man bun

Looking back over the past two months of growing my man bun, I am glad I decided to embark on this hair-raising (okay, lengthening) journey. Throughout these eight-plus weeks, I鈥檝e learned way more than I ever knew about hair care, products and my own locks. I鈥檝e tried a variety of leave-in conditioners, played with a handful of accessories and even started taking some pills to expedite the growth process. This week though, I am sharing what I think is my favorite product of the bunch 鈥 an oil that leaves my hair feeling softer than soft that I am now recommending to every single person. I鈥檓 a hair expert now, okay?! ;)

While the man bun is growing and looking more impressive by the day, I have noticed one thing throughout the process I鈥檓 not loving: the ends are starting to feel a little dry and my hair is definitely not as soft as I want it to be. So I started searching the Internet high and low for the best product I could find that would give me a dryness-ending/silky-smooth-commencing two-for-one deal. Of course, the Internet didn鈥檛 let me down, and I found my new fave product that not only works perfectly but also smells amazing!

The hair product that has risen above the rest in my eyes, and that has won my hair鈥檚 affection, is Bumble and bumble. Hairdresser鈥檚 Invisible Oil ($39). I discovered the oil in YouTuber Gigi Gorgeous鈥 鈥淢y Beauty Secrets!鈥 video. In the vid, Miley鈥檚 pal reveals some of her own beauty secrets (obviously) and products she absolutely loves for tanning, beauty and hair, along with entertaining stories throughout. After Gigi described what the Bumble and bumble product did (softens + smoothes hair, reduces frizz, tames flyaways and helps detangle and strengthen hair) and said she was 鈥渙bsessed with it,鈥 I knew I had to try it. I mean, look at how gorgeous her hair is. Sidenote 鈥 Heads up blondes: Gigi thinks it鈥檚 鈥渢he ultimate beauty secret for blondes and those with over-processed hair.鈥 *Insert hair flip here.*

Like Gigi, I use two pumps of the oil on my hair, but that鈥檚 where I stop following her (and the bottle鈥檚) directions. Instead of working the liquid into my damp hair after a shower (post-shower I鈥檓 still using the mustard bottle) I use it every morning before heading out for the day on my *dry* hair (whoops!). I must say though, after using it consistently for a couple of weeks now, I have noticed the oil does exactly what the bottle promises: feather-soft hair with a trace of shine that lasts the whole day. I do sometimes catch myself wondering if my hair would be even softer if I applied it to damp hair. Alas, I haven鈥檛 put those daydreams into action, so the mystery still remains ;)

Damp hair usage or not, I can鈥檛 stop running my hands through the soft hair the Invisible Oil has resulted in, and I think every single one of you should try out this product. Also, like I mentioned above, it smells really, really good. Like, delicious good. So for that alone you should pump away.

Okaaaaaay, I鈥檓 gonna go run some more of this oil through my hair. Until we meet again, let me know if you鈥檝e ever used this product or any others that have given your hair crazy ridiculous soft feels. Also, shoot any other hair tips or tricks you鈥檝e got for me in the comments. I crave 鈥檈m. See you next week!
