I had been eyeing up this product for the longest time ever and when I got wind of it on Buyapowa, I re-assessed my bank account and joined in with the co-buy! This is 'salt-infused styling for fullness, hold and a cool, matte finish'. So in all sense of a word...it's a salt spray.
You know that feeling when you have a swim in the ocean and your hair just naturally makes you look like a surfer girl? Well, this is supposed to re-create that look all in the comfort of your own home and no bikini diet in sight! Whilst researching this product I found that there was a lack of instructions as to what you actually do with it (although the packaging states to 'spray evenly on damp or dry hair. Style and let dry or use a diffuser'.) So I tried this product on both damp and dry hair to get a feel of how it works. On damp hair, I just sprayed it through my hair and scrunched the living daylights out of it whilst it was drying. On dry hair, I just sprayed it through my hair and again, scrunched like I had never scrunched before! The results? There was definite volume in my hair and it had a matte feeling to it exactly as if I had been swimming in the ocean. I was hopeful that it would create some beachy waves but I fear that my hair is far too stubborn and straight for that! I would prefer to spray it on dry hair as I felt I was in a little more control of it rather than leaving it to dry whilst damp.
Is it worth the £19.50 RRP? I would reluctantly say yes, but as I bought it from Buyapowa, I feel the £12.50 I paid for it is the better price. There are now (as I am lead to believe) cheaper 'high street' alternatives to the famous salt sprays! If you have naturally gorgeous waves in your hair then this will certainly enhance them and if not, it is worth buying just for the beautiful volume and matte finish you'll get once you use it.
You can buy this from all Bumble & Bumble stockists or on their website.
