If you’ve been here for a while, you may or may not know that I love hair care. At one point I had about 15 different hair care products. I love testing them, I want my hair to be smooth, shiny, healthy and hydrated (who doesn’t, really).
However, when it comes to dry shampoos, I don’t really have any luck with those. I remember about 4 years ago, I didn’t even know about a concept of dry shampoos, and I found one on my trip to Germany and I was obsessed with it. Obviously, I didn’t blog back then, so I didn’t document it and now I have no idea what it was, but after that one, I couldn’t find one that works for me.
This Boots one is, unfortunately, no exception. I still haven’t tried the Batiste one, but I really hope to try it soon.
I bought this product on my trip to London, and I hauled it in my beauty haul post from London here.
What they claim?
Does it live up to its claims?
Now that’s the tricky part. It does refresh hair. I can go one more day without washing it. However, I still feel like my hair is dirty after using it, but it doesn’t look dirty. It moves in chunks, and it feels almost sticky on my scalp. Almost as if it absorbed all the grease and now its in there all gunky and gross. Hate the feeling.
Root boost is the tricky part. I don’t have a lot of hair and my hair usually doesn’t have a lot of volume. So, of course, when it’s greasy, it’s even more flat. Now, connected to the previous part, it stays flat, but doesn’t look greasy after using it. I haven’t found a dry shampoo that doesn’t do that.
Tropical fragrance. Oh, boy, they live up to that claim for sure. I don’t know how someone still didn’t make technology that would transfer scents 😀 I wish you could sniff it. It’s tropical AF! I can’t stand the scent. I actually gave this product another go a while ago, and when I entered my friend’s office, he asked me (in a quite puzzled manner) “What perfume is that???” and not in a good way 😀 Needless to say, I was mortified. So, yes, I’m not a fan of the scent.
I have to say, I have no idea what any of these mean, and right now I don’t have enough time to check all of them, but butanes and propanes don’t exactly sound very natural 😀 (that much I remember from highschool) and there’s alcohol in it, which is never a good thing, and parfum is pretty high on the list (I wish it was a bit lower :D).
Frankly, I can see how it can work as a quick fix, if you really don’t have enough time to wash your hair, but the situation requires that you look presentable. Maybe if it wasn’t for the tropical scent, I’d enjoy it a little bit more, but with the scent, it’s just too overwhelming for me, and I think I’ll either give it to someone who’ll use it up, or just throw it away. I can’t walk around smelling like a bowl of fruit. Also, I think it produces a lot of product build-up in my scalp, because no matter how many times I comb through my hair, or how much I rub it with a towel, I have white powder all around my scalp, which I am definitely not a fan of.
I guess I would use it unscented once in every two months, when a situation absolutely requires me to.
That being said, I still am to find my holy grail dry shampoo and the quest will continue with a Batiste one (not sure which one, though, so feel free to give suggestions) and I would love to hear which ones you like and use, so I can try some of your favourites 🙂
