Lush No Drought Dry Shampoo

Lush No Drought Dry Shampoo - £6.50


Dry Shampoo's have moved on from the days of putting baby powder in your roots and now traditionally come in a spray can, as much as these are convenient, I always seem to use them up faster than I'd like to. I'm a fan of the original Batiste Dry Shampoo and think their range is brilliant but I'm not a lover of Dry Shampoo in the various scents on offer apart from anything that smells clean or fresh. As I've mentioned before I once ruined my hair with bleach so have now grown out my hair and try my best to look after my hair as best as possible, unfortunately, this includes not washing my hair as much as I used to. 

With my stop abusing your hair policy Dry Shampoo is now a staple and while on the look out for a new one I came across No Drought. What initially drew me in is the scent, it's made with Grapefruit and Lime oil which gives it it's lovely fragrance of citrus - perfect. To me, there is nothing worse than having slightly greasy roots and then putting something tropical on top. This may sound silly as  I know a ton of people love different scents but to me it tends to stick around all day and becomes a bit 'slickly'. 

I find No Drought to be a brilliant dry shampoo, it does everything it's suppose to and leaves a lovely clean smell that doesn't overpower. It has a good lasting power and because my hair is a light brown it leaves it looking as it's just been washed and blow dried. As this product last such a long time (115g) I think the price isn't overly damaging to the bank, for the amount of time I've had this I would have probably gone through at least 2 spray cans and it's hardly made a dent in the powder. The downside? The mess. If you remember the days of baby powder you'll remember it was a bit of a messy task. As this is a powder, it's harder to control than a normal can so can take a bit of getting used to. My advice is to use it in the bathroom over the sink or bath to make things a little easier. Also, you need to brush through your hair and give it a quick check to avoid any powdery patches, making sure you don't overload your hair will help avoid this but after a few uses you learn to judge how much you need. I will certainly re purchase this but at the moment, I think I have enough for a long time.

    1. This is great for grease, Lau.. As your hair is pretty dark you'd have to give it a good brush through after though xx

  4. I've been looking for a new brand of dry shampoo to try as I'm not overly keen on the smell of bastiste either. Will maybe give this one a go instead but I do get put off a bit by the messy side of it as you mentioned. xx

  6. Very balanced review - I tried this but didn't love it thanks to the mess factor you mention. My favourite is the Batiste Tropical - love the scent!

  7. this seems awesome (apart from the mess!) I feel the same with the cans like they just go after a few sprays! But the old mess of talc/powder is so annoying if you already got dressed! xx

    1. I know, right?! You think you have loads left when it's actually enough just to do your fringe aha. Gah, this happened to me yesterday - you'd think I would have used it over the sink after writing this review aha, hurr xx
