As far as I’m concerned, big hair is always good hair. A little mussed up, a little undone and roughed up. If it looks just a little lived in, I always think it looks a little bit better.
When my hair is longer it has a bit of wave, but it’s generally it’s just pin straight. I need a bit of texture, and a bit of body, so I’m a fan of surf sprays, since that’s precisely what they deliver. Or at least they should.
I’ve tried a few surf sprays out there, and the results have been very mixed. I’ll be writing about a few, but the first and foremost product, as far as I’m concerned, is and remains the Bumble & Bumble Surf Spray.
First up, it works. When my hair is damp I spritz the product all over, and I can either hit it with a hair dryer for instant body and texture, or I can let it air dry, and I’ll get more of a natural look. Either way, it works.
I’m a sucker for the packaging — the bottle is actually rubber, isn’t that cool? It’s a nod to wet suits that I’m all about. And is about as close to a wet suit as I’ll likely ever come to again, since the last time I was in one I was in Australia, fell out of my kayak, and felt like I was going to drown because I was lame.
But I digress.
The Bumble & Bumble Surf Spray smells great, and I think the price point is reasonable. A bottle will last me a few months, and I use the product liberally, so I think you’re really getting bang for your buck. Well, I guess “bangs” might be more appropriate.
