One of the perks of my job is that I get to hear about and try out products even before they’ve launched. This month, one of the products to land on my desk is the new Bumble and bumble Bb Curl Range.
Bumble and bumble is a hair care brand that I’ve always heard good things about but never tried. The Bb Curl collection has been created to replace the current Curl Conscious range and consists of six products. “Whether it’s loose and free, or used as a starting point to create a variety of looks—up, half-up, twists—curly hair is always so stylish. This new Bb Curl collection will change the lives of curly girls.” said Laurent Philippon, Bumble and bumble Global Artistic Director
I got out the range bar the conditioning mousse – the result was so good that I had to share.
Bb Curl Sulphate-free Shampoo – I have a thing for shampoos that don’t strip my hair – that is why I loved this shampoo. The Bb.Curl sulphate-free shampoo worked well in cleansing my hair from product build-up. It contains Bumble and bumble’s HydraSculpt Blend™ – a cross-linking polymer that blends styling benefits with moisturisation so that each curl is controlled and hydrated.
Bb Curl Custom Conditioner – It’s no secret that I love a good multitasking product but I’m not going to lie, this one confused me. In the last year or so, I have grown to love co-washing by hair, it’s a great way to keep moisture in my hair for longer. On the odd washdays, I might use shampoo followed by a leave-in but more often than not, I co-wash. This Bb Curl Custom Conditioner can be used a leave-in, co-wash or rinsed out. When used as a co-wash, its apparently meant to remove product buildup while retaining moisture. But when used as a leave-in, it hydrates, detangles, and leaves hair manageable. I’m still trying to figure out how this works and if I like it.
Bb Curl Defining Creme – My hair loves a good defining crème and this one is just lush! Ideal to use before air-drying hair – I like the defined curls it created on my hair. It’s also infused with the Bumble and Bumble HydraSculpt Blend™; as well Brazilian oils which are suppose to help keep hair moisturized and shiny. Unfortunately I didn’t feel my hair was any shiner after using this product.
Bb Curl Anti-Humidity Gel Oil – I read the description of this product before using it and was instantly excited to try it. It sounded as if it was made for my hair. “Anti-Humidity Gel-Oil that helps loosen and lengthen wound up curls” I mean, YES PLEASE!! The formula is not one I’ve come across before – the hold of gel and the nourishment and shine of oil? Intriguing. This gel is amazing at holding twists in place. I’m partial to twist outs so anything thing that can keep my twists in place is welcomed.
Bb Curl Pre-style/Re-style Primer – Hands down my favourite from the range. Why? Well, for one it’s a multi-use product. Secondly, it’s filled with UV inhibitors to protect hair against the drying effects of the sun. With summer approaching this is a must-have for all curly-haired ladies.
Any natural hair maven can attest to the fact that curly hair can be unpredictable. A beautiful twist out can easily turn to an undefined ‘fro come the end of the day. The Bb. Curl range is great at keeping hair well styled all day. Me likey!
