Questions & Answers for Bumble and bumble White Hair Powder

Question
Is this product safe to be in baggage checked at the airport?
Upon ordering a larger one today-I noticed that it could only be sent ground service-which made me wonder (since I will be flying shortly and DO NOT want to be without it) is it unsafe to be in an
airplane baggage compartment-they would never allow it to pass in
my handbag. Thank you.

I purchased the small bottle and put it in my carry on, however, I had to do a leg in a small jet and they took my carry on into the checked baggage area. I did notice when I tried to use it again that it took a minute for it to start. At first I thought I'd ruined it, but after a few sprays, it restarted.

I have checked it before without any problems. Buy the small travel size if in doubt, leave the larger one for home use.

It's just a normal aeresol can, not a liquid. Should be fine in carry on. It may get too cold in the hold where they put checked baggage (and delivery items) for the product to remain in good condition.

You can carry the travel sized version in your carry on because of the pressurized cabin but the reason you can't have it in your checked luggage is because it's an aerosol, so if something punctures it, it can explode.

I really don't know the answer but I would not risk it. There are plenty of non-aerosol products that are better so would recommend them over this one. I like the Blandi version and baby powder works pretty well too.

I actually posted the question but when I didn't get an answer I called the wonderful beauty adviser and got my answer. My concern was since I saw ground shipping only I wondered if I could bring it on the plane (re:my next trip) because I cannot be without it-totally hooked to the product-and luckily the answer was not a problem-the note about ground shipping only had nothing to do with the product exploding in the baggage dept. of the plane.

No, definitely not. I am blonde and the white looked bad in my hair. There is no way I would use it in brown hair!

I would not use the white powder. I think you could do the blonde version. It goes on almost dirty blonde / light brown and will fade. I have blonde hair and the blonde was too dark - I needed the white.

Hope this helps!

Use the "blondish." I am also a brunette and have found that this matches perfectly with my hair.

The white powder will leave a white residue and might look like dandruff or something on your hair. I would recommend trying the brown powder but I have never used that color, so as the other person said, maybe be cautious of staining your forehead.

You could, just make sure not to use too much. Also know that if you use brown powder it could temporarily stain your forehead.

Question
Can this be used on dark hair?
I have very dark brown, almost black hair. I've read the reviews for the black hair powder and everyone said it was too messy. I can use the Oscar Blandi dry shampoo (which is white) and it doesn't change my hair color. I like it, but I'm looking for something to give me more volume and texture.

Yes! You can use this on dark hair. Spray onto your roots and brush it into the hair.

i have dark brown hair and it works just fine, the stylist actually encouraged this vs the colored versions, eventhough i have a good share of grays. She said that it was a lot milder on clothes too. I spray it close to my roots, and not directly on where my hair parts on top. If i spray too much, i just gently brush it or finger comb it, to help disperse the powder.

i would use the blondish color for you. This could be used on dark hair. My friend with medium to dark brown hair tried it and I could not tell. However, it may make the roots ashy. I would recommend using the blondish color for you. It wont be as dark as the other or as light as this.

I don't know about using it on dark hair, I just know that the "blonde" color was too dark for my champagne color blonde hair.

I would say no because this one is shock white. The dark one would work best for you.

Question
how strong is the smell?
As a new mom, I don't have the time or the desire to wash, blow and curl my hair every day. I would love to have a dry shampoo that will keep my hair looking fresher, longer. I tried one years ago but the smell hurt my head. I'm sensitive to things like scented candles so having something that smelly literally on my head made me miserable. Can you suggest one/does a dry shampoo exist that does a god job without a (strong) smell?

I am also sensitive to scents and this one has very little scent when you put it on and once it dries, has no scent at all. Good luck!

it does have an odor when you spray it, but not a lingering odor and not overpowering.

I don't think this one has a smell at all. I highly recommend it! Maybe go to the store to try it first to make sure. One thing I hate about other dry shampoos are the gross smells they have. Bumble & Bumble has never bothered me and is by far the best hair powder I have ever used.

Question
what color hair powder to use?
I have a mix of dark brown and gray hair (salt and pepper?). It is very fine & thin on the crown of my head. What color of dry hair powder should I use to give volume & hide my scalp?

If you want it to look more on the grey side, the white will do that. It does leave white color when you spray. I have not tried the dark powders because i'm really light blonde.

Try them in store and see what you like :)

I've used white powder and I have quite dark hair. Its not quite black, but definitely a dark brunette.

The brown powders work quite well I'm sure, but i was always worried they'd end up on my clothes or sheets. With the white powders, it seems like there is very little risk of damaging fabrics.
