This is one of my favourite styling products for hair. It leaves no residue and works really really well with other product lines as well. I like using it paired with either the Tonic or the Prep (both also by B&b). Gives me a nice control when blowdrying and also doesn't dull the hair (like the thickening spray does, on me at least). Oh, and I also love the smell. :)
I had problems with my hair staying straight for more than a couple hours after I used my Chi on it, because it's so difficult. But after adding this to my routine I haven't had that issue again. Definitely loving the results, it was exactly what I was hoping!
This styling product works very well for fine hair. It's to be used right before styling. Package says to "saturate" hair. I tried it that way and it worked nicely to make my hair straighter, while providing some volume. I later tried this product using a bit of Kenra Platinum Styling Creme prior to spraying a little less of this lotion on my hair. I was very happy with the results. It gave my hair a little bit more manageability, without losing the style or shine I got on the first day. I also used Pureology's volumizing shampoo and conditioner, so Bumble's Styling Lotion obviously works well with other product lines. I also used this after styling on the second day and it added back the shine. So, I definitely would recommend this to anyone with fine hair.
Whatever this is supposed to do for my hair (I'm not really sure), I guess i's doing a good job. I apply it to my damp hair before I blow-dry and straighten and it really holds the shape of my hair! In addition, it protects my hair from the damaging heat and makes it really soft. I took one lippy off only because I find this product to be a bit sticky, but luckily that goes away after I straighten my hair.
I kept trying to make this work like my hairdresser wanted me to use it- as a pre-blowdrying mist, but it makes my hair look like crap, and feel like hell too. It just didn't add anything at all to my look. I needed to wash my hair sooner, and it really made it harder for me to use a brush or comb when drying. So I bailed on that whole idea...
HOWEVER , now I have started using it on my dry hair, just a LITTLE bit, & moslty on the ends, before I curl or straighten, and WOW. Much better, it helps my hair hold whatever look I am going for, and with any luck actually is protecting my strands from further damage.
I am thrilled that it has a second life as I felt foolish for spending the $$ and sitting here with another unused bottle of....stuff. But I'm still not bowled over with it as a whole, and was very unhappy with the performance as a preblowout mist.
I have dry, chin-length curly hair and this product works well for me. I spray it on my towel-dried hair, distribute it with my fingers or a wide-tooth comb and let my hair air-dry. My curls are nicely shaped, soft with a bit of hold and absolutely no crunch. I haven't yet experienced frizzies, but it's not humid yet. We'll see what happens in the middle of summer. Stay tuned.
Bumble & Bumble has quickly become my HG for hair. I love all their products that I've used. This is great for making my hair look sleek and chic all day because when I used regular hair products once I walked out the door my hair was dull. I love that I can use this on my dry hair to take excess flyaways and right before I use my blow dryer and straightner. I also love the smell, it reminds me of honeysuckle. Once again, I'm not too happy about the price but I'll be buying this again!
This has become a HG staple for my curly frizzy locks. I spray this onto damp towel dried hair and then I run my hands through my hair to make sure the product is evenly distributed. Then, I let it air dry. Once it is dry, I turn my head upside down, side to side, shaking it all out and sorta bunching my hair up with my hands. I do this a few times and I end up with soft, full, beautiful curls. The finished look is very beachy with a cool bedhead like vibe.
This is my staple styling spray. It offers light-to-medium hold and lift for when I'm blow-drying my heavy, thick hair. My hair remains soft to the touch, yet remains styled all day. The only problem I have is that I don't get much product for the price--I'm out before I can blink!
MEH is all I have to say. Everytime I use this product I end up throwing my hair into a loose bun because my hair looks DULL, it looks FRIZZY, and it doesn't hold style at all. For reference, I have very straight hair that is fine in texture but thick in weight, so it's really difficult to find products that hold a wave for me. This just makes my hair go flat and eliminates all the shine my hair has. It literally looks like I haven't washed my hair in a few days when I use this.. just dull and gross. Extremely disappointing product, but I seem to be the only one who dislikes it. I usually love Bumble and Bumble products but I can't believe I wasted so much money on this.
