The Review: Bumble and Bumble Thickening Mousse and Cream Contour

When the Bumble and Bumble Thickening Full Form Mousse and Cream Contour fell into my little mits I wasn’t sure there was a real need for them in my routine, but fast forward a hair wash and we have a real love affair going on here people!

After giving my hair a good old rinse with my shampoo of choice (the past few washes this has been the Surf range – such a Bumble and Bumble ho) I run a generous amount of the shampoo through the roots of my damp hair and a little on the ends to give things a little lift and texture. After blowdrying I give everything a quite ruffle with my fingers, take a quick look in the mirror and give my mop the nod of approval.

In the morning my hair is still thick but can loose a little volume after a good nights sleep. So I’ve taken to massaging a small amount of the Cream Contour into the roots of my hair to accentuate the bed head look – this makes rolling out of bed so much easier, and is far better for your hair and more natural than back combing.

Although my hair is naturally curly, and isn’t overly lacking when it comes to texture, it’s still pretty damn flat and very fine so products like this are a dream come true. If you have similar hair woe’s and are looking to invest in some new products then these are well worth the money.

    Mousses are those products I am usually super-scared of. It's so 1995 isn't it? I literally remember my mum going crazy with it. Let me just say it was not a good look. My hair is very fine and it often falls flat, so I might give this go. Thanks on clarifying how you use it!

    I love Bumble and Bumble haircare and these products sound amazing. I much prefer cream products though as mousses are apparently really drying, which I don't need on my naturally frizzy/coarse hair! I just bought Semisumo, which I'm loving for that messy bed head look and taming my frizz. I have really thick hair, but my roots become flat quite quickly. I may give this a go in the future. 🙂

    This range sounds great! I'm quite the Bumble and Bumble ho myself. I recently had my hair cut at one of their salons and it was one of the best experiences.
