Let me start by saying that I have naturally curly (but fine) hair. So my hair — without product — is fluffy; the curls aren’t defined. I’ve had luck with curl-promoting sprays in the past, namely John Frieda’s Spiral Style and ghd’s Sea Spray for Matte Waves.
Bumble and Bumble’s spray has a pleasant cucumber-watermelon scent. The sprayer is easy to hold and works well (perfect amount/atomization of product). It works best on completely dry hair (not damp, not wet).
I usually wash my hair every second or third day, and I first tried this product as a day-one, post-wash, “curl establishing” product. I felt like I had to use a lot of product, and it still only produced narrow-diameter, stretched out curls. My hair was not crunchy at ALL, but the hold wasn’t strong enough to give me the volume and root lift that I like.
I then tried this as a “second-day refresher” (washed my hair as usual, used John Frieda Spiral Style on day one to establish the style, then used this product on day two to revitalize my curls), and it worked much better in this capacity. But I don’t know if I want to pay $23 for a second-day styling product.
