I think you will think I am a little late to join the Dry Shampoo revolution…
Well I tried dry shampoo in the past a few times and I never really found a brand I liked, for various reasons it just never became part of my routine and after trying 2/3 different brands I gave up. I thought I was doomed to look like my hair had been dunked in a chip pan the day after I washed it forever.
I have unbelievably oily hair which I need to wash max every 2 days, every day would be ideal but I ain’t got time for that! Even a hairdressers blow dry never lasted me more than 1 day.
I recently decided to give it another go and bought one by let’s call it “Brand x” (I hate bad mouthing products) it was great the first few times I used it. Gave my hair a nice shot of volume. Every time I washed and styled my hair I would give it a quick spritz and go. The next day my hair would be oily but not as oily as usual, but the product didn’t perform on my already oily hair. It didn’t really bother me I was happy with the “Brand x” being used just as a volume product, to be honest I thought that was going to be as good as it gets for my hair… After a couple of uses I noticed that the powder seemed to have run out from the can and what ever I was spraying was leaving my hair feeling limp and sticky.
Sigh, it was good whilst it lasted.
I was ready to give up again and was telling my friend about my hair care problems whilst she was getting her nails done. She told me to try “Batiste” dry shampoo and gave me a travel sized sample.
What the hell, ONE more chance dry shampoo!
I think this product has just turned my whole haircare system upside down, I applied it after styling my hair the same way I did with the “Brand x” and the effect was good my hair had that added volume, but the real shock was the next morning. I applied a little to my hair and wow what a difference. So much so that I took a photo and sent it to my friend (please note I was still with make up half done in a bed robe – I was that impressed).
The aerosol can comes really nicely packaged, they have quite a range and the one I have has a “Tropical” scent and the can really brightens up my desk. Bright yellow and green the can is really fun. Since then I checked out a few they have in the pharmacy and I really like the look of the “Blush” which is very girlie and pink.
Well this is a little tricky to answer, as I don’t really know what’s inside it only that it’s been nearly 2 weeks and I only needed to wash my hair on day 5 and today which is day 4. I call that a freaking miracle.
Scents: Like I mentioned earlier mine is “Tropical” and its very beachy with coconut that kind of makes me wish I was somewhere far away. The scent isn’t over powering though, so you don’t have to worry about it clashing with your perfume.
I am looking forward to trying out some of the other scents like “cherry”
I apply it in two ways.
On clean hair: I spray my roots so that any excess oil is absorbed by it before making my hair look limp. It also gives a nice umpf to it.
On oily hair: I section my hair and spray between the sections, then a wait a min and give a quick massage to spread the product about. Then I can brush my hair.
I still pull up my hair since I wear my hair tied for work. But it actually looks ok whilst down. I would like to try to find the time to blowdry my hair whilst it’s dirty so I can see how it will look restyled. I feel much neater even if my hair is tied because it still keeps the volume. Normally my thin, fine, oily hair just lays flat across my scalp in a pony tail and the result is far from chic.
I love, no I ADORE this product. For me this is a miracle in a can, so much so I am actually going to share with you the half made up photo I sent to my friend… This is my day 2 hair…
Can you see the happiness on my face and the shock that my hair looks like it’s just been done? That’s DAY 2 ladies 🙂
I have decided to buy 2 one for my house and one for my bf’s and keep the sample for travelling. Best of all the price they are under 5e!
This product deserves a huge 5 out of 5.
Have you tried dry shampoo before? and what are your experiences?
Have you got any more tips for me?
