PhytoSpecific Changes How We ‘Type’ Our Hair

A couple of nights ago, the haircare powerhouse PhytoSpecific Paris invited a few bloggers out to view their newly launched range and I got in. 

PhytoSpecific are amongst the brands I hope to chance upon at a discounted price when I pop into TKMaxx, so to be invited to have a first look at their new range was quite a big deal…to me

The creme of the bunch

Bloggers get a whiff of the line

The range changed how we usually type hair i.e. the Type 1-4C was simplified into a Type 1 for a looser curl, Type 2 for the kinkier coiler moisture-fiend types like my mane and Type 3 for the sisters who like their hair permanently laid either relaxed and just straightened on the regular.  I am very pleased with the range because they do not overwhelm you when you open a pot. I do not mind the sweet smelling ranges that exist in the natural hair wishlists but for someone who is prone to migraines, this is a welcome mild-smelling range.

For performance, what I am keen on trying is the Phytotraxil with Anageline 10% + Darutoside to combat thinning of the edges due to traction alopecia. This is very relevant for me as I am currently protective styling through braids and the hair stylist usually ignore my whinging when they get to my edges. I currently fear the worst and may let my hairline breath as I wig it out for the rest of the autumn/winter. More on that later…

I am quite chuffed too to get the Baobab oil which is the new biggie in the oil clan to hit the beauty scene and this can be used as a pre treatment, think hot oil treatment and also post wash to seal in the moisture, The third gem is a night treatment for the hair. This will work nicely in my new hair regimen.

The range is obviously complete with shampoos and conditioners and for a pro service with the range, Errol Douglas and Afro Therapy are the places to go.

I will definitely update you all on how my hairline and general hair health fares with this range. Lord know, winter is not a curly girl’s bestie

Until later,
