Christophe Robin Shade Variation Care – Warm Chestnut
The Christophe Robin line is predominantly formulated for coloured hair – my hair isn’t coloured, but this conditioner is also good for natural hair to bring out and intensify the shade – which is great news for those of us with mousy brown locks that could do with a bit of a boost. This ph balanced hair mask promises to banish yellowed highlights – something I’d kinda thought were an asset – and enrich the shade to a level that is dependent upon the amount of time you leave the mask on for. I loved the smell – sweet and flowery without the inevitable vanilla kicker – and the consistency (containing almond butter and Buriti oil) was easy to work into my hair. Although you can leave it on for up to 30 minutes, I wasn’t convinced about losing all my natural highlights so opted for a safer 15. I’m neither delighted or unhappy with the result – I feel I should have been braver and gone for the full 30 minutes – I can see that my hair is slightly darker, but doesn’t look particularly ‘richer’ for the experience. That said, you cannot knock this mask for conditioning and adding shine – I’ve certainly seen a very evident shine boost and my hair feels beautifully silky. I have to point out the result might be boosted by the keratin treatment I had a couple of weeks ago, but even with that taken into account, I still feel my hair is much the better for it. It is £30 at Lost In Beauty and is also available in ash brown, chic red and baby blonde.
