Every once in a while, we all get a little bit busy and have to get ready on a tight schedule. For days like those, dry shampoo is a lifesaver! LUSH Cosmetics is a great cruelty-free cosmetic reatailer that was founded in the United Kingdom. They feature a variety of natural hair and beauty products from creams, shampoos, masks, shower gels, bath bombs… the list goes on! LUSH products are 100% vegetarian with a few products being vegan as well. I’ve tried some LUSH products in the past (check out my review of one of their face masks!) and thought to pick up their non-aerosol dry shampoo, No Drought!
No Drought comes in 2 sizes, 55g at $8.95 CAD and a larger bottle for 130g at $15.95 CAD. When I first used No Drought, it was a bit different than the aerosol cans of dry shampoo that I’m used to. The loose powder application isn’t too difficult to use, but took a bit of time to get used to. From usually using an aerosol to getting used to the loose powder, it was a bit more difficult for me, but I eventually got the hang of it after a few applications.
Some words of wisdom from me, make sure you’re using No Drought over a sink or tiled floor and put a small amount of the powder in your hand. It can be quite messy when you’re first getting used to using the loose powder and avoid wearing your day clothes or good LBD just in case the white powder catches onto your clothes! After, rub the powder into your roots to mid-shaft and watch your hair transform!
For me, I have super straight, fine hair and because of this… the oils from my scalp travel more easily down the hair follicle. I used to forgo conditioner and anything remotely moisturizing, but have noticed that using oils at the ends of my hair make a difference in the health and shine! For those days that I need a bit of TLC in the roots, dry shampoo helps to save a bit of time for me in the morning and it doesn’t hurt that No Drought has a nice light scent of grapefruit from added essential oils! (It’s also one of the better scented dry shampoos that I’ve tried.)
I like that the dry shampoo isn’t in an aerosol, because you get more product for your buck… but it doesn’t work as well at distributing the product as I’m used to. For smaller areas like bangs or the beginnings of a necessary touch up, this is great. Even if you’re spraying the bottle directly onto the scalp using the bottle, it distrubutes better… but it gives out too much product. But if you use too much of No Drought, you can get a bit of a white residue if your hair is darker (like mine).
I like the product for bangs, but if you’re using it for a quick touch up all over… I’ll have to pass.
