For the last year I have struggled with my damaged hair. Just a year and a half go I literally had mermaid hair. I never had to do anything to it. I had the perfect beach waves and curls. Then I decided to start lightening it and practically chopped it all off. That was the worst decision EVER. From dying it and constant heat from my straightener(which I recently found was burnt out and frying my hair) my hair has loss all of its natural spunk. I can hardly hold a curl with how fried my ends are. My hair used to be my prized possession and compliments would happen daily. Since the destruction of my golden locks my confidence in the revival of my hair has plummeted. That was until my coworker gave me a sample of Don't Blow It. I used it the next day after my shower and was blown away with how instant my hair was reacting to it. Not only was my hair scrunching into a slight wave but I had a handful of curls appear out of no where! The next two days were bliss as I received compliments left and right. They all kept telling me how healthy, and natural my hair looked! On top of having damaged hair I also have a sensitive scalp, so many products make me break out in the ichies. Yet, not Don't Blow It!! I am completely AMAZED at this product and the hope it has given me. I was coming to terms with never getting my curls back, and it was devastating. Now, I'm leaving doubt behind, excited to have a second chance at beautiful hair again. Thank you Bumble and Bumble!!!
I'm not sure what I'm missing here. I bought this product, hoping it would give some volume without adding more damage to my hair (it's pretty thrashed at the ends). I wasn't expecting the results a blowout could give, but I see no difference at all from using this. I may as well have air dried my hair with no product at all. I even watched the videos and applied some recommended techniques while my hair was drying. I'm very disappointed.

I am using this everyday. My super fine hair has texture for the first time!

I have zillions of hair products. I'd call myself a "recovering Curly Girl Method" person who's not necessarily opposed to silicones. I REALLY want to use a single product (easy in the 'curly community' to get obsessive about cocktailing products and ending up with 4 different types of STUFF in your hair). I have very fine, fairly thin, quite long (colored) hair that can be very curly (if I really put effort in). Dries mostly wavy when I just let it air dry and don't fuss too much. This. Stuff. Is. Magical. for when I simply want to wash my hair, toss a single product in, air dry it and have hair that doesn't FEEL like it has product in it. This adds some definition, some volume and sole wave definition without weighing down my fine hair or leaving a cast. If you're expecting much hold: you'll be disappointed. If you expect a ton of curl enhancement: you'll be bummed. But if you want your fine hair to feel a little fuller, your hair to have a bit more "personality" and your waves/curls to look nicely clumped without crunch—this is your jam. Keep trying other products and return to this, constantly. On my third bottle (would be great if they sold a larger size. I go thru a ton of this).

I almost bought this a few months ago, but a store associate recommended the devacurl wave leave-in. Despite wanting to try this then, I went with the other product and wish I hadn't. I just bought this b&b don't blow it and I LOVE IT! I've tried a lot of air dry products. Nothing has given me great air dry style like this has. I wash, brush, then scrunch this into the body of my hair and throw it into a bun for a bit. I go to sleep with damp hair and wake up with beautiful waves. This really seems to bring out the best in my medium wavy hair!

I bought this full size after receiving a sample. It does exactly what it's supposed to do..adds some texture and makes my hair straight (ish) on non-blowdry days. If I through my hair up wet or twist, once dry it gives me effortless beach-y waves

I had high hopes for this product & I hated it. It made my hair very dry, frizzy & brittle feeling. I immediately returned the product.
Katt from Shawnee, OK
I've always wanted to let my fine wavy frizzy hair dry naturally. I've tried so many products that didn't work. My hair was just too frizzy. The Bumble and Bumble website suggested Don't Blow It (fine hair) and Curl Defining Cream. The Curl Defining Cream left my hair stiff. Don't Blow It was the answer to my 60 years of prayer! My hair is long and layered. This product leaves my hair soft, bouncy and frizz free. This is the ONLY product that has ever worked for my unruly hair. I don't have to blow dry, straighten and wear a pony tail all the time!

For me, it didnt do anything when I air dried it. I mean, I noticed a difference, but not much.
I got a small sample in one of those Ulta promos, so I kept playing with it.
I have finally learned it is best on my fine hair with a blow out. It makes my hair super feathery that way and really shiny. I ended up buying full bottle after that. It doesn't have a heat protector in it though, so I am shopping for that now and trying not to break the bank while still getting a cruelty free brand.

I have fine, straight hair that if I let air dry, is super lifeless and slippery. This is solved by styling products that require a blow dry, but I don't like blow drying every time I wash my hair. I tried this creme on a whim a few years ago to see if it would improve the texture of my hair when I leave it to air dry. IT DOES. OMG IT DOES. This product adds texture without blow drying, but my hair is still soft - the bottle is not lying when it says it doesn't feel like you have product in your hair. I have yet to find anything comparable to this product by other brands so I keep re-purchasing this. I go through probably 2-3 bottles a year, the con is I definitely wish this came in a bigger size.

I received a sample of this product and it's amazing! I've been doing heatless curls for the past week but most styling products recommend you blow dry your hair and I wanted something without blow dries. When I saw this I was so excited. Follow instructions accordingly. I twist my hair using the tie that wraps around a bathrobe. I sleep with it and unravel it in the morning And my hair feels so soft and curls look natural. It feels like I don't have any product at all. This product will help me maintain a healthy hair since I'll be avoiding heat products; thank you for this! Oh and my hair is super super fine and straight. With this- after my heatless curls I have volume that LASTS ALL DAY! Also, this withstands TEXAS heat and humidity! Triple plus!

This did not make my hair less frizzy when air drying. So disappointed
BoyMama from Illinois
I had such high hopes for this product! My hair is naturally very fine (although I have a lot of it) and super straight. Like, no natural wave or volume whatsoever. This did nothing to add any additional volume or wave to my hair, despite excessive twisting. I will say, though, that it didn't weigh it down or grease it up at all. Just didn't see the results I'd hoped for.

This should be a staple in every woman's cabinet. Makes my hair full of body and smells fantastic. I give all my girlfriends a bottle for their birthday's :)
Leigh from ct
I have tried every product under the sun to manage my very fine but wavy/curly and frizzy hair. THIS IS IT. I have stopped using heat on my hair and just run a dollop of this through damp hair and I'm good to go. Leaves me with shiny, bouncy volume.
Meg79 from Texas
I'm so sad this product doesn't work for me at all. It makes my hair look flatter than it already is. Maybe I'm doing something wrong?
Beth from Portland, ME
I have fine, medium-length hair that holds a wave under duress, and the way I make this product work for me is by wrapping my wet hair in a towel for about 10 minutes, then taking it down and squeezing/scrunching about a quarter-sized amount into uncombed waves. Usually it only holds well for about 12 hours, so you may want to use a hairspray after it dries. Overall, it smells nice and my hair stays soft, I would just hope for something a little more amazing for the price.
janickab from Irvine, CA
I was really surprised to see that this product works. After my first try I could still see some frizz, more or so the next day, but I'm sure once you figure out the right amount all will be fine.
LilSis from Pacific Northwest
I've only tried it once thus far, on my towel dried hair which always looks good if I blow-dry and always looks awful if I don't. Wispy, thin, flat, straggly, aging. I've used styling mousse, styling cream, everything... thought Bb's Don't Blow It would be the miracle I needed (the name suggests there are others like me, that was worth something!) but alas.... I will keep trying, maybe there's a trick. This coming summer I'll be full time off-grid camping, so I'm searching for a reason not to shave it all off (yikes). I still recommend the product because anything is worth a try!
Nancy from Kalispell
Wasn't what I want and doesn't smell that great!
sweetpotato from Oregon
This is one of my holy grail products! I have fine hair, but a lot of it, and I'm always trying to bring out the wave that naturally happens when I air dry. This product is it! First, I always brush my hair BEFORE washing, never after, because I want to promote wave as much as possible. While damp, I part my hair with my fingers and rub about a quarter sized amount in my hands and scrunch my whole head from tip to the middle and let air dry! It gives my hair body & texture, enhances the wave, and looks so touchable and healthy. I usually go 2-3 days between washing, so on days that I don't wash I will just reapply this styler in the morning and finger comb. This product works great on its own, or layered under other products!
MStr7 from Madison, WI
I got a sample of this and I'm considering buying a full-size. I definitely notice a difference in how my hair feels when I don't use it. When I do use it, my hair does look and feel thicker, it has more texture, and it has more volume all without the blow out. This is great for every lazy girl and definitely worth the dollars.
Sandy from PA
I use this product after towel drying hair. I have tried other brands and like this product the best. It is light weight, no greasy feeling. Makes my hair look healthier.
CocoNYC from NYC
Still learning. Used the Deva products for years until they were said to cause hair loss and breakage. Tossed them and bought all the Bumble stylers. Ive been using Bumble shampoo and conditioners forever. Love Gentle shampoo and Extra help conditioner. Bumble needs to create a gel for curly/wavy hair with some hold and shine...that would be perfect. Thanks for keeping up the product research! Now if only you guys could really learn how to CUT wavy curls.

I noticed no difference when using this.
Cameron from Atlanta, GA
I'm obsessed with this product, I have very curly unmanageable and frizzy hair.. since using this, My hair looks fabulous. I can put some on and go to bed with wet hair and still look amazing. It definitely looks better if I don't sleep on it but it truly looks like a nice blowout. Gives me a Farrah fawcett look with gorgeous curls and no frizz.
MaAnTe from NY
I am so happy to have finally found a product that allows me to air dry my hair without the poof and frizz!
