The BEST Dry Shampoo! | Pret-a-Powder Review

Having dark hair is sometimes the best and worst thing. Don't get me wrong, I love the color of my hair, but it can be frustrating finding a dry shampoo that works with it. And, of course, my hair tends to get oily pretty quickly since I have a lot of hair, but the strands are fine. It's strange because I have really dry skin, but my hair is the complete opposite. I used to wash my hair every single day, which is really bad, so I had to train it one summer to be able to wash it every other day, even with working out every morning. It's gotten a lot better, but still gets a little oily on the days I don't wash it.

The amount of dry shampoos I've tried is ridiculous; I've tried both salon and drugstore brands, and nothing really seems to make a difference and just ends up making my scalp itchy. I was watching one of Ingrid Nilsen's videos and she mentioned the Bumble and Bumble Pret-a-Powder, and for some reason it still took me a couple of months to buy it. So, fast forward a couple of months, and I was in line at Sephora and saw this product in the "Beauty to go" section and decided to buy it. The small size is only around $15 so it's not too bad! Here are my thoughts on the product:


When I first tried this product it literally looked like I had dumped a bunch of translucent powder on my hair, and I was worried it wouldn't work itself in at all. After a couple of seconds of massaging my scalp and brushing my hair, the powder started to disappear, along with my oily roots! I was impressed with how quickly it blended in with my hair, and it didn't make my roots look gray at all.

The smell was also really refreshing, and made my hair smell like I had just washed it, which is a huge plus when your hair is feeling a little limp and blah. It isn't too fragrant, and I noticed that the smell lasted the whole day, and until the next morning when I washed my hair. I am a huge fan of nice smelling hair products, I don't know what it is, but if something works well but doesn't smell the best I'll try and find something else that both works and smells nice. Call it one of my quirks, but I realize that it's a bit ridiculous.


As well as being a dry shampoo, this powder also adds a lot of texture and volume to your hair, which is just what you want when it's the second day and your hair is feeling a bit limp. I honestly will add the powder to my hair even on the same day I wash it if I feel like I need a little bit more texture. This really helps when I curl my hair and want the roots to have some volume since the strands are a bit weighed down from hair spray, and the fact that my hair tends to fall flat the minute I start touching and fixing it. My hair is able to hold its volume a lot better when I add this to the roots, and it's also great when I want to do a messy hairstyle and need some extra texture!

Overall, I'm super satisfied with this product and have finally found a dry shampoo that works with my hair! I won't be switching anytime soon, and I can even get away with washing my hair every three days if I don't feel like washing it one day. I definitely recommend trying this product, especially just the travel size since it isn't too much of a commitment. It actually lasts for a long time, too, which is great! I'm still on this little bottle and it's been about two months now.
