Bumble And Bumble Invisible Oil And The Hairdresser's Trio*

My hair goes through phases and at the moment it's going through a rough patch. I don't know whether it because I've been a bit under the weather or  whether it's because I've been constantly changing my routine in attempt to use products up but it's thinning, falling out, difficult to style and it needs some serious TLC. So in attempt to give my hair the love it deserves I stripped my routine back to basics and I've been using a few products from Bumble And Bumble.

For the last month and a bit I've used nothing else on my hair bar top salon brand Bumble And Bumble's, The Hairdresser's Trio

This cute travel or trial size pack contains 3 products from the Bumble And Bumble Bb Hairdressers Invisible Oil range - a 60ml Sulfate Free Shampoo, a 60ml Conditioner, and a 60ml Heat / UV Protective Primer All of the products in the Invisible Oil range contain 6 lightweight, nourishing and moisturising oils, including Grapeseed, Safflower Seed, Sweet Almond, Macadamia, Argan and Coconut oil

Bumble And Bumble Bb Hairdresser's Invisible Oil Sulfate Free Shampoo - 60ml

Designed for coarse, dry and thick hair, this shampoo is infused with moisturising oils and is sulfate free making it ideal if you have sensitive skin or a sensitive scalp. It's designed to soften, tame, de-frizz, detangle and protect the hair.

It has quite a thick texture and it's pearlised white in colour. All of the products in the Invisible Oil range have the same pleasant scent, it's an almost nutty, fruity, coconut aroma that comes from all of the natural oils.

A small amount of shampoo goes a long way, and like most sulfate free shampoos, you just add more water to the shampoo to increase the foam. This shampoo produces a nice creamy lather that rinses away easily, and leaves their hair feeling clean, and nourished.

I really liked this shampoo and on some occasions this was all I used. It left the hair feel moisturised and if you have normal hair this shampoo could be all that you'd need. The full 250ml size of this shampoo retails at £23 which isn't cheap, but in my opinion it's a worthwhile investment. If that's too much to shell at once then the 60ml size that you can see is available for around £7.50.

Bumble And Bumble Bb Hairdresser's Invisible Oil Conditioner - 60ml

If your hair needs a bit of extra attention though then the next step is to use a good conditioner, and the pack that I got also included the corresponding Invisible Oil Conditioner. Especially for dry, coarse and brittle hair, again it contains the 6 featherlight oils, and it's designed  to help soften, silken, tame, de-frizz, detangle and protect the hair.

Packaged in squeezy tube, it's white in appearance and has thick, and creamy consistency, and exactly the same fragrance as the shampoo. Despite it's thickness and density it spreads easily through the hair, and after leaving it for a minute or two it rinses out really easily with warm water. It sounds strange but when it's rinsed out the hair almost feels thicker and plumper. It was also left smooth and silky, with very few knots and tangles.

Again I really liked this product x The texture was lovely and creamy, and it surprised me how easily that it rinsed out and how nice my hair felt afterwards. Although it isn't advertised as being a thickening product my hair definitely felt thicker and fuller when I'd used it but it didn't feel weighed down, lank or heavy. Again this isn't cheap, and a 200ml tube retails at £25 but a little goes a long way, and you can also get the 60ml tube that you can see here for £8.50 if you want to try it or you just feel as though your hair needs a treat.

Bumble And Bumble Bb Hairdresser's Invisible Oil Heat / UV Protective Primer - 60ml

The final product in The Hairdresser's Trio is this fabulous, multi use spray, which again is crammed full of those 6 vital oils. Created to help soften, de-tangle, de-frizz, tame fly aways, ease styling and protect against breakage, heat-styling and UV damage, this is the only spray bar maybe a hair spray or a dry shampoo that you will ever need.

With the same nutty, citrus, coconut scent, in its simplest terms this is a leave in conditioner or heat protection spray that you can either use on damp hair before blow drying or on dry hair before straightening or curling. You can also use during the day to protect your hair from UV damage whether your on holiday or even if your hair is feeling a bit dry and frazzled.

In a pump action bottle, it has a very light almost water like texture but it does seem to make a difference. I've predominantly been using this as a heat protection spray on dry hair before I've used my tongs or my straighteners and I really think it's helped. My ends especially don't feel as frazzled and there definitely seems to be a lot less frizz. I've also been using it as a detangler on damp hair, and again I think that it's given the hair a nice moisture boost and it's got rid of any residual knots and tangles. At a push I think that you could also use this as a refresher and revitaliser on drier hair, and for when your hair needs a moisture boost without weighing it down.

This one isn't cheap either but I've been using my 60ml bottle for over a month now and I've barely put a dent in it. I can't find this 60ml size online anymore but the 250ml bottle retails at around £20.50.

Okay this isn't the cheapest hair care range on the market by any means but what you are getting are good quality products that are used everyday in a salon environment and do what they promise. My hair still isn't great but it's getting there. These are the only products that I've used on my hair over the last month or so and I've definitely seen an improvement in both the condition and the texture. It is a considered purchase but if your hair needs some TLC, after your summer holidays or after illness then the Invisible Oil range could be something to try. Unfortunately I can't find this particular kit online any more but some of the smaller sizes are available directly from the Bumble & Bumble website and from various retailers including Look Fantastic and Escentual, and of course you can take the plunge and buy the full sizes from the likes of Boots and John Lewis. Does your hair need some TLC at the moment? Let me know and we can bemoan our bad hair days together x Thanks for reading x
