I am a bug fan of Christophe Robin hair care, and already shared my love for the Delicate Volumizing Shampoo with Rose Extracts (review).
And today I want to about two other shampoos.
Antioxidant Cleansing Milk with 4 Oils And Blueberry, £39 but now only £19 here.
This is a really cool product, I was a bit worried that it would be too heavy for my hair type but it’s wasn’t. I was also worried that it would not be foamy enough but that was not the case either.
This Cleansing Milk not only washes the hair nicely but also leaves it shiny and glossy. And smells incredible. It is formulated for dry or highlighted hair and contains plant oils (10%) and enriched with vitamins A and E, Omega 3 and Omega 6.
I have never tried a milk before but was pleasantly surprised with this one, gentle and nourishing without weighting the hair down, even though mine is not dry or highlighted.

Hydrating Shampoo with Aloe Vera, £25
While the first “shampoo” was for dry hair, and this one for all types of hair, it did not really work for me, unfortunately. My fine, thin and long hair doesn’t agree well with hydrating or nourishing products usually. Although a lot of top stylists do suggest we wash our hair everyday ( to wash out all the dust, pollution, and all the smells which end up on our hair), I prefer washing it every other day. And with this shampoo it doesn’t work, as my hair doesn’t look fresh the next day but rather weighted down. I am sure you know what I mean if, like myself, you have long and fine hair type.
While it did not work for my hair type, it can be a great product for a lot of people, as it has of 98.6% natural-origin (aloe is second ingredient) ingredients and is very mild and gentle. It smells nice, too.
Ingredients: Aqua, Aloe Barbadensis Leaf Juice*, Coco-Glucoside, Ammonium Lauryl Sulfate, Cocamidopropyl Betaine, Sodium Pca, Cannabis Sativa Seed Extract, Linum Usitatissimum Seed Extract*, Glycerin, Glyceryl Caprylate, Parfum, Propanediol, Sodium Phytate, Benzyl Alcohol, Benzoic Acid, Limonene, Linalool.

However, I have noticed that the shampoo is out of stock pretty much everywhere, and there is a soap instead. Is it a replacement? I bet aloe vera is great for both hair and body.
Both shampoos that I have were a present from my husband, as he knows that I love the brand, and wanted to surprise me. He chose them himself, and am not entirely sure why he chose those two.
I would have chosen Purifying Shampoo with Jujube Bark Extract (daily rebalancing and calming shampoo (greasy roots and dry ends) and Cleansing Volumizing Paste with Pure Rassoul Clay And Rose Extracts (deep cleansing treatment for fine hair lacking density).
However, it was really cool to try something different. And I may just have to get the other two myself later on.
All Christophe Robin products are exceptional and are a real pleasure to use. After all, Catherine Deneuve wouldn’t trust just about anyone with her hair. And I would definitely recommend this brand, as well, just make sure you choose something suitable for you.
By the way, I am also currently using Cleansing Purifying Scrub with Sea Salt (purifying, hydrating and soothing shampoo for sensitive or oily scalps), so will definitely share about it soon.
