Dry Shampoo Review

Rhyming words make me smile. One of these dry shampoos made me smile too.


I've been growing my hair out for about 1 1/2 years and have tried to blow dry, curl and flat iron it as little as possible. Thus, I try to only wash it every other day. Some days it's fine, others…not so much.

On those "not so much" days, my hair can look a little greasy. Product can make it even worse. So I've been very anxious to see if dry shampoo could extend the life of my style.

I purchased Kenra Platinum Dry Shampoo last week. After I got home I realized I had gotten a sample of Suave Professionals Dry Shampoo Spray in the mail. So here's my take on both.


I tried Kenra on second-day hair. Following the instructions, I shook the can and sprayed the product throughout my hair. I focused mainly on my part at the roots since that's what would show. After the shampoo dried, I brushed my hair to disperse the product.

My first impression? I used so little product that I was nervous it would work. I couldn't see anything on my hair, but after brushing, success! My hair had lost its greasy sheen. Even better, it had more volume than before I started.

Some hairsprays smell overly sweet or like rubbing alcohol, but this one smells almost tropical with a mango-melon scent. A plus in my book!

Another plus? Kenra offers a 100% money-back guarantee. If you're not satisfied, just return your product to the place of purchase and you'll receive a full-refund. Kenra Platinum Dry Shampoo can be purchased at salons (for the money-back guarantee) or online.


Up next was Suave. The instructions told me to hold the can 8-10 inches away from my hair and spray on my roots. Then rub in the excess powder with the heat of my hands.

The biggest initial difference was that I could see the powder. My hair is dark, but even after rubbing the product in, it was still visible. I had to really work for it to fully dissolve.

After all that work I was disappointed. My hair still seemed greasy. There was less of a sheen, but the oil never fully absorbed. The scent was so-so and I felt like I needed to wash my hands after using the product.

Maybe using the Kenra first spoiled me, but I probably won't use the rest of my sample can. If you'd like to try it for yourself, Suave Professionals Dry Shampoo can be purchased where Suave Professionals products are sold.
