So I recently did the impossible, and found my dream stylist. My hair is extremely curly, frizzy and thick — which makes it incredibly difficult to cut or style, especially with the Midwest humidity. I have never had a stylist who can actually tame my hair into the Pinterest image that I have used for inspiration. My latest endeavor to the salon lead me to Keeley, my hair fairy godmother.
The only negative thing about having this gem in my life is the fact that she introduced me to Bumble and bumble products. I am a total doormat and if someone puts me on the spot and says “here buy this,” I will. These products, albeit expensive (expect to blow the majority of a part-time paycheck on them), have completely transformed my hair and made it simple to get the styles that I wanted. I’m definitely sipping the Bumble and bumble Kool-Aid and will forever be a part of the cult following. I thought I’d share in case some of you lovelies have the same difficulties I have with styling and maintaining my healthy hair.
Bumble and bumble Quenching Shampoo // $31
I know, I know, $31 is steep for a shampoo, but it completely eliminates all of the dryness that I used to experience with my previous drugstore shampoo. It smells amazing, is gentle and restorative enough to use daily and you will find yourself asking strangers to feel how soft your hair is. Also, I saved some cash because Keeley informed me that the shampoo is more essential when compared to the conditioner, which essentially just offers a wax coat. Save the money and just grab a drugstore conditioner, I use Aussie Total Miracle 7-in-1 ($3.59) and it’s fantastic.
Bumble and bumble Hairdresser’s Invisible Oil Primer // $27
Sephora describes this product as a “pre-styler that protects, conditions, and eases styling for dry, brittle, or coarse hair.” I mist this onto my hair and run it through to the ends before blow drying, straightening or curling my tresses. It makes it hold the style, while keeping the moisture in my hair and prevents split ends. I’ve turned friends and family on to this product and they have also made it a must-have in their styling routine.
Bumble and bumble Surf Infusion Spray // $29
What is summer without sexy beach waves? This new spray is similar to Bb’s classic Surf Spray, but infuses oils to maintain softness and shine while adding texture. I love spraying this while styling with a curling wand, or even on my natural curls while my hair is still damp. As it air dries it helps maintain the shape of the curls and adds volume. Just one tip! Make sure to shake the product before using it since the oil does separate and floats on the surface of the spray.
All Bumble and bumble products are available online at their website, at Sephora or other higher-end retailers. You can also check your local salon to see if they carry Bumble and bumble products.
