Dry Shampoo Battle: Dry or Spray

Dry shampoo is one of the most powerful players in my beauty arsinal. If i'm feeling lazy about doing my hair, BOOM, dry shampoo to the rescue! There are two main types of dry shampoo on the market: spray and loose powder. I compared the two types of dry shampoo by one brand, Ocsar Blandi, to note the pros and cons of each and help you lovely kittens to decide which one is right for you. Obviously there are many brands on the market to choose from. I happen to have two varieties of the same brand to level the playing field.

POWDER:
Oscar Blandi, Pronto Dry Shampoo
Availability: Sephora
Price: 1.0 oz. $11;  2.5 oz. $19

Pros:
Small packaging easily travels, doesn't take up lots of space in bathroom/travel bag (TSA approved)
Scented lemongrass, very clean and fresh smelling
Apply with hands for spot concentration
Keeps hair fresh looking for a long time
Adds slight bit of volume
Works well on medium-fine textured hair

Cons:
Can be extremely messy if you're not careful with application
I don't trust the lid while traveling (always put in a small ziploc bag)
Scent faids from lemongrass to powdery smell after a while
Can clump up and become gritty if too much is applied
May appear ashy in color on darker colored hair

 


SPRAY:
Oscar Blandi, Pronto Invisable Volumizing Dry Shampoo Spray
Availability: Sephora
Price: 1.4 oz $11;  5 oz. $23

Pros:
Spray application makes it extremely easy to use
Scent lasts for a long time (also a con if you don't like the smell)
Small size is great for on-the-go spot cleaning
Doesn't leave gritty texture 
Adds volume to roots (subltle, not like backcombing would)

Cons:
Does not travel well, aersols are prohibited by the TSA (don't quote me, I don't work for them)
If ordering from Sephora, will ship via ground transportation (takes longer)
Scent is very fruity smelling, almost overpowering (smells like life savors) 
Must shake well before application or product will not be evenly distributed
Doesn't last as long as powder in hair

 



There are my comparisons. For my hair (fine textured, but heavy, naturally wavy, mink-blonde/brown in color) I prefer the powder dry shampoo. Which dry shampoos have you tried? Any favs? Do tell!
