PHYTO Hair Care is a pioneer in natural hair products and botanical science. Clinically proven, all-natural hair care made with environmental consciousness.

The Phyto line began 60 years ago in the countryside of Southern France. Patrick Al├Ęs, a world-renowned hair stylist, had a vision of creating plant-based haircare products using environmentally conscious methods. By harnessing the power of plants and testing numerous formulas in his own salon, he developed what is now a legendary haircare line. His extensive range of treatments and styling products target all hairtypes, providing complete protection with botanical remedies. Eco-friendly packaging for each product is Phyto's winning, finishing touch.Putting natures best secrets to work in the name of natural beauty, Phyto focuses on three ecological commitments:

  • Respect for the plant world
  • Respect for hair
  • Respect for the environment

This summer I received beautiful gift from Phyto Canada  - 4 products to get my hair back to "shape" so I wanted to share with you my opinion about their true botanical power.

Phytolisse - Ultra-Glossing Finishing Serum, specifically formulated to smooth curls and frizz, this product is amazing - not only it has beautiful scent but also brings incredible softness to hair. Althea extract and pro-vitamin B5 hydrate and protect hair without weighing it down!

Ultra-Glossing Finishing Serum

Phytokeratine - Repairing thermal protectant spray - heat-activated and heat-protecting styling spray works to reconstruct and consolidate hair's structure while protecting from hot tools and preventing breakage. The unique ingredients, such as botanical keratin, hyaluronic acid, extract of yun zhi do their miracles - your hair becomes stronger ( I am still working on it), silkier and shinier!!

Repairing Thermal Protectant Spray

Phytokeratine - Repairing Serum - great serum for damaged lengths and ends. This powerful serum fills gaps on hairs outer layer to smooth surface and restore shine. While repairing and protecting damaged ends, it creates a silky, supple finish and gives the feeling of a fresh, new cut!!
I like the fact there is no parabens, sulfates and phthalates!!
The results are amazing - try to use it for a month at least to experience the difference!!! 

Repairing Serum

Phytolaque Soie - Hair Spray with Silk Proteins - is a light-hold hair spray that smooths and controls hair; has a clean scent, gently holds and controls hair & imparts a subtle shine.
What I love about it - it leaves zero stickness or buildup and leaves a silky feel!!

With the world as its laboratory and frequent travels as the source of ultimate inspiration, The House of Creed debuts a collection of five refined fragrances that bottle international exploration and the finest raw materials. Each new fragrance harnesses the brand’s signature infusion technique capturing not only the highest concentration of natural essential oils, but also the spirit of adventure that has become a staple in the family’s sixth generation master perfumer Olivier Creed’s creations. 

Experiencing these new scents is embarking on an international journey through the deft nose of the world’s most coveted perfume dynasty passed down from father to son for seven generations. Creed is the only fragrance house to rely on a 4,000-year-old infusion technique. This labor-intensive process preserves the originality of each scent's ingredients without the use of preservatives. The result is raw and rare materials gathered across continents that have been steeped and distilled by the skilful hand of the Creed family.

You will find 5 beautiful fragrances in the collection, including Asian Green Tea (Citrus), Cedre Blanc (Floral Woody), Iris Tubereuse (Floral), Aberdeen Lavander (Green-Rich) and Vetiver Geranium (Floral Woody).
