A couple of years ago, I was reading a magazine article about hair care when I stumbled upon the concept of dry shampoo. I was never really aware of what it was or what the significance of it was. You use a dry shampoo in between washing your hair. Dry shampoo absorbs any excess oil in your hair without drying your scalp out, so that you don’t have to wash your hair everyday. Washing your hair everyday can affect the texture and well-being of your hair. So recently, when I heard that Herbal Essences came out with their Naked line of hair care (here’s my review), I came across this particular product. After a quick research online, I found that Herbal Essences Naked Dry Shampoo was being raved about extensively and you know that I had to give it a try! This product is in the form of an aerosol can (just like hairspray). It has natural tapioca to absorb oil and rejuvenate dirty hair for a clean feeling. Like the other products from the Naked line, this product’s fragrance is a mixture between white grapefruit and mint. It has no parabens or dyes.
After using this product for a month, I can definitely say that this is a pretty decent drugstore brand dry shampoo. Firstly, I love the smell of this product. It’s not overbearing nor does it linger on too much. It’s the perfect balance between the two. It smells clean and fresh, which is what you want with a dry shampoo. Secondly, the aerosol spray can is very simple to use. What I do is, I flip my hair upside down and spray this product all over (especially at the roots). Then I flip my hair back and spray under the crown area for extra volume. I find this absorbs all the excess oil without drying my hair out. Thirdly, this dry shampoo adds volume to your hair. I found that by using my method of using this product, I was able to garner some volume back into my hair in between washing it! I usually wash my hair every other day, but I found that when I use this, my hair feels like it’s just been washed! Lastly, it doesn’t leave any residue nor does it make my hair sticky. My hair feels soft to touch and just perfect (honestly, that’s the best way I can describe this). All things considered, I can safely say that this is one of my favourite dry shampoos from the drugstore. It worked for my hair type and I am pretty sure that I will be repurchasing this product once I am done with it! I got mine from Wal-Mart for less than $7 (CDN). If you’re looking for an inexpensive dry shampoo to try, then this is it!
