Thickening my hair and adding some volume and bounce to it is something I always try to achieve, so any products that claim to double the size of my strands and make them look all nice and springy is always welcome. As a firm fan of the Bumble and Bumble Thickening range, you can imagine my excitement when the lovely Crème Contour* and Serum* additions arrived at my doorstep. These gems are all tried and tested and the report goes as follows:
Serum for your hair, not your face? Yes, apart from sounding all fancy and innovative I am happy to say that after using the BB Thickening Serum* (here) religiously for the past two months – it actually does work. I’ve seen some not-so-positive reviews of this product but I know that it did work for me and I am happy with it. Basically, this is a nightly leave-in treatment that you apply before you go to bed. Pump the serum two or three times, rub it well between your palms and then work it through your roots and ends on damp or dry hair. Used regularly this product ‘fattens and fortifies each strand’ over time, making the hair thicker, stronger and fuller. I’ve been using the serum twice a week and I can definitely see the difference. My hair definitely feels bigger in size and there is more bounce and life to it. The serum is quite runny and I find that it’s a bit tricky to apply but once you get the hang of things it’s all good. I love that the product absorbs into the hair and doesn’t leave greasy residue, nor does it make my hair stiff or weighted down. Brilliant. If you want to add some life and umph to your locks, get involved with this serum. Love. It.
To help my hair look plumper, more voluminous and defined I’ve been loving the Bumble and Bumble Thickening Crème Contour* (here). I just melt a small amount of the styling cream between my hands and work it through my locks to add shape and definition. I love the created lightweight paste – it helps me set my already styled hair and holds everything together. Crème Contour is my product of choice when I am rocking the curled hair and the way it defines and holds the curls is amazing. On days when I need some lift from my roots I just run a tiny amount on there after I’ve sprayed my beloved Charles Worthington Texturizing Spray (here). These two gems work wonders in conjunction and I like that Crème Contour not only helps my volume hang around for longer but also adds some bounce and lift on its own. One thing I have to mention though is that when I use the cream on my roots my hair does need washing more frequently. Apart from that, this beauty is right up my street – it adds life and volume, it hold and defines the styled hair and it feels light and smells lovely. A total winner.
