You must be thinking dehydrated body and dehydrated skin make sense but what is dehydrated hair and if there is something like ‘dehydrated hair’, and if you have dehydrated hair. I know I had the same concerns in my mind when I heard about this term. We come across different terms for hair like dry, oily, dull in our daily routine but I was curious to know what is dehydrated hair, Okay here I start. Christophe Robin hydrating range, which I am going to talk about in this post, is based on the concerns and needs of his clients, I do consider myself his client too (not a direct one yet but I still am and love all the products I have use from his brand, like they were created based on my hairs needs).
If your hair is dull and losing its elasticity and bounce, If your hair is prone to static electricity, If your hair inflates at the slightest sign of humidity, These are all the signs of Dehydrated Hair. I do get “Yes” for all the three ‘If’s‘ I mentioned above and I had never had an idea that my hair could be dehydrated, I would have thought about them as a bad hair day or something I missed while styling them. But the real reason might be the wind, cold, weather, the sun, friction from rubbing against helmet or scarves. So we come to the conclusion that moisturizing hair is as important as moisturizing skin every day.
Christophe Robin products are developed by combining natural ingredients to develop effective formulas and for this new Hydrating range, the main ingredient is Aloe Vera. This range is suitable for men and women. I remember my mom used to have an Aloe Vera plant grown in her garden and she would get a little pulp from it every day and apply it on her face and then to mine, it used to soothe the skin, hydrate and brighten it. Whenever I go to visit her, She still loves to do that and I can see her skin is so beautiful. And yes she eats it too sometimes which is far better than buying Aloe Vera juice from the stores. Okay, now putting my stories aside, let me talk about these products which have Aloe Vera and are for hair. I was sent these products as part of press package for testing and review purposes. The packaging of the products is in white sturdy bottles and dispenser and pump for both work very well.
Aloe Vera plant has very thick leathery leaves which keep the vital resources inside the leave intact. Aloe Vera gel is a combination of water and over 75 active molecules, 20 minerals, 18 amino acids, 12 vitamins, and nutrients. Yes, I do understand all these as My mom is a Chemistry Professor and I was a good student, so this was an obvious choice for my mom and I trust her choice of products till now. That means, these products were destined to be loved by me, but wait, let me start with them again, I won’t divert the topic now.
Christophe Robin Hydrating Shampoo with Aloe Vera (CAD $43/250ml) is suitable for all types of hair and is gentle enough for frequent use. It is enriched with Aloe Vera, a rich blend of water, vitamins, and nutrients which provide soothing and hydration. I take a small amount of the shampoo and distribute it through wet hair, lather and then rinse thoroughly. The scent is so invigorating and fresh. Then I follow with the Hydrating Leave-in Mist with Aloe Vera. I spray it few times on the damp hair and either air dry or blow dry the hair.
Christophe Robin Hydrating leave-in mist with Aloe Vera (CAD $48/150ml) is a leave-in mist suitable for all hair types. It provides hydration as well as helps detangling of the hair. It can be use don hair lengths as well as on the scalp. It is formulated with pure aloe vera gel and an active plant ingredient which soothes and restores the scalp’s comfort. It is very light in texture with the same invigorating and freshening scent as the hydrating shampoo. It can be used as a mid day pick me up for a quick spritz and refresh the hair or if hair is feeling dry and dull. I do feel my hair pleasantly soft and shiny while my scalp is calm and healthier.
Both these products are must-try if you have any one of the three ‘If’s‘ I highlighted in bold letters in the first half of this post. Christophe Robin Hydrating Shampoo with Aloe Vera and Christophe Robin Hydrating leave-in mist with Aloe Vera are available at Sephora Canada.
