Bumble and Bumble is an awesome haircare brand that is sadly not readily available in South Africa, but you can literally get it at any Sephora, department store or haircare webshop in the EU, UK and US. Even though it is not available in SA I would still like to tell you guys about this product, just in case you have the opportunity to purchase it via a kind beauty mule or put it on your wish list for when you visit a Sephora branch again. The brand is famous for making incredible haircare products and it is certainly worth investigating if you have never heard about their products. I have been using the Bumble and Bumble Don’t Blow It (H)air Styler for fine hair for a long time and feel it deserves a rave-review spot on my blog.
Bumble and Bumble Don’t Blow It (H)air Styler
Product: The Bumble and Bumble Don’t Blow It (H)air Styler for fine hair is a light-weight hair cream that adds volume and bounce to your hair on days when you feel like air drying your hair. There are two options available: one for fine hair and one for coarser/thicker hair.
Packaging: The Bumble and Bumble Don’t Blow It (H)air Styler has a practical plastic tube packaging making it perfect for travels or to pop in your beach bag. Both options are available in full and travel size.
How to use it: Work a small amount of product through towel-dried brushed hair. Style and off you go.
Does it work? I think we are all familiar with what the potential disaster that air drying your hair can be and this miracle potion solves that problem. Although I have straight hair and one would think it will air dry just fine, you would sadly be wrong. If I let my hair air dry without any styling products I end up with very flat, almost dirty-looking hair and that certainly ain’t a charming look. The Bumble and Bumble Don’t Blow It (H)air Styler adds lots of volume and bounce to my hair and it looks perfectly styled when the hair is eventually dry. It also adds texture without making your hair crunchy thus make it so much easier to style your hair. I don’t let my hair air dry too often, but have since found out what a magical blowout cream the Bumble and Bumble Don’t Blow It (H)air Styler doubles up as. I use it nearly every single time as a pre-blowout cream and it is simply awesome! Have I mentioned it smells utterly delicious too? Even when used with a hairdryer it doesn’t make my hair greasy at all and I get my normal 3-4-days between washes.
Price: It is certainly not the cheapest hair cream on the block, but it works so tremendously well and you literally only use the tiniest amount. I think if you consider how many uses you can get out of the full sized product, it is excellent value for money. I would also rather pay a little bit more for a product that actually works than to pay less for an ineffective product. The travel size (60ml) retails for €15/$16 and the full size (150ml) for €30/$31. The travel size is obviously great for traveling or if you are still a bit sceptical about the product, but the full size is far better value in terms of what you get.
What did I think? If it is not already clear: I am completely obsessed with the Bumble and Bumble Don’t Blow It (H)air Styler and since I discovered it I have never been without it. It works brilliantly both as an air dry product or as a blowout cream. As you can see from the picture I use the option for fine hair, but if you would like to have a look at the option for coarser or thicker hair then you can click here.
Will I buy this product again? Yes please! I already stocked up!
