Questions & Answers for Bumble and bumble Hairdresser's Invisible Oil

Question
Does it kill body?
I have a textured bob and my hair always looks dull from the products I use, which is typically a combination of BB Texture Hair (un)Dressing cream, BB Surf Spray or BB Styling Lotion, Healthy Sexy Hair flat iron spray, Healthy Sexy Hair Soy Touchable hairspray and Short Sexy Hair Play Dirty. I need to have a lot of volume for my cut to look right and I'm afraid this oil might deflate it. Thoughts?

I would agree with you. If your hair is not dry, I would choose a shine spray which is lighter and coats the outside of your hair. This product absorbs into the hair. It is not overly heavy but does take away some body on my wavy hair.

I don't think this will weigh your hair down. I use about 2-3 pumps and then my hair air dries. Even the times I have blow dried it, it turns out shiny.

i've used this product on damp and dry hair and i would say that you should be fine using it on damp hair before blow drying or air drying. it could replace your heat-protecting spray. i think layering it on top of the products you list would probably weigh your hair down a bit and reduce the effect of the texturizing products like surf spray.

I used to use moroccan oil but where i live, its harder to get because only certain stores carry the brand. I've always loved bumble and bumble products and I've used just about EVERY item they have ONCE.
This oil is lighter has a subtle scent and its COMPLETELY different than the moroccan oil. They're both really great oils. I have color treated hair and its somewhat naturally curly and I've been sticking to this for a while and it works pretty good its not as thick as the moroccan oil so where i'd put 2-3 pumps of the moroccan I use about 5-6 pumps of the bumble and bumble oil. I like it. Its lighter. But if you like the more thick rich one go with moroccan oil.

Question
Air drying hair
How does this product hold up if I air dry my hair? I rarely blow dry my hair, and tend to run out the door most days with my hair still wet. I have fine long, straight hair and am low-maintenance when it comes to styling, so I am looking for something I can apply to wet/damp hair that will liven up my boring locks a bit once it dries (ie: volume, less frizz).

A friend mentioned using a hair oil on damp hair and throwing it in a bun for soft waves. Would this B&B oil do the trick? Thanks!

I don't think it adds much volume, just frizz control. I use it with my thick hair to help control fly-aways and help de-bulk, although it doesn't feel oily or slick once it's on. I use it a lot on air-dried hair, as it absorbs quickly and leaves your hair feeling smooth and soft.

I have the same hair issues - long, fine, straight, and gets oily easily. I am a college student and sometimes have to be out the door really early. Therefore, when I use this product, some days I apply it to dry hair and other times to damp hair (before I blow dry it). However, I never usually dry my hair all the way through - I generally just dry my roots - but I still apply the product to my ends and lower half of my hair. It works just as well! It will still apply to your hair as it air dries and you will get the same result :). Hope this helped!

I have fine, straight, colored hair that I always air-dry. Let me tell you, this product is amazing for that. I always put it on after I towel dry my hair. I just use one pump (otherwise my hair can get lightly greasy) and just work it through my hair with my fingers acting as a comb. It detangles my hair in just seconds, and once it's dry my hair is soft, silky and just awesome. Super easy to throw your hair in a bun while damp with the invisible oil and it just creates soft waves that are super touchable and soft. I live off of this product!

Yes this oil works too if you air dry your hair. I do air dry my hair on days that I don't need to quickly dry my hair and this oil always leave my hair soft, silky and non-frizzy after. That is another reason why I love this hair oil. You can use it on damp or dry hair; if you like to blow dry or air dry; act as a heat protectant and also protects your hair from UV damage.

This product is a great buy. It adds incredible shine to my hair and you need very little. I use it after I flat iron my hair for my ombré ends. I however have reservations about using it on damp on the go hair. Mainly due to the fact that you have fine hair, as do I. If you use to much it might look oily, heavy or striny. In other words GROSS. I would use the living proof leave in conditioner which combats frizz. You can mix water, a little sea salt and the leave in conditioner, put it in a spray bottle... Spritz your stands, wrap it in a bun or twist it and get those airy beachy waves. Hope this helps

I airdry my hair most days, and I really enjoy it. I don't know how it is when you apply it while your hair is wet though; I usually put it on after it's dried. I can tell the difference immediately. It tames some of my frizzies, and seems to give an added depth to my color. I have blonde wavy hair; it also has a nice scent. So I basically use it as a finishing product. My hair is pretty dry too, and this seems to help a little bit with that as well. A little goes a long way, as well.

I have used both Fekkai's Glossing Cream and B&B Hairdresser's Oil. I like both, however, I find the Hairdresser's Oil to be not as "heavy," at least for my hair. I have used the oil on damp hair, as well as after styling for some shine. I used have a pump after stylish and finger-combed it through my hair, concentrating on the ends. It looked really healthy and shiny afterward.

I have used Fekkai's Glossing Cream while damp, as well as after styling. I like it better for after styling, personally. I use it very sparingly, however, as it seems to make my hair look pretty greasy if I use even a bit too much. It's really nice, makes my hair look great, and has a fantastic scent--just be careful to not apply much (my hair is a few inches below my shoulders and I use a pea-size amount or less).

For me, it's mostly about the scent. If I'm going out and want to wear a certain perfume, I'll use the Hairdresser's Oil, as it has a very faint, almost undetectable scent. If it's daytime and I'm not wearing perfume, I'll use Moroccan Oil or Fekkai's Glossing Cream, as they provide a nice, light scent that stays.

I like the B&B better than then Fekai glossing cream but they are really not the same type of product. Although Bumble states that this product gives shine to the hair, it is not like a glossing cream that smooths and creates sleek shine. It is more for taming frizz, fly aways and creating soft hair. It is very nourishing and doesn't weigh hair down. Doesn't give an abundance of shine but still an awesome product. The glossing cream is not as healthy for your hair but has quite a different function. You could easily use both together each day, but this will not be a likely substitute

yes, it does. I asked an associate to sample this oil to me. I got a tiny container about 1/2 tall with the circumference of a dime. It lasted me about two weeks and I used it everyday. It has a really pretty perfumed vanilla scent, but Paul Mitchell gloss drops work better, in my opinion, for long hair, and only costs $19.00. However, for #38.00, you do get A LOT of the BB oil. It is a value when you compare with others on the market.

Note: 1st listed ingredient means it is highest % of that ingred. Check it out for yourself. Hope this helps, I returned mine. :)
