Weekly Must-Have: Connect by Phylia de M.
While genetics play a significant role in our mane DNA, science can pick up where nature left off. That means starting at the root of the problem: the scalp. “By caring for the scalp, we optimize the underlying nerve circuit, closely connected to our face, to draw more keratin to the area, actually keeping our face younger(!) and relieving our kidneys and liver of excess toxins that are allowed out of our bodies through our growing hair,” says Phylia de M. co-owner, Kazu Namise. Pyhlia de M. is the brainchild of Kidada Jones (daughter of music legend, Quincy) and Kazu. The newly launched, 3-product hair care line is based on the research of Dr. Miyayama, Kazu’s godfather, a Japanese oncologist with an affinity for herbal and natural remedies. Hypothesizing that hair damage is an effect of a lack of keratin, Dr. Miyayama concocted a recipe of aloe, tannic and fulvic acids to remedy the problem. That recipe has become the proprietary blend in all Phylia products. Connect, the leave-in scalp and hair treatment spray, renews keratin function giving you a healthier, happier scalp (and face!).
I’m an avid fan of any hair product that comes with a spray applicator (love) and an even bigger advocate of a product that treats the actual problem instead of sticking a bandaid on the issue – be it split ends, dry follicles or thinning hair. Connect not only treats the problem of a loss of keratin, it works to solve it. And it does all of this with a spray (bonus).
A word (or several..) from the company:
Connect is our 100% organic keratin renewal treatment that transforms your hair to its very best by detoxifying, repairing, and renewing cell life and keratin function in your follicles, scalp and hair. We make CONNECT using our highly concentrated core proprietary blend of pure humic-free fulvic acid, aloe, and tannic acids to restore your body’s inherent ability to grow healthy hair and stop excess shedding and thinning.
While Phylia de M. suggests using all 3 products in conjunction with one another – Cleanse, Condition and Connect – if you have to choose only one, you can’t go wrong with Connect. It’s the product that really sets the brand apart from the plethora of hair care lines on the market.
