Bumble and Bumble Surf Spray

August 16, 2010

Bumble and Bumble Surf Spray ($23, 4oz) adds body to fine hair and give beachy waves. To use work through damp or dry hair and let dry naturally or blow-dry with a diffuser. The less you touch it, the longer it will hold. This hair styler gives your hair the just went to the beach look and feel. It feels slightly rough like you have salt in your hair but as the day does on that feeling starts to wear off.

Recommendation: I like this product because it gives your wet or dry hair beachy waves effortlessly and holds it through the day. The only problem I had was trying to control the frizz and fly aways after using this product but frizz is expected to be present when hair is scrunched.

Bumble and Bumble Thickening Shampoo and Conditioner

August 1, 2010

Bumble and Bumble Thickening Shampoo and Conditioner ($21, 8 oz; $22, 8 oz) makes fine hair look and feel fuller, moisturizes without weight, helps seal split ends and tames flyaways, and the conditioner also contains a silk powder which adheres to hair strands and separates for fullness. For more than $20 a bottle you’d expect big hair but that is not what you get, however, it does make your hair very soft and oil-free!

I wash my hair daily because my hair gets too oily the second day and makes me uncomfortable. With this shampoo and conditioner you can go one..two..probably even four days without washing you hair but I don’t think that’s very hygienic. Surprisingly my hair was completely oil-free on the third day but I washed it because that was too long for me already. I think there are ingredients that help absorb the oil from the hair, maybe it’s the powder from the conditioner. So with less oil on your roots you get hair that isn’t flat, being weighed down. It may not be super voluminous but you won’t have flat oily hair.

Recommendation: It won’t give you big hair but does have another benefit. This shampoo and conditioner will cut down the amount of times you will need to wash your hair because by absorbing the oil from your roots. No shampoo/conditioner I have ever used has done this and just this in itself makes the product worth it.
