Etude House OMG! Dry Shampoo

Etude House OMG! Dry Shampoo (50 ml) PHP 448 
Living in a tropical country; I have to deal with oily skin, sweating and an occasionally greasy scalp all year round. Aside from that I try to workout almost everyday, which results in me washing my hair everyday too of course. It's pretty much impossible for my roots to not get oily if I skip washing my hair for a day. I know most people use dry shampoos mainly because they only wash their hair occasionally since washing the hair everyday isn't good, but don't you feel like it's a waste if you have your hair blow dried or curled (or even just a good hair day) then have to wash it the following morning? Well I do! If it's still clean and still looks good, then why not? I needed a dry shampoo for me to use before I head out then just wash my hair as soon as I get home. 

I first heard of dry shampoos from "beauty gurus" on YouTube about a year ago. I was completely new to the idea and thought it's a great product for everyone to own. Some of the popular brands that I came across are Batiste, Klorane, Psssssst, and more; which all weren't available in the Philippines yet. During my visit to Canada at the beginning of 2012, I got myself the Lush No Drought dry shampoo which comes in powder form and is packaged in a bottle which was a hassle until I eventually stopped using it. Just recently, I found out that Etude House and Tony Moly both have their own versions of dry shampoo, and that Digital Traincase distributes the Klorane Dry Shampoo!

My first choice from those three dry shampoos would have to be Klorane. Just because I've heard lots of people rave about this product claiming that it's their favorite dry shampoo, it's supposed to be gentle on the scalp, feel light, absorb oil well and leave no residue. Unfortunately it was sold out in Digital Traincase and I didn't know if they would restock, so I purchased the Etude House OMG! Dry Shampoo. 

The first thing I noticed about this product is that it has a pretty strong sweet and girly scent that sticks to the hair. This may bother some people so I recommend you get a whiff from the tester before purchasing, as for me, I actually like the floral and fruity smell of this. It doesn't completely look or feel like how it would if I washed my hair with shampoo, but it definitely did a pretty good job in absorbing the oil on my scalp and roots for a dry shampoo and compared to Lush's No Drought. Remember that dry shampoos aren't meant to replace your regular shampoo, it's job is to just absorb excess oil and even add a bit of volume. When hair gets greasy it tends to weigh down the roots and make the hair lay flat, this product really helped in adding back volume to my hair. It comes in an aerosol spray which makes the application a lot easier than dry shampoos in powder form. Another thing I like about this is that it doesn't leave any residue and doesn't make my hair gray, which is important for someone with black hair like me. It's also small enough to carry around in a bag or for traveling. The only downside is that it doesn't last very long, only lasting up to about five to ten uses, depending on how much you use.
Would I repurchase this? I think it's a great dry shampoo and does the job, although I'm still curious about all the hype on the Klorane Dry Shampoo. I found out last night that Digital Traincase restocked and I'm planning to pay them a visit tomorrow to get my hands on it before it runs out again!

What's your favorite dry shampoo?

  5. Aww this is the most adorable bottle of dry shampoo I've ever seen! I have yet to find my favorite dry shampoo... the Oribe dry texturizing spray works pretty well as a dry shampoo, but it's so expensive!
