I have medium/thick wavy, frizzy, long hair. As a student, I'm constantly on the go and don't have as much time or patience for hairstyling anymore. I'm trying to rehab my damaged hair, so air drying is best, but I end up with so much frizz. I love Surf Spray because I can spritz it on, and it defines my waves/shape, gives a cool matte hold/finish, and even tones down some of the frizz! And I'm able to avoid any heat styling and still achieve a look. I've noticed that it has a more measurable effect on shorter styles. When I first bought it, I had hair just past my shoulders, and it reallyyy brought out the waves, the layers, and added some beachy volume. Now my hair has grown much longer and heavier, so the effect is a little less, but still very nice nonetheless. This is great for creating cool, edgy updos as well, as the spray will give a good texture to work with, but will also help hold the style in place for a long time.
Don't spray too much in one area, you can always go back and add more. I like to spray it on damp hair, because then even if I did over-apply on one section, air drying will help soften the use of too much product. I've also noticed that you can bring out more of your hair's shape when you spray it on damp hair versus dry hair. I avoid putting too much on the root area, unless I want one spritz to try to encourage a lot of volume that day.
The only, smallest critique I have of this product is that the span of the spray is a bit wide, which took some getting use to, as the first time I aimed it at my hair, I ended up spraying half on my face because the nozzle covers such a large area. Over time you'll get used to it and learn how far away and where to hold your hand so you can direct the spritz right where you need it!
I tried this on my friend with straight hair, and it encouraged a little waving, but overall gave her a messy/sexy texturized look, which was good because she has extremely fine hair, though I would not expect this product to create waves in straight hair if you have absolutely none.
Overall incredible product! (And cool bottle design on top of everything else.)
This does indeed give you beachy hair. Not a fan of the gritty, dirty feeling. I have to use a lot to hold a style.
I tried surf spray for a while but now only use (un)dressing creme, which is more effective and not at all hairspray-crunchy.

smells great perfect for natural waves without any heat styling

I have medium/fine, slightly wavy hair that I'm always trying to volumize. I bought this when my hair was long, and it kinda ended up in this sloppy, tangled mess. I cut my hair to collarbone length with a little bit of texture and decided to try it again. Definitely noticed a difference - it gave me the fluffy, slightly dishelved hair I was trying for. Glad I didn't throw it out before then! It does make your hair feel a little stiff, but not enough to be obvious or bother me.

Several friends have raved about Bumble and Bumble products for years. I finally took the leap to try a few things. This was by the worst thing I got. It made my hair dry, sticky and tangled. The first time I used it I gave it the benefit of the doubt because I slept on it. I tried to again today on damp hair and let it air dry. I couldn't even leave my hair down it was so gross. I took it down once I got home from work and it looked like my hair hadn't been washed in a week. I have naturally wavy hair that holds curl well and am still on the search for a great leave in spray to give me beach waves.

I really wanted to love this, but it leaves my hair so dried out and sticky...even if I just use a little bit. I love most B & B products; just not this one.
La Donna from Austin, TX
I love this but the bottle is so small for the price. Also, sometimes I have to use a lot. I have oily hair that's fine but I have a lot hair. My hair is naturally straight/slightly wavy. I use it when I get it if the shower, quick towel dry and spritz and scrunch. Sometimes I have to use more bc where I live is very humid.
Ashley from Ohio
I prefer using this on air dried air, you only need a small amount. I spray at roots and ends and scrunch and fluff my hair and it gives me a lot of volume and brings out the natural wave in my hair. I only noticed a pleasant light scent. It is expensive for the amount but it works very well.
Shirley from Seattle
Adds volume and waves. Fresh fragrance.
After washing my hair, I towel dry and then spritz with the Surf Spray for a wavy ready to go summer beach style! Love it!
Stef S from FL
Have very straight hair. I use this primarily after my hair is dry. I spray a little in my hand and spread it underneath (flip hair over), along crown, and near part. Later I use the the Bumble texture for additional lift. For some reason whenever I try products other than bumble I don't like them; I always go back to bumble. I will say I have to be careful bc if I use too much makes my hair oily.

This is the best product for my hair.
I have shorter hair, and their surf line is the best!

left my hair very dry and sticky

So for starters I LOVE this stuff. This is my 5th bottle, I love how big it makes my waves and curls kick up! It even brought my limp hair from a keratin pretty close to my natural big wave it was before the treatment. However, this will leave a slight dryness and crunchy feeling. It won't look crunchy, but it'll just feel a bit dry. To me it's totally still worth it, but not everyone may enjoy that! I find it gives it more of a hole so that I can keep the waves for a few days without them dropping on me.

I have very little towards my hair still I managed to have a surfer look with this product. I tried many sprays but this is really super. susthesurfer loves this product.

Love this hair product. It gives me great beach curls year round.
Marissam from Wisconsin
This is a good salt spray and really enhances my waves/curls but it definitely made my hair feel sticky and every time I touched my hair I had residue on my hand. It also kind of weighed down my hair. I ended up tying my hair back. If this was cheaper I would be more ok with the results.
Willow Pond from Texas
After the product I was using changed their formula I searched for years and nothing was the same. The girl at Ulta convinced me to try it and I love it. I have some natural wave and get perms. This product gives my hair that tosseled edgy look. I love it!
Karen from Allentown, PA

Emily from Virginia
This product was in my basket for months and I was so excited to give it a try. It adds weight to my hair with no texture. Very disappointed
Nuria from Oregon
Average product. Nothing special. I will return it.
gh.pena from ca
uh I wish I could add photos the bottle has residue everywhere like someone used it. And the label is yellow. Totally would return if I could.
HKO from MA
I've tried similar products before, so I was a little hesitant, but I purchased the shampoo/conditioner for this and this as a follow up and my hair is perfectly "beachy" but soft and manageable! No frizz or crunch at all. Won't be disappointed!
FonzVerlander from An airplane
Got this spray as the first product I ordered from Bumble and bumble. I was looking for something to add a little "mess" to my hair, and this spray works terrifically. Great for adding some texture without looking like I have a lot of product in my hair. Would definitely recommend!
Kate from Knoxville Tn
Nice product. Light waves and texture. If you want something that gives you a strong salty beachy feel maybe try something else.
mags from Tennessee
Me and my mom got this to try and we were very disappointed to find out that it dried out our hair and it smells like very strong hair spray and it's not a good scent and overall we were not all that thrilled with this product the only upside is that it does wave your hair instantly so if you are okay with your hair being dry but wavy go for it
Terry2019 from Gastonia NC
I love this spray! It gently adds a little volume while styling to create beachy style waves. Can be used with or without styling products/tools. Doesn't get "cakey" like hairspray...perfect for an untamed look!!
Allie from Boston, MA
I read a lot of the reviews on this product before purchasing and decided to give it a try. It's is pricey for the size but it works and I don't use much. I have some natural wave to my hair somewhat 1/2 wavy 1/2 straight which looks horrible if air dried. I've tried tons of beach sprays to try to bring out the waves none worked well or I've had to use a ton of product to get a result until now. I have fairly long hair, about to the middle of my back, cut in long layers. I lightly spray this all over, scrunch and let air dry. Amazingly, I get these great waves and gotten many compliments since I started using it. No hair dryer or curling iron needed which is a plus in the summer. I saw some reviewers who said it made their hair crunchy and dry. This did not happen for me. I can see it happening though if you use too much. I only wash my hair every two to three days on average. I'll use this to revive the wave in spots on days I don't wash it. By day 3 I have a lot of texture and it does feel a little dryer than normal but once I wash it out my hair is fine. Definitely thing to complain about. If you're hesitant, give it a try, you can return it if it doesn't work for you.
