OK, a quick update.
I ordered some of this Bumble and Bumble Texturizing Spray and it has changed my life. It is far and away the best styling product I’ve ever used — I’m able to get that Kate Mara beachy wavey bob thing going easily. (More on my new ‘do.) It’s easy to apply with a good spray (do you have any aerosols that apply the product too narrowly? And you end up with like a dense wet spot?) and a less intense smell than this stuff, which Mr. Magpie complained about all the time. And it really adds texture without grease monkeying up your hair. FIVE STARS.
P.P.S. I talk about my favorite peel product here. THE. BEST. Still addicted.
