Review: Not Your Mother’s Dry Shampoo

The full name is: Not Your Mother’s Clean Freak Dry Shampoo.  Wow, someone named their product with a longer name than mine.

If you follow this diary, you know I had an awful time with Batiste’s dry shampoo which absolutely sucked. 

I’ve had luck with Not Your Mother’s sea salt spray and picked up two travel cans of this assuming it would be awesome. The stuff is! 

For anyone who’s ever tried a dry shampoo and felt dry shampoo wasn’t for them, try brands until you find one you like. It could be you’re using the wrong type of dry shampoo. 

Batiste dry shampoo was awful on all accounts. My hair got ultra greasy immediately. It was chalk level thick. My hair looked and smelled like a powdered wig. Nothing good.  

Not Your Mother’s is good for people who aren’t blonde. The stuff does. Not. Show. White. On your head.  

The grease levels get cut down so you can style away! Surely dry shampoo is never first day wash day hair. This friends is the best you’ll get and it’s fairly good enough for me.  My hair doesn’t look like I compose music. Always a plus because I don’t want to LOOK like a composer animating her first movie, you know? I want to have hair like I change letters on Wheel of Fortune. Glamorous, grease-free hair.

You know the corny Midwestern saying, “If it ain’t broke, don’t fix it?” I’m sticking with this brand. Anything that reduces my wash cycle and makes me look good enough to step outside of the home is awesome. My hair naturally gets destroyed easily doing little to it. Reducing my wash days is a life saver for my hair health with my greasy roots/dry everything else syndrome.

The smell isn’t bad at all. A relief from Batiste. Nobody is sponsoring me right now to say any of this. I really like the product I just tried out on two occasions on two separate wash cycles. Go get thyself a can o’ Not Your Mother’s dry shampoo!
