Rainy days have been getting me down…well, more like they have been getting my hair down. Nothing kills my volume and curl like heavy, damp days. To combat the weather, I turn to my Cristophe volumizing products.
Cristophe is a high-end salon in Beverly Hills, but lucky for us it is also a wonderful drugstore line that is easy on the pocketbook. Not only are Cristophe products affordable, they are also effective – always a great combination. My ‘witches brew’ for damp days includes Cristophe Volumizing Spray Tonic ($10.99). Argan Oil Treatment ($10.99), and Shaping Hair Spray ($10.99).
My long, fine hair absolutely loves Cristophe Volumizing Spray Tonic. This is a spray-on volumizer that is applied to roots while hair is damp. It does a fantastic job of creating full, thick volume without weighing my hair down. The formula includes something called ‘Vital Energy Complex’. VEC has several nutrient-rich ingredients including Solar Vitis, Glycogen, Adenosine Tri Phosphate, and Phospholipids. Together, these ingredients are like a skin care treatment for the scalp. It’s really great stuff.
I follow the Volumizing Spray Tonic with a nickel-size amount of the Argan Oil Treatment.
The Argan Oil Treatment is a beautiful oil that makes my hair super smooth and wonderfully shiny. My hair absorbs it quickly, and my damp hair immediately feels smoother and not at all heavy or greasy. Argan Oil is a terrific antioxidant that makes hair stronger and provides protection from heat styling and the environment.
Just like the Volumizing Spray Tonic, the Argan Oil Treatment has the VEC blend of awesome ingredients. Once I dry and style my hair, I spray on some Shaping Spray to help my hair’s volume and curls last all day long.
The Shaping Hair Spray gives a flexible hold for natural looking hair that isn’t stiff or sticky. It keeps my fine hair from drooping even on damp and rainy days. I need to note that it does have a discernible sweet fragrance that definitely lingers, but for those who don’t mind fragrance this is a terrific hair spray option.
I am also happy to report that all of Cristophe’s products are color safe, paraben free, and cruelty free. The next time you are at the drugstore, pick up some Cristophe and wilted hair will be a thing of the past. – Lisa
