I’m starting the new week with an incredibly decadent giveaway for you. Do you remember my summer love affair with the Christophe Robin volumising haircare à la rose? Beautiful, bouncifying shampoo and conditioner with the most delicate rose scent? (If you don’t remember then you can remind yourselves here.) Well. There’s something even newer from hair colourist extraordinaire Christophe – the Regenerating Collection – and I have five whole sets of it to give away!
Christophe Robin’s Regenerating Collection has, at its core, the Regnerating Mask with Rare Prickly Pear Seed Oil; a highly concentrated deep conditioning mask that helps to repair and strengthen damaged hair. A bit of a Google on Prickly Pear Seed Oil throws up the fact that it has a record concentration of essential fatty acids and vitamin E – twice as much as argan oil! Bring it on.
I tried this mask in the summer and it was incredibly powerful – I rather overdid it, I think, because you only need the tiniest amount. It’s a total hair treatment – you massage in from roots right down to the tips so that the scalp is stimulated as well as the lengths being cared for. But the result is stronger, healthier-feeling hair – it’s the perfect kind of mask to use when you’re having a long beauty session in the bath. I collect disposable shower caps from hotels for precisely this type of event; I squeeze all the water from my freshly-washed hair, apply a mask and wind my hair up on to the top of my head before putting on the cap. It stops my hair from going into the water when I relax back into the bath.
Where was I? The Regenerating Collection. There’s now a rich, creamy shampoo (again, enriched with prickly pear oil) and a multi-use, intense repair balm. The repair balm is brilliant for dry ends, especially if you have your hair coloured on a regular basis and have ends like straw. Just a tiny amount melted between fingertips can be used to add a bit of definition, too – kind of like a styling wax, but massively conditioning at the same time. It’s non-sticky and can also be used on lips as a salve, on dry skin anywhere on the face or body and as a soothing balm post-shave.
I have five sets of this gorgeous Regenerating Collection to give away, each comprising a shampoo (worth £30) a mask (worth £51) and a balm (worth £29). The total value of each set is a massive £110 so this is truly the haircare routine of dreams. If your hair is in need of some intensive care then this is the ultimate prize…
