Beauty: Batiste Dry Shampoo – Beautiful Brunette

I’ve heard great things about Batiste Dry Shampoo that when I needed to buy more after I ran out, I immediately knew I wanted to try this. When I saw they had a special shampoo just for brunettes like me I almost jumped for joy. Yay, to my hair no longer looking like I accidentally dumped baby powder in it. Well, that happiness did not last after the first use. The spray is brown and it does blend into my hair, but the finger I used to spray the shampoo with turned brown as well. The formula for this is also hard to brush into my hair, it made my hair look dull and feel nasty.

I was so disappointed, running my hairs through my hair I would get what looks like dirt all over my hands and my hair felt so stiff and powdery. I think maybe I should not have gotten the brunette spray. I will give this another try, perhaps just the original one, as I don’t want to completely write this brand off.

Grace & Stella Argan Oil Shampoo + Conditioner

2017-12-17 11.21.11

I want to use more cruelty free products and in searching for new shampoo and conditioner and I discovered Grace & Stella Co.

2017-12-17 11.24.55

They have Argan Oil, Jojoba oil, Macadamia Seed Oil, Shea Butter, and Aloe. Which Promotes hair growth, Healing, Moisture and hydration, reduce flakes, and promotes shine.

I have got to say that it does almost all it states it does. I have not used it enough to see if my hair has grown any faster than it usually has, but my hair is shiny and soft. It seems to be repairing the damage I did earlier. The down side is that my hair seems to be holding a lot more static than it normally does. It bothers me a little, this of course won’t be a problem once winter passes. This is an annoyance none the less.

Maui Moisture Bamboo Fibers Shampoo and Conditioner

Like I said in my Not Your Mother’s Pump for joy review that I’ve really been trying new things with my hair. I picked up this Shampoo and Conditioner because The weather has really done a number on my hair. Split ends seemed like it was in my very near future. This was Cruelty free and vegan friendly so I immediately wanted to try it.

I will say one thing it packs so much moisture into my hair. The shampoo is thick and has the texture of slime so that was a bit off putting at first. also it was really hard to spread and it produces very minimal suds so I feel like I use a lot. The conditioner is much more creamier but it flies out of the bottle and I get a lot in my hands (and floor)

My hair has been much more moisturized, maybe too much honestly, it feels thicker and much more healthy than it normally does. The smell is also amazing, almost like guava. This would be a great shampoo and conditioner for winter, but seems too much for spring and summer. maybe I’ll store it away until then.

Not Your Mother’s Plump for joy hair thickener

I’ve always had trouble with flat hair, but I’ve never really done anything about it. Now I am starting to be more adventurous. I’m 30 I can’t be afraid to take risks. When I saw this at my local drugstore I decided to try it out and I have not been lead astray by Not Your Mother’s products before. Sadly this didn’t really do anything, besides it smelling good and being easy to blend into my hair it still fell flat. I tried it while my hair was dry and damp and it was still the same results either way. I keep using it though, I guess I’m hoping that it will some how mysteriously work?

 

I am so disappointed, you were suppose to be my go to hair products!!!

 

Okay maybe I’m being a little harsh, and it was not really that expensive so I am not too hung up about it. I just want my hair to have some volume and doesn’t look like I’ve been wearing a beanie all day.

Not Your Mother’s Clean Freak Dry Shampoo

I seem to be using dry shampoo more and more these days, as I just can’t seem to get my hair straight. One day it’s limp and oily, the next day full of fly-aways and dryness. I don’t wash my hair everyday to try to preserve it’s life, so sometimes that limp and oiliness makes me look unwashed. That’s where dry shampoo comes in.

Not Your Mother’s is on of my favorite drugstore hair brands. Not only is it inexpensive but cruelty-free as well, they even have recently come out with a line of more natural products that I cannot wait to test out. Considering how much I love using Not Your Mother’s products I decided to try out the dry shampoo.

The Clean Freak Dry shampoo boasts instant results of Absorption of excess oils, No residue and a Matte finish. I can tell you that 2 out 3 of these claims are right. IT does immediately absorb the oil in my hair and leaves it looking I didn’t wash it the day before, The matte finish as well can be claimed as try as my hair is not overly shiny. However it did leave a white residue in my hair after I used it, which I need to immediately brush out so as I don’t look like I am going grey.

Not Your Mother’s dry shampoo also gives a slight volume boost to my hair so that it does not fall limp, this lasts about half the day but I am assuming it’s because I tend to play with my hair more than I should making it fall flat. This is unscented, which I don’t know if I like but at the same time I don’t know what I would like it to smell like considering.

They also have a tapioca dry shampoo that I really want to try out to see how that works. This is only $7.00 which I love because I have seen half this size run for double that with other brands.
