My thoughts on the Christophe Robin Luscious Curl Cream with Flaxseed Oil and when and how to use curl cream.
For styling after washing
Use a small amount of the curl cream on freshly washed hair comb or scrunch in to the hair before styling and drying. I found this really nourishing and not too heavy for my hair. It is on the pricier end of the market but having said that I used a small pea sized amount and emulsified it between my hands before applying with praying hands. I made the mistake of using far too much the first time and I could feel it on my hair so less is definitely more and works much better. The Texture is non-greasy and not sticky it seems to leave no residue and feels like a creamy texture.
I also use a small dot of curl cream on my hand with some water for a light touch up and refresh the next day. It is so light my curls do not feel weighed down at all but instead softly moisturised. You can even use a small bit on dry hair for touch-ups.
Curly soft definition with shine. Remember you only need a small amount pea sized and emulsify in between your hands to go further. My hair has felt soft and moisturised particulary throughout the ends of my hair where they normally start to feel dry after a few days. This cream can go along way.
What hair is the curl cream suitable for?
The Curl cream is suitable for all curl types from wavy to coils curls. It is Light enough for wavy hair and creamy enough for more coarse curly hair. The Christophe Robin Luscious Curl Cream with Flaxseed Oil is suitable for all curls types from wavy hair 2a to a coil of 3c.
Flax seed oil boosts nutrition and restores the elasticity helping to bring curl to thier optimum.
- Flaxseed oil provides nutrition for hair follicles because it’s rich in fatty acids which in turn boosts both hair length and thickness. Omega-3 fatty acids nourish hair follicles for healthy hair growth. without these fatty acids it can result in dry, brittle hair. The Omega is also anti-inflammatory and can help with hair loss and other scalp conditions.
- Flaxseed oil is rich in protein and selenium, for promoting grout and shiny hair.
- It also contains vitamin E which provides nourishment for hair follicles and moisturizes the hair strands.

My thoughts on the anti-Frizz Rescue Milk with Shea Butter and When to use the frizz cream
Anti-Frizz Rescue Milk with Shea Butter come sin a handy pump bottle. There is no smell as such as it contains non perfume so is brilliant for people who find fragrance an issue. It is a smooth consistency and easy to use it is not sticky and is residue free. I would not use this with the curl cream as it has similar properties.
When to use the frizz cream.
You can use the frizz milk everyday on damp hair or wet hair. I would use it instead of a leave in conditioner or curl cream for added moisture and hydration. Style as usual.
For dry hair touch ups.
You can also use it for touching up on dry hair. You can pop a bit in your hands with a little bit of water to make it go further and smooth using praying hands over your hair.
The frizz rescue milk is suitable for
All hair types curly and straight especially for anyone who experiences frizz. This is perfect for anyone doing the curly girl method as the products are all natural.
