I know what you’re thinking: ‘Girl, another hair care review, really?’ Yes, really. But I promise you that it’s worth reading on, because the shampoo that I am reviewing today is quite exceptional. Let me explain.
The new Phyto Phytokératine Extrême shampoo is a sulfate, silicon and paraben-free shampoo that contains plant-derived keratin, sapote butter, baobab oil and peony extract to repair ultra-damaged locks and give nutrition, suppleness and shine to brittle and dry hair.
The fact that the Phyto Phytokératine Extrême shampoo is free from nasties and uses such a gentle blend of natural ingredients to cleanse, repair and nourish the hair was already enough to capture my attention, but what really made the product stand out for me is the fact that the main ingredient is peony extract. I don’t know about you, but I’d say it’s pretty unusual to have a formula that doesn’t have aqua a.k.a. water as the first ingredient on the ingredient list. And it’s not just peony extract that’s present in large doses. All the other important actives in the formula are high up on the ingredient list as well. Some products on the market contain only a very small percentage of a certain ingredient but are still marketed as if that ingredient is the main active while it’s not. Phyto clearly refuses to use that trick and doesn’t fool their customers, because all the oils, butters and extracts in the Phyto Phytokératine Extrême shampoo that they promise will repair and nourish the hair are present in large amounts and make up a huge chunk of the overall formula. Quite exceptional indeed!
So does that mean that I’m also getting exceptional results from the Phyto Phytokératine Extrême shampoo? Well, using the word exceptional may be stretching it a bit, but I’m definitely impressed. The shampoo is super gentle on my hair and makes my tresses feel soft and healthy. Since I have several different shampoos on rotation it’s hard to say how well the Phyto Phytokératine Extrême shampoo is doing as far as repairing and strengthening goes, but I have faith that all the botanical ingredients in the formula are working their magic and are making my brittle hair healthier and stronger.
The Phyto Phytokératine Extrême shampoo is sold for a suggested retail price of 20.70 CHF.
Have you tried the Phyto Phytokératine Extrême shampoo yet? Have you ever used a shampoo that didn’t have water as its main ingredient?
