Even though every single hairdresser I’ve ever visited has warned me about the damage heat styling does to hair (coupled with highlights) I can’t shake my dryer and straightener habit. Don’t get me wrong, I would love to rock bedhead waves with the best of them, but if I leave my hair to dry on its own, I’m left with a weird, fuzzy mess thats messy in some spots, wavy in others, and sits at odd angles. It’s just not ideal really, so, until I pluck up the courage to go for a Brazilian Blowout, I’m stuck styling my hair every morning.
Thankfully though, Bumble & Bumble has been making the process so much easier since I’ve been using their Tonic Lotion Primer. I’m a big fan of the brand’s Primers in general, and I’ve been addicted to the Hairdresser’s Oil one for about 18 months, and this has been a new addition to my routine that I’m absolutely loving! After washing and conditioning my hair as normal, I squeeze out excess water with a towel, then spray the Tonic over my lengths and ends (with a small amount on my front layers that can feel a little dry). I then comb my hair through, add a little styling cream and get to blow drying and straightening the ends as normal.
The formula feels lightweight, and never weighs down my hair. Instead, the formula, which is rich in herbs, vitamins & Tea Tree Oil which work to hydrate dried out ends and make hair look shiny and feel super soft. I love the tingle that the Tea Tree Oil gives, and it makes hair smell so fresh and clean! It’s also great if you suffer with scalp issues – it really cares for the skin and prevents flakes or dryness!
Bumble and Bumble Tonic Lotion is priced at £17.50 and is available here.
