What a coincidence that when I went for my haircut last Friday, they used Bumble and Bumble and just when I was going to research places nearby that I can purchase their products, Sephora announces their arrival to their stores and website! When I went for my overdue haircut, I left with Bumble and Bumble's styling creme and Rockaholic dry shampoo (look out for this post). Typical me, I told myself I'll buy their shampoo later when I finish my current shampoo. I should've just bought it right there in the salon, because I noticed my bottle was running low when I got home!
Ok, so I have pretty fine straight hair, so my hair was washed with Bumble and Bumble's seaweed line. I can't wait to buy it and use it on a regular basis.
Bumble and Bumble Styling Creme
Retail price: $24.00

I am mostly a wash-n-go kind of person. I like easy (and lazy!). So, I rarely dabble in the complexity of using the right styling products. Hairspray vs. mousse? Cream vs. gel? Yea, I'm not good at that (yet). But in the spirit of becoming a better me, which includes my appearance, I decided with this haircut, I'm going to give my hair the TLC it needs. So, the hairstylist at PR@Partners in DC, Josh, (whom I totally recommend!) suggested that I try Bumble and Bumble's Styling Creme. It works well on people with fine hair; it doesn't leave your hair greasy at all. Now of course, people's hair looks and smells amazing right after a salon visit. The real test is when you have to do it all by yourself!
It's been a few days, and I love the styling creme! I have pretty long days, and I hate it when my hair feels greasy or oily at the end of the day because of product. But, so far, I've gone home feeling like I could even skip a day of hair washing. I only use a dime size of the creme and run my hands through my hair and blowdry. I could work on my blowdrying skills, but for what I need my hair to be to brave the long days, it works pretty well! Bumble and Bumble have been around since the 1970s. I can't believe I've only heard of them now.
I also bought Rockaholic dry shampoo which is to be used for the in-between-hair-washing days, hangover mornings, or post-gym-no-time-to-shower-yet days. My hair is still relatively fresh from a salon, so maintenance has been quite low (wink). When I start getting super lazy with my hair, you'll see a post about this product! haha.
