Balm, mask, definition cream… the best care for curly and frizzy hair

• Two nutritious rituals to start from scratch
Known for his very famous “Washing Scrub” and for his treatments for blondes, Christophe Robin now focuses on the care of curly hair. The expert hairdresser has just developed two rituals, one of which is specialized for wavy to curly hair and the other targets very curly to frizzy hair.
Wavy to curly hair that forms an “S” shaped spiral needs light hydration and gentle conditioning to define curls. Thanks to a duo composed of a cleansing treatment and a definition cream composed of a vegetable mixture, omega 3 and 6 and nigella seed oils, the hair is softened and silky.
Very curly to frizzy hair that forms a “Z” shaped spiral needs deep hydration and nourishment. That’s why their ritual is made up of a cleansing balm and a defining butter. On the menu: kokum butter to deeply nourish and prevent breakage.
Both rituals provide plump, silky and shiny curls.
