My Summer Beauty Routine: Shampoo and Hair Cream

My hair is “a poem” (French way to say: “hard work”)!

So no holiday for my very dry curly hair that requires constant care. The mix of sun-sea-sweat-oil and too-frequent shampoo, makes it brittle and dry up. Paradoxically it is the only “blessed” time of the year, I can let my hair “curls in the wind” (lol!). A real break for my scalp and my lengths. Except for the hair ends that tangle and are nodes. But I decided to simplify my summer hair routine.

1. For the shampoo : Karité intense nourishing shampoo (with shea butter) of René Furterer for extra dry hair and/or ethnic hair (1). Nice to apply and once the hair rinsed, it does not have this unbearable texture of wet straw! I also like the size of the package that I can easily take a trip.

2. On towel-dried hair, I apply a generous amount of Karité intense nourishing conditioning cream (with shea butter) of Rene Furterer (2). And I leave as much time I acn under a hot damp towel. If I go to the beach every day, at night I perfectly rinse my hair  with hot water (no shampoo) and finish by cold water to make it shine. I try to leave a few days between each shampoo.

3. I apply on damp hair a nourishing oil like the Monoi or the Huile de Palme (Palm Oil) of Leonor Greyl,  or my favourite Moisturizing Styling Ceam, with Quinoa oil of PhytoSpecific of (3). Sometimes I do not apply anything to let my hair breathe. And in the morning, I sheath again oil strand by strand, to prevent damage from salt, sand and sun. And then I forget my hair during the all day (lol!), basta cosi! If you have any suggestions or your special way to treat a very dry or Ethnic hair, please leave a comment or sent me an e-mail, I am always curious to discover a fantastic product!

Ma routine beauté de l’été: shampoing et crèmes cheveux

Mes cheveux, un poème! 

Donc pas de vacances pour mes cheveux frisés et très secs qui demandent des soins constants. Pire l’association soleil-mer-transpiration-huile-shampooing trop fréquents, les dessèchent et les rend cassant un maximum. Paradoxallement c’est la seule période “bénie” de l’année, où je ne les tire plus, toutes frisures au vent (lol!). Une vraie respiration pour mon cuir chevelu et mes longueurs. Pas pour les pointes qui s’emmêlent, font des noeuds. J’ai quand même tenu à simplifier ma routine cheveux été.

1. Pour le shampoing : Karité de René Furterer pour cheveux super secs et/ou éthniques (1). Agréable à appliquer et une fois rincé,  le cheveu n’a pas cette insupportable texture de paille mouillée! J’aime aussi sa contenance qui permet de l’emmener en voyage facilement (sans sombrer dans la mini-dose qui fait doucement sourire les grosses crinières!). 

2. Sur les cheveux légérement essorés, j’applique une dose généreuse de Crème revitalisante intense Karité de René Furterer (2) que je laisse poser un maximum de temps, sous une serviette humide et chaude. Si c’est plage tous les jours, le soir je rince parfaitement mes cheveux (sans shampooing), à l’eau chaude d’abord et finis par un jet d’eau froide pour les faire briller. J’essaie d’espacer les shampoings.

3. Sur le cheveux humides, j’applique une huile nourrissante, Monoï ou l’Huile de Palme de Leonor Greyl, soit mon inséparable Crème Hydratante Coiffante à l’huile de Quinoa de Phytospecific (3). Parfois je ne mets rien pour les laisser respirer. Et le matin, je les gaine à nouveau d’huile mèche par mèche, pour prévenir les dégats du sel-sable-et-soleil. Et je n’y pense plus, basta! Si vous avez des suggestions ou une manière particulière de soigner vos cheveux très secs ou éthniques, n’hésitez pas, je suis toujours curieuse de découvrir un nouveau super produit!

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!
