I got these two bottles for free from Suave [to see how I got them for free, see previous post]. I've been wanting to try a dry shampoo considering I have heard good things and bad things about them. Figured it was worth a shot [it was free, why not?]. I also picked up the captivating curls mousse. My hair really isn't curly, it's more wavy than anything but I wanted to try it too.
Now let's start this review!!
Suave Professionals Dry Shampoo:
Is said to " Absorb oil & refresh between washes".
"This dry shampoo spray, with mineral clay-refreshes hair to prevent a greasy feel between washes."
"How to use: Shake can well before and during application. Hold 8-10 inches from hair. Spray directly on oil roots. Use heat from the palm of your hand to rub in excess powder. For oil prone hair, apply on first day hair is washed to give extra volume and texture as well as to absorb oil throughout the day."
My Verdict: The scent of this is lovely. A very citrus, clean smell. I loved the smell just fine but I did not like the powdery residue it leaves in your hair if you don't happen to work it all in on the first try. Not only the only powdery residue but I had to spray a LOT to make it feel like my hair wasn't oily. Even then, it didn't really do that great of a job. I feel like I've used half of the bottle just within two days! Overall, I'm not super pleased with this product but I will probably continue using what I have left and see if maybe I just need to spray more and cover a bigger area or something.
|[Ewwwww Powder in my hair?!] [yes I need to shave my arms again]|
|Leaves some residue on your hands..ick!|
Repurchase?: I would have to say no on this. The scent was lovely but I don't think this product is for me. If my hair gets too oily, I'll shampoo it. lol. I think they made dry shampoo for the more "lazy" people that don't like to wash their hair a lot. [not saying that I was mine every day but I don't let it get super nasty].
Suave Professionals Captivating Curls Mousse:
"For 24 Hour touchable curls"
"This alcohol-free mousse, with anti-frizz complex, helps define and hold natural curl patterns. The whipped cream texture combines light conditioners and control so that curls are touchable, not crunchy.""How to use: Shake can well and turn upside down, Dispense into hand and emulsify between palms. Squeeze the mousse into wet hair. Gently blot excess water out of hair with a squeezing motion and thin towel. This helps work in the mousse for even curl formation. Blow dry with a diffuser on low setting. Tilt head from side to side allowing heat to flow from ends into root. For shoulder length curls, use 1-2 golf ball size amounts. Use more for longer, thick textured hair. Use less for shorter fine textured hair."
My Verdict: I personally liked this one over the dry shampoo. I don't really have curly hair, just wavy but I wanted to try it out because I do like to keep my waves in order and plus I had never tried a mousse before. Figured, it was free, give it a whirl. The texture of this mousse is A-M-A-Z-I-N-G! I love the texture, the smell, the ease. It's lightweight so it doesn't wear my hair down. When I used this I didn't blow dry it. Blow drying it might help the product work better but I mainly wanted to see how well it would work if I just put some in my hair and then went to bed. It didn't work too bad but I still had frizz [unstoppable]. I think had I used it after a day time shower, it would have had better results. I think sleeping on it made it not work out too well for me. In the end it's a great product and for $2.47, it's cheap enough to give a try! Did I mention it's got the nice clean smell to it too? but not so much citrus this time like with the dry shampoo.
|It looks just like whipped cream!!! I could almost.....|
|Just kidding!!! haha|
|Great Texture and it holds onto for dear life!!|
Repurchase?: I actually might repurchase this. It's only $2.47 so why not??
I hope you all enjoyed my review today! Let me know what you think and if you have purchased any of these before!
