The first product I’m going to review (from the box of products I received from Influenster) is the dry shampoo from Not Your Mother’s.
About Not Your Mother’s Clean Freak….
Absorbs excess oils
Cleans without water
Light matte finish
I like the packaging of ALL Not Your Mother’s hair products, and Clean Freak
is just as eye-appealing. I love how the can is mostly white but with the grassy look at the top it really adds something unique. I just think the packaging looks so high end. 🙂 As I said in my post yesterday, this product was the one I was the most excited to try…so, of course, it’s the one I’m going to review on here first. 🙂
The Product & Application…
The nozzle on this can is really perfect — I love how it sprays out and really gives you a strong stream, but not too much product, in my opinion. It’s very misty and, when I used it, it didn’t leave any white residue in my hair. Which I was very thankful for! 🙂 The smell for this product is really hard to put a finger on…(I’m really bad at naming scents)…but it’s kind of close to an air freshener scent….but not the kind of air freshener I like. Haha! 😛 It is pretty strong when you first spray it, but it goes away very quickly and doesn’t linger in your hair at all. So not a big deal for me. I sprayed it at my (very oily) roots and after letting it sit for a minute, I used a brush to make sure it was dispersed throughout my hair. The oily-ness was instantly gone! It gave my hair a very matte, fresh look that I want when I have 2 or 3-day old hair.
The best part about this dry shampoo was that it didn’t make my hair feel all cakey/dirty. Usually, with the dry shampoos I’ve used in the past, after I use them my hair feels really heavy, cakey, and…just all around yucky. It’ll looks clean, but it’ll feel dirty. But! With Not Your Mother’s Clean Freak
, it doesn’t do that! Even now — a day after I used the dry shampoo in my hair — my hair still feels great. Not really oily, either! This is a great bonus for me, since I personally don’t like washing my hair every time I shower — it’s healthier to let your hair several days before washing. So, all that said, the fact that this Clean Freak
not only made my hair look clean, but feel clean to, made me fall in love with this dry shampoo!
It would have to be the smell. While it isn’t bad…it is pretty weird when you are using the stuff on your hair. I am really thankful that it doesn’t linger more than a minute or two. With this kind of smell, though, it might not bother some people. It might just be a quirk of mine. But even though it doesn’t smell the greatest, I still plan to use this bottle up and purchase this for my use in the future. The smell doesn’t last long and the results of this product is awesome and does last long. 🙂
If you haven’t guess — after reading all my remarks above — I really, really like this product and highly recommend it! The smell is the only slight draw-back to this product — if Not Your Mother’s fixed that, this would be an instant holy grail of mine. 🙂 In comparison with my previous experiences using other dry shampoos, Not Your Mother’s Clean Freak
is the best I’ve ever used!
