The Weekend Post #17: Sunday Shampoo


Is there a more appropriate day to write about this shampoo? No, I think not! I asked you guys for your clarifying shampoo recommendations and a ridiculous amount of you suggested the Bumble and Bumble Sunday Shampoo. I have been using it for the past two Sundays, I’m due to use it again today, and I can say already it’s going to be a repurchase!

Formulated to remove product residue, hard water minerals, pollutants and general hair greasiness, this super clarifying shampoo leaves my hair feeling squeaky clean. I don’t use a lot of product in my hair but it does get quite greasy quickly and since using this I have been able to wash my hair only twice a week which would have been unheard of before. I wash it once on a Sunday with this and then midweek with the Phyto Volumising Shampoo and my hair feels great, no more of this washing it once every two days business! I was in love with the Boots Expert Anti Build-Up Shampoo, but I find when using the Bumble and Bumble Sunday Shampoo I need to use much less product. A 50p-sized blob does my whole bonce. Although the Boots one is about a quarter of the price so is definitely one I’d recommend if you fancy saving a few pennies. The only peeps that should steer clear of this are those with colour treated hair, but if your hair is looking a little lank or looking dirtier quicker than usual then a rinse with a clarifying shampoo at the weekend should sort you out!

I got my bottle from the Bumble and Bumble website, which I would highly recommend. When you spend over £25 you get free delivery which was really fast, so I also picked up the cult favourite Surf Spray plus you get to pick a complimentary free sample; I went for a 50ml tube of their Deeep Repair Masque so I’ll let you know how that goes. The Sunday Shampoo retails for £15.50 and as I use such a small amount on a weekly basis I can see the bottle lasting me a fair amount of time. I must do an upated haircare routine soon as I have been using some seriously wicked stuff recently! What are your thoughts on Bumble and Bumble products? I have always been rather impressed! I think their Volumising range might be next on my list!


  • Ooh, I like the idea of a Sunday shampoo. Great review:) I may wait a little to purchase though as I’ve just fallen in love with the Redken Extreme shampoo but when the novelty wears off. I might try and remember to consider throwing this one in to the mix. I’ve heard good things about (but never tried) Bumble and Bumble haircare before.

  • o wow this sounds amazing, my hair is similar to yours I have to wash mine every other day so only washing twice a week sounds like a dream!  def gonna give this a try! x

  • I love the B&B Deeep Repair Masque.  When I was in Florida my hair got really dry really quickly, and I was desperately trying to find something that would sort it out, and Deeep did the trick!  Loving the sound of Sunday Shampoo.. might have to spend some pennies! x

    Ah, I looked at this however being an avid dyer of my hair I thought I might give it a miss. If anyones experienced this with dyed hair and knows the results I would be keen to hear about it!

    I’ve never heard of this but I’m looking for something that’s good for getting rid of build up so I might try it out 🙂

  • Kerry Lidgett

    LOVE bumble and bumble!! I absolutely adore the ‘shine on’ spray in the gold bottle and surf spray. Both smell amazing and give fab results…when you use sparingly!!! Look forward to an updated hair routine xx xx

  • I can’t believe I’ve never tried Bumble & Bumble! Will definitely have to buy this! xx

  • I really need something that gets rid of build up. I’d really like to try this but I might give the boots one a try first :). xxxx 

  • Niks_123

    Defo thinking about picking this up. Washing my hair twice a week would be SO much easier!!

  • Lucy Roach

    I’ve always wanted to try Bumble and Bumble! Is the salt spray good? x

  • Thanks for the suggestions. I’m definitely up a ‘time saver’ shampoo.  Most people on Youtube/bloggers have DRY hair/skin so it is so helpful to hear from someone who is probably closer to my hair/skin type. I definitely trust your recommendation. Hope you’ve had a fine weekend. Cheers.

    This product sounds absolutely amazing, especially as my hair seems to be very similar to yours before using this shampoo, thanks for sharing the tip 🙂 xx

  • sophia

    I’ve heard some amazing reviews about Bumble and Bumble 🙂 might have to try them! xxx

  • I used a Bumble and Bumble shampoo some time ago but to be hinest I must say that I did not notice that It did too much for my hair, maybe I should try this one! For the moment I’m using a moroccan oil + Lush shampoo which is working really well for me! 🙂

  • Lil_mis_sweetie

    Aww I was geiin all excited until you said not for colour treated hair. Why is that? does it strip the colour? Is that all clarifying shampoos or just this one? Thanks for the reccommendations xx

  • Holly

    so keen to try this out! thank you x 

  • Ella

    Upon your recommendation I bought the Phyto Volumising Shampoo and was super impressed! Will have to purchase this one too! My hair looks absolutely horrid after two days! xx

  • honeytopaz

    I’m definitely going to try this out soon!

  • Victoria

    Ooh, I’m tempted! My hair gets greasy soo quickly. I have to wash it every day! 🙁
