One of the many traditions of Chinese New Year (8th February this year) is to not wash your hair for the first few days of the New Year. I don’t really follow this tradition but for those who do, I have a really fun gadget that may help you get through those gruesome hair-washing forbidden days. And for the rest of us, it is still a super handy hair product to have in your makeup bag.
So the secret weapon I am going to talk about today is Ambiance Dry Shampoo. I have received a Black one and a No Tint one to review.
Unlike a lot of the generic aerosol dry-shampoo, these ones from Ambiance are in the form of makeup brushes. Think of those blushes with built-in applicators, the Ambiance Dry Shampoo is exactly like those – only this time it’s for cleaning your hair and covering the regrowth of your roots!
The tinted dry shampoo comes in four colours: blonde, brunette, red, and black. Since I have redyed my hair, I can’t really show you how the Black one works. But I have tried it on my roots before and it turned my light brown roots into black in a second! It also gives your hair extra volume, perfect for an on-the-go fix.
Application is easy – just a little shake to dispense the dry shampoo on to the brush and apply where you need it, then run your fingertips though your roots and hair like you normally do with dry shampoo, voilà!
Although the No Tint one doesn’t add as much volume as the Black one, it still carries a pleasant scent as its coloured counterpart, leaving your hair smelling fresh and clean. Gone are the days that fragranced hair products make your hair stink when they are mixed with the excess oil in your hair!
What I really like about this product is its formula. It is dermatologist tested and is free from alcohol and butane. That being said, I am not saying to replace washing your hair completely with dry shampoo. But it is a great product to have in the makeup bag as you can take it on a flight and do a quick touch up before landing, or even just a swirl before a business meeting or a date.
All the Ambiance Dry Shampoo are set at RRP $34.95 (14g) each and they are all refillable. The top up ones are set at RRP $39.95 for 28g each, which is a double of the original size – another reason to love this range! These products can be found at Priceline, Hair House Warehouse, Price Attack, Go Vita, Healthy Life and leading hair and beauty salons Australia wide or online at www.ambianceaustralia.com.au.
*Thanks Ambiance Australia for providing the product samples, but the opinions is mine as always.
