This Oily Hair Conditioner Is Meant To Be Used On Your Roots

I know what you’re thinking. Why would you EVER use a conditioner on your roots, especially if you have an oily hair type? That’s a very valid question.

Usually, this would be a cardinal sin for anyone with oily roots, but in this case, applying Christophe Robin’s Detangling Gelee to the roots is actually encouraged. Essentially, it acts as the second step in your “detox” ritual.

Tell Me More:

Designed to be used after the best-selling Purifying Cleansing Scrub as your “conditioner”, this detangling gel with sea minerals hydrates and revitalises the hair and scalp – and yes, you heard me right, you use it on your roots.

– The Detangling Gelee conditions the hair without weighing it down

– The unique concentrated formula adds softness & much-needed hydration

– It’s ideal for oily or sensitive scalps with dry or damaged ends

– Made from natural active ingredients, it’s also cruelty-free

– It has a super light gel texture (as opposed to thick, creamy conditioners)

– Gentle enough to use every day with the scrub or Purifying Shampoo

What’s In It?

Scalp health is fundamental in maintaining the overall health of your hair – an unhealthy scalp can lead to concerns like dandruff, thinning and dullness. So which ingredients has Christophe Robin added to his Detangling Gelee to look after the scalp?

Zinc: plays an important role in hair tissue growth and repair. It also helps regulate the oil glands around our hair follicles

Potassium: removes excess sodium from our system which stimulates hair growth

Magnesium: helps to unblock hair follicles while nourishing the scalp 

Iron: helps red blood cells carry oxygen to our cells and our scalps

How To Use:

As I mentioned, the Christophe Robin Detangling Gelee pairs best with either the Purifying Cleansing Scrub or Purifying Shampoo for oilier hair types (I recommend alternating between the two for best results).

If you have super dry, damaged or chemically-afflicted ends, I’d recommend adding some more hydration to this detoxifying routine with the Christophe Robin’s Daily Hair Cream or Hydrating Leave in Mist with Aloe Vera after you’ve washed your hair.
