As most of you know Klorane is my go to dry shampoo. I used their regular Oat Milk Dry Shampoo for a long time and then tried the Nettle Infused for dark hair and it has become my new favorite. Now Klorane has released a new non-aerosol dry shampoo.
That’s right. I know you are asking yourself how does that work? I asked the same thing. Luckily Klorane sent over a care package so I could try it. Actually they sent over several types of dry shampoo and far too many so I am hosting a giveaway. This link will take you to the giveaway details and I will be announcing the results on Thursday May 6th, if all goes according to plan.
But for this test I set aside my favorite dry shampoo for dark hair and tried out the non-aerosol version. According to the website…

Now usually I kind of limit the details from the page, but I had to add in the how to use section since at first I wasn’t entirely certain how to use a non-aerosol dry shampoo. Turns out, it is super easy. You shake, you turn the top to show the nozzle and then you squeeze. A puff of product comes out. You then move the bottle around your head squeezing each time you want to dispense more product.
At first I was a little surprised because I have been using the dry shampoo for dark hair. It shows a little gray when first applied so that is what I have become accustomed to seeing. This was white when it came out. It made me a little nervous at first. But I let it sit the two minutes needed and then brushed it out. There was no white residue left behind and no white cast at all.
One of my favorite ways to use dry shampoo is as a quick refresh for my bangs so that is what the picture shows. For me, my bangs tend to look greasier faster than the rest of my hair so they tend to need a bit of a touch up more.
In these photos you can see the white powder clearly against the dark hair, but then see how easily it brushes out, leaving clean looking hair behind.
I was very impressed. The only thing I would say to watch out for is that after you shake it, when you first turn the nozzle there is a puff of powder that sort of comes out. It mostly hit my hand, and when it did hit anything it was easy to clean up. It is a tiny dribble but just something to note.
Personally I am impressed with the way the product works and I absolutely love that it is in a bottle that is fully recyclable. That is always exciting to see on a product and quite frankly something that I haven’t seen before. If you’d like to try it for yourself, I am putting it in the giveaway so be sure to enter or visit Klorane to check it out.
I really like the way this product works with my hair and I absolutely adore the eco friendly aspects. I still am drawn more to the dark hair formula though. I have my fingers crossed that they will come out with other formulas in this eco friendly container. For me, that would just about be perfection.
