Throwback Thursday

January 31, 2019

My love affair with dry shampoo has been a long one. It has gotten me through late nights, early mornings and overall laziness. Remembering back, it all started with the @bedheadbytigi Rockaholic Dirty Secret Dry Shampoo ($10 for 2.5 ounces or $21.99 for 6.3 ounces at @ultabeauty). I wanted to see if this product was as good as I recalled it being, so I purchased the travel size to try out…again!

What it claims:
๐Ÿ”˜ Spray at roots to absorb excess oils, make hair smell fresh and keep it rockin’ one more night
๐Ÿ”˜ Less frequent shampooing saves hair from heat styling damage and colour loss
๐Ÿ”˜ Unbelievable texture is perfect for big hair or updos
๐Ÿ”˜ Near colorless formula won’t show on your clothes or pillowcase

My experience:
๐Ÿ”˜ I washed my hair three (3) days ago.
๐Ÿ”˜ I applied this at night and in the morning for the last two (2) days.
๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿป๐Ÿ‘Ž๐Ÿป It is nearly colorless. Thatโ€™s great for most people, but Iโ€™m not a huge fan of not being able to see where I already sprayed.
๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿป๐Ÿ‘Ž๐Ÿป The smell is nice, but it doesnโ€™t last or make my hair smell fresher.
๐Ÿ‘Ž๐Ÿป It only did a decent job at eliminating the excess oils in my hair and that feeling is temporary. It doesnโ€™t take long for the greasiness to reappear.

My verdict?
Itโ€™s obvious to me that my dry shampoo standards have improved immensely over the years. While I can see how I was impressed with this being my first experience, I have moved onto more powerful options. Iโ€™ll use this up, but wonโ€™t be repurchasing.

What did you used to love, try again and was surprised with how you felt about it a second time around?
