This morning, I visited the Phyto Haircare Phyto Universe treatment center in New York City for a hair and scalp consultation—an especially scary prospect when I haven’t shampooed in almost four days! Luckily, the hair expert when easy on me. See the photos of my scalp and hair magnified 200x below:
A few healthy hair pointers I picked up during my consultation:
- Before washing your hair, give yourself a mini scalp massage with a paddle brush to loosen any buildup.
- For maximum shine, use a clarifying shampoo in place of your regular formula once a month.
- To repair and hydrate dry ends like mine, keep a lightweight leave-in cream on hand and lightly smooth over them daily.

It’s been a tad too long since we’ve had a haircut, and our ends are showing it! In between appointments, we treat our overextended strands to Smooth ‘n Shine Therapy Scalp & Breakage Miracle Leave-In Treatment Conditioner: Most days, it’s the only product we leave in our hair. It nourishes and repairs with jojoba oil and wheat protein without feeling heavy or greasy. It’s a bargain at $4—and the faint take-me-away coconut aroma doesn’t hurt, either. What’s your favorite leave-in hair product?
