The only shampoo I always come back to

You may know I’ve decided to stop straightening my hair in January, so I know have to deal with curly hair, which is way more high maintenance that I thought. I’m also trying to use nice sulfate free shampoos and shower gels, not that easy to find actually. For shower gels actually, the ones I’m really happy about are by Weleda, a gorgeous organic and natural brand, check them out if you’re looking for a gentle shower gel, they’re really good!

So I’ve been experimenting with a few different things, and to be honest I don’t have any cult product to tell you about because none of the stuff I’ve been trying out is good enough in my opinion. Except for this Christophe Robin Antioxidant Cleansing Milk with 4 oils and blueberry that I’ve been using for literally years.

I’m quite low maintenance nowadays because I simply wash my hair, sometimes put a cream to coat the curls and make my hair a bit more defined/bouncy and that’s it. It’s been quite warm the last few weeks, so I tend to air dry my hair. In the winter however, I blow dry my hair with a diffuser. My goal is either to look like Andie MacDowell in the old days, meaning, when she embraced her natural curls, or to look like a freshly washed golden retriever with soft curls…

This gorgeous shampoo is paraben, silicone, SLS and colorant free which makes it extremely gentle therefore my scalp does not get irritated. It is aimed at dry or highlighted hair and I can definitely feel how it sort of hydrates and conditions the hair without leaving it feeling heavy or greasy at all. It also has a very interesting creamy texture, kind of like a cleansing cream you’d use on your face, which I’m not mad about because it makes the whole “washing my hair” routine, that I usually hate, more luxurious and somehow enjoyable! Christophe Robin is a very well know french hairdresser who launched his brand back in 1999 only using the finest ingredients and truly thinking about how to make women feel better in their own…hair. He’s really inspiring and though his brand is quite expensive, I believe the price to be legitimate because of the quality of the formulas. The packaging’s not bad either you know… Which is always an added bonus.

It takes me a long time to use it up as well so it’s worth it! I’ve tried a few other products from the brand that I liked, but this shampoo definitely is something that I won’t stop using any time soon because I truly believe it’s changed my hair in the best possible way!

Do let me know if you know of any gentle shampoos, and even masks, my curly hair journey‘s just started…
