I admit I just jumped on the dry shampoo trend at the beginning of this year. I have received samples of dry shampoo’s in the past and never used them (nor did I throw them away!). I tucked them in my “samples” box I have and it wasn’t until the beginning of the year that I decide to try them out. I have read a lot of reviews, watched many YouTube videos and read tons of blog posts about how to use them and the best one’s to try. After doing all of that research I went to my stash and pulled out Oscar Blandi Pronto Dry Shampoo (I got a full size sample in an Allure Beauty Box I had gotten in the past & some bloggers I like seem to love it ). It came in an aerosol container and smelled like lemons (lemon scented Pledge to be exact!). I wasn’t crazy about the scent, but after I few trial and errors I finally figured out how to use it with my hair. I learned you must be patience when using dry shampoo (all that sectioning and spraying and rubbing into your scalp and then brushing…yikes) After I ran out of that I decided to try Suave because so many beauty reviews said it was so great and the price was cheaper than a lot to them out there. So on one of my weekly trips to Target I picked up Suave Keratin Infusion Color Care Dry Shampoo .
Since I have color treated hair I ALWAYS make sure anything I use on my is safe for color treated hair. Here is what their website says about it:
Formulated with KERALOCKª TECHNOLOGY, our refreshing Color Care Dry Shampoo is a quick and convenient way to refresh and revive hair between regular washes.
Contains keratin and absorbs oils to:
Extend your colored look
Extend your blowout
First thing I noticed was that It has a musky perfume scent to, but it’s bearable (my husband walked in while I was using it and asked what perfume I was wearing!). It didn’t seem to absorb the oil in my hair like the Oscar Blandi did so I tried more…and more…and a little bit more. Wow my hair felt really gross after I was done. I used way to much product. So I tried it again 2 days later and didn’t apply nearly as much and my hair still felt gross. I gave it a third try and still had no luck. Unfortunately this product didn’t work for me and I think I’ll be going back to Oscar Blandi. Yes, it’s more expensive but I don’t use nearly as much and it really did help absorb the oil quickly and I’m able to go all day and my hair looks and feels soft and clean.
Have you tried either of this dry shampoo’s or do you have one that you really like? I’d love to know about it.
Have a great day!
