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.
In a couple of hours, my waves look defined, with a lot more volume. It’s a little more structured look, and not as beachy or heavy as I get when I use my holy grail waves product, Kerastase Spray a Porter, but I like the results.
It’s as if Spray a Porter put on her business suit and stepped into the corner office, LOL!
I haven’t tried blowing out my hair with Mousse Bouffante yet, but I’m pretty confident that I could get some killer volume overall because it’s so lightweight.
Kinda pricey at $36 a bottle…but if you’re a Kerastase fan, you might want to give it a whirl.
You can find it now at salons and online at kerastase-usa.com.
Your friendly neighborhood beauty addict,
P.S. Off to go watch Godzilla with El Hub! I promised him I’d go, even though I know pretty much how it’s going to end.
You know — boys and monsters. They go together like husky tabbies and gravy.
Have a great night!
