Is your hair at its Full Potential?


Bumble and bumble Full Potential Collection

Chelsey Signature copy

No matter how hard you try, do you feel the texture of your hair is letting you down in the styling department? Whether it’s the lack of swoosh or the non-existent wave – been there, done that, but I was too gutted to buy the T-shirt.

After doing my research, it suddenly came to me – it’s all in the strands! If your locks are lacking lustre from daily heat styling, over brushing (and in my case, a lot of peroxide), we can’t blame our poor follicles for taking the burn! But as we all know, these daily tribulations must end somewhere and unfortunately the only route is breakage, split ends and devilish frizz.

Guess what? There is a light at the end of this dark, dark tunnel. Resurrect and correct savaged strands with the new Full Potential range from Bumble, the second chance saloon for troublesome tresses. It fortifies hair so that it looks fuller, feels stronger and stays with you longer – so you can twist it, swoosh it, pin it and style as you like with confidence. Unsure if this will work for you?

The Results

Bumble and bumble Full Potential Shampoo


Short hair, always busy, likes to keep things simple.

I’m a bit out of my depth when it comes to hair care, I tend to stick to what I know and get on with it. So when I was offered the opportunity to try the Bumble and Bumble products, I was intrigued to see what my hair was missing out on. To say I’m impressed is an understatement.

Hair Preserve Shampoo
I like quick and easy results, so the Hair Preserve Shampoo was a great choice for me to try. I was expecting the formula to feel quite heavy, but the gel like texture was really refreshing with its menthol tingle. I was pleasantly surprised with smell of the product, as it wasn’t too feminine, which is perfect for me. Bumble are on to a winner with this cleanser.

Hair Preserve Conditioner
I could count on both hands the amount of times I’ve conditioned my hair, so this option definitely seemed like more of a treat to me. I really liked the lightweight texture; my hair felt instantly softer and looked healthier. I’ll definitely be conditioning my hair more often after this!

Hair Preserve Booster Spray
Now this one was a tricky one for me, but I understand that it’s all part of the routine, so I gave in and gave it a go. Once again, the smell is amazing, and the spritz is quite concentrated, so I found it was really easy to work into my hair. I combed it through and it actually helped with my styling routine. It’s not something that I’d usually incorporate into my morning routine but after using it I did find it improved the look and feel of my hair.

Chemically treated, prone to fringe snaps and split ends.

It’s hard to find a product range that performs well for your hair whilst keeping your colour bright, so after giving this range a proper good go, I was pleasantly surprised by the super-shiny results it gave me!

Hair Preserve Shampoo
There’s nothing I love more than an invigorating start to the day. I was completely amazed by the softening gel-like texture; my hair felt instantly fuller which unusual for a non-creamy product. You can really feel the menthol formula invigorate your scalp as you work the product in, and my hair loved every minute of it.

Hair Preserve Conditioner
The ‘instant result’ claim is true, as my hair right away felt softer without that heavy feel. I noticed a big difference in the elasticity of my strands, as my Tangle Teezer combed through my hair like a breeze after I’d rinsed out the product. I’d love to use this regime before work as it gave my productivity a real kick start after using both products.

Hair Preserve Booster Spray
As the recommended dose is twice a day, I started on the ends and I found it really easy to comb through (it almost doubles up as a mini detangler). I adore the smell of this range so I did get a bit spritz happy but all of the repercussions were positive. My blow dry was more streamlined than ever, and I couldn’t get enough of my swoosh!
