My haircolor did not turn out the way I wanted. How can I correct?
We have a few solutions for you below if your hair is in healthy condition.

Problem Solution
 The color turned out too dark. If you don’t want to wait for the color to fade naturally, try a clarifying shampoo the day after you color. It will help some of the color wash out, leaving you with a slight lighter tone.
If you want to remove your dark color in a quicker way, we recommend you see a professional hairstylist.
The color turned out too light. Choose your Phytocolor one shade darker and re-color. Follow manufactures directions. Check your color every 5 minutes and rinse when you think the color is dark enough. Make sure to do your color preview test and allergy test.


Will permanent haircolor lighten another permanent haircolor?
Do not use a lighter hair color product in an attempt to correct your darker hair color results. Hair color products cannot lift or lighten a previously dyed hair color. Using more color will only make the hair darker.


My hair is too light, can I try a darker shade?
We recommend going darker gradually. Stay within two shade levels of your
natural hair color and gradually go darker.


Can you help me find an equivalent shade to my current brand?
Please visit us.phyto.com and take a close look at the digital swatches provided.


My hair is mostly gray. What should I use?
All Phytocolor shades are 100% gray coverage. If you have resistant gray, let the haircolor process an additional 15 minutes following manufacturer instructions.


What will my color result be?
We recommend a color strand test prior to coloring. Choose just a strand of your
hair that no one will see. Follow the instructions inside the box on completing a
color strand test and allergy test.

Can I perm and color my hair the same day?
Wait no less 14 days to apply the color after your hair has been permed. Before
coloring, follow the instructions for a color strand and allergy test.


Can haircolor be used on bleached or highlighted hair?
We suggest that you wait at least 14 days between applications. Follow the
instructions for the color strand test and allergy test.


Do I need to shampoo before I color?
Do not shampoo immediately before coloring hair.


Can haircolor be applied to wet or dry hair?
Haircolor should be applied to dry hair.


When can I shampoo after coloring?
Per manufacturer instructions, emulsify the color after process time into a lather,
rinse, and condition using the provided mask. Wait 24 hours after color service
to shampoo with your routine products.

Can I mix shades?
We do not recommend mixing shades. Phytocolor has been specially formulated
to provide the best match to what is shown on the box.


When should I start timing my hair color application?
Once the application is complete.


Can I use my own conditioner instead of the conditioner in the hair color box?
We recommend the use of the Phyto mask provided as it has been specifically
tested for use with Phyto color to help create softness and shine.


Can I use this product while pregnant and/or breastfeeding?
We recommend that you consult your physician.


Can I swim after I color my hair?
We recommend waiting 24 hours after color your hair.


Can I mix and store unused Phytocolor to use at a later time?
No. Once activated, the oxidation process has short duration of time before the product is no longer viable.



What are the type of relaxers do you offer?

We offer 2 targeted formulas based on the degree of straightening, INDEX 1, and INDEX 2. INDEX 1 is for delicate, fine and color-treated hair types who want texturized to loosen curls and waves or a sleek, straight look. INDEX 2 is for normal, resistant, and coarse hair types who want a sleek, straight look.


How does Phytorelaxer differ from other relaxers?

Phytorelaxer is effective yet different because it permanently relaxes hair without harsh chemicals or irritation usually associated with chemical relaxers. It does not contain any lithium, calcium, sodium hydroxides or thio. Thio refers to the chemical compound “ammonium thioglycolate.”


What are the active ingredients in the straightening cream?

The active ingredient in the straightening cream is a complex of egg and soy extracts. These ingredients are from 100% botanical origin and are hypoallergenic.


What is the pH of Phytorelaxer?

The pH ranges from 9.5-12.5.


Can I use Phytorelaxer at home or should I go to a salon?

We recommend having a professional stylist consultation prior to the Phytorelaxer application. The stylist can evaluate the condition of your hair and suggest the appropriate index and timing for your hair texture. However, the Phytorelaxer kit is designed to also be used at home.


How soon can I wash my hair after the Phytorelaxer application?

Wait at least 72 hours. Use Curl Hydration Shampoo and Mask to soothe the scalp and intensely hydrate and nourish the hair.


How often do I need to use Phytorelaxer?

Phytorelaxer may be used every 6 to 8 weeks, depending on the new growth, texture, or condition of your hair. A sufficient amount of new growth must be present in order to properly relax the hair without touching the scalp or overlapping on previously relaxed hair.


Is Phytorelaxer compatible with all relaxers?

Yes. Phytorelaxer is compatible with all relaxers except those that are thio-based.
