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.

answer 1
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).

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.

answer 1
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.

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!

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.

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.

I think there's a good chance it will dry your hair out- it did that to mine. I can only use this around once a week because of this. I like the results and it's easy to use, but my hair is majorly dried out for a couple of days following the use of this. My hair is highlighted, so I'm sure it's more susceptible to drying out, however.

If you use the product liberally on dry (not damp) hair and do not style it with any heat tools, it may appear to dry it out, the way your hair might look if you get it wet in the ocean and let it dry.

Hi,

Bumble and Bumble has added moisturizers to protect hair. I haven't noticed any drying of my hair. It did take me three times to get the right amount - once I put too little and once too much - but it's been easy since. I have long hair and wasn't sure what would be too much, but now I know. It certainly saves on styling time, which is why I tried it.

If you don't like it, Sephora has an excellent return policy. But I can't imagine wanting to return something this good.

Hope this helps you make a decision.

Gives you the look if you were on the beach with the salt water in your hair with the wind blowing. Take salt (sea or other), mix with water, put thru your hair, use your hair dryer to "blow" it somewhat dry using your hands and turning your head upside down, use some hair oil if you want, and some scrunch gel to get more definition (or you just have too much friz).

I used it on dry hair, haven't gotten a chance to air dry with it in, and it worked really well. Perhaps not as wavy as it could be, but very voluminous and great texture.

I haven't used this spray yet (am buying it now!) but in the past with surf/wave sprays, you generally spray it on damp hair and then can either scrunch or I actually twirl sections of my shoulder length hair around my finger and let it dry, then rake it out with my fingers for the perfect messy-ish beachy wave. That said, I have also used a smaller amount on my dry, previously waved hair to refresh it (say, next day) or simply wet the tips of my fingers and scrunch a little. Definitely air day--no hair dryer. BTW my is is fine strands, but lots of them.

If your hair is DRY and already has texture (like the day after you've washed and styled it) it should work for you. That seemed to be the case for me. On wet hair it did absolutely nothing.

Yes, you're going to get the result you desire with just a little bit of product and a little scrunching. Spray on dry hair and tip your head over and spray some more. swing your head up and check what you've already got going on, but then scrunch if you want move wave. You can spray a lot and scrunch a lot and get super curly (as long as you don't have stick straight hair, but a little does go a long way, so check before you use more.

Just out of the shower, I comb through my hair with a shower (wide-tooth) comb and then apply a few sprays throughout my hair. I scrunch some, but the more you touch your hair the frizzier it will get. Then I let it air dry and I have nice beachy waves.

I think so, since I was looking for the same result you're seeking. The product is conceived to be used on semi-wet hair, after you've taken a shower and dried it a bit with a towel. I do "shape it" with my hands after applying the product. When it starts drying, you can start to see the big waves and slight curls. It gives you a lot of volume though, so make sure you're confortable with that before purchasing. It does eliminate freeze —so it's volume without the freeze.

I sprayed the product in towel dried hair and then used a diffuser until dry... unfortunately it didn't give me the outcome I was hoping for. It made my hair go frizzy and it felt like my hair was sooo dry after use. I won't be purchasing this product again...

Please both of my reviews regarding this product. You need oil, sea salt and whatever fragrance you wish to add in a spray bottle and it's the same thing...olive oil is better than corn and vegetable of course! You may try adding the oil you wish.

You can use this product on damp or dry hair. Spray evenly throughout your hair. Style and let dry (stand in the wind) or use a diffuser.

Question
wont this dammage my hair?
i was just wondering if this would be bad for my hair. obviously your trying to convince people its not. but the sea salt does not sound like a good thing. it just sounds like its going to dry out your hair and i am guessing that the salt would open up the cuticles and reacting with the sun seems like it would just dammage it more. your supposed to keep the cuticle closed so that its protected so i wouldnt want to put a bunch of salt on it. plus my hair is already huuge and wavy and crazy so i'd be worried about how it would react with my hair. it just doesnt seem like a product i or anybody would want to use because of the dammaging effects i want to keep my hair as moisturized and sealed as possible. but most people don't know anything about hair so they just go on like no big deal.

It hasn't damaged mine....I have color treated, long, fine hair and it just returns to its natural texture (which is extremely smooth) once I wash it out. I've used it for a month + and haven't seen any changes in mine hair. It reminds me of hair spray. Makes it sticky with body while its in the hair and washes out just like any other product.

I bought this product to take to the beach and I did not feel like it damaged my hair at all. I have very thick wavy hair and I did not think it made my hair bigger than it already is. In fact it looked more defined. I would say if you are concerned about hydration use a leave-in conditioner (like bumble and bumble's leave in or rinse out conditioner) to add a layer of moisture and protection. That's what I did.

I didn't find this product to be damaging at all. I also don't use it everyday. I use Bumble and Bumble shine product before I even dry my hair and then I apply this product while my hair is almost dry. It does't make my hair wavy or frizzy it just adds texture and volume. Good product...just a bit pricey.

I think if you used this every day, it could be a little damaging, but if you wash your hair every day or every other day like I do, it won't. I use a deep conditioner once a week and I don't think that it's any more damaging that driving around in a car with the top off every day..
This is not a product that I would use all the time

I would definitely avoid it, salt is damaging and very drying for the hair. If you read the ingredients, it's not sea salt used it's epsom salt. Plus if you already have naturally wavy hair, you really don't need it, there are other cheaper ways to give your hair a beachy effect, and if you want to making your own sea salt spray can work too. This product would be good for people with finer hair although I have fine, limp short hair and it doesn't work for me.

I dont think it's a product they are thinking people are going to use this product everyday. I think the heat and color abuse we subject out hair to is far worse then spraying a little salt on my hair. I live by the beach and go into the ocean almost daily during the spring/ summer and my hair feels much worse after I get my hair colored.

If you have concerns, I'm sure you could call a bumble and bumble salon and speak to a stylist. I bet they could tell you other product that you could you to help you get a beach wave style.

As someone with fine, straight hair that tends to be oily, I can also say that this product tends to be drying. In my case, I don't mind it so much. However, I still make sure I add extra conditioner to the ends of my hair, since they are on the dry side. It definitely makes combing more difficult. If your hair is already wavy and dry, I would advise you to stay away from Surf Spray.

My hair is naturally wavy and I recommend you do NOT try it if you are concerned about dryness. This product added body, but did not enhance my natural waves. It dried my hair out horribly. It took a couple weeks for my hair to recover.

If you already have pretty thick, full curly hair, this might be too much for you. It really makes my curly hair quite full and replicates a day at the beach wonderfully.

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

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.

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. :-)
