A+++++++ product! This styling creme works wonders on my super long hair! I put a very small dime size amount thru my hair and after blow drying my hair is stick straight! I love this product and i will continue to use and buy it probably for ever. I'm sure i will experiment with other products but i will always return to this HG product! Like all Bumble and Bumble products this stuff smells lovely.
I got this in an adorable travel set along with the creme de coco shampoo, conditioner and styling cream. However, all the products fell short and needless to say I returned it. This had to be the worst out of the entire set. I used it exactly as directed, and yet my hair medium bra strap length hair ended up a sticky, tangled, dull mess. Ick! However, it did make my hair lay nice once I did manage to get my hair all de-tangled..but that's about it. Totally a crap product. Horrible horrible horrible.
This product is just okay. For me, this worked good on the day after I washed my hair. But, for everyday styling it was just too heavy and didn't really provide any hold or style. I have very layered, thick medium length hair and it basically just weighed it down. However, I loved the smell of this product and it did provide calmness for any frizzy fly-aways I had. But, for the price, it was way too expensive to purchase this again.
Unfortunately I have not had good luck with Bumble & Bumble so far. This product has wonderful reviews but it just does not do anything for my baby-fine hair. Though my hair is fine in texture as well as in abundance, its very dry. And to add, though my hair is very fine, it fortunately provides itself with some of its own volume so I do not have problems limpness like other fine-haired ladies. I tried this is and the styling lotion (see my review for the styling lotion). When I added this to my hair when towel-dried, I liked it so far, it seemed a bit hydrating and made my hair shiny. But when I blow it dry, my hair was frizzy and looked dull and by the end of the day very limp.
For the price and the fact this just didn't work for me, I won't be repurchasing.
I love this super expensive hair product. It is irreplaceable to me though. I've got baby fine hair with a wave and just a bit of this before I blow dry adds thickness and a bit off kick to my ends. This in combo with Defrizz serum from this line is my magical mix for good hair. I feel really confident that my hair looks it's best with this stuff and I will always buy this. I recommend this to anyone who uses heat on their hair or even people who dont that just want a bit of texture without having to do anything. This thickens hair and gives it a bit of volume at the roots. It adds body to your hair while giving it a bit of hold. Love it!!!!!
I love the hold this product gives. It helps to put this at the crown of my hair before I blow dry to give it volume and actually stays throughout the day. If I don't wash my hair the next day I just have to use my hands to give it lift and it stays! I wish I had known about this product sooner! It's pricey but worth it. A little goes a long way.
Love this product when I am setting my hair or need it to look refined for a night out. It's what I would imagine an old school setting lotion to be...gives a bit of volume and a lot of control when I blow out my curly hair. I don't use this everyday, only for special occasions. I feel like it would be drying to use all the time. Helps hold a curl when you layer with other products. Before Bb introduced products specifically for curls, they told you to mix this 50/50 with grooming creme as a styling product to put into curly hair, and it works beautifully that way as well (applied wet or to define when dry).
This is defiantly HG quality. I have very very fine shoulder length red hair. It adds so much volume ! But without the stiffness, hard to comb-ness, hard to restyle-ness, and the weird crispy-ness. I used this in my wet/damp hair and blow-dried my hair with my head upside down and BAM.. it looks like I went to the salon for a professional blowout.
The smell is nice. I've smelled better and worse. Its nothing special.
It leaves my hands a little sticky... but amazingly not my hair.
The only con I see for this product, is the PRICE. I get that really good products tend to be really expensive, but I still get bummed out for forking over 25 dollars. :[
I will defiantly be buying this again. Despite the pricetag.
I've finally found a product that works like a dream on my curly hair. B&b Styling Creme is the only product that I need to style my hair. It is light and non-sticky but it provides great hold and volume without the nasty feeling of other styling creams I've tried. The scent is very light and fresh. This is also great for the days I straighten my hair. It really does everything. I can finally stop wasting my money trying other products. I will never try another product again!!! continued >>
i have been a bumble & bumble junkie for about 5 years now. ever since i graduated from college and could somewhat afford this stuff, i've been using it.
i have dark, thick, coarse, wavy/curly that is pretty long. because my hair is quite heavy, the roots tend to get weighed down easily. this product and ghd fat hair lotion work miracles on my hair. one might think, she already has thick wavy hair, why would she want more volume. well, there's nothing worse than hair that is bottom heavy and flat on top.
anyway, i actually like this better than the ghd fat hair lotion, but the ghd stuff comes in at second and is a bit cheaper, so i will alternate.
as most b&b devotees know, their products are meant to be layered and used with other products depending on the results you want. i don't use this styling creme alone. i usually start with a silicone based product such as defrizz, fredric fekkai gloss, or even frizz ease, then i add this styling creme, then finish it off with the curl conscious creme.
this has a matte feel to it which can be a little strange, but it really adds volume. this is a must have for me and i've been using it for over 3-5 years. continued >>
