This morning my toddler pointed at my air-dried hair and asked what was going on. I taught him a new word (frizz) and got definitive proof that my hair does indeed look different on days when I don’t use Christophe Robin Daily Hair Cream with Sandalwood, a silicone-free leave-in conditioner.
I’ve always preferred air-drying over blow-drying , but it’s getting harder to pull that off – now that I’m in my late 30s, my hair is a little dryer and a lot fuzzier than it used to be. A lot of oils and leave-in conditioners are too heavy to use on the flyaways around my roots, and then really, what’s the point? Christophe Robin’s Sandalwood leave-in conditioner is one that actually smooths that puffy air-dried look without flattening my roots.
Its mix of hydrating ingredients (like glycerin and apricot kernel oil) and light creamy texture let me air-dry without the frizz or puffiness. But my favorite way to use it is actually after I’ve air-dried my hair. I run a dollop over clean, dry hair, and then run another little squeeze of the cream over my roots. I get a kick out of watching the instant transformation from fuzzy to shiny, like a hair commercial that plays out in my own bathroom. Hey, sometimes it’s the little things.
