Struggling to find a Shampoo and Conditioner to suit your hair type?

We sat down with emerging stylist and colourist James Plain to chat about the best suited Shampoo and Conditioners for blonde hair, fine hair, oily roots and dry ends, curly frizzy hair, colour damaged hair and normal hair. As Jaye Edwards’ Assistant he’s definitely the perfect go-to for this kind of much needed information!

When it comes to Shampoo and Conditioner, it’s very crucial to know exactly what your hair’s problem areas are so you can tailor your regime specifically. It’s best to ask your hairdresser to assess the condition of your hair during your appointment to find out if you hair needs more moisture, volume or oil control etc where they can then provide you with their best recommendations.

A more personalised approach to what you wash your hair with will help you maintain lush locks, keep your hair strong and healthy and increase the longevity of a fresh new colour!


Christophe Robin Clarifying Shampoo and Baby Blonde Treatment

Christophe Robin’s Camomile Clarifying Shampoo helps to lighten and brighten blondes (cleans them out), by eliminating product build up, hard water residue and other chemicals that may cause blonde hair to appear dull. Follow this up with the Baby Blonde Treatment, which will neutralise unwanted tones in the hair (yellow and orange) and help to define highlights. This product is amazing as it is also very nourishing and acts as a hydration masque, so it’s like a big drink of water for your hair!
