Phytokeratine Repairing Heat Protecting Spray

Horrible! Rarely does one come across the product that does exactly the opposite of what it’s supposed to do. According to manufacturer, this “leave-in styling for damaged and brittle hair” is supposed to “protect hair from heat and make it easy to style”, so the hair is “more resistant, silky smooth and tamed”. So not true. My hair is fine, wavy (2B), coloured, long, slightly brittle and very prone to frizz. While I did not expect a miracle, I did hope it might improve the appearance of my hair or perhaps even make it feel or look (if not both) smoother or softer or shiner or tamed. But alas - not only my hair was not silky smooth or tamed, it was turned into a knotty, sticky, crunchy straw that was literally impossible to comb, let alone style. I was so shocked after the first use, that I decided to give it another few tries, because Phyto has some amazing products and I really wanted to give this one a benefit of the doubt. But it just didn’t work. It didn’t matter if the hair was wet, towel dried or dry, it didn’t matter if I sprayed it directly on my hair or first spread it between my palms, it didn’t matter if I used a little or a lot, this was just turning my poor hair into a complete and utter disaster, so I finally gave up trying. What a waste of time and money.

A lovely, mild daily-use shampoo that doesn't contain any nasties or silicones. I have coarse, thick hair with oily roots and often struggle to find a shampoo that is mild yet thoroughly cleanses. Whilst Phytojoba ticks all the boxes, I do still need to use a clarifying shampoo once a week as this doesn't remove enough sebum from my scalp/roots and leaves a very slight amount of residue. What I do love about it is how fantastic my hair feels once I've dried it - healthy and softer. I love the ingredients in this and the sweet coconutty fragrance in here which lingers in my hair for a good couple of hours after. It's a very runny formula which doesn't lather up quite as much as I like, but it's not such a biggie for me. Mild enough to use as often as I like and colorsafe too - this hasn't once affected my root touch ups, even when used on the same day. Pricey compared to a lot of other brands but worth it. Selena x ~ My HG list ~ (As I've sampled 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. I love constantly trying out new stuff - usually sample sizes via e-bay, also plenty courtesy of a friend who works at Sephora) 1. Hair Loss Treatment: ‘Divine Herbal’ - Hair Oil 2. Lip Balm: 'Nuxe' - Reve De Miel Lip Balm 3. Pigmentation + Anti-Ageing Treatment: ‘Divine Herbal’ - Facial Treatment Serum 4. Cleanser: 'Paula's Choice' - Skin Balancing Cleanser 5. Concealer: ‘Mac’ - Studio Finish Concealer 6. Lash Growth Serum: ‘Divine Herbal’ - Divinelash 7. Foundation/SPF: ‘Juice Beauty’ - Stem Cellular Repair (warm glow) 8. Face Scrub: ‘Sisley' - Botanical Gentle Buffing Cream 9. Moisturizer: ‘Lush' - Enzymion 10. Hand Cream: 'Origins' - Make A Difference Rejuvenating Hand Treatment
