Christophe Robin Low Shampoo Cleansing Mask Review

Through the help of double process bleach and sorcery, my asian black hair was lifted to a platinum blonde. But it was not without its pitfalls. My previously silky, virginal hair barely required drugstore conditioner. Post-platinum, my beauty routine ramped up from non-existent to lets-just-spend-every-sunday-until-eternity-wholly-dedicated-to-keeping-my-hair-from-deadness. My hair didn’t just resemble hay, it felt like it. ‘Crunchy’ is the word I’d use to describe it.

After experimenting with almost every deep conditioner at Sephora, I came across Christophe Robin’s line of products. The brand has a prickly pear cult following, but I was intrigued by the contradictory term “cleansing mask” scrawled across their low shampoo (written out en francais, making it extra fancy). At that point I had gone through a costly lineup of meh masks, and none of them were intended for cleaning hair, but for hydrating it. What did I have to lose, besides all the hair I was already losing from mass breakage?

THIS. MASK. IS. EVERYTHING. I can’t sing higher praises for any one beauty product more than this product. It worked so freaking well I was legit frightened by it. It’s black magic, which is the only explanation for how it revives deadness to life. After leaving it in for 15 minutes, my hair was transformed from the inside out, leaving it baby soft. My hair is as healthy as it can be at this end of the color spectrum. I’ve recommended it to all my friends, both platinum and not, because it not only moisturizes hair but also exfoliates your scalp too. (Which is something you probably never do… unless it’s just me that didn’t realize my dandruff-prone head required exfoliation).

It carries a hefty price tag, but trust that it’s completely worth it. I use it weekly and a tub lasts about four months. Plus it smells real pretty.
