I have been going nuts with dry shampoo for the last few years and decided the other day that I should really do a review on all the different ones I've tried. I tried to make these reviews nice and simple to read through for you all, so enjoy!
Cost: $13.95 4.6oz
-Smells great! I loved the smell of the lime, grapefruit, and lemon which helped to open up my senses in the morning.
-A little of the product goes a long way. Since this dry shampoo is a powder and not a spray, I felt it was easier to spread throughout my hair.
-No chalky feel to your hair. This dry shampoo left my hair feeling very soft, almost like I actually washed my hair fully. There was no chalky feel to my hair, so I really liked that.
-The cost. To me, $13 is a lot to spend on such a small bottle. I got my bottle for Christmas so I didn't use my money, but it might take me a while to repurchase this one just because of the price.
-It take a bit more time to apply. I found that this product works best if it's left in for about 5 minutes before rubbing in so for some who are in a hurry, this may not be the best choice.
This was the very first dry shampoo I had ever use and I used it for a good 3 years after that. It was my favorite for the longest time. I used it almost every day in the summer when I worked early mornings and didn't want to take the time to wash my hair fully.
Cost: $4.74 (at most drugstores) 7 oz
-The spray nozzle on this bottle is great. It sprays the product evenly on my hair.
-No smell. Sometime dry shampoos have funny smells, but this one was odorless.
-Lasts forever. I could use one bottle for a good 4 months before I had to replace it and that was using it almost everyday. So it's cheap and lasts a long time.
-White application. It takes a bit of rubbing in and dispersing the product into your hair in order to get rid of the white powder, exspecially if you
-Chalky feel. After applying and rubbing in, my hair was left feeling chalky. I didn't mind to much, because I always wore my hair up in a braid and ponytail for work so it didn't bother me. The feel may bother some if you leave your hair down.
Cost: $4.97 (at most drugstores) 3.4 oz
-Smells great. This one has a very nice citrus smell to it. It was a favorite of mine to use in the morning for a quick wake me up and your hair was left smelling like oranges all day long.
-Doubles as a volumenizer. It definitely creates a nice body after using. I have very limp straight hair and when I applied the shampoo straight to my roots it really helped to lift my hair up a little.
-Doesn't last. This 3.4oz bottle felt like it only lasted me a good 5-6 uses, it was pretty much gone within 2 weeks. I used it normally like any other dry shampoo and it felt to me like the product just vanished. I probably won't repurchase this brand of dry shampoo.
Herbal Essences Naked
Cost: $4.97 (at most drugstores) 5 oz
-No smell. This dry shampoo had just a nice clean scent to it, nothing overpowering.
-Free of nasty crap. This formula from Herbal Essence is a newer one I believe and it doesn't have any harmful parabens or dyes in it that some people really don't care for.
-Sprays very evenly. I loved the spray nozzle on this one. It sprayed very evenly throughout my hair and I never had any problems with the nozzle getting stuck or clogged from product.
-Leaking problems. I did not have fun with this bottle. I used it once and packed it to go see Chris for the weekend. When I unpacked it, the bottle had exploded all over my bag, well more like leaked everywhere, but the whole bottle was pretty much gone after that. This may have been just a issue with this one bottle, but it still really pisses me off.
Herbal Essences Body Envy
Cost: $4.97 (at most drugstores) 5 oz
-Smells great. This one was another citrus scent of orange. I'm currently using it and I can't get enough of it. I love the fact that my hair smells like an orange orchard all day long.
-Spray nicely and even.
-No chalky feel to your hair. This dry shampoo just sucks the oil right up and makes it feel like you just washed your hair. I didn't have any issues with my hair feeling thick of product or chalky.
-Haven't found any yet! I love it!
I hope you guys enjoyed this post and I hope it helps you narrow down your choice for a good dry shampoo. I have quickly become a dry shampoo freak, I absolutely love and cherish it. Some days it is just too much to ask to get me to shower in the morning and I love having a bottle on hand. It also helps when I'm in a hurry. I'll shower but I'll just skip washing my hair and use dry shampoo.
Thanks for stopping by today!
