Bumble and Bumble Surf Shampoo & Conditioner

My hair dresser gave me a few of these sample sizes of Bumble & Bumble Surf Shampoo and Conditioner so I decided to give it a go since I have heard great things about it! It claims to give you "buoyant body and soft, seabreezy texture" through the use of sea botanicals. I've use the salt spray from this line and wasn't a big fan, especially for the price, but I hoped this would work well with my hair.

The first thing you will notice is the smell- a light, fresh scent that matches the product. It was not overpowering but left my shower with the hint scent of salty surf. After towel drying I applied my salt spray of choice, Toni & Guy casual salt spray, along with a sun protectant for my hair since I would be outside for most of the day. I used it a couple more times including without a salt spray, and with a leave in moisturizer to see how they effected the way my hair looked and felt. I also used it with a diffuser on my blow dryer instead of letting it air dry.

I did not like this product for the cost of an actual full bottle. I found that, despite the claims, it left my hair flat and lifeless even with the use of my usual volumizing styling product. My hair has a natural wave but was left straight and rather frizzy. Unlike their salt spray it was not excessively drying on my hair. If you can pick up sample sizes somewhere I highly suggest trying this product out since it is $24 each for the shampoo and conditioner and I can get better, more voluminous beachy hair with my usual products even without needing to back comb at the root. I'll keep using up my samples but I wont be buying a full bottle once it is used up.

Have you use the Bumble and Bumble surf line? What were your thoughts?
