Review: Bumble and bumble Hairdresser’s Invisible Oil Ultra Rich collection

3

Say hello to hydration and goodbye to dry and damaged hair. Bumble and bumble, the luxe haircare brand with cream and coral packaging, just launched its new Hairdresser’s Invisible Oil Ultra Rich collection.

As an extension of the brand’s top-selling Hairdresser’s Invisible Oil collection — which I’ve used for years — the new line is specially designed for “thirsty strands in need of intense moisture,” per Bumble and bumble.

“With this line, we brought in a skincare-grade of hyaluronic acid, so we’re taking care of all aspects of beauty,” said Britney Williams, Bumble and Bumble’s live educator and stylist, told The Post. “So, if it’s good for your face, we’re going to keep your hair healthy, strong and protected with rich ingredients.”

Along with hyaluronic acid, the skincare powerhouse ingredient that provides moisture to the skin, the shampoo, conditioner and treatment are infused with a six-oil blend, along with Kalahari melon seed oil, which “helps keep the hair soft and luscious,” Williams adds.

About Bumble and bumble’s new collection

Bumble and bumble’s new Hairdresser’s Invisible Oil Ultra Rich collection includes a product trio that is meticulously “prescribed” by the brand, just as a doctor would prescribe specific medication.

“Bumble is the only brand that has in-house product testing, so any products that get developed touch the stylists’ hands first,” Williams said. “It’s super unique because most companies go through production without a team of stylists. We come together and find the perfect product for specific hair types.”

Speaking of varying hair types, Williams explains the versatility and hydrating power the shampoo, conditioner and treatment have on her hair type.

“I’m mixed-race, so it’s hard for me to find products that are hydrating for my hair without weighing it down,” she said. “This new ultra-rich product is perfect because it offers up to 72 hours of high humidity protection and frizz reduction. It’s also color-safe.”

Our review on Bumble and bumble’s new collection

I’ve used Bumble and bumble’s original Hairdresser’s Invisible Oil Heat/UV Protective Primer for years and was thrilled to try out the new collection. First off, when using the shampoo and conditioner, my hair has never felt smoother, hydrated and knot-free.

All three of the products smell divine out of the packaging, like fresh flowers and beachy coconuts straight out of the bottles. My hair was neither frizzy nor flat and greasy, so it was the perfect middle ground of diminishing my dry locks into a salon-like blowout.

Plus, the Hairdresser’s Invisible Oil Ultra Rich Hyaluronic Treatment Lotion was a lifesaver on my second-day hair. As Williams suggests, I applied two to three pumps of lotion to my hair from the ears to the ends.

It automatically revived my hair and I didn’t have to apply heat the second day.
