I suffer with PCOS and as a result my hair falls out in handfuls on a daily basis, so any product that claims to give me some volume I always find appealing. So when my eldest daughter Cole gave me a can of the Bumble & Bumble Dryspun Finish hairspray to try I had high hopes, dryspun is a bit of a cult product in the blogging world and is loved by many so I was really excited to use it, I had heard it is quite useful as a dry shampoo too, something I use often.
What Bumble & Bumble Say About Dryspun
Bumble & bumble Thickening Dryspun Finish is a translucent dry spray creates instant fullness and texture to spin hair into an airy silhouette
Raw silk powders with light holding polymers adhere instantly for a softly interlaced texture to make hair look airy, weightless and effortlessly full – and keep it that way..
WHO: All hair types and textures, especially fine. Appropriate for use on color treated hair. WHEN: On dry hair, after heat-styling. HOW: Shake well, hold can 10 inches away from dry hair and spray in even strokes where you want lift and airy texture. Bb.Stylist tip: To refresh styles that have lost oomph to humidity (or gravity), spray liberally at roots, then ruffle with hands for instant fullness.
I applied the Dryspun by lifting my top layer of hair up and spraying it at my root, I then used my fingers to work the product into my hair and add lift. As I said I had really high hopes for Dryspun, it's a cult product and one that is loved by many, my eldest daughter Cole uses it when she curls her hair to give her volume and she really likes it but only uses it when curling her hair and as I said it is loved by many and I wanted to love it too, but unfortunately I didn't like it at all, it didn't do much in the way of adding any volume to my hair and my hair was left feeling absolutely awful and so full of product it was horrible. To be fair my hair is extremely thin but Dryspun is marketed for thin hair, I really don't like it at all and couldn't wait to wash my hair when I'd used it. I thought I was going to use it for the first time and be bowled over at how amazing it was and I wasn't at all, I was left feeling really disappointed with dirty feeling hair.
Overall Thoughts & Would I Re Purchase?
I think I can safely say I won't be re purchasing the Bumble & Bumble Dryspun Finish Hairspray, it really wasn't for me, I wanted to love it so much and wanted hair with lots of volume and that looked thicker but unfortunately this wasn't the case at all, my hair was as thin and limp as it always is but full of product and feeling horrible into the bargain. I would say not to let my review put you off too much as my eldest daughter does love it when she's curled her hair and lots of people do like it but if you're like me with super thin hair maybe this won't be for you either.
Have you tried Dryspun? Are you one of the people who love it or are you like me and just don't get on with it?
