Hallo guys! My apologies for being MIA lately. I just got back from my short European trip. My head is still above the clouds and I’ve got a massive jetlag. For more vacay photos and short videos, please check my Insta @reviewsandotherstuff. The travel post will be up soon on the blog, but for today’s post, I’m about to do a short roundup review of my favorite drugstore dry shampoos.
A couple of weeks ago, I did a review of my favorite dry shampoos of all time, you can check that out in this link. In that said review, I mentioned that I will be reviewing the different types of Dove Dry Shampoos since I was really quite impressed with its quality. However, upon further tests, I found out that all the Dove Dry Shampoos worked pretty much the same way on my hair. So, I decided to just talk about my top two favorite Dove Dry Shampoos in this review. Here they are.
Detox and Purify Dry Shampoo (5 oz: 4.89 USD, 7.3 oz: 5.88 USD) – This is the first Dove Dry Shampoo I’ve tried and I really love it. It’s got this sort of perfumey apple-ish scent that kind of lingers, and there is also a very subtle white residue on this but it goes away easily. It gets rid of excess oil and makes the hair look clean fairly easily and it adds a bit of volume as well.
Volume and Fullness Dry Shampoo (5 oz: 4.89 USD, 7.3 oz: 5.88 USD) – I was excited to try this hoping that this would give my hair more volume than the Dove Detox Dry Shampoo above. While this has a nice sort of sweet scent, I feel like this didn’t really add much volume to my hair when compared to the detox dry shampoo. They both have the same effect on my strands. Overall, I realized that I could pretty much use any kind of Dove Dry Shampoo for my hair type. So, having at least one or two of these dry shampoos would be enough.
SGX NYC Dry Touch Volumizing Dry Shampoo (6.5oz: 6.99 USD) – I was really surprised at how good this dry shampoo worked for my hair. It has no residue, and it kind of works like my favorite IGK First Class Charcoal Dry Shampoo, reviewed HERE. The scent of this is really nice and clean, plus the packaging is cute.
TRESemmé Between Washes Volumizing Dry Shampoo (4.3 oz: 5.99 USD, 7.3 oz: 5.98 USD) – This dry shampoo leaves no residue and has a somewhat fruity apple scent but it’s not too strong. The 4.3 oz bottle looks quite thin and I feel like I’ve consumed almost all of it already at first spray, but yeah, this is still a pretty solid drugstore dry shampoo.
L’Oreal Paris Extraordinary Clay Dry Shampoo (4 oz: 5.22 USD) – Also called Elvive Extraordinary Clay, this dry shampoo has a berry fruity scent and it’s not that overwhelming. This leaves no residue though it’s not the best at volumizing the hair. Yet it does make the hair look clean and fresh the following day.
Bottom line, I really love this drugstore dry shampoo finds. They’re affordable and I’m actually quite impressed with their qualities, especially the SGX NYC (Salon Grafix) Dry Shampoo which is super affordable and it works just like a high-end dry shampoo or even better.
Have you tried any of these products before? What’s your go-to dry shampoo?
