The hair growth cycle

First of all, it is important to know that very often actresses and influencers with beautiful hair... wear extensions. YAS QUEEN! Because keeping hair as long as possible to make it beautiful, soft and shiny is a daily challenge.

Before you start, it is important to remember how hair growth works. Indeed, it follows a well-defined cycle!

The hair follicle is the cocoon of the hair. It is its root, nestled in the heart of the scalp. This follicle can create 25 hairs in the course of a lifetime! For these 25 cycles, the pattern is the same:

the anagen phase - active hair growth - which corresponds to the production of hair initiated by the stem cell. This phase lasts an average of 4 to 6 years in women and 2 to 4 years in men. In a healthy scalp, 85% of the hair is in the anagen phase.

This is followed by the catagen phase when growth is interrupted: in three weeks, the follicle shortens, decreases in volume and is evacuated from the epidermis.
The telogen phase corresponds to hair loss when the stem detaches and falls out. The rest of the follicle goes into dormancy.

Hair loss corresponds to the telogen phase. Sometimes the hair follicle has reached the end of its 25 cycles and will not produce new hair. Other times, the hair follicle goes into dormancy, it does not go back into the anagen phase - the growth phase - and some treatments are able to wake it up to start it up again! 

The first signs of hair loss

From the end of puberty, men can observe the very beginnings of androgenetic alopecia. Although reversible, it must be treated as quickly as possible. For this, trust PHYTOLIUM+ Treatment: its objective is to preserve the hair assets.
The treatment's formula is able to increase the resistance and preserve the appearance of the hair thanks to a duo of new active ingredients: Shiitake extract and vitamin B3.

How to use it: After shampooing, while hair is damp, apply the treatment to the crown of your scalp, section by section, using the applicator tip.
Measure to the first line of the cylinder: massage and allow to penetrate. Do not rinse. A 3-month cure is recommended for optimal effectiveness

Step number 1: Identify your hair loss type and understand it

There are 2 types of hair loss.

First, reactional hair loss, which is characterized by a fairly significant but temporary hair loss. It can appear at certain times of the year - especially during the change of season - or at certain times of life: fatigue, stress, pregnancy... Indeed, your hair is sensitive to its environment and lets you know it! This hair loss affects all sexes, but it is true that because of strong hormonal variations, women are more often victims.

Then, there’s chronic hair loss: if you notice that your hair is falling in quite large quantities every day for more than 6 months, it is certainly because you suffer from chronic hair loss.
Androgenetic alopecia affects men more often than women. This is because the drop is due to an increase in androstanolone (DHT), a hormone derived from testosterone. Hair loss in men is located on the top of the skull or at the hairline, at the top of the forehead. However, women can also lose their hair. The location will be less defined, giving the impression of thinning hair.

Step number 2: Fight against hair loss

Reactional hair loss

If untreated, successive reactive hair loss can lead to chronic, i.e. permanent, hair loss.
Each hair loss weakens the hair fibre, ultimately leading to thinned hair, with no strength nor beauty. Generally speaking, you have less volume and sometimes even the impression of a visible scalp.
The PHYTOCYANE Revitalizing serum has been developed to fight against this type of reactional hair loss: in 3 months, the hair loss is slowed down. Moreover, this treatment does not overlook the beauty of your hair! They are brighter and more voluminous from the first application.

Directions of use: wash your hair with PHYTOCYANE Shampoo.

In attack phase: 1 vial 3 times a week for 1 month. In the maintenance phase: 1 vial per week for 2 months.
1. Break the vial and place the applicator tip.
2. Apply the contents of the ampoule section by section to towel-dried hair on the scalp.
3. Massage lightly to promote product penetration.
4. Style your hair.

Chronic Hair Loss

More common in men, it can be slowed down by PHYTONOVATHRIX Ultimate hair loss treatment. It targets all factors to promote hair growth: prolongation of the anagen phase (hair growth), energy production necessary for hair growth. This 99% natural treatment stimulates growth, slows down hair loss and makes your hair stronger and denser!

Directions of use: After PHYTONOVATHRIX Shampoo, on towel-dried hair, apply the entire vial using the applicator tip to the scalp, section by section, then gently massage your scalp. DO NOT RINSE. Style the hair. Use 3 times a week for 3 months!


Food is the main source of nutrients necessary for the development of healthy hair: some vitamins, fatty acids, and other nutrients are indispensable for natural healthy growth, as they also affect your overall health. If you suffer from iron or vitamin deficiency, your scalp will suffer as a result.

If you want to be sure that you are providing your body with all the necessary nutrients, choose PHYTOPHANERE vitamin supplements for hair & nails. It'll make your hair and nails stronger and healthier. Thanks to vitamins B, C and E, essential fatty acids and plant extracts, this food supplement helps fighting hair loss and stimulates hair and nails.

Directions of use: 2 capsules per day, for 3 months, and your hair and nails will thank you!

Daily Habits

In addition to the right haircare to be used, there is a series of gestures to adopt to avoid hair loss.
First, massage and stimulate your scalp. Why should you do this? Because movement makes the scalp move, which stimulates blood microcirculation and oxygenation, fundamental for the health of the scalp and hair!
How does it work? By simply brushing your hair! Brushing also stimulates the scalp, distributes sebum over the lengths and removes fallen hair and split ends to leave space for new hair to grow!
For the massage, it's very simple: just place our 10 fingers on the scalp, then make circular movements for 30 seconds. The objective: to lift the scalp and make it move, to make sure it is mobile and active!

We hope that we have answered all your concerns, and above all that we have shown you that there really ARE solutions to fight against hair loss and never lose your hair again!
