In the summer, especially this summer as I am trying to grow my hair out, I try to use heat styling less and less. Blow drying and straightening my hair day after day is not only super damaging to my hair, but can also be time-consuming and not very pleasant on hot days. Letting my hair air dry is obviously the solution, but then I’m left with uneven texture and frizz — not fun. This is why I am so excited about Bumble and bumble’s latest launch, the Don’t Blow It (H)air Styler.
Don’t Blow It is a hair cream meant to enhance your hair’s natural texture as it air dries. Perfect for lazy summer days, or for those who wash their hair at night, the cream is really lightweight, but smooths hair like no other product I’ve ever used. Not only does it give my hair that effortless “I woke up like this” style, it also tames frizz and the UVB and UVA filters protect it from sun exposure (again, perfect for those lazy days in the sun).After washing my hair, I squeeze it dry with a towel, do the usual getting ready thing, then apply a dollop of product, work it through my hair, then comb it to make sure it’s spread evenly. Sometimes I will layer it with my other favourite hair products like this primer or this salt spray. On day two, my hair is a little flat, but with a little dry shampoo and texture spray, it’s perfect.
Have you tried this hair cream? Are you a fan of air drying your hair in the summer (or the rest of the year)?
