In February, I had one of those days when everything concertinas up on you and you need to do something in order to swerve your own internal, emotional Chernobyl. Trouble is, you usually do something bloody stupid.
And so I cut my hair off. Grim-faced, black-hearted and in a voice that did not brook argument, I said, ‘Cut. It. Off.’
I’d had long hair all my life and, for the past ten years, had bolstered it with extensions that eventually tugged on the roots, aggravated the follicles and compromised the whole lot. Post-shearing, I was left with fluffy, flyaway tufty stuff. I necked horse-doses of chokingly vast iron tablets that gave me spots and tummy aches. Still wispy. Still weightless. Woe. Then Phylia d M.
This is a new range from LA developed by Quincy Jones’s daughter Kidada and her partner Kazu Namise, whose Japanese oncologist godfather grows the ingredients at his ranch in Mexico. Sounds deranged but bear with me: there is this stuff called Connect that you can spritz on at any time. The point is that scalp and nerves are like soil and roots: they need nourishment to bring forth blossoms – in this case hair. Am I over-egging my metaphor? Anyway, this stuff is full-on fertiliser.
I have been using it for a month and my hair is sprinting out of my head. Tannic acid repairs depressed follicles, aloe motivates cells to produce keratin and fulvic acid carries said keratin to where it’s needed. And to add joy to bliss, my new hair is better, thicker hair. I am genuinely grateful.
Cream rinse or leave-in conditioner for hair.
CONDITION is a nutrient-rich conditioner, which combines a soothing chamomile scent with a proprietary blend of aloe, tannic, and fulvic acids for a relaxing treatment that results in total hair health. A dual-purpose formula, this moisturizing blend can also be used as a daily leave-in for dry hair.
Directions: Following CLEAN, work a generous amount of CONDITION from mid-hair to ends. Detangle gently and leave treatment in for as long as you like. Rinse thoroughly.
This nourishing formula can be also used as an intensive “night before” treatment to protect your hair from damaging salon chemical processes and to strengthen your hair to its very best.
- spray CONNECT into scalp and all over hair
- immediately apply CONDITION all over hair and ends. Wrap up and leave in overnight.
