Istanbul calling! I am on the waiting lounge of the airport in Vienna, will be in Istanbul within the day and can’t wait! Having lived there for a year it is my favourite city in the world and I am going back for four days break. A good friend is getting married and anyone who has had a wedding in Istanbul knows it is no small matter.
I woke up at 3 am this morning to finish final packing and wash my hair before my 6 am flight. When I tell my friends my hair regime they always assume that it is time consuming. Clearly taking care of your hair when bleary eyed and tired at 3 am is an indication of how simple caring for natural hair can be.
So here is a quick memo about my favourite shampoo of all times. I came
A lot of people prefer to con-wash their hair (that is using a conditioner as opposed to shampoo). I myself sometimes do that in the middle of the week if my hair is dry and I don’t have the time to wash it. However I prefer the actual feel of having freshly shampooed bouncy hair. So before you guys give up on shampoos, read on for my review on the Bumble and Bumble Curl Conscious shampoo. This shampoo is smoothing and curl enhancing. Its free of the crap you find in most shampoos and fully moisturising.
What it does:
This shampoo helps curls take shape right out of the shower so that they look shiny and frizz-free. It’s a must for anyone with naturally (or chemically) curly hair.
-Transglutaminase: Forms curl-enhancing bonds.
-Moisture Complex (Panthenol/Pro-Vitamin B5, Glycerin, Trehalose, Sodium Hyaluranate, Polyquaternium-51): Aids in barrier-formation, moisturizing, and absorption of water.
This is the best shampoo for curly hair I’ve ever found. It smells nice, it’s creamy and can be used daily without weighing my hair down. It helps to define my curls and tames the frizz. You don’t need much of it and your hair is left feeling soft and shiny.
Prior to this shampoo I had seriously considered con-washing my hair even though I did not like the idea of not shampooing. This however has made my hair more manageable and will be indispensible from now on. It is a bit pricy, however you need to use very little of it and its definitely worth it.
US and Paris based curlies can find this in Sephora. The UK chicas will find it in Space NK, one of my favourite stores.
As always, let me know how you find it when you try it. xo
