5 Bumble & Bumble Hair Products to Try This Year

 

Hey guys, Happy New Year to you all! What a wonderful year 2015 was, we are so excited for all of the plans we have here at Steven & Laurent for 2016 and can't wait to hare them with you all. I wanted to start off the year with a post sharing with you 5 Bumble & Bumble products you must try this year. Let's get started!

 

BB Full Potential

The Full Potential range is new to Bumble and Bumble, each of the products have been designed to help create fuller and stronger hair so if you have been quite mean to your hair lately with over styling and over processing then this is one for you to try. Let's get your hair back into tip top condition! 

 

Don't Blow It

Always love the idea of leaving your hair to just dry naturally but hate the outcome once you go through with it? My hair is rather frizzy so if I just leave it to dry it ends up looking little hagrid from Harry Potter but not anymore, I've been using Don't Blow It styling cream when I fancy just having a lazy hair day and it's transformed my hair routine. I can now actually stand my hair in it's natural state because this cream ensures my locks are frizz free and looks gorgeous, it requires little effort and is a must have for those days you want to avoid heat styling. 

 

Surf Infusion

This spray is actually another product I love to use with Don't Blow It, Surf Infusion is a salt-in-oil innovation, this mellow mix of tropical oils and texturising sea salts creates soft, sea-tossed waves with sheen. You can use this anytime, either before styling on damp hair or on dry hair to add some more texture it's very lightweight and creates the most beautiful beachy waves.

 

Hairdressers Invisible Oil

This is a product everyone needs, it's transformed my hair over the past year and I can't live without it. Invisible Oil helps flyaways disappear without leaving the hair greasy or heavy. It's an oil you can use anytime, to soften, smoothe and reduce frizz, tame flyaways, detangle and strengthen hair against breakage. Perfect!

 

Sunday Shampoo

I don't know about you but I'm pretty lazy when it comes to washing my hair, I wash it twice a week and I do use quite a lot of products so by using something like the Sunday Shampoo it's really going to ensure that hair is squeaky clean from all of those products you've been using. This weekly shampoo is like a little hair detox, it's ideal for product junkies and infrequent washers like me. 

 

Which will you be picking up next time your in the salon?

Bumble and Bumble Dryspun Finish

bbdryspun

 

It seems that the only hair products I use these days are by Bumble and Bumble and my gosh are they fabulous... I don't think I've come across anything I haven't liked yet and my latest obsession is the BB Thickening Dryspun Finish hair spray, something I didn't think I'd like and one of those products that always makes your hair look incredible after leaving the hairdressers. I did worry I wasn't going to be able to make this work for me, I have quite a dry scalp when I use dry shampoo type products and can be quite sensitive to them also so when I found out this worked well for me it made it's way into my weekly hair routine!

 

The BB Dryspun Finish is basically a dry shampoo and a finishing hairspray rolled into one, it creates instant fullness and texture to my lifeless 3 day hair and gives it the life it needs without weighing it down or making it feel heavy. This product can be used on all hair types, I have quite thick hair although it can be very flat so it really works well adding that extra oomph and it's also appropriate for colour treated hair thankfully.

 

I like to use this either straight after blowdrying if I'm after a little more texture or after a couple of days when my hair starts to look a little limp and lifeless, it's perfect to spray onto freshly curled locks as it gives that extra body and texture without making it look crispy or too 'done' like some hair sprays can sometimes do. I really love this finishing spray and I'd highly recommend it if you have thin or lifeless hair that needs some texture and fullness without the backcombing and heavy feeling.

 

If you're struggling with flat and lifeless hair then ask in the salon for a try of the Bumble and Bumble Dryspun spray, it's pretty fabulous!

Bumble and Bumble Thickening Creme Contour Review

bbthickeningcontourcreme1

Since cutting all my hair off into a bob I've found styling my hair an absolute dream I've really been enjoying playing around with new products and styles. I have to admit I have stuck to straight and sleek for quite a while but recently I've become little more adventurous adding a little more texture and volume and I've come across the most fabulous product to help with that. I'm quite lazy when it comes to hair washing and styling so when I came across this Bumble and Bumble product that allowed me to be lazy and still create a fabulous yet effortless bed head style I fell in love.

I was first introduced to the Creme Contour when Sarah used it on me hair after we first chopped off my locks, she explained this works well on all hair types and perfect to shape shorter cuts like mine. It's a shaping cream that you warm up between your fingers to create a light weight paste and work into the hair to shape and hold your style. It works amazingly well with curls and waves especially in hair like mine, but don't be fooled it works with sleek and straight locks too adding texture and volume it holds so well and is weightless on the hair too.

I have to say I was a little worried this would make my hair feel greasy and I thought I wouldn't really know how to use it but after first use it was love and I have been using it ever since, I no longer have to back comb my hair for volume which is so damaging for my hair, I can now be kind to it by using the Creme Contour and it's just perfect for those that work so hard blowdrying their hair to get that beautiful voluminous style but struggle to keep that hold and lift, you need the tiniest amount as a little goes a really long way but let me tell you the Creme Contour is going to hold that baby like no other!

Have you tried any of the Bumble and Bumble styling range? Ask one of the salon stylists about products that would suit your hair type we are always happy to help!
