It's not often that i write a negative review for a product, but when i tried this Bumble & Bumble Black Hair Powder, i just had to let you know how shocking it was! I picked it up on a whim this week, whilst browsing through the beauty aisles of John Lewis. I was hoping that this dry shampoo would provide lots of volume and texture for my hair, but what it actually did couldn't have been more different!
I tried it on my hair yesterday morning, only to find that it sprayed out a thick, black powder that was incredibly messy. My hair was coated with this soot-like powder that also covered my hands, hairbrush, clothes and forehead with black stains! I was so shocked- it was like using some kind of joke product! My hair was so thick with this sooty powder, that i had to re wash my hair and also change my stained clothes, which was such a nuisance. I used it exactly as i had been instructed to, yet all i was left with, was hair that looked as though i had been sweeping chimneys all day. I looked ridiculous! I really can't see how this product can still be sold at department stores- surely it's not supposed to perform like this? It didn't do anything that was claimed on the bottle- no fullness or volume, just a ridiculous mess that seemed to get everywhere! It felt like i a was using a product designed for bald men, who wanted to recreate the appearance of having hair! There's no way that i could of gone out in public after using this- especially not in the rain!
I began to question whether i had purchased a faulty product, but when i looked at it's reviews on the Sephora website, my experience had been shared by many others too. I would definitely not recommend this product- in fact, i warn you to steer well clear from it! The lighter colours (there are four options) may not be the same, but i can safely warn you not to try the 'black'. It's the worst hair product that i've ever used. Plus it wasn't cheap at £28.00! I thought that all Bumble and Bumble products would be great- a lot of people love some of their hair care products, but that obviously can't be said for the whole range! I'll be returning this terrible 'dry shampoo' first thing tomorrow morning. Such a disappointment.
Have you ever tried this product before?
