In other “not wanting to share” news, Phylia de M.’s haircare line (beloved by Jessica Alba and Kylie Minogue, we’ll have you know, and whose Connect we recommended to you last Sunday Spa Day) is too good to let leave your shower. Relying mainly on a blend of aloe and tannic and fulvic acids (supplemented with organically grown coconut, honey, chamomile, lavender, orange blossom, rosemary, wheat, seaweed, sugarcane, and a whole mess of delicious things that would make one very weird salad), the shampoo and conditioner are hell-bent on renewing the natural keratin in your hair. (This is important.) Also, they're pretty much the best thing we’ve used on our manes in recent memory.
Phylia’s philosophy is based around viewing your hair as a plant 2-3 (with parallels drawn between the soil-bed/scalp, stem/hair follicle, and so on) and nurturing the scalp and hair much like you would something growing in your garden (i.e., clearing away damaging toxins and encouraging healthy growth). “Commitment will reward you with results,” explains the accompanying booklet, and friends, they aren’t lying. The shampoo, an ambrosia-like honey-colored concoction called Clean, is imbued with an neroli/orange blossom scent, and is good for your nails and eyebrows, too. Think about how much time you spend massaging shampoo into your hair—now you can be helping your mitts at the same time! Combined with Condition, a nutrient-rich, creamy conditioner full of chamomile that's light enough to be a leave-in but perfect as a rinse-out, our hair was left feeling soft, looking shiny, and, call us crazy, seeming a bit more more plentiful. (Not crazy! According to Phylia, their products promote hair density.) If the New Year is supposed to be about a “new you,” why not start from the top?
