Looks Clean, Feels Like Mousse
I've always wanted to try a dry shamppo, so when I received the Oscar Blandi Pronto Invisible Volumizing Dry Shampoo Spray, I was quite excited to test it and let you know what I thought. Well... my reaction might be best described as "mixed". I used the dry shampoo in place of a regular one in the morning, already planning to tie my hair back into a ponytail, just in case this didn't work. My hair is dark brown, so when it does get oily, it makes a clear difference in its appearance. As it happens, the Oscar Blandi dry shampoo spray has an unusual effect on my hair.
The directions explain that you hold the can 6to 8 inches away from your head, then spray for good coverage, especially along the scalp and roots of your hair. Close your eyes. Trust me. Once the air is clear, open your eyes and, according to the instructions, let the product dry, then shake out the "excess" product. I didn't see excess product at all, even though I went through nearly half of a 1.4-ounce can. As I brushed out my hair, I realized that it did not feel oily at all, so yes, it will either blot up or hide accumulated oils in your hair. However, it also felt and looked like I'd used mousse or a similar styling product, which I definitely did not want on my hair.
The light and pleasant scent, the lack of residue, and the fairly good results bring this review up to 3 stars, but the added sensation that there was something layered over my hair was unpleasant. If you want a dry shampoo that will make your hair look clean AND add a light styling product effect at the same time, then this is a great choice. If you'd rather use a dry shampoo that leaves your hair feeling completely clean, you may be disappointed with this one.
