I received a free sample of 3 products from octoly but the reviews are my own. I was SOOO unbelievably impressed with Bumble & Bumble BB Curl conditioner, shampoo & reactivator. I don't have super curly hair but more thick & wavy hair that gets extremely frizzy & poofed up with humidity. These products really helped to tame the frizz & give me a super sleek, shiny & clean look. The shampoo was cleansing & created a lot of suds so I didn't need a lot. And my hair felt clean & moisturized at the end—it didn't seem to strip my hair of its moisture or oils. Using it along with the conditioner left my hair so sleek, tamed all the frizz and gave me a beautiful shine without making it seem oily. I've never had products that tamed the frizz, softened & smoothed my hair to such an extent. Overall I'm really happy with their products, I was hesitant at first bc I don't have big curls, but these products work for all hair types. If you have curls it helps to highlight your natural curls & make them weightless, bouncy & soft. And if you have wavy or straight hair it will help smooth, add shine & keep frizz down & it does these things w/o harsh chemicals like parabens & phthalates. I'm so happy with how well these worked out for me & will be buying them in the future.
I was gifted by Bumble and Bumble in exchange for my honest review of the shampoo. I have very thick, frizzy, wavy hair. I have been back in forth in my opinion with the products. The shampoo has a strong fragrance which is pleasant but may bother someone that is sensitive to smells. I find that the shampoo leaves my hair feeling like straw before I put in the conditioner. The shampoo is very thick and I find I need to use a lot to get a good lather. I have been using the shampoo for over a week and my hair is curlier, but not softer. This may work well for others, but I feel that it just doesn't provide enough moisture,

Many curl lines make a lot of claims, but B&B's curl line can back it up. This shampoo is wonderfully moisturizing and detangling. It is a hard combo to find in all the myriad of curly hair care products out there. I continue to come back to the B&B line because it is just "that good". Love the scent-light but "kicky" (no heavy tropical or coconut frangrance here-yuck!) And you only need a small amount, so it is worth the money. Please do not change this line!

Don't be fooled by the images BB is using to advertise this product - they kept me from trying it for too long. My hair is short, fine and naturally wavy with volume when it is moisturized and none - laying flat on my head - when it is dry. I had not tried this line until just recently because I thought it would be much too heavy for me and was really designed for big, long, uncontrollably curly hair (like the images being used by BB) - but I was wrong. The mix of products - I've used them all in various combinations now - has revived my hair, given it all-day volume, and given me continuous good hair days. BB is missing the boat by downplaying the value of the product to people like me.

I rotate this shampoo with the Curl Conditioner co-wash. The shampoo itself is creamy and pearly. The suds are soft and rich. It tames frizz and flyaways and imparts a gentle body and good volume with a soft sheen. I use this more often in the winter during dry, indoor heating. I air style my hair, and the Curl line works well. I do use the Sunday Shampoo once a week for a deep clean. This makes for a nicely balanced routine.
Lora from Toledo, OH
This shampoo has worked wonders as helping with my hair strength and removing any residual buildup that I have before my wash days. It keeps my hair feeling light, soft, and smooth and I don't have to worry about it weighing my hair down. Definitely a must try if you're in the mood for a new shampoo.

Received this product complimentary from Bumble and bumble in exchange for my honest review. I used this on my daughter's curly hair and it helped define her curls. Used it with the leave in conditioner.
Ariela from Brooklyn
I really liked the shampoo. It smells good and makes a lot of foam. It left my hair hydrated and shiny, it reduced frizz and I'm loving my hair even on the days I let it dry naturally. I'm using it in conjunction with the Curl 3-in-1 Conditioner.

I really love the bumble and bumble brand. The shampoo and the three and one conditioner combo is great. I have wavy to curly hair, length is about longer than shoulder length. I thought the product smelled really good you did a great job at cleansing my hair. I would recommend.
Justinea from Dallas, TX
I have 2C wavy hair and have been using this product for about two weeks. So far, it worked wonders for my hair. I use this moisturizing shampoo when I wash my hair(every third day) and it has helped tremendously with the frizz that this Texas summer heat has brought. It is a gentle cleanser that leaves my hair feeling hydrated and curls looking their best.
Lexi from Detroit
I love the versatility of this 3-in-1 product. I've used it as normal conditioner in my hair care routine on wash days, and I've used it as a leave in conditioner on a day out on the lake. It has a great blend of oils that leave your hair soft and manageable. This conditioner is super moisturizing and I highly recommend it, especially if you have thick hair.

As someone with naturally wavy hair but has been straightening it most of my life, this shampoo was a game changer! It helped to moisturize my hair and bring back some of the natural wave, especially when paired with the rest of the line! Definitely recommend for wavy haired gals!
Ilse from Fort Worth,TX
I really wanted to work for me but it did not meet my expectations. The aroma was not for my liking and it did not lather that well. It was easy to remove but left my scalp dry and I notice dryness afterwards.
kristieASC from ohio
This moisturizing shampoo is perfect for my frizzy and textured hair. It helps keep my curls bouncy and has great lather and a beautiful fragrance. I've tried a lot of Bumble and bumble products and this is one of my favorites.

I use this shampoo with the curl conditioner to get the best results for my curl pattern. I have wavy hair with slight curls and this helps define my curls a bit more. I also really love how it smells and the clean feeling after using it. I definitely recommend trying it out!
sof from atlanta, ga
Excited about this shampoo! It smells really good and refreshing, without being overpowering. The texture is very creamy and feels moisturizing. I love that this product doesn't have sulfates and is safe for my curls!
Nada from Texas
I got this shampoo for my daughter who has wavy to curly dense hair, and she absolutely LOVES it! Other shampoos have all been very drying for her hair, this cleans her hair while leaving it moisturized and super soft! Her hair looks and feels healthy and she can now wash more often in summers!
Stephie from Houston, TX
Loved this shampoo. It has such a nice smell and it made my hair so smooth and less frizzy. I truly have fallen in love with how this shampoo really cleanses my scalp and makes my hair feel so fresh and nice. Highly recommend.
Bri86 from Winston Salem, NC
I received this shampoo to test with the 3-in-1 conditioner and it's quickly becoming a favorite. This is a moisturizing shampoo with a rich and creamy lather. I love how well this cleanses my hair without leaving my curls feeling like hay. A great start to a successful wash day!
kimmarie from New Jersey
Love how moisturizing this shampoo is for my 3b frizzy curls. Some shampoos strip and dry out my hair, but this one doesn't. It has such a nice scent too. I love how this shampoo is sulfate free - so important for us curly gals and girls!!
Stepha from Chicago, IL
So obsessed with this shampoo! I only need a small amount despite having pretty long hair, but it does its magic. My hair feels clean but not stiff, while the hydrating properties make my hair super voluminous.
Misha from Atlanta, GA
This whole line is amazing. I love using the shampoo and 3 in 1 conditioner to leave my curls looking and feeling amazing. This shampoo cleanses my hair and leaves it smelling absolutely incredible. Since using this line I can tell such a difference my curls are more defined and overall less frizz.
Isabella from Connecticut
I am so impressed with this shampoo and have been looking for one to improve my curls and this is it. It doesn't leave any residue and has been keeping my curls soft and bouncy. I would definitely purchase again!
Hali from Greenville, SC
I loved the smell of this product. It left my hair feeling heavy. That is the only thing I didn't love. I think that it would be best suited for hair that is not prone to oiliness. It did make my curl pattern more apparent and I was super happy with that! It just got oily after a few hours.
Shacie from Tennessee
I love this bb curl shampoo! I've been using for a few weeks now on both my daughters curly hair and they love it too! It's been so nice for their curls and has brought them back to life ! It cleanses their curls without stripping and following with the conditioner makes their hair so soft and manageable! I definitely recommend checking this out if you have curly hair!
Valtrovato from Glendale AZ
This shampoo really moisturizing like the name. I typically have dry and coarse hair but this shampoo has made it feel in a way I didn't know possible. It cleans my scalp so well without being drying.
Sabrina M. from Delray Beach, FL
I am no stranger to sulfate free shampoos but none of the products I've tried in the past have worked as well as the Curl Moisturizing Shampoo.
Even though the shampoo is sulfate free, it lathers up nicely and deeply cleanses without stripping my hair. I usually alternate between a deeply moisturizing shampoo and a shampoo specifically designed for curly hair but Curl Moisturizing Shampoo meets all of my hair's needs.
I've been using the shampoo together with the conditioner from the same line and my hair has never looked better! Ive always struggled with dry ends and knots. Since using this line, I've had no issues with tangles or knots whatsoever. My curls are also more defined and hold their shape longer than before. I love how healthy and shiny my hair looks!
