I think I was in middle school the first time I ever heard about Bed Head by TIGI. My best friend was telling me about a miracle product that her mom bought which promised beautiful, smooth, shiny hair like in the commercials. When she showed me the colorful fun pink cylinder I ooh-ed and ahh-ed and took a mental picture (this was a pre-smartphone era) with a promise to buy it for myself. Hours later, I voluntarily offered to go to the grocery store with my parents and scoured the aisles for this miracle product.
I couldn’t get home fast enough. I threw on my best O-Town CD and blasted the speakers while I hopped into the shower. I meticulously memorized the steps and followed those 3 lines on the back of the bottle to a T. It wasn’t until I completely finished that I stood in utter disappointment and realized that after all of that, my hair looked exactly the same.
Turns out, my super smooth, straight hair – didn’t need a smoothing serum. Who would have thought?
But it didn’t matter. I was sold. Bed Head was the cream of the crop and while I didn’t have curly hair, I needed something to get that wet “scrunched” look (the 2000s was fun y’all). I tried product after product and fell in love with each of them. The packaging was fun and in a sea of silver cylinders, I was drawn to the colors.

Fast forward 15 years and I’m still a big fan of Bed Head products. I have since traded my Manipulator texturizing cream for the Rockaholic Dry Shampoo and the After Party Smoothing Serum for the Small Talk volumizer. Turns out, there is a product for everyone – but not each of them should be used by everyone. Here are product recommendations for every hair problem that you may be having:
Oily / Day Old (or Two or Three) Hair
This is my holy grail item. I live for dry shampoo and I can say with certainty that my hair is 80% dry shampoo by Friday. This product is easy to use and keeps dirty hair manageable for those in between wash days.
Lifeless / Limp Hair
This thickener promises to add body and volume to your hair without weighing it down. Just a pump or two is all you need for all-day hold + it doubles as a heat protectant!
A smoothing serum that will be your best friend. After Party promises silky and healthy looking hair with tame flyaways!
