I don’t know how I survived before discovering dry shampoo but ever since I did it has been trying out brand after brand trying to find that magical formula that suited my hair best. My hair is by no means high-maintance but since I have naturally black hair finding a dry shampoo that isn’t too white has always been a challenge for me.
I have tried every dry shampoo that claims to be invisible and lightweight available in salons and drugstores and have been able to find some that are pretty good, but never any that actually captured my brand loyalty.
When I was first introduced to Klorane I was curious due to their claim of being the original dry shampoo (originating over 4 decades ago) with 0% white residue. Available in three formulas; original, natural tint (for darker hair), and one for oily hair I decided to take the original formula out for a test drive.
The two superstar ingredients in their dry shampoos are oat and nettle. Oat is known for its hydrating and softening properties while being rich in vitamins, while nettle helps less excess sebum secretion (which is what causes your scalp to produce oil).
The first thing I noticed when using the dry shampoo is that the spray seemed to be more consistent with an aerosol than other dry shampoos I’ve used in the past. Other formulas I’ve tried seem to be more like a powder/spray whereas the Klorane formula seemed to distribute more evenly without clogging the nozzle.
It soaked up excess oil from my tresses while staying light to the touch and I appreciated how soft it left my hair. You know how some dry shampoos make your hair look freshly washed but leaves it feeling grimy and your scalp in distress? Not with this formula – with the Klorane dry shampoo my hair actually felt like it was freshly washed and it was still easy to re-style. The spray did leave a bit of a white residue, however it wasn’t as chalky as other formulas I’ve tried and it did comb out to leave a transparent finish.
Overall I was impressed by the Klorane dry shampoo and may actually repurchase another can in the future. The only downside for me was the hefty price tag for a drugstore dry shampoo. Although it’s cheaper than its Sephora or salon counterparts, $15.00 seems high when I’m in a drugstore mindset. However, when it’s on sale or if there is a Shoppers Optimum Points event you better believe I’m stocking up.
Klorane was kind enough to gift me a few haircare goodies to try out and review for Style by Fire. All thoughts and opinions are my own and not influenced by the brand nor their affiliates.
