Bumble and Bumble Surf

While I was in London I finally picked up some things from the brand Bumble and Bumble - two kits to be precise-. And as I was going on my summer holiday to Bodrum and really wanted to get beachy strands of hair, I thought this kit would be perfect to put in my suitcase. The shampoo and conditioner come in a small version too which makes it even more travel friendly. Yeeh!

Now I have heard great things about the Bumble and Bumble Surf line. I know the Surf Spray is like the best thing ever and I have seen many bloggers and vloggers rave about this line for years and years. Time to finally test it myself.

Bumble and Bumble Surf Foam Wash Shampoo -travel size- 60ml £6.50 
Bumble and Bumble Surf Creme Rinse Conditioner -travel size- 60 ml £7.50
Bumble and Bumble Surf Spray -full size- 125ml £22.00

As a girl who loves the feeling of freshly washed hair -I used to wash it religiously every single day- I now only was my hair 2-3 times a week. Nothing a bit of dry shampoo can't conquer, am I right? That is also how I used this shampoo and conditioner set. I have been using it for 2 weeks now and I am almost halfway through the bottle. Because my hair is quite long one shampoo rinse doesn't do the job with my long locks, that’s probably why it’s already half full.
Now I have to be a bit honest here and say that I am not as blown away as everyone else. Yes, it does the job of cleaning and moisturizing my hair really well and it does add a bit of texture and volume, but is it worth that much money? I doubt that. I have tried many hair care products in my life to know that there are better and similar products out there that are way cheaper. One thing I do really like is the scent. It brings you right back to those summer days on the beach.

I also tried the Surf spray which again has the same scent. I have tried the Toni & Guy Sea Salt Spray before and I find it's quite similar. After applying a couple of spritzes and blow-drying my hair with the dryer in our bathroom -it took like 15-20 minutes to dry my hair, the struggle was real haha- I did see a bit more volume and puffiness in my hair. I also experienced that my hair got greasier way faster than usual, which made me wash my hair a bit more often than I normally do. I don’t know if that's because of my SPF –I put that stuff everywhere- or the Surf spray. 

Overall, I think it's a nice range of products. Would I repurchase them? Probably not. Okay, maybe for the scent I will haha. I think that there are so many other products in the drugstore that work just as good and are way better for your bank account. But maybe that's just my poor student point of view haha.

Have you tried anything from the Bumble and Bumble Surf range?

  1. Bodrum is a beautiful place, I hope you had a great time there! I only tried a few products from B&B. I want to try that surf spray as everyone is raving about it, but the price puts me off.

  3. This sounds like a great line and I've tried the Surf Spray but because I have naturally curly hair, I don't believe it had work very well for me. Great review though. x

    1. Aah that's too bad! Bumble and Bumble also have a line for curly hair I think. Have you tried that one? X

  4. Thanks for the review! I hear a lot of good things about Bumble and Bumble, but sea salt type sprays always seem to tangle my hair. The scent sounds like it's amazing, though!
