Questions & Answers for Bumble and bumble Grooming Creme

How does everyone use this product?
How do you use it? i.e. how much, on damp or dry hair, air dry or blow dry, and what kind of hair do you have (fine, medium, course etc.). I have found that it works better for me when I use it close to when my hair is almost dry (some parts, usually my ends, are wet and others are dry) and it softly defines my curls, but then my hair drinks up the product and I get a bit of frizz. =/ Thanks in advance for responses!

I use this on almost-dry hair, about a quarter sized blob if not more. I smooth through from mid-shaft to ends, and twist into 4 little buns while it dries the rest of the way. When I take my hair down, I have beautiful waves with great texture and separation. I also use this to re-shape curls the next day, or I'll smooth on almost-dry hair and leave it straight to dry. My hair dries pretty straight on it's own, but it will be a bit frizzy and poofy, and the ends of my layers flip out. This helps to maintain a sleeker, yet not too polished, look.

I use a very small amount on dry hair- I always air dry my hair overnight- I do not even own a blow dryer!
For work, usually after I put my hair up into a chignon or ponytail I smooth a bit across the areas I get flyways.
When I'm going out I like to wear my hair down. I usually flat iron my hair for this and then put a little of the cream through my hair to make it smooth and shiny.

I have long hair and I use about a nickel-sized dollop on towel-dried hair and let it air dry, but blow drying works great too!

answer 5
I have thick, wavy, nearly shoulder-length hair. After I shower, I towel-dry my hair, add a tiny amount of the grooming creme, comb it through, then let it dry. No blow-dryer needed. I tend to play with my hair a lot throughout the day, running my hands through it and whatnot, and the creme keeps it nice and shiny and frizz-free, but still touchable.

I have fine hair that has some perm in it still. I use a small amount on slightly damp hair - usually after using a curl definer. I don't usually blow dry, so the grooming creme adds hold while my hair dries completely. I followed the suggestion of "experimenting" - meaning that I mess my hair up a bit as I'm working it in. Gives great texture without any crunchiness! I hope this helps you! Good grooming!

I have very fine hair and I use it on my hair after it's fully dried. Just a little bit that I rub on my hands and then lightly run over my hair. I do sometimes also use it to seperate a little when I go out- again just a little on dry hair.

I use it when my hair is almost dry also. I then sort of mold my hair the way I want it. I am going to try it when it is wet also, but love the way it works when my hair is almost dry.

I use it on damp hair that was washed the night before. I smooth a small dab through my hair, comb it in with a wide-toothed comb, then blow dry. I don't have to turn my head upside down first so it's full, just blow dry and it's a perfect bob.

I use the leave-in conditioner first, the the grooming cream and usually partially dry with a difuser. I found it's best on damp, not really wet hair, but not too dry either. I usually put on my makeup while my hair is wrapped in a towel. When I'm ready to style, if my end are a little too dry, I spritz with a little water,. Once my hair is styled, I use another dollop of cream to tame any unruly tresses, and help hold the curl/wave. This was how I was shown to use the products during a Bumble and bumble event at Sephora.

Its definitely not just for men! I think many people think it is because it says it's for those who don't want to work at their hair, plus it says men love it, but for a women's long hair it gives you that done yet undone look. A hint of shine with a natural yet polished look!

I think this product is great for anyone. It won't make your hair all flowly, but it will give it some body. It will also keep it very soft, while maintaining the style; however, it you want your hair to hold like it would with hair spray, gel, etc, I would recommend the Bumble & bumble styling spray.

grooming creme vs brilliantine?
what is the difference between the two, i have asian hair that is 5 inches past the shoulder and thin with a few layers, which would you recommend?

answer 1
as far as I can tell, brilliantine and grooming cream are more or less the same, but the finish is different. Grooming cream is a satin finish and brilliantine is a glossy finish. Texture is the matte version of these two.

I prefer grooming cream as the brilliantine made my hair seem greasy. My hair texture is fine and thin and can look greasy really easily. If that's not a problem for your hair texture, you'd probably be fine with either. I could be wrong, but that's what my experience was and I've tried all three.
answered 2 years, 8 months ago
answer 2
Grooming creme is more lightweight and less shine. Brilliantine you need a LOT less product and it will make your hair stringy if you use too much. Grooming creme makes your hair more piece-y and gives it definition.

answer 3
I have both and I prefer grooming creme because it helps the hair be soft and smooth and I use it on damp hair. I used to use brilliiantine in dry hair to give it a slightly messy piecey look, but it was heavier and weighed my hair down. I think grooming creme is for damp hair and brilliiantine is for dry hair.
