My hair problems started few months post-pregnancy where my hair fell out in bunches! And worst still, my hair was thin to begin with, with the post-pregnancy hair loss and annual dyeing of my hair it has weaken my hair significantly and if you looked really carefully, there is this mini bald patch on the crown of my head!!

With an invitation to a PHYTO event, I took the chance to get a comprehensive hair analysis done.
According to the specialist, I was indeed an URGENT case where I needed to treat my thinning hair immediately! Each hair shaft usually contains 2 or 3 hairs, but in my case, some of them only has 1 hair left! And there are shafts that are clogged even though I shampoo twice everyday due to the hot weather.
The specialist then went on to personalised the following products to treat my thinning problems.
Botanical Scalp Treatment
This is my personal favourite from the Phyto range that was recommended!
For a while now, I have been suffering from dry and itchy scalp. There are occasions when I couldn’t even sleep due to the itchiness of my scalp! How bad is that?!
Does any of you also have a problem with pimples that grow in your scalp?
PHYTO Phytopolléine is recommended for those suffering from an unbalanced scalp like me.
- Purifies and balances scalp
- Stimulates microcirculation
- Energizes and fortifies hair
- Creates the optimal environment for healthy hair growth
This pre-shampoo treatment is a potent blend of essential oils that balances the scalp and deters dandruff. It aims to purify and stimulate the scalp with the natural extracts or rosemary, sage, cypress, eucalyptus, and lemon.
After a long day of work and I have 20 minutes to spare just before hitting the bath, I would apply the product section by section onto dry scalp using the applicator tip which I find, releases just the right amount of product. By massaging it into my scalp in a circular motion, I find the essential oil blend, calms and soothes my nerves as well.
Revitalising Serum- Thinning Hair
This advanced formula is great for people with thinning hair issues as it supports the scalp’s natural microcirculation to create an optimal environment for new hair growth. Phytocyane Revitalizing Treatment Serum supports keratin production for fuller, thicker and more lustrous hair.
- Helps jump start healthy new growth
- Encourages keratin productoin for thicker, stronger hair
- Restructures the hair fiber to improve its luster
- Delays the appearance of gray hair
Your usage will depend on how intensive you need the treatment to be.
As of all ampoules, you would need to break off the glass tip. But the great thing about this is that PHYTO has carefully thought it through and provided an attachable plastic nozzle that you can use over the broken glass area as an applicator. No more worries about the possibility of cutting yourself!
After trying intensively for a month, I have seen lesser hair falls, and I find that my hair feels thicker and more voluminous than before. Really happy with the results!
Hair and Nails Dietary Supplement
Whether it is environmental stressors or chemical processing (eg. dyeing of hair, bleaching, curling), these does damage to the protein structure in your hair, which can cause breakage and hair loss!
PHYTO Photophanère Hair and Nails Dietary Supplement is designed to support healthy and strong hair and nails. If you have weak, thinning and damaged hair and nails, this will be your life saver! It consists of essential fatty acids and an antioxidant blend .
- Promotes healthy hair growth
- Strengthen nails
- Illuminates skin
- Fortifies and Lengthens lashes
The amount of hair loss significantly reduced after being introduced to Photophanère and using it synergistically with the other 2 products. How do I quantify for the hair loss you may ask? By looking at my floor trap!
However, I had some tummy sensitivity when I took the supplement on an empty stomach. Hence, I would suggest taking it with a meal instead for tummy protection and to enhance its delivery and absorption into the body, preferably a meal with some fats (eg milk) especially when this supplement contains essential fatty acids.
As I was browsing through the store, I was brought to the attention that there is a latest innovation by PHYTO. It reverse-engineers grey hair and bring back colour. What sorcery is this!!!
Counting on good genes (for now!), I am unable to provide a fair and honest opinion of this product.
Hence, I got my husband who just saw his first strand of white hair to be my test subject. He panicked when he saw that very strand dangling on the crown of his head.
Imagine my pride when I could whip out this revolutionary product!
It is capable of repigmenting hair from the roots through a dual action:
- A biomimetic of Alpha MSH, peptide RE30 is a patented active ingredient that boosts Melanin production at the bulb and helps stimulate the natural pigmentation of hair during regrowth.
- Purple tulip extract acts on Keratin-associated proteins to strengthen hair from the roots.
It rapidly repigment the root and the hair is refortified and left suppler.
It has been a month since that little panic and I haven’t seen an additional strand yet! Cross –fingers!
