I don't know why, but this winter has played utter havoc with my hair. It hasn't even been that cold, but it has been chronically dry for weeks now and styling was verging on a total impossibility, due to the fly-away-ness of it.
The perms I have to add texture & body obviously dry my hair to a certain extent, but that's always been manageable. Recently, I've been finding it harder to form 'natural' curls, with the perm just looking frizzy and if I left it straight, it would be sticking to my face & generally just being a big ol' ball of static. It was getting so bad, I was using a giant blob of intensive hair masks each day instead of a regular conditioner, just to try & keep it under control!
I wouldn't normally spend £45 on shampoo & conditioner but I was desperate! My hairdresser used to use Bumble & Bumble and my hair always looked incredible, so when I was in John Lewis the other day, I bit the bullet & picked up the Quenching range.
When I smelled it in the shop, I was not impressed, but once it was on my noggin, the smell was light, fresh; a bit apple-y without a fruity chemical overload like Herbal Essences.
From the first use, my hair has been transformed. Unlike other 'intense' products I've used, my hair still blow-dries full of body and doesn't freak out when I take my red-hot GHDs to it, to smooth the ends. Perfect! My only concern is that I will not be able to live without these 2 little bottles from now on & it will cost me a fortune!
I struggled to find a UK Bumble & Bumble site, which is why the link is to the US, but it is available in-store at John Lewis.
