Bumble and Bumble's Sunday Shampoo Review

I’ve done it, I’ve finally gone and done it. I’ve found the miracle product my hair has been screaming out for for a while now. This product is the one thing that has helped my hair out, the one thing that is stopping my house look like a giant hairball, the one thing that is stopping me form going bald by the time I’m 30, and what is that one thing? Well if you haven’t guessed by the title, it’s Bumble and bumble’s Sunday Shampoo.

I had been umming and ahhring about buying this shampoo for a while, it even featured in my Christmas Beauty Product Wish List but did I really want to be spending over £20 for a bottle of shampoo? Well no, if I’m honest I didn’t, so bring on the Boxing Day sales and apparently a little 20% off from really can persuade me otherwise. I do LOVE Bumble and bumble’s Thickening Hairspray (see a review here) and have used it everyday since I got it, so I wasn’t in any doubt that I wouldn’t love this product too.

This shampoo is said to do many things. It helps remove left over product build up from your hair that can damage it if not removed properly. It can help repair over heated and over stressed hair. But most of all, most of all…(I like the way you move…sorry had to do that) it is said to help hair effected by hard water.

Now, in the magical lands of the North where people don’t put an ‘r’ after their a’s, the water is lovely and soft. It tastes like heaven and there is certainly no scum floating on the top of your glass when you drink. Lime scale is just an old wives tale in Sheffield and there’s no need for Calgon tablets, our washing machines are safe as hard water is something completely unheard of. So, you can imagine the shock my hair had when suddenly, after 24 years of bliss, it was forced to wash itself in such horrors. Well let’s just say my hair threw a major paddy, “If you’re going to continue to wash me in this sh*t” it said, “well, I'm not going to stick around for it.” Yep you guessed it, since I moved to London, I’ve been malting like a B**ch!

Bumble and Bumble Sunday Shampoo Review

So, the Sunday Shampoo arrived (in a very large bag full of other beauty products) and I was eager to put it straight to the test. My first impressions were that I love the packaging, but that’s the case with all the Bumble and bumble products. They’ve made their branding simple but classy and it looks high end without being too in your face. I do have a teeny tiny criticism with this shampoo as I find that it doesn’t lather very well. You therefore need a hefty amount to shampoo your whole head of hair and for the high price, I really don’t want to be using large amounts at one time. My clever way around this is to only use a small amount of the product on the roots because that’s want needs to be strengthened in this horrible hard water. I then use my regular shampoo to wash all my hair again, as alone the Bumble and bumble doesn’t seem to make my hair feel completely clean.

However, using this tactic is still proving very effective. As this shampoo is meant to be a weekly treatment you obviously save the pennies by not using it every time you wash your hair. I have been using it a little more frequent than that by using it every other time I wash my hair, but the effects really have been amazing.

Straight away, after my first wash with this shampoo I could already see how this shampoo was helping repair my hair. The fall out was significantly less than before and this is only increasing the more I use it. I have slowly started using it less throughout the week and the effects are still great. I do aim to only be using this once a week eventually but I think I need to keep using this shampoo frequently for a while to help completely strengthen my hair before I can reduce the use.

Either way this shampoo really is making such a huge difference to my suffering hair. No only is it actually staying on my head and I can no longer literally pull it out when I run my fingers through it, my hair looks shinier and feels healthy. It’s been less frizzy and needs less product to keep it under control. Although I never used to use too much product on my hair, I have to admit I have started to use more after I ombred it about a year ago. This shampoo is helping to strip any build up of these products from my hair and is keeping it in the very healthy condition it was before I moved to London.

All in all I couldn’t recommend this shampoo enough. If you use product or dye your hair, put it through a lot of heat stress or worst of all live in a hard water area (unless your crazy enough to wash your hair in Evian) this shampoo is an absolute must for you. Yes, it does come with a hefty price tag, but if you use it wisely it could last you a very long time. I have been using this for about 3 weeks and I’m only a small percentage of the way down the bottle. I’m so happy that 20% discount pushed me to get this; I wouldn’t live without it now.

Have you used this shampoo, what do you think of it? Could you scrape to spending over £20 for a shampoo? What are you favourite hair products and more specifically what are you favourite Bumble and bumble products?
