Hair | Bumble and Bumble Creme De Coco Conditioner

12 November 2013

If there's a beauty product that I'm fickle with, it's conditioner. I've been loyal to my Paul Mitchell Platinum Shampoo for seven years now, but I can't seem to stick to a conditioner. This is my second purchase of Creme de Coco on my search to find 'the one', and for anyone with hair in need of a moisture hit, this might be the product for you.

Alongside damage caused by a decade of bleaching, my locks are fine and knotty. Heavy conditioners weigh my hair down and make it greasy, a conditioner that's too light doesn't give me enough moisture. It's common knowledge that coconut oil is great for your hair, and this conditioner is formulated with the oil alongside coconut extract, to keep my hair feeling healthy. In addition to the coconut, it's packed with other moisturising ingredients: palm tree butter, mallow extract and wild olive oil. Creme de Coco also contains milk thistle exact, which Bumble & Bumble say is to protect the hair. After a little research I'm not exactly sure how true that claim is, but several people have attested to it preventing hair loss when ingested.

Initially I used this every time I washed my hair, and my hair was left feeling soft and nourished. After a while, however, I noticed that my hair started to feel greasier than normal, which was most likely down to product build up. I now alternate this with another, lighter conditioner, and this works really well for me. Creme de Coco is a heavy duty conditioner which works well in the moisture department.  Although I wouldn't call it HG, it's a nice addition to my routine, which I'm sure I'll be relying on more over the colder months. If you have seriously parched hair, give the travel sized version a go.


  1. So maybe not for everyday use but as the occasional treatment. That works great for me since the B&B full size bottles are a little bit to pricy and a travel size would be sufficient for a while at least :o). Xx

  2. I've never tried anything from B&B but this may be something to check out.


Thank you for all of your comments - I read and appreciate every one :)
