Whilst purchasing Bumble & Bumble Surf Spray I stumbled across the Extra strength holding spray and thought I would try it. I like to have my hair curly and whilst I like them to fall quite loose during the day I prefer a tighter curl for a going out look, and most hairsprays fall flat (hehe look at me with a pun) at holding my curls.
It has taken me a few practices to master how to apply this product, the first time i squirted and it came out in a jet and left a big crunchy patch in my hair. Now i hold it further away and it seems to settle as a mist, or I spray into my hands and scrunch into my hair once styled. It definately has super strength, and I wouldnt reccommend this for anyone who likes a flexible natural hold. It definately does the job of holding curls but leaves your hair feeling slightly crispy. Less is definately more with this product.
I paid approx £16 for the 200ml which so far has lasted and lasted, I could probably get the same hold from a cheaper brand but I am an addict to names!!!
Bumble and Bumble is available at leading salons but I bought mine online, it might be best to shop around for the best price.
Its described as :
Extra Strength Holding Spray , the most potent to date, is a lacquer guaranteed to hold flips, dips, swirls and curls all day long. Use it as a last step when hair is dry and styled for updos, high-flying styles and modern volume. Polymers give hold, structure and control. Pro-vitamin B5 adds moisture, triethyl citrate provides flexibilty and flake resistance.
Bumble and Bumble is a very expensive range that is on the market and i am lucky enough to have a sister that is a hairdresser so i get to try the products without having to spend a fortune on them, which is great.
Bumble and Bumble Extra Strength Holding Spray is a great super strong hairspray and it will keep your hair in place no matter what the weather, whilst still giving it flexability. Extra strength Holding Spray is a great product and will hold your hair if its curls or flicking out that you want.
For the best results use it as a last item that you use on your hair when hair is dry and styled and just needs to be sprayed with the holding spray to keep it exactly where you want it. Hold about 20cm away from your hair and for extra volume add to your roots.
This is a great product with a great scent to it, this holding spray seems to have great hold, unlike some i have tried this seems to last a lot longer and does not lose it hold even though it does not set it and still allows flexability in your hair. Also a little of this product goes a long way, with some i have had to use a lot of the product to get the desired hold.
Look around online you can find some great deals on the bumble and bumble range which make them a great deal cheaper than in the Salons.
The ultimate finisher guaranteed to hold flips, dips, swirls and curls. To be used as a last step to finish and hold when hair is dry and styled. To Use: Hold about 10 inches away from hair and spritz in fluid, even strokes apply an extra spritz or two at the roots for lift.
