I have a love-hate relationship with dry shampoo. On one hand, I can’t resist a product that promises to make unwashed hair look refreshed and voluminous. But, for me, dry shampoo always seems to fall flat. As a curly-haired girl, I’m no stranger to long hours of heat styling, and I’m not one to let all that hard work go to waste. Dry shampoo does help preserve my blow out… but only for a few hours. By the end of the day, I’m usually left with powdery-feeling strands. I think it’s safe to say my previous dry shampoo experiences have left me feeling more gray than great.
After shelling out money on several ineffective dry shampoos, I was just about ready to throw in the towel. Then something life-changing happened. While writing an article about French pharmacy favorites, I came across Klorane Dry Shampoo. Infused with oat milk, this fine-powdered cult favorite promises to absorb undetectably into the scalp to rid strands of oil while moisturizing, soothing, and preserving the natural balance of hair. A dry shampoo that actually cleanses and moisturizes hair without any residue? I thought. I’m sold.
My blowouts typically flatten around day three, so that’s when I decided to put Klorane to the test. The bottle advises holding the can 10 inches away from your roots and leaving the product on your hair for 2 minutes before gently tousling or combing through. I was skeptical, but to my surprise, this short wait actually saved a considerable amount of styling time. I simply sprayed and relaxed while the product soaked into my hair, making it surprisingly clean.
With this dry shampoo, you don’t have to vigorously massage the powder into your strands. I could feel the product in my hair, but not in a gritty, heavy way—it gave my roots a bit of texture, but I could still run my fingers through.With a quick tousle, my hair looked revived and voluminous. In a total of three minutes, I was ready to go without any touch-ups.
I’ll never forget the reaction I received from friends and family, who complimented me more on my 3-day-old strands than on my freshly washed styles. Granted, my hair tends to be on the non-oily side, but my scalp felt clean for another two days after the initial application. I’m happy to say that with just a couple spritzes, Klorane Dry Shampoo with Oat Milk transforms my bed head hair into voluptuous, grease-free, and long-lasting strands. I guess you can say I finally found my dry shampoo soul mate.
