Parisian celebrity hair colourist, Christophe Robin, recently graced us with his presence on Australian shores, and our CEO Kate Morris was lucky enough to indulge in a hair treatment by the French hair specialist.
So what did Kate learn from chatting to the man behind the successful hair care range?
“I’d say the hero product of my treatment was probably the Christophe Robin Moisturising Hair Oil with Lavender.
Just to give you an idea of how effective it is – I didn’t even require a conditioner after using this as the first step (which is something I’d never be able to leave out of my hair washing routine normally).
Christophe noted my hair was very dehydrated due to highlights, and recommended that I should be doing a treatment with the Christophe Robin Moisturising Hair Oil with Lavender once a week, leaving it in all day if possible and then using the Christophe Robin Cleansing Mask with Lemon to wash it out.
A tip I learnt was to make sure you rinse your hair really really well – like for twice as long as you normally would.
Christophe told me most people don’t rinse properly and that’s why their hair gets greasy again in a day or two.
In my opinion, the most interesting thing about Christophe Robin’s range is that it’s not geared towards instant cosmetic results. His range is more like skincare for the hair, not makeup (if that makes sense?).
The ideal is achieving a healthy pH balance and a healthy scalp – rather than covering it up with silicones and other ingredients. His focus is to really make the hair healthy, instead of coating it with styling products."
