Most Helpful Positive Review Life changing!!!
I bought the trial size of this product on a whim at my last haircut. I have been getting my haircut at Bumble and bumble downtown and have used almost exclusively B&b products for 11 years... I love them - but this is the first review I have ever been inspired to write a review.
I have fine hair that air dries in an annoying uneven wispy curl pattern. My routine is to blow out my hair, and then recurl it into loose waves with a curling iron... I typically use some combination of prep, thickening spray and blow dry lotion with inconsistent results...
The first time I used this foam spray blow dry I achieved hair perfection! It adds so much control, shine, bounce and volume, but with a certain dryness and grit that allows it to hold curl, and minus any kind of grease or residue (I found that with the thickening foam mousse). I don't know that I'd describe the end result as beachy - but I'm sold!
Most Helpful Critical Review Inconsistant quality of product
I loved the B&B Surf foam Spray I bought in a Salon in Chicago and again in Florida, then I directly ordered from the B&B web site..... the content of the spray was much different- totally clear and without any substance...performed poorly. I shook the can well, made sure the nozzle was clean and tried again.....still performed poorly. I contacted B&B directly via customer service E-mail with the lot # and product code however never heard back from them....it's not worth paying to ship the product back. .... the apparent inconsistent quality for a high priced product like this is puzzling.

My hair is half wavy, half straight. I give my hair a quick spray across ends, let it air dry, and it gives that textured beachy wave to the rest of my hair!
It's like coming from the ocean
Sues from Southern California
I live in Southern California, and grew up going to the beach as much as possible in the summers. You were out in the ocean all day and the next day, your hair just did better style wise after a day in the Pacific Ocean. I'm older now and I don't get to the ocean as much, but this products is fantastic and does the exact same thing as if I had just been to the beach. Also, I have fine hair and this product doesn't weigh it down at all. One other thing i discovered, it seems to work great anywhere I go in the world and works even better certain places. I don't know if you've ever noticed how products seem to react differently depending on where you are and the difference in the water....this product has been with me on every vacation all around the world and is still just as great. I highly recommend it. Enjoy!
Doesn't do anything except make hair dirty
Shorty from Portland OR
I tried this twice. First I blew dry with a brush, and the second time I used a little less and blew dry with hands. Both times my hair looked dirty and was not more voluminous or wavy/shaped. The first time my hair felt stiff and gunky, but when I used less it wasn't like that and felt softer. My hair is armpit length, fine, and relatively straight naturally. I'm returning this!
this product makes my hair oily.
Nata from Orlando, Fl
this product makes my hair oily. I love the products of this brand, but I can't use this product, unfortunately.
lovesurfcollection from New York City
I love volume for my hair so I use it at the roots. Do not recommend spraying it on your bangs but definitely roots for more lift!
Gives silky hair nice texture
Melanie from Georgia
This is a great product for fine straight silky hair! I section off and spray at my roots. It definitely helps give it a gritty texture, but not in a bad way. Doesn't make it greasy looking either like most products I've tried before.
1 star for a reason
macklady from MI
*****5 stars because it works great on dried hair.
*1 start when applied to damp/wet hair it became crunchy and stringy-like.
I wouldn't buy this product again. Taking it back.
CHall from Louisville, KY
Not what I expected. Made my hair dry, instead of the beach-swept, body look I was going for.
Adds grit not grime to fine hair
Dawniegirl from Rocklin Ca
This product works great for adding volume and structure to fine straight hair that resists styling. It adds the right amount of "grit" to hold a style without the grease, grime, and buildup of other products.
Love love love
Cammy from Oklahoma
This gave me great texture and some waves when my hair was shorter. I used it all the time. Be careful, though, a little goes a long way.
thulegit from atlanta
This spray is great! It gives my hair texture that I've never been able to achieve. I typically use this after my hair is half dried... blast for a few with heat and then I'll use a curling iron for loose waves-- and my hair stays like that for a few days... which is amazing! No more flat asian hair! I'm sold on this company and their products!
I'm about to buy another bottle
Laurel from Middletown, NJ
A little goes a long way. It took me 3 months of almost everyday use before finally running out. It gives my hair a nice boost and holds for a while.
Amazing for Curls, and dont need to blowdry
Emesgee from Virginia
This mousse sprays evenly like a hairspray almost not a clump of mousse so it's perfect for getting an even amount all over vs clumps of stiffness, so it's great to evenly coat and support my curls, does not need to be blow dried if you dont like to heat style. I use this at my roots mostly with a quick spray all over. Lift and definition. Have repurchased multiple times!
A must have!
KFD4 from Atlanta, GA
I'm loving the undone, voluminous look and this helps me get it every time! I layer with prep, a quick spray of this, and then blow dry. Gorgeous texture and volume!
Michelle777 from Maryland
This product works great for volume. Only need a small amount
I love this product. I'll buy again
Phyll from Salem MA
I love this product because it makes my hair full and wavy.
I love it made my hair more curly

I love it and would buy again
Wonderful for fine hair
tmwright10 from Grant, AL
This does a great job giving my hair volume. I have very fine, thinning (older) hair. I usually use so called "anti-aging" Products, with no results. This spray is very light and concise. I blow dry, put in velcro rollers and let them go. So easy for summer time!
Spray and go!
Product tester from Oakland, Ca
Love the texture. Great for beachy looks or a little hold for my styled curls
Was very sticky
Omi from Jamesport New York
I used it after a wash
Volume for days!!
Susan from Nashville, TN
This gives my hair lift and texture like no other product. It's expensive but worth every penny.
Everything I wanted, and nothing I didn't
Kari S. from Venice, Florida
It took a few tries to get the full benefit out of this product. There were so many cautions about a little going a long way that I used it too sparingly, and got dismal results looking more tangled than beach waves. Today I used a heavier hand, concentrating on saturation of the roots with a quick spray to the lengths (ensuring the product reaches underneath and not just top layer). Slow blow dry on low heat with head upside down and scrunching by hand. Perfect! I don't have the patience to air dry the regular Surf Spray plus that doesn't give the volume I want and it's too crunchy when blown out. This gives soft waves with volume. Following with the Thickening Creme Contour gives a little polish to your do. I only wash my hair once a week because of damage from color. When the initial blow dry flattens I use a spray bottle of water to dampen hair before bed, divide hair into 7 or 8 sections, twist and pin, give a light spray of regular Surf Spray and sleep on it. When I "unwind" in the A.M. I have more regular waves that look like I used an iron. The spritz of the Surf Spray cuts through the dirtiness allowing me to stretch days between washes. Tonic Lotion Primer (which I love) also works to dampen and reactivate product before pinning and cuts through more of the build up than just using water with the Surf Spray. Great product once you get through the learning curve.
Best beach waves ever!
Samantha from Long Island, ny
I use this every day to get beachy waves with my flat iron. My waves hold all day, even during a busy shift at work and my hair stays soft, it doesn't get that gritty texture some salt sprays leave behind.
The best for fine hair!!
AmberR from Tennessee
I have the finest hair imaginable, and I have been searching for something to give it some texture and this is the best product I've ever used!
I'm a fan
Leti from Colorado
I have purchased this product many time. Use as directions say and it words great. Also do NOT over use. I think this is the problem a lot of people are having. Like was said, "A little goes a long way"
