Most Helpful Positive Review Love this shampoo & conditioner
I love this surf's up line. My hair is poker straight and heavy on top and the lower half of my hair has a wave. My hair can be difficult to work with. This product is great - gives me some texture and even some volume on the top. Smells great too. My daughter even tried to steal it when she was here for her last visit home. She loved it was well and has totally different hair - very curly all over but a bit thinner.
The only negative about this is not the product but the packaging -- I wish they would make this product in bigger bottles -- at least 16 oz or better yet, super sized - and using bottles with plastic that doesn't "crumble" in like an accordion and stay that way.
Most Helpful Critical Review Foam Wash Fail
I am so bummed this product did not live up to my expectations. I used it for the first time this morning only to find after styling that it made my hair fall lifeless and flat. My hair feels heavy after using this which is not the effect I want. Really disappointing considering all the positive reviews I read. I think I will try the thickening shampoo instead. Smells great, but I would agree that it doesn't produce enough lather either. Sad :(
Reviewed by 98 customers Great for people with a coconut allergy
Em from Southern California
If you're like me and are allergic to coconut, you know how many products contain ingredients that are derived from it. This has been the best I have found so far with no derivatives of coconut that does not strip my hair of it's natural oils, while leaving it feeling light and clean.
I Forgot How Much I Love This!
BeautyHaul from Pennsylvania
So I used this for years and loved it, and then decided I was going to try some other things, because you know how sometimes you think the grass can be greener....
I remembered this week how much I used to love this, and bought it again. OMG - why did I ever stop using it?! I have tons of very fine, ultra straight hair. I don't have much volume at all because it's so heavy and straight. This is the best shampoo for giving my hair lots of thickness. I like to do loose curls with a curling iron and I swear this shampoo primes it for curling - it holds the curl SO much better after using it. I love this shampoo and am never going to stray from it again!

I cannot get enough of the surf shampoo/conditioner combo. I have long, extremely straight, thin, lifeless hair (naturally). I've bought dozens of products to try and put some texture and life into my hair and nothing ever worked. Until these! I swear, they have changed my hair game. I use the shampoo and conditioner and follow up with Bb grooming creme and the don't blow it hair stylers. I scrunch and twist and let air dry. OH MY GOD. My hair has tons of volume, life, and texture. It evens brings out some natural wave, or maybe it's creating it, unsure really. But as someone who has always dreamed of having little waves and texture in my hair, it's amazing. If I go one shower without using these, my hair is back to being thin and lifeless. It's wild. It really does work for me. I used to be a daily washer, too, and now I can go a few days between washings. Plus, the second day hair with this is beautiful and full of body and texture. I can't necessarily afford to keep using this but it works so well and is such a big confidence boost, I don't see myself going without it unless I find a cheaper competitor. I doubt I'll find anything that works better, tbh. My only "issue" is that it's kinda harder to brush my hair out after showering than it was with other shampoo/conditioners. It just be whatever is end there that is adding all of the texture to my hair. It doesn't bother me much, and is a tiny price to pay for such rockin hair. Just get a good detangling spray if you lack the patience. It really doesn't bother me much at all. Just try it out!
It's like being at the beach
Catmom from Knoxville,TN
I was blown away by the way this smelled. It's like being at the beach. I honestly use this as a stress reliever. As soon as I open the bottle the smell hits you. Then there is this rich incredible lather that rinses away clean. It's like your own beach in your shower. That leaves your hair wavy and wonderful.
LOVE Surf line!
Margsrd from Boston, MA
I have shorter hair and their surf line is the best!
Only wish buy in large sized bottles hair so soft!
Meldist from Edmonds, WA
I used to think claims of shampoo making hair softer was bogus and a marketing ploy. Im 41 yrs old and have tried a lot of shampoo in. My day. I bought a bottle of this on a whim i think to get me over a price point for free shipping or something and i love some of the Surf line styling products. I was completely blown away after a shower when after even using a blow dryer, my hair could only be described as feeling softer. Ive now used with different conditioners and things. Same result.
Only wish we would buy in those uber large bottles like thickening line!
marissam from chicago
I love this shampoo for adding volume and body to my wavy hair. I've tried so many volumizing shampoos and this might be the only one that actually did anything. And I can go multiple days without washing after this. Also smells nice and light. Only downside is I feel like I have to use a lot because it seems to work better if I lather and rinse twice...but I'm fine with that since the product works so well otherwise. I also don't like how the bottle crumples, but all the bumble shampoos seem to do that. I would definitely like it if this was offered in a liter size eventually!
LJ from Nebraska
Great shampoo. Leaves my hair fuller yet softer!
My favorite shampoo. Leaves my curls soft and wavy.

I love this shampoo and I use it with the creme rinse and surf spray for beachy waves.

Makes my hair soft yet full of body . Love this!
Love This Stuff!
MCR from Atlanta
I always feel my hair has more volume & body when I use Surf Shampoo. No fly-aways with Surf!
My go to shampoo!
Love It In Richmond Va. from Richmond Va.
This product paired with the surf spray plus a great texturized haircut really adds body and style to thick fine hair. It does not leave a residue on the hair and as a result, does not weigh the hair down. Love it!

Makes hair appear fuller
Fresh smell, fresh look, my go to shampoo
VTMamaTeacher from BTV
Love love love this shampoo! Great smell, makes a beach wavy luxury do.
adds subtle texture to fine hair
MaddieP from London/Los Angeles
Only shampoo that adds up texture without a rough or drying feeling, good for more scalp which is very sensitive and leaves hair clean enough for at least three days without another wash (used to be every day with old shampoos.)
horsesrule2006 from Portland, OR
I love this shampoo! My hair and scalp have felt very clean and residue free since I've started using it, but without stripping it. The description on the bottle is very accurate.
Love the fluff
untamed58 from Coastal So. Carolina
This shampoo cleans hair thoroughly and adds volume. However, as others have observed it does have a tendency to leave tangles. My solution, moisturizing conditioner. The Surf conditioner is really more of a cream rinse and not enough for my fine color treated hair.
did nothing special
kr from Idaho
this is a really nice shampoo. its smell is nice (not overpowering), it cleans my hair really well, I don't even have to use conditioner with it which is unheard of. but I bought it to give my hair more volume and define my wavy/sometimes curly hair... it did not. hair is soft and clean, but boring and it flattens out. disappointed because it didn't do as advertised, but still a nice shampoo!
Blaur3 from Louisiana
I was so excited to get the surf shampoo and conditioner in. The product smelled AMAZING and I thought it would do wonders for my hair. Unfortunately, I was wrong. My hair has never been more tangled when I finish washing it. I've also noticed I've been losing more and more hair after each washing. 5 Star for the scent, 1 Star for the product.
Fresh scented foam leaves my hair clean, shiny and bouncy.
Saori from Santa Cruz CA
Full lather, which I personally like. Deep cleans without stripping my naturally colored hair. I use a de-tangler afterwards (Prep Spray) in lieu of a creamy shampoo. Does not weight down my hair.
Love this from the scent to the great results!
alibeth from Salem, MA United States
I've always loved Bumble Bumble. Best quality products for the money. The Surf Foam line works best on my fine curly hair. I've tried nearly everything in the BB brand. Hair changes, products change a bit, and right now it's Surf for me! I do swim laps at a Y, so my hair needs help!
I have only used it once. So far, so good.
Zinnia from Charlottesville VA
I bought this based on another review. I have only used it once so far. I found it refreshing to use. It lathered well and cleaned my hair and scalp quite nicely. It did not leave my hair with any weird film or oily coating or weight. It did not cause my scalp to break out (yes, some shampoos do that). My hair felt great. I have been using the Redken volumizing shampoo for years, but they recently discontinued that formula and replaced it, and I am not as happy with the new formula. Bumble & Bumble is pretty expensive, so I have not tried it until now. So far, so good.
Gemini78 from Minnepolis, MN
Now that I've received my order I can see that the Surf collection is designed for men. It smells like the old Tommy HF cologne- horrible! It smells slightly ocean like, but with a rotten undertone. It adds no body or volume and it weighs my hair down & makes it sticky & straw-like and my hair isn't dry to begin with. I spent a small fortune on this line & I'm very disappointed. :(
Melly66 from Austin Texas
Perfect after a long hot day in the sun!
I would not recommend this at all. Smells great tho
Rosa from Charlotte NC
I would not recommend this product leaves hair dry and greasy
