On the off chance that one credit has come to typify the oft-romanticized French Girl’s excellence, it’s her free enterprise lengths: constantly tousled, never naturally washed. The mystery weapon next to her, we’ve been told? Dry cleanser, an obligation free product Americans  have been known to bring once more from Paname by the trunkful. For reasons unknown, however, legends may have driven us adrift, causing delicate, irritated scalps and even balding en route. “In the event that you use it constantly, it’s a main problem,” says Parisian colorist Christophe Robin, who’s behind Catherine Deneuve, Lea Seydoux, and Ines de la Fressange’s matchless coifs. “It resembles hitting the sack with cosmetics on.”

Rather, Frenchwomen “have better propensities,” he clarifies, that guarantee each (meager) cleanser session endures longer. “They would prefer not to return home to wash their hair consistently,” includes Robin, referring to buildup expelling antibacterial vinegar—purchased at Diptyque or Santa Maria Novella—blended into a bowl of virus water and poured over the head as “an extraordinary French trap.” Follow it up with a conditioning oil treatment, which will leave lengths less covered than conventional conditioners. “French young ladies will search it over their hair, toss their hair into a little bun, and read or exercise with it [in] before [finally] washing it out.”

Obviously, all the arranging on the planet can at present land us in an (oily) squeeze. All things considered, reach not for fancy dry shampoos, whose sweet-smelling fragrances and sparkle improving fixings can additionally add to disturbance, but instead for one sudden wash room staple: preparing soft drink. “It’s an old fixing that works,” Robin says. With respect to his star tip? “Put it onto a decent regular fiber brush, and brush your hair topsy turvy.” No transoceanic flight required.
