(Not Such) Great Hair In A Bottle

My name is Natalie and I am addicted to Bumble & Bumble.

I've been having some serious hair woes lately. Largely due to me being so indecisive when it comes to getting it cut and restyled - meaning it's left for months on end without being touched. It's shameful. I've been switching up the products that I use a lot lately and I don't seem to be able to achieve the same level of body and volume as I used to (again, probably due to it being so long and damaged. You'd think I'd learn my lesson). I actually wasn't in the market for anything new, but a recent hunt around Boots led me to find a few bottles of Bumble & Bumble's Dryspun Finish down from £21.50 to a fiver in the clearance. A fiver. It's a product that I've wanted to try for a while now, being a fan of the bedhead look, but I just couldn't justify paying full price when I really didn't know whether it would work for me or not. I know that it's often compared to the Charles Worthington Dry Texturising Spray and the Oribe Texturising Spray (the price of which makes my eyes water) but I was never convinced that such thing as a one-product-wonder for weightless volume and texture even existed.

My thoughts? I like it. But it's more of an 'I'm glad I paid a fiver for this' than a 'willing to repurchase at the full price' kind of like. I adore Bumble & Bumble largely because I find their products to do exactly what they say on the tin and provide instant results, but I'm not entirely sure what this product does. It may just be due to a dissatisfaction towards my hair in general at the moment, but I feel as though I pick this product up for the (kind of amazing) scent more than anything - definitely not the idea. It does add some volume when sprayed directly into the roots, but I'd say it's more of a quick fix and has a tendency to leave my hair feeling pretty rotten a few hours later. It also adds fullness in a sort of 'puffy' kind of way, meaning that it'll probably work best for those with locks slightly less frizzy than mine.
