I used to wash my hair daily. Sometimes twice a day when I was a gym rat. Those days are long gone and I now wash my hair every other day or third day. I have oily roots and with my new favorite shampoo, Lush Big Shampoo(see my post for a brief review), my hair is good till third day with the help of a good dry shampoo for volume.
I have tried a few drug store dry shampoo. Tresemme is one of them and that doesn't do much for controlling oil for my roots. Even the price is good, I don't like it as it does not make my hair feel refreshed and cleaner after application.
The two I am comparing is Oscar Blandi Volumizing Dry Shampoo and Batiste Original Dry Shampoo. I have been using Batiste for almost a year and a half now. They offer a few different scents and shades. This green yellow container is the original scent. It really gives my hair a lift with added volume and a clean feeling after application. Just spray at hair roots and wait a few seconds before brushing or flipping. It is available in most drug stores at $9.99. The only down side of this particular one is it does leave a white residue and I have dark hair so I have to be careful to really brush it out.
Oscar Blandi is a salon brand and is not as readily available in most drug stores. I have heard a lot of good reviews for their dry shampoo powder so I thought I would give this volumizing dry shampoo spray a try. I got mine at my local Winners for $9.99(retails usually at $25). It has a very nice lemon citrusy scent. Kind of remind me of lemon-scented Pledge. This does not leave a white residue so it is a plus. However, for the volumizing part, I don't find it overly-impressive. It does not give my hair a lift. It does help with the oil-controlling though.
Between the two, I much prefer Batiste. I have also bought a different Batiste which is for brunette/darker hair and I am hoping it wouldn't leave a white residue like the Original formula.
Do you use dry shampoo? Which brand is your favorite?
