Summer is here, ready or not. Time to think about the beach, poolparties, barbeques, and other fun outdoor activities. Amazingly enough, while we have learned to put the SPF 30 on our shoulders,make sure our foundation has an SPF 20, many of us still forget
about our hair. Until it's too late. That cute little sunhat you bought, will you be wearing it because you want to, or because
you're hiding a pile of straw? Luckily there is the Phyto Plage line
from Phyto to save us. Phyto, Phyto Plage and PhytoSpecific are
haircare products which have been around working wonders far longer
than you would imagine.
Founded by top French hairstylist Patrick Ales, his vision was to
create hair products which focused on making the hair and scalp
truly healthy; not just quick fixes masking real problems. Phyto
products which contain, "extremely high concentrations of active
botanical extracts with clinically proven results', are often
protected by special packaging, glass or air-tight aluminum which
help to retain the effectiveness of the formulas, and cuts down on
the need for preservatives.
The Phyto Plage line which was started back in 1975, has just
added Hydrating After Sun Mist to the collection. Spray the mist on
clean hair, wet or dry, to bring life back to hair which has seen a
little too much sun. Great for all types of hair, it's oil-free so
fine hair won't go limp and it cuts down on frizzies and imparts a
healthy shine to curls. I like the fresh smell (must be the sugar
cane) and the fact that it doesn't flake or leave a weird residue,
just nice soft hair.
Also featured here from the collection, Protective Sun Veil.
Phyto Plage was repackaged last year, and these come in perfect
sizes. Not too small, you will to be able to use it more than once;
and not so big that it takes up your whole bag. The Protective Sun
Veil is great to carry around when you're out at the beach or at a
pool party. We all know there are times when you simply aren't able
to go home and wash and condition your hair; nor can you wear a
sunhat in the evening. Spray on the Protective Veil before you go
out into the sun, after swimming, or even at the end of the day; it
will save all types of hair from the drying effects of chlorine and
the sun. Your hair will look great because it will feel great. To
quote Monsieur Ales,"There is no such thing as bad hair, only
poorly treated hair". So treat yourself and your hair right, protect
The Phyto Plage line also features a Protective Styling Gel and and
After-Sun Repair Mask, use them for beautiful healthy hair the
You can find Phyto products at fine salons and department stores
like Neiman Marcus, Saks 5th Ave., and Bloomingdale's.
