Review ~ Tresemme Freshstart Dry Shampoo

I have pretty thick hair that is mostly on the dry side so I usually only wash my hair every 3 to 4 days.  So when I'm in between washes I like to use a dry shampoo. I've tried the one by Big Sexy Hair and it really is amazing. If hairspray and dry shampoo has a baby together it would be the BSH dry shampoo! It gives your hair a ton of volume and smells great. So, being that the BSH was the only one I've tried, I had high hopes for Tresemme's dry shampoo and in short, I was not that impressed. It does smell great, but as far as getting rid of oily-ness  it does not work well. I get better results and more volume from just using a light dusting of baby powder. Tresemme actually works for immediate results, but within a few hours your hair will look oily again as if you didn't use anything at all. 

Here is my hair unwashed for about 3-4 days
You have to give the can a good shake and spray the roots. Let it set for about 1-2 minutes till it turns white like this. 

Then brush the product through. Sometimes I like to just use my fingers and rub it into my scalp. As you can see it does kind of dull the hair, which in turn makes it look cleaner. One thing to be aware of is if you use too much it will show up a little in flash photography. It won't look white, but your hair will look a little dull. 
Here's the finished look after I fluffed it a bit with my fingers. It's not a bad product if you really just can't wash your hair and you need a quick fix. It definitely makes your hair smell good too. I really like to use this after a night at the club to get rid of that nasty cigarette smell. 

So would I repurchase? Maybe. If I had a coupon or something I think I would;  if for nothing the long last fresh smell.


Have any of you tried this dry shampoo? Which brand would you recommend?

To be honest I have this & only spray it in my hair for a little extra clean scent. I agree it doesn't get rid of the oiliness.

I'm also a little disappointed bu this. The first time I used it I absolutely loved it, the second time I hated it LOL! Now I think it's just OK but my favorite is still Batiste!

I've tried it too, and I was thinking the same as you did.. It was ok, but it didn't last all day, and wheres the point then?

great and honest review. I've tried this product and I hate it... I still use it on days when I'm running really late and know I won't have time to wash, but you're right, it totally only works for the first 10 minutes, then your hair is back to being greasy haha

I've been thinking of trying this stuff out! Usually I just use baby powder when I'm in a rush to get rid of oilyness, which works pretty well. Hmmm...good review though!

Great post & review! I almost bought this last night...but I have pretty dark hair, so I'm thinking the powder might show up a little. We'll see!

Thanks for the review I won't be trying this anytime soon. I use pronto dry shampoo from sephora and I love it. I love it so much I'm not even looking for an upgrade!
