As a result of dry, damaged hair and several articles telling me that daily washing is a big no-no, my hair washing days have been at an all time low. I wait as long as humanly possible before washing my hair properly, which means dry shampoo is a huge MUST for me because, surprisingly, I don’t like looking like a human greaseball when I go out.
Enter: HASK Argan Dry Shampoo*.
Now, I actually have another dry shampoo—Dove’s Refresh and Care Volume dry shampoo. I got it mainly because it was cheap and promised to add volume for my flat hair. In comparing the two, it’s easy to see why I prefer the HASK dry shampoo.
Right away, I noticed the difference in application. The spray on the HASK bottle is more concentrated than Dove’s, so a) you don’t need as much to cover the same area, and b) you get more product on the area you need, making it more effective.
Now, I will say this does leave a light, white cast when first sprayed. It says in the directions to wait 30 seconds and massage it in, and it’s essential that you do so there’s nothing leftover in your hair. Now that I have black (and I do mean black) roots, I’m more cautious about dry shampoos leaving a white cast.
You could also rectify this by simply spraying further from your head, but I don’t like to go too far because you don’t get any of the product on your head either. Which, of course we don’t want, because this product does work pretty well. A few seconds spray was all I needed against the greasier part of my head before it looked fresh (so fresh and so clean, clean).
I’ve never had a problem with dry shampoo making my hair feel dirtier than before, or gritty, etc. any of that stuff, and that continues with my use of this HASK dry shampoo.
Another thing I also want to mention is the scent. This particular bottle (meaning the Argan, as there are four different kinds: Argan, Coconut, Charcoal Purifying and Chia Seed) is supposed to have a citrus-y scent, though it leans more towards smelling like orangesicles to me. Which is to say, just a tad sweeter than I had anticipated.
Price-wise, it’s extremely affordable at $8, especially taking into consideration the large size of 6.5 oz. Seriously, it’s a tall bottle. All the different dry shampoos are available at Ulta as well, all for the same price.
Overall, I would definitely get this again, although I’d try another type like the Chia Seed, mostly because ‘chia seed’ and ‘dry shampoo’ aren’t words I would consider putting in the same sentence.
