Hello! I've been really loving having unruly, messy hair lately. Probably due to the fact that my style is also been changing. I've slowly started to become a bit "edgier" in a sense. I mean, I still love my pastels and my floral collared shirts but I've definitely been reaching for a bit more relaxed and simple things. Anyway! I've been absolutely loving Bumble and Bumble products. In fact, I'm not sure how I'm ever going to look back now that I've tried them. Yes, they are pricey, and yes, the bottles are small. However, I think the end result is worth splurging. I got the City Swept finishing spray quite a while ago as a replacement of the surf spray. I've loved the surf spray for a long time and have been through two bottles and honestly, I think the City Swept gives me a better tousled look. On super fancy days I'll actually use both sprays for added separation. What the City Swept finishing spray does is create a wind-blown, messy, texturized look to the hair. I find that when I first spray it, I look a bit like Hermione in her early years. After it calms down, I have so much more volume and oomf to my hair.
A newer purchase is the Bumble and Bumble Pret-a-Powder. Oh my goodness, I didn't think I would love this as much as I do. I've heard complaints about it being too light for brunettes, but I don't find that to be a problem. I don't use this as a dry shampoo, really. I wash my hair every night (yes I know I'm not supposed to) and so greasy hair isn't TOO big of a problem for me. I do however, use a bit of dry shampoo if I'm going to be out at night. I got this as a volume enhancer. I put some at the roots of my hair and scrunch scrunch scrunch until it's messy enough for me! The powder is super fine so it blends in almost instantly.
Along with waving my hair with my hair straightener, these products are my go to now for whenever I do my hair. I know longer have to put up with having flat hair. I seriously recommend trying out these products if you want to look like you just walked through a windy city! I personally love it!
