Phyto à Porter Frequent Use Collection Review

Several months ago while out and about I decided to browse the hair products at Sephora.  I came across the cutest little travel sets by Phyto.   The mini haircare collection kits are exclusive to Sephora and you have your choice of three categories: Dry hair, Color, or Frequent Use.  I chose the Frequent Use Collection to try on my sister who is transitioning from relaxed hair.  Oh, I can't go on without letting you know that I have heard amazing things about the PhytoSpecific Phytorelaxer,  a non chemical,egg and soya based relaxer that is good for all hair types (a review by Felicia on ThisThatBeauty)   Now, let me get back to the mini collection that delivered maximum results.  I"m going to list what was in the kit and how i felt about each one individually

Phytoprogenium Shampoo- is lightly scented clear with a serum texture. It spreads evenly and gives a good lather. The hair was thoroughly clean after 2 shampoos and there was no "squeaking".  I was impressed with the definition of my sisters's curl. The was minimal frizz and the shine was just grand. The first ingredient in this shampoo is marshmallow root (althaea officinalis) which is very well known for it's soothing and healing properties. This along with sweet almond oil (emollient) and olive leaf extract( astringent) ensured that my sister's hair was  both clean and softened. These factors were essential to my sister who tends to have a very dry scalp and oily hair.
Pytobaume- is a light cream that detangles wonderfully and does not leave a heavy film. It has an ingredient in it that will ensure "no static"  I used about a size of a quarter on her entire head. I do hope that they will reformulate and get the parabens out of this great product. Oh, I can't forget the mallow extract, which is an emollient that also protects.
Phyto7-  my favorite product of the collection.  I used just a tad bit bigger than pea size of the product before I blow dried the hair.  I have to say, as you can see from the pictures below, the shine on the hair was consistent from the start.  The hydrating cream just sealed the deal.  The product gave a good slip without leaving a film.  The hair was soft  and again the sheen was amazing. The power pack formulation of plant extracts ensure that the hair is softened, hydrated, and protected.

 These products will definitely be a staple in my sister's hair regimen.  I myself, have started using the Phyto7 and I picked up a bottle of the PhytoCurl Shampoo. I will be giving it a try very soon. As for the mini collection, it's definitely gorgeous approved.  I really adore the packaging also, the resealable case fits right in your hand which makes it easy for packing and travel.  A great product in a small package for an amazing value, $12!!
