Bumble and bumble Surf Spray

What it is: A saltwater-based styling spray. What it does: This styling spray adds volume and texture to the hair to create a sexy, wind-blown feel. Its salt-infused formula adds fullness, hold, and a cool, matte finish. Salt water is no secret to editorial stylists for adding volume and texture, and anyone who has been in the ocean knows of that salty, sexy, sun-dried, wind-styled feel (that seems such a shame to wash out). So while Bumble and bumble hasn't exactly bottled the real thing, they've replicated and improved it, including seaweed and kelp extracts to enhance moisture. What else you need to know: Excellent for wavy types and landlocked surfers with winter blues, this spray adds body to fine hair and adds a nice texture for silver hair.

No, I wouldn't recommend it for straight hair. I have naturally wavy, and I mean WAVY hair, and this doesn't make it wavier/curlier at all, but it does give my hair a surfer girl look and makes my waves more visible, if that makes any sense. Not curlier, just bigger and more windblown. I also have baby fine blonde hair and I absolutely love this.

No. It will give your hair texture, but that isn't the same thing as waves. If you are looking for Kate Hudson-esque beach waves, this is not the product (though you might be able to combine with other products and a curling iron to get waves).

It can make your hair wavy. I spray it and dry my hair leaving it slightly wet, and then use a scrunchie and tie my hair into a bun. I do my make-up, and take it off, and it's wavy.

I don't think it will give you waves on its own if you have extremely straight hair. I put mine in up buns or braid it immediately after applying the product to my hair (still damp from the shower). I keep it up for a few hours or overnight and it helps to maintain the waves and achieve the messy, beachy look.

I don't think you'll end up greasy so much as weighted down and a little mattey if you use too much. Try it lightly sprayed on and see if it gives you the volume you're looking for. But don't use a lot. get a sample to use at home and try it a few times before buying.

it definitely will not weigh your hair down. unfortunately it will make your fine hair super crispy crunchy at the ends. i have fine, color-treated hair with a very slight wave and this product was returned. my ends were so crispy, that for fine hair, the result is just fly-away. horrible product. b.b just hasn't sold me either. i highly recommend the ENjoy line. their texture spray is awesome on fine hair when put in wet or dry. it will give you the same beachy look but with shine and without the crunch.

I also have fine color treated hair; however, my hair is also very thick. This B&B product added much needed volume and light waves that lasted throughout most of the day. I typically don't use a hairdryer until my hair is mostly dry, which I think helps keep the light wavy look. It's also important not to use a lot of the spray; a little goes a long way.

Does it make frizzy hair frizzier?
I have naturally frizzy waves that are even worse because I get it highlighted and use irons. My hair is just a frizzy mess, but I really LOVE the beach look so I've been trying every "surf spray" type of product I can find, and all they do is make my already frizzy hair EVEN more frizzy and tangled and just gross. Sure, it makes waves, but they are FRIZZY waves. Yuck!

Anyone with frizzy hair try this? I'm sick of wasting $ on sprays that make my hair look like a stray cat :(

I have coarse hair that is frizzy if I don't dry it with a round brush.
That said...this is how I use this product: shampoo; condition; while the conditioner is in my hair, I comb it out with a large tooth comb & then scrunch it up a little; rinse out conditioner; squeeze out the excess water with my towel, but don't comb it out again; spray in the Surf Spray while lightly scrunching & let it dry. It has worked great for my hair and I've had a ton of compliments. As far as the chemistry of what it's doing, I try to keep it as conditioned as possible which is why I don't comb thru it once the conditioner is rinsed out. I see that some people also use a B&B gloss type product too which may help with some of the dryness that concerns you. I hope this helps!

i don't have curly frizzy hair but i have straight frizzy hair and i don't believe that this makes frizz worse, if anything it helps a bit because of the moisture.
but from one girl with frizzy hair to another try the John Frieda collection Frizz-Ease hair serum in the extra -strength formula (it is the best de-frizzer and it doesn't leave any residue) and then put on the surf spray it makes amazing frizz free waves hope this helps!

Hi!

I have thick, frizzy, wavy hair that I abuse with every hot tool to get it straight. I have spent so much money on hair care products, so I was worried if I was going to be waisting money, but honestly, it has does wonders for my hair. It does give your hair that gritty feeling and it kind of feels dry, but you can spray your hair with the product and then add some serum in it while its still wet.

It takes my natural curls and frizz and controls them without that heavy feeling that gel gives you.

It isnt somehting I would use everyday, but It has now replaced all my other hair products (hair spray, gel etc). I think you should try it!

Have you tried a smoothing cream right after you get out of the shower? Nothing to straighen it but to tame it. Sounds like you don't need the wave spray but if you do, find one with coconut water or jojoba. They hydrate well. :)

Okay, my hair is super long (butt length) very fine and blonde (think cornsilk) and very very straight. It takes a few hours at least to dry naturally and 45 minutes minimum when i brave the blow dryer. I am a curl/wave freak. Like i seriously have the worlds biggest envy for people with pretty, tousled curls and waves. when i go to the beach, my hair just gets messy. When i discovered this product, it was like a dream come true. It takes work and time, but when you have hair this long, everything does, right? so step one: use a thickening spray on dry second-day-ish hair. bumble and bumble actually has a really really good one available. then use a blow dryer while fluffing with your fingers for a rough dry. after that go through your hair with a curling iron curling small sections quickly. what you want to do is wrap the hair around the iron, don't use the clamp and don't really get the ends curled. you don't want to hold it there for long either. the goal is looooooose undone waves all over. that should take a while and once you're done take a really light and dry hairspray(you don't wanna weigh your hair down) and spray all over while you kinda lift with your hands. Now take the surf spray and spray it all over. this should make your hair slightly damp. scrunch your hair as you feel it drying. tip your head upside down and keep scrunching until its pretty dry. DONT blow dry, this will just straighten your hair. if you really want you can blow the roots for extra lift but i don't do that a lot. when your hair is dry, flip t up and play with it with your hands. you'll have full, wavy, textured hair thats extra sexy because its so long. I know it takes a while but it really really works. i promise. good luck!!

I have stick straight hair and I usually blow dry it til it's semi-dry, then I spray the heck out of it with Surf Spray, getting the roots and ends. Then you can do several things - 1) start twisting pieces of hair to get a lot of texture 2) roll down the windows of your car and go for wind-blown hair 3) tease the roots to get some volume at the crown. I use this more than any other styling product out there!!!

Maybe use this in your hair, and then braid it or do little buns so that it "holds". I find it works better when you give it some help. If that doesn't work, I would try another product. In my opinion, it works best if your hair is already a little wavy to begin with. Good luck!

Bend over and spray into your roots and let your hair fall naturally back. Best if you can let it dry naturally without styling. Put it up with a clip loosely, and when dry, let it fall. You want the beachy messy texture. Not for sleek styles.

I would start out with damp hair,then spritz small amounts throughout,
like close to the ends,near your ears,and in the back.It should only take 4-5 sprays.If you want to,gently comb through your hair to distribute the product evenly.If you own a blow dryer,you can use the diffuser (there are instructions on how to use one online),or if you don't have a diffuser,just scrunch your hair while you wait for your hair to naturally dry.
I hope this works for you! :)

I wouldn't recommend it to try to make your straight hair wavy. However, it could add some texture to your hair. If it's very fine though, I wouldn't use it if I were you. I doubt it would do anything at all, and might even weigh it down. But if you have medium to thick straight hair, it might be good for adding some texture (aka messy in a good way/possibly volume :) But for waves, I think you'd need to use a styling tool first.

When your hair is already dry after showering, etc. spray it in, but you don't have to drench your hair- just use a light spritz all down the body of your hair, getting at the roots underneath for a lift. Then, either start piling your hair up in sections or in braids and clip to the side or top of your head. Comfortably, of course. I recommend waiting about 15 - 20 minutes and take down. You can use your fingers to separate parts or brush it for a full and poofy kind of look.

I think if you use this product on hair that already has some texture to it you will get the waves you're looking for, but your hair should be dry when you apply it. This product will not work if your hair is flat or has nothing in it (i.e. mousse, spray etc.). Since you say your hair is curly, as long as it's dry and has texture I think you'll like it. Hope this helps!

Oh yes, it works on curly hair. Just like going to the beach & not rinsing the salt water out of your hair.

I would not recommend that you buy this. After returning my pruchase, I talked to my stylist and she explained how this is a very tricky product to use. Also, it does nothing for curl structure, it is just texture, if that makes sense. You would be better off with a styling/curl product.

I would use it on thick curly hair but would use it sparingly. I would also spritz the roots for added volume.

I also have long thick wavy hair. I like the look and it's easy wash and go. It makes my hair feel tacky/dirty. but it's worth a shot. love it! not for everyday styling.

I have naturally wavy hair but it is fine. Would rather use a curl refining cream or serum than this product.

I have curls that look like ringlets done by a curling iron. If I used a few spritz (about 3-5) then my curls are more spread out and softened. It's not so much for curling though. You have to imagine what your hair looks like after you spend time in salt water.

My hair is similar to yours (it's pretty long and wavy/curly) but it's brown. I used the surf-spray, and if anything, it made my hair a bit straighter. I found it really had no effect on my hair. It just made it kind of gross and dull looking, so I wouldn't recommend it.

If you blowdry your hair after using Surf Spray, you will definitely need a diffuser (Asian hair). If not, you will have really thick and wild looking hair, like a lion's main. At least that is what happened with me.

Damp! Definitely damp hair, when your hair is dry it makes it have a very dirty feel.

I have used this product for about 3 years now so I definitely know when and when not to use it (for my hair at least). I have naturally slightly wavy hair and for me to get the perfect wave and texture, I spray it in when my hair is slightly damp-almost dry...if your hair is still really wet it doesn't do anything. If you hair is too dry, my waves come out too stringy (which I don't like). Hope this helps!

Its will work on straight hair...but will take some work. I have naturally curly hair, so for me...this with a bit of hair serum is all I really need for the beachy waves. This is a texture spray that gives the same texture spending time at the beach would give. So whatever that does to your hair, this will do. Here is a way to get the beach wave look however, will require a bit more work though, then us with natural waves:

Wash hair as normally would
Towel dry, add some curling or volumizing mousse
Blow dry hair
Once dry -- spritz hair with the Surf Spray, all over, and let that air dry
Then take a LARGE Barrel Curling Iron (I suggest Hot Tools) and curl hair away from face...in larger then normal sections (will probably have to hold for 20-30 sec per section) -- spray each section with a LIGHT hairspray
Once all hair is curled, spritz all over with Surf spray, and run fingers though

I've seen it work really well on straight hair. It doesn't really have a smell, maybe just a hint of saltwater at the beach.

It will work on straight hair! It just adds like a piece-y feeling to it. It will make your straight hair look kind of wind-blown, casual, and care-free. It kind of has a smell right when you put it on but it goes away after it dries like one minute later.

I have almost waist-length straight hair, so it is heavy, typically pulling out any wave I might have (its been long since 3rd grade) and sometimes styles fall out really easily. Honestly, this product seems to do almost exactly what sea water does, with a fresh scent (to me, its closest to cut grass) but the scent is so light that it will change depending on your shampoo/conditioner, etc.

It does give my hair a messy, casual look, which can be so hard to achieve with slick straight hair, if I use it on damp hair and it gives me crazy amounts of body when I use it on dry hair before the curling iron

Hi,

It smells fine. You might want to fool around with it, trying different amounts to see what works best. It took me three times to figure out how much to spray. Once I did too little and the other time, too much. Then I figured it out. It seems to add a lot of tumbled volume, like if my hair had been blown around at the beach. It's not so defined, so it looks pretty natural. It looks great when pulled back (after it dries) or pulled into a deliberately messy "bun."

Hope this helps.

Not at all. I have straight hair and I feel as if it it made it straighter. When it was wet and I scrunched it I thought it would sta and it did not. It did not really have much of a scent at all. Not worth the money.

It kind of works on straight hair. Spray it on when your hair is very damp and scrunch it a lot. Then spray a couple more times. Don't use a ton though.
It will make it wave a little. Mainly it will give you a piecy, separated look with a lot of body.
You can't brush it or touch it throughout the day, or it will stop working.
It smells like surf or sea potpourri or candles. It has a cologne-y beach smell. I really like the scent. Not strong and doesn't last very long, probably the first hour. I hope this helps you. :-)

It does work on straight hair but it's better if you have some body already. I'm very sensitive to fragrance and the fragrance of the spray didn't bother me but I would suggest going to a store if possible to see what it smells like.
