Then your beauty sleep is about to get so much better with Christophe Robin's new Night Treatments.
Did you know that a good night's sleep can work wonders for our hair, too? During the night, our hair and skin cells renew themselves, and the release of the sleep hormone melatonin allows our hair to regenerate. This makes the nighttime routine essential for nourishing and strengthening damaged hair.
What are the best overnight products for hair thats damaged, over-processed or dry?
Christophe Robin's Night Recovery Cream with White Lotus Flower is perfect for fine to medium-damaged hair, while the Night Recovery Monoi Oil with White Lotus Flower is tailored for medium to thick, damaged hair. Each treatment is specially formulated to meet the specific needs of your hair type with a perfect blend of active ingredients, soothing textures, and a delicious fragrance of French lavender, Cedarwood, White Orchid and Tahitian monoi.
Which overnight treatments are suitable for coloured hair?
Christophe Robin's Night Treatments are suitable for all hair types, including coloured, bleached and fragile hair. They are formulated with gentle, nourishing ingredients that help protect and strengthen the hair. So whether you're looking to repair damage, prevent breakage, or enhance your hair's natural shine and softness, these luxurious weekly treatments have got you covered.
What active ingredients should we be looking out for?
If you are into analysing the formulas of your favourite haircare products, you've probably noticed that there are more and more ingredients in them that you're already familiar with via your must-have face moisturiser or serums. Hyaluronic acid, wheat proteins, zinc, magnesium, omegas, even niacinamide .... these ingredients are starting to pop up in haircare as science-backed solutions that treat your scalp, hair shaft, roots with the same TLC as the skin on your face.
Christophe Robin's philosophy on haircare has always been based on modern science, working alongside an Italian lab specialising in developing skincare formulas since launching his namesake brand in 1999. The Night Treatments are no different, infused with powerful natural ingredients selected to deliver next-level results to damaged hair:
White Lotus Flower: Rich in antioxidants and minerals, White Lotus Flower helps soothe and hydrate the scalp while promoting healthy hair growth.
Shea Butter: A natural emollient, Shea Butter is rich in vitamins and fatty acids that moisturize and nourish the hair, leaving it soft and shiny.
- African hibiscus flower: Enhances sleekness and shine, leaving hair with a visible vitality
- Monoi: Leaves the hair fibre feeling restored and intensely conditioned
- Cedarwood: Relaxing and deeply nourishing
OK so I'm sold on the idea of a night mask, how do I apply these magical treatments?
The process is straightforward, start by simply brushing out your hair before jumping into bed. We recommend using a boar bristle brush like Ibiza's GL7 paddle brush or OC series for gentle detangling and extra polish. Take note: boar bristles do not like any oils other than those naturally produced by your scalp so please use a wide-toothed comb or shower brush if you want to brush through your Night Recovery Treatments after detangling. (what happens when boar bristles meet oil is they will start to degenerate - read our blog about brushes here)

For fine to medium hair, you're reaching for Christophe's Night Recovery Cream. Luxurious but light, this cream cocoons your hair in nourishment.
Begin to apply the cream to mid-lengths and ends, working up towards the crown. Wrap your hair into a simple chignon, braid or hair towel to protect your bedlinen and jump into bed. When you wake up, shampoo out and comb through with a light conditioner using a shower brush that won't damage your newly revived locks.
This powerful cream optimises hair strength from within so dry, weakened lengths feel fortified and more resistant to daily damage. Hair will feel restored, and beautifully supple with a noticeable body and bounce.

"My fine, coloured hair is desert-dry and fried after a summer of sunshine, salty swims and daily washing. I used Christophe's new cream on post-swim hair and left it overnight. After shampooing the cream the next morning, my hair felt soo much better - smooth, luscious and just that little bit thicker. I've fallen in love hard with this one!" Karina, GM (MCM Beauty)
For medium to thick hair, the Monoi oil will be your go-to treatment.
Be sure you've warmed it gently beforehand to liquefy the oil ready for application. Brush your hair thoroughly. Pour a small amount into your palms, and smooth it evenly throughout the lengths and mid-lengths, pressing any leftover oil onto the baby hairs around your hairline. Hop into bed, using a hair turban or towel to protect your pillow from the treatment. When you're ready for the results to be revealed, thoroughly shampoo out the treatment in the shower. Frizz is tamed, lengths will feel deeply nourished, smooth and glossy.
P.S. If you were a fan of the iconic Lavender Oil treatment created in 1999 by Christophe Robin, you'll love the reformulated and perfected version with new, super-effective active ingredients and a cleaner formula.
Don't just take our word for it - the press is already clamouring to confirm the claims including the gorgeous Sherine and Sarah from Gloss.etc (read their review below or online here) while Adore Beauty's Jasmine Riley name-checks the range as one of the top picks for a good nights rest here.
