Most hair styling products contain silicones and alcohol which are used to create instant shine and decrease drying time. When used frequently, these ingredients can damage the hair fiber, affecting the hair’s natural protective barrier. As a result, they make hair texture dry, brittle, and frizzy with visible hair damage and split ends. Moreover, they leave product build-up in the hair and scalp, leading to irritation, dandruff, allergy or itchiness. They also clog hair follicles and weaken roots which leads to hair loss.
Aware of this essential need for cleaner and more nurturing styling products for both the hair and scalp, world-renowned colorist Christophe Robin has developed two new natural-origin hair styling products that create a beautiful hairstyle without causing irritation to the scalp or dry-out lengths.
99% NATURAL-ORIGIN INGREDIENTS
CARE x STYLE: Christophe Robin’s new styling formulas are composed of 99% natural-origin ingredients and contain no fragrance. The deeply nourishing leave-in textures are also formulated without silicones to respect the scalp and without alcohol to prevent dryness, color fading or oxidizing and damage to the hair fiber. They tackle the nutrition and styling needs of frizzy hair, as well as naturally or permed curly hair.
ANTI-FRIZZ RESCUE MILK WITH SHEA BUTTER
Hair prone to frizz tends to be damaged. It is porous, vulnerable and dull. No Frizz Care x Style (CHF 36, 150ml) is a non-sticky and light anti-frizz rescue milk that combats frizz for up to 48 hours and gives your hair a non-greasy finish. At the heart of the formula, shea butter, a generous butter from West African plains, is known to fortify and soften hair. Full of fatty-acids, it intensely nourishes the lengths for a sealed, strong hair fiber. It also offers an anti-inflammatory action to the scalp and reduces irritations without clogging hair’s follicles allowing the scalp to breathe.
Apply the milk evenly onto towel-dried hair from root to tip, including baby hair around the hairline. Blow-dry or let air-dry naturally.
LUSCIOUS CURL CREAM WITH FLAXSEED OIL
Curly hair is very fragile as it is naturally dry. When hair is curly, the sebaceous glands, responsible for the production of sebum, are smaller. Therefore, less nutrition is produced. Due to the hair’s spiral shape, the sebum is not able to fully reach the lengths and ends, hence hair cuticles stay open and lack nutrition. In consequence, hair is porous, vulnerable, dry and curls are unstructured, hard to manage and frizzy.
Curls Care x Style (CHF 34, 150ml) is a curl enhancer that leaves curls nurtured and sumptuous. It contains flaxseed oil, a strong and powerful plant-origin ingredient, enriched in fatty acids and omegas. It boosts hair’s nutrition and mimics the sebum’s role by nourishing and maintaining hair health to restore elasticity and suppleness to the curls. It also contains aloe vera extract, a naturally hydrating ingredient rich in water and vitamins to sooth the scalp by creating a hydrating barrier around the hair cuticle.
Apply the cream evenly to towel-dried hair from root to tip, concentrating on the thickest curls. Blow-dry hair using a diffuser or let hair air-dry naturally. As a touch-up to refresh your curls, apply the cream in smaller quantity to dry hair for even bouncier curls. This styling product empowers all curl types, even the curliest hair.
