This stuff is a godsend to anyone with an oily scalp, like me. To feel good about myself I need to wash my hair everyday, otherwise it hangs limp and greasy by noon the next day, and that's not something I allow unless I am certain I won't be leaving the house that day.
With this dry shampoo I can easily skip a wash and use this instead - I lift sections of hair in neat rows and spray liberally onto the roots, once I've done that I massage the roots gently and then leave the hair alone for a while (~10min should be enough but I usually give it more time) while I do my makeup/have something to eat/whatever else that needs to be done, so that the powders have a chance to absorb the unwelcome oils. Then I just brush out my hair well and I'm good to go, my hair looks really fresh for another whole day.
I'd like to mention that when sprayed, the dry shampoo seems to be giving a lot of white cast but this goes away! Although this version is supposed to be tinted, I did not notice any immediate color to it, and to me it was quite the same as the original non-tinted version. I have auburn hair and it did not subdue my hair color.
Another point, this dry shampoo does not dry my hair out. You know how some dry shampoos make your hair really matte, texturised, and give it too good a grip? This doesn't! Well, it does give a slightly better grip to your hair but not overly so. It doesn't take the shine away either, and the hair remains soft and it feels and looks healthy. Oh, and this stuff smells nice! The scent is subtle and nothing like the cheap dry shampoo/deodorant reek that screams "I've not had a proper shower today!".
I guess the price is above the normal everyday dry shampoo range, at least for me, but I find it's worth every penny. It really helps to find it on offer though. I'm quite interested in trying Klorane's nettle dry shampoo, it's said to be more suited to oily hair, although I'm perfectly content with this one.
In addition, this dry shampoo is not as abundant as, say, Batiste or your other drugstore brands that are stocked everywhere, so it might be more difficult for people who only shop at brick and mortar stores; however, it's quite easy to get if you don't mind shopping online.
- It WORKS - takes the surplus sebum away so you can live another day;
- No white cast (after you've let it work and brushed out);
- Smells nice;
- Not drying.
Would definitely recommend.
