Umberto Giannini Dry Shampoo

Thursday, 17 May 2012
I've only really discovered the wonders of dry shampoo in the last few years, but now I don't think I could live without it!  As my hair is bleached it's pretty dry so I only wash it every second day, so on the days it's unwashed I tend to give it a spray with some dry shampoo to give it a bit of lift (and to get rid of any grease at the roots).  Normally I use everyones favourite, Batiste, but I saw this recently when I was in Boots on the lookout for 3 for 2's and thought I'd give it a go.

Umberto Giannini Glam Hair Morning After Dry Shampoo (nice catchy and easy to remember product name folks) claims to "revive and refresh lank, lifeless hair and give it that second day feeling (eh?) that keeps hair perky and poised all day".  As with all dry shampoos, you just need to spray at the roots and through the lengths (holding the can about 6 inches away from your head), massage in and you're good to go!

At £5.61 * it's a bit pricier than Batiste (but looks a bit cheaper than some other alternatives like Toni & Guy) so I was hoping it would have a little something extra, but I was left a bit disappointed.  Yes it freshens up your hair, yes it gives you a bit of volume at the roots, and no it doesn't leave any nasty powdery residue but all in all it's still just a run of the mill dry shampoo. I'm not really a fan of the smell either, it's got that same "dry shampoo" smell to it that they all have (what is that?) with slightly perfumed undertones but isn't any nicer than any of the Batiste shampoos.  

I don't want to sound overly negative though as it's not a bad product, it's just that I don't feel like the price matches the quality unfortunately.

*It's currently on offer at Boots though for £3.74
