Most of us San Diego girls are familiar with makeup primers, which help create a smooth base for your makeup and help it last longer. However, not as many people know about the value of hair primers. Just like makeup primers, hair primers help to create an even base surface to improve the performance of styling products and make your style stay put longer.
Hair primers can be used alone or before applying other styling products to create a weightless shield that acts as a barrier to humidity, air pollutants, and oil from the scalp. Hair primers also protect hair from heat styling and UV rays and give your hair more shine. No matter what hair type you have, there’s a primer that can work for you. Below are a few of our favorite hair primers from Bumble and bumble.
Prep Primer (Fine to Medium-Thick Hair)
Bumble and bumble’s Prep Primer is the ultimate pre-styler for fine to medium-thick hair in the straight to wavy range that’s healthy overall.
This lightweight primer is enhanced with Vitamin D to refresh, detangle, soften, and prep hair for styling– without weighing it down. To use, spray evenly and liberally onto damp or dry hair and work it through before styling.
Tonic Primer (Medium to Thick Hair)
Tonic Primer is a great option for medium to thick hair of any texture (from straight to curly) and condition (healthy, dry, damaged, and/or color-treated).
This hydrating primer is blended with herbs, vitamins, and Tea Tree Oil to detangle, refresh, and hydrate hair. To use, spray Tonic Primer evenly onto wet or dry hair and work through. Use as much as you’d like (you can’t use too much).
HIO’s Heat/UV Protective Primer (Dry, Damaged, and/or Color-Treated Hair)
Hairdresser’s Invisible Oil Heat/UV Protective Primer is a softening mist of many wonders made for medium to thick hair of any texture that’s dry, damaged, and/or color-treated.
A marriage of six featherlight oils, including Coconut Oil, Argan Oil, Macadamia Nut Oil, Sweet Almond Oil, Safflower Seed Oil, and Grapeseed Oil help to soften, silken, tame, de-frizz, detangle, and protect hair against breakage – all without weighing it down. To use on the first day, apply to damp hair, comb through, and style. On the second day, apply the primer to dry hair to refresh and re-style.
Bb. Curl Primer (Fine to Thick, Straight to Curly)
Bb.Curl Primer is a moisturizing, UV protective primer that detangles, de-frizzes and defines curls on day one, and refreshes and re-shapes on day two and beyond. Despite it’s name, Bb. Curl Primer can be used on straight or curly hair of any thickness or healthiness. UV inhibitors also help protect hair from the drying effects of the sun.
This primer is packed full of hydrating ingredients, including HydraSculpt Blend™, Capuacu Butter, Brazil Nut Oil, Babassu Oil, Pracaxi Oil, and a blend of humectants that help provide moisturizing benefits, including, Hyaluronic Acid.
To use, spray Bb. Curl Primer onto damp hair, comb through and style. For an instant style refresh, spritz onto second-day hair (or third, or fourth-day).
