I’m back today with a product review, and it’s none other than Not Your Mother’s Clean Freak Refreshing Dry Shampoo!
This dry shampoo was raved about by so many beauty YouTube gurus and bloggers, so I thought, why not give it a try?
I have very fine hair that doesn’t have too much volume, but I’ve heard that dry shampoo can really help give locks that extra oomph. With the summer heat waves rolling in, my fine hair has been feeling a more limp than usual, so I thought, what a perfect time to give dry shampoo a chance?
Now moving on to the actual review…
I’ve been using NYM’s Dry Shampoo for the last two months, and although I really wanted to like it, I just couldn’t bring myself to😦
Maybe I got a bad bottle or something, but I’m just not feeling it😦 Sadly, I think it makes my hair even more oily, greasy, and flat than it initially was.
Just like any other dry shampoo, the product must be shaken vigorously before spraying generously onto the roots.
One of the perks of this is that it leaves no residue. The bad part, though, is that the matte finish makes hair, especially darker strands, look almost gray😦 It really takes away my hair’s natural sheen, so it doesn’t look healthy at all…
And the scent of this is really powerful and overbearing too. I know it’s supposed to be a “clean” scent, but it smells a little too chemical-ish, almost like cleaning supplies😦
I really want to finish the bottle, but the smell really puts me off, and it gives a really unflattering finish, especially since it’s the summer and hair can become oily and greasy so fast😦
The one good thing, though, is that it’s pretty affordable and easy to get, since it’s sold at most local Targets, Wal-Marts, and drugstores.
Do you all have any other dry shampoo recommendations for me? I’d really appreciate it!🙂 I really want to find one that works well and doesn’t smell too strong! Hope you all enjoyed this post, and I’ll be back again soon!
