This will be a short review because I feel bad writing it but it’s the truth. I used the Phyto Phytolium 4 to help with my naturally thinning hair. I used an entire box and then repurchased and almost finished the second box. I stopped because I noticed my hair was falling out and had become significantly thinner. This product was the only change I made in my hair care. Also I had no other life events or issues that would have caused such drastic hair loss. This happened to me about 6 months ago and I’m still working to improve my hair with micro needling. Obviously there is no proof this product caused my thinning but it was the only change I made to my hair in over 2 years. I wish I had just been content with my hair before I used this product because I would have a lot more then I do now :-(

I read these are excellent for hair loss & strengthening hair as well as nails. Absolutely had to try it out! Well...as much as I was looking forward to seeing some benefits from these after reading all the positive reviews, I started developing cystic acne and had to stop within a week. Not seen acne that bad in many years. I didn't understand at first what I had changed, whether something in my diet or stress or a skincare product. I had a hunch it could have been this as it was the only thing different during that time. I realized that just after I took the 2 tablet dose for the day and then stashed the bottle away so that I don't take any more out of habit. In the next couple of days my skin cleared up to its normal state which can't just be a coincidence. A shame as I love the brands products in general, especially their 'Phytopolleine scalp treatment' which I use regularly and swear by. As these are quite pricey (I got mine for $60 from Ulta) I gave them to my mum who didn't have any adverse reaction nor anything positive to say about them. Could be that she needed to take them for longer to see something? In any case she didn't purchase anymore once the bottle ran out so I guess we'll never know...Selena x~ My HG list ~(As I've sampled many 100s of skin, hair and m/u products over the last decade and a half, I thought it might be useful to share my top 10 must-have products, subject to change if and when I come across something more effective.

EDIT:It has been a month since dying my hair. The color is still going on strong! I love it. The warm neutral sheen is still present from my roots all down to the ends. Recommend the dye!OLD REVIEW:It’s a shame there aren’t many reviews for this color. I am on my day 8 since coloring my hair. I bought the shade 7; my natural hair is between 6 and 7 (dark blond/light brown). I colored my hair for 2 years now every 1-3 months using the L’Oreal 7.1 Excellence. Prior I was doing every three months highlights for two years at hairdressers. After those two years I noticed my hair got dried out and overly blond at the ends; starting from my shin to the middle of my back. It looked although like an ombré really unkept. I decided to use Phyto since I couldn’t find a semi-perm at my local drugstore departments and didn’t want to cash out too much money every few months at the hairdressers. I have long hair, middle of my back. I’m 28 years. No greys yet. What I didn’t like about the Excellence line:Whilst I loved the color and the conditener that comes with it it felt like it was heavily drying for my hair. It didn’t last long (~2 months; then my lower part of hair started getting the ombré look). Even worse results I received with 7.1 Preference which lasted for just a month when it got back to square one. What I like about Phyto:It’s not that I was into the all natural thing I thought it may be more conditioning for the hair, even if I had to recolor it every 1-2 months. Sadly the price is 2x of Excelence. The color ended up being the color I wanted. Although it doesn’t have that pear finish I usually was into (.1) the natural undertone didn’t pick up my red pigment that is present in my natural hair. After keeping it for a little bit longer on my hair, my hair didn’t feel like straw. The bottle is ok but I had to cut it since there is 20 ml less that in L’Oreal dyes. I bought one packaging as per usual. The conditioner is not worth mentioning as it comes in sample size so I used my L’Oreal conditioner which I had still left from my previous dying. I used the conditioner as a mask for 30 mins. I washed it only once with Plant 21 since coloring. I have itchy scalp with thinning hair. It didn’t wash our the color which seems to be the problem with this shampoo. For now I would recommend the dye since it was pleasant to use (no teary eyes, semi-silky outcome, desired look and color). I added the photo of my hair - sorry for the picture not being perfect. This is the color / photo taken next morning after the application. One picture is how my colored hair used to look, how it looked after the application and wash, and how it looked dry. I used to like Casting but they do not offer the shade which may be internationally sold: cold dark blond.

I must be in the minority because this did nothing more than Elvive Cica cream on my overprocessed hair. It probably achieved this effect through more natural ingredients but ultimately I did not experience stronger, better hair although I used more than one bottle. It made my hair very soft, yes. However, it caused flyways and I found my hair always a bit matte after using it. I love the smell, the sturdy glass bottle and the concept but I expect better effects on my overprocessed hair at this price point.

My hair likes silicones but I prefer using them with leave-in products. I bought this mask both because it is not loaded with silicones (it had polyquat- 10 though) and it claims to restore hair with phyto keratines. It was amazing at first (my hair had good volume, hold and shine) but then I stopped noticing the effects. It may be very good on hair that is healthier than mine and needs less protein. However, for overprocessed hair like mine that is in need of lots of protein, this mask does not surprass my HG protein (Redken CAT), which ends up more affordable than this.
