Bumble & Bumble Surf Spray Review


The infamous Bumble and Bumble Surf Spray! I picked this up as part of a recent Space.NK haircare haul (which can be found here) after all the reviews and raves it has had in the beauty community. It is a bit of a pricy purchase, standing at an impressive £19.50, but boy is it worth it!

If you haven’t heard of the Bumble and Bumble Surf Spray before it is a industry favourite, coveted by stylists and a big beauty award winner. In a nutshell this bottle contains a salt spray that helps to create tousled beachy sexy hair. I use this product when my hair is damp as I feel that it gives the best effect then. I have tried it in dry hair but it can have a tendency to dry out my hair further and just weigh it down. What I find amazing about this product is that it transforms my poker straight lifeless hair into hair that actually has body and movement. It adds a very soft wave to my hair and gives it texture so that it finally holds a style after being washed. I don’t use this directly at the roots as I either use the Philip Kingsley Maximiser (review here) or the L’Oreal Professional Volume Lift (review here). As it is a salt spray when used at the roots it can dry your hair out a bit but as I have slightly greasy hair naturally I don’t find this to be a problem. If you don’t it might be best to keep this product for the lengths of your hair =)

This teamed with one of the above root volume lifters and the Bumble and Bumble Thickening Serum (review here) my hair has been transformed into big, voluminious, luscious hair! It’s a hair miracle!

  • You lovely little enabler you, need this in my life have been after beachy volume without gross greasy locks for ever. Literally xxx

  • Ok I definitely need this in my life, my hair’s so boring and dull!x

  • I love it, a totally fabulous product. I chanced it on dry hair too and although it definitely adds volume it makes the hair a little crispy.

    • Yeah I don’t think it works too well on dry hair – damp hair has always been best for me!xx

  • Great post! Been looking for a blog review of this before buying it and now you’ve persuaded me to :)


  • I would love to try this with the thickening serum as I think without it may dry my hair a little! But…bit of an investment to buy both :(!

    I’ve been searching for salt sprays, as I’m increasingly finding my hair getting greasy and other products are just adding to that fact. I’ll have to check this one out. Thanks Heroine In Heels
