New products don’t always excite me, but after flipping through the new issue of Lucky Magazine (with Nicole Richie on the cover), I did see something that intrigued me, an ad for Tresemme’s Fresh Start Dry Shampoo. Dry shampoo? For those of you who aren’t familiar with dry shampoos, it’s typically a powdered type product that’s used to clean and keep your hair fresh in between washes. I’ve used the one by Cake Beauty (although I’m not a huge fan of bottles where you shake the product on) and heard people rave about Frederic Fekkai’s dry shampoo – a bit pricey, I tend not to spend tons on hair products. Excited to see this product, I hightailed it to Shoppers Drug Mart to buy it, at $6.99 CAD, a steal in my books. Interestingly, I also spotted their Fresh Start Waterless Foam Shampoo for dry/curly to normal hair. Foam? Anyone try this one?
So how did the Tresemme Fresh Start Dry Shampoo work out? The product has mineral clay & citrus, once sprayed, it removes oil and odour while giving some volume. Shake bottle and spray lightly (just like hair spray), it’s a fine mist. Let it stand for 1-2 minutes and brush it out. I noticed right away, that my hair had more volume and my limpy hair seemed to have new life. If you have dark hair, make sure you brush out the product thoroughly, cause the spray may set and leave a bit of residue behind. I’ve used the spray about 4-5 times so far and I think it’s a good alternative for between washes. It’s especially a savior when you wake up late and have no time for a proper wash and blow-dry.
