Clean and un-oily hair in an instant with this powder!
On a random trip to Sephora, I picked up this travel sized dry shampoo. Since I have a pretty oily scalp, I can't really go without washing my hair everyday. If I don't for one day, my head becomes an oily mess and all I can do is put a hat on. The next morning, I sprinkled the dry shampoo in my hair and massaged it in throughly. I waited a few minutes to let the powder settle in, finished putting on my makeup, and brushed my hair out. I noticed a few spots that were still oily so I rubbed in a bit more of powder and let it settle. I LOVED the way my hair looked and felt when it was all done! My hair looked clean and refreshed! I was slightly worried about the white powder since my hair is black but after rubbing in the powder with my fingers into my hair and scalp, the powder disappeared. My hair is thin so I'm not sure how this would work for someone with dark thick hair. You probably want to try this at the store first before you purchase. Overall, I really am a big fan of this product since it delivered exactly what it said it would. Once I run out of this travel sized one, I will for sure purchase the full sized bottle. *** The photo is from today, having used the dry shampoo this morning!
Great colorless dry shampoo.
This product has saved me in my morning rush so many times. It's the only dry shampoo I've tried, but I really don't think that I need to try any others because I can't see how it could get better than this.
I tend to have a very oily scalp, and that combined with my fine baby thin hair can mean things tend to get ugly really fast. In an ideal world of no consequences I would wash my hair 2x a day, but in reality my extra long hair requires me to hold off on the shampoo for days at a time. This is where this product saves me.
Usually, the 2nd day is put-my-hair-in-a-bun day, but with this powder, I can leave it down without feeling self conscious. It soaks up all the oil and deodorizes with a yummy lemon verbena scent (love this because nobody really wants their hair to smell like baby powder, right?). The application is easy too, I just section through my hair in 2 inch slices and shake some powder on to my roots. I do this all throughout my hair, then rub my fingers through and massage the powder in. I finish my brushing and doing a light blowdry to revive some volume into it as well.
My only complaint for this product would be the slight powdery residue it leaves. It's invisible, but if I scratch my head with my fingers I'll see some of the powder gunk under my nail. Understandable though, because where else is that powder going to go, right?
Am I not using it correctly :(
I too got the travel sized bottle at Sephora to test out. I know it isn't good to wash hair everyday because it strips the hair of its natural oils but I just can't help it my roots especially those in the front near my face just seem to get oily the next day. I really do like the smell of this, and I really wanted it too work but it just did not work for me.
