September Time Savers



September is here, and let's face it... there's going to be some accidental sleep-ins and early mornings. Good thing for you, we have a list of our favourite Bumble and bumble and Redken products that you need in order to get out of the house asap (or spend the least amount of time on your hair as possible). There are so many products that would help and make a difference but we're just spotlighting a few of our hardest hitters. These primers, blow dry aids, and dry shampoos are going to make your hair routine so much quicker when you're short on time and need to dash out of the house!

Hair Primers

If you ask us, these are a must because every good style starts with a good base. Not only are these great for protecting your hair, but they are also great detanglers which helps save time in the morning because of the increased manageability. If you're really tight on time, pairing these with Air Stylers is a super easy way to leave your house with damp hair and still be confident in it looking good once dry. 


If you ever look at the stations at Elixir, you'll notice that the Bumble and bumble Prep Primer Spray is on every single one. Spray it all over your hair before drying to detangle, and douse your hair in benefits like Vitamin D. If you want to re-blow dry the next day you can use this to dampen (hello fringe-saver).

The Redken One United treatment spray is another product filled with benefits (25 actually) for your locks. It works as a detangler as well as a primer and it also promotes healthy hair. This is a good product because of everything being packed into one container. The difference between this one and the Prep Primer is that you wouldn't use this to re-style the next day.

Blow Dry Aids

After trying these on myself, I just can't go back. These products will shorten how long it takes you to dry your hair, while leaving you with benefits like smoothness, heat protection, and hydration. Have fine hair? There's a spray for that. Have thick hair? There's a cream for that. Have curly hair? There's a lotion for that too! The best part is that you can kill two birds with one stone since some of them act as a primer as well.

The technology in this next blow dry cream is really interesting. The Bumble and bumble All Style Blow Dry cream adds shine, protects from heat damage, and defrizzes your hair. The cool thing is that it also has micro powders in it so when you blow dry it in, the next day the powders will absorb the oils starting to surface on your scalp.

This last blow dry product is one that also acts as a primer. The Pillow Proof Dry Express Treatment Primer Cream is great for all hair types, but especially people with thicker hair. The best part about this product is that it reduces the time it takes you to blow your hair dry. It's also a heat protectant and it leaves your hair three times stronger.

Dry Shampoos

Press snooze and grab the dry shampoo! Everyone has been there where they've slept in and no longer have time to wash their hair in the morning, but don't fret; we've got the solution. Whether you're having a rushed morning or throwing in a gym-sesh before work you need to own one of these!

The Bumble and bumble Pret-a-powder Tres Invisible dry shampoo is an award-winning product that is, well, invisible! Even though you don't see it after you spray it into your hair, it is still there protecting you from UV rays, giving you volume, and getting rid of the oils. Bonus: it smells fantastic and comes in a type for fine-to-medium hair as well as medium-to-thick hair.

Redken's Pillow Proof Two Day Extender does what it says it's going to do; gives you an extra two days of your style. Something super cool about this product is that it has touch-activated fragrance in it so it keeps your hair smelling fresh with every hair flip you do! It gives your hair a matte finish, and it comes in a clear version as well as a spray for brown hair.

So in case you missed it...

All of these products are going to help you whether you woke up late and didn't have time to wash your hair or if you were running out of time and need to be able to do your hair fast. Since September is the month of new schedules, these products should help make that transition a bit easier. If you ever have questions on how to use something, let us know and we would be more than happy to walk you through it!
