Bumble and Bumble is a brand that I’ve heard so much about from other bloggers and the hype around it has been phenomenal over the past years too! The simple yet quirky packaging really stands out amongst the ‘serious’ packaging of the competitors, so needless to say I was really looking forward to trying the Bumble & Bumble Mending Shampoo and Conditioner.
Having worked on countless fashion shoots, catwalks, and with some of the most recognised celebrities in the world, Bumble and Bumble have become synonymous with trend-driven haircare. Not only that, but their products have won many awards and are praised by the beauty industry, so I was super excited to finally give the brand a go myself.
What Is My Hair Type?
What Does The Bumble And Bumble Mending Duo Aim To Do?
Designed to combat dry and damaged hair, the Bumble and Bumble Wear and Care Mending Shampoo and Conditioner are a gentle cleansing and conditioning system, which offer nourishment and hydration to thirsty hair. They don’t strip colour, which is great for my hair as I want it to remain really vibrant and shiny. As I have used countless styling tools and colouring agents over the years, I am glad that this duo has specially been formulated for chemically treated hair.
The key ingredient for the Mending Shampoo and Conditioner are Tocopheryl Acetate, also known as Vitamin E, which helps to protect, hydrate and condition the hair. Pantethine repairs and strengthens the hair follicle, while Creatine is also in the formula for energy-promotion. Alongside these key ingredients you will also find a lipid blend consisting of Linoleic Acid, Squalane and Phospholipids, which all work together to replenish lost moisture, increase shine and repair the overall condition of your hair. Got to be a winner, right?
Review Of The Wear And Care Collection
I really enjoyed using both the products as they left my hair feeling really soft in the shower. Both the shampoo and conditioner smell quite neutral, which is great for anyone with allergy sensitivities. However, I would have liked there to be a faint scent, as I like my hair to smell gorgeous!
The shampoo from the Bumble & Bumble Mending duo lathers up really nicely and leaves your hair feeling cleansed and slightly conditioned after the first use. As mentioned, the scent isn’t anything to write home about, but the results from the shampoo alone were impressive and left my hair soft. Following with the conditioner, I found this further enhanced the softness of my hair when still wet, however when I came to dry and style my hair I found there was nothing too exciting about the results. Although my hair felt softer and healthier, I didn’t feel blown away by the finished look. As usual though, I will continue to use these products more to see if there are any longer term benefits of the products. With all the great ingredients in the formula, there is no doubt there will be something giving my hair a good nurture, despite the not-so-immediate results.
