Most Helpful Positive Review Where have you been all my life? Miraculous elixir!
I have long, layered, thick, dry, curly, colored hair... and if that isn't challenging enough I live in a humid environment on the central California coast. This amazing product keeps my blow-dried hair looking fresh, fluffy and sleek for DAYS. It seems to dry faster, protect hair and requires less heat styling than any other product I've tried (and I've tried 'em all). And it doesn't flatten my hair like the oily, silicone-type serums do. It delivers slow-motion, commercial perfect, wind machine ruffled hair that lasts - and with less effort. Thank you B&B!
Most Helpful Critical Review Did not work for my hair
This did not work well for my fine hair. Weighed it down and felt very greasy. Will not purchase again.

Ethnicity: mixed (black and white)
Hair type: 2c/3a curly hair, shoulder length, heavily highlighted
Overall health: Good-Excellent
Ok.. so I'm in pretty good health, drink a ton of water per day and my hair is great condition considering all I've done to it I've the years. I've been highlighting it every 3 months for almost 2 years now.
I use WEN Conditioning Shampoo for the days I wear it straight and I use Aunt Jackie's curl products for washing and conditioning for the days I wear it curly.
When I wear it straight, I use Olaplex prior to a blow dry and Verb Ghost Oil post blow dry. Every blue moon, in addition to the blow dry, I'll use either a curling iron or a flat iron.
I only need to wash my hair like every 7 or 8 days. My hair and scalp are healthy, never dry, never oily.
Now...onto the B&B Repair Blow Dry.
Post wash, I wrapped my hair using a microfiber towel and it was on for about 25 minutes while I dried myself off, lotioned up , deodorant, brushed teeth and washed face.
When I removed the towel my hair was probably 40% dry.
I added in total about a quarter size of the product, focusing mid-shaft to ends and January residue near top.
I used my Wet brush to brush the product through my hair.
What I noticed:
Drying time was reduced maybe by about 30%.
Yes, my hair felt soft.
There is a definite reduction in flyaways.
The smell is faint and in my opinion neither good or bad.
I can tell a slight change to my hair texture (for the good) but not to the degree that some have insinuated. Its possible that may change when I clarify before my next wash.
To wrap up, I used a couple dabs of Olaplex oil and my hair looks and feels great!
To note: It has been in the high 90s as far as humidity percentage here in Atlanta for weeks on end. I have not yet braved this humidity with this product in my hair. ...
I'm looking forward to round 2 and will edit this post with any significant updates if applicable.

Currently using this to help my hair hang in there until COVID-19 is over and I can get back to my stylist. My hair suffered a serious overprocessing incident back in the fall - it was dry and crunchy no matter what I put on it. Since I starting using Bb Repair, my (overlong) hair is soft and shiny even after using a blow dryer and flat iron. Hate to think how it would look without Bb Repair at this point!
Can you to Blow Dry or Air Dry
Jenny F from Orlando, FL
This stuff is the real deal. I've had separate products for blow drying and separate products for air drying. I put this in my hair one night, planning to blow dry after washing it. I fell asleep and woke up with incredibly smooth hair that had some volume. It's also the best product for my hair when I blow dry. This product is expensive, but worth every cent.
Holy GRAIL OF HAIR PRODUCTS!
SJ from Denver,CO
I ABSOLUTELY LOVE bLOW dRY AND DESPITE TRYING MANY DIFFERENT PRODUCTS OVER THE YEARS, i ALWAYS COME BACK TO THIS ONE. My hair is left soft and shiney with decent volume.

Product is lite weight and keeps hair manageable
Didnt do much
Kalene from Temecula, CA
I feel this didnt do much for my hair. I prefer the invisible oil spray, it smells better and makes my hair smoother. I returned this, it really didnt do much. It was also very thin and runny for a hair styling product that's supposed to be repairing it didnt feel nice and thick and rich like you would expect.
Makes hair healthy again (at least look)
Ali-sun Dubs from Savannah, GA
I love love love this product. You use it with your blow dryer and it makes your hair look AMAZING. this is one product I don't want to run out of.
Amazing product... will make hair healthier
Julie from Desoto tx
This product is amazing.. it protects your hair and at the same time makes it stronger... I use it after I shower.. hair feels smooth and very nice.. it smells great... a small amount goes a long way... very worth the money....
BUY this. BEST product ever !!!!!!!
beach_girl from NJ
I have curly hair that I wear straight every day and I cringe going to get it cut because I know I'm going to hear (first wear it curly more often) and that I am killing my hair with the bow dryer and flat iron...don't care I'm still going to straighten it. This product is incredible !! I have no white ends, no split ends, my hair looks so healthy, is so soft and smells great (not strong, but like when you leave the salon). I will absolutely buy this product again, don't use a lot maybe the size of a quarter but I do it as two dime size to make sure I get my hair evenly. 5 stars, spend the money it is worth it !!
Took Decades Off My Hair
Margaret from Massachusetts
I was skeptical but this is so worth it. It completely changed the texture, density and age of my hair, I never thought this possible. Imagine the childlike hair you had before you discovered chemicals and product, maybe middle school. What was your hair like then? Hold that image in your mind then shampoo/condition as usual and then towel dry. Now, apply this starting with a dime sized amount but only from mid-shaft to ends and comb through with your detangling brush. (You won't need a leave-in conditioner or detangling product.) Now, apply another dime sized if needed (if you have long or chemically treated hair like me) only to the ends. You can now let dry naturally or blow dry. I blow dry and it completely changed my hair, it's unrecognizable. My husband who has this sort of frizzy gray Albert Einstein thing going on tried it and just WOW. He looks 40 again (he's 62.) My hair looks 12 again, I'm 45. It does seem to give my hair some hold when using heat tools so after styling I give a light spray and I'm done. Good until the next wash, usually 3-4 days. Don't add it to the roots because it will weigh the root area down. This penetrates the hair shaft that is porous and rejuvenates. The lasting effect is there with ongoing use. A little goes a very long way, a tube should last at least 6 months or longer. Yes, you can use it with other styling products, I've had no trouble doing so. But, this is my main squeeze.
Celeste from Texas
I have long curly highlighted hair, and use this on mid shaft down to roots on my towel dried hair. I let my hair air dry about 10 minutes then I follow with a Paul Mitchell clear serum at the ends as well, and start blow drying. This has made my dry colored hair so soft and shiny. I highly recommended because it prevents my hair from getting split ends. A little goes a long way, this is one product I cannot live without.
Great for damaged hair
Rach from Washington, DC
Great blow dry cream for damaged hair! Really smooths hair.
Shelly from Chicago
I have thick curly hair that I only wear straight. I want to make sure I protect my hair when blow drying and straightening it and this does it! It doesn't weigh my hair down and I feel as if I have fewer split ends.
One of my faves
Elsa from Villa Park, ca
Does what it says it does. Extra protection.
Dizzie1 from MV, NY
I use this after shampoo and conditioning to speed a blow dry. Smooths the hair and is not irritating to the skin like some leave-in products.
I LOVE it ❤️
Hchinnis from Summerville, SC
I use it maybe once a week with damp hair before air drying or using my hair dryer.
Want to love
Celticsmiles from Spokane, WA
I really like this product, and I want to love it, but it breaks me out. It is the only B&B product to do so.
My favorite styling product!
Blondelender from Chicago, IL
Fantastic product for heat protection! I have fine, straight, color treated hair. I use this product for protection against heat styling (blow dry, straightener, waver). It does a great job of protecting my hair as well as holding the style. I do not have to use any additional styling products with this, it is truly an all-in-one! I've been using if for nearly 2 years now, haven't found anything better!
Nicia from OH
I use this before blow drying and it's awesome!
Great for frizzy hair days
jlcnyc from NY, NY
This was recommended for me b/c I have many fuzzy hair days due to my dried out highlighted (for years) hair. This product makes it easy to style and restyle for up to two days after use.
Chris from Sacramento, CA
My hair is short and course and starts to get a frizzy at the ends from all the hair products and blow drying everyday. My daughter gave me one of your samples and what a difference! The texture of my hair smoothed out with one application! It was noticeable to others!
A good discovery
Neukind from CA
For coarse, straight and colored hair, this cream gives the hair lots of love. Once I figured out the right amount of cream to use, the hair behaves and feels soft, bouncy after blow dry.
Love how my fair looks and feels
pam48 from santa cruz
My hair tends to get a little frizzy but when I use this product it is much smoother and shiny.
In love with this product!
Nikki16 from Rochester, NY
This product has changed my life! I wash my hair, put a small amount in my hand, the size of a nickel, and work through my hair from top to bottom. I then brush my hair and style. My hair feels so soft after using BB Repair. I will be a forever customer of this product!
Best blow dry product I've found
Boxster1967 from Cape Cod MA
I have very fine hair but a lot of it. It's pretty damaged due to dying it a different color every month and it's dark to begin with so lots of bleach. This stuff is amazing. I've been using a spray blow dry product that I love but you have to section hair and spray one section at a time and it's wicked sticky. This you can put on all at once. No sticky. I did just from mid to roots. I didn't even need to use my oil after my hair looks so healthy! Highly recommend.
