The Christophe Robin Clarifying Shampoo is one to note for the summer – a shampoo that progressively brightens and lightens the hair. If you have blonde hair this is going to make a quite a difference (as far as a shampoo ever can) in evening up tones, brightening highlights and knocking away the duller strands of colour.
You could, in fact, use this on any colour hair providing you want a brighter and more even version. The Christophe Robin range is all about colour keeping and undoing damage – the man himself is a colourist and he has very much stuck to his area of expertise with his range. It’s undeniably a lot of money for a shampoo (Clarifying is £25 HERE , Wheatgerm is £28 HERE), so in the way that skin care or make up is the ‘thing’ for some, hair needs to be your thing!
I’ve been testing the Wheat Germ Shampoo (my daughter is on the Clarifying) – for someone who is completely a slave to silicones when it comes to hair care, it’s genuinely a challenge to go without. I did notice a difference – I can’t say otherwise – in that my hair was more inclined to frizz without any silicones. However, there is nothing to stop me adding a silicone serum afterwards and still enjoy the benefits of that. It feels like a highly cleansing shampoo – if you ever wash your hair and it just doesn’t feel quite clean even though you have a huge ball of foam on your head, it’s probably due to residue build up from previous washes. Once you’ve stripped those away, your hair will behave quite differently. Masks are also key in the range – as a colourist, Christophe always treats hair prior to colouring because condition is all for colour to look as good as possible.
I think hair care is a lot like skin care – find the one that suits your needs and it’s a game changer, but one thing does not suit all. All of Christophe Robin products are paraben, silicon, SLES and oxidant free. There is a decent selection at SpaceNK HERE.
