I quite like the Curl Conscious range from Bumble and Bumble and these nifty little products have only increased my appreciation. It's very rare that I find curly-hair products that a. actually do what they say they do and b. don't make my hair gross. I have never really gotten along with mousse, it often leaves my hair crispy and generally very grim. The Bumble and Bumble Curl Conscious Holding Foam seems to be an exception to the rule and i'm quite surprised at the results it gave.
Part of the problem with my hair is the thickness and length, when its curly it looks like a bushy pyramid and is revolting. My curls don't always turn out the same either, sometimes I have tiny ringlets, other washes will leave me with looser waves. More often than not I'll get a combination of the two and there is guaranteed to be a halo of frizz either way.
The foam helped my curls stay curly and regulated the shape a little bit but I don't think I can say i'm a convert to the dark side and give up my GHDs just yet. I really still have to straighten and then re-curl my hair to get it how I like but this mousse is great for holding a springy curl in!
My favourite of the two products has got to be the Bumble and Bumble Curl Conscious Reactivating Mist. I use it on styled hair to help retain the curl and spruce them up if the curl is starting to fall out. I have to be careful not to get too carried away spraying this on because it can make a bit of a sticky mess. It helped a little with my frizz problem so this is definitely a product worth keeping on the shelf.
You can find them both here for between £20.50 and £23.50
