Just Landed: Bumble & Bumble City Swept

For as long as H.O has been running I’ve had a bit of a love affair with Bumble & Bumble products. I remember I even hunted down one particular salon in Brighton that stocked them well before my local Space NK or Boots as I was so desperate to get my hands on the Sunday shampoo. Last weekend their City Swept Finishing Spray* found it’s way into my life and I think it might just be my favourite post-wash product of theirs yet.

Although I love the DrySpun Finishing Spray, I find that my hair has quite a lot of texture to it anyway, so (depending on what I use to wash my hair) I don’t always need to use it. Despite this my hair is still in need of a little something after it’s first wash to give it a more “second day” feel. It can also look a little too matte straight after washing which is where the City Swept Finishing Spray fits perfectly into my routine. It gives a little hold and grit, accompanied by a slight sheen instead of a matte texture. This is perfect for days when my hair is doing its natural thang as things can tend to get a little fluffy if left to it’s own devices.

I’m also liking it on straight hair when I have seriously fluffy hair days, it gives it the texture and weight it would have at the end of the day, but without the faff and worry I usually experience in the morning. Not everyone has crazy hair like mine, so it’s not a product everyone will need in their stash, but it was a most welcome addition to mine. And the dark blue matte packaging? Nice work Bumble. Suzie approves…

P.S It’s out in March (so save your payday pennies)!

    Sounds wonderful. I have been testing the CW Bounce and texturising spray and I'm very happy with it, it's a great more budget friendly option to B&B and Oribe :o) Xx

    Definitely picking this up when I'm in the States next month! Sounds like exactly what I need. What did we do before Bumble and Bumble…

    This sounds gorgeous! I love the effect of salt sprays and what not, but not so much the matte appearance that comes with them; so, obviously, this sounds dreamy.

    Sounds like a great product. I haven't actually ever used anything from bumble and bumble but this will definitely be something that i will be considering purchasing.

    I totally understand what you mean about things going fluffy–I have wavyish hair but without any product, I get fluffy ends so this actually sounds like the perfect product for me. Thanks for the review Suzie!

    this sounds so good! I hate when I've just washed my hair and it's all soft and slippery, it always needs a bit more texture, this sounds like it'd be perfect x
