I decided to go to the salon and dye my hair blonde again and I wanted to make sure I had a good shampoo and conditioner to keep my hair moisturized and easy to maintain since dying your hair blonde can be harsh. Before I bought the Bed Head Dumb Blonde (white bottles) shampoo and conditioner, I was a little nervous on whether or not I should get them because of some of the negative reviews I read but I just wanted to give them a try since my hairstylist suggested it. I did notice that these products do smell a tad like cat pee like some have said HOWEVER, it only smells like that when I blow dry my hair when the hot heat from the dryer hits my hair. Afterwards my hair smells really good. I know that sounds weird to say but it honestly does smell good afterwards like a citrus/flower kind of scent AND the smell lasts allllll day and that's even after I straighten my hair everyday! Normally shampoos and conditioners don't leave a lasting scent in my hair unless I go to town on my scalp for a good 10 minutes but this stuff does. I've been using this stuff for 2 weeks so far and it hasn't let me down yet! It keeps my blonde color vibrant and gives my hair a silky smooth finish. It goes on smoothly in the shower too. I have not tried the Bed Head Dumb Blonde (purple bottles) to know how the two different bottles compare but I am satisfied with this product and as long as I am blonde I will continue to use this product. Give it a try, it is not as terrible as everyone makes it to be but then again everyone's hair is different. My hair is fine/normal, I straighten it everyday, and have dyed my hair plenty of times to know what damaged hair is all about. So if you're anything like me, give this stuff a try. The least that will happen is you are out $50 bucks.
I love the TiGi Bed Head products, and have tried a few different shampoos and conditioners and LOVED them. I hadn't tried the Dumb Blonde one, but figured I'd give it a go because I thought it would be just as good as the other ones (I especially like the Urban Antidotes ones). The shampoo & conditioner are awful. After washing my hair it doesn't feel silky or smooth, which you would expect, but instead it feels oily and unclean. I think it would feel nicer if I didn't wash it at all!! So that is $50 wasted, and I've had to go out and buy new shampoo & conditioner, because there is no way I can keep using this stuff. continued >>
HG treatment/conditioner. Love the smell, texture and it's the only non-DIY treatment that gives me real results. Very nourishing and truly hydrating without leaving a ton of grease or residue on the hair. I've been using this for a while and have loved it the since the first use. I used to use this everyday when I had long hair and now that it's short I still use it but as a once a week (or so) treatment. Love! This never fails me.
Iíve been using this on again off again for years because I kill my hair with bleaching and hair color changes. It made it soft, shiny, and manageable again in a very short while of using. It also doesn't strip colors like almost every other shampoo I've used. I'm not too crazy about this compared to the shampoo. They do both smell great, but something about the conditioner lacks. It seems very lightweight for something that's supposed to be for fried hair. My only complaint with the big bottles from the salon was that I always ended up breaking the pump towards the end, and getting the last of the product out was impossible.
Recently though Bed Head changed packaging and it seems like from reviews the product as well. I do know the other shampoo and conditioner I tried by them recently (the urban antidotes resurrection) was very low quality, and cheap. I won't be trying this again.
It's a shame because this was my go to shampoo and conditioner for the longest time.
weighed down my hair and left a oily film. yuck
There are WAY better conditioners/treatments for the price of this. Joico, Kerasilk, S Factor Serious Conditioner are all better than this.
I only used the old formula, and refuse to try the new formula.
Nothing overly bad with this product, but its not that good of a conditioner compared to those on the market for the same price, yet it tries to market itself as the best product for bleached hair.
Try Kerasilk or S Factor Serious Conditioner. K Pak by Joico is also fabulous. These are all the same price and do twice the conditioning work.
I agree with the below review! Why did they change the formula? UGH I hate when companies do this. If it ain't broke, don't fix it. It's not as thick or nice smelling as it was.
This product used to be great, but why'd they have to go ahead and screw around with it? This bottle was purchased at Walmart. It is in a solid white pump bottle. All I have to say is, that if you want your hair to smell like cat piss, go ahead a douse your hair with this garbage. What the hell is making that rancid smell anyways? DISGUSTING. I want my money back, and then some. BLECKKKKKKKKKKKK. Do yourself a favour, and buy something that won't attract all of the stray cats in the neighbourhood. OH, and good luck trying to get the pungent, male-cat spray stench out of your locks. >:(
I bought a tube of this from WalMart for $17.99. It's a clear tube with a silver label and black lettering and you can see the yellow conditioner. I used this 5 years ago on a bad highlight job and it worked wonders. I'm using it again for the same reason but it doesn't seem quite as wonderful as I remember, maybe because my hair is more damaged this time? Then I read reviews where they've changed the formula. Why do people have to futz with what works?
Back to the current review: It smells great and I leave it on for 30 minutes or so. I haven't used the matching shampoo but use my regular Shea Moisture shampoo. Dumb Blonde is still cheaper than Ouidad's Deep Treatment even though it's not quite as good. I have naturally curly hair and the curl pattern has returned to my hair even though my highlighted hair still feels slimy when it's wet.
I absolutely love using this on my blonde, highlighted hair. It doesn't wash the colour out and makes it look vibrant. It isn't sticky, and doesn't leave my hair greasy with residue. It conditions perfectly and reduces the appearance of dryness and split ends and always keeps my hair in great condition. I love all of the products from the Dumb Blonde line at TIGI.
