Christophe Robin can be said to be my favourite haircare brand for 2017. In Nov 17, I bought their Delicate Volumizing Shampoo and Conditioner, together with the Cleansing Volumizing Paste, as I was seeking to change my haircare products to be both SLS-free and silicone-free. I read some good reviews on these products so I bought a set to try it out for myself.
As usual, ingredients are below for your reference:

How does the Christophe Robin Delicate Volumizing Shampoo fare?
The Christophe Robin Delicate Volumizing Shampoo claims to protect colour, nourish the hair fibre and volumise body. It has a gelified formula that’s enriched with rose oils extract and baobab leaves to cleanse the hair and lock the acid pH balance into the fibres, limiting the pigments escaping so colour remains brilliant and fresh.
Firstly, I must mention about the scent of this shampoo! It has a very fresh real rose scent that is just so beautiful! No grandma rose scent here, no sire! It lathers very well and also washes away without much effort. However, I find that you need to use this shampoo in conjunction with a more hydrating/ moisturising conditioner because it will leave your hair slightly drier. Nonetheless, this property also means that whenever I use this shampoo, my oily scalp and hair is very much controlled. Usually my hair and scalp will feel super oily at the end of a long work day but ever since I’ve started using this shampoo and conditioner, my hair and scalp do not feel oily until the next morning.
How does the Christophe Robin Delicate Volumizing Conditioner fare?
The Christophe Robin Delicate Volumizing Conditioner claims that it is so gentle on the scalp and hair that it doesn’t weigh the hair down, keeping it fresh and soft. Again, this conditioner has the same beautiful rose scent as the shampoo. As it’s slightly more moisturising, I find that it is an excellent complement to the slightly drying effects of the shampoo. I do not find that it leaves any residue on my hair after I wash it off. It only leaves my hair feeling nourished and smooth.
Using both the shampoo and the conditioner has helped to control my oily hair and scalp. My normally fine hair also looks voluminous with more body. The only con of these products is their price. That’s why I’m alternating these products with another set of SLS-free and silicone-free shampoo and conditioner and it has been working well for me thus far.
Where can you find it?
I bought the products from LookFantastic SG Online.
