Facial skin doesn’t stop at your forehead. Often neglected, the scalp also requires special care and attention, all the more so since it plays a vital role in the hair’s health and beauty.
A pioneer when it comes to scalp concerns, Christophe Robin launched his cleansing purifying scrub with sea salt in 2013. One of a kind, the scalp scrub was an instant success in the industry – receiving numerous awards worldwide - and became equally popular with men and women all over the world, positioning itself as Christophe Robin’s bestselling haircare product.
For a fresh and light start to spring, Christophe Robin has enhanced his iconic detox ritual with a new addition; the detangling gelée with sea minerals. Combined with the cleansing purifying scrub with sea salt, this duo forms the perfect detox treatment: a delicate balance between purifying, strengthening and pampering actions to give your scalp and hair a fresh start.
1-Detoxify with the cleansing purifying scrub with sea salt
"My profession as a hair colorist quickly led me to pay special attention to the comfort of the scalp, which is often mistreated or sensitized by the build-up of chemical products (permanent hair color, dry shampoo, styling products etc.) as well as pollution, diet and even stress." Christophe Robin
The hybrid formula of this innovative shampoo combines two star ingredients to compensate for life’s excesses and soothe even the most sensitive scalps:
A natural exfoliator, it cleanses, removes impurities and restores balance to the scalp. Its grains of various sizes stimulate the blood microcirculation to supply the maximum amount of nutrients to the hair. They dissolve on application for gentle and non-abrasive exfoliation.
A natural moisturizing agent
From the new generation of active ingredients in hair care, its affinity with the scalp ensures deep and lasting hydration even after rinsing. The scalp is instantly soothed and itching is relieved. In just 24 hours, the optimal level of hydration is restored and feelings of irritation are significantly reduced. These measured effects can be felt instantly and last up to 4 days after use.
It is fun and easy to apply, with no leave-in time. Use it as a shampoo by applying a small amount to wet hair. Delicately massage the scalp, concentrating on the nape of the neck. Add a small amount of water, lather, then rinse thoroughly.
Result: A healthy, balanced and soothed scalp that feels comfortable and refreshed. Hair looks shiny and stays clean and bouncy for longer.
"My cleansing purifying scrub with sea salt provides a fresh start for the scalp. To maximize the effects, I have developed my detangling gelée with sea minerals, an essential 2nd step for a complete detox ritual." Christophe Robin
Freed from all impurities, the scalp and hair fiber are then ready for an intensive treatment to finish off the detox ritual
-Strengthen with the detangling gelée with sea minerals
The scalp is fundamental to the hair’s health, and when it’s sensitized it can often cause deficiencies. This can lead to a lack of micronutrients, which are essential for balancing and protecting the hair fiber. The hair loses its energy and becomes weaker and thinner. Lacking vitality, the hair appears dull and lifeless.
At the heart of the detangling gelée with sea minerals’formula, a cocktail of micronutrients: zinc, iron, calcium, magnesium and potassium have been expertly selected to re-mineralize and strengthen the scalp and hair. Combined with a 100% natural active ingredient and powerful emollient, hair is deeply hydrated while shine and vitality are restored.
Inspired by new generation skincare, the product’s fresh gel texture detangles without weighing the hair down, for beautiful flowy and airy lengths.
Quick and easy to apply, after the cleansing purifying scrub with sea salt, distribute throughout the scalp, lengths and ends. Lather then rinse. Ultra-concentrated, the detangling gelée delivers the efficiency of a mask without the leave-in time.
Result: The scalp and hair are strengthened, hydrated and re-mineralized. The hair’s vitality is restored, leaving it bouncy.
As a weekly ritual, this routine gives hair a fresh and invigorating new start.
This duo is ideal
-As a detox ritual to cleanse and restore balance to sensitive or oily scalps.
-As a post-coloring treatment to eliminate chemical residues and soothe tingling and itchiness.
Alternate the scrub and the purifying shampoo with jujube bark extract for frequent use. It works in perfect harmony with the scalp scrub and also acts in a more targeted way to eliminate dandruff.
At the heart of the formula, a brand new, powerfully effective active ingredient of 100% natural-origin: jujube bark extract, a tree whose properties have been recognized for thousands of years.
Combined with a gentle formula and a delicate foam, it ensures great comfort and pleasure during use, while also providing an instant feeling of freshness, beautiful shine and real bounce from root to tip. Of course, it is perfectly adapted for color-treated hair.
Here are a few extra tips for taking care of your scalp
Brush your hair gently
A small gesture but so important for your hair and scalp. Regular brushing is essential for stimulating blood circulation, which is responsible for hair growth as well as oxygenating and removing impurities from the scalp.
Use a small amount of shampoo
People often use too much shampoo. Not always rinsed properly, the residues remain on the scalp and smother it: its condition deteriorates very quickly and starts to itch. All you need is a small amount of shampoo, lather with warm water and apply to the scalp only. The foam will spread through the hair’s lengths for gentle cleansing.
Take the time to properly massage your scalp
Every time you wash your hair, spend a few minutes massaging your entire scalp. Apart from giving you a pleasant and relaxing sensation, this will help to stimulate the blood supply and maximize cleanliness so you can leave more time between washes.
Used in many formulas, silicones settle on the scalp and coat the hair’s lengths for instant shine. However, this chemical compound is not soluble in water and tends to cling to the scalp and hair, smothering them and eventually suffocating the scalp and leaving hair dull and brittle.
Avoid dry shampoo
Or try to limit their use! It is essential to wash them out before bed. Going to sleep with dry shampoo is like sleeping with your makeup on. The skin regenerates at night and absorbs everything on its surface. That is why it is so important to cleanse thoroughly before going to bed.
Maintain a healthy diet that is good for your hair
The liver is connected to the scalp and a healthy diet is also key. Foods that are rich in omega 3, vitamins and minerals will make your hair happy. These include oily fish like salmon and trout, nuts, flaxseeds, Greek-style yogurt and broccoli, which can all help to maintain the body’s overall health as well as that of the scalp and hair.
