As I have long hair which tends to get greasy rather fast I use dry shampoo sprays a lot as it always give me that extra day. Perfect for when you are in a rush for work or lunch date etc.
Bristows Dry Shampoo - Tropical Paradise 150ml:
'Bristows Dry Shampoo refreshes hair in between washes without the need for water. Quick and easy to use, this spray revitalises dull and lifeless hair while adding volume and bounce. Leaves hair feeling clean and fresh with exotic fragrance'.
Washing my hair can really be a massive chore, so I always use dry shampoo. Some work extremely well and other head for the bin. My favourite brand has always been Batiste and so far never had a problem, but as I saw a new product I just had to give it a go.
It is mostly my fringe I do as that gets greasy more or the less day after it has been washed. I can understand why as it will be resting on make up, my job can been rather busy so then I can get sweaty. Plus another side to it, washing your hair to many times washes away the natural oils and over time can damage hair.
I colour my hair a lot so damage control is crucial for me! This works the same as any other dry shampoo; you just spray it over the area or whole head. Massage it in to the hair, wait a few minutes and brush it out to reveal nice refreshed wash that looks washed again.
I personally think this does a good job, it will last me the whole evening or the whole morning. Sadly not the full day but caters for what I need. However the Batiste dry shampoo will last me the full day but for a bit more in price.
The scent for this dry shampoo is Tropical Paradise and I must admit I've grown rather fond of the fragrance. It has a lovely sweet coconut aroma which lingers on my hair for some time before I stop noticing it.
When first sprayed it can be somewhat over powering, so I recommend you do this near an open window. As I'm asthmatic this can sometimes set me off if not near an open window, or spray in one room and walk away into another so you're not breathing it in.
As I went to purchase a new dry shampoo, this really did stand out with its bright pink colour. The labeling is rather simple but still noticeable and I like how it isn't over crowed. One of the things this product claims is to give hair volume and bounce. In my opinion it does deliver on its promise but will only last me half the day.
I have very thick and long hair, so I personally think this would work much better on someone whom has thinner hair for the lasting effects. However still a good little product with a nice scent and one that I will more than likely purchase again if still at 99p.
Price and Availability:
I purchased mine from Bodycare in the Merry Hill shopping centre (West midlands) they only have two types from what I could see the Tropical and the normal which I purchased both as they were only 99p each.
This is a good dry shampoo but the Batiste range does have this pretty much beat. Still for 99p the results were pretty good and I would recommend this to other, more so if you have thin hair. The fragrance is lovely and refreshing.
Four out of five stars.
Thank you for reading.
