Shampoo For Chemically Treated Hair - Phytocitrus


Hair coloring, bleaching and perming treatments achieve their results through the use of alkaline, which causes the scales of the hair shaft to open and potentially become damaged. Over time color treated hair fibers are weakened significantly and the ends turn flaky.

Deprived of external protection, hair becomes highly vulnerable to daily wear and tear. The experts at Phyto understand the problems that chemical treatments can cause for hair.

As a result Phyto designed the Phytocitrus shampoo and related Phytocitrus products to help with problems related to chemical hair treatments.

Phytocitrus is a frequent shine shampoo to prolong & enhance recently colored, highlighted or permed hair. It is infused w/grapefruit extract to eliminate alkalinity & smooth the hair for maximum shine while sweet almond protein leaved hair silky & soft.

Over the years Phytocitrus Shampoo and it's related products have developed a cult-like following. There have even been rumors on the Internet that Jessica Simpson is a fan of the Phytocitrus family having been said to wear the PhytoCitrus Mask on her tresses to bed.

Whether the Jessica Simpson PhytoCitrus Mask rumor is true or not is still to be proven but it is fact that Phytocitrus hair care is a beloved product by many hair consumers around the world.

The Phytocitrus hair care products include:

Phytocitrus Shampoo

Hair coloring, bleaching and perming techniques are used to make hair more beautiful. While they are now more gentle and advanced in their formulation and application methods, they sometimes leave hair dry and lackluster.

Employing the active ingredients of Grapefruit extract, Chamomile and Sweet Almond protein, Phytocitrus Shampoo is a remarkably smooth, tactile shampoo that smells like a citrus grove. Phytocitrus is a gentle, frequent shine shampoo designed to prolong & enhance recently colored, highlighted or permed hair.

Phytocitrus Shampoo must take serious action to reverse damage caused by perm and color processing.

By restoring hair to its natural pH, Phytocitrus Shampoo, preserves the health of the hair and the vitality of the color and curl. The color or perm lasts longer and hair remains clean, soft, and shiny.


Phytocitrus originally was packaged in a glass bottle which contained 6.8 fl oz. Phyto has changed the packaging to an aluminum bottle to prevent easy breakage.

Daily Hair Tip
For a low maintenance style, try to work with your natural hair type rather than against it. For example, if your hair is naturally wavy, select a hairstyle that works easily with the waves.
