Bumble and Bumble Thickening Dryspun Finish
Bumble and Bumble's Thickening Dryspun Finish Spray caused a lot of excitement when it was released last September. I finally took the plunge and bought myself a can with a Boots voucher I got for my birthday in January - I had to see what all the fuss was about! It promises to add fullness and texture to hair, which is pretty much exactly what I want my hair products to do. My hair is quite thick but the length can weigh it down a little so I try to use volumising products that lift my roots and add a bit of body and separation to freshly washed hair.
Now, this spray isn't cheap, but I've almost finished my first can and I've already bought a second so it's definitely working for me. I'd describe the product as a cross between dry shampoo, hairspray and volumising dust, without any stickiness, crispiness or buildup. I apply it by lifting sections of my blow dried hair mainly at the root area around my crown, and where ever my hair looks flat and in need of a boost! I then ruffle it through with my fingers to give my hair a tousled look. You can also spray it through the lengths of the hair to create a bed-head style. I tend to wash my hair daily as I hate the feeling of unwashed hair - I find that this product adds a bit of grit to my soft, just washed hair, leaving it so much easier to style and handle. I love that it is totally invisible, so I don't have to spend ages massaging my hair to disguise the white powder that dry shampoo leaves behind!
The product smells just like the Bumble and Bumble Thickening Shampoo and Conditioner, really fresh and clean. I did find that if I used too much of this product it made my hair feel a little dry, but that was solved by brushing it out. I now just use a few spritzes where I need it instead of going over the top. A 150ml can has lasted me about two months of every day use, and there is still about a third left. I am so happy that I bought this product, although a small part of me wants to try the Oribe Dry Texturising Spray... maybe when I win the lottery!
Bumble and Bumble Thickening Dryspun Finish is £21.50 for 150ml and is available from Bumble and Bumble, Look Fantastic, Escentual, John Lewis, Selfridges, Boots and Space NK.
