Don’t Let An Oily Scalp Weigh You Down

Phytopolleine-1

Is your hair feeling a little too slick? It happens. Listen, striking a balance on the scalp is serious business. And while many people just happen to have naturally oily hair, sometimes the products and practices of their hair care routine don’t help the situation.

We have three simple tips to temper oily hair woes:

1)  Start using weekly hair masks designed for oily hair. Masks are amazing little nourishment enforcers that give your scalp and hair an extra little boost of love. Just make sure you choose one designed specifically for oily hair. PHYTODETOX Purifying Mask is the perfect pre-shampoo treat for oily hair. It gives the scalp an intense clean and gives your hair body and volume. It’s like a little botanical scalp reset with a refreshing Eucalyptus scent. The other members of the PHYTODETOX range are also worth exploring if you have oily hair. The Clarifying Shampoo and Rehab Mist are great purifiers to always have on hand for your hair care needs.

2)  Say no to dry shampoo. We know dry shampoo is all the rage, but it can actually increase oil and residue on your scalp and hair. Every time you spritz to refresh your hair you are actually clogging your scalp and encouraging oil to build up and weigh your hair down. Instead get a really good balancing shampoo, like PHYTOPANAMA. It’s safe to use daily and contains a patented ingredient, Progenium, that saves oily scalps without stripping it of what it needs.

3)  Use products that can effectively rebalance your scalp since that’s where healthy hair begins. When the pH levels of your scalp are balanced is when your hair thrives the most. Our best seller to help keep the scalp in check is, PHYTOPOLLEINE. Our 100% botanical treatment is the ultimate scalp elixir. It restores the balance of your scalp by gently cleansing to remove excess sebum and dandruff. It purifies and energizes while giving your scalp everything it needs to create the ideal environment to grow healthier hair. PHYTOCEDRAT, our antiseptic shampoo, is great for oily scalps and uses lemon oil, pine bark, geranium, rosemary, and sage to purify and rebalance.

The botanicals infused into every PHYTO product are what makes them so powerful. At PHYTO, we know the ins and outs of scalps and how to get them regulated and in the best position to grow healthier, more gorgeous hair!

Which PHYTO Shampoo is Right for You? | Behind the scenes at PHYTOSPECIFIC

CONTEST

 

 

 

Which PHYTO Shampoo is Right for You?

 

As silly as it sounds, we know it can be overwhelming to figure out which shampoo to buy. Every label touts a laundry list of different benefits. There are ones made for straight hair, curly hair, thick hair, fine hair, colored hair and everything in between. Shampoo is definitely not one size fits all since every head of hair is different. That’s why Phyto creates shampoos to address every need, but we also want to help you easily figure out what’s best for your locks.

Here's a little peek into four of our shampoos and how you will know if they are right for your hair.

WHICH PHYTO SHAMPOO IS RIGHT FOR YOU?

Looking for a daily shampoo great for all hair types? Introducing PHYTOPROGENIUM. Gentle enough to use every day, the prebiotics complex helps regulate the microbiota of the scalp and preserves its balance.

If you need something to moisturize dry hair, check out PHYTOJOBA. It softens stressed out locks with a deliciously smelling blend of jojoba milk and mallow flower

Want a little more volume? PHYTOVOLUME will do the trick with its lightweight lather and slightly textured gentle cleansing formula. It’s the bamboo extract that really gets the volume going and leaves you with soft, bouncy hair.   

Maybe your locks need a little purifying. This happens a lot if you have oily hair and our PHYTOCEDRAT uses lemon essential oil to regulate sebum secretion and sanitize your scalp. Your hair will feel so fresh and so clean.

Rest assured that regardless of your hair type we have something that will help you reach and maintain your hair goals. This is just a small sampling of what PHYTO does. We are hair and scalp enthusiasts and want to help you find the products that work best for you!

HAIR CARE TREND: SCALP TREATMENTS

HAIR CARE TREND: SCALP TREATMENTS

Leading the way in scalp health is Dréa Richard, owner of André Richard Salon (130 Chestnut St., 215-735-1590). Here you can learn far more about (and see more of) your scalp than you ever thought possible, thanks to the Phyto scalp analysis. André Richard is the only salon in the area to offer the service.

Using a capilliscope that’s hooked up to a laptop, Richard runs the penlike device through your hair and watches the screen, where your follicles are magnified 200 times. The goal is to diagnose the condition of your scalp, the density of your hair, and the volume of your strands. Once you get past any squeamishness about seeing what your scalp looks like up close, it’s fascinating what you can learn. Turns out a shiny scalp doesn’t mean you have shiny hair; it means you’ve been overdoing it with silicone-based products. Too much shampoo and conditioner can make your tresses lackluster. “Your scalp needs to be balanced,” says Richard.  “Then you’ll have your optimal hair.”

But before Richard begins any treatment, she’s on the lookout for anything that doesn’t appear normal. Over the years, she has alerted numerous clients to suspicious bumps, moles, or other anomalies, sending them straight to a dermatologist. “Part of your training in beauty school,” she says, “is to spot certain skin conditions—and learn what to do or not to do when you see them.” Richard stresses, however, that a stylist can’t diagnose skin cancer or any type of skin condition. Professor George Cotsarelis, MD, chair of the dermatology department at the University of Pennsylvania’s Perelman School of Medicine, wholeheartedly agrees. “I’ve seen dozens of patients who were referred by hairstylists,” she says. “They’re used to seeing so many scalps that they know what’s normal and what looks different or suspicious.”
