At the beginning of every school year, I always set aside a few dollars for one back-to-school product that I think will make my early mornings easier. This term, I am lucky enough (ha, not) to have 8:30am lectures on Mondays and Thursdays. This means that I am up by 6am, and have to be out the door by 7:30am. With breakfast being a priority and crawling back into bed a regular occurrence, the allotted time for my hair sometimes gets cut short, which can lead to some less-than-attractive hair days. And then I tried this new Bumble and Bumble product.
- Formulated with a blend of two lightweight polymers to improve texture
- Plant-based conditioning blend to hydrate hair and help it dry smoothly
- Contains UVA and UVB filters to help protect hair against the damaging effects of heat and sun exposure
- Gives the air (ha, so punny) of an air style without having to deal with flyaway strands or frizziness
In the mornings, I just wake up, hop in the shower to give my hair a quick wash, and then throw my hair up in a towel. By the time I’m done eating breakfast my hair is towel-dried, and I just work this cream through my hair, scrunch, and I am good to go. If the whole scrunched look isn’t for you, you can also twist your hair to get that nice, soft loose curls look, which I have been sporting the past week. It’s funny because so many people at university have complimented my hair and asked what I did to get it to look the way it does. They seem to think I spent ages on it, when really, I spent the minute of working this little miracle hair cream though my hair and then giving my hair a final once over of air drying if I have the time. Also, this hair cream can be layered with other stylers, so you can get the benefits of this cream along with those of other products if you’re looking to show your hair a little more TLC.
What is really nice about this product is that it is super hydrating and thin. I was worried at first that I wouldn’t use enough for the product to work, but that it would be thick and wouldn’t go through my hair easily. Wrong and wrong. You only need to use a pea-sized amount of this cream in your hair, so just work from the roots to the ends, and it is super thin and smooth so it won’t get stuck partway and make hair look greasy in places.
What I love about Bumble and Bumble products, besides how wonderful they are on my hair, is that the majority of them come in multiple sizes. Typically, if you want to try a new shampoo, you have to purchase a full-size bottle, which is great if it turns out you like it, but if you don’t, then you’re stuck with a 99% full bottle of shampoo that lives in your cupboard for years until it finally gets tossed in a clean out. With Bumble and Bumble products though, they are sold in at least two sizes, one for the people who know the products will work for them, and the other that are perfect for trying out various products to find the one that works best for you. These smaller sizes are also so easy to travel with because they fall well below the airport’s carry-on liquid maximum of 100mL. In some cases, these smaller sizes even come in little bundles of three, so you can sample three products from a range for the same amount as a full-size container of shampoo. Yet another reason why I love the Bumble and Bumble brand.
Have you tried this out before??? What did you think???
