Lemondrop Tests: Do Bumpits make my hair look convincingly bigger?
Like we said before, big hair lasts forever. However, how much hair spray or gel do you really want to go through to get that big bouffant?
Welcome, Bumpits -- crescent-shaped plastic inserts that promise to bring your hair "from flat to fabulous in seconds." It's easier than fiddling with bobby pins, and probably more environmentally friendly than spraying all that aerosol. Looks simple enough, right?
Bumpits come in three sizes, small, medium and large (for the maximum lift). I decided to go with the basic medium-size insert and skimmed through the style guide. With mini-teasing comb (included in the set) in one hand, Bumpit in the other and some help from a friend, I attempted to give my locks some volume.
Even with a Bumpit, you'll still need to use some hairspray to keep the piece in place. That said, Bumpits do deliver. These hair accessories volume-ize your mane faster than going through the hassle of using a hair dryer and round brush or a set of rollers. They are also really comfortable and don't fall out. Just be sure to keep your hands out of your hair, or they'll start to peek through your coif.
So if you're all about the big hair, need a quick fix-up do or are just a big fan of "Hairspray," Bumpits may be just the hair miracle for you. Price: $19.95 plus shipping and handling Rating: 5 out of 5 ShamWows
