I purchased a discounted bottle at The Cosmetics Company Store out of a whim upon arriving in New York. Also, I took it as an opportunity to try Bumble and Bumble.
Since I have pretty fine and mostly-straight/slightly-wavy hair, I don't feel the need to use conditioner thus, valuing shampoos that are able to make my hair smooth and easy to comb through. Upon trying BB Gentle, I was a little disappointed because I had a hard time brushing my hair after showering since it didn't leave my hair as smooth as I hoped. Nonetheless, I religiously used the shampoo. After one week, I was astonished to feel my hair unbelievably soft, straight and smooth. I had to ask my peers to feel my hair because it looked like that of a shampoo model! I only brush my hair after I shower but my hair still manages to be smooth throughout the day. My hair's also been unbelievably shiny since I've used it. Now that I'm back in Manila with tropical weather, I can still feel the shampoo working for me.
My dry colored hair is nurtured and shiner than ever
I have the set of Gentle Shampoo and Rich Conditioner and I had high hopes. I love the smell and the salon told me it was amazing... well, I used it for about a week and hated it. My hair looked weighed down and dirty all the time.
I noticed it on the second day, but thought maybe my hair just needed to adjust to something new. Well, by the next week, I bought something else because my hair just looked back.
I have fine hair, so finding something isn't always easy... I just wish I didn't have to spend $50 to find out that this product wouldn't work for me.

Love Bumble and Bumble products!

I've been using with the matching conditioner. The conditioner seems almost pointless. The shampoo smells amazing but compared with my previous shampoos, my hair feels dry and tangled after shampooing. I won't buy again.

I use this product with the gentle conditioner and thickening spray every other day. I have tried different combinations but this is the best for me.

I just got this product in the mail and used it yesterday and all I can say is WOW. My hair is very oily and if I wash my hair in the morning, by the time I go to bed my hair is already greasy and it doesn't even look like I showered. Washed it yesterday morning and woke up today with oil free hair! First time I haven't had to use dry shampoo in months! It also smells amazing. I'm just upset I didn't find this product sooner!

Now reading reviews I realized a bunch of people had, unfortunately, the same problem as me. I am very disappointed with the packaging! I received my order of 1L bottle gentle shampoo today. 1/4 of the shampoo had leaked due to sloppy packaging. Did not yet test the product, can't say anything about it.

I am going to start off with, I love this shampoo. It makes my hair feel and smell great. However, I am very disappointed with the way it was shipped and arrived at my home. I ordered the large bottles and when it arrived at my home about 1/4 of the bottle was wasted in the box. Very disappointing for the price of this expensive product. I have reached out to customer service via email and attempted calling with no response. I can't say I will order directly from the site again.

Haven't used bumble and bumble products in a decade and figured I'd try them again. Didn't bother to check and see if this contained sulfates because it's become such a taboo in beauty product land. Turns out this does, in fact, contain sulfates, so I'll probably stop using it. My hair feels nice enough but I just dyed it so sulfates are out!

I have heard great things about this company so I was excited to try this shampoo. It is truly just average. It doesn't "do much" for my hair. It seems like it barely cleans it and the smell is not flattering.

I've been using the Hairdresser's Invisible Oil Shampoo for a while and liked it a lot. I switched to this on a whim and I'm going to stick with it! My hair is fine, plus the water where I live is hard and that dries it out. This is super gentle and makes my hair look healthy, even if I use it every day.

BB Gentle Shampoo does all it says it does and more. You don't need to use very much to get a great lather and my hair is very thick and very long. It feels great in my hair and does not dry it out at all. Love this shampoo and will continue to use.
Rae from San Francisco
I need a morning shower to wake up and I just HAVE to wash my hair. This shampoo is great. It doesn't dry out my hair. I can shampoo every day. And, I am OLD - 66 years. So, if I can use it every day, so can you. This has been my go-to for about 15 years??

I've been using a different brand for years, but recently started experiencing some problem areas with dryness and breakage (probably a result of me aging). My stylist swears by the entire Bumble and Bumble line and encouraged me to try this shampoo. I already use some of their other products and have never been disappointed. I waited until I had a coupon to use and then purchased this shampoo. It is another great product. Lathers and rinses well, leaves my hair soft, smells nice. I wash and blow dry my hair daily.
I'm still using up my previous product and since this is a bit pricey, I'm only using it twice a week. But I love it and will buy again.

I have very hard water and the only shampoo that left my hair feeling clean also stripped it of any and all oils. My hair tends toward oily and I it was too oily already by day 2. I wanted to try this shampoo to see if it would cleanse without stripping and it seems to! I can go three days without washing now, without looking greasy! I docked it one star because the scent is a little overwhelming and unpleasant. As always with Bb products, I wish they'd tone down the scent a tiny bit.

This product hit all the marks for me! It left my hair feeling very clean but not brittle or dry. I don't know how well it will keep my color but we will see.
Patty from Boston MA
I've used this shampoo for years. It is indeed gentle on my long colored treated hair. I'm grateful it has no fragrance as I tend to be allergic.
FaithC from CT
But because of the price, I use it sparingly as a special treat for my hair.
Deb from Georgia
I had used this years ago and wanted to use it again, course frizzy hair, and I love it! It left my hair clean and didn't weigh it down and calmed the frizz and courseness.
Rach from Rancho Cucamonga, CA
This is my go to everyday shampoo and conditioner. I change it up with the Mending line.
Cludmd from Vermont
I use this product daily and it's gentle enough yet it cleans beautifully. The smell could be improved.
Candace from Tulsa
I use this everyday and love it. It's good to use all year round as it's a rich shampoo.
Bee from New York
This is the best every day shampoo!
Ginger95 from Minneapolis, MN
This really is an incredible shampoo and conditioner combination. My hair feels softer and just overall healthier after using it. Love it!
Laura from Austin, TX
Best shampoo and conditioner combo EVER... and I mean EVER! I once used it many years ago... like 10 years ago and have loved it ever since. It will smooth the coarsest hair and make any hair feel so silky and smooth. Start with it for a finished look after styling.
NaomiN from Monterey, CA
this shampoo really is gentle and good even for color treated hair. It helps bring moisture back to my hair without weighing it down.
Desertgirl from Pasco, WA
I wash my color highlighted hair almost daily (oily scalp). Does not dry my hair or scalp out and leaves no residue. I switch to Sunday or Thickening now and then just to change it up, but this is my go to and has been for over 20 years. I've sampled brands, but nothing is as kind to my hair as Bb gentle! Wherever I've moved in my life, I always seek out a Bb salon.
