Spring Hair Care Tips and Tricks | Salon 10016 | NYC Salon
Great tips and tricks from a French Colorist.
“If you take good care of your hair, the color should last six weeks no problem,” says the French hair colorist Christophe Robin, who’s opening a new salon in Paris soon. He also believes that springtime is when your locks grow — “like vegetation,” he says, attributing the correlation to the increased hours of daylight. In preparation of the season ahead, Robin shares with T his holistic tips and tricks to detox, soothe and lighten strands.(Salon 10016 NYC)
Go Natural (Maybe even Organic)
Robin’s eponymous hair care line relies on ingredients often found in healthy diets and skin care regimens: regenerating prickly pear, antioxidant blueberries, purifying sage. He knows that what you put on your head has the same long-term and visible effects as what you put in your body: “There are so many good oils in nature, and the best vitamins are the ones you eat in good food. And I use ingredients such as vinegar because it’s antibacterial and so good against the dandruff; lemon, it’s an acid PH that works so well to lock the artificial pigment inside your hair and to bring a natural shine; lavender calms down the scalp when you have itchiness; sage is the best thing against perspiration; chamomile is the best way to lift the hair in a gentle way.”(Salon 10016 NYC)
Robin’s D.I.Y. chamomile infusion with lemon helps to lighten and brighten color:
1. Place organic chamomile in warm water overnight.
2. Strain out chamomile and apply the infused water to hair.
3. Squeeze on a little lemon juice.
4. Enjoy the sun. “When you stay in the dark, it’s never going to lift because it’s the light that makes it work, active, you know,” Robin says. “So if you put that on top of the chamomile infusion, the lemon, it’s going to be so good to lift in the sun.” He says the combination works on natural and artificial color alike.
Air Dry — When You Can
After months of blow-drying hair to avoid winter colds, Robin suggests taking a break from heating appliances. “To let it dry by itself is the best way.” But if you must blow dry, “try to be very far away,” he says.(Salon 10016 NYC)
Detox the Scalp (and Your Diet)
“There’s a real link on your skin and your scalp with what you eat,” says Robin, who connects even hangovers to oily skin. “The scalp is linked to the liver. When the liver is tired, your skin and your scalp are tired.” He suggests detoxing the scalp once every four shampoos with his Cleansing Purifying Scrub With Sea Salt. “And right after that, use my regenerating mask with prickly pear seed oil. It goes deep inside the skin into the hair, into the scalp, and it helps the growth.”
He also prescribes an at-home remedy:
1. Before shampooing, place sea salt in a bowl of water. “You don’t dissolve it too much,” he says. (When selecting a salt, consider that Robin’s Cleansing Purifying Scrub With Sea Salt features large crystals.)
2. Put the mixture on your scalp and gently massage. “It’s a great thing to avoid itchiness, oily scalp, allergies,” Robin says. (To soothe a dry scalp, he suggests also massaging a little almond oil onto it before shampooing.)
3. Rinse and shampoo hair.
