Do you remember the old, thick mousses we used to use in our hair? The idea was to introduce hold and volume, but I often fell short of the mark, used too much, and ended up with a glob of stickiness on the top of my head. It just didn't distribute right. Bed Head Candy Fixations Totally Baked gives us a light-weight hair meringue, that's lighter than air and has just enough hold to give your volumnious, curly, or wavy styles staying power. Oh, and did I mention that Totally Baked smells like fresh from the oven sugar cookies. Not a bad way to start your styling routine.

How to Use Totally Baked

Totally Baked is simple to use. It's dispensed through a pump at the top of the bottle. One to four pumps, depending on how long or thick your hair is, will usually give you enough product to get the job done. The product looks and feels like a very light weight foam. Pump the product into your hand and place in your hair only where you want extra volume (at the roots), or distribute throughout your hair with your fingers to reduce frizz, define curl or create control. After getting the product where you want it, continue to style as desired.

For big volume, dry hair tipping your head upside down, and try using velcro rollers at the end of the drying process. Finish with a curling iron or straight iron.

For added control, dry and style as usual with a flat iron or curling iron.

To define curls or waves, either allow your hair to air dry or dry on low heat with a diffuser. Finish with hair spray to hold your style.

What Hair Types are Best for Totally Baked?

Totally Baked is most perfect for fine to normal hair thickness with wave or curly texture. It's not too sticky that it'll weigh your hair down and make it "crunchy", but gives enough hold to define your curls or waves.

Thick hair can benefit from Totally Baked as well, but some thick haired girls may find Totally Baked a little on the light side to control waves or curls.

Totally Baked is a great foundation to help with frizz control, but if frizz is a big issue in your hair's world, I recommend cocktailing or using a frizz reducting sereum or oil prior to using Totally Baked.

Straight hair can also benefit from Totally Baked. The combined volumizing and control that Totally Baked provides can give some structure to even the finest, straightest hair. If your straight hair struggles to keep a style in place, Totally Baked is a great solution for hold and structure.

If you have trouble getting your curling iron or flat iron curls to stay, try using Totally Baked before you dry to give your curls the extra convincing they need to stay put.

Prepare to Be Intoxicated

The best thing about Totally Baked, has to be the scent. It's incredible. One of my clients was recently raving about Totally Baked after using it for a few weeks time. She went so far as to say that she loves the smell so much that even if she thought the product was terrible, she's probably still use it just to get her sugar cookie fix every morning. I thought that spoke volumes about how great it smells. I'm not really advocating that you try it based only on the smell, but if you like sugar cookie candles as much as I do, you might consider it.
