The ephiphany? A cut at the Bumble and Bumble salon - an occurrence that I wish I had documented more to note into 'Parisian To Be'. Nevertheless, it just didn't feel right to lather, smooth, spritz, and slap on drugstore haircare when I've got a cut this good. Cue 'The Haircare Trial' (otherwise known as where my paycheck went this month).
Let's start with the staples - shampoo and conditioner. My daily rinse is hosted courtesy of the LUSH Squeaky Green Shampoo Bar and the Bumble and bumble Surf Crème Rinse Conditioner. It's still early days with the 'Surf' offering, but the LUSH Shampoo Bar has upped the anty in my shampooing routine. Although I find it a bit fiddly on the application front, I was more than astonished as to it's lathering ability - especially for a bar - and its shine inducing qualities.
You know the deal with me and the 'Sunday night pamper sessions'? And I've said the phrase far too many times... The Bumble and bumble Sunday Shampoo is now a suitable accompaniment to my stash. When you play the helmet game with a bottle of hairspray everyday, you've got to have a clarifying, detox shampoo - ballerina alert.
Since my haircare newbie-ness stands without coaching, I used
For the rest of the styling, some fit in the line up post-shower and others post-dry. My recent favorite? - the Bumble and bumble Thickening Hairspray. Stolen from my mom's drawers (quelle surprise), I've been loving spritzing some through the roots and lengths after my evening wash. When the alarm sounds, my follicles have some extra oomph and look, surprisingly, voluminous. The bottle that I'll always and forever have in my stash is the Bumble and bumble Surf Spray - it's the reason why I dished out the cash on the Surf Conditioner. Beach locks will be mine with a spritz, spritz, spritz.
So if there's anything you've learned from this lock-caring trial, it should be that I'm going through a minor obsession with Bumble and Bumble and that I will have no need to replenish my haircare stocks anytime in the near future, but it only begins when I get my hands on the rest of the Bumble and Bumble range...
