Bb Color Gloss

January 28, 2018

High shine is a must if you have natural black or color treated hair. Lacklustre black strands are dull and uninspiring. After my botched hair dye job in 2016, my hair was damaged beyond repair. Any treatments I applied just ensured that there was no further damage, but there was nothing that would bring my hair back to the healthy, shiny black bob it was before my attempt to go blonde. I'm certain my hair is healthier a year and half later, cause it's simply grown out. Now I can focus on maintaining a healthy mane and super shinny strands..

When Bumble and Bumble (my favorite hair product line) launched a line of Bb. Color Gloss in warm blonde, cool blonde, brunette, universal red and clear - I immediately had to have this enhancing hair gloss. I do like some Bumble and Bumble products better than others, but this luxury hair brand rarely disappoints. 

I purchased the Bb. Color Gloss in clear and had HUGE expectations. You apply the product to dry hair and leave on for 20 minutes. Rinse, and go about your normal hair care routine. The scent is strange to say the least, but it is a color treatment (to all you people hating on the smell). The solution appears to have sparkles in it? Yeah, I had little sparkles on my face, along the hairline. Of course, you're gonna rinse and wash your hair, so the sparkles are useless. The process was easy, but the results lacked lustre. 

My hair was shiny, but it's always shiny AND I was expecting something miraculous to happen. I was hoping the sun would reflect off my hair and cause people to look away! I'm a little disappointed. My hair did however feel incredibly soft and clean. As many of you know, super clean hair is not ideal - it's too soft, hard to style and typically lays flat. I didn't do anything else different that day, so I'm going to assume that the Bb. Color Gloss was the culprit.

I should point out that I applied the clear luminous hair gloss to already shiny black hair, so maybe my opinion should be taken with a grain a salt. I would imagine that if you have red hair, this stuff may be life changing. Blonde, red, pink, silver - these are all vibrant shades that require attention. An instant lustre pick-me-up between salons visits may keep your strands looking brilliant. 


Another great hair product to keep your strands looking fresh and vibrant is the Bumble and Bumble Bb. Color Stick. This twist-up, crayon-like color stick is the perfect root touch-up product. The formula is water resistant - don't worry about color running down your face, neck and clothes if you get caught in the rain. The stick is compact and takes a little while to cover your roots (or grays), but is great for travel and on-the-go touch ups.

The Bumble and Bumble Bb. Color Stick is available in five natural shades - blonde, dark blonde, brown, red and black. There are four limited edition statement hues - Ballet (pale pink), Lilac (purple-ish-blue), Flamingo (fuchsia), and Pacific (a vibrant blue). The highly-pigmented color sticks are a great temporary solution to roots and grays or just enhancing your color with vibrant streaks. I also have an uneven hairline, and use the Bb. Color Stick to fill-in my fine hair for a full look.

Gentle, Rich & Nourishing

October 02, 2017


It's been fifteen months, and I'm still recovering from my botched hair-dye job! Imma spare you the rant and just say, I tried to go from black to blonde and it was a total fail. In the process of repairing my strands, I've spent countless dollars on masks, and the famed Olaplex. In the past few months, I finally feel like my hair has come to a point where hydrating masks and repair products are no longer necessary - it's all about letting my hair grow now..  

I do however like to boost my strands moisture once a week with super nourishing Bumble and Bumble Gentle Shampoo and Rich Conditioner. The shampoo gently cleanses, hydrates and leaves your hair silky and shiny. The Rich conditioner restores luster and bounce. These products combined leave your hair feeling super-nourished and crazy soft. 



Bumble and Bumble just released another amazing hair product -  Prêt-à-powder Très Invisible (nourishing) Dry Shampoo. If you're a Bb fan you know that the original Prêt-à-powder is equal parts dry shampoo, style extender and volumizer. The original comes in a powder format, smells nice and absorbs oil quickly. The powder is tricky though - you gotta make sure it's absorbed and not visible (especially on dark colored hair). In comes the new and improved Prêt-à-powder Dry Shampoo. It cleanses roots and extends your style. It is practically invisible and nourishes your hair. The scent is strong, but diminishes quickly. I'd rather the original powder scent in the new Prêt-à-powder dry shampoo, but Bumble and Bumble didn't consult me on the one! LOVE this product.

Hydrate Your Hair

July 03, 2017

Sunshine, pool water, salt water.. Your hair needs extra hydration during the summer months. My hair was damaged beyond repair last summer (botched dye job). I consider myself an expert on hydrating hair masks. These are my favorite super hydrators..

IGK Prenup Instant Spray Hair Mask is AMAZING! The 360 aerosol spray allows for easy application. The scent is delicious, and your hair will feel nourished and silky after just one minute. I use this mask every time I wash my strands. Give your hair a good scrub, apply conditioner and rinse immediately, then apply the Prenup hair splash mask, leave for minute and rinse. This hydrating hair mask is a MUST HAVE!


Bumble and Bumble is the Balm-To-Oil Pre-Shampoo Masque saved my hair, and is worth a second mention. Take a big dollop, rub your hands together to melt the product and apply to dry hair, section by section (dry hair absorbs better than wet hair). Leave for a minimum of twenty minutes. This super hydrating masque contains the Hairdresser's Invisible Oil six signature oils - argon, macadamia nut, coconut, safflower seed, grape seed oil and sweet almond. The signature scent is subtle and sweet. I apply this masque once a week, and it has made a HUGE difference in my hair. I've been struggling with severely damaged hair for a year, and only saw a significant improvement after using this product.


I purchased Skinny & Co. Coconut Oil in the OH SO TEMPTING mini section at Sephora. The lineup at Sephora is a trap - you're surrounded by mini's that cost much more than the full-size products (based on cost per ounce). Admittedly, this is my favorite section at Sephora. I can no longer find Skinny & Co. Coconut Oil on Sephora's site, so I'm not sure if Sephora carries this product anymore. Hmm.. 

I love this stuff. It's a multi-purpose coconut oil that hydrates your hair and body. Like the Bumble and Bumble Balm-To-Oil Pre-Shampoo Masque, this product melts in your hands. Scoop out a big dollop, allow it to melt and apply to the ends of your hair. You can leave the oil on for as long as you want. The scent is ok (natural-like). You can use this oil to sweeten your beverages, replace your go-to cooking oil, and apply as a moisturizer to your hair and skin.

Hairdresser’s Invisible Oil

June 16, 2017

Bumble and Bumble Hairdresser's Invisible Oil Cleansing Oil-Crème Duo is a super hydrating-cleanser that will leave your hair silky and soft. The dual-chamber disperses the moisturizing cream from the inner chamber, and a low-foam cleanser from the outer chamber. It's a two-in-one super hydrating wash. This product is great for anyone with dry, damaged strands, flyaways and frizz. I use this Cleansing Oil-Crème Duo every third wash. Hairdresser's Invisible Oil signature scent is coconut(ish) and subtle. Along with every other product by Bumble and Bumble, I LOVE this Cleansing Oil-Crème Duo.


Another amazing new product from Bumble and Bumble is the Balm-To-Oil Pre-Shampoo Masque. This stuff saved my hair. Take a big dollop, rub your hands together to melt the product and apply to dry hair, section by section (dry hair absorbs better than wet hair). Leave for a minimum of twenty minutes.

The signature scent is delicious. I apply this masque once a week, and it has made a HUGE difference in my hair. I've been struggling with severely damaged hair for a year, and only saw a significant improvement after using this product. A MUST HAVE.


Bumble and Bumble Hairdresser's Invisible Oil is my favorite haircare collection. I've been using the shampoo, conditioner and oil for years. Each time a new addition is released, I purchase it, and am never disappointed. The product line includes - shampoo, conditioner, primer (great for detangling wet hair), oil (super lightweight), the Cleansing Oil-Crème Duo, pre-shampoo masque, and Dry Oil Finishing Spray. I use all of these products regularly.


I've tried many other brands over the years, but keep going back to Bumble and Bumble. Many of the products are also available in travel size (love that). If you don't wanna invest in the full-sized, opt for the travel size (I'm sure you'll upgrade to the larger versions).

Marlies Möller

April 25, 2016
I really like my 'mini' Marlies Möller Essential Hair and Scalp Brush, and assumed all the styling brushes in this line would be great. So, with big expectations, I purchased three full-sized Marlies Möller hair brushes.

I was really anticipating great results from the Thermo Volume Ceramic Styling Brush and kinda feel let down. It styles ok (like most ceramic brushes) and matches my set, but the squared handle is impossible to swiftly rotate while you blow-dry. After the first use, my hand and wrist hurt. I'm fairly good with a round ceramic brush, but this handle just slows me down. 

The All Around Hair Brush (pictured center) claims to remove residue left by products and cleanse your dry hair. I have oily hair and was hoping this would aid in my mission to wash less often. The directions say to brush your hair in all directions, morning and night. Does it cleanse your hair? I don't think so! It does however feel nice on your scalp; like a 'bristle scalp massage'. I wouldn't recommend using it in the AM - it causes major static. 

The Hair & Scalp Massage Brush is the full-sized version of the 'mini' Essential Hair & Scalp brush I posted about a few months ago. The larger brush detangles easily and is an overall great paddle brush. These brushes look nice (I love the wooden handle), but there are much better hair brushes out there.

Want a Smooth Shave?

March 15, 2015
Visit your nearest drug store and pick up hair conditioner for dry hair - the thicker the conditioner, the better. Or, use your regular conditioner (thats one less product to buy). Apply to your legs (and anywhere else you might require smooth, hairless skin) and shave as usual. The creamy layer of conditioner delivers intense moisturizer to your skin allowing for a smooth shave, no nicks and no razor-burn. I've tried a variety of shave creams over the years, but I always go back to hair conditioner.
