I may be in the minority here but I LOVE this product! Although I didn't notice any results on hair loss I do find it incredibly stimulating and at the same time soothing to my scalp - and it feels a lot healthier too afterwards. I actually adore the aroma, yes it's volatile, very green and citrusy and although highly concentrated it doesn't bother me in the least as I like essential oils in general and this is like a combination of all my favorite ones! I use this about 30 minutes before washing my hair. I do find the glass bottle a bit difficult as you cannot squeeze the product out, you have to shake it over your head to dispense anything and just hope to god it's not half the contents!I tend to use this at least once per month and this is one of those rare products that I actually start to miss if I don't apply it every so often. The aroma, the soothing and tingling sensations combined feel amazing on my scalp, especially after a hot, muggy day when your head needs clearing. The powerful nature of essential oils means this may not be suited to those with very sensitive or irritated scalps, but other than that and the fact that some may not like the aroma, it is definitely worth a try. If unsure, it's perhaps worth trying out the sample size that sometimes becomes available.Selena x~ My HG list ~(I've sampled many 100s of skin, hair and m/u products over the last decade and a half, as I love constantly trying out new stuff - usually sample sizes via e-bay, also plenty courtesy of a friend who works at Sephora.

Hair loss....that dreaded moment we all face at some point when our hair brush seems to be carrying off most of our hair with it. I purchased a box of this at Sephora as an SA recommended to try this (having run out of my usual hair loss treatment). What I liked about Phytocyane is that it wasn't greasy in any way, however it was slightly harsh on my scalp, probably due to the high alcohol content which made my scalp itch slightly. I applied this 3 times every week to my hair after washing and towel drying. I think this step is very important as it clears the scalp of sebum and debris, allowing the product to work better. I think some of the negative reviews could be due to scalp build-up not letting the product penetrate properly. But I'm just guessing to be fair. Not every product works for every person who uses it. During the time that I used it, I did notice a slight difference in the amount of visible hair shedding, however at the expense of a slightly irritated scalp. I understand the alcohols function as a carrier for the botanicals but it would be good if Phyto could find a suitable and gentler replacement. In general I love this brand and their ingredients/philosophy but this product wouldn't be a re-purchase for me unfortunately.

I am a 34 year old male. I have experienced hair thinning for a while and decided to try both the Phyto PHYTOLIUM 4 and PHYTOCYANE SERUMS. First I used the PHYTOLIUM 4, I followed the instructions and found the packaging was easy to use. I didn't see any significant results however. I perhaps noticed less fall out but no new growth. I finished the entire box but I don't think I will repurchase. I decided to try the PHYTOCYANE SERUM next because I thought perhaps my thinning was increased by stress. I absolutely hated the packaging. The little ampules were difficult to. break open and the tip attachment did not stay on tight causing the product to leak everywhere. I also did not see any improvements to my hair. I finished the entire box, I will not repurchase.

The smell. THE SMELL! The smell is SO overwhelming..! Prepare for a rant please--my apologies in advance. I am a lover of all things Phyto, and this shampoo is a huge disappointment. I'm not sensitive to smell, so that's not it. I looked up some reviews on Amazon first, and many mentioned the "light" fragrance of this shampoo. On the contrary, this shampoo is more heavily scented than ANY other personal care product I have ever used. It's like washing your hair with actual perfume that happens to also foam up with water. In fact, it was so intense it gave me a sharp headache, and made it hard to sleep that night (I shower in the morning) because the smell of my own hair was so strong. The scent never fades, not all day, not at all, and here is the kicker: I washed it out the next day with a different shampoo, TWICE, and a conditioner...AND THE SCENT OF THIS SHAMPOO IS STILL IN MY HAIR. :0 What in the hell?! It's like that Seinfeld episode where Elaine picks up a bad odor in her hair from Jerry's car and nothing she does can wash the smell out. This fragrance WILL NOT die...like this fragrance ain't leaving you for love or for money...and it's not a pleasant, natural fragrance. It's like one of those strong synthetic-y perfumes from the 80's--like Giorgio or Red Door, etc. Furthermore, whatever is in the formula (I'm guessing it's the freakish amount of fragrance) caused my neck to feel coated and kind of like I had a sunburn. After showering the skin on my hands and arms was abnormally dry...it even made my cuticles dry out completely the way dishwashing liquid can. And strangest of all (and I had read an Amazon review that said the same thing, and just assumed they were crazy), it made my scalp "sore". Like not allergic sore, but a strange ache, like how a sore muscle feels. But...my scalp. So yeah, a headache, burning neck, and sore scalp--which I didn't know could even be a thing. In the meantime, my roots didn't get very clean after 2 full washes, and my hair looked...not great. No special shine or volume or any of that Phyto magic I've come to love over the years. Just kind of fuzzy and crunchy. Probably because I basically washed my hair with A BOTTLE OF FOAMING PERFUME. Phyto, I love you, I love your products, but this one really needs a revamp. :( If you can use this shampoo without being driven to insanity by the scent, God bless because you are a gifted and special individual. PS-This shampoo also gave me a lot of fall-out in the shower, probably because: Perfume.

This is a really nice leave-in product that would work great for fine or easily weighed down hair. It's called a lightweight oil but the texture feels more like a light gel-cream moisturizer that you might use on your face. I have fine, 2B frizzy waves and I've been using this over the past few months. I love that it gives me moisture without weighing my waves down. It also layers well with other styling products. I typically apply it too damp hair (before my usual styling products) but I have also applied it dry hair to tame frizz. It works well both ways. I also like that this is free of heavy silicones. My one complaint is that this contains sunflower seed oil, which can be drying for some hair types. My hair can't handle pure sunflower seed oil but it does alright with it in this base. However if Phyto decided to take it out and swap it with a different oil, I wouldn't complain :) otherwise, I think it's a great product. It's pricey at $40, but my bottle has lasted a long time.
