Pretty much a waste of money. It seems like scented water more than anything. I have fine texture hair, and this product made my hair feel like straw. No thanks. Too expensive.

I took down a star because the smell of this stuff is rather bad. To me it smells like the sidewalk outside after it just started raining (pretty much like dirt.) This is an amazing hair detangler though (best that I have tried) which is why I continue to use it even though I can't stand the scent.

I initially bought this product on the advice of a hairdresser at a Bumble and Bumble salon after a haircut. When I first used it, I absolutely hated it - it made my hair dry, straw-like and frizzy.
Now I discovered how to use it and I really like it, even though it's very expensive for what it does. I use it now to revive my hair between washings. I have very fine, thin, curly hair, dry hair and I normally had to wash my hair everyday because it got greasy at the roots.
Now I wash my hair only every few days. On the days I don't wash my hair, I rinse it in the shower, and spray this product on my damp hair - I focus on the roots and use quite a bit of product. I then run my hands through my damp hair to distribute the product.
My hair looks great afterward, and I also think it looks way healthier now -- it used to be very dry and I had trouble with split-ends, etc.
Overall, despite the expense, I would buy this product again. I really like not having to wash my hair everyday, and I would definitely recommend it for people with fine hair.
Edit to add - if you have fine dry hair like I do, don't use this product on the same day you wash your hair - it will make your hair much more dry. I was ready to throw this product in the trash because of that.

ACK!! I bought this spray to use as a quasi vitamin serum for my hair. I loved its ingredients: hops, rosemary, biotin, amino acids. But this didn't moisturize OR make my hair look healthier. And for some reason, Bumble and bumble's fragrance irritates my scalp like crazy!! I don't know if the culprit is the diazolidinyl urea (formaldehyde-releasing preservative) or limonene (irritating fragrant component). But I couldn't stop itching my scalp and was losing way more hair. I have this problem with Aveda as well.

I use this as a next day style refresher and it works wonderfully to perk up my hair and bring back the bounce and texture. This is a must have b+b product for me!

Love this product. Helps detangle and prep hair for product. I always use this as it helps other product distribute evenly. Think of this as a primer for the hair. Smells lovely as well.
Edit: I have used this, as my friend is an assistant and I borrowed it for a while. She later told me this is intended for untreated hair. Tonic is better suited for colored or chemically treated hair.

I have long fine hair and this doesn't do a thing do it but make it more dry. It certainly doesn't add moisture, which is what I want a leave-in to do. I wanted it to protect my hair from blow drying and my ends were rough and dry after.

I have long, thin hair and it's a struggle for me to find leave-in products that add moisture without weighing my hair down or making it look greasy. A tiny amount of Prep adds moisture and controls frizz and keeps my hair healthy. I usually spray it all over my palms, then "scrunch" it into my hair with my fingers. I bought a 2 oz bottle in January, use Prep every day or every other day, and I still have half the bottle left. Very good value for money. I highly recommend this product to others with a similar hair type.

Prep is some sort of hair primer, I didn't know we needed those (I don't even use a face primer), but now I can't live without. =) It smells great IMO, but the best thing about it, is that it detangles my hair after washing and makes it SO MUCH easier to deal with. Also it makes me able to go one day longer without washing my hair: I make my hair a bit damp, spray it on followed by a bit of thickening spray, and style it with my hairdryer.

I love this stuff. I love the way it smells: fresh, a little citrusy, and kind of unisex. It is ideal for restyling hair in the morning. If you spray it on the root area and comb it through, it helps redistribute your hair's natural oils down the hair shaft. This is great for people who have long hair and don't wash it everyday (shampooing is too drying on a lot of people's hair to do it everyday), because it will freshen up your hair without a wash. It also feels great to spray it on the scalp if your scalp is dry or itchy, and you don't have to worry about it making your roots greasy, because it doesn't coat the hair. This was so much better than the Oscar Blandi Jasmine Protein Mist for Restyling Hair. That product could be kind of coating, and yet was not very effective. But this is so different. As much as I love it, I can't say it's purely essential - Sephora is out of it right now, so I'm doing without, but I miss it! It's pricey too, and I'm a cheapskate, but I will definitely buy it again. I recommend getting the little mini bottle to try it out.
