Back in high school (the 90's) big, curly hair was IN. My hair was as uncooperative as ever. I was a majorette in high school as well as a competitive baton twirler, solo and in groups. I went on to also twirl baton in college. All of these required big hair. I tried EVERYTHING. Perms, steam rollers, sleeping in rollers... My hair has a natural wave and frizz.. so what was the problem that even a PERM wouldn't hold???
All these years later, there is a solution. Bumble and bumble Surf Spray.
I had heard the stories about beautiful beachy hair and luscious waves... whatever. My hair doesn't do that. With Surf Spray it does! If you check out this FOTD post, you can see the curl my hair got.
From the Sephora website:
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.
I've been using this for about a week, in case the first time was a fluke, and I assure you... it's not a fluke. I get out of the shower, brush my hair and apply the Surf Spray first by flipping my head over and getting the underside, then by flipping back up and spraying the tops. After that, I let the air do its work. Within an hour my hair is mostly dry with pretty curls. It's PERFECT for these recent early mornings during the week where I have to run my son up to camp and not look like Medusa. My hair stays curled and soft throughout the day. This will NOT leave your hair stiff and crunchy like hair spray does.
The only thing I dislike is that I feel like I use quite a bit each time I apply, and that it won't last me as long as I'd like it to. For $23... I expect to be able to use it as long as I would a normal hair spray.
You can purchase Bumble and bumble Surf Spray at Sephora for $23 (or $22 at Amazon). I've seen Bumble and bumble travel size items at my local Rite Aid, but to my knowledge this item doesn't come in travel size form. However, maybe Rite Aid is going to carry the full line in the future? Anyone know?
