Our tester tried the Deep Restructuring Shampoo and Balm on return from holiday:
Hair Type – Natural mixed race hair (Afro and Indian)
To say my hair was fried was putting it lightly! I’d had a lovely week in the sun and had washed my hair with the free shampoo at the hotel (always a mistake), put in some Aveda Be Curly curl enhancer (very good by the way) and left my hair like that for a week. The sun shone, the rain fell and the wind blew on my tired locks but I didn’t care as I was on holiday and therefore not worrying about my hair.
Touching down in London, I knew I’d have to do something about the matting curls on my head and was wondering which intensive treatment would be able to sort my mop top out. I opted for Phyto Specifc Deep Restructuring Shampoo and Deep Restructuring Balm.
I followed the instructions to the letter:
Deep Restructuring Shampoo
apply on wet hair, massage gently
rinse and leave to foam for a few minutes
Deep Restructuring Balm
spread liberally throughout hair using a wide tooth comb
leave for 15 minutes or more depending on porosity of hair (I left it for an hour underneath a shower cap. Attractive!)
My hair was amazingly soft, sweet smelling and all around lovely. The wide tooth comb simply glided through my hair and it felt clean and in very good condition. I heartily recommend it if you’ve been a little unkind to your hair and award it 5 out of 5. It does exactly what it says on the tin!
