This blogger has a new short hairdo. With a new ‘do comes a whole new way of styling. I’ve gone from being a wash and wear girl to being a blow dry and style girl. It also means trying out new styling products. I have been a devotee of Bumble + bumble’s Surf Spray for a long time. This magical elixir is probably the best styling product I have ever used, and trust me I have lost count of the number of products I have used on this mop of hair I have. When I found out that Bumble + bumble had developed a Surf Foam Wash Shampoo and Cream Rinse Conditioner I was ecstatic, and knew just where to go and find out all about it.
I sat down with Amanda Lindberg, Detour stylist extraordinaire and Bumble + bumble product guru to find out how to incorporate the new Surf Foam Wash Shampoo and Cream Rinse Conditioner into my new hair care regimen. What is amazing about this new product is it adds instant body to all types of hair. It just isn’t the body it pumps into all types of hair, but the texture it imparts when combined with Surf Spray. Imagine your hair looking like you’ve gone for a swim in the ocean then let it either air dry or you blow dry it. The finished product comes out as tousled waves full of body with a slightly messy, yet sexy beachy look. I knew I needed to hear more about this product and fast. So Amanda gave me a crash course in Bumble + bumble Surf Foam Wash Shampoo and Cream Rinse Conditioner immediately.
We began with Surf Shampoo. This product is for all types of hair except for those who have had Brazilian blowouts due to the fact that the shampoo is not sulfate free. It is completely safe for colored treated hair due to the inclusion of sea botanicals which do not strip the hair of color. How do you use these awesome new products? Why it is so very simple. With the shampoo, apply to wet hair, work up a good lather and work from roots to ends, rinse, and you are finished. You just shampoo your hair once. Moving on to the Surf Cream Rinse apply it to the middle of your hair and work it through to the ends, rinse and you are done.
While I had time with amazing Amanda, I wanted to know once you were done washing and conditioning your hair with these extraordinary products, how you would go about actually styling your hair. Amanda gave me a beatific smile and said if you have fine and virgin hair you would first start by using the product Prep all over your hair. If your hair is color treated or dry you would use the product Tonic.
She then explained there are two ways to go in terms of styling, either wash and wear or blow dry and style. Like I mentioned at the start of this post, I had been a dedicated wash and wear girl for an eternity that had just reconnected with her blow dryer. So I was quite curious to hear what this slammin’ stylist was going to suggest.
First Amanda talked about how to get the perfect wash and wear ‘do. After applying the proper initial product, whether it be Prep or Tonic all you do is mist Surf Spray all over your hair, either lightly tousle with your fingers or scrunch your hair with your hands, whatever you prefer, and you are done. It’s that simple! With blow dry and style it’s just as simple. All you have to do is work in the Bumble + bumble product Styling Lotion, which sets the style while also acting as a heat protectant to minimize damage from blow drying. After apply the product, style and blow dry your hair as you like it. Again, it is so very simple to have a great looking ‘do!
