Autumn Haircare with Christophe Robin
Autumn is well and truly here, and along with the changing of the leaves, you may well find yourself noticing a few changes in your hair, too. As the colder months settle in, it’s not unusual for your hair to become drier than usual and command a little more TLC. So, to help you keep your locks looking their best, we spoke to Andrea Da Costa, the training manager for Christophe Robin, about all things autumn haircare.
Christophe Robin is a Parisian haircare brand named after its founder and A-list celebrity hairdresser, Christophe Robin. A colour expert, Christophe Robin has successfully created one of the most well-loved luxury hair brands on the beauty market. With a range of products to suit all hair needs, and a powerhouse collective of ingredients, take your tresses to the next level this autumn.
As we head into autumn, which Christophe Robin products should we use to treat post-summer dryness?
“During summer season, sun exposure, salt water, and chlorine tend to sensitise the hair fibre, leaving it dry and brittle.” Andrea said. “To restore your hair and offer it an intense dose of nutrition, go for the regenerating regimen; infused with prickly pear oil, this three-step routine intensely rejuvenates hair while offering long-lasting shine and softness.”
Designed to gently cleanse and nourish dry and damaged hair, this shampoo, strengthens, and revitalises.
With nurturing omegas 6 and 9 to strengthen, the shampoo is also enriched with a guar bean derivative to smooth frizz, and pro-vitamin B5 to enhance shine. Leave your hair looking luminous and healthy, and feeling soft and smooth.

For coloured hair that has lost its vibrancy after sun exposure this summer, which Christophe Robin products would you recommend?
“The Shade Variation Mask is a haircare staple (available in 5 shades).” Andrea said. “This nourishing mask is infused with almond butter and pigments to nourish strands while neutralising unwanted tones and reviving your coloured hair. Applied once every 3 to 5 shampoos it will refresh your colour with fresh, luminous tones.”

With temperatures cooling, which Christophe Robin products should we add to our haircare routine this autumn to keep our locks looking healthy?
“Christophe Robin offers a complete line-up of transformative products for all hair types,” Andrea said, “choose the day-to-day routine that suits your scalp and hair, and add an extra weekly, intense treatment to protect your hair from cold weather, wind, and scarves.
