Few things are as frustrating as dry, stringy strands, especially in winter. As if mother nature hasn’t bestowed enough gifts on us with her wind, rain, snow, and sleet, come winter, we’re also privied to some pretty appalling hair concerns, like frizz, flyaways, and severely dehydrated locks.
As beauty oils took our complexions to new dimensions, hair oils are about to revamp our frumpy winter ‘dos. Bumble and Bumble’s Hairdresser’s Invisible Oil collection is exactly what my parched strands have been yearning for. Comprised of four products: -Shampoo, Conditioner, Primer, and actual Oil – the Hairdresser’s Invisible Oil range is a lightweight, silky combination of six oils that clean, condition, and reinvigorate the hair, from roots to ends.
Let’s start from the beginning: Every gorgeous head of hair needs a good cleanse, and Bumble and Bumble’s Hairdesser’s Invisible Oil Shampoo ($31) is a game changer. The pleasantly sweet-scented sulfate-free formula washes the scalp and hair with a full-bodied lather that is equally parts creamy and gentle. Hair is left cleansed, but not stripped, and color is unaffected. Next up is the Hairdresser’s Invisible Oil Conditioner (34). Like the shampoo, this conditioner is chock-full of oils, but it doesn’t leave hair the slightest bit heavy or greasy. Instead, after a mere two minutes applied from ponytail to ends, a quick rinse will unearth hair that is soft, smooth, and, the best part, easy to comb!
While you can certainly end your haircare there, I did not. Sure, the shampoo and conditioner alone are certainly effective enough to leave my coiff looking rejuvenated and rehydrated, but the Hairdresser’s Invisible Oil Primer ($26) is just the multitasking product that has “winter wild weather” written all over it. While the primer is meant to protect hair against hot tool use, I’m not one for glamming it up with a blowdryer or flat iron on the daily. I prefer to wash and dry the au naturel way, so this Primer was a fabulous addition to my simple morning hair routine. A few mists post shower and my hair was completely tangle-free. I also found that the Primer worked as an awesome midday detangler and pick-me-up on dry hair. A couple of sprays to my ends, a quick tousle of the tresses, and it was as if any windy flyaways or rainy day hair emergencies were just a problem of the past.
Finally, the Hairdresser’s Invisible Hair Oil ($39), a must for every woman who wants frizz-free hair. This oil is super lightweight, , aids in detangling, and strengthens the hair shaft against breakage. While all of the products contain UVA/ UVB filters and heat styling protection, and they are all meant to be “feather-light,” the hair oil is the one that impressed me the most. How can an oil actually deter heat and not weigh down the entire mane? Well, Bumble and Bumble has created the lightest of light oils that absorbs almost the moment it’s applied to hair, hence the “invisible.” And yet, my hair was left SO soft-to-the-touch and shiny-to-the-eye, I was actually stopped on the street by a woman who asked what products I use in my hair… I mean, is there a better compliment… ever?!
There you have it: Your new winter haircare system. In fact, let it take you into spring and summer, too. With hair this healthy, why not?
