BounceCurl Light Creme Gel Review 2017

I remember when I first came across BounceCurl on instagram, and wasn't sure if they were a genuine brand.There feed had lots of pictures of different curl types, looking absolutely flawless and I remember thinking "This looks too good to be true".Nearly 1year later from making my first purchase, I'm so glad that I came across there light creme gel.BounceCurl have grown as a business by a lot since I first purchased from them in 2016, and I wanted to do a updated thorough review on this brand, to help those that are maybe buying for the first time or want to know more about the new formula.I also just want to mention quickly, if you're new here, that my reviews are 100% my own honest opinion and this is not sponsored/advertisement.Also welcome to my blog and I hope this post helps you with any questions that you have.

To start off, I wanted to provide two images of my hair back in 2016, to show the curl pattern differences and what this product did for me.The first picture is when I used BounceCurl for the first time and the second picture is 1month later:
I first reviewed this product back in March 2016, and I was really surprised by the results.My curls had more definition than any other product that I used on its own, and the shrinkage was reduced by a lot.A month later, I was still happily using BounceCurl, because it added so many great benefits, but I will go into this in the next paragraph, as these photo's were taken with the old formula.During this time, BounceCurl had completely sold out of bottles, and because they/I only had the 8oz size(238ml), I had to use it sparingly.My hair was still happy with using just a small amount, but I did need that little bit extra because I love me some definition!

BounceCurl ended up going out of stock for ages, and I wondered if they ever would return with there product.BounceCurl eventually restocked, and not only had they introduced 12oz bottles with new products added to there range, the formula was changed too.I'm not going to lie, I was seriously on panic mode, because I was like "what if my hair doesn't like it?" or "Why did they change the formula when it was practically perfect?" Ok so I might of over exaggerated on this, but if you have curly hair, then you know the struggle is real!At the same time, I had complete faith in the creator too, because she would always give everyone updates, let everyone know what was going on and what her customers thought.I ended up leaving it too long and they went out of stock again, but after seeing raving reviews on the new formula, I had to purchase a 12oz bottle once they came back into stock.Whats a really great benefit now, is that if you're in the UK, you can order BounceCurl from Beauty By Zara.Back then I had to order from BounceCurl directly, and although I didn't have an issue with the courier, it was the custom charges that had me like "urgh"
This was photo was taken the same day that it was delivered (August 2016) and that I had used BounceCurls new formulated light creme gel for the first time.I was so over the moon with it and was so shocked on how amazing the new formula worked for me.There are a lot of benefits of this product and below I've provided a list of them:
  • Does NOT contain Parabens, Mineral Oils, PEG's, Synthetic Dyes, Sulfates and Silcones
  • Is NOT tested on animals
  • Contains Black Seed Oil
  • Contains Jojoba Oil
  • Contains Aloe
  • Contains Panax Ginseng Root Extract
  • The product won't weight your hair down and will allow you to create volume
My hair loved the first formula, but loved this one even more as its a mixture of a gel and cream.This made it a lot more easier for myself and other curlies to apply to the hair, without having that sticky feeling afterwards.The added ingriedents of Jojoba Oil, Black Seed Oil, Aloe and Panax Ginseng Root Extract, are all perfect to make your hair healthy and to restore any lost moisture.It also strengthens the hair and believe me, my hair used to be so damaged and brittle.

Here is a photo of the two very different formulas, so you can get a better understanding of what I meant earlier:
I used to use this product alongside my Aussie Leave In Conditioner, but since then I've found other products that work with BounceCurl better.I now either use it on its own for Day 4+ hair or alongside the Camille Rose Naturals Curl Maker for extra definition and to hold up a perfect bun.It works with certain shampoo's and conditioners, but this is just down to trial and error.I've found for me personally, thats its worked great with everything that I've used, but my favourite is the recently discovered L'OrĂ©al Curl Nourishment range (review here) which is shown in the first picture below.
And my favourite styled hair using Bounce Curl, alongisde Camille Rose Naturals Curl Maker:
My hair has changed a lot thanks to this product, and by reading (or scrolling) you can see on how much my curl pattern has changed.Its more healthy, my hair no longer breaks from just doing a simple task like finger detangling, its more nourished and I get a lot of definition.Out of all of the curly hair products that I've purchased or have been sent to be for review, this is 100% my favourite one.Its not just the product itself that makes it amazing, but its also the team behind BounceCurl and also the lovely lady that created this product.I've seen it myself that it works for all different hair types and ethnicities, which is just so amazing to see.I know it sounds like I'm going a bit over the top with it, but when you have found your perfect curly hair product, how can you not be this happy?I hope this post has removed any doubts and answered your questions, but if it hasn't, please feel free to leave a comment below or contact me on any of my social media channels.I'll soon be trying out the BounceCurl vitamins since leaving another brand, so I'll update this post with a new link once the post is available :)  More information can be found on BounceCurl here and can be purchased in the UK from Beauty By Zarađź’•đź’•
