Hey everyone! Just a quick post to tell you I have found my holy grail dry shampoos! I have tried a couple others in the past, but none of them is worth writing home about. A while ago I decided to give Klorane a go. They have two dry shampoos, including the classic Gentle Dry Shampoo with Oat Extract and the newer version, Dry Seboregulating Shampoo (with nettle. Both go for around 11 euros here). Being the curious person that I am, I picked both up!
Long story short, I don’t think I’ll want to try anything else soon! None of these has a very strong fragrance, though they do have some scent to make hair smell fresher. The spray is just powerful enough, but not so powerful that it becomes impossible to avoid getting it on the hair. None of the formulas is drying for my hair. If a little accidentally gets on it, it would tangle up a little, but definitely not the painfully brittle mess that I have experienced before.
Now, what’s the difference between these two? Let me start with the Gentle Dry Shampoo with Oat Extract. If you don’t have an oily scalp, this is what I would recommend. It gently freshens hair up, gives the roots some lift, and the effect lasts a whole day. The Dry Seboregulating Shampoo really absorbs excess sebum on the scalp well. I like the amount of lift it gives the roots: it is seriously just about as good as a volumizing styling product! The best part? The roots pretty much stay that way! My experience with most volumizing products is I have to keep ruffling my hair up every 20 minutes if I want it to stay volumized, but with this dry shampoo the lift is natural yet persistent! The effect also lasts around two days for me, so I can use it two days before I shampoo my hair, and it’ll look pretty good till that happens!
Bottom line: No chunky white mess, no harsh drying, and the most natural root lift I’ve yet to witness from a dry shampoo, Klorane Gentle Dry Shampoo with Oat Extract and Dry Seboregulating Shampoo are by far the best ones I have tried. With the combination of chemically-treated, sensitized hair and scalp that leans oily, I kept thinking dry shampoos would either be too drying for my hair or not sebum-absorbing enough for my scalp. Both Klorane dry shampoos prove otherwise! My personal favorite is the Dry Seboregulating Shampoo, as it gives my roots a really nice lift and the effect lasts for two days. If your scalp isn’t on the oily side, then the Gentle Dry Shampoo with Oat Extract should do the trick! They are not the cheapest dry shampoos around, but so far they are the only ones I will repurchase!
Have you tried any of the Klorane dry shampoos?
