Hair care and hair health need the most care in the winter months and Christophe Robin is a brand which has been in my favorite’s list when my hair is in need of some extra care and love. I have reviewed Christophe Robin Regenerating Mask with Rare Prickly Pear Oil here which I have already repurchased and on the second jar. Another pair is the newly launched hydrating shampoo and leave-in condition with aloe vera reviewed here. They have been keeping my hair and scalp healthy. With hair fall and medium fine here, there is always that lack of volume which I am trying to create with various products, sometimes which are a hit or a miss. I am using the products from the collection of natural volume treatments with rose extracts to create that Voluminous hair with Christophe Robin.
I will first start with why this line is different from other products aiming at providing volume as well as suitable for colored hair. Volume-enhancing styling products, shampoos, and conditioners are often boosted with alcohol or volumizing ingredients that produce instant results but prevent hair color from lasting. They can even cause the color to fade and pigments to turn very quickly. The expectations for volume-enhancing results are incredibly high, and choices must be made between treating the hair and protecting the color to strike the right balance. The volume and treatment products with the rose extract from Christophe Robin were developed to address the needs of women who want to maintain their fine, colored hair while still enjoying long-lasting color. These products are formulated around 3 rose extracts which help soothe scalp that is sensitized by hair coloring, they repair hair while preserving the look of fresh color, and they provide long-lasting natural volume without drying hair or leaving them dull.
The 3 natural rose extracts include Rosehip seed oil which is extremely rich in essential fatty acids, rosa centifolia water which has slightly astringent, moisturizing, and soothing properties, and Rosa Gallica Glycerin extract which provide repairing and nourishing properties.
Christophe Robin Delicate Volumizing Shampoo with Rose Extracts
Delicate Volumizing Shampoo with Rose Extracts is described as the daily cleansing and protecting care for fine and colored, sensitive hair. The shampoo has a gel formula which glides over the hair and produces a very light lather upon application. It is enriched with rose water, and fortifying baobab leaf extract which helps preserve color, repairs, and smoothes the hair while adding volume. The antioxidant ingredients, rose oil and glycerin extract, combine with an acidic pH of 4.9 to close the hair scales, preventing pigments from leaching out and keeping the color vivid and glossy.
The shampoo has been very gently on my itchy problem scalp and medium wavy dry hair. The hair appears fuller and more toned since I am using this shampoo. The volume does stay on and the styling is easy. The packaging is in sturdy plastic bottles which looks very elegant. The shampoo has a subtle rose fragrance which is very beautiful and stays on for some time.
Christophe Robin Delicate Volumizing Conditioner with Rose Extracts
Delicate Volumizing Conditioner with Rose Extracts is described to give instant detangling and protecting care for fine and colored, sensitive hair. The conditioner works with Delicate Volumizing Shampoo with Rose Extracts to aid in detangling and boost the sculpting, restructuring effect. The formula is enriched with rose water and fortifying baobab leaf extract which helps fine, colored hair feeling light and volumized, with natural hold. Antioxidants in the form of rose oil and glycerin extract, combined with vitamins A and E, help to nourish hair and maintain the color without weighing the hair down.
I have been using this conditioner mainly on the ends and lengths of my hair avoiding roots. My hair is smooth and moisturized after rinsing it off and drying. The hair looks healthy with some extra volume that stays.
Christophe Robin Instant Volumising Mist with Rose Water
Instant Volumising Mist with Rose Water is described as a densifying care for roots and lengths for fine and colored, sensitive hair. It is alcohol-free, non-sticky, and leave in. This hair mist is composed of 96% rose water, offering softening and soothing benefits for the scalp, which is often irritated by color or by other external factors. I apply it first on the scalp by rubbing it gently into it and then spraying over the entire head of hair to provide natural hold right from the roots, for volume and long-lasting style. The natural rose extract in this hair mist prevents color from oxidizing. The hair mist has a subtle fragrance which amazingly uplifts the mood and feels very gentle on the hair and scalp. It can be used with damp or dry hair, roots, and lengths before styling. I have not experienced any weighing down or sticky-ness with this hair mist, I have used this to freshen up my hair between the washes.
Overall, a beautiful line with nice products to give volume to fine hair and also if you are looking for something that is natural, maintains the vivid color of your hair, does not irritates your scalp or fades your color, I would highly recommend you to check these out. Delicate Volumizing Shampoo with Rose Extract, Delicate Volumizing Conditioner with Rose Extracts, and Instant Volumising Mist with Rose Water are available at Sephora Canada, Net-A-Porter, Nordstrom, SpaceNK UK, SpaceNK USA, and Sephora.
