Here are ten iconic French hair products French women swear by. If there’s anyone who nails the effortless look, it’s definitely the French! For them, hair tends to be natural, and a little bit undone and messy — think of the “I literally just woke up like this” approach. French women always lead the way when it comes to chic, simple hairstyles that look like they haven’t taken any time at all. They accept and embrace their natural hair texture and know exactly how to bring the best out of it.

But if French-girl hair is low maintenance when it comes to styling, there are certain shampoos, scrubs, and other hair care products made in France that French women use in order to keep their hair looking healthy, fresh, and all-around effortlessly stylish. From oils to dry shampoos and even texture sprays, being French, I’ve put together a list of some of the very best French hair care products for fine, curly, dry, silver hair, and more. Read more to discover the best French haircare products which worthy of a spot in your vanity.

Christophe Robin Cleansing Purifying Scrub with Sea Salt

Christophe Robin’s cleaning purifying scrub is a detoxifying shampoo enriched with sea salt —a natural exfoliant— that eliminates impurities and promotes blood circulation. It’s the ideal detox treatment to remove product buildup and rebalance sensitive or oily scalps. This cleansing purifying scrub does wondrous things to my hair and scalp: it’s clean, shiny, full of body, and does not become limp and oily the next day. It does really help to shampoo less frequently.

Which hair types? 

For sensitive or oily scalps, and anyone with any scalp concerns such as dandruff or excess oil, or those searching for a detox treatment.

Leonor Greyl Paris Crème Moelle de Bambou Nourishing Shampoo

Crème Moelle de Bambou is a nourishing nonlathering shampoo that cleanses, regenerates, and conditions the hair. I love this shampoo! Each time I use this shampoo my hair is very soft, silky, and shiny without having to use any serum or conditioner afterward. This crème seems to give slightly more volume to my hair and the smell is just divine. It’s the perfect shampoo you can use daily without the risk of drying out the hair.

Which hair types? 

For long, dry, thick, or frizzy hair.

Kérastase Blond Absolu Hydrating Illuminating Shampoo

Enriched with hyaluronic acid and Edelweiss flower, Kérastase Blond Absolu shampoo intensely hydrates and removes impurities to illuminate lightened blonde or grey hair. To neutralize brassiness and yellow tones of lightened, cool-blonde, bleached, or grey hair, I’ll recommend the color-correcting shampoo Kérastase Blond Absolu Anti-Brass Purple shampoo in the same range. Kérastase Blond Absolu is definitely the best in professional-level blonde color care!

Which hair types? 

For cool-blonde, bleached, or grey hair.

Klorane Dry Shampoo With Oat Milk

Formulated with organically harvested Oat milk, to soothe and protect hair and scalp, this ultra-gentle, plant-based dry shampoo quickly absorbs oil, dirt, and odors leaving hair clean, refreshed, and full of texture and volume. Ultra-fine powders blend invisibly into hair with no chalky residue. Klorane dry shampoo with oat milk is definitely one of the iconic French hair products that I just adore! The smell is light enough to not be distracting and seems to dissipate pretty quickly. It really clean my hair and kept my style looking fresh for days!

Which hair types? 

Perfect for all hair types, even the most sensitive scalp.

Christophe Robin Volumizing Conditioner with Rose Extracts

Christophe Robin Volumizing conditioner nourishes without weighing hair down. The formula is enriched with rose water and baobab extract to gently restore volume and softness. This is basically one of my favorite volumizing conditioners! I use it in combination with the Christophe Robin Delicate Volumizing Shampoo with Rose Extracts. It reduces frizz and smooths my hair whilst adding the much-needed volume, as my hair is quite fine and straight. Also, the rose scent is lovely and not synthetic.

Which hair types? 

Ideal for fine hair types.

Klorane 3-in-1 Mask with Organic Cupuau Butter

Klorane Mask with organic Cupuau butter is a multi-use hair mask that deeply nourishes, restores, and tames hair without weighing it down. It can be used as traditional in-shower treatment, an overnight mask as a leave-in cream to mend the driest hair. I really love this hair mask! The smell is just fabulous, and it makes my hair so soft and without weighing it down.

Which hair types? 

Ideal for those with very dry, damaged, or wavy, curly, and natural hair.

Leonor Greyl Paris Sérum de Soie Sublimateur Nourishing Hair Serum

The Sérum de Soie Sublimateur is a daily-use styling serum that detangles, prevents frizz, protects, and nourishes the hair. I love this hair product! I’ve searched for a long time for a hair product like this one that could actually nourish my hair without weighing it down and add shine without silicone. It gives some hold, lift, texture, and shine without weighing down or drying out my fine hair.

Which hair types? 

For all hair types, even fine hair.

L’Huile de Leonor Greyl

L’huile de Leonor Greyl is a protective, beautifying hair treatment with a luxurious blend of natural oils —organic jojoba, coconut, sunflower seed, and sesame seed oils— that detangles, protects, and restores damaged strands and ends.

I’ve been using this for many years and it’s always been my go-to product for my hair. I use it as a pre-shampoo treatment by leaving it in for a half-hour before shampooing as usual. Not only does this oil get your hair soft and shiny right after but it somehow imparts volume as well! So even fine hair like mine will get a boost from this oil. Finally, this hair treatment is also good protection from the drying and damaging effects of sun, saltwater, and chlorine.

Which hair types? 

For dry, over-processed hair.

Christophe Robin Instant Volumizing Mist with Rosewater

Christophe Robin Instant Volumizing mist protects color, nourishes the hair, and provides body and volume without drying out the hair —the alcohol-free formula is composed of 96% rose water. I love this hair mist! If you want a more natural feel to hair but still want volume, I would recommend this product. It doesn’t make my hair feel sticky or greasy. It works like a salt spray, but without the drying effect and the rose’s smell is absolutely fabulous.

Which hair types? 

Ideal for fine hair types.

Diptyque Eau Rose Hair Mist

I love Diptyque’s hair mists! They leave a light and delicately scented veil of fragrance on the hair. Enriched with nourishing, protective camellia oil, this hair mist both perfumes and beautifies the hair. Each summer, I swap my favorite eau de parfum for one of these Diptyque hair mists. My favorite is the Ilio hair mist which was in limited edition last summer, I hope Diptyque will relaunch it this summer!
