When I received an invitation from Bumble & Bumble to try out their new #GreatBigHair products with a blow dry I literally WHOOPED with joy. I’d just had a ‘lob’ (long bob) and also gone chestnut brown. Perfect timing!
My hair is poker straight and with the best will in the world, it will return to said state in about an hour – no matter the product. So I gave my hair stylist Nev the challenge – “super big please”.
To start off with, a thorough hair wash with the new Bumble & Bumble thickening range which includes shampoo, conditioner and an assortment of after products. She used a small amount of thickening spray and some of the mousse. There is also a thickening cream for a good hold.
She pretty quickly realised that my hair needed some turbo charge to make a difference and brought out the curling tongs. I do struggle with a tong so I had a handy lesson on twisting, curling and then pulling the strand to make it ‘pop’.
The final result? Swishy, curly and bouncy! Loved it.
In terms of aftercare: I left with a bumper back of product to experiment with at home. The first session was not too successful as I put a massive blog of thickening cream on my scalp which mushed into a greasy blob. Clearly I need to think about this harder! I’ve tried the spray and mousse since, and they are light and effective, so I’m getting there and the thickening spray is perfect for straight fine hair like mine.
