Don’t Wash… Just Powder Your Hair!

Posted on November 8, 2011


Washing your hair daily will dry out your hair, scalp, and cause static especially during the cold winter months.

While I know it’s not advised to wash my hair everyday… how could I not?! After just one day, I’m left with clumpy, flat, and oily hair. Gross!

So I set out on a mission to find a dry shampoo that can help eliminate the need for daily washing.

Warning: Some gross oily hair pictures up ahead… I didn’t wash my hair for almost 3 days. I wanted to really put the products to the test. Don’t try this at home. 😉

Here are the 4 contenders:

Oscar Blandi- Dry Shampoo                       Oscar Blandi- Dry Shampoo Spray


Ojon Rub-Out Dry Cleansing Spray            Suave Dry Shampoo Spray


1) Oscar Blandi- Dry Shampoo (2.5 oz for $19)
Not gonna waste much time on this. I hated it. It’s messy and left my head with patchy white areas even after repeated patting and brushing.

2) Oscar Blandi- Volumizing Dry Shampoo Spray (5 oz for $23)
Has a lemony smell and was easy to apply. Just shake, point and spray 6-8 inches from the scalp while tossing your hair. This product had the least amount of the white powder left behind in my hair.

The results were good. It’s not as thorough as washing your hair of course, but it got the ugly oily clumps out.  Instead of looking like 2-3 days of not washing, it looked more like 1 day of not washing.

3) Ojon Rub-Out Dry Cleansing Spray (4.1 oz for $24)
Smell reminds me of tea tree, but I’m probably smelling the “soap bark tree” as marked on the bottle.  The application was the same as Oscar Blandi’s spray. There was a little bit of visible white powder on my hair, but was easy to remove. Just simply pat out or brush.

I would have to say that the results and experience were comparable to Oscar Blandi’s. Not much different.. just the smell and price.

Ojon Before:

4) Suave Dry Shampoo Spray (5 oz for about $3)
This spray has a sweet smell which I liked. Surprisingly, it was also comparable to Ojon and Oscar Blandi’s sprays. Suave had a little of the white powder left behind, but it was also easy to pat/brush away. I don’t have before and after pictures for this product but for $3, you really can’t go wrong.

Best Pick:

I recommend the Suave Dry Shampoo Spray!~
The application and results for all 3 sprays were comparable… so might as well go for the best value. Each of the sprays won’t last a long time, so it’s a good idea to go with the $3 bottle. While Ojon and Suave needed a little patting on the head to get rid of the extra white powder, it wasn’t a big deal. When it’s time to wash your hair, just be sure to pay extra attention to your scalp where the powder may have settled.

Tip: Try planning your hairstyle around your wash schedule.
Day 1 (Wash Day): Style and wear your hear down since you’ll have the most volume on this day.

Day 2: Spray a little of the dry shampoo and pull back 1/2 your hair or clip some of your hair back.
Day 3: Spray the dry shampoo and try wearing a braid or pulling your hair back into a ponytail since your hair will lack volume.
