When it comes to hair care, more and more people are starting to realize that part of treating their hair right includes skipping a day or two between shampoos. Between hair coloring and highlights, flat irons, curling irons and blow drying, the reality is that most peoples hair takes a lot of damage. Skipping a shampoo now and then may help extend some of your styling processes and hold off a little more damage. Yet, when it comes to dry shampoo, what’s a vegan gal to do?
While there are a couple of cruelty free dry shampoos on the market, it’s actually pretty hard to find a vegan dry shampoo (meaning that it’s not tested on animals and doesn’t contain any animal ingredients). It’s also really difficult to find a dry shampoo that doesn’t contain some pretty harsh sounding chemicals. I’ve seen propane listed in the ingredients of more than one. While those dry shampoo’s may do an amazing job, there is no way that I’m comfortable putting such harsh chemicals on my hair. For quite a while I was using DIY Vegan Dry Shampoo and liking the results. When the folks at Lush offered to send me their vegan dry shampoo – No Drought, I couldn’t wait to try it!
The ingredients are simple to read and understand – Corn Oil (Zea mays), Magnesium Carbonate, Talc, Perfume, Grapefruit Oil (Citrus paradisi), Lime Oil (Citrus aurantifolia), Citral, Geraniol, Limonene and Linalool. I also love that Lush offers an explanation for what each one is. It’s refreshing to see such a popular product make of ingredients that don’t seem scary or harsh.
The directions for how to use No Drought Vegan Dry Shampoo are just as simple. Massage the powder into your scalp and hair, then shake out or brush if you have longer hair.
Personally, I loved this dry shampoo. It works really great to help refresh my hair and give me an extra day in between washes. I love that I understand the ingredients that are in it. The citrus scents are a nice boost. Not only does it make your hair smell good, but it gives you a little energy boost in the early mornings. It also gives my hair a little extra volume – something that I will never argue with. The dry shampoo comes in regular shampoo packaging which was honestly a little messy to get used to. Thankfully you can twist the top off and put back any excess shampoo that may end up in your hands.
Lush definitely lived up to customer demands with No Drought Vegan Dry Shampoo. It’s a great product!! I plan on buying it again in the future and would suggest it to anyone, vegan or not, who is looking for a more natural dry shampoo.
Have you tried No Drought yet? What were your thoughts?
