As someone whose curls would be prown to quite a bit of frizz, I would have been using mousse most of my life to control my hair. But what I used to find with the mousses I used was that they left my hair kind of limp and lifeless. Now while I didnt want flyaway hair either, I did find that there was often a residue left on my hair that was fine on day 1 but there was no way I was getting away without washing my hair the following day. And for someone whos been colouring my hair for years, that meant that the colours would fade sooo much faster. Not ideal by any means.
I've always been a fan of the PHYTO products, but started using PHYTOMIST after I got it at our Natural Beauty Event last October and I love it! As a leave-in conditioning spray, its light and you dont feel like youve got any product on your hair at all. I find it controls the frizz and gives my curls some definition without being too sculpted not a look I like unless Ive somewhere special to go ;) It also helps to detangle, which any of you with curls will understand is very important.
My hair would also be a bit on the dry side naturally, and I find that PHYTOMIST keeps it soft and nourished. Even my hairdresser has noticed a difference, and I just find that when I get my highlights done its not drying out as much. It also smells quite nice too, which never hurts! Its a real citrus smell, rather than the toxic smells you get from a mainstream hair sprays.
Since the Natural Beauty Event last October, Ive been using all PHYTO products.
Their representative at the event, Leanne, sold me on the range and I havent looked back. At the moment Im using PHYTOCYANE, which is their densifying treatment shampoo, as well as using the PHYTOBAUME Repair Conditioner. I also have their PHYTO 7 product in my toiletries bag at home for keeping my hair smooth on nights out.
Now, these products are a little on the pricey side when compared with your main branded products, but they are natural and are free from many of the chemicals that are present in other cheaper products. Plus, I can tell you hand on heart that they last Forever! Ive been using a PHYTOCYANE that I bought in January and its only this week Im coming to the end of the bottle. You really dont use much so they do work out good value in the long run. I look at it as being cheaper than a regular trip to the hairdressers :)
I should also tell you that PHYTO also have a fab range of conditioning masques if you’re staying in this week-end and looking for a treat-to-self.
