New PhytoSpecific Shampoo and Conditioner Range

I make no secret of the fact that I love the PhytoSpecific products.

PhytoSpecific are known for their premium botanical hair and skin products and their specialist botanical approach to health and beauty through hair and skin care products for vulnerable hair and skin types.  

Recently I tried one of  PhytoSpecific's new offerings the Rich Hydration Shampoo and Milk.

How to use:

  • Wet hair and apply shampoo
  • massage gently into scalp
  • Rinse
  • Repeat the application and leave for a few minutes
  • Rinse Thoroughly

Phyto's Speil:
The Rich Hydration products include natural ingredients: White Clover Honey to restore moisture balance to the hair shaft; Mallow Extraction to instantly soften hair and intensely hydrate the fibre; Pomegranate extract to nourish and regenerate even the most deficient hair fibres: Guava, Kiwi and Castor Oil for instant detangling and to deliver bounce, suppleness and shine to even the most unruly hair.

My 2p's Worth:
What a treat for three of my five senses!!
  • When you first pour out of the bottle, it looks like liquid silk, a delight for the eyes.
  • I only used a little to start and a little went a long way. A 10p sized dollop was more than enough to cover my whole head. Very smooth and lathered nicely for such a small amount. I unfortunately manged to get a bit on my ends and so my hair felt a bit dry after the wash, but very very clean
  •  and the smell.... OMG it smelt amazing and the smell didn't leave me for almost two days. I always complain when I am conscious of my hair because of a sweet or strong smell from products. But this was welcome. So nice!
It was an amazing treat for my hair

Phyto's Speil
Phytospecific Rich Hydration Milk gently restructures and revitalises delicate, dry hair. Formulated with canola oil and wheat proteins, sheen and lustre are restored to leave hair silky soft and beautifully shiny.
With its fine, delicate texture and its restructuring performance, Phytospecific Rich Hydration Milk leaves hair soft and beautifully shiny. While guar gum extract works to soften and smooth the hairs cuticles for easy detangling.

My 2p's Worth:
The treat didn't end with the shampoo and I was just amazed at how far this went, a small amount in my hand covered the ends and most of my hair and did I say about the smell. this smelt great, I just wanted to smell my hair all day. Any dryness from the shampoo wasn't apparent after using the conditioner. My hair felt moisturised and soft. So the conditioner made up for that!

I have relaxed hair and when I was finished with this my hair was straight all over, supple and easy to manage. I do always state that it really isnt about the products, but how you use them and the routine you stick to. However if you want to treat your hair to  a beautiful botanical mix, you have to try this. I have totally fallen in love with Phyto all over again.

Building a Regime:Leave In Conditioner

A leave-in conditioner is applied after you cleansing the hair and can be applied daily. This is left on the hair until the next wash day.

Most people will think that using a leave in conditioner is the same as greasing your hair daily. It is not. You will want a leave in conditioner that actually moisturises the hair and is absorbed into the hair and does not just stay/lie on it. Your hair craves moisture and a good leave in will leave your hair feeling free and soft, possibly even shiny, but not limp and greasy.

Some of the other leave ins I love are:
Elasta QP Oil Recovery Moisturiser ( I use this with their HTWOO Spray)
Mixed Chicks Leave in Condition

Mizani’s Moisturising Silkening Liquid Gel
Silky Locks K2H 365 leave-in conditioner
Suki Skincare’s Hair Scalp Conditioning Oil
Moroccan oil range

Coconut Oil as opposed to mineral oil (which is found in many black hair care products) is much more easily absorbed into the hair and has been used for centuries as a leave in conditioner on its own.
If you know of any others post below.

Our hair is prone to dryness so a good leave in conditioner is vital. Try and choose ones that do not contain petroleum jelly, petrolatum or mineral oil (but do not panic if they do, they may also contain other good nutrients).  Apply the moisturiser to the ends and do this daily or as your hair requires, it should make your hair feel soft and pliable. Also to help with keeping moisture in, a light oil (eg. olive) applied sparingly may be used  to seal moisture into the hair shaft and give your hair shine.
