Review: This is an awesome product! To tell you the truth, I have no idea what it's supposed to do...BUT, it gives me what I want with my hair, soft and held. :)
According to Sephora.com, this is the description: This product lubricates, detangles, and gradually strengthens the hair. It gives hair soft, natural movement, light structure, and just the right base for a blowout.
Let me tell you my problem first - my hair is pretty fine and wavy, and nothing really holds on it. I would try to flat iron my hair, but after a few hours, my hair would return to having a wave. I don't like to use a lot of products in my hair because my scalp is pretty sensitive.
In searching for the solution and conclusion - I noticed that whenever I come out of the salon, my hair will keep its shape. How?! I was intrigued. I paid special attention to what my stylist used next time. It turns out that he used about 5 products on my hair...well, THAT's not going to work for my daily routine. So I did what I do best...guess it. I picked the one product I remembered and know where to find and went with it: Bumble and bumble Styling Lotion. I went to Sephora and bought the 2oz size to try it out first. The first time I tried it, I was convinced. My hair came out soft and it held its straightness throughout the day. It's not a hairspray or a gel, so it allows my hair to move without the much disliked 'crunch'. I went to buy the 8oz size after I finished with the small size. I have been using the product for about one and a half month now and I have not seen any split ends yet (I wash and blow dry my hair every day so I used to get split ends fairly quickly). So to date, I still don't know what a "styling lotion" means, but I know it softens, holds my straight hair style and protects my hair well from my daily blow-drying. That's all I need!
Directions: Spritz and saturate your towel dried hair. I usually stay away from the roots and concentrate on the ends. Blow dry and flat iron as usual. That's it!
Little tip: If you decide to try the 2oz version first, keep the bottle so that you can fill it up when you are traveling.
