New in my hair routine: Bumble and bumble's Tonic Lotion
Friday, November 15, 2013
I’d been eyeing it for a while and while I was at BeautyQueen in Gent for my dear friend Elfi’s book launch (more about her book later on!), I finally caved in and bought it. I’m talking Bumble and bumble’s Tonic Lotion. Apparently used during the fashion weeks to revive the models’ hair in between shows.. It’s become one of the better known Bumble&Bumble products. After reading many raving reviews for various reasons & having read the full ingredients list, I was ready to welcome this fancy spritz into my haircare routine. My first impressions..? I was totes right to buy it!
I was mainly looking for a spray that would tackle my scalp sensitivity during stressy times.. Whenever work gets busy, or I start stressing, I feel a change in my scalp’s condition. It can get quite itchy out of nowhere.. Which is never nice. Bumble and bumble’s Tonic Lotion contains a blend of powerful oils and extracts that’ll tackle those issues and prime your hair for styling. Main active ingredients are Tea Tree Leaf oil (antiseptic properties), Peppermint Leaf extract (stimulates circulation & regulates oil production), Rosemary Leaf Extract (antimicrobial & conditioning benefits) and Nettle extract (tones & conditions scalp). I’ve noticed that whenever I use it in the morning my scalp indeed feels far less itchy! I was afraid the oils and extracts would make my roots greasy, but no such thing. The trick is to make sure the product really touches your scalp, I massage it in after spritzing. I’m happily using this spray daily now and I hope to see some other benefits as well. Perhaps this ‘ll also make my hair grow faster? I’ll keep you posted..
