Bumble and Bumble curl creme

alicurlsalicurls Posts: 16Registered Users
So I just got my hair cut and styled at a salon that uses bumble and bumble. The stylist used the curl foam, but said the creme is better for definition without crunch...has anyone used it? I don't think it's CG, but I'd like to find out if it works for any curlies out there....

    I used it in the past and really liked it. I recently bought a bunch of cone free stuff (after I had run out of BB), and I'm not a fan. So, I am actually planning on going out today to buy BB products again. I like the curl cream, but I think it is best used with BB shampoo. I only shampoo every 3-4 days.
    3B extremely thick hair, but individual strands are thin.
    Color every six months.

    I know they reformulated their line recently. I used to love it before I went CG. Unfortunately, I think most of the line still has something in it I couldnt use... can't recall what....

    Yep, it has cones and definitely needs shampoo to wash it out. I got a sample of the fine-to-medium and the medium-to-thick (or coarse, whatever it was called). Although my hair was fine, I tried the medium-to-thick one already. I wanted to sabotage liking it because it has cones and is expensive, so I tried the one I thought wouldn't work out. It worked out great, though. I just didn't use a lot, so it didn't weigh down my hair. I have the fine-to-medium one and will use that one sometime in the near future, as I'm shampooing more often lately (I love cones and polyquats!). I tried that first sample two months ago. I should've tried them out around the same time to compare them side by side but I just didn't want the cone build up (and had since then forgotten about this second sample).
    I liked the first sample, and hopefully the other sample will work out too...but it's just so expensive, so personally, I'm not going to buy it...not until the economy looks more hopeful...and even then, I just like other things at this point.
    If money isn't an issue and you don't mind shampooing, I say "go for it."
    That's right, I said it! I wear scrunchies!!

    I am a sulfate washing, cone slabbing, curly lovin' s.o.b. The CG police haven't caught me yet.

    I went to a salon that [exclusively] uses B&B. She used the shampoo, condish, curl creme, and maybe one more thing. My hair looked really good, and I left with samples of the aforementioned products. Actually, I drove 200 miles to see this curly specialist, and since its only sold in the salon or online, I havent made a full purchase. And Ive pretty much used the products together, not with any other brands. But I had a really good experience at the salon, she detangled my hair with no prob whatsoever. So that left a really good impression on me, as to her skills and the product.

    Aveda Light Elements Defining Whip works really well and is also CG.

    I am a 2a, though, so I don't need *much* to do the job.

    I ordered this online and found it on sale around 22$ shipping included. I still felt queasy spending so much on a hair product but my old stylist who I miss dearly used to gush over curl conscious so I figured I'd give it a shot now that I'm trying to finally embrace my curls. I have to say I am really pleased and it is definitly my favorite curl creme. It does exactly what I hoped.
    I thought it was way to expensive but really since you only use like a tiny bit each time it's totally worth the price to me.
    My hair has fine strands but is super thick and reaches the middle of my back. The product feels slightly heavy so I avoid putting it on my roots but the weight of it reduces the excess volume of my hair. It smells really good, defines my curls and makes them springier with zero crunch! It's an all around great product and well worth the money.

    My hair is still angry with me for trying the Bb Curl Conscious Holding Foam on Sunday.
