Since I’ve still got some catching up to do for this year’s Blogmas: for Day 27 I’ve got a quick review for you of four Dry Shampoos that I’ve been trying out recently! I am a huge fan of dry shampoos because: A) It gives my hair some texture so it doesn’t fall straight down without the slightest bit of volume, B) I can skip washing my hair from time to time so it doesn’t get dry like a desert and C) it makes my hair smell soooo good!
These are the four dry shampoos that I’ve been testing out recently. The Briogeo and the Lush ones are loose powder and both the Amika and Batiste dry shampoos are a spray. I always thought that I preferred a spray, until I gave the Briogeo one a go…
I got a small bottle of the Amika Perk Up Dry Shampoo in my November 2017 Sephora Play Box. The smell is a-ma-zing. It’s the main reason that I’ve got some other Amika products on my wishlist as well. Anyway, the smell is amazing and the dry shampoo works kind of okay (not for serious oils in your hair and it does give quite some white dust) so I repurchased it once.
I mostly use dry shampoos for texture in my hair and as a hair perfume, so I don’t mind that it’s not working very well on the oil eliminating front. However, the white dust does bother me a lot because it’s very hard to brush out of my hair, especially when I’m in a hurry in the morning.
The scent is A+++++ but the amount occasional white powder definitely not so I won’t be repurchasing this guy. Also, you only get this small bottle (43,9 ml/1 oz) for €10 and yeah that’s too expensive for something that doesn’t work that well.
The spray dry shampoo that I’ve repurchased the most so far is the Batiste Dry Shampoo. It is available in so many different scents (Tropical and Oriental are my favs) and retails for €5,59 for 200 ml (6.76 fl.oz) so that’s already much better than the Amika price point.
This dry shampoo only gives the slightest amount of white dust and only when you just start using the bottle and at the end of the bottle. Also, the dust is very easy to brush out of your hair. The dry shampoo works pretty good as well. The only downside to this dry shampoo to me is that it doesn’t last very long. I can use it in the morning and by the end of the day the texture is already gone and I can already see my hair getting oily again.
Also, the smell is very strong and does last for the whole day with the same intensity. This is my favorite drugstore dry shampoo though!
This Lush No Drought Dry Shampoo is the first powder one I bought and it’s a no no from me. The only reason I still have it is because it would be a waste to throw it out.
I dislike the smell of this product, it’s hard to get the right amount of product out of the tube and it makes my hands feel very dry when I’ve worked it into my hair.
After using this product I was scared for any other loose powder dry shampoos.
The Lush No Drought Dry Shampoo retails for €6,95 for 50 grams / 1.9 oz.
Until I tried the Briogeo Scalp Revival Charcoal + biotin Dry Shampoo! This product is amazing and is my most used dry shampoo at this moment.
First of all: THIS SCENT IS WONDERFUL! It smells soooo fresh and good and great. Can they please make the scent into a perfume? 🙂
Sometimes it’s hard to get product out of the tube though but that’s the only downside to this (and okay, the price is not the nicest).
The powder is very light weight and finely milled. Therefore it’s easy to work the powder into the roots and the scalp. It does not make my hands feel dry at all. It gives lots of volume to my hair without my hair feeling weird and it also doesn’t give my hair any tangles. This dry shampoo lasts the whole day, I even skipped two hair washes once with this dry shampoo because it works so well!
When you use too much powder it does leave a bit of a white cast but that’s very easy to fade out or brush out.
The Briogeo Scalp Revival Dry Shampoo retails for €24,90 for 50 ml / 1.5 oz.
What is your favorite dry shampoo?
