If there’s an appropriate time to pack light, it’s definitely spring break — and it’s definitely almost here. As you begin imagining those beach days, road trips, and whatever else might be in store, you might also want to spare a thought for your beauty routine. I recently learned that during the 19th
Century, vinegar became a beauty elixir,” says Christophe. “It’s antiseptic, purifying, soothing, protective, and toning.” Bottle botanical vinegars with additional, beautifying ingredients, and you get his range of Hair Finish Lotions.  
The hair lotions are Christophe’s contribution to what he calls the “nude hair trend.” By this, he’s referring to hair that looks healthy, but not overly polished — perfect for any spring break situation you may encounter. And while his creations are definitely the key to chic travel hair, their true powers lie in their multitasking abilities. From stealth styling tips to nail strengthening wisdom (say what?!), here are six cool tricks to getting the most out of this single product.  
No dry shampoo? No problem. Christophe’s hair lotions can be applied to dry hair between washes to refresh your roots and help detangle the hair. The pretty scents don’t hurt, either — especially when it comes to stretching the time between washes. “You can apply these to the roots of your hair on the second or third day after washing for a booster effect,” he advises. “They neutralize excess sebum and maintain the freshness of the hair.” For this, you can thank the properties of botanical vinegars, which are naturally rich in amino acids, vitamins, and antioxidants. Best of all, you can pick the formulation that’s best suited to your specific hair type. The Regenerating Hair Lotion works best for normal to dry hair, the Purifying version is designed for oily scalps, and the Brightening bottle calls your name if you’ve got color-treated or blonde strands. 
Trick #2: Color Play
Christophe knows hair color, so it makes total sense that his hair lotions contain a shade-sealing secret. If you want your dye job to last longer, he recommends using this after rinsing to fix the pigments. “When hair is color treated, its scales open to draw out the natural pigments and replace them with artificial ones,” he says. The vinegar in the hair lotion is the key to sealing these microscopic scales (AKA the cuticle) and returning the hair to its naturally acidic pH. Its purifying properties also keep hair from getting weighed down with sebum, which means less frequent shampoos that might strip your new shade. Likewise, you’ll want to keep one of these around to maintain highlights or bleached hair over break. “In the case of bleach or highlighting, the hair’s scales are opened to remove the pigments, which are not replaced,” he says. “This can make hair fragile and porous. The hair lotion will seal the scales and lock the treatment inside each strand.”
Who knew that vinegar was the secret ingredient to born-with-it brilliance? “The acid levels in vinegar are close to those naturally present in the hair,” explains Christophe. The cool result is that the lotion will close your hair’s cuticles, both protecting the internal structure of each individual strand and reflecting the light. Note: you won’t be seeing the kind of shampoo-commercial sleekness that silicone-based hair products impart, but the vinegar blend works wonders if you’re looking for subtle, healthy shine. “The brilliance is very natural,” he says. Works for us!
