After picking up this months issue of Elle magazine after being lured in by the 50ml bottle of the Bumble and Bumble Thickening Hairspray that came with it, I thought I would share my thoughts on the cult classic.
Bumble and Bumble claim that this product will give you the 'ultimate blow dry' by being used on wet hair before blow drying, or it will give you a 'set-ready finish' after being used on already styled hair.
Intrigued by the words 'ultimate blow dry', shortly after washing my hair and using heat protectant, I spritzed this product throughout my hair, focusing mainly on the roots in the thought of it giving my hair volume. I then blow dried my hair as usual.
The finished result? My hair was left smooth with no frizz, which is what I love. I can't say that I noticed that much added volume or thickness to my hair which was a bit disappointing, but I was very happy with the sleek and smoothness of my hair.
I also found that it held the styling of my hair for a couple of days before it was ready to be washed again, which is really helpful as it means I don't have to go back in with straighteners the following day. I also felt that it didn't weigh my hair down, nor did it feel like there was a lot of product in it.
Overall I am very glad I tried this product. Although it didn't live up to my expectations in the volume and thickening category, it did pleasantly surprise me with it's smoothing abilities. My hair was left unfrizzy with no fly aways, and very manageable.
