Questions & Answers for Phyto Subtil Elixir Intense Nutrition Shine Oil

Question
After the post-oil shampoo do you condition your hair with regular conditioner?
I know that this is supposed to be applied to dry hair, left on for 10 minutes, and then one is supposed to rinse it out and shampoo their hair. Normally, after I shampoo I use conditioner. Should I use it after shampooing this oil out, or does the oil condition the hair enough such that just a shampoo is enough?

I did condition my hair after washing but I didn't let it soak like I usually do. It may be too heavy on your hair to do both so try it and see.

I have only used it one time but I did not condition my hair after shampooing and it did not have an adverse effect on my hair. Adding conditioner may weight hair down depending on what type of hair you have.

I'm not sure if you have to but I always do. My hair is relatively oily and even after using this, I always follow with a shampoo as well as conditioner. My hair feels like butter afterwards.

As far as I understood the directions, you apply it to dry hair for a few minutes before going into the shower. As far as I can tell it's supposed to be a sort of deep conditioning mask which you follow with a shampoo and whatever else you use. It will leave your hair feeling amazingly soft after washing it out and letting it dry. With that being said, I don't see why it couldn't be used on wet hair assuming you only use a small amount.

Question
Can this be used as a leave-in oil?
I know the directions say to use this pre-shampoo, but I would like to know if anyone has tried using this in hair that has just been washed like one would use a normal hair serum?

I wouldn't use it as a leave in oil or styling product. Your hair definitely looks and feels oily after applying this product.

Is this safe to use on keratin treated hair?
I've read that if you've had a keratin treatment, you should avoid sulfates and protein. Does this have protein?
