Best/Favorite Dry Shampoo?
« on: January 31, 2014, 07:51:15 PM »
I've been using the Suave one, but my fiance hates the smell!  Does anyone have any other recommendations?

Batiste dry shampoo has a range of scents, I believe. I have one at work I occasionally use for a freshen-up. Not sure which fragrance it is but it isn't too objectionable and does a good job.

Klorane has a good name. I used it many years ago so can't remember what the fragrance was like but I don't have a memory of disliking it. I think it's quite faint.

I'm currently using the original Lee Stafford, which is sprayed on the roots and just rubbed away with fingertips but I have a feeling the scent won't agree with your fiance. I like it because it keeps my hair shiny.

Ooh, I've just found a link for you! (Seems using Lee Stafford makes me a "hip 16-year-old" although I'm using "for oily roots" not "poker straight"). Anyway, it may be helpful. I didn't know there were so many variations on a theme:

Tresemme has one that my DD sometimes uses.  I don't recall how the scent is though.  Also, I just read about a new one from Herbal Essence that might be nice.

There are two dry shampoos that I swear by. I love the Klorane Gentle Dry Shampoo with Oat MilkEnamel and the Lush No Drought Dry Shampoo. The Lush is the best smelling dry smampoo I have ever tried in my life and the Klorane really does not leave your hair feeling flaky as I think most dry shampoos tend to do.

you can also make you own dre hair shampoo

cornstarch
baking soda
cocoa powder - just make sure it's unsweetened! Sweetened cocoa powder will turn your hair into a sticky mess.
a paper funnel
a container to store it in
measuring spoons
I've also heard of people adding essential oils to the mix

Oh gosh forget making your own dry shampoo, i dont have time to comb my hair let alone make my own dry shampoo haha. I use and have been using the Baptiste dry shampoo, does the job well and my partner thinks i have washed my hair every time i use it so its a win win all round. Its also super cheap which is what we are all after. Here is a link if you have not heard of it

Usually I use dry shampoo when I need to quickly freshen up when my roots are oily (it happens to me only summer in warm weather ) Of course, dry shampoo can not replace washing your hair , but it helps especially in moments when rushing or my hair is not in good condition. I use Batiste dry shampoo too. 
I have come across three of the varieties of Batiste, but they may be more.

Interesting! I've wanted to try a dry shampoo for a long time, but am afraid the scent would be too powerful. My hair is very fine and will easily look limp. I usually wash it every other day, but the second day the roots are a bit oily already. Now I wonder about the dry shampoo! Which one would you say has the most neutral / non-existing scent? (Of course, it might not be even available over here, but still.)
  • Complexion: NC 15 winter, NC 20 summer. Still oily.
  • Eyes: Blue
  • Hair: *Very* fine + wavy. Middle / dark blonde (my natural hair color) with some highlights.

Tresemme makes one for curly hair that is a lightweight mousse rather than a spray. You massage it on your scalp and hair then use a towel to dry as much as you can. It leaves your hair feeling and smelling very clean. I see no reason other hair types couldn't use it as it's quite lightweight.Bonus:it's cheap!!
  • Complexion: Light skintone,oily and somewhat sensitive
  • Eyes: Brown
  • Hair: Medium brown with blonde highlights

I have never used dry shampoo! Doesn’t it leave a residue in your hair?

Batiste XXL for volume is the best product I've used... And i tried a bunch of them.. It doesn't leave any residue, and it actually lasts more than a day..

A very warm welcome Eeemm. I have never used dry shampoo in my life. Am I missing something?
