#SummerBeauty: Christophe Robin Purifying Shampoo

Christophe Robin, according to many press, is one of the most popular luxury hair care brands in the market. So I got hold of its purifying shampoo with great hope that it would save my oily scalp and dry hair ends during summer time; $38 for 250ml – it must work wonders. Ironically, turns out the descriptions: “Greasy Roots & Dry Ends” on the bottle means its actual effect not what it helps with.

The so-called purifying shampoo made my scalp more greasy and hair ends more dry after each wash. At first, I thought it was because I did not wash off products properly. But later I realize the not-clean feeling is exactly what this shampoo gives you. I prefer my $3 Head & Shoulders shampoo to this fancy but not effective one, just for the sake of having clean hair.

On the bright side, I would say this is the kind of products perfect for anyone with dry scalp and oily hair ends. Oh, and it smells quite chic.

Born and raised in China; came to NYU for university and Columbia for grad school. Now I am officially a woman in tech:) I have worked in the beauty industry for a year after graduating from college. But my obsession with beauty starts since high school, when I suffered from acnes. That being said, I have tried out a lot of skincare products as well as makeup and I have a lot of opinions on them (also high standards). I hope this is the place you can visit from time to time to find beauty inspirations, some fashion finds or even just to kill time. For general queries and chit-chat, you can reach me via email at .
