Remember Denise Richards’ guest appearance in Friends, where, in the words of Willow Smith, she whips her hair back and forth? If you have fine hair, like me, that hair flick is the stuff of dreams. I’ve tried countless products in the past which all promise fuller, thicker, bouncier hair, but nothing has ever worked. I’m a big fan of Bumble and Bumble‘s surf spray, which is great for adding volume to your roots, but it always leaves my coloured hair feeling dangerously dry.
So when I discovered Bumble and Bumble do an entire Thickening product range I was keen to try it out. The team kindly sent over some products for me to test out; so here’s how I got on…
The Science: According to the press release the Thickening Serum “is our proprietary formula, a cuticle-penetrating blend of plant extracts and a natural lipid.” The serum ingredients “work in tandem to build hair mass within the cortical structure, thickening locks in clinical studies as much as 8% over 12 weeks.” Products contain Algae, Caffeine and Cholesterol.
Pros: I noticed a difference after the first use of the shampoo, conditioner and serum. It hasn’t left my hair feeling heavy or crispy, like other thickening/volumising products I’ve tested in the past, and people have noticed that my hair is looking fuller. I’ll continue to use the products…
Cons: The products are around £20 each, so the full range will cost you. I also found that the shampoo and conditioner didn’t provide enough moisture for my coloured hair, so have started alternating with Kerastase Bain de Force – which keeps my hair looking healthy.
Verdict: Bumble and Bumble’s thickening range has definitely made a difference, so if you’re desperate to pump up fine hair I’d recommend giving it a try. The Thickening Serum is easily my favourite product, so I’d suggest trying that first if you can’t afford the entire range.
Have you tried this product range before? What did you think? Do you also have fine hair?
