Questions & Answers for Bumble and bumble Curl Conscious Calming Creme

Question
Does Bumble and Bumble products work on ethnic hair
Im black and therefore my hair when it dries looks like a huge frizz ball. I love the texture of my hair when its wet though and want to maintain this instead of straightening my hair everyday. so i would like to know if all bumble and bumble curl products would be effective for my hair. This product is honestly expensive and i dont want to throw money away

thanks in advance

I am pakistani and have been using it for a few years now. I would get a sample of it in store and try it out. Try both :)

I wouldn't buy it it's a waste. I bought it for my curly hair and used it a couple times, it smells disgusting and left my hair frizzy with no curls.

I have the same problem, I am mixed and my hair kind of does what it wants which mostly is frizz. This really does help with the taming the frizz and defining the curl. I use this in combination with the Living Proof style extender and a little bit of the Carol's Daughter Tui Oil. I know they are pricey but I really feel like I have tried so many things and this combination works really well. if you aren't sure about the financial commitment, then try a sample like the others have suggested!

I would go to the store and ask for a sample that way you can try it out before committing, also if you buy and it doesn't work you can always return it. Also look at Carol's Milk.

It does. I'm Puerto Rican, with naturally curly hair that I used to straighten. The cream will help define curls and keep that wet look we like so much.

Hope this helps.

I would go to Sephora and ask them for samples. The two creams are very different (I use the calming cream and the other one does nothing for my curls). I hate going in and spending tons of money on something that won't work for me. In the past, I've gone in and they have given my a little tub of product so I could go home and try out products before I purchased them.

It won't help your hair. I thought it would keep my hair looking just like it does when it's wet too......big mistake!

Yes, BB products will definitely work in ethnic hair. You may need to play around and experiment with exactly how much product to use based on your hair texture and density but these products do work when used properly. Go to their website and explore their recipes for certain styles then go to Sephora and get samples to try before you buy. I promise you will be amazed at how well these products work, especially when you layer them. I always use Tonic as a base, followed by styling cream. Then I can just leave it at that or add other products like Texture, Brilliantine, etc. But my base essentials are the Tonic/styling cream.

I think of my hair as slightly coarse which can make my hair puffball in humidity. I tried the curl conscious calming cream and curl conscious defining cream. The defining cream is perfect for my thick, curly hair if I want to let it air dry but the curl calming cream was a little too much for my hair, but I think it would be ideal for a more coarse head of hair. They're usually great about sending you home with a sample of any product you're on the fence about if you talk to the consultants in store

hello shimmerpink4, i live in maryland too. i like this curl creme. it will probably work out for you. it's not greasy and produces a nice light curl in my hair which has haircolor, but no other processes. i agree, it is pricey for the volume. i dont think i'll buy it wintertime. my hair needs more "juice" for maryland winters. let me know what you think after you try it!

Yes!!!! I had the same concern. It is literally the best thing I've ever put in my hair. I have a 3c curl pattern and I had never even heard of bumble and bumble before i purchased this. It's definitely worth the price. Get a sample and check it out

In my case - some days it does seem to calm the curls a little, but other days it doesn't appear to. Could be a matter of figuring out exactly how much product to use.

No, it just defines them. My hair is super curly and when I use this product it leaves my hair in spirals and keeps away frizz. Get a sample.

On my hair this brings the volume, or "poofiness", way down. I don't feel like this loosens curls but rather helps to define them.

To begin, curly hair needs plenty of moisture and this product gives an ideal amount. With all the moisture B&B's calming creme does provide, it does not weigh down my hair in the least. It makes it smooth, springy, and shiny. Fantastic product.

It did not tame my hair at ALL, but everyone's hair is different. I need LESS volume and just some definition and something to defrizz it. It's a tall order and I'm still looking for something. So far the only thing I like is TressFX by Ouidad but I still need to find something to combine it with to make my hair less stringy.

NOPE.
It doesn't help with volume, frizz or weigh them down.
Just do some kind of hair treatment, like keratin treatment. It will tame your curls. I did it because no hair product was helping me.

Question
All the "Curl Conscious" Products
Please tell me the difference between the Curl Conscious Calming Creme and the Curl Conscious Defining Creme. If the Defining Creme is more of a styling product instead of a leave-in conditioning product (that is the way I am interpreting the names and descriptions), then what is the difference between the Defining Creme and the Curl Conscious Holding Foam?

How many of these product do I need to use on a regular basis to keep my hair in the best shape possible? I figure I obviously need the Shampoo and Conditioner... not so sure about the Masque (how necessary is it if my hair isn't overly dry?). And which of the other 3 products are a must have (Calming Creme, Defining Cream, and Holding Foam)?

I have thick, somewhat coarse, wavy (somewhat curly) hair shoulder length hair (maybe a tad longer). I don't consider my hair curly since I have to use styling products to achieve decent curls (whereas my mother who has naturally curly hair will have it regardless of what shampoo, conditioner, etc. she uses on it). I prefer curls over waves, since my waves seem to go in whatever direction they want to (and it usually isn't the direction I am wanting).

Any advise is appreciated. Geez.... I wrote a freakin' novel here. LOL

Thanks in advance!

If you have coarse, thick hair with curls or waves, the Calming Creme is for you. I believe the other curl creme is for finer hair.

You sound like you have my exact hair to the "T". I prefer the defining creme over the calming creme and here is why: while my hair is thick and wavy (not fine like the defining creme suggests), it is a lighter formula so it defines my curls better than the calming creme. My sister has much thicker and more course hair than me and she needs the calming creme because it tames her crazy curls. My hair needs to be more manipulated to get that great curly look so the defining creme is designed to give definition while the calming creme controls and tames crazy curls (which I do not have--I have waves that curl with "defining" products that are light and not heavy). I suggest the styling foam to use along with the defining creme--your curls will be like a movie star!

They're usually great about sending you home with a sample of any product you're on the fence about if you talk to the consultants in store. Right when I get out of the shower I put the defining cream in my hands rub my palms together and scrunch through my curls for the perfect amount of control without any stickiness or stiffness and it looks amazing just air dryed

The curl defining cream is meant more for fine hair and does a great job of defining and adding volume to curls while the curl calming cream is better for smoothing and defining coarse or frizz-prone hair. You don't need to use them together, and if you try to use all the products you mentioned it would probably be way too much and it would weigh your hair down reducing the amount of curls.

My suggestion is:
-Towel dry hair (scrunch hair with towel, don't rub) and spritz on a hair prep like B&B prep or tonic or Redken Hair polishing prep spray
-use a little less than a quarter size dollop of calming cream and smooth over hair starting at your crown, twirl each section of curls around your finger and don't use too much product at your roots (this will weigh the hair down)
-Flip your hair over and blow dry with a diffuser on medium heat until mostly dry
-If you have sections that aren't curling as much or are laying flat, spritz on a SMALL amount of the Curl Reactivating mist and scrunch with your hand or dry with the diffuser again
-If you have any frizz use a small amount (smaller than a dime) of smoothing or shine serum and smooth over frizzy curls

I just purchased and returned the curl concsious calming creme. My hair are curly just after shampoo otherwise they are wavy n frizzy all the time. I purchased the product for my frizz and to control my hair. This product alone did not make much difference. May be you have to use several products to acheive the desired result. I returned the product and looking for another one... Good luck
