Bangs follow up – then I need to talk about something other than hair!

Sheesh. I am realizing that all I’ve talked about the past few posts is hair and I don’t want to come off as a one trick pony. I did put a little teaser into my last post and I got a comment asking me to divulge my strategy for wearing moisturizer whilst having bangs and not letting them look greasy from rubbing against the lotion all day.

The first most important thing is to make sure you put your moisturizer on as soon as you get out of the shower – allowing for maximum time to absorb before you style da bangs.  I am alllllways in a rush so for me there is usually only a 10 minute drying time between shower and styling.

From there I give my bangs a good blow dry – I blow them up, then side to side, then use my flat brush to give them a little volume by slightly curling the brush under my bags while I blow dry. I finish with a dry hairspray (Paul Mitchell right now – my sister turned me onto it and it’s very light).

Now – the trick is, when you work all day and plan to go out but you think your bangs look kinda EH here’s a good tip. Take a flat brush, sprinkle it with baby powder and run it through your bangs. You will be amazed at how great they look! This works well for the crown too for extra body.  Sometimes this makes your hair a little staticky so I do still finish with a dry hair spray to get rid of any static clingers. I also hear that you can actually run a dryer sheet over your hair to get rid of static but I’ve yet to try this. It makes logical sense though. I will keep you posted if I do attempt to prove / disprove this myth.

There is also a Bumble and Bumble product that is supposed to be amazing.  I haven’t gotten it yet but it’s definitely on the list. Its Bumble and Bumble Hair powder.  They make it in a few different shades to match up with your color. This seems to be a genius idea to me.  It would help out in a pinch in the morning if you oversleep and don’t have time to wash your hair. It also claims to help with volumizing fine hair and aiding those with oily hair. Its also good if you overdo it on product and want to get your hair back to square one and not have it look greasy or too weighted down.

I’ve used several Bumble and Bumble products and been happy with them all so I am sure this one will not disappoint!  Given that I decided to continue on the path with bangs I do think this would be a good investment. My husband may leave me if I spend any more $$ this month on products or things that he would consider frivolous and I would consider a necessity.  Unfortunately this will have to wait until February when I can build the case to purchase a few new products…. WILL I MAKE IT THAT LONG? Happy marriage or gorgeous tresses? Ahh good wifey wins for today.
