I have always wanted to love dry shampoo, but I have never found a brand that worked for me; a lot of the drugstore shampoos, like Garnier Fructis or Herbal Essences, just didn’t work for my fine hair. They left too much residue, or left my hair with that sort of lank, unwashed feel to it, even though it didn’t look oily. Or, it tried to hard to smell “fresh” and had an overwhelming perfume-type odor. I resigned myself to just suck it up and wash my hair every day, not wanting to deal with spending money for a product that didn’t work.
I caved last week when I hadn’t gotten a lot of sleep and was too exhausted to do much else but get my lunch and coffee ready for the next morning and roll into bed. I couldn’t even bring myself to hop in the shower to wash my hair. Now that I’m earning a bit more money, I’m able to spend a little more on beauty products, so I searched for the best dry shampoos, especially for my fine hair and sensitive scalp. Yes, Klorane is expensive at $20 for a 3.2 oz bottle at Sephora, but I was going to try just one more time, and if the expensive one didn’t do it, I’d be done with dry shampoo forever.
Luckily, Klorane is so, so different from the dry shampoos have tried before.
Just a couple of sprays, and my hair looked like it had just been washed; the volumizer in the shampoo lifted it just enough to not have that lank look I hate so much, but it didn’t volumize it so much that it looked like I just flipped upside down and hairsprayed my hair. It was a little sticky, so it definitely felt like there was product in it, but again, not to the point where it bothered me. The smell is very subtle and pleasant, and it didn’t irritate my scalp at all, which was a plus. It worked so well, that my hair looked ready to go even the morning after I used it.
I’m so excited to have found a shampoo that works for me, and it’s going to save me a couple of hours every week of unnecessary showering, which is a great plus. So, even if dry shampoos haven’t worked for you in the past, maybe you should give this one a shot!
*As a note, if you color your hair, make sure to get dry shampoo that is made specifically for color treated hair — this is not one of those.*
