Bumble and bumble Thickening Dry Spun Finish | Review

High school: a dynamic of mean girls, jocks, artsy fellows, and stress. Similarly, it's also the time when girls start wearing makeup. I smudged liner, coated mascara, and tapped blush onto my complexion, hoping that it wouldn't look over the top, yet I aspired that I'd fit in with the rest. Well, truth be told, no matter if I brushed mascara from an empty tube or barely hit the brush to the pan, I still felt like it was too much. So, what did I do? I'd wet my hands and smear all over my face, ridding of all the tedious turmoil I just went through. Once it was all gone, that's when I felt comfortable.

Flash forward a few years and I've become far more complacent with mascara wearing and complexion enhancing. Yet, the one area that I still want to appear untouched is my hair. Perhaps it's the fact that I'm after the Parisian aesthetic, where slept in locks are as beautiful as things can get, but my no heat prerogative means I keep my routine to a minimum. Nevertheless, my genes aren't as French as I would hope and my thin, more-than-straight locks don't mend as seamlessly with my hoped presence as I would desire.

So I threw all caution to the wind and searched for the most thickening and volumizing product I could seek; and I think I've found it: the Bumble and bumble Thickening Dry Spun Finish*.

I'll admit, it's taken me quite a while to get to grips with this one. But it's ability to make my hair look thicker than I could ever imagine has granted it the daily reach from Lillian's hand.
The silk powder, wheat protein, and sunflower extract constituents sound promising for a spray that will whip your follicles into an airy silhouette. Yet, there's more that makes this concoction promising.

First, and most importantly, it's translucent. I apologize to dry shampoo manufacturers, but I don't think you understand that I would like to keep my young, brunette hair as grey-free for as long as possible, thank you. Secondly, this stuff smells nice, but not too overpowering at all--so you won't have to worry about clashing your perfume. Last, it works--and chicly at that. You won't get that voluminous perm hair, but ridiculously thicker, natural looking hair. And it also doesn't hurt that your natural shine (not oil) will still stand, so you'll be looking as radiant as usual.

My only grumble? The volume doesn't seem to last all day--maybe only two to three hours, but, I don't care, because if I get get my natural hair looking good for one minute, that's a feat in itself.
When I'm ready to inject some thickness, I just brush my hair first (you could definitely do it without brushing, but I find it looks slightly too messy that way), then lift up pieces and spray.

Boom--Parisian hair; it looks like I'm one step closer to my goal.


  1. This was on the top of my hair wishlist but then I went all natural & organic. On the hunt for something similar!

  4. This looks great, i've had my eye on the oribe version but i might go for this instead it's a lot easier for me to get :) xx


  5. I hate dry shampoos that leave white / grey marks, it's great to hear that this Bumble and bumble thickening spray is translucent x

  8. This is really interesting. I hate when dry shampoos make your hair look grey too, it's the worst thing! Also I need a bit of volume in my flat hair life, even if only for a few hours.

  9. Always. Who doesn't want more volume? xo

  10. Ugh; I totally wish I could help you. Maybe try both--just buy one at a time and when you use the first one up, try the other. xo

  11. And it's also much easier on the wallet. (; x

  12. N'awww; now you're making me blush. I'm so flattered, and, coincidentally, I discovered your blog recently via Ellie and it's lovely. (: x

  13. Wow; you're a brave female. Have you seen the Jason volume range (I think it has something along the title of 'Thin to Thick')? x

  14. aww thank you too! that moment when you discover a new blog that you love ;)
