Review: Bumble and bumble. While You Sleep Overnight Damage Repair Masque + Save the Day-Daytime Protective Repair Fluid

I had been debating for quite some time whether or not to purchase this(yes despite it being a newer release I was debating whether to get this or the Gloss Moderne stuff but ofcourse Sephora you were out of Gloss Moderne packette version which was my first choice!Unfortunate!) In the end I was so glad I purchase the B&b products I had to share my thoughts here–

I’m going to start off with the overnight masque:

-smells great

-texture is a mix between creamy and gel-but to me more gel like

-I had originally bought the orange jar from the invisible line but after about two tries I realized it was too hard to get into my hair it left residues and slippery(real dangerous)so I quit using the orange and white jar–this one is more my style

-I don’t like putting anything in my hair while I hit the pillowcase but this worked its way into my scalp and hair and it left no yucky mess while I rolled around in my sleep

-I went ahead and rinsed it some then added shampoo to wash it out(OGX works great after any B&b treatment including the scalp detox) it rinsed out nice

NO CONS on this one 10/10 will repurchase Kinda pricey but works great and beautiful container love everything about it.

 

Save the Day Daytime protective repair fluid:

-smells great I believe its the same scent as the masque-will check back on that just pleasant nothing over the top someone even walked by me and said “beautiful perfume what is it” I was like it’s the new B&b line

-texture is light not quite hair oil but not thick as a leave in its between two of those when you look at it, it shines like its opalescent in a way maybe that’s the sun protection part of it.

-the bottle is so pretty and its got a twist and lock thing which I like

-it makes my hair so soft its just so soft and smooth since the sun is so strong right now I am leaning on this one for the UV protection more than anything since my hair is on the dry coarse side most days.

-cons PRICEY-small for price but since I love it–this may replace most of my current hair products aside from the bumble and bumble styling and that new Oribe wax spray I’m diggin’-then again those are styling products and this one is like a primer–uv protection–amazeballs!

Review: Gloss Moderne shampoo + conditioner-clean luxury

They carry like two types: high gloss and the clean luxury type. I sampled the clean luxury set and it was pretty awesome. Here’s what I thought:

-the scent is like a vanilla, coconut-y fig like scent I’d describe it similar to the bath and body works fig one they used to sell mixed with a hint of vanilla or something. its not floral or citrus-y. I prefer a more citrus or floral scent but…

-non lathering

-rinses out quick and non stripping

-end results incredible I’m pretty sure I will purchase this one.

10/10 exceeds my expectation and I’m picky. I like that Sephora carries the 5 pack set for those of us that travel or don’t want clutter. I like the idea.

 

Bumble and bumble Scalp Detox

Funny how things work. Right after I wrote here how I’ve been doing much better after eating icecream for like 3 days straight and eating sloppy and some other stress related incidents I was down for the count. I had a fever in my knees, a throbbing headache it was bad. I was so sick I could not take my dog out which I felt horrible about but the worst part was not being able to wash my hair.

That’s when I realized I had previously bought a bottle of scalp detox. I hadn’t been able to bathe in like 3 days so I read the instructions which tell you to spray it directly onto your scalp section by section, massage it in and leave it on for 3 minutes. I was like fair enough. The moment you spray it on there’s this instantly tingly but wonderful feeling I needed to freshen up. I washed it out and my hair felt fantastic. After the usual, conditioner and leave in I went to the look at the upper scalp area and my hair doesn’t even look oily anymore. It was so bad this morning. Thank goodness! Thank you Bumble and bumble! I will use this on my emergency days! Cool product!

10/10 it did everything I needed and it feels so good on your scalp. Its for all hair types!

Review: Bumble and bumble Hairdresser’s invisible oil shampoo and conditioner

As I probably wrote about here, I bought both those items at a nearby spa. I ran out of most of my r+co items and I had been curious of the invisible oil line since I used to use the oil when it first came out. I loved everything about both the items and here’s what I thought about them:

the shampoo- the instructions tell you to use a dab on wet hair. At first I was like a dab hmm until I put some into my palm and realized the texture is more thick than regular shampoo I’ve used(even the sulfate free ones weren’t like this texture) it has a nice soft scent and has ingredients like coconut, grapeseed, argan and gardenia to name a few to smooth and detangle drier hair types. Rinsing it out was harder but its similar to the curl care shampoo and I like both of the shampoos so far. price $31 for 8.5oz

Now the conditioner-its not too thin which I like it smells soft like the shampoo and the ingredients are just about the same but if I had to choose 1 because I was saving money or on a budget maybe i’d buy a cheaper shampoo and buy the conditioner(but if you’re smart maybe ask for a sample during checkout somewhere) you’re supposed to leave it on 1-2 minutes from root to ends but I decided not to go all the way to my roots but close enough it rinsed out nice and my hair is less tangly! I almost think its a cheaper conditioner to the Oribe one I loved because it detangles!  Price$34 for 6.7oz

would I buy the items again: YUP. I would budget shop elsewhere and get them. I say if I had to choose between the curl care the curl care is just a tad ahead because my hair bounces more but…they come super close. Right when I think about walking away B+b pulls me back in!

 

Review: Bumble and bumble Hairdresser’s Invisible Oil Dry Oil Finishing Spray

After complaining about dry hair for so long I figured there had to be something out there for me. What I was looking for was something quick, lightweight but something that makes my hair look healthy and shiny.

Here’s what I can tell you about the product it tames frizz, its lightweight, the scent is a floral and a hint of tropical like scent, you can spray a small amount and get instant smoothness once its combed in. It can be used daily has UV protection and is $34 for 3.2 oz. Kinda pricey but I can assure you a little bit will go a long way. So far I love it and don’t know how I lived without it!

L’occitane Repairing Shampoo + Conditioner

I suffer from dry, coarse thick hair. Its been an issue since late November. I’m really on a lookout for a shampoo more than anything and I found my product in the L’occitane repairing shampoo! Lucky for me while on travel in Japan I made a couple purchases at a L’occitane shop. One of the employees there was like you should try this sample and I was like ooh hair stuff sure. I saved it at the time since my hair was in much better condition. Now its dry coarse my scalp also dry. This shampoo covered every issue its very velvety to the touch clear and everything I’d want in a shampoo minus the fact that if you’re sensitive there is SLS and its smells quite natural almost medicinal herbal. I was asked today about what products I use on my hair! I was like humble brag ” sample from L’occitane” the shampoo and conditioner rinse out nice I finished my look with some oribe star glow wax just a small amount scrunched it to bring out my waves.

Favorite Hair Products

I don’t know about everyone else but the winter was harsh on my hair. Not only was my hair dry it tangled and it lacked shine. I tried all sorts of products and realizing there were two items that worked perfect together.

What I started using for a month or so is the Rita Hazan triple threat split end remedy then I squeeze a nickel size of the oribe supershine moisturizing cream for shine. Not only does my hair smell like heaven I can airdry or blow dry with no hassle. Had I known the oribe cream was so good I would’ve bought 2 tubes! The great thing I found out was that the lighter version is an option for thinner hair and the supershine moisturizing the one I use is for thick coarse wavy/curly hair and some places carry the travel 1.7 oz size! Worth a try!

Leonor Greyl Bamboo Shampoo

For some reasons a couple days ago, my hair decided to quit being shiny and just got dry and brittle. Funny story it did that mostly on the top to mid section and the ends are just frizzy and damaged..I was real confused and upset but I realized I had a sample of the Leonor Greyl bamboo shampoo for dry, long hair. Let me tell you, its amazing! Its not sulfate free so normally I’d steer away from it for that reason but I haven’t had a LG product I didn’t like. My hair instantly came back to life I was so happy to see the bounciness was back and not have to worry hand combing would give me problems. No problems whatsoever! The only thing I don’t like is the scent. The scent is a bit off-putting. Almost masculine. It reminds me of a nice male cologne but everything else is superb!

I finish my routine with the ouai hair mask or something from Alterna caviar! Im pretty sold on the product that Im willing to get a bottle of that and maybe a bottle of that cool Briogeo one! Until then Im going to quietly use my mother’s pantene age defy shampoo. Anyone have an idea if the OGX brand’s bamboo shampoo is any good? I’ve always loved their shampoos!

 

 

July 2016 Empties

-Koh Gen Do cleansing water

-Josie Maran moisturizer with spf 47

-Dr. Bronner castille soap “lavender”

-Dr. Hauschka rose day light cream

-Ouai repair conditioner

all great products not one negative thing to say about them. I don’t know which one I love better the KGD water or the wipes…they both smell fresh and take off sunscreen like no other.

New Hair Products I tried(and Loved)

I thought what better than to post about the fairly new products I tried and loved so here we go! First product I tried was the alterna pre shampoo treatment. What you do is dab it all over your DRY hair, let it sit between 5-15 minutes wash it out, then shampoo and condition as usual. End results were great I was left with more volume and moisture!

I tried biotin products for the first time after all my friends raving about it and I must say I see added volume and I really enjoyed biotin shampoo.

Last but not least, Bumble and bumble curl (care) I think thats the name of the newest line for waves/curly hair and its awesome. Shampoo smells good but the conditioner was the winner out of the two. The creaminess was amazing it was so easy to put on the ends of my still dry and frizzy hair and I enjoyed every second of it. I rinsed it out after a minute or so of leaving it on and I didn’t even use a styling product and my waves look flawless. The scent lingers but I LOVE it !!!
