I have a sensitive scalp and it behaves very differently in different seasons. And for that, I have tried and tested a few of the best luxury brands out there in the last few years. I am a fan of Christophe Robin since I bought my first products from him. They were Christophe Robin Regenerating Mask with Rare Prickly Pear Oil and Christophe Robin Cleansing Purifying Scrub with Sea Salt.
What is Christophe Robin Cleansing Purifying Scrub with Sea Salt?
Christophe Robin Cleansing Purifying Scrub with Sea Salt is described as a Purifying, Hydrating, and soothing shampoo for sensitive scalps and oily roots. Sephora describes this as a purifying, moisturizing, and soothing scrub that is the ideal detox treatment to remove product buildup and rebalance sensitive or oily scalps. It can also be used as a post-coloring treatment to relieve itchiness and remove chemical residues left on the scalp. Its original formula contains sea salt—a natural exfoliant—which eliminates impurities and supports natural blood circulation. The paste is enriched with a 100 percent plant-derived agent, which offers deep and long-lasting hydration to the scalp even after rinsing, leaving it soothed, rebalanced, and healthy. It is free of Paraben, Silicone, and colorants.
It is advised to be used once or twice a week and I have used this every week for two months. At first, this product seems very different and difficult to use but once you get started, it seems easy and worth it when you see the results. The first thing I liked about this product is the idea of scrub for the scalp, I do have a lot of buildup from the styling products, or when I have dandruff, it is just a mess (i know it is not the right way to describe my own hair but that is true).
How I use Christophe Robin Cleansing Purifying Scrub with Sea Salt?
I wet my hair, take a small amount, almost a teaspoon of this into the palm of my hand. Then, I massage it on my scalp gently. Then I add a very small amount of water and continue to massage gently, it lathers very nicely. Keep in mind the lather does feel different on the hands than the lather from other shampoos and soaps. Then I rinse thoroughly, yes it does take quite an effort to have this all out of my hair. I apply a conditioning treatment to the length and ends of my hair.
I prefer to use Christophe Robin Regenerating Mask with Rare Prickly Pear Oil as they both work very well together. If not, any other conditioner works well with this. After rinsing the conditioner thoroughly, yes I am done. Just want to mention here that the smell of this product is very fresh and lemony which I like. Without any conditioner afterward, my hair feels a bit dry as it is a purifying shampoo.
I have really liked the concept of a scalp and hair scrub and the after-results. My itchy, irritated and sensitive scalp feels calm. Also, my dandruff stays at bay with regular use, and my hair does feel soft and shiny. In addition, I notice it does give a nice volume to hair which is a big yes for me.
Christophe Robin Regenerating Mask with Rare Prickly Pear Oil and Cleansing Purifying Scrub work well together. And of course even separately.
