Christophe Robin Cleansing Volumizing Paste with Pure Rassoul Clay and Rose Extracts is a product that I had bought together with their Delicate Volumizing Shampoo and Conditioner with Rose Extracts (Read full review of their shampoo and conditioner here!). It is a deep cleansing shampoo with a unique paste-like texture that transforms into a light foam once you’ve worked it into your hair and scalp.

How does the Christophe Robin Cleansing Volumizing Paste with Pure Rassoul Clay and Rose Extracts fare?
As per my incessant scrolling of beauty posts on Instagram, this product was introduced to me when a beauty blogger that I was following (Go check out @hiddenharmonyworld!) proclaimed it to be one of the best volumising product that she had ever used. How could I not be tempted after that glorious proclamation?! This product contains a unique blend of pure rassoul clay—with densifying and re-mineralising benefits, protective rose extracts, and Limnanthes extract—to help preserve and enhance hair colour. It claims to bring immediate volume and thickness to fine hair without weighing it down (sounds exactly like my cup of tea or coffee or liqueur, whichever your poison is!). Hair is left with incredible body at the roots, while feeling full and light.
According to their official website, instructions on how to use this product are detailed as below:
- On wet hair : use a tablespoon worth of product (more or less, depending on the length of your hair) rub into your palms, and apply all over your hair. With a delicate touch, make circular motions until you feel the paste turn to foam, and make sure you lift the roots.
- Add a little water, emulsify, and rinse abundantly. For an intensified effect: let it sit for 2 minutes before you rinse.
- Then, apply the volumizing conditioner with rose extracts to lengths and ends.
I’ve been alternating this product with the Christophe Robin cleansing purifying scrub with sea salt (Full review here!) by using it once a week as a deep cleansing treatment for around 3 months. It has the same deliciously beautiful rose scent as the Delicate Volumizing Shampoo and Conditioner with Rose Extracts. After I worked the product into my hair and rinsed it off, my scalp feels very clean and light. However, my hair does feel slightly dry. Therefore, I would usually accompany it by using copious amounts of either the volumizing conditioner or the regenerating mask with prickly pear seed oil and let it sit for around 2 minutes before rinsing it off. I think that this product really does help to not only control my oily scalp (I suspect that the inclusion of clay in this formula helped in that aspect!), my hair itself has so much more volume! That is indeed a miracle for me given that I’ve very fine hair so I’ll take any amount of volume I can get! My hair is shiny, bouncy and volumious after using this treatment. If you asked me on the main difference between this volumising paste and the cleansing purifying scrub with sea salt, I would say that this product is better for creating volume for the hair itself while the purifying scrub with sea salt is better for people with problematic scalps (such as dandruff, or inflamed oily itchy scalps). They are both excellent products in my opinion. Try it and let me know how it goes!
