First and foremost; Bumble and Bumble, please make this a permanent item. My hair is naturally curly and wavy and it's never looked the same twice. I straightened my hair every single day (sometimes twice a day) for over 20 years. Being both bipolar and major OCD, I couldn't live with my hair being so crazy all the time. I live in Alabama and it's very humid year round and my hair is always frizzy too! I have washed my hair at least once a day for my entire life. Last summer I was in a car accident that left me with a permanent neck and shoulder injury. I can barely lift my right arm for 2 minutes, so drying and straightening it are no longer an option. I work in the office at a steel plant, where I'm the only female employee with around 35 men. I'm the Safety, HR and Office Manager and I'm regularly out in the plant where it's always hot. I wash my hair twice a day now and I'm no good with hair so it's never styled. I started using Surf Styler about a month ago and it actually makes my hair look good naturally. I've tried dozens of brands curl products over the last year and nothing made a real difference until I gave in and bought these sort of pricey hair products. I have to add that with this brand, you totally get what you pay for x10 and in every single product.
I had heard great things about this product and decided to finally try it. It smells good, isn't crunchy, and is pretty weightless. However, it made my hair look unfinished. I'm assuming it's just my hair of course but I was really bummed when this stuff didn't make my hair do what it claims to do. I tried adjusting the amount of product I used, I've tried different techniques... nothing has worked so far. I was super excited for an easy, effortless, air-dried style but now I just look like someone who doesn't know how to do their hair.

Ive been purchasing this product since 2019. I live in Florida where its hot and himid. I use this 3 times each week. It is my go to product for wearing my natural waves, it keeps me looking polished while I wear my natural hair. I love it and have used over 25 brands of gel and this is the Holy Grail!!

My all time favorite product for fine curly hair. I apply a nickel sized amount on each half of my hair & scrunch.either use a hair dryer or air dry for the most perfect waves. Does not leave hair crunchy. Love that it also provides sun protection! Please don't ever stop making this Bumble & bumble.

On the plus side, if you're looking for a matte finish, medium hold, and texture, you might like this. It would be good for air-drying and also, maybe, for shorter styles. A little would go a long way. Smells nice.
My fine, wavy, and long hair felt crunchy, tacky, and dull with diminished bounce. Not a love match and not what I look for in a product.

Would not buy again, would love to return for something that holds my hair a little stronger
Tricia from Minnesota
Absolutely LOVE this product!! I have fine, wavy hair and this product gives me legit ringlets - more so than Don't Blow It which is another favorite of mine. Love that it has UV protection too for the summer months! 10/10 for me.
Kelsie from Seattle
I bought this because a B&B Instagram video showed someone putting in damp hair, twisting and letting air dry for beachy waves. It has not worked for me like that at all. It just leaves my hair feeling normal to stringy and crunchy, depending on how much I put in. It may work for other hair types, but not mine (straight and fine).

Smells good, leaves hair feeling clean & not crispy.

I use this when it's humid to stop my hair from going flat. Works better than a number of other products I've tried in the past. Redken used to make a salt spray product, now discontinued, this has been the best alternative I have found. I little expensive, but you don't need much product to do the job.

My son has unruly, coarse and curly hair. This product did a great job of taming it without weighing it down.

I really wanted to love this. It gave a nice wave definition to my hair but it was very drying and left a film. Unfortunately I'm returning.

Decided to try this as is it was n sale. Sooo glad I did.....After first use I couldn't believe how amazing this product is. Gives full volume without being sticky or dull. I sleep on it and can put more in the next day and no build up, just great results again..Love it so much that when I read it might be seasonal I bought 2 more !
I cannot be without this great new find! Best stuff ever.

This did nothing for my hair whatsoever. Stick with Don't Blow It

My hair is naturally frizzy and wavy without styling. Not the pretty curls that you get without styling. This plus the surf spray in gives me gorgeous beachy waves and curls. They also enhance my waves without being stiff and hard to brush out like past products I've used.
Brit from Texas
I wanted to like this product but it doesn't work. Honestly made my hair gross and greasy looking I didn't use much and it was horrible.
Cara from New York
I normally love B&B products but this one left me disappointed and confused. I saw all the reviews staying how great this product was for fine hair and decided to buy it. But I don't get it, I followed the directions to the T and this did nothing for me. It somehow managed to make my hair frizzy...and my hair is never frizzy.
Kristin from Texas
LOVE, LOVE, LOVE this leave in styler! In my opinion, it blows Don't Blow It out of the water. I typically wash my long, fine hair in the evenings and let it air dry or go to bed with it still damp, so it has a tendency to look stringy and sad the next day. Since using this product, it is not only softer, but feels full and has a nice subtle wave. If you are looking for effortless body and softness as a result of your air-dry, this is a great product. When I am wanting a little more grit and texture, I just add a little surf spray. Also, the smell is fantastic!

I have fine hair, and a lot of it!! I followed the suggestions and viola! It came out exactly like I wanted it to!! Most of the products I've tried either leave my hair crunchy and wet looking or just not good at all!! I also have the issue of the top layer of hair still looking stringy and dried. This product took care of every strand of hair. Definitely love it!!
nik from Honolulu
I absolutely LOVE this product! Straight up solved all my problems with not really knowing how to style my very thick wavy hair. I always would air dry because I don't really know how to use a blowdryer, and would wake up with frizzy and confused looking hair. This product is super easy to use and makes my hair bouncy, shiny, and super healthy looking. With damp hair out of the shower, I split my hair in half and put a small amount of product on either side, then leave in a braid for a couple hours and all done! I wake up with super luscious waves by doing the absolute minimum. Absolutely no stringiness, stickiness, heaviness, or tangling that I have experienced with other products. Love this x10000!
Jill from East Coast
I was disappointed with this one. Felt like regular old hair gel and didn't give my hair the same texture as other surf products. I prefer don't blow it; will stick with that. For surf texture will just keep using surf spray.
Leslie from Southern California
I bought this last summer and was so bummed to find it was seasonal. So excited it is back! Purchasing more now.
SJ from Denver, CO
I wanted to love this product. All the things it claims to do is exactly what I wanted, but alas, I don't feel like the product did much of anything. Sad day, I'll stick with my Blow Out Repair!
Sarah from New Orleans, LA
I love this! Please keep this as a permanent product.

This product has been an absolute game changer on days I let my hair air dry! My hair is naturally wavy but in a very inconsistent way. This gives my waves definition without crunchy, sticky residue and cuts down on the frizz. I love it so much that I bought a backup tube in fear that since it is a limited edition I will run out. B&B -- please add this to your lineup, it's amazing!!
