I’m one of the few people that has never tried dry shampoo. Maybe it’s because in my younger years I was told to use baby powder as an alternative to washing my hair and I was left with a big mess and white roots. Not a very pretty picture! However recently my curiosity was peaked when I began noticing dry shampoo in Sephora. So being the daring diva that I am I decided to see if this product was something that could make my beauty routine easier.
Klorane has created a dry shampoo that is not only eco-friendly but also gentle to your hair. Some of the key ingredients are:
- Oat extract – to soothe and calm the scalp
- Corn and rice starch – for powerful cleansing
- Cylcodextrins – natural absorbent microspheres to rid hair of excess dirt.
The product is very simple to use: simply squeeze the bottle (see below) and a gentle, airy mist flows out. I applied the spray to my roots (as directed), waited a few minutes and brushed it out.
I was a bit worried about removing the product but thankfully Klorane is very easy to brush out with minimal effort. I must admit that I was quite surprised on how well it worked, my hair smelled better, my scalp was less oily and my hair looked fluffier. Success! This is the perfect solution for those times that you can’t/don’t want to wash your hair. There are just some days that you want to take a break from heat styling your hair (blow dry, curling iron, flat iron etc).
Side note: I accidentally dropped the bottle and I noticed that some of the powder came out, I picked it up and shook it and a lot more powder came out. I would be concerned about traveling with this product and getting it on my clothes – so be sure to place it in a baggie for travel. Otherwise the product works well and is a godsend to those that have time constraints, are bed ridden or for those simply looking for an alternative to washing and drying their hair.
Klorane is available at Sephora and Beauty.com for $18
