The supermodel hair essential that repairs damaged strands, protects color, and preserves shine.

DISCOVERED

Since the ’80s, supermodels have trusted French colorist Christophe Robin with their ever-changing million-dollar locks. His backstory goes something like this: At age 17, Robin was on set for a shoot with Stephanie Seymour when a hair emergency occurred—her hair was just not shiny. Robin sprung into action and whipped up a peroxide-free golden shade. Seymour, impressed with her instantly glossy tresses, began telling all her model friends (think: Kristen McMenamy, Elle Macpherson, and Claudia Schiffer) about Robin. And because these beauties sometimes had to adjust their color multiple times in one month, Robin knew they needed a special potion to keep their manes intact. By (very) popular request, he unveiled one of his first products, the Moisturizing Hair Oil with Lavender, in 1999. 


A supermodel’s essential hair companion, the balmy-textured treatment contains lavender, wheat germ, and olive oil to restore elasticity, while SPF6 protects colored strands from environmental factors. Consider it a cure-all whether you want to safeguard your mane from the sun, need a moisture boost, or fancy a heat protector before your blowout.

TESTED

“I love this oil treatment. I notice the biggest difference in dry hair. You can leave it in for about twenty minutes and wash it out, or sleep it in and let it soak.”—Mara Roszak, hairstylist

“This is amazing for processed hair and is really good for bleached blondes.”—Cervando Maldonado, hairstylist

“You only need a tiny, tiny amount of this. I put it in dry and use it as a treatment. It’s great for blonde hair that’s very overprocessed because it delivers really natural, healthy strands.” —Leanne Citrone, hairstylist
