Aussie Miracle Dry Shampoo “Aussome Volume”, £2.29, Boots
Before I dip into this review, a bit of background on my hair! It’s super fine but there’s a heck of a lot of it. For some reason this means it gets kinda greasy within a day and the only thing that really solves it is a good shampoo wash. I’ve been trying to do the whole day old hair/dry shampoo trick the past year and I feel like I’ve gone through the ringer when it comes to dry shampoo and having tried out most brands from Batiste to Treseme to Charles Worthington. I’ve not never really found one I felt I could stick with so far.
I spotted Aussie’s new Miracle Dry Shampoo (in Aussome – trololol – Volume) in Boots on an introductory offer. Aussie are certainly no newbies to the dry shampoo or hair product market, in fact their hair products are pretty legendary in the blogsphere, so decided to give it a go.
The first thing I noticed about this is it’s scent. It’s quite a strong, most likely the jojoba seed extract, which I personally do prefer this to other dry shampoos I’ve tried and reminds me a bit of my Treseme hairspray. I’ve seen a few other reviewers that aren’t keen on it though, so I think it’s a matter of preference.
The next thing I picked up on is the lack of white residue I usually get with a lot of dry shampoo brands. This is a bug bear of mine, as I have very dark brown/black hair, so I was pretty happy that this was barely visible in my roots! This is also means I’ve found this great to use just on a day to day basis to pump up the volume on my hair a bit, without the worry of that horrible shade of grey I get from other brands.
The lasting power of the shampoo is also impressive and, for me, proved a great little way to refresh my hair and give it a little bit of lift.
All in all, this is a great dry shampoo, especially if you’re after something a little more long-lasting and are after some volume!
Have any of you guys tried any of the Aussie range?
