An Ode to Bumble and bumble's Brilliantine

Today's pick comes from Racked Boston editor Susie Kostaras.

Bumble and bumble Brilliantine, $24

Oh Bumble and bumble Brilliantine, how I adore you. I do not quite know what it is you are (a texture pomade? styling creme? anti-frizz elixir?) but you've been treating my strands well for the past half-decade. Good for pretty much any hair type, you bring instant sexiness to clean or even second-day tresses with just a wee pea-sized amount. You seal frizzy ends, add shine, and give a bit of slept-in volume. Plus your tube lasts at least a year. No wonder I love you so.
