Coloring your hair most often involves exposing yourself to potentially powerful toxins. A genius new way: The famous French colorist Christophe Robin has come up with an at-home clean hair color that blends seamlessly, looks beautifully natural (like the color he’d give you if you flew to his Parisian salon), and lasts for several shampoos before fading. It also feels (and acts) more like a hair treatment than hair color. Best of all, his clean hair color is made without PPD (a compound found in permanent and semipermanent hair-color formulas that can cause everything from scalp itchiness to life-threatening reactions, and has been linked to bladder cancer and autoimmune disorders), resorcinol (another concerning and common hair color chemical that causes skin irritation), ammonia (a powerful corrosive), peroxide, oxidants, silicones, and sodium laurel sulfate.
Nourishing hair styling essentials—texturizing creams, detangling sprays, curl treatments, salt sprays for gorgeous beachy texture, volumizing foams, and more—make a huge difference in the way hair of any texture looks and feels. The right tools are critical too, from blow dryers and straighteners to curling irons—not to mention brushes, combs, and even the perfect hair towel. There are many routes to shiny, soft, effortless hair, and these hair styling treatments are a brilliant, easy way to create the look you want in minutes.
