Kérastase Nutritive 8hr Magic Night Serum - French Girl Hair Products That Are Salon QualityKérastase Nutritive 8hr Magic Night Serum - French Girl Hair Products That Are Salon Quality

When I think of French Girl hair, an effortless, laid back hair care routine using very few products comes to mind.

However, the tousled, undone look I’ve come to envision tends to take more than a few moments (and products) to achieve for my fine, flat hair.

French hair care tends to take the approach of bringing out the best of your natural hair type and texture, with a low-no shampoo ethos, which helps the hair and scalp balance itself more naturally. 

That doesn’t mean to say these French hair care products and hair treatments aren’t also extremely effective at helping your hair achieve things you thought it could not (take a look at this voluminous French Girl Technique). 

So, instead of keeping these French hair care secrets to ourselves, we’ve put together a list of some of the very best french hair care products for fine hair, curly hair, dry hair and more. 

1. This overnight serum is a bona fide staff favourite - Kérastase Nutritive 8hr Magic Night Serum 90ml

Why it's so good: The Kérastase Nutritive 8hr Magic Night Serum 90ml is just one of those products that everyone in our office raves about, and for good reason. This moisturising overnight treatment uses a blend of vitamins to restore, soften and smooth hair. It won’t weigh down finer hair types, helps to make thick hair manageable and improves the definition of curls. You can apply a single pump to damp or dry hair before bedtime to experience soft and luxurious results. No need to rinse. 


2. Bring major volume to fine, flat hair - Christophe Robin Cleansing Volumising Paste

Why it's so good: The Christophe Robin Cleansing Volumising Paste takes the no-poo ethos to a whole new level, adding a gorgeous amount of volume and texture with each use. This gentle cleansing paste helps to exfoliate the scalp, diminishing oil and build up for a nourishing and thorough cleanse. While creating a powerful amount of volume, this formula is still delicate enough for brittle hair and sensitive scalps. Use just once a week, applying a small amount to your palms before emulsifying and massaging it in circular motions to your roots. Follow up with a rinse and dry to experience the best of French Girl hair. 


3. Try this French Pharmacy favourite - Klorane Dry Shampoo with Oat Milk Tinted

Why it's so good: When it comes to refreshing super oily, day-3 hair, it’s best to get straight to the point with a dry shampoo that really works. We recommend this cult-classic French Pharmacy favourite, the Klorane Dry Shampoo with Oat Milk Tinted. This gentle formula effectively refreshes dirty hair, removes oil and odors, without disturbing sensitive scalps. It’s suitable to all hair types, and relies on natural, organically harvested ingredients like corn and rice starches, so you won't experience any harsh or stripping effects. Simply spray this product directly into your hair and leave for 2 minutes before shaking or brushing it out. C’est magnifique! 


4. A very bougie boar bristle brush - Mason Pearson Pocket Pure Boar Brush B4

Why it's so good: More than a luxury gift, the Mason Pearson Pocket Pure Boar Brush B4 is actually a unique brush with pretty extraordinary benefits. Developed for fine and thin hair, the pure bristles on this brush smooths hair without jagging and prevents jagging. Boar bristles help to distribute your hair’s natural oils evenly, providing an all round moisturising effect. Hair is left softened, and frizz free. It’s also a particularly good brush for adding volume while blow drying.


5. One of our fave French curly hair products - Kérastase Discipline Oleo-Curl Creme

Why it's so good: When it comes to finding hair products that are made to compliment specific hair types and textures, we turn to Kérastase. The Kérastase Discipline Oleo-Curl Creme is no exception, offering a curl defining solution for those with ultra-frizzy locks. This leave-in treatment conditions thick and unruly hair, leaving you with nice, soft curls, without the crunch. Apply to damp hair, spreading downwards on the lengths, using your fingers to loosen your curls. Leave this weightless curl cream on overnight for (very) beautiful curls. 


6. Possibly the most hydrating hair treatment ever - Christophe Robin Regenerating Mask

Why it's so good: Hair masks and treatments are kind of Christophe Robin’s thing. As someone who uses at least two on rotation at all times, I can completely vouch for their effectiveness and also say that they really are something else. The Christophe Robin Regenerating Mask is a uniquely hydrating and restorative mask designed for damaged hair. Potent ingredients like Prickly Pear Oil and Inula Flower help to regenerate and fortify the hair. Apply throughout your hair after shampooing, massaging the product from scalp to ends. Gently rinse once the product has been properly distributed. 


7. An ultra refreshing shampoo experience - Klorane Shampoo with Aquatic Mint

Why it's so good: The Klorane Shampoo with Aquatic Mint is a vegan formula that provides a deep-cleansing detox. Ideal for oily hair types, this refreshing shampoo diminishes buildup and debris from the scalp. It’s SLS/SLES free formula means that it is neither harsh nor stripping. Instead, organic mint and plant oils leave hair soft and shiny. Apply a small amount to the scalp and lather. Leave for a moment for a cooling sensation, and then rinse.
