In the fall I made a bold decision to cut my bangs. It’s the age old tale of having a personal crisis and taking it out on your hair, I too am susceptible to clichés. Though it looked incredibly cute, I quickly discovered that bangs are just not for me. Read on to find out my trials and tribulations of life with bangs….
First of all, I run at a high temperature most times which means moisture which means sweaty sticky bangs. Ugh.
Secondly, one gust of wind and it’s all over. I found myself constantly combing them straight.
Lastly, you must always blow dry them and guess what? I’m too low maintenance on my hair to even consider that a feasible lifestyle choice.
Here are a few products that made this experience more manageable for me:
These are the real magic makers when it comes to bangs. The Wet Brush was useful when my hair was still damp. I would brush my bangs to the left and then to the right under my T3 Featherweight blowdryer until they were mostly dry. I would follow that up with the Kevin.Murphy (similar here) round brush to give them a bit of curl – see below photos for an example of my wicked technique. The Conair teasing brush is the one I would carry around to straight or adjust any mishaps that happened during the day. If my hair started to do that attractive separating act like it does when it’s a bit greasy, I would back comb those bitches back into place.
With the amount of blowdrying I was doing, the frizz that came with it was inevitable. I needed a little extra help in the smoothing department. Thank goodness for Kevin.Murphy’s Smooth.Again wash and rinse.
