Beauty Bite: Bumble & Bumble Full Form Mousse

Just a quick morsel about my new favourite hair product!

I have very thick but fine hair, and as a result, getting any kid of long lasting volume is very tricky – the hair is too fine to be able to hold itself up at the roots! (At least, my gorgeous and charming hair guy, Philip, tells me!)

I’ve tried hundreds of shampoos and mousses and treatments to get some volume, but for the most part, although I achieve volume initially, it’s fallen flat again by the end of the day.

So, when I purchased Bumble and Bumble’s Full Form Mousse, I wasn’t expecting any miracles. But oh, what a wonderful surprise!

I always blow dry with my fingers to ruffle up the hair at the roots and finish up blow-drying upside down (I look a fool I’m sure…) brushing the hair down the wrong way and this does go some way to achieving some volume, but when I added the product, the results were incredible!

The directions instruct you to work the product through damp hair, starting at the roots. It’s a great, thick mousse and you really only need a very small amount, just a palm full for all the hair really. Working though damp hair thoroughly and then blow drying, you are left with lightweight and very volumous hair, and there’s no nasty smell or residue afterwards! Hair is still silky soft and smooth and I don’t find it makes my hair greasy or heavy any quicker than sans-product!

Not only does it have a long lasting all-day effect upon my hair, but it actually lasts for days – I only wash my hair about every three days (When it needs it really, I don’t like to wash too often as it’s not good for the natural oils) and I never need to reapply the mousse, it stays strong and effective between washes!

I did find, however, that if you apply a little (or a lot) too much, you can feel it when hair is dry and it makes your fingers a bit dusty when running them through your hair – I play with my hair ALL THE TIME, and if there’s too much mousse, you can feel it coming off in your fingers and it’s not nice, but if you are sparing with the mousse, it gives the volume and none of the residue!

The smell is great too – not a harsh chemical spray that is reminicent of nasty cheap hairspray or salon treatments, but it’s a subtle, sort of floral scent that’s really gentle and nice!

IMG_0484I would definitely recommend Bumble & Bumble Full Form Mousse to anyone with heavy, flat hair, or even people who are just looking for that added wow-factor from really big hair! It lasts for days and just a quick ruffle with the fingers is enough to renew the volume and height and keep it fresh!
