RY: Can you please tell us a little about your role at Christophe Robin and your experience in the haircare industry?
MM: I’ve been in partner with the brand Christophe Robin now for almost five years. I am the National Educator for Australia and NZ, and do a lot of travel representing Christophe when he’s not in Australia. As I’ve been in the haircare industry for many years now, I’ve seen a lot of brands come and go. Christophe Robin is unique, as he is committed to using innovative ingredients with powerful natural properties, that really work to improve the overall health and condition of the scalp and hair.
RY: What are your best at-home maintenance tips for coloured hair?
MM: My top secret for looking after coloured hair at home is to work with the seasons to protect the colour and each individual strand. In summer, I love the Christophe Robin Moisturising Hair Oil with Lavender as my pre-shampoo treatment or out-and-about treatment, as it has SPF 6 and five natural oils that hydrate and protect the hair. I always shampoo with the Christophe Robin Cleansing Mask with Lemon when I’m on holidays, as it’s so gentle and restores the elasticity with magic St. John’s Wort. It also cleanses the scalp with active lemon zest.
