Bumble and Bumble, Guest Post with Sierra

Today I'm excited to be a guest blogger at Andrea's blog where you already know she loves to blog about beauty! I love beauty myself and specifically I've been wanting to share about some amazing hair products that I have come across. 

Before I begin you might be wondering where I came from? Well, my name is Sierra and I'm a blogger over at my ocean inspired blog home called Ocean Dreams. I'm also a featured blogger at where I blog about fashion, brands and stores twice a week. So now that I've introduced myself lets get going on some amazing hair product!

Recently I cut my hair to a shorter length (I cute 10" off) and as my hair stylist did my hair after my hair was colored and washed, I was careful to observe what she used in my hair. I wanted to know what hair product would work well for short hair, due to me not being familiar with how to style short hair. This is the shortest my hair has ever been cut so using the best products to style my hair I knew would be very important. Here's me with my new hair do.
My hair dresser is a big fan of the brand Bumble and Bumble and it’s really easy to understand why she adores and religiously uses this product. With a great shampoo and conditioner that keeps your hair healthy and strong, I became easily addicted to Bumble and Bumble. The Super Rich Conditioner is perfect for chemically treated hair - it adds moisture and luster. The Gentle Shampoo does the same and it additionally adds shine to your hair! I've been very pleased with both products and recommend them. I bought the smaller bottle sample in both the shampoo and condition for starters because I’m currently on a trip, but I’ve been using the samples quite frequently and will be investing in a big bottle when I get home!
Besides the shampoo and conditioner, she used a Bumble and Bumble Curl Conscious Defining Cream in my hair, which I have fallen in love with. It’s so so easy to do my hair now! All I have to do is wake up, wash my hair, put the product in my hair, crunch my curls with my fingers, and I’m done! I love it and it is super easy to style and it keeps your hair soft while still holding the curl. I’m not a fan of the sticky type of gels that takes forever to get out of my hair - yuck!
Plus - isn't the packaging for the Curl Conscious Defining Cream adorable?
I love the colors that they chose and the swirls. Super cute if you ask me.
I had no idea that they also have a Calming Cream, which I need to stock up on pronto.
As soon as I did my hair with the Defining Cream I loved it, but it would be great to
have the Calming Cream in addition, to get rid of the left over flyaway hairs and frizz.
 Here are a few other products I am also dying to try out:
Bb Tonic Lotion is great to use to detangle your hair and prepare it for styling. 
You spray it on your hair and work through it.
 Bb Prep looks fantastic because it a refresher product, meaning it prepares your hair for styling again.Simply dampen your hair and reactivate products that are already in your hair! How cool is that?!

Thank you Andrea for your beauty filled blog!
Thank you to you beauty readers for learning about Bumble and Bumble with me.
You honestly must check out their site. They have some amazing products you
don't want to miss out on.
