Polishes - Sally Hansen - MEGA STRENGTH Nail Polish

I bought this in Be Iconic, which is a lavender-blue shade. This went on thin and a little streaky on the first coat. The second coat was better, the 3rd was best. Not quite totally smooth and opaque, though, and the color wasn’t as great as it looks in the bottle. The wear isn’t terrible. I paid about $5 at Walmart for this.

Conditioner - Clairol - Herbal Essences Body Envy Volumizing Conditioner

I use this with the matching shampoo, and my hair ends up clean, shiny and detangled. This is one of the ones that I think has been improved over the years. I don’t need that much of this conditioner, either (APL/ armpit length hair). Sometimes I use a lemon rinse to help with chelating because of my well water, but other than that, I don’t really have to use too much of anything extra when I use …Read more

Herbal Essences is one of those brands that tends to tweak their formulas slightly every few years, which can be a good or bad thing, depending on whether you prefer the changes or not. This one to me has been improved over the years. I find that it makes my fine, wavy hair clean, but it doesn’t dry it out. Along with the matching conditioner, my hair is left clean and shiny; not weighed down …Read more

Polishes - Sally Hansen - Xtreme Wear Nail Polish - Blue Blitz

This looks like it’s a pale blue nail polish with pink iridescent, when looking at it in the bottle. However, it goes on super sheer and streaky, and even after 3 coats, it’s still sheer and streaky. The color also doesn’t look like it does in the bottle, it almost has a gray-ish cast in with the blue and pink (and again, sheer & streaky). I ended up exchanging it for a different color, I …Read more

I bought this in light/ medium and it’s way too orange & dark for my fair skin. Also, I should have checked cosdna before buying, the second ingredient gets a “4” on the potential for acne scale (0-5 potential rating). I’m mixing it with unscented sunscreen to make it more sheer, and using it up on the backs of my hands/ arms. It does have a light and fluid texture, so if the color matches …Read more

Dry Shampoo - Klorane - Dry Shampoo with Oat Milk - Original and Tinted Formulas

This sprays white; you have to hold your hand far away and move it side to side quickly to help with this. You’re supposed to leave it on for 2 minutes, then brush out. The white blends in after that, but it leaves my brown hair feeling dull and weighed down. Also, don’t expect a nice, fresh scent like the regular oat milk shampoo- this smells like hairspray. It was a waste of $20.

This dry shampoo from Sally’s is from a brand called Blend, which I never heard of before. It comes in this pretty light blue can for a little over $10. I was hesitant to try it because I couldn’t find anything about it online, but took a chance. It’s translucent and light, doesn’t tangle or make my hair matted at the roots. It has a beachy ocean/ sea salt type of a scent. Very strongly scented …Read more

Dry Shampoo - Hask - Charcoal with Citrus Purifying Dry Shampoo

5.0

6 months ago

This is one of the first dry shampoos that I tried recently (last time was probably Psssst in the 80s), and it’s probably my favorite. It sprays finely, doesn’t leave a white cast on my brown hair (I don’t hold the can too close to my scalp, though), and it has a nice, fresh citrusy smell. I use it mostly to texturize, so I don’t know how heavy duty it is on oil. This one is in the $8-$10 range …Read more

I remember this dry shampoo from the 80s/90s, when it sat on the bottom shelf at Walgreens, and only people who were bedridden knew about it and would use such a thing.

The dry shampoo market has really exploded, though. I feel like dry shampoo is to present day what hairspray was to the 80s. Although I’m a frequent washer (I think it’s mechanical damage that damages hair- rough towel …

I have this in Magic Ponch Shell. The square bottle is cute, I do like the packaging. The color in the bottle looks like a bright peach with gold shimmer. It applies more like a neutral peach, no where near as bright as in the bottle, and the shimmer is barely noticeable on the nails. The first coat is streaky, 2nd coat makes it look better, 3 is best, but I don’t think it looks totally opaque …Read more
