This Styling Primer Is The Solution to All of My Hair Problems

I have two major hair gripes: It’s impossibly dry and constantly frizzy. In fact, I’ve lamented my hair struggles to any stylist who’s been willing to listen, and they’ve all told me the same thing: use a hair oil.

Hair oils are a multipurpose product that can nourish dry hair or tame flyaways and frizz. The only problem is that using oils can be tricky. An oil that’s too thick can weigh hair down, or if you’re too heavy-handed with one, it’ll look like you haven’t washed your hair in a week. I fall into the latter category, which is why I’ve avoided using oils in my hair until now. I needed something that would hydrate my hair so it was more smooth and less brittle from my already dry texture. That’s where Bumble and bumble’s Hairdresser’s Invisible Oil Heat & UV Protective Primer, $28, comes in.

Yes, it’s an oil — but it’s also a primer, and one that’s different from anything I’ve tried before. It’s a milky spray that I spritz on my damp, clean hair before blow-drying it. Even though the formula has six oils in it, my hair feels light, voluminous, and most importantly, smooth as hell once it’s dry. No matter how much I spray on (and trust me, it’s a lot) my hair never has that slimy, greasy feeling I’d get with a traditional oil.

The primer also protects against heat damage and UV rays, too. You can spray it on wet hair at the beach, or although I’ve never used it when my hair’s dry, it can also be spritzed on second day hair before freshening up your style.

Let me begin this post by saying that when it comes to hair, I’m the laziest of the lazy. You’ll never find me doing a mask, my fancy hairdryer still lives in its original, unopened packaging and I only recently learned how to (sort of) curl my hair. I live for dry shampoo, and that’s about it.
I did, however, recently dye my hair green, which left me with awesome mermaid strands, but also made my hair a bit dry. In addition to washing my hair less often (see above note re: dry shampoo), I’ve also been taking extra steps to protect my color, which has led me to try a bunch of new hair products, including this one.

Bumble and Bumble Hairdresser’s Invisible Oil Primer is like the overachieving, straight-A’s, violin virtuoso-polyglot-cheerleader from high school; it does everything, and it does it well. Just a few spritzes help to soften, detangle, tame frizz and flyaways and protect against breakage, heat-styling and UV damage. It’s magic.

I reach for it whenever my ends are feeling a bit parched, before using my curling iron and on especially sunny days to shield against the sun’s damaging rays. Unlike other oil-based hair products I’ve tried in the past, this one is super lightweight and doesn’t leave my strands feeling greasy and weighed down. And like the Invisible Oil Shampoo and Conditioner, it smells addictively good. 10/10. *Insert applause emoji here.*
