all about dry shampoo

about 6 months ago, i decided to change up my beauty regimen. part of my plan involved washing my hair less frequently - i've always read that you don't have to wash your hair every day but my greasy scalp disagreed. nevertheless, i pushed through a difficult week of having oily hair every other day... and now i am 6 months into a new routine and loving it. in the process, i have tried 5 dry shampoos. this post is all about them!



tresemme quick start
aerosol spray
white in colour
161 grams
approximately $5 to $7


i did not like this dry shampoo. it left an unpleasant residue on my hair, smelled terrible, and was not effective. i only got about half a day of grease control with this dry shampoo.



batiste dry shampoo for dark and deep brown hair
aerosol spray
dark in colour
90 grams
approximately $11


this dry shampoo is one of my favourites. it is easy to use, has a pleasant scent, and is very very effective. i got around 1-2 days of grease control with this dry shampoo. the only issue is that i only got 8-10 uses out of this 90 gram container of product.



batiste dry shampoo blush (floral & flirty scent)
aerosol spray
white in colour
30 grams
approximately $5


very similar to the previous dry shampoo except that the product comes out white in colour. it is still very easy to blend. the scent is very pleasant but i only got about 3 uses out of this canister of product.



principessa beauty notte breeze dry shampoo for darker shades
powder form
medium brown colour
125 grams
$24


this is my favourite dry shampoo out of the ones i've tried. i love this product and consider it one of my essentials. it smells great and is very effective. similar to the batiste products, i get around 1-2 days of grease control with this dry shampoo. the container of product also lasts forever - i apply this dry shampoo with a powder puff so there is very little waste.



cake beauty satin sugar hair & body refreshing powder for darker hues
powder form
medium brown colour - a little lighter and more red than the principessa dry shampoo
50 grams
$18


i found this dry shampoo similar in effectiveness as the principessa dry shampoo but i didn't like the scent on my hair. the cake beauty dry shampoo smells very sweet - too sweet for my taste. pun intended.



the below video contains a few more details and also shows 3 tools that can be used to apply the powder form dry shampoo.



there are a few other brands i'd like to try - my friend uses klorane and seems to like it. a couple of my youtube viewers also mentioned lush's no drought and marc anthony's 2nd day clear dry shampoo.

are you a fan of dry shampoo? have you tried any that you would recommend?
