Phyto Paris

 Hi my loves! Long time no post, I apologize but it has been craziness over here! Our house is finally (and sadly) under contract, so that means some downtime this week and then the moving starts. So I'm sorry to say that this spotty posting may be common for a while, but I'll be back to annoy you soon enough!

If you know me, you know I'm super duper lazy with my hair. In fact I just cut it off in order to avoid doing anything to it. I generally buy cheap shampoos and conditioners are target and maybe use Organix every once in a while. In summary, I suck. but when the gorgeous Lilian reached out and asked if I'd like to try some of the Phyto Paris* range I jumped at the chance! Phyto is a botanical hair care line that was born in Paris and fairly recently launched in the US.

I have been using several products from the Volume range, as well as the Phytokératine Extreme and PhytopolléinePhytopolléine is a scalp treatment made of a blend of botanical oils to soothe and balance the scalp. I've had a fairly dry scalp this winter (gross), which has led to an overproduction of oil meaning I need to wash my hair wayyy more often. And no one has time for that. I've only used this a handful of times but so far I'm really liking it. It feels quite clarifying and cleans without leaving your hair feeling stripped, it hasn't totally relieved my dry scalp but I feel like it's on the fast track. The Phytovolume shampoo is designed for finer hair and brings body and bounce. My hair borders on fine, but I have a lot of it, so I often find that things that are supposed to be volumizing end up weighing it down. This not only smells delish but also leaves my hair feeling really bouncy. It's super gentle and leaving my hair feeling healthy and shiny, especially when paired with the Phytobaume. This is one of the only conditioners I feel okay loading up on because I know it won't weigh my hair down. My only complaint about this combo is the packaging of the shampoo. It is gorgeous, but has no stopper so it kind of just spills out of the metal bottle and I feel like I'm being a bit wasteful!
After washing my hair, I use the Phytokératine Extreme which is basically a serum for your hair. I tend to do this every other wash as it is quite rich, but leaves your hair super soft and smooth. Obviously I've just cut my hair off but I think I'm noticing a change in the strength of my hair. I don't hair any split ends so far and it's almost frizz-free (which is incredible in this humidity). This is also a thermal protectant so is awesome for those of you that heat style often! The final product, and my absolute favourite, is the Phytovolume Actif. If you're familiar with the Bumble and Bumble Thickening Spray, this is along those lines. It's a volumizing spray that leaves hair looking full, but is texturizing instead of sticky.

Have you guys tried anything from the Phyto range? Hopefully this review was somewhat helpful, I'm obviously not very well versed in hair care! I'll probably be repurchasing the shampoo and conditioner as they're fairly inexpensive, but I'm not sure I can get myself to spend money on the other styling products! We shall see.
