Dry Shampoo Paste, to me that title makes no sense. How can a paste be a dry shampoo? Isn’t dry shampoo usually a powder? Isn’t paste for your teeth or for gluing things? Is there any way that this stuff could work? Which is exactly why I wanted to try it because I just had to know.
The first time I saw the R+Co Dry Shampoo Paste was when my mom sent me a photo of it in a magazine she read on a plane. Momma QuinnFace has been coming through with the product recs like crazy lately.
So when I finally did try it here is what I thought:
It’s a paste, but not what I expected. It’s thick. Like insanely thick. I would honestly describe it more as a clay than a paste.
See what I mean? Just to be clear though, that is way more on my nail than the amount you need to use, and I mean more by about 400x.
A very very little goes a long way. Using too much will just make a mess.
THE APPLICATION PROCESS:
Taking a tiny bit on your finger and rubbing it into the spots where you need a little refreshment or a little lift is all it takes.
As a dry shampoo it work’s OK. Just about average, nothing amazing. As a texturizer/ root lifter it works amazing. It adds more volume than any other dry shampoo I own or have tried in the past.
WHY I LOVE IT:
The reason I really love it, is because you get the benefits of a dry shampoo or texturizer, but with ninja-like precision. You only have to use it where you absolutely need it, and it won’t spread around the way a spray or powder would. So instead of having that dry shampoo feeling all through your hair, you get it where you need it and the rest keeps it’s flowy soft texture. That makes it ideal for using on freshly washed hair because you still get to enjoy that clean feeling, ju know what I mean?
If you’re just looking for a dry shampoo then this one is decent, but I wouldn’t go out of my way for it. But if you’re looking for a way to add volume selectively to fresh hair, or even second day hair then this is perfection. So if you suffer with flat hair syndrome like I do, this just might be something you need in your hair product arsenal.
