Houston, We Have a Bed Head Problem…

I’ve whittled down my hair care harem to a head-pleasing edit – but there’s a problem. The pinnacle of achieving undone ‘I-swear-I-haven’t-touched-it’ locks with a swoosh load of volume rests on a rather purse-weeping purchase, Bed Head’s After Party Cream. You’ve no doubt heard me go on about the volume-injecting properties of this little can of goodness before. But since my hair has grown, my longer do is just lapping up the stuff and at Rs.900 for the bad boys (I’ve gone through two of these, lets not do the maths), it’s becoming quite the pricey habit. Here’s the justification…

I’ve trialed and spritzed my way through a fair amount of creams with big promises – quite literally – but the Bed Head After Party Cream surpasses them all. No crunch or crisp or sticky tresses, just pumped-up hair with a touch of texture. It makes it a little smoother than usual, which helps the hair to hold when a spot of ‘poofing’ takes place – equaling silky hair in a can. I do three spritzes on dry styled hair around my lengths, focusing more on the ends and the fronts – massage through, shake and you’re done, that’s it. No-fuss, frizz-free, can’t quite put your finger on it healthy looking. I reserve it exclusively for smoothing purposes and layer it over a dry shampoo spray on oily days.

Confessions made, this is a post that I hope will wallow in the depths of G&M that my Mum will never find. But I’m here, pen and paper in hand ready to scribe down your After Party Cream-esque suggestions that will hopefully relieve some tension on my purse strings. But until I find something that occupies the same silky category I’m continuing my bottle a month habit cause this stuff is ah-mazing. Spoken like the words of a true addict, eh?
