Beauty Notes: Bumble and Bumble Super Rich Conditioner

Posted by EZE, Thursday, April 24, 2008 2:08 PM (Eastern)

I noticed there haven't been any Bumble and Bumble reviews on this blog, and I thought that was a real shame. B&B is a treat for me to use. It is the one hair care line that I have consistently used and that has provided a real turnaround for my hair.

I have a full head of very course, thick, wavy, dry hair. It has previously been a nightmare for me to deal with, and even now, the waves will only ever do what they want to do. For a long time, I've had a very short haircut similar to the way Winona Ryder wore her hair in the 90s. It suited me, and having almost no hair was the only way I could figure out how to deal with it.

After having tried Sumotech with great results, I picked up a bottle of Super Rich Conditioner. It is the single conditioner that gave me results with the first use. My hair was significantly softer, and after the first two or three weeks of use, it was the healthiest and most nourished that it's ever been. I truly never thought my hair could be this soft. I think all the beauty articles are right (this time): the more you spend on your hair, the better the results will be.

There are several reasons why this conditioner trumps every other one I've used. It contains no silicones, which make my hair lovely and smooth, but even drier than before. Silicones are the equivalent of two steps forward, three steps back. They are the wolf in sheep's clothing. It's an incredibly rich, thick formula. I cannot abide by a runny or milky conditioner. Every single conditioner with a thin consistency has only dried out my hair more. I think the fact that it only has a few ingredients in it makes a difference, too. As with skin, hair doesn't need to be pummeled into submission with thirty different kinds of alcohols and parabens. It only needs a few ingredients that actually work.

Super Rich contains shea butter. I can't really say whether that's what's working for me or not. I've never tried any other hair products with shea butter to compare it with.

I will also say the reason I started using Bumble and Bumble products to begin with is the packaging. I'm a huge design fan. When given the choice, I would gladly decorate my bathroom with beautifully packaged products. B&B's products look something like a cross of sumi-e and urban minimalism. They're right for now, though if the packaging isn't redesigned in a few years, it will probably look passe.

Cool. I've been curious about this product for a few years now, but I never took the plunge, because it's so expensive. Though I hear it's much more cost-effective when you buy it by the liter. Have you tried the Gentle Shampoo?

I haven't tried it. I have tried the Seaweed shampoo and it dried my hair out. Creme de Coco (?) shampoo is all right, though.

I don't think the price is too bad. It's not great - $20 for 8 oz. - but it's a concentrated formula. The liters are definitely a better deal. They're just so big that I find them vaguely intimidating. I start panicking: "When will I ever use this much conditioner?" :)
