Christophe Robin's anti pollution mineral mud mask


Each carefully curated product on this list is known for its highly concentrated yet gentle formula, powered by precious natural-origin ingredients. They work toward unleashing your hair’s full potential with indulgent, luxury textures that bring out the best in each and every hair type. Each product is not only precisely formulated to deliver unparalleled results, but even the way it looks, feels, and acts when applied to hair is actively considered. After all, the texture of a scrub often defines how harsh or gentle a treatment feels. Every Christophe Robin product has been designed to work in perfect harmony with your hair to deliver salon-worthy results with every wash. 


Regular exfoliation is key to scalp health, keeping your skin balanced and nourished while also improving circulation and warding off any unwanted product build-up. There are a range of different exfoliants, with different textures, ingredients, and ways of working. The key difference is whether an exfoliant is physical or chemical. Most ‘scrub’ exfoliants require you to physically move them with your hands and rub them into your roots and hair, as such they are physical exfoliants. They can be formulated with a range of small particles, such as sugar, coffee, or salt, and aid in lifting build-up from the scalp.

Cleansing Purifying Scrub with Sea Salt

This deep cleansing shampoo refreshes sensitive or oily scalps and removes daily build-up, helping to calm the sensation of itchy scalps. Formulated with real sea salt crystals to gently exfoliate, this cleanser can be worked into your regular routine with no added stress. Simply use once a week, or post-colouring, to help your scalp feel rebalanced and purified, leaving hair looking beautifully fresh and shiny.


A serum is lighter than your average cream or paste and designed to penetrate deeper into the hair strand without leaving an oily residue. Serums have a variety of uses from providing heat protection to aiding in moisture retention. When choosing your serums avoid silicones, oily formulas, or astringent chemicals.

Regenerating Serum with Prickly Pear Oil

A silicone-free, fast-absorbing hybrid texture. The non-greasy formula of the Regenerating Serum is designed to infuse hair with a soft, sumptuous feel. Indulge in stress-free styling as this weightless serum shields hair from heat damage up to 440F (230°C).


Hair masks are often used as deep conditioners or as intensive treatments for your hair. What makes them different from your traditional conditioner is that the ingredients are usually more concentrated, and the mask is left on your hair for longer — anywhere from 20 minutes to several hours. Generally, use a hair mask once or twice per week in place of your regular conditioner. The ideal frequency will depend on the current condition and type of your tresses.

Purifying Mask with Thermal Mud

Perfect for stressed scalps, this detoxifying pre-wash is a revitalising, purifying treatment to help draw out the build-up of impurities and pollution so the scalp is left feeling comfortable, roots freshened and hair soft, manageable, and healthy-looking. When applied to damp hair you should massage the product onto the scalp and roots. Leave on for 3 minutes before rinsing thoroughly. When applied to dry hair for an intensive detox, smooth generously through dry hair from root to tip, leave on to penetrate for 15 minutes, and rinse thoroughly.


Pastes are naturally thicker formulas, designed with a range of benefits in mind. There are pastes for cleansing, that you incorporate into your wash routine, or pastes for styling. When choosing your paste products, aim for one that is gentle on the hair and scalp. Silicone-free formulas will reduce the risk of product build-up and naturally formulated products that are free of harsh chemicals are unlikely to strip moisture from the hair.

Cleansing Volumising Paste with Rose Extract

Texture: The Christophe Robin Cleansing Volumising Paste with Rose Extract has the rich, indulgent texture of a paste when first applied. But when exposed to water this nourishing cleanser transforms into an airy, volumising foam designed to enhance fine hair so it looks denser and feels thicker.


A gelée has a gel-like texture and, depending on the formulation, they can be a versatile alternative to traditional heavy, cream formulas. The slick texture of a gelee means they’re easy to apply from root to tip no matter the hair type or texture. Making them perfect for products that smooth through hair and coat each strand, like conditioners or styling products.

Temporary Colour Gel

This expert colour gel helps to hide greys by surrounding the hair fibre with pigments composed of 92% natural-origin ingredients. The colour washes out evenly over 5-7 shampoos, allowing you to conceal visible roots as desired. The shade blends seamlessly for a natural and radiant result. This helps hair appear fuller with added luminosity.

Purifying Conditioner Gelée with Sea Minerals

Do you desire a conditioner formulated to detangle, hydrate and soothe your scalp and dry ends? Then the Purifying Conditioner Gelée with Sea Minerals is the perfect remedy for you. Designed to coat every strand in a light-weight gel texture, this purifying formula is rich with conditioners derived from Guar Beans and Brassica Oil plus an expertly selected cocktail of sea minerals.


The most delicate form of haircare on today’s list, a hair mist is an ultrafine spray that can be applied to your hair either before or after styling. When sprayed they coat the hair in a thin layer of product, meaning you get the maximum coverage with a minimal amount of effort.

Instant Volumising Leave-in Mist with Rose Water

Formulated with a delicate rose blend infusion and Baobab Leaf extract, the Christophe Robin Instant Volumising Leave-In Mist with Rose Water is the final act in gaining luscious, lifted locks. Let Oligoelements from seawater texturise and give life to your roots, resulting in beautiful, bouncy hair that is perfect for date night. The fine mist helps thin, fine, or flat hair to look thicker and fuller while delivering natural hold and nourished strands.

Hydrating Leave-In Mist with Aloe Vera

This leave-in mist detangles to help restore the appearance of dry, dull hair so it’s healthier-looking and smooth to the touch. Ideal for refreshing your look in between washes, it improves suppleness and manageability while adding luminous shine.
