Bumble&Bumble 'BB Prep' Review

Bumble&Bumble 'BB Prep' £15 for 250ml.

This is one of my favourite Bumble and Bumble products that I use (I just can't get on with their salt spray, but I'll save that for another time ;) )
It's name states exactly it's use; 'prep'- think priming and preperation.
My hair is always a little tangled after washing and generous spritzes of this helps make the combing process a lot easier. It's a thin milk-coloured liquid that helps detangle and it supposed to help 'enhance the performance' of other styling products (Bumble and Bumble website.) It's also a refresher spray- it can be used to refresh hair and it's products between washes, though I haven't used it for this purpose yet.
One thing that impresses me is that although I always end up feeling like I've sprayed a lot of the product, it doesn't seem to decrease in the container much, which means this product will last a very long time (hellooo value for money!)
It's got a fresh and fruity smell that's quite distinctive and nice to use after a bath or shower. The issue I often have with after wash hair products is that feeling that my hair is being weighed down. I really dislike that feeling that my hair is full of 'stuff' yet 'BB Prep' doesn't do this. It contains great ingredients to help hairs condition such as Vitamin A, H and Sea Kelp amongst many others.
A downside to the packaging is actually the pump spray. It doesn't seem to have much control and the product sprays out at wide angles, so although it covers the entire hair, it can also spray into the face...which is not so pleasent! This aside, the packaging is nice and practical, with a semi-opaque container so you're able to keep an eye on product useage.

Although I like this product, I'm all for experimentation with hair products until I find one that is super-duper fantastic (yeah!) so I don't think I'll be repurchasing straight away when it runs out unless I am ultra disappointed with my next endeavour. I'd be interested to hear your thoughts on this product or any tips...I'm the first to admit I'm not very skillful or knowledgeable with hair styling.


  1. I really want to try some of this stuff! It sounds good!:)xox

  2. This sounds lovely! I really want to try their thickening products, backcombing is ruining my hair! XO.

  3. I cant stand my hair feeling weighed down either. This sounds really good. I'll have to havee a look on the site.

  4. I really want to try this! Bumble and Bumble always seem to have such lovely hair products :) x

  5. I've wanted to try something from Bumble & Bumble for ages- this does sound good, especially if it lasts ages. My hair definitely is in need of some looking after.

    Also- I love the plant pots- I was in Ikea this morning and almost bought the exact same ones!xxx

  6. Great review!! I havent tried anything from B&B yet... The Sunday shampoo is on my wishlist. :)
