Philip Kingsley Re-Moisturizing vs. Moisture Extreme?
Firstly, look at and actually feel the texture of your hair. Philip Kingsley Re-Moisturizing Shampoo and Re-Moisturizing Conditioner are designed for those with coarse hair, whilst Philip Kingsley Moisture Extreme Shampoo and Moisture Extreme Conditioner are for those with Afro, Hispanic and all variations of ethnic textured hair. Interestingly, even though ethnic textured/Afro hair is often described as being ‘thick’, each individual hair in fact has a fine diameter. For those with coarse hair, each individual strand is thick in diameter. Coarse hair feels rough in texture and you may feel like you have a lot of it. Ethnic textured/Afro hair types are ALWAYS curly. However, coarse hair can both be wavy, curly and even sometimes straight. If your hair is naturally straight you can have coarse hair provided that the width and feel of each strand of hair is thick/coarse.
Secondly, if you do have curly/wavy hair, you should look at the actual curl of your hair. Philip Kingsley Re-Moisturizing Shampoo and Conditioner are designed for those with ‘very wavy, curly or frizzy hair’, whilst the Philip Kingsley Moisture Extreme Shampoo and Conditioner are for ‘extremely porous, tight curls’. Basically if you have hair that consists of loose curls or is very wavy, you should use the Re-Moisturizing products, but if your hair is curly and these curls are extremely tight, naturally fall into ringlets, or you have Afro hair you should go for Moisture Extreme.
Thirdly, look at the condition of your hair. What products you should use depend heavily on this. If you have coarse or very wavy hair that is also processed, damaged or dry you should opt for Re-Moisturizing Shampoo, but use the Moisture Extreme Conditioner with it to provide extra conditioning and protection. The Shampoo, however, should always adhere to your hair’s actual texture, or you run the risk of weighing it down.
The benefits of Philip Kingsley Re-Moisturizing Shampoo and Conditioner and Philip Kingsley Moisture Extreme Shampoo and Conditioner to you hair.
The makeup of ethnic textured/Afro hair is unique and therefore requires special care. The hair shaft has a flat shape with a twisted structure and a thin diameter. Where these ‘twists’ occur, there is actually a change in the hair’s width (think of what happens when you bend or twist a straw). Because of these twists and curls this hair type also breaks and tangles easily and the tangles can be quite awful. These factors make ethnic textured/Afro hair the most susceptible to damage and breakage and therefore the most in need of moisture and protection. Moisture Extreme Shampoo and Conditioner were specifically designed to address these needs, helping to repair hair and stop breakage. The Moisture Extreme Shampoo provides gentle yet efficient cleaning, moisturizing the hair without stripping it of its natural oils and making it easy to comb when wet or dry. This helps to prevent breakage as you are not pulling on your hair. The intensively moisturizing ingredients of Moisture Extreme Conditioner, such as its 4 naturally derived oils: Almond oil, Avocado oil, Wheatgerm Oil and Babassu oil; work together to condition the hair from its inner cortex to the outer layers, providing much needed elasticity, nourishment and shine. The Conditioner also contains essential nutrients such as proteins, vitamins A, D, E and B6, magnesium, copper, iron, amino acids and folic acid, all of which are vital for hair growth, health and beauty.
Coarse hair can either be oval or round in shape and is often naturally wavy or curly, but can also be straight. Re-Moisturizing Shampoo and Conditioner have specifically been formulated to treat coarse hair types, whether straight, wavy or curly. The Re-Moisturizing Shampoo provides the hair with gentle cleansing, yet also deeply conditions and improves the hairs tensile strength and stretch. The conditioner also improves the hairs elasticity and both conditions the surface and inner structure of each hair, thus further reducing breakage of hair. The use of ingredients such as Oat Proteins improves the hairs texture and its ability to retain moisture, whilst the addition of Guar keeps that annoying frizz at bay throughout the day.
Both Re-Moisturizing and Moisture Extreme Shampoo and Conditioner smooth the hair, reduce frizz and add brilliant shine, leaving hair softer and more manageable. For best results, use these products in conjunction with the Philip Kingsley award winning weekly Elasticizer Extreme treatment.
