First question I have: what’s a bouffante?

I looked it up. :)

According to wikipedia, it’s from the present participle of bouffer: “to puff, puff out.”

It’s where we also get the word, “bouffant.”

Second question I have: why bother with a hairdryer when Mother Nature’s hairdryer, also known as the heatwave we’re having pretty much throughout California right now, works perfectly fine, and also happens to be completely free?

After showering this morning I worked Kerastase Mousse Bouffante into my damp, wavy hair, starting at the ends and making my way down to the roots.

Compared to other Kerastase hair styling products I’ve tried, this one smells pretty tame, which I like. There’s just a faint jasmine scent.

Designed to embiggen hair (I know that’s not a real word… I just really wanted to use it. :) ) and provide structure without weight, so it gives me the volume I crave. I’m using it buy myself time before my next haircut in about three weeks (my mop has been pretty heavy and kind of flat).

I apply it to my hair when it’s damp, and you can either blow dry or air dry. Since it’s been — to quote Nelly — hot in hurr, I’ve been air drying lately. I usually sit in my oven… I meant “office” upstairs, and wait.

Kerastase Lift Vertige Root Uplifting Gel

**WARNING** Bathroom Alert! **WARNING**

You may find yourself so moved by the lovely lift in yo’ hair after using Kerastase’s Lift Vertige Root-Uplifting Gel that you suddenly break into dance in the middle of your bathroom while singing “La cucaracha! La cucaracha!” and shaking the bottle and your round brush like a pair of maracas.

It happens.

Seriously, Kerastase, you’re doing it right. My hair is overdue for a trim (and, thus, really heavy), but somehow, some way, your Lift Vertige still manages to pump up the volume at the roots.

Kerastase Lift Vertige

The gel formula elevates roots without a “cardboard” feel for volume right at the crown.

  • Provides volume and lift at the roots
  • Long-lasting root support
  • Enhances shine
  • Provides UV and heat protection

After shampooing and conditioning, I work a few pumps of Lift Vertige, which smells faintly of jasmine, into my hair while it’s wet from the roots to the mid-shaft.
