Adrien: Short Hairs Report!

I haven't whined about my hair in a while, have I? Surely not. I'm not really sure what I'm doing with it, to be honest. I recently got it cut back to my shorter bob but I'm kind of over the upkeep on the flapper bangs so I'm maybe growing out my bangs. Maybe. I don't know. I mean, it looks okay:

And this is what I'm working the bangs towards:

Also, maybe also working towards that face because damn. (Pro tip: Do not post your photo right above the photo of a professionally made up celebrity. You will cry.)

ANYWAY.  My tools are still good - I'm still very much in love with my SuperSolano hair dryer (review here) and my BaBylissPro Nano Titanium Flat Iron despite regularly burning the crap out of myself with it. Love hurts.

For products, I'm just using whatever old stuff I have around which is the following:

This Aveda Thickening Tonic does amazing things when my stylist uses is and not much of anything when I use it. I don't know, maybe I'm not using enough but it feels gross and stiff if I overdo it. I can't win.

I use Bumble & bumble Repair from mid-shaft down to the ends and it's pretty good stuff. I also like the Straight version. Sometimes I'll finish with B&B Let It Shine spray but it's been discontinued so I can't really recommend it. The Brilliantine is pretty nice for a finishing touch and I love the Tonic spray though I have no real idea what it does. Bumble & bumble is amazing at creating products that you love but don't actually need. Moving on:


Every so often I'll use Living Proof Perfect Hair Day which sometimes gives me perfect hair but if I use it more than two days in a row my hair gets really flat and lank. I don't even know how else to describe it? It's such odd stuff but I bought a travel size last year and I'm determined to use it up.

Finally, because the weather changed my hair has gotten really flyaway and staticky which is just one more reason to hate winter. So, I will ask my fellow fine/straight hair readers:

What products do you currently like and use? Is there anything life-changing I should try?


  1. Bumble is also amazing at discontinuing the products you need and love! RIP, favorite B&B hair goo and the step #2 (of 3) spray whose name I cannot remember.

    Following this closely because I think we're searching for the same product.....

  2. I was complaining about the same problem with the Aveda thickening stuff, and my stylist told me to shake the bottle before applying. I've done so and it is less sticky and gross although not perfect. You might try shaking to see if it helps.

  3. None of the Perfect Hair Day products work on my hair!

  4. Oribe supershine moisturizing cream...you only need a pea-sized amount but between the amazing smell and the fly-away control, it's well worth the outrageous pric.
