Review of Bumble & Bumble Surf Spray by Alicina
Save your money!!! I figured out how to make this at home. Here's what to do: go to the drugstore and buy an empty spray bottle and some epsom salts. At home fill the bottle about 1/3 full with epsom salts and fill the rest of the way with warm water (leave a little bit of room at the top if you plan on adding anything else for conditioning or fragrance; I think a couple drops of jojoba oil or coconut oil might be nice; any other essential oils could be used for fragrance). I just tried it on my hair and I have the same salty, matte, cruncy beachy type of texture that the others are describing here at a fraction of the price (around $3.50 for the bottle and $2.50 for 1/2 gallon of epsom salts).
By the way, one of the main ingredients in Bumble Surf Spray is magnesium sulfate, and guess what that is: epsom salts!! There's no reason not to make this at home!
EDIT: My recipe was a little heavy on the salt--whenever I touched my hair, little salt crystals fell all over me, and they STING and itch!! Try this recipe instead: 8 oz bottle, put 2 tsp. salt (i used table salt this time) and 2 squirts of gel (I used 1 squirt Dove shine & define and one squirt of TIGI creative genius). This works great--just like Fekkai Summer Hair wave spray. And no itching!!!
