The new Purifying Mask with Thermal Mud is an anti-pollution pre-wash treatment that deeply revitalises the skin barrier, improving its ability to defend against external aggressors. It draws out impurities and pollution build-up from the scalp to provide an instant feeling of freshness.

With its scalp-cooling sensation and spa-like muddy mousse texture, the enveloping Purifying Mask with Thermal Mud offers a blissful sensorial experience – complete with the Detox range’s invigorating signature fragrance. After application, the scalp feels comfortable and soothed, roots are refreshed and hair is healthy-looking, soft and shiny.

Key Ingredients:

Harvested from the Mediterranean coast, the rich mud is highly concentrated in sulphur: a mineral known for its power to rebalance the scalp’s microbiome.

  • Spirulina, a blue-green algae often referred to as the ‘superfood of the sea’, which contains beneficial nutrients including Niacinamide
  • Deep Sea Mineral Complex, a pure concentration of magnesium-rich deep-sea water from the Irish Sea
  • Deep Sea Red Algae Complex, a sea moss from La Bretagne in France, smooths cuticles and conditions the hair fibre

This mask has been expertly formulated to support the scalp’s barrier function, helping to protect it from pollution and shield it against external aggressors for healthier-looking, hydrated hair that shines.



The new Purifying Shampoo with Thermal Mud is a powerful daily detoxifying shampoo formulated to draw out impurities and pollution from the scalp and lengths for an exceptionally clean, fresh feeling. It’s the best shampoo for an itchy scalp because after application the scalp feels balanced, while hair is full of vitality and hydration.

Key Ingredients:

  • Thermal Mud Extract helps to remove product build-up in hair caused by everyday impurities and pollution
  • Glacial Baltic Sea Red Algae Extract contains gentle resurfacing properties to help smooth and protect hair cuticles that are damaged by pollution particles and environmental stressors, extending time between washes
  • Thermal clay, a natural-origin ingredient, provides a stimulating wake-up call for the scalp and helps to soften lengths for moisturised, healthy-looking hair

What are the reasons for oily hair and sensitive scalps?

While there are many reasons for oily hair, the main culprits are overwashing, hair type, harsh hair products and external aggressors. City living means your hair continues to meet outside aggressors like pollution, UV light and wind every day. These harsh elements can build up on the scalp and lead to scalp sensitivity. When hair is greasy after washing and the scalp becomes irritated, you could be using the wrong products for your needs. Wondering how to clean oily hair gently? Look for products that have natural ingredients and soothing properties, helping to exfoliate and hydrate in tandem.

Why is scalp care important?

Your scalp encourages hair growth and regulates oil production. If you find your hair is greasy after washing, this could point to signs of an unbalanced scalp. Overproduction of oil can lead to an irritated scalp that suffers from itchiness and product build up. Elevate the everyday with Christophe Robin’s Purifying range, formulated to rebalance, detoxify and leave beautifully hydrated hair.

How to clean oily hair and soothe a sensitive scalp in 3 steps

STEP 1: Purifying Mask with Thermal Mud

Once a week, or as a quick-fix refresher treatment, dampen hair and massage the pre-wash treatment onto the scalp and roots. Leave the mask on for 3 minutes before rinsing thoroughly. For a more intensive detox treatment, apply generously to dry hair from root to tip and leave on for 15 minutes. Rinse thoroughly.

STEP 2: Purifying Shampoo with Thermal Mud

Looking for the best shampoo for an itchy scalp? The delicate cleanser can be used to wash hair as often as needed. When applied after the Purifying Mask, the Purifying Shampoo with Thermal Mud maximises and extends its benefits. It can also be used in parallel with the Cleansing Purifying Scrub, a weekly treatment not intended for daily use. Simply apply a walnut-size amount onto wet hair, focusing on the roots. Emulsify by adding water, massage the scalp, then rinse thoroughly.

STEP 3: Purifying Conditioner

Now that your scalp is feeling refreshed and invigorated, apply this light gelée conditioner to detangle and smooth hair. It will instantly glide through roots and lengths to improve the appearance of dry hair. This formula is powered by a cocktail of natural sea minerals for instant results and lasting benefits.

Now you know how to clean oily hair with Christophe Robin, discover why you need an exfoliating scalp scrub and the benefits it offers for your hair.
