My hair was in DESPERATE need of help. It was a shedding frizzy disaster, and it was even falling out really badly. I could just hear my hair ripping as the comb slid through it, even when I used detangler. It was awful. My curls looked horrible and my split ends were out of control. For reference, I have mid-back length hair that is half natural, and the mid-lengths to the ends have been bleached, dyed, and colored more times than I can even count. The bottom half of my hair is currently bleached almost white. The top half is my natural brunette color. My hair is pretty curly/wavy.
Back in October Allure had an offer to try their Beauty Box subscription out for a month for $10, so I decided to try it out. They also gave you $25 in free money to spend in their "members-only" store. Well, you bet I took advantage of that deal too and bought a set of absolutely incredible Christophe Robin hair care products: The Crème de Jour Au Bois de Santal, or Daily Hair Cream With Sandalwood, and the Brume Hydratante Instantanée À L' Aloe Vera, or Hydrating Leave-In Mist With Aloe Vera. I seriously don't know how I've gotten along this far in life without them! All I had to do was pay shipping, so I got an amazing deal, because both products are constantly sold out at his store online, as well as so are a number of other stores I've come to learn. The Daily Hair Cream normally costs $43 by itself, and the Aloe spray is usually $29.95, I paid $4.95 so I think I got a pretty good deal!
From the first time that I opened this cream, I was in love. Just the scent alone had me hooked! It smells absolutely fantastic! It smells like a really good unisex cologne/perfume, or like a high-end salon and a bottle of cologne had a baby maybe, haha. It's hard to describe but it's a-m-a-z-i-n-g! Even my husband likes it, and he's the pickiest person in the universe when it comes to hair products, skincare, things like that. He complains that everything smells too "feminine". I really like the consistency of the cream too. It's thick, but not HEAVY. It's a yellow cream that you apply mainly from the mid-lengths to the ends of your hair, but can also be applied to your baby hairs if you'd like, I read. It doesn't get "crunchy" or "hard", and I typically just let my curls air dry.
This plus the combination of the Aloe Mist has literally SAVED my hair! My hair isn't frizzy and messy any more. It's soft and shiny. My curls are defined and glossy. My split ends look SO much better! It's incredible the difference in my hair! It's like two different people or something. My hair is silky and my waves look more beautiful every time I use these products. My curls look great for days and I can always refresh them with this cream. It doesn't leave my hair feeling sticky or hard, and it doesn't make my hair greasy any faster than it normally would be. It deeply moisturizes my hair, yet still manages to not feel heavy or like there's really much at all even on my hair. It has brought my hair back to life! It moisturizes my hair and keeps my curls hydrated for days, it's amazing. My hair isn't a giant frizz factory constantly, even with all the dry heat!
