TRESemme FreshStart Dry Shampoo

As much as I would like to have two hours to get ready before I go out, the reality is I have about 30 minutes on a good day. So with few precious minutes, hair washing is out of the question. At the risk of sounding gross, yes, I do sometimes leave the house with dirty hair. I am okay with that fact. I have two kids and I blog all day! Dry shampoo is definitely my friend, and I have tried many.

Recently, TRESemme FreshStart dry shampoo showed up in one of the goody bags I received at an event. And yesterday, in haste and desperation, I had to use it. It’s not bad for a dry shampoo. It does the job without making my very black hair appear whitish with residue, and my hair did appear to be less greasy. It also added volume – one of the benefits of dry shampoos – but my hair did go limp after a few hours. So even though you don’t see residue from this dry shampoo, my big problem is that you do, in fact, end up with hair that’s pretty caked down and feels rather gunky to the touch.

It does smell great, which is reason enough to use dry shampoo. The last thing we want to do is gross people out with smelly hair. But while the scent is nice, unfortunately, the blast of spray is bit gag-inducing. I think I gave my dog asthma with the plume of fume it caused! So you see, there are positives (you can’t beat the price!) followed by several “buts”. My final verdict: in a pinch, sure, it’s fine, but there are better options out there (I prefer the Neil George Refresh dry shampoo).

On for $5.99.

  1. Dry shampoo is such a must for me when I can’t wash my hair. I’ve never tried this brand or a spray type but I do use the Oscar Blandi dry shampoo with a squirt nozzle and it’s pretty easy to control.

    1. I’ve tried Oscar Blandi and the problem for me is the color, my black hair turns gray. This at least won’t discolor my hair but like I said, my biggest complaint is the residue it leaves.

  2. i have used this one and it works. my only complaint is that the nozzle clogs and it seems to run out much faster than other aerosol dry shampoos. I prefer Klorane aerosol and the oscar biandi squirt

  3. I really like dry shampoo, it looks very nice, I’m happy to visit again to see your blog because it’s very good indeed and very nice, thank you for all regards, body piercing classes dry shampoo I really hope to be your friends.
