning. It soaks straight into the hair shaft and leaves absolutely nothing on my pillows.

Rated 2 out of 5 by lillywhizz Cant get to grips with this at all
I've read reviews on this, and still bought it, hoping it would make my blonde hair shiny, but all it succeeded in doing was making it very very greasy. Expensive mistake, this is now sat on my bathroom shelf, and I can't bring myself to use it again. :(

Rated 5 out of 5 by LoubyLu Good result
I purchased the extreme version, and have only used it once, but wanted to give a review.
I think I either used too much, or didn't wash it out completely, because after using this my hair felt limp, greasy and lank. I washed it again 2 days later, and the results are now obvious! My hair is shiny, full of volume and healthy looking. It even styles better and keeps its shape nicely. Next time I will use less product, and will shampoo twice to remove all residue. Despite the slight hitch, I will definitely be using this again and again

Rated 5 out of 5 by Christathea Perseverance pays off
Bought this product on the strength of the many many positive reviews. My hair was in a sorry state- dull, extremely dry, absolutely no shine and was so unmanageable. It was the worst ive ever experienced with my hair,- colouring and constant hair straightening had destroyed my naturally thick, wavy coarse hair texture I was literally at my wits end. Anyway had to give this a go because nothing else was working. I initially used it as prescribed on dampened hair with the cap on- and tried it this way for at least 3-4 times but no joy, hair was still as dull and dry as ever and seemed heavily coated. I didnt want to give up when so many others had seen great results. I then did my own investigation into alternative ways of using this product that others had gotten positive results with. I tried using it as a post shampoo deep conditioning treatment but that didnt work out either so then tried another method used by others where you just apply it straight onto dry hair, If this didnt work out for me then I knew I would not be reordering this product again. Well......... this method is the ONLY method I have seen results with on my hair. Hair has regained its softness, shine , bounce and manageability after only 2 rounds of this method. I dont even bother with the cap just lather 4 pumps straight onto my hair and really work it through the hair shaft. I leave it if I can for about an hour, less if I have not as much time. I have however also in the meantime had a lot of the 'bad,damaged hair cut off - there is still a lot left but I am currently on a journey to hair health and this product along with no more straightening and embracing my natural hair texture as often as i can as well as regular hair trims is helping me on my way. - Im actually getting to really like my natural waves and because this product has improved the condition of my hair it seems to be really helping with defining those waves, giving them a seperated soft and shiny definition. ( Liz earle hair oil is helping out here too but thats another review!!!)
I guess what I'm trying to say is if you haven't seen results and are ready to dismiss this as just another overpriced product that doesnt work -DONT GIVE UP- it really does work, you just might need to try a different approach like I did. In my case perseverance really did pay off.

Rated 5 out of 5 by prince Best conditioner I've ever used!!
I thought I would give a review of the above, I don't do anything special, don't even damp my hair just put it on dry hair pre-wash, leave for about ten mins sometimes longer and the results are simply astounding. For a start My hair feels thicker, stronger and the colour looks better. It is always better after using this conditioner, try it and you won't be disappointed.

Rated 1 out of 5 by Gimlet Not for fine hair, not for me
I have wanted to try this for ages, the amount of five star reviews show that it must be an excellent product that helps many people.
However, the effect it had on my own hair was simply awful. I washed it out with a fairly mild, moisturising bar shampoo that I use and it simply didn't go. 8 hours later my hair still felt damp and very lank and greasy. I managed to attend an exercise class with it put up and this morning washed it out again.
As an ex hairdresser I used the method that we used to use to get olive oil out years ago, ie neat shampoo, gradually adding more water, then rinse and shampoo again.
My hair does feel quite soft now but nothing I can't achieve with a much cheaper product (or a bottle of olive oil). I can imagine that this would work a treat on those with thick, frizzy hair but on my thick but fine, dead straight hair it was a disaster.
Packaging it back for the return with some disappointment.

Rated 5 out of 5 by CUBBY AMAZING MIRACLE BODY AND BOUNCE
I have used this product now for the last 3 years ... it is absolutely marvelous. I have quite a lot of hair, and it is quite long, but this product really does give excellent body and beautiful shine to my hair. I also use PK Body Building shampoo and Moisture and Balance Conditioner. I vary the times I leave this in the hair .... sometimes 15-30 minutes and sometimes overnight. It is the most useful item I have ever bought for fine hair, and over processed hair (which mine has been at times) and I really cannot believe that anyone doesn't find their hair full and bouncy after this treatment. The one thing to remember is, wet hair and towel dry, put Elasticiser into hair and when done, RINSE and rinse well, twice. Then shampoo with the appropriate shampoo, which normally would be Body Building, I think after Elasticiser ... and then the correct conditioner.
There is nothing like it ... and I never buy other products now. I did once buy Ojon but stopped that when they sold out to Estee Lauder ... it was never the same afterwards, and in any case I really do JUST LOVE PK. Packaging is plain, but the product surpasses all.
