i really like it overall but i recommend it to be sprayed when the hair is wet and you are ready to dry it with defuser. otherwise, you'll end up with matte real tangled hair. oh, putting some oil/silicone conditioner at the end helps to calm it down too. otherwise i really like what this product does to my hair.. will i repurchase? well, if i can't find something to replace it.
I so wanted to like this! But it didn't do anything for me at all, except make my newly washed hair look like it needed a wash! My hair is long, fine and straight so maybe it just doesn't have the texture needed for this product, but I was disappointed with the results.
It leaves my hair with a weird texture...but it does the job. Although it is super-pricey for what it is (pretty much salty water with some conditioning oils), it does do what it sets out to do. Therefore, I give it 4 stars (minus one for price). John Frieda had a similar product out a few years ago...beach blonde ocean waves (i think) and it did the same thing for a lot cheaper. They discontinued it, but I think they came out with a similar product "starlit waves". i havent tried it yet, but I think i will next. If that doesnt work, I'd buy B&B again continued >>
I have to praise this product for it's versatility and it's performance with different lengths of hair. When I had mid-length hair, I would spray this all over my damp hair, scrunch, and air dry. The results were wavy and piecy mermaid hair. Now that I have a bob up to the nape of my neck (a la Julia Stiles), I spray it all over my hair and scrunch while blowdrying with a diffuser. I end up with something like this: http://www.arabia.msn.com/providersimages/special/julia-stiles.jpg. Just wavy and textured and piecy. I can see this product working for hair of all lengths. The price is VERY steep. At $26 for a small bottle, I'd rather go poor on my broke college student allowance than to go without this for a day.
It gave my hair a lot of body, but it made it a little dry and crunchy-feeling, with a sort of matte look. If you want big hair and no one's going to be running their finger through it, it's all right, but I wouldn't use it for a hot date. I'd recommend the Thickening Spray over this.
Just just just love this stuff. I've been using it for years and I stopped(due to haircut). Now I used it again last night and realized again why I love Surf Spray so much. It gives my long straight hair tons of body and texture. It has lovely fragrance that reminds me of my honeymoon at Turks-n-Caicos. : ). Bumble and Bumble rocks!!!!
This product does the trick, it does create beach hair. It does dry out your hair though, but that's what the beach does! Just spray it in and you can use a dryer or your fingers to create a messy look. I think regular hairspray does the same trick though... however this product does smell like the beach :)
Great beach hair~ Much better than the surf spray by John Frieda which seems more oily and dilute. A bit crunchy tho
i have long permed hair and this product is doing me wonders. i'm at my second bottle and don't know what i would do without it. i couldn't give five lippies because it is crunchy and not so great to the touch. also isn't too pleasant to smell. but my curls look awesome...every time.
I have very long, naturally wavy hair that is on the fine side but I do have lots of it. However, because my hair is waist length alot of the natural wave gets weighed down. I was hoping that this would add a little something extra to induce a more wavy look. I layered this over B&B Thickening Spray and B&B Styling Creme and I am sorry to say that it doesn't do too much for my hair. After spraying it fairly liberally throughout my wet hair and then using a diffuser to blowdry, the best my hair looked was slightly piecey and a little crunchy/stiff. It wasn't horribly crunchy or anything but it didn't look sexy and beachy either. I then tried using it without the other products layered in and it still didn't do anything much. The best my hair has looked with this product is on the days after I use it, when I have slept on it. For some reason that gives a messy more wavy effect. But having to do that is not worth it, especially for the price. It does smell nice though, and maybe it would work for someone with much shorter, layered hair. Ultimately, this is not for me. continued >>
