Being the lazy and enterprising person I am, I thought it was time to look at dry shampoos as a means of refreshing my hair in between my twice weekly washing days while I wait for the warmer weather to arrive for more pleasant hair washing experiences.
Klorane extra gentle dry shampoo with oat milk
- for frequent use
- cleanse hair without water
- contains aluminium starch and fine oat milk powder to soften and add volume back to limp greasy hair
- aerosol spray can action to deposit powder onto hair to absorb the grease before being brushed off
- fresh clean scent that reminds me of freshly washed linen
How it performed
- used on 3 day old head of hair, it did mop up some of the grease on my head and gave some volume back to roots.
- contains alcohol which is used as the propellant and quickly evaporates when sprayed - I found it slightly drying on hair with daily use.
- being a white powder, it took alot of effort and much brushing to remove the dry shampoo out of my thick and dark coloured hair.
- can aggravate head with all the extra brushing if you are dandruff prone. Sometimes it was hard to work out whether I was brushing off oat meal or dandruff flakes.
- as I have thick hair, a 150ml can lasted just over 3 uses, making it quite cost ineffective for frequent use.
|Dry shampoo powder|
After trying out dry shampoos, I think they are a poor man's substitute for hair washing and not all that much more convenient than the real deal unless you are chair or bed bound and have little other choice. I did not find that the dry shampoo powder gave me back enough lift and volume back to my hair, nor did it cleaned hair very properly. Even in this inconvenient cold weather, I rather bring in the portable heater into my non-heated bathroom to wash my hair the proper way.
