I am a big Bumble & Bumble fan and when I heard they were coming out with a collection geared toward color treated hair, called Color Minded, I instantly became interested. I don't dye my hair different colors but I do color my hair every few months to
cover kill gray hairs.
First things first: the Shampoo. It is a sulfate free shampoo; it is mild and less damaging/drying (more hydrating) than most other shampoos I have tried recently. It is supposed to minimize fading effects that are typical from cleansing the hair. The scent is really uplifting and wonderful. Overall my hair looks silky and healthy after using it.
Another product that is in the line is the UV Protective Polish. This is a product that is a "finisher" for your hair routine. It seals, adds shine, and protects from heat and color fading. This reminds me so much of Chi Silk Infusion. The one tiny bottle that I owned of that stuff carried me through for over a year. I love B&B Color Minded polish, the teeniest amount is all you need. I don't really notice a scent with it but it really does illuminate and pull out the hair color.
My favorite of the 3 products I own from the collection is the UV Protective Styling Balm. The back of the bottle reads "A nourishing balm for natural movement, control and lustre. Work through damn hair, roots to ends. Style (or don't)."
I replaced my long running hair treatment/leave in conditioner, It's A 10. I have been using It's A 10 for a little over 3 years now religiously and I like the B&B Color Minded balm just as much--if not more. I may do a post in the next few days or weeks battling the two out... would you want to see/read that? I also would like to mention that this smells the same as the shampoo, just slightly more faint.
Do you own any Bumble & Bumble products? If so, what is your favorite? Have you tried anything from the Color Minded line?
