The founders of Phyto Hair Care believe that “there is no such thing as bad hair; there is only poorly treated hair.” Based on this belief, Mr. Patrick Ales, Phyto founder and innovator, created a product line that combines the healing power of plants with his knowledge of how different hair types and conditions should be treated.
Mr. Ales opened his first salon in 1969 where he styled the hair of legendary women from Jacqueline Kennedy Onassis to Catherine Deneuve. He experimented with different essential oils and plants to create shampoos, conditioners, and styling aids that were fit for the rich and famous. Today, Ales’s salon is still in existence and his stylists and Phyto formulas have remained true to the founder’s philosophy. All products are still “scientifically designed and tested in order to reveal beautiful, healthy hair.”
The Phyto Hair Care line consists of formulas for dry hair, ultra-dry hair, color-treated hair, lifeless hair, frizzy hair, curly hair, aging hair, hair loss, dandruff, sun damaged hair, oily hair, sensitive scalps, and even the special concerns associated with gray/white hair. The Phyto Hair Care line utilizes dozens of different essential oils and plants. These ingredients are organic and cruelty-free. Just a few all natural, vegan and vegetarian ingredients include shea butter, orange blossom, passion flower extract, black currant, sunflower extract, yarrow extract, mango extract, olive oil, rush nut oil, sugar cane, matricary flower, galangal extract, bamboo marrow, grapefruit extract, ginkgo biloba, and lotus flower.
Phyto Hair Care features systems for each hair type and condition. These systems are extensive, and according to Phyto fans, they are also effective. There are so many systems, we can’t list the all here, but a good example of Phyto’s top systems is the dry hair system. The information listed below comes directly from the Phyto website.
Dry Hair: The hair often splits along its length.
The physiological causes of dry hair include a depletion of hydrolipidic film, which forms a barrier for the hair fiber against external stress factors.
Although hair tends to be naturally dry, chemical processes (coloring, bleaching) and mechanical processes (blow-drying, straightening) dehydrate hair. These factors are harmful to the keratin in the hair and increase the porosity of the cuticle. As a result, moisture contained in the hair fiber evaporates, leaving hair dehydrated.
