Christophe Robin Cleansing Purifying Scrub is a sea salt scrub for your scalp. How cool is that?! Keep reading for more details…
Product Details and Claims
Christophe Robin’s Cleansing Purifying Scrub with Sea Salt is an interesting product. It is a moisturizing shampoo enriched with sea salt to cleanse, exfoliate and soothe sensitive or oily scalps while delivering essential hydration. This scrub is ideal as a detox treatment to cleanse and rebalance sensitive or oily scalps, but also as a post-coloring treatment to relieve stinging and itchiness and remove chemical residues left on the scalp. Its original formula contains sea salt – a natural exfoliant – which eliminates impurities and supports natural blood micro-circulation, providing rebalancing mineral salts. This paste is enriched with a 100 percent plant-derived agent, which offers deep and long-lasting hydration even after rinsing. The scalp is soothed, rebalanced, and healthy while the hair is left shiny and completely clean.
Price: $52 USD/8.33 oz
So…I am a fan of this product. It’s an exfoliator for your scalp! According to Christophe, he noticed that women suffered from itching and discomfort during and after coloring at his salon. Until now, the only effective solution to avoid this was using coarse salt dissolved in water and applying during rinsing. Inspired by this observation and the remedy used, he worked with his formulators to create a specific product designed for sensitive and oily scalps. This cleansing purifying scrub contains sea salt, a natural exfoliant, combined with hydrating active ingredients to help absorb all the polluting particles that suffocate the hair base, while calming irritation.
I’ve been coloring my hair jet black for many years now and it drives me crazy when I see color residue on my scalp. I’ve been using this product for a few weeks and it has helped me get rid of the color residue from the scalp…which is a huge plus. It’s like a clarifying shampoo that also exfoliates! I also use this as a deep cleansing treatment once a month or so.
To use this product as a shampoo, apply about one tablespoon or so on wet hair after rinsing the color. Delicately massage the whole scalp, adding water as needed. Make sure to rinse thoroughly. I would not say it’s a moisturizing shampoo at all. I actually find that it strips natural oil from my hair exactly like a clarifying shampoo, which is why it’s very important to condition. Overall, I would recommend this product if you are looking to get rid of residue from hair coloring and styling products and want that squeaky clean feel. In general, everyone using styling products should use a clarifying shampoo every week or so, but I find this product takes it one step further!
