2020 is the year of fulfilment. And it's about your hair as well! They want to be treated with care and respect, according to their real needs. Because they can't talk, they've decided to write down their 10 resolutions to adopt this year.

1. 1. I'll respect the needs of my hair and scalp

Last year, I learned that I needed to take care of the scalp to keep my hair healthy. As the founder of Phyto Paris, Patrick Alès used to say: "beautiful hair cannot be conceived without a healthy scalp". Following his advice, I'll start using  PHYTOPOLLÉINE Pre-Shampoo once a week. It will stimulate, tone and rebalance the scalp as well as prepare it to receive other PHYTO treatments. 

2. I'll activate my scalp

The daily mission is to achieve a healthy scalp, to do so to I'll need to massage the scalp, with the help of my fingertips and circular gentle movements to make it supple and mobile: if it doesn't move, how can blood and oxygen get through? 🤔

TIP: Remember to brush your hair: the benefit is double since you move your hair and your scalp.

3. I’ll read the composition of the products

My number three goal: to adopt the most natural - and therefore most respectful hair care. No more chemicals nor harmful ingredients. Plant discoveries and innovations offer the possibility of effective and natural hair care! Why miss out on it?

4. I'll adopt a complete hair ritual.

 We are sculptors and artists. If the raw material is not good, we will not succeed in making our sculpture.

Cit. every hairdresser ever

I take care of my skin, my clothes, my shoes... but what about hair? I don't always do everything I need to do to keep it beautiful and healthy.
For this, I'll make sure to take time to do a complete ritual:

  • A pre-shampoo, once a week.
  • A shampoo, to gently cleanse and remove impurities.
  • A conditioner/mask, to meet the hair's needs while nourishing and moisturizing it properly.
  • A leave-in treatment to take care of your hair from morning to night.
  • Styling care, to shape the hairstyle while protecting the hair!

5. I'll take my time in the shower

Get rid of bad habits under the shower! 10 seconds to get your hair wet, 30 seconds to shampoo, then 15 seconds to remove the shampoo with large volumes of water. That, no more.

If you take the same time trying to wash a shirt as it takes to wash your hair, the shirt will come out all soapy. Think about it next time you'll be washing your hair. Of course, think also about the planet: no need to let the water run between washes.

6. I’ll apply daily leave-in treatments.

Just as your skin needs daily hydration, your hair needs a daily dose of care - a simple shampoo is often not enough.
There are several leave-in treatments for different hair types. 

TIP: Dry hair will need PHYTOJOBA Moisturizing Care Gel to be applied every morning. It will moisturize, protect and make hair soft and shiny all day long.
Coloured hair can use the PHYTOMILLESIME Beauty Concentrate or Protecting Mist: colour needs to be preserved as long as possible and every day, with dedicated care.
For those addicted to straightening or curling irons: PHYTOKERATINE Extreme Exceptional Cream. This thermo-protective treatment will prevent heat from damaging your beautiful hair!

7. I'll go to the hairdresser more often

And yes! Even the most beautiful hair has split ends that need a cut. Hair needs to be cut at least every 3 months, to make it healthier and conserve full-body lengths. I'll keep that in mind this year. 

Results? hair will be shinier, as split ends tend to make it dull. Moreover, a fresh haircut gives more volume and thickness to the hair! 

I need to remember that.

8. I’ll use a thermo-protective care

The basic rule when I blow dry, curl or straighten my hair. Always. Never forget about it.
While heat is the miracle solution for the prettiest hairstyles, it is also suicidal for your ends.
It is important to protect it as well as possible with each use to prevent it from becoming damaged and brittle.

TIP: Use PHYTOKÉRATINE EXTRÊME protective exceptional cream for full protection up to 450 degrees F.

9. I'll space out the use of shampoos...

And therefore blowdrying my hair.
Washing your hair too much has more of a negative impact than a positive one: the scalp becomes unbalanced and creates more sebum, as a result, hair can become extremely greasy or dry. 

10. I'll take as much care of myself as I take care of my hair!

The best resolution ever. Taking care of my hair is one of the fundamental steps in a holistic approach to taking care of myself.
Take the opportunity to eat healthy food, take better care of our body and mind, and put well-being at the center of our lives!

Happy new hair year 2020!
