Not Your Mother's Clean Freak Dry Shampoo Review

I've made quite a habit of stalking the aisles of American Drugstores when I've made it over to the states. One prowling session I picked up something I'd actually forgotten on my trip, a can of dry shampoo, which you have a lot of hair and a fringe like me it is almost a necessity. I almost went for my old faithful, Batiste, but it had a rather steep price tag so opted for the cheaper option in the form of Not Your Mother's Clean Freak Dry Shampoo, and boy am I glad I did, and let me tell you why...

I think the reason this particular dry shampoo works well for me it the consistency - it's not too powdery so doesn't leave a white cast whilst applying and a slightly grey tinge after rubbing it in, nor is it too wet so it doesn't leave your hair sticky - picture a Venn diagram and NYM's sitting slap bang in the middle. It leaves your hair looking exactly how you want it after using dry shampoo, clean and without a trace of the stuff. If you do get a little spray happy, you can get a teeny bit of white cast, but as someone with dark brown hair, I pinky promise that after a bit of tousling and zhuzhing your hair looks clean, and not like you're a ghost in a primary school play. The smell isn't awful, but I wouldn't say it doubles as a hair fragrance either, but it doesn't linger in the hair so it's nothing to worry about. 

Finally, Urban Outfitters have started stocking this dry shampers in the UK, but with a tearjerking price tag of £9, so for us Brits it's a little higher in price than the couple of dollars you pick it up for in the aisles of Walgreens. I do highly recommend this dry shampoo for all your greasy hair needs, and I do think from time to time I'll pick this up in UO when I feel like treating myself, but will continue to scour the nation's pharmacies to see if I can find something which compares, but as of right now NYM, nothing compares 2U.
