Adding texture to your hair

Ever since I can remember I have been trying to add texture to my hair. My hair is the flattest of the flat and the straightest of the straight. Lots of girls wish for poker straight hair but I wish for the exact opposite and those with some texture and thickness are really lucky!

I recently realised that I had built a bit of a collection of texturising/thickening products and so thought I'd write a dedicated post to them. The first products to make the cut were three Bumble & Bumble samples I've picked up during the past year or so. These aren't particularly new and they're only sample sizes but I'm really surprised to have three of this brand that I really like as it's usually so hit and miss for me.

Bumble & Bumble Texture Hair (un)dressing creme. 60ml. £10.
This is similar to a thick serum you work through damp hair. It's best to build this product up, starting with a little, working it through and adding more as per what you prefer. Fab for adding a bit of volume and ideal for using alongside the other Bumble & Bumble products.

Bumble & Bumble Thickening Hairspray. 50ml. £7.50
I picked this sample up as a magazine freebie and it's got to be the best freebie I've ever used. It's lasted an absolute age and I use it on a regular basis. My hair is very fine and after a few sprays of this onto damp hair, it leaves it feeling impressively thick and much easier to work with and add volume into. The spray itself is very fine and doesn't leave the hair feeling sticky or straw like.

Bumble & Bumble Thickening Full Form Mousse. 40ml. £9.50
This is a new purchase for me. My local Boots store has just started stocking miniature sizes of Bumble & Bumble products. I guess they're trialling them out in the hope of stocking the full-size range. I really hope they sell well as I'd love to have the entire range to choose from. However, £9.50 for a sample is a little steep if you ask me. Luckily I'd just got paid and was feeling rather flush so I picked this up. Again, this leaves the hair feeling extremely thick and unlike many mousses I've used it doesn't leave the hair feeling hard and sticky.

The quest for thickening and volumising hair products will be an everlasting one for me. I like to mix it up a bit and don't like to stick with the same products all the time. These three are staples of my collection and while I'm not using others, I'll be picking these up for sure. They compliment each other very well and using all three creates a really textured and volumised look.

Have you tried any Bumble & Bumble products? What are your faves?

  2. I got the thickening hairspray with a magazine and for some reason I just could not get it to work properly, for some reason it made my hair super sticky :/ x

  5. I've not tried Bumble & Bumble but always hear good things about them. Have you tried the L'Oreal Fibrology range? I've been using the shampoo, conditioner and mask in rotation and it definitely boosts the volume in my hair xx

    1. I have tried the Fibrology range and it was good at first but then I found it didn't really do anything to my hair, which was annoying!

  6. I've always wondered about this shampoo, but I already have thick hair so often opt for something else. My fave Bb product at the moment is the Creme De Coco hair mask, it's smells so good! Thanks for your comment on my blog, Cherry! It's an interesting question, the serum firms your skin so in theory, it should help keep dimpled marks/cellulite at bay (or at least prolong it until they appear). For prevention, I would use something a bit lighter like the NIVEA Q10 gel cream (feels nicer on skin and is a bit cheaper) x
