Bumble And Bumble Surf Spray: Put To The Test

At some point, we've all purchased something whose results were, er, questionable, and didn't live up to our expectations or deliver the results we were so boldly promised. But no more! For the sake of you and your hard-earned money, The Huffington Post Canada Style team is putting the latest products to the test every week.

Testing: Bumble and Bumble Surf Spray

Testing Period: 24 hours

Tested By: Meredith Gillies, Associate Editor

Price: $29.50

What It Is: A salt-water based styling spray.

How To: Shower like you normally would -- day or night -- then towel dry your locks. Spray four to five squirts of the product into hair and scrunch strands. Let hair air dry to achieve the beachy look you desire (or use a diffuser to make the process go faster).

What We Thought: I tested this product before bed and it gave my hair a perfect I-just-stepped-out-of-the-ocean-look. It's perfect for summer. Unfortunately, the look didn't last until morning, which means every a.m. you'll have to redo the above process if you want to maintain a seaside hairstyle.

The Downfalls: Other than having no patience myself, the only downfall of this product is the hour or so you have to wait for your locks to dry -- the product gives your strands that beachy look as it dries.

Tips: Reapply the product each morning to achieve the best seaside-looking results.

Final Remarks: If you're okay with having messy, natural hair give this spray a try. It will make you feel like you went on a vacation -- even if you're only sitting at your desk.
