I really wanted to find a dupe for this Bumble and Bumble primer! I like it. It made my hair smooth for blow drying but that’s about it. It’s labeled as a heat protectant and I really don’t find it to be that protecting. I have a lot of breakage going on RN. (thank you blonde hair and heat) The only thing I have to go off of is I went blonde in December and I started using this primer in December. From December to now I have had a lot of breakage so whatever I was using wasn’t really working for me. I understand I’m hard on my hair but I rely on good products to help keep it strong! The Bumble and Bumble spray is $28 and while I like it, I didn’t want to repurchase something that obviously wasn’t helping my hair in the way that it was said too.
I saw this Verb Leave in Mist at Sephora! I’ve had really good luck with every Verb product I’ve tried and after reading the description of the product it sounded like it could be a good replacement for the Bumble and Bumble primer. The Verb leave in mist claims to be a leave in spray that de-frizzes, detangles, conditions and protects from heat. The Bumble and Bumble spray similarly is said to do the same thing!
I’ve been using the Verb Leave in mist for about 3 weeks now and it does a tremendous job of de-frizzing hair! I can blow dry my hair w/ no brush and will have 0 fly aways. When I use a round brush my hair is super sleek and smooth. I can air dry my hair with no frizz and as someone who has finer and damaged hair… no frizz is honestly a miracle. I did not experience that with the Bumble and Bumble primer!
OVERALL, The product is very similar to the Bumble and Bumble spray. The Verb mist is thicker but I add a little water to it and that gives it a similar consistency to the Bumble & Bumble primer! The Verb spray is 8 oz for $14 while the Bumble and Bumble is 8.5 oz and $28. The Verb spray is way better price wise and it does more for my hair then the Bumble and Bumble primer did.
I lovvveeeee finding good dupes for products I use all the time. It’s even better when the dupe you find is cheaper and better than the original product! I’m super happy with this Leave in mist, I’ve gotten my mom hooked on it too and I highly recommend it if you’re looking for a good leave in conditioner/ spray / de-frizz / heat protectant! You get a lot out of this product and it is 100% worth it!
