French Hair Products Real French Women Can't Live Without



There's something completely enticing about les femmes Françaises. Their regimens  are the antitheses to effortful beauty routines (think fewer drawn-on lips and more fresh-out-of-bed looks). In fact, the French approach to beauté is more of an afterthought—an "I literally just woke up like this" stance. French women have made minimal-effort beauty chic, which is something we can totally get behind and fully appreciate (especially on mornings when dry shampoo is our last hope).

Speaking of dry shampoo, we can't get over the understated, no-frills, perfectly mussed coifs of the French. This means very infrequent hair washing and a complete lack of styling tools. Exhibit A: Christophe Robin told us that French women "accept their natural texture, and they try to bring the best out of it," so straighteners, curling irons, and blowouts are pretty much taboo. We're all about jumping on the healthy, untouched, messy-hair bandwagon, so to that, we say vive la France! Below, we rounded up the top French hair products that local women swear by.
