You all know I love anything to do with big voluminous hair. Whether it be volumising mousses, hair sprays, treatments, serums, shampoos you name it if it has the word volume in it I want to try it! Alongside the need for volume I also wanted to try out some products from the highly recommended Bumble and Bumble range. Luckily I had a gift voucher to splurge at Space.NK (my haul can be found here) and this Thickening Serum (£21.50) caught my eye. It is a pricey little number but teamed with the fact that it says on the bottle that it really does work and that I had my trusty voucher in toe I went ahead and picked a bottle up.
This is a treatment oil that is meant to help fortify and thicken each strand of hair. I have been using this twice a day- once at night at once in the morning and each time I pump 3 pumps worth into my hand. Once I’ve tried not to spill the oil out of my hand I then run it through my hair focusing on the roots. Then with whatever is left in my hand I run it through the tips of my hair.
As you can see the oil is very runny! It almost didn’t want to be photographed :P The instructions on the bottle say that you can use this in damp or dry hair. I mainly use this in dry has as when my hair is damp I’m busy putting in a handful of other volumising products! The big question is does this product really work? When I use this product I do feel like I can see a noticeable difference. My hair feels thicker and fuller and visibly there seems to be a lot more life to my hair. What’s great about this product is that as it is an oil it doesn’t leave any residue or build up in your hair. You can pop it in at night or the morning and the only difference you will see is plumper hair!
The price tag does put me off a bit and makes me hesitant to run out a repurchase it but this combined with all the other hair products I have been using at the moment seems to be working magic. My hair is less thin, less prone to flyaways and seems to have more hold and volume. I think I will see how long this bottle lasts for – but so far after almost a months worth I seem to have a fair amount left. The Bumble and Bumble Thickening Serum – it really does work!
