I love big hair. Let’s face it, swishing long, wavy, voluminous locks around is the closest I’ll ever get to being a Victoria Secrets angel – a girl can dream, right? An updated haircare routine video is on it’s way but it’s pretty fair to say that if a product doesn’t have the sole purpose of adding textue or volume then I’m not interested. In my eyes bigger is better and the Bumble and Bumble Surf Spray is probably one of the best products I’ve used that fits in with this mantra in a long while.
I have been lusting after this product for what feels like years! In fact I think I was after this product even before I knew Space NK existed, those were the innocent days. It has quite a cult following, wins tonnes of awards and is always named as a celebrity favourite. Bumble and Bumble label it as a salt water surf spray to add body to fine hair, that can be used on damp hair before styling or on dry hair for some instant lift. I have used a fair few salt sprays in my time and I can hand on my heart say this is the best one I have tried. I find it works best if I apply it on damp hair before I blow-dry it, just a few spritzes through the lengths and at the crown, I then blow-dry my bonce upside-down and try my best not to fiddle with it too much and I don’t pick up a hairbrush until it’s time to wash my hair again – cue mahoosive beach babe hair. This is quite an achievement for me as I have thick hair and a hell of a lot of it so to get any type of lift or texture is a huge result for me. Now word of warning if you have dry hair then this probably isn’t for you. I have quite oily hair so don’t mind the dry texture that it gives my tresses but it does leave your hair on the dry side of proceedings. If some of the Made In Chelsea girls don’t use this then I will eat my hat, it gives hair that laid-back ‘I’ve just rolled out of bed but still look hawt’ look. I instagrammed a picture of me the other day with my hair styled with a combination of this and the Oribe Dry Texturising Spray (link here), it’s a heavenly combo for my heavy hair!
I got mine from the Bumble and Bumble website (link here) for £19.50. Bumble and Bumble products might not come cheap but I’ve seriously loved everything I’ve ever tried from them. I think there are a few sites where you can get it a little cheaper, but Bumble and Bumble offer free delivery on orders over £25 and they throw in a few samples too so I thought it was a pretty sweet deal. Have any of you guys tried this? Love it, hate it – I’d love to hear!
