“Not Your Mother’s Dry Shampoo” Review

Hello lovelies! 🙂

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!

  1. Sorry to hear that the NYM dry shampoo isn’t what you’re looking for. I’ve been having trouble with dry shampoo as well, still cant find the one that doesn’t make my hair oily. Thanks for the honest review 🙂

    • Hi Tiffany! Thank you so much for stopping by 🙂 And yes! I don’t know why it’s so hard to find one that really works well. I’ll definitely keep you updated if I find one that’s good ❤


  2. Totally agree with you! I was super excited to use this after so many great reviews, but was also sadly disappointed. This product makes my hair feel so sticky and gross with barely spraying any on! Not sure how so many people like it.

      Thank you so much for stopping by Mikela! 🙂


    • Hi Raya! 🙂 Thank you so much for stopping by! And I would say the smell is definitely a bit strong for me, though it’s probably because I’m used to lightly scented products?
      And aww, you’re so sweet! 🙂 Thank you so much!


    • Aww it’s okay, I actually prefer washing my hair over using dry shampoo as well 🙂 I just decided to give it a try because I heard that it can really help with adding volume! Thank you so much for stopping by dear ❤
