Which shampoo should I use?

The key is to be aware of your scalp’s needs: if you have dandruff or an irritated scalp, use shampoo that is made specifically to treat these issues.
If your scalp is healthy and you wish to focus more on the rest, it’s important to think about the nature of your hair. For example, coloured hair needs to be protected using PHYTOCOLOR while dry hair needs to be hydrated using PHYTOJOBA!

Tip No. 1: Saturate your hair

We have a tendency to jump into the shower, quickly wet our hair and start shampooing right away.
This is far from being the best way to wash your hair! With PHYTO products, the more water the shampoo is in contact with, the better it will lather and distribute itself to cover your scalp and the entire lengths of your hair. So, when you get into the shower, take the time to soak your hair completely through. You will instantly see a difference!

Tip No. 2: Use a small amount of shampoo

PHYTO Paris Shampoos are highly concentrated in active botanical ingredients, so it’s pointless to waste your Shampoo by using more than you need.
Here’s a simple trick to remind you of the amount you should ideally be using every time you shampoo:
  • If your hair is short or shoulder length, a dime-sized amount of shampoo is more than enough;
  • If your hair is long, a quarter-sized amount should do the trick.
Once you’ve poured the recommended quantity into the palm of your hand, take the time to emulsify the shampoo and create lather before you apply it onto your hair!

P.S.: PHYTO Paris Shampoos are sulfate free, which means they will lather less than regular shampoos that contain sulfate. Don’t worry, though. They are just as effective (if not more)!

Tip No. 3: Rinse well

You need more than a few seconds to properly rinse off your hair. It’s important to stay under the water as long as it takes to rinse out every trace of shampoo! To do so, rinse from root to tip while moving your hair under the water and massaging your scalp to eliminate any remaining lather.
The reason you need to do this is quite simple. Shampoo and the lather it creates are used to remove excess sebum, accumulated hair products and pollution from your hair. That’s why it’s so important to take the time to rinse your hair thoroughly.

Tip No. 4: Cleanse your scalp before the lengths of your hair

At the core of the PHYTO Paris philosophy is the idea that you should always take good care of your scalp since it is the foundation of your hair’s beauty!
This philosophy starts with the first step in your haircare process—shampoo!
Shampooing your hair twice is always the best approach. The first time to cleanse and care for your scalp and the second to focus on your lengths!
When cleansing your scalp, simply weave your fingers through your hair, all the way to the scalp, then gently massage (remember to scrub the entire scalp!). We guarantee this will keep it healthy!

Tip No. 5: Allow your shampoo to work a few minutes

Once you’ve lathered and rinsed a first time—it’s time to repeat. Unlike the first shampoo, which is intended for cleansing and eliminating impurities, the second round aims to provide extra care. After lathering the second time, wait a few minutes before rinsing to ensure your hair enjoys all of the benefits the shampoo has to offer.
Once you’ve rinsed, lathered and repeated, it’s time to give your hair some extra special treatment using the mask of your choice! Enjoy!
