I'm a product pessimist. The more people rave about stuff, the more sceptical I am about their supposed miraculous qualities. Call me cynical but usually I don't believe the hype. Although when products stay on my radar for a while (and people keep going on about them), I start to get curious. Enter Bumble and bumble's Surf collection (particularly their Surf spray which I've actually heard mixed reviews about). In general, I'd say I pretty much fan girl over any of their products, and if like me you have fine hair, then you'll probably understand why. I posted about Bumble and bumble's thickening spray AGES ago. Then more recently about their Invisible Oil shampoo and conditioner. I seriously can't get enough of the stuff. So when I jetted off to Boa Vista last month, (although it feels like a lifetime ago now, sob), and they generously offered me a review of their Surf range, I obviously bit their hand off! I mean how else was I going to ensure the perfect beachy, mermaid hair while we were in paradise?

When it comes to holidays, I'm firmly a beach girl. Sure it's nice to lounge by a pool every now and then, but nothing beats being by the waves and feeling the sand between your toes. Plus all that salt water does wonders for your skin! But getting the ultimate beach hair isn't as easy as Pinterest and Instagram would have you believe. Usually it's much easier to achieve a full head of rats tails then nicely preened curls. Between the sand, salt water and wind, I find that my hair becomes really tatty unless I'm prepared. And of course that means being equipped with a tangle teezer and a bottle of salt spray. Over the years I've tried out countless different sprays.. from Loreal's Beach Fizz Play Ball to Toni & Guy's Sea Salt Texturising Spray. But none of them have helped me achieve the perfect mermaid hair. It's a delicate balancing act of finding one that will create volume that lasts without making my hair look like it's full of product. And that'll achieve maximum curl without feeling crispy. So when I first heard about Surf Spray, I was dying to see if this was the answer to all my messy (but not too messy) hair dreams..

Although it was mostly the Surf Spray that I was looking to try out, the range includes the Surf Foam Wash Shampoo and Surf Creme Rinse Conditioner. With its nice and foamy texture, the Surf shampoo gives you that ultra clean feeling you need after leaving the beach with a head full of sand. The Creme Rinse then gives it the perfect dose of moisture to stop you feeling like all that sun has dried your hair out. Although it's aimed for holidaying, this set is the perfect treat for those weeks where you've abused your hair with a little too much dry shampoo.. When I get back from Glasto, I can see this being the perfect set to fix my dry shampoo/tent/rain/mud/beer soaked locks. As for the Surf Spray, I'm pleased to say it's taken the crown for my current favourite salt spray. With a crisp, fresh fragrance and a lightweight mist, it leaves your hair feeling textured. But not crispy with product. Perfect for post-beach, pre-night out hair styling. Or if you just want to get those cute, 70s bohemian tresses and you need a bit of texture. Since coming back from holiday (and with my own thin hair related issues), I've actually been using the spray now on a daily basis. Just after I've finished blowdrying, I give my hair a little spritz (at the roots for lift, and the ends for textured curls), scrunch it up and I'm sorted for the day. At £21.50 it's pretty pricey for a big bottle, but then I've been using it daily since April and I've still got quite a lot of product left. If you're not quite sure if you want to make the dive, you can pick up mini bottles of Surf Spray for half the price. But I can almost guarantee you'd be straight back out to buy the full size!

  15. I'm with you when it comes to the hype - most of the times I don't believe it but when people keep going on about it, I do get curious about things too!

    I've been meaning to try this spray but still haven't gotten round to buying it yet - I love the messy beach hair waves as it's casual but looks great during the day and evening especially when you don't want to do too much to your hair on holiday!

    Loving your photos too, everything looks beautiful!

  17. Your photos are so gorgeous! I wish I was on a beach right now! I've been searching for salt/ surf sprays, as I'm increasingly finding my hair getting greasy and other products are just adding to that fact. I'll have to check this one out. Thanks Heroine In Heels
