Bumble & Bumble Spraychalks

BUMBLE & BUMBLE SPRAY CHALKS review swatch photo

bumble & bumble spray chalks: £15*

Last week I popped along to a Bumble & Bumble event, to talk their new products and have a better look at their SprayChalks. I'd had them applied on me in store a few weeks prior so I was egarly awaiting their event to get a better look. Bumble & Bumble Spraychalks come in four pastel hues and are perfect for adding a bit of quirkiness to your hair. They are dry spray on hair colours, and remind me a bit of those spray on hair colours you can pick up from places like Clarie's Accessories as a kid, but just a little more refined. The pastel colour makes them look a little edgier and less in your face than their lower priced counterparts. Application is simple,  spray in and wash out. I felt they shed quite a lot and I ended up with a lot of residue left on my coat and top but no staining of the hair. While I sort of liked the effect they gave, it looked dry and... chalky. I know it's a hair chalk but it completely dried out my hair, in comparison to the L'Oreal Hair chalks which are the bomb. In all I feel they are massively overpriced for such a small can of hair product that is distinctly average. I can't see them lasting more than a few applications as they are so mini. I don't think they work as well as they could do, and after seeing these sprays in dark hair it just looks like a cake mess. Maybe if they were at a lower price point then I'd be more willing to recommend them, theres nothing wrong with them really. It's a fundamentally average product, looks cool but just way too overpriced.
What do you think of these?

  1. Shame you think they're too expensive! I've been seeing this all over the blogosphere lately and it has me intrigued, but you're right, I'm not sure I'm willing to splurge on something I wouldn't use all the time.

  11. Bit pricey for spraychalk, especially considering you said it sheds, i wouldn't be so disappointed if i spent this on spraychalk and it just ended up all of my clothes!
