Phytospecific: The Perfect Home Treatment



After a complete diagnostic at Univers Phyto, I’ve received my prescription of 4… in fact 5 products!

If you’ve already known how difficult it is taking care of fragile dry hair, you’ll agree to get a shiny beautiful hair : first we need to find great hair products! In a previous post, I wrote about my haute couture relaxer experience in the Univers Phyto (in Paris).

Since then, I’ve started my second month of daily PHYTOSPECIFIC hair treatment at home (picture above). And like in the eighties tacky ads that make us smile : jumping in a taxi, the cab driver made me compliments for my “beautiful” hair, I was totally amazed! 

Each morning, I apply a dollop of the Moisturizing Styling Ceam, with Quinoa oil (1). 

Its texture is both rich and light that quickly feeds my hair, leaving a shiny look and a nice discret scent. So far away from cheap hair treatments! What a great pleasure to have a shiny hair not greasy! To run my hands through my hair ungreasy and unsticky at touch.

Once a week, I boost my hair with the Revitalizing Oil, with Castor Oil (2). If you ‘ve already known the thick awfull texture of the Castor Oil, you will be very surprided by the fluidity of the Revitalizing Oil. In the week-end, I wrap my hair with oil in a hot towel wrung out and leave it all day long. 

Then I rinse and make the Deep Restructuring Shampoo, with Methiosil and Sea Lavander (3).

To be honest, it’s the only one product I’m not crazy about it. But it gently cleans. So quickly I apply and enjoy my favourite product, the Deep Restructuring Balm, with Methiosil and Sea Lavander! Amazing perfume, peach-coloured and creamy texture : a perfect balm to be applied generously. 

I keep it one hour and when I rinse, my hair is silky, with big lustrous curls and waves. Absolutely beautiful! I don’t apply anything else and let my hair dry naturally. I tie my hair not very tightly, avoiding to make a brushing or to use a straightening iron (I never use it at home)!

And the hidden fifth element is the Ultra-Repair Night Treatment, with Amino Acids Hairspheres,

to apply 2 or 3 times a week. Same texture as the  Moisturizing Styling Ceam that nourrishes hair at night. When I wake up, my hair is very sweet and easy to style. For me PHYTOSPECIFIC hair treatment is really efficient and I enjoy using it.

Pleasure makes the regularity of the everyday care. First you might think, it’s too much work. Wrong, it’s relly quiclky to apply products and quickly the gesture becomes a – good – habit, thanks to results you can see and touch. Smoother my hair breaks less, with a natural shine.

This is a refine treatment hair for curly, frizzy and straightened hair, with a clean packaging! Yes, most of the packaging for ethnic products are so cheap and ugly, you don’t want to bring them in your bathroom! Thanks PHYTOSPECIFIC to get interest in your consumer tastes!
