Most standard dry shampoos seem to be a white spray which can cause problems for those with brunette hair. The talcum-powder-in-the-hair look isn’t in at the moment, so the darker haired people of the world are missing out on the power of dry shampoo!
More recently dry shampoos have come onto the market specifically for certain hair colours. label.m, which is part of Toni & Guy, has joined this list with their newly launched Brunette Dry Shampoo.
It comes in a 200ml, sleek looking aerosol spray can which is priced at £10.50. It’s very easy to spray, from all different angles enabling you to get to your whole head of hair.
It can be used to refresh hair or styles in between washes, help absorb excess oil, or give your hair a bit of a lift. I purposely left my hair an extra day without washing to test it out.
The first thing you may notice is that my hair is a slightly different colour – this is due to the fact I’m not totally brunette, and this spray is brown in colour! I sprayed some onto the back of my hand to give you an idea.
I don’t think this caused too much of a problem – as in, it doesn’t look like that’s not my natural hair colour because it blends in so nicely.
I sprayed it on the roots of my hair from the underneath right up to the top, in short, sharp bursts as recommended. I then sprayed all over the rest of my hair. The smell reminds me of spray tans but luckily that doesn’t seem to last! It looked quite wet on my roots once it was sprayed on, but after about 20 seconds it was completely dry and left my hair looking normal.
It definitely left my roots with more volume and my hair
looked a lot less skanky and greasy. Although I still feel like I need to give it a
good wash, it will be useful in emergency situations!
