Are you forever lamenting about your hair’s tendency to fall flat or appear limp? Your woes aren’t unfounded — fine hair can be tough to look after and style. Your best bet for tackling fine hair problems is a volumising haircare range that will inject your locks full newfound fullness.
But, not all volumising products are created equal. Some will leave the hair feeling weighed down, whereas others will give your locks unwanted greasiness just a day or two post-washing. So you don’t have to settle for less-than-desirable, we’re spotlighting our all-time favourite volumising haircare range, from Parisian brand Christophe Robin.
Keep on reading to discover why we’re obsessing over the Christophe Robin volumising range, your answer to those frustrating fine hair problems.
Originating in Paris, the Christophe Robin brand is the brainchild of the eponymous ‘hair god’, who has coloured the locks of celebrities, models and regular folk alike. Christophe Robin products feature only the best ingredients, and work to keep hair looking and feeling amazing for longer. With a strong focus on preserving your in-salon colour, it’s no wonder that the majority of the Christophe Robin range has colour protective properties, in addition to strengthening and adding shine and softness.
For those with fine hair, Christophe boasts an entire range designed to add volume and bounce, along with the many other properties all Christophe Robin products share.
Each brand takes a varied approach to fine hair, but they all have a few things in common. The first is that they don’t leave behind the same hydrating residues that your regular hair products will — shampoo and conditioner in particular. Your run of the mill shampoos and conditioners add a film to the hair to keep it looking fresh and feeling cleansed for longer, whereas most volumising products leave this out to avoid weighing down your locks. The result is hair that feels lighter, and as a result, thicker and fuller.
Shampoo and conditioner aren’t the only tools you’ll need in your fine hair arsenal, though. A hair scrub or paste that lifts build-up away from the scalp is always a must-have, as is a spray that can be focused on the roots to add a little boost in this area. Finally, make sure you’re blow drying your hair without the nozzle first to create some texture before going in at 80% dryness to apply your styling products and finish off the hair.
Start your journey towards thicker, voluminous-looking locks with the Christophe Robin Delicate Volumising Shampoo with Rose Extracts. This product offers a whole host of benefits in addition to expert plumping action, however this is definitely it’s biggest achievement. Use this shampoo daily or every few days, depending on your preference, to unlock volume, shine, smoothness and even colour protection. Key ingredients such as necessary antioxidants help to prevent against pigment loss for vibrant, long-lasting colour.
Next up is conditioner. The Christophe Robin Delicate Volumising Conditioner with Rose Extracts offers a lightweight yet nourishing formula that gives the hair that airy texture without compromising on hydrating action. If you’ve been well trained to just apply conditioner to the mid-lengths and ends of your hair, you’ll be surprised that this product can actually be used from root to tip if desired. The result is more volume at the roots without that heavy feeling or unwanted greasiness.
Every now and then, your locks might need a little refresh — that’s where the Christophe Robin Cleansing Volumising Paste comes in. Formulated with pure rassoul clay and rose extracts, this deep-cleansing hair treatment works like a scrub and volumising paste in one. Use once a week or less frequently as desired, in place of your shampoo. Thin locks will feel lightweight yet bouncy and full, and the scalp will be expertly purified for hair that stays fresh for longer.
Finally, use the Christophe Robin Instant Volumising Mist pre-blow dry or on wet hair to increase volume and texture. If you choose to go the blow dry route, blast your hair without the nozzle as suggested to give the hair a rougher, thicker-looking texture, then apply the mist to add in some lasting volume to the roots and mid-lengths. If you prefer to let your hair air-dry, wait until it’s about 80% dry and then spritz into the roots and mid-lengths for added texture and density.
