I’ve been using my “No Drought” dry shampoo from LUSH for a couple of months now but haven’t gotten around to posting a review on it. I’ve written a lot about different dry shampoos in the past (including my all time favourite dry shampoo brand, Batiste) but it’s been a while since I’ve used a non-spray dry shampoo. In my experience, they are great at absorbing oil but don’t give as much “lift” as aerosol alternatives. No Drought is the best of both worlds, plus I cannot believe how long it’s lasted.
Seriously, it’s been three months and I’ve used maybe 1/6th of the 130-gram bottle. I feel like sometimes I can go through an entire can of Batiste in less than two weeks so that’s pretty freaking amazing.
No Drought is LUSH Cosmetics’ only dry shampoo and is, like the rest of their products, handmade and 100% natural. It’s also vegan with its main ingredient being a form of cornstarch. One of my favourite things about the product is its grapefruit and lime scent. It’s fresh and light and adds just the right amount of natural fragrance without being overpowering.
One thing I’ll call out before going into how to use it is that it’s really only good for light coloured hair. In fact, even though my hair is platinum I still find that I really have to massage the product to keep my scalp/hair line looking paper white. But, if you can invest a few extra moments to really work the product into your hair, it’s worth it.
To apply, you’ve got two options. You can either puff the product directly onto the root sections of your hair by squeezing the bottle or put some into the palms of your hands and then work the product through your hair yourself. Either way, I’d recommend brushing your hair afterwards to help distribute the product more evenly and give it a little extra polish.
I’ve been using this dry shampoo to get me from one wash to the next, but it’s also fantastic for travel…especially if you like to travel strictly with a carry-on bag like me. Aerosols are a no-no in carry-on baggage, my friends!
Let me know if you’ve tried No Drought or if you have another fave dry shampoo. Would love to check it out!
Until next time,
