Let’s just have a talk about the double edged sword that is freshly washed hair. On the one hand it feels awesome. It’s all swishy and you just want to shake it around like you’re in a shampoo advert. But then there’s the bad side to just blow-dried locks: the fluffiness, the inability to stay put in the position you wish it to lie in, it’s ability to attract static. Personally I’m a bit fan of second day hair for the fact that it turns all the aforementioned on their head.

Second day hair lovers rejoice for I have found the product that makes tomorrow’s hair achievable today – Bumble and Bumble Bb Texture Hair (Un)Dressing Creme. Beware – you need the tiniest amount of this made to mess lotion to make hair obey orders. Apply when damp, run through the ends being careful not to deposit too much through the roots then blow-dry for hair with hold and not a stray or fluff in sight. It gives hair that grit, texture and lived in look that only usually occurs come the morning after hair wash day. Of course there are your Oribe Dry Texturising Sprays and the rest that do a similar job of dirtying things up, but in a way it’s quite nice to get your styling slot in post-wash, be done and not have to worry about top-up spritzes during the day.

Though we must not forgot that making Day 2 hair Day 1, makes Day 2 hair actually Day 3. Time to grab the dry shampoo…

    I hate just washed hair! I end up putting off washing my hair because I just can’t deal with managing it, so I feel I need to try this!! x


  • thebeautymist

    I really want to try some stuff from Bumble and Bumble:) x

    I’ve never tried this; I swear by their Semisumo, which I love for adding a bit of texture to my hair as well as some shine! :)

    I love Bumble and Bumble products, but have yet to try this. It sounds like it would give some texture and definition to my fine, flyaway hair!

    This sounds really nice, I definitely need to try some Bumble and Bumble products.


  • Amanda

    Your last comment is exactly why I hardly ever put products like this in my hair. I loooove the look but kind of resent roughing it up so quickly because I’m lazy and don’t want to wash it quickly!

  • Rachel Elizabeth

    Ooo, may have to try this! I love the feel of freshly washed hair but its so flat and uninspiring and it never does what I want!

  • http://www.latenightnonsense.com/ Adrienne

    I have this and swear by it. Although, sometimes I like to let my hair have that first day wash look on the weekends when I’m not doing anything so I don’t have to be back with a towel around my head all too quickly! xo

    I lurve this stuff.. let’s get real, Bumble and Bumble has never done me wrong. I used this today and air dried/diffused hair for the undone-yet-done model hair look (here’s to hoping…lol)

  • roshkud

    Sounds great, I love clean hair but when I was my hair before an occasion I end up with fluffy hair that refuses to be styled, this would be perfect for those times

  • Bridie

    Love, love, love this post! I’m never satisfied when my hair’s first washed, the second day is always much less fluffy and more controllable. I still need to indulge in a Bumble and Bumble product, I’ve heard so much about the sprays and this also sounds amazing! x

    I always struggle with my non-voluminous first hair day and this product sounds very well to me. I will probably give it a go now that Bumble and Bumble is selling France!
    Thanks for the sharing Anna :)

  • Iso Bean

    Sounds like a great product, especially for my super fine flat hair!

  • http://www.vibrantbeautyblog.com/ Jennifer Monforton

    I have this as well and love the texture it gives! I sometimes work a small amount into dry hair and the result is great! xo

  • Nina A

    I’ve had my eye on this for a while, I used to have really long hair and didn’t mind the freshly washed look but now I have a long bob and I hate the smooth hair look with it. Will need to pop to Boots and see if I can wrangle a mini tester from Bumble & Bumble!

  • Gillian

    I’m definitely going to give this a go. My hair is so thin and I’m always on the hunt for good texturising products


  • http://skinsweet.blogspot.co.uk/ Jade

    Great tip, I really want to try some products from Bumble & Bumble and this has just gone on my wishlist. Definitely agree about Day 2 hair, I suffer from fly aways in a big way, can’t seem to keep my hair down!
