Bumble and Bumble - Hairdresser's Invisible Oil Range

Bumble and Bumble Invisible Oil Hairdresser's Trio
Bumble and Bumble Invisible Oil Hairdresser's Trio
I picked this trio up from Boots a few weeks ago, I decided to go with the mini travel size pack so I could try out the range without laying down a load of cash. In saying this, the trio pack is still quite expensive at €25 but I do think it's a good way to try the products.
Bumble and Bumble Invisible Oil Hairdresser's Trio
In this set you get the Hairdresser's Invisible Oil shampoo, conditioner and primer. They come in a small, durable, clear plastic, resealable zipped travel bag. These products have a warm fruity very pleasant scent. They are decent sizes (60 ml) and are perfect for travel - whether it's a weekend away or even a longer trip. I've got about 8 washes out of the shampoo (shampooing twice with every wash) and I'm only about half way through the conditioner after 8 washes.

Bumble and Bumble Hairdresser's Invisible Oil Shampoo
Bumble and Bumble Hairdresser's Invisible Oil Shampoo
Bumble and Bumble Hairdresser's Invisible Oil Shampoo - Link! This is a sulfate free shampoo (sulfates are the foaming agents used in products, they can very harsh and stripping on the hair and can also irritate the scalp). This shampoo contains six lightweight oils designed to nourish and smooth the hair. I did notice it definitely had a slight oily texture to it- but nothing too heavy. The shampoo also lathered up really nicely and this is often difficult for a sulfate free shampoo to do. I was a bit concerned that the oil in it would weigh my hair down (I have fine hair but a lot of it), however it did not. But I found I had to wash my hair a day earlier than I would normally if I was using a different shampoo.

Ingredients- Water, Disodium Laureth sulfosuccinate, Sodium Cocoyllsethionate, Sodium Lauryl Sulfoacetate, Glycerin, Sodium Lauroyl Sarcosinate, Coco-Betaine, Acrylates Copolymer, Decyl Glucoside, Butylene Glycol, Glycol Distearate, Laureth-23, Glycereth-26, Vitis Vinifera (Grape) Seed Oil, Prunus Amygdalus Dulcis (Sweet Almond) Oil, Macadamia Integrifolia Seed Oil, Cocos Nucifera (Coconut) Oil, Gardenia Tahitensis (Tiare) Flower Extract, Argania Spinosa Kernel Oil, Hydroxypropyltrimonium Hydrolyzed Corn Starch, Carthamus Tinctorius (Safflower) Seed Oil, Sodium Hyaluronate, Phenyl Trimethicone, Panthenyl Ethyl Ether, Sodium PCA, Pantethine, Polyquaternium-7, Polyquaternium--10, Potassium Hydroxide, Sodium Cholride, Sodium Sulfate, Fragrance (Parfum), Linalool, Hexyl Cinnamal, Butylphenyl, Methylpropional,Phenoxyethanol, Methylisothiazolinone, Methychlorisothiazolione <ILN40418>


Bumble and Bumble Hairdresser's Invisible Oil Conditioner
Bumble and Bumble Hairdresser's Invisible Oil Conditioner
Bumble and Bumble Hairdresser's Invisible Oil Conditioner - Link! This conditioner again contains the same six lightweight oils as the shampoo. It has quite a thick slightly oily texture, I apply this from ear level down. I have found that this conditioner definitely eliminates any fizz.  I always blow dry my hair - but I have found with this conditioner when I let my hair dry naturally, I have found it is still frizz free even in hot dry humid holiday weather (my hair is naturally quiet straight, with some frizz).

Ingredients- Water, Cetearyl Alcohol, Cetyl Esters,Glycerin, Butyrospermum Parkii (Shea Butter), Behentrimonium Chloride, Vitis Vinifera (Grape) Seed Oil, Prunus Amygdalus Dulcis (Sweet Almond) Oil, Macadamia Integrifolia Seed Oil, Cocos Nucifera (Coconut) Oil, Gardenia Tahitensis (Tiare) Flower Extract, Argania Spinosa Kernel Oil, Carthamus Tinctorius (Safflower) Seed Oil, Hydroxypropyltrimonium Hydrolyzed Corn Starch,  Hydrolyzed Vegetable Protein PG-Propyl Silanetriol Hydrolzed  Wheat Protein, Hydrolzed  Wheat Starch, Dimethicone, Sodium Hylauronate, Glyceryl Stearate Se, Panthenyl Ethyl Ether, Sodium PCA, Ethylhexylglycerin, Dimethiconol, Pantethine, Potassium Stearate, Sodium Chloride, Citric Acid, BHT, Fragrance (Parfum), Linalool, Hexyl Cinnamal, Butylphenyl, Methylpropional, Disodium EDTA, Phenoxyethanol <ILN40716>

Bumble and Bumble Hairdresser's Invisible Oil Heat/ UV Protective Primer
Bumble and Bumble Hairdresser's Invisible Oil Heat/ UV Protective Primer
Bumble and Bumble Hairdresser's Invisible Oil Heat UV Protective Primer - Link! This again contains the six light weight oils. This is to be sprayed throughout the hair after shampoo and conditioning. I loved the sound of this product, as I thought it would be excellent to use on holidays to help stop the sun drying out and damaging my hair. I also thought it would be good  to use before any heat styling. However I tried this product on three separate occasions and I found that although it did make my hair really sleek, it also weighed it down making it flat and left it looking slightly greasy.

Ingreidents- Water, Cetearyl Alcohol, Butylene Glycol, PEG-12 Glyceryl Dimyristate, Vitis Vinifera (Grape) Seed Oil, Prunus Amygdalus Dulcis (Sweet Almond) Oil, Macadamia Integrifolia Seed Oil, Cocos Nucifera (Coconut) Oil, Gardenia Tahitensis (Tiare) Flower Extract, Argania Spinosa Kernel Oil, Carthamus Tinctorius (Safflower) Seed Oil, Hydroxypropyltrimonium Hydrolyzed Corn Starch,  Hydrolyzed Vegetable Protein PG-Propyl Silanetriol Hydrolzed  Wheat Protein, Hydrolzed  Wheat Starch, Dimethicone, Glycerin, Sodium Hylauronate, Behentrimonium, Methosulfate, Distearyldimonium Chloride, Dimethiconol, Cetrimonium Chloride, Butyl Methoxydibenzoylmethane, Ethylhexyl , Methoxycinnamate, Sodium Cholride, Citric Acid, BHT, Fragrance (Parfum),  Hexyl Cinnamal, Linalool, Limonene, Coumarin, Butylphenyl, Methylpropional, Potassium Sorbate Phenoxyethanol <ILN40717>

After using this set, my favourite product is definitely the conditioner, followed closely by the shampoo. The full sizes of these products are quite expensive ranging from €30-€34, but I would consider buying the full size conditioner as I feel that this did the most for my hair.

Please note I purchased all of the products mentioned. The above links are not affiliate links.

  1. I've heard sooo much about Bumble and Bumble lately, really wanna try them but they're really pricey aren't they! I don't think I'll try this range though, as my hair is quite fine and gets weighed down. Great post. Thanks for your link during last nights #bbloggers chat :) xx

    1. It's such a pity their products are so expensive. !'m also really liking the L'Oreal ever sleek shampoo at the moment, it doesn't weight my hair down at all! I'm glad you liked the post :)
