How many of us have faced the dreaded days when you wake up late and have to rush through your morning routine, but your hair looks like an oily mess and you don’t have time to wash, dry and then style it. Sorry wrong question, how many of you haven’t faced this situation? I see no hands being raised here. This is where this beautiful innovation called dry shampoo comes to our rescue. With all this in mind, I bought the “Sephora Express Dry Shampoo” spray. Was it any good? Let us find out.
Product Description and Claims:
Rs. 550 for 75 ml.
The dry shampoo is a liquid spray and comes in a simple aerosol spray bottle. This makes it more convenient to use than the powder-based dry shampoos which can be a little messy.
My Experience with Sephora Express Dry Shampoo:
It is a dud. A total dud. It does nothing. No, I am sorry, it does something, it sometimes makes my hair greasier than it was before spraying on the dry shampoo. I just don’t like this dry shampoo and I say that after having given enough chances to this little guy. The first time when I used it on my hair, it hadn’t been washed for 4 days (guys no judging, it was during the winter, in DELHI!) and I used it to help me with the oily hair, but it did nothing. I thought that may be dry shampoo does not work on 4-day old greasy mess and decided to give it another chance.
So then, I decided to give it a try on 3-day-old hair, but there was still nothing. It just added more heaviness to my already oily hair and added to the discomfort. Then one fine day, I decided to use the dry shampoo on 2-day-old hair. My hair wasn’t greasy that day, but I wanted to add more bounce to them, but to my utter dismay, it made hair flatter than it was and not to forget the heaviness that it added! But I still didn’t give up on it and I used it a day after I had washed my hair and it still did nothing. I was so disappointed, this is the first dry shampoo that I have ever used and it turned out to be useless. This is something that I do not expect from a brand like Sephora. I mean why would you name a product dry shampoo and make it do the reverse?
They might as well have named it “does-nothing-and-sometimes-makes-your-hair-flatter-spray.” 😛 There this gives the consumer the right message (My sister once told me that may be it is meant for those people who have big hair and want to reduce the volume :D). They should test their products better before putting them on shelves. I really feel cheated and sometimes when you have such a bad experience with one product, it also has a spillover effect on other products, which may be good but, because of that single product I have a lowly opinion of the brand and it leads me into thinking that none of their products are any good or are at par with other brands. Any brand worth its name should take care of that.
Anyway, let me now sum up the pros and cons:
Pros of Sephora Express Dry Shampoo:
- None! Not even single one that I can think of.
Cons of Sephora Express Dry Shampoo:
- Doesn’t work as a dry shampoo.
- Sometimes makes your hair greasier than it was before using it.
Would I Repurchase Sephora Express Dry Shampoo?
No! No! No! No. This doesn’t work and I definitely am not going to purchase it ever again, nor would I suggest it to anyone.
