Beginners Guide to: Bumble & Bumble

The first I heard about Bumble & Bumble products was back when I was 19 – Do you remember that ‘tried and tested’ section in Look Magazines? (Not sure if they still do that feature now) but I took part in it and was sent 4 intense conditioners to try out and rate for the mag (this was way before I blogged).  Anyway, I loved the Mending Conditioner at the time but was still relatively new to the brand.

Since then I’ve tried many Bumble & Bumble products and decided to put together a shortlist of products which are great for those who have never tried the range before, in my new series ‘Beginners Guide to’!











BB Sunday Shampoo: You know sometimes, no amount of shampooing can get rid of that ‘dirty’ hair feeling, especially after using lots of products (I’m looking at you dry shampoo, hairspray, dusting powders)?  Well Sunday Shampoo was invented to be used once a week for an intense, deep cleanse.  This thoroughly strips my hair of any oil, dirt and products, leaving a totally fresh base for the week.  This is quite drying so make sure to use a good conditioner/hair mask on the tips of your hair afterwards.

Surf Spray: Beach waves will always be a hair trend I try to master and perfect.  It’s a difficult mix of being effortlessly perfect looking, which is so difficult to nail, but this beauty helps me get a little closer to that dream.  I spritz this on both wet & dry hair whilst scrunching which leaves me slight kinks and a beachy-style texture.  This is quite drying on my hair and does leave me a little tangled but nothing a tangle teezer can’t solve!

Thickening Dry Spun Finish Spray: I have reviewed this product in full which you can read here – but if you are after a product which gives you volume in the roots and some texture to work with this is for you!

Hairdressers Invisible Oil: I cannot rave about this little oil enough.  It’s really light on my hair, smells delicious, contains loadsa product, and is one of the only oils which doesn’t leave my hair greasy.  I run some of this through the ends of my hair after washing and then again apply a tiny bit when my hair is feeling frizzy (normally in the morning after brushing) and it instantly smooths without leaving me with a oily mop. 

Crème de Coco Shampoo & Conditioner: If your hair is in need of some love and tender care then the Crème de Coco range is for you.  The shampoo & conditioner are packed full of coconut, soy & milk thistle all to help smooth, protect and de-frizz your hair.  The range also smells delicious – super coconutty.

There we have it!  Do let me know what your favourite Bumble & Bumble products are – recommend me some!

Do you use any Bumble & Bumble products? Which is your fav?

  18. Bumble & Bumble hasn't worked for me. I've tried the thickening spray (supposed to work on thinnest hair) and it hasn't thickened my hair. The surf spray didn't give me beachy waves. I'd like to like the line, but it's let me down.

  19. Brilliantine is an amazing product. I use it in my hair while it's wet as a kind of blow-dry cream, and when it's dry as a finisher. The small tube goes a long way!

  20. I'd love to try Bumble & Bumble the oil and thickening spray sound amazing x

  46. Thickening hairspray! That stuff is amazing for lots of volume. I got a 50ml bottle for free in a magazine. It seems to be lasting for ages because you don't need a lot of it each time you use it. I always apply it on damp hair before I blow dry it. Will definitely buy it when I use this up. x

  47. This post couldn't have come at a better time! Bumble and bumble has just come to my boots and I have heard great things about the brand but didn't know where to start but the oil and spray are something that I will be looking in to.

  52. Great post! To add to your collection I recommend the Surf Shampoo and Conditioner (a bit drying) but great for beachy texturised hair, smells like the seaside as well.
