I haven't spotted many freebies with August's magazine offerings, but when I heard that with Elle magazine you received a 50ml bottle of Bumble & Bumble's Thickening Hairspray I knew this was the perfect opportunity to give the brand a go. Elle doesn't come cheap at a pricey £4.00, but if you're eager to try Bumble & Bumble I'd recommend buying.
The hairspray itself works different to others I've tried in that you apply it to wet hair before blowdrying. It's a thickening hairspray, and it does just that. I don't have fine hair at all but like to add a bit of volume to the roots, and this allows me to do that without having to backcomb. Only a couple of sprays is needed, too much and I think it adds a bit of greasiness to the hair.
Even though I'm not really one for hair products I think I might actually buy the full size when I run out, it's great for giving hair a bit of life without the overpowering scent or stiffness that a regular hairspray does!
