Product Review: Bumble and Bumble Straight Shampoo, Conditioner, Blow Dry Cream

I'm always on the hunt for shampoo, conditioner and blow dry styling balm that will leave my hair looking like a movie stars, you know - silky, smooth and straight.  I unfortunately have typical indian hair which is coarse, thick, and wavy.  Basically it's a crazy mess when it's not tame.  When I was at Sephora two weeks ago their 500 point gift was the BB Straight Set with comes with the Shampoo, Conditioner, and Blow Dry Styling Balm.  The Straight Shampoo (retails $9.00 for 2 oz and $29.00 for 8.5 oz) , Straight Conditioner ($35.00 for 8.5 oz) and Straight Blow Dry (retails $12.00 for 2 oz and $29.00 for 5 oz).

The shampoo and conditioner smell amazing!  I used a little amount of shampoo in my wet hair and it worked into a great lather.  As an added bonus, the shampoo is sulfate free.  I then rinsed the shampoo out and followed with the conditioner by leaving the conditioner in my hair for a few minutes before rinsing.  Although I did like these products, I think I could have achieved the same great smell and feel with other cheaper products.

The blow dry styling balm is lightweight and heat-activated.  I am extremely picky about the straight creams I use in my hair since they are expensive and rarely seem to work.  I always have to bring out my straightening iron for that sleek look.  However, by using this product I am able to cut out the straightening time as this product leaves my hair straight, silky and smooth.  Also, you just need a little bit (pea size) to work into your hair.  If you use to much your hair will instead look oily and greasy.

Overall, I am glad I tried this product.  I would not invest in the shampoo and conditioner since I can use a lower cost option to achieve the same result.  I would however invest in the Blow Dry Styling Balm as it left my hair straight, smooth, and silky!
