Bed Head by TIGI Joyride Review

Bed Head by TIGI Joyride

My quest for the perfect styling product is well documented, I like weightless formulations and textures that help add a little grip and texture to my hair, a little definition and frizz control wouldn't go a miss either. Sadly that is easier said than done and I'd rather deal with unruly hair than battle with the crispy, greasy after effects of hair styling products. Well that was until curiosity got the better of me and I gave Bed Head by TIGI Joyride a whirl. Fun fact Bed Head by TIGI Joyride is the worlds first gel to powder primer - a few years in the making but so worth the wait...

As someone with naturally wavy yet soft hair, I like to add a little texture and grit to my hair but it needs to be touchable soft too - Bed Head by TIGI Joyride offers just that. This product is a game changer from start to end, a gel like cream that transforms into a powder like finish once applied to the hair: weightless, soft and undetectable both in finish and to touch.

Bed Head by TIGI Joyride does more than simply adds a lived in texture to the hair, it offers light control be it to keep hair in place or prevent frizz as well as protecting the hair from texture. The gel to power formula adds a light matte finish to the hair, all the while creating a somewhat messy, tousled lived in finish - all with ease and without knotting or leaving the hair greasy. The powdery soft finish is perfect for running through the hair before braiding and/or up do's such as pony tails, to add grip and hold - perfect for freshly washed hair.

If all of the above is not enough Bed Head by TIGI Joyride can be used on wet, dry or damp hair. Personally I find on wet/damp hair it enhances any natural waves or curls within the hair, as well as adding definition - on dry hair it adds more volume and general texture. As a side note this hair primer works well on all hair lengths and textures too. Bed Head by TIGI Joyride is effortless, weightless and what I (and probably many others) have been waiting for.

  6. I tried a sachet sample of this and I found it did what it promised but I could feel it in my hair and I'm really not keen on that, as somebody that suffers with hair that gets dirty easily I cherish clean feeling hair! Maybe I used a little too much? I'm not very used to using products like this so it's likely I probably didn't do the right thing with it! x

  7. As someone with curly and frizzy hair this sounds amazing! It's interesting how it turns from gel to powder too.

  8. This sounds like an out and out game changer!
