If you’ve read our recent post about the Smashbox, Ojon and Bumble and Bumble event in Boots then you will also know that we were really impressed with the products we were shown.
I’ve been working my way through my stash recently but I’d also been looking for a hair product, preferably a spray that could cover the requirements of a heat protector and also a leave in conditioner. Did such a thing exist? Well I found this little beauty on the shelf:
The Bumble and Bumble (Bb) Hairdresser’s Invisible Oil Heat/UV Protective Primer was something that stood out to me from the shelf; the neon coral is one of my favourite colours and seeing as it was in a spray form I just couldn’t resist!
There are 2 sizes of this product available in store,the 250ml bottle costs £19 and there was a smaller bottle available too. On line it shows up as a 60ml bottle costing £7 but I’m pretty sure in store there was a smaller size for a larger price – it’s a little confusing!
The protective primer is sold as a sublime pre-styler for a total transformation of your hair.
The product is infused with six featherlight oils to soften, detangle, defrizz, tame flyaways, ease styling, and protect against breakage, heat and UV all in one go.
That’s quite a claim really isn’t it?
It’s therefore claimed to be for people with dry, coarse or brittle hair – mine is definitely dry so I figured it would be worth a go for me!
You need to apply this to damp hair before styling, using the spray was super easy and it creates a mist rather than dumping a load of product onto your freshly washed hair. As I’ve mentioned many times on the blog I don’t use many hair products aside from hairspray when I curl my hair, I don’t find they work well with my hair and give much of a positive effect at all. Some oils have been ok, but can seem to coat my hair rather than actually penetrate it and do some good.
So far though, this one has been an anomaly!
Spraying this on my hair after washing and before drying is such a simple thing but it makes such a big difference. My hair feels so much smoother and in much better condition after only a week’s worth of usage.
Even though it’s just a spray I can’t believe how different this product is from so many others I have tried before it. It’s supposedly for dry, coarse or brittle hair. My hair is dry from being so long but it isn’t generally coarse or brittle, and it can easily become greasy from applying products to it, no matter how ‘lightweight’ they claim to be.
This spray has genuinely had such a great effect on my hair that I would definitely consider trying out more products from Bb, I will certainly be making a wishlist in time for my birthday later this month!
