Bumble & Bumble thickening shampoo, conditioner and hairspray, £18.50 to £21.50
I am not normally one to be drawn in by all the hype about a product and will only try something new if it's been recommended by someone who's actually used it. I have to be honest, I probably wouldn't even have considered the Bumble and Bumble products due to their price but then my lovely daughter Lisa bought a couple of their items in a recent sale to review on her blog Topaz & May (see full review here) one of these items being the BB thickening hairspray. Lisa already has really thick hair which she must have inherited from her dad because mine is really fine, so she gave this to me to try, I haven't looked back since!
Having been totally impressed by the hairspray, I wanted to try out the shampoo and conditioner but considered them too expensive until I came across the travel sized versions on a recent trip to my local Boots. Although still fairly expensive at £5.50 for the shampoo, £6.50 for conditioner and £7.50 for a travel size hairspray this was still way less costly than the full sized products and a great way to try them all before an expensive splurge.
BB thickening shampoo - Firstly, I can't describe just how lovely and fresh this shampoo smells, it's amazing. The results were equally as good, my hair not only felt fresh and clean but also thicker and stronger even before styling and drying.
BB thickening conditioner - This smelt just as lovely, it's almost like fresh cut flowers and I didn't use as much per application so it would probably last twice as long as the shampoo. The combination of both this and the shampoo left my hair feeling clean, fresh, in better condition and definitely fuller. It also looked so much healthier and shiny, result!
BB thickening hairspray - I have been using the hairspray that Lisa gave me for over a month now and have really noticed positive results, hence the urge to try the shampoo and conditioner. I usually spray this into the roots of my hair whilst still damp and give it another quick spray when combed and ready for drying. It's great for styling and holds the hair for longer than other sprays I've tried. When dried, curled or straightened, I finish off the look with another quick spray to keep it in place. You don't get the stiff hold of some hairsprays and when brushed out there doesn't seem to be any product. residue, it still feels very natural.
Now that I've tried these products for myself I will definitely be restocking, maybe even trying the Bumble and Bumble (really) thickening serum next. However I may have to do a little research to find a good deal first. So far I've spotted them slightly cheaper on the Amazon website, I will let you know if I find any cheaper stockists.
Have you tried any of the Bumble & Bumble products? Are there any other products you might recommend for thickening treatments?
