This was the biggest waste of money. I have dry, curly hair and lots of it. I thought this would be good to give moisture to my ends specially on second day hair. It does absolutely nothing. If anything, my hair feels brittle after i've used it. and if I dare use it above my ends, it flakes. I tried it on wet hair, dry hair and made no difference. maybe it works on normal, healthy hair. But on my dry 3a curls, it was a bust.
I was excited to try this product, given so many rave reviews about it. I have colour-treated, dry, damaged hair, and was under the impression this product would add moisture and help heal my hair. It did absolutely nothing of the sort. In fact, I couldn't wait to wash it out. I felt like I had some kind of film on my hair, and it didn't feel soft, smooth, or healthy at all. (I applied about a dime-sized amount to damp my hair.) Don't know what all the hype is about. This product is ridiculously over-priced and does nothing beneficial for hair at all.
I have soft, baby fine hair. What I mean is I literally have hair like a baby. So shampoos and conditioners are hard for me to find- most shampoos are too harsh and most conditioners too heavy. After years of searching I've found my HG in hair care by using whatever light baby shampoo I can find (right now I am using a German brand called Hipp but it could change) and rubbing a hazelnut sized amount of either the Phyto 7 or the Phyto 9 into my shoulder length hair, focusing on the tips.
I also use the Phyto 7 and to be fair, I can't tell much difference between the two, so I just pick up whichever one is in the pharmacy that day.
I would be in hair care nirvana if they would bring back the Phyto baby shampoo.
One tube lasts me four or five months. Im a bad girl who washes her hair every day, so this is with daily use.
I love this product - it's not easy to find a leave in conditioner without silicones - but it is stupid expensive. I think the people who were disappointed in it are used to the results of a silicone product & perhaps they want a mirror sheen - I'm not going for that - I want some smoothing into curl definition & liveliness. I don't blow dry - I just work this into my hair after my shower w/ a little Ouidad Tress FX & I'm good to go.
I like that it is not too heavy on the moisture so there's no worry about greasiness.
I have long, very dry colour treated hair. Phyto makes it soft and shiny, without silicone or chemicals that weigh your hair down or turn it into a sticky mess. You only need a tiny amount to turn your hair smooth and shiny. Really like this.
I have damaged permed hair that feels really hard and straw like. When my hair was slightly damp I used about a nickel size for my medium-long hair (ends at top of boob) and let my hair air dry. My hair looked very voluminous and felt soft and full of body. I used to use Moroccan oil before this, I like this much better.
It makes your hair soft. It's best combined with a gel or some type of shaping lotion for style and anti-frizz factor. It's not going to keep your hair from being frizzy, but it is going to help the condition of your hair. If you look for it to do something other than what it's designed for, it is going to disappoint you. It says "nourishing" on the bottle, not frizz-tamer, heavy conditioner, etc. It's expensive because it's imported. In France, this stuff is found in every pharmacy and is not particularly pricey or exclusive. The euro is higher than the dollar currently, but don't go blaming Phyto for that..
I think the people who don't like this product are looking for it to be heavier than it is. But that's what is so great about it - that it isn't heavy and it makes your hair feel softer. I used to use this with phytodefrisant to calm down my curls naturally for a wavier style - with no heat products. This is a special product because it's healthy for your hair with NO silicones. I like both the phyto 9 & 7. I don't find the 9 that much more conditioning than the 7. Often I would alternate..
I do miss my most favorite Phyto product that got reformulated ~5 years ago - phytoplage moisturizing after-sun creme. Omg, it was to die for...
Did absolutely nothing for my hair, no moisturizing, nada. Had hoped that this would be enough and I wouldn't have to use any styling products, but not only was my hair still parched and straw-like it remained frizzy as well. Tiny tube for the cost, and the recommended pea-size amount is hardly enough to cover my shoulder length thick hair. Returning.
I was a bit disappointed by this. Phyto's Phytokarite deep conditioner is my absolute HG, so I bought this in anticipation of great things - but it's just...meh.
It's not bad, as such - I have given it two lippes because Iguess it perhaps make my hair feel a little softer and I like the fact that it is all natural ingredients and no silicon, but the results simply aren't amazing and don't seem to last very long at all. It makes no difference with frizz, especially with the humidity in Singapore where we live currently, and there are much better cheaper alternatives on the market.
Not bad, not great, just...not really anything, really! Won't be repurchasing.
Don't like the metal tube but after years of seeing this in various hairdressers salons thought I'd try it as have had no luck with drugstore/chemist buys and am at end of my tether.
So disappointed. Feels nice like a cream but then does nothing for my hair at all. Really surprised, it doesn't even make it greasy looking if I put more than the pea sized amount on. Such an expensive waste, my hairdresser used it on the ends of my hair before she blow dried and actually, they looked neat for two days but that isn't long considering it was a blow dry - she also used Philip Kingsley smoother cream which didn't work at all.
Gutted cos still looking for the perfect hair moisturiser and finishing product that will leave my hair smelling nice, non greasy, non-matt, piecey and soft with a bit of hold. Not too much to ask I don't think.
