Spa Detox Scalp Therapy by Phyto

Another post about scalp health - I know... <em>CRAZY!

</em>But a few more tidbits I learned about scalp health in my second treatment that affect hair health:

  • a healthy follicle has 2-3 hairs growing out of it, whereas an unhealthy follicle 1 (or none)
  • the healthy follicle has a 2-6 year cycle
  • an unhealthy follicle has a 6 month cycle
  • hair regrows 25x in a lifetime, so a healthy scalp could aid in escaping balding, hair-fall and even reverse premature greying
  • putting your hair up or throwing on a ball cap ['m looking at you guys!] when your hair is wet, actually prevents oxygen from circulating, follicles clog resulting in an unhealthy scalp [hm.... which came first the baldness or the ball caps???]
  • silicone - known as a great ingredient to skincare and makeup is not advised for hair products, especially at the scalp as it seals the scalp causing weaker follicles.

Think of this as a scalp facial!

Week 5 || Le Pétronille Skincare Challenge with Luxola

By Andrea Claire · May 28, 2012 · 0 Comments ·

So... un petit peu de retard for this post. Je suis desole. I was in beautiful Paree!

Welcome to week 5/6 of my Le Pétronille Skincare Challenge sponsored by Luxola.

You may recall that last week I jetted off to Paris and knowing that I was going to be surrounded by chic French women I toted along my Le Pétronille anti-aging Elixir.

Combat fine lines, wrinkles and aging skin with this booster which combines 10% of Argireline® and 1% Eyeliss® to help fight and reduce wrinkles for visibly younger and firmer skin. Ideal for those who want to smooth and plump their skin.

"The 10% Argireline® formulation is the optimum concentration to achieve the best result in reducing wrinkles and fine lines. Argireline® is proven to reduce the depth of wrinkles and fights the formation of future lines. Eyeliss® decongests and soothes the eye contour while reducing under eye bags. Contains no parabens, no alcohol, no perfume, no artificial colouring. Never tested on animals." Luxola.

My genuine feedback: You know when you read a claim about a product and think 'Yeah right!' ... well, I am sure that my skin has plumped. My marionette lines [sigh] aka smile lines seem less visible. My favourite combo for me is the Le Pétronille Antioxydant Elixir for the day and the Anti-aging Elixir for night. This will be my combo for my last week of my challenge.

**I was given a Sonic Cleanse from SkinStreet so watch for my review - but I can give you a sneak peek into my thoughts: I've been using this for the past couple of weeks - truly this tool changes the way you cleanse, exfoliate and hydrate your skin; and here I had thought I mastered hygiene.
