Bumble and Bumble Prep Primer Review

I’ve recently been on the lookout for a leave in conditioner to spritz in my hair as it’s always a little dehydrated parched. I’d love to have beautiful silky curls but I’ve faced that mine are just prone to fluff and frizz no matter how much I try to baby them! Nothing will stop me from trying though, what with new and seemingly miraculous products being touted at every turn.

In true product junkie fashion, I already have a number of spray leave in conditioners but I get bored easily and never seem to finish them off. I thought I’d treat myself to another one though seeing as my hair is getting longer and needs increasingly more care. This product is recommended for anyone but mainly for those with virgin, ultra-fine, limp and relatively healthy hair. If you know me or my hair then you'll know I have all those characteristics apart from 'limp'! Okay and my hair is a mix of fine, medium and coarse but hey hair is hair right? Enter my uncharacteristic Bumble and Bumble splurge buy!

If you’ve been reading my blog for a while you’ll know that I like using “natural” products and that I try to avoid silicones. The primer’s ingredients looked promising as most of the junky ingredients are right at the bottom of the list. It contains silicone but it's not in the first few ingredients so I wasn't too uptight about buying it.

The packaging stands out a lot more when compared to high street brands and just looks a little different. The spray nozzle is impressive because it sprays a wide mist instead of a really narrow burst like some bottles which just drench one tiny patch of your head. I feel that with this nozzle I get a much more even and light application.

The smell is interesting to say the least. Not offensive, just interestingly herbal. I can’t say it’s something I would actually choose my hair to smell of but I find that it disappears after a short while.

I haven’t noticed any high street brands coming out with glorified leave-in conditioners ‘hair primers’ but maybe this is for good reason because in terms of performance, I feel like I could have sprayed plain water on my hair and had the same result. The product claims to reveal texture, refresh your style and enhance the performance of your styling products. I haven't noticed any of these claims which is sad because I really wanted to like this. Especially at the price of £17. My curls just need more concentrated care!
