Let’s Talk About The Aveda Dry Shampoo:

Are you looking for a dry shampoo to freshen up your second-day styles without drying your hair out? Unlike other leading brands, Aveda’s dry shampoo is naturally derived, alcohol-free, and all in all brilliant. 

You can conquer grease-free hairstyles and stretch the gap between wash days with your healthier hair BFF. This non-aerosol uses the same brilliant formula as before, but it is better for you and your hair. 

Every girl deserves a dry shampoo that won’t leave her hair dry and brittle and dry it out. It’s meant to absorb the oils, not dry the hair out entirely. Absorbing excess oils, impurities, and sweat with powerful plant powders with zero chemicals. 

Aveda is a healthy hair magnet, and I just can’t get enough. 

If you’re a dry shampoo junkie like myself, then you won’t be able to get enough of this incredible product; on lazy days, just spritz a bit of this dry shampoo along your hairline, working through the layers for ultimate volume. 

Power through the week and banish oils with 99% naturally derived ingredients, including montmorillonite clay and tapioca starch which will absorb excess oils and boost volume within the hair. 

There’s no wonder as to why this is a best seller.

Let’s kickstart the review with everything you need to know about this dry shampoo, how it works and why going natural is always going to beat other brands that are full of harsh chemicals. Is Aveda the way to go? Let’s find out!

How The Aveda Dry Shampoo Works:

Just like all dry shampoos, the Shampowder dry shampoo removes excess oil, impurities, and sweat, but unlike other brands, it is powered by powerful plant powders, which instantly adds volumes and texture to refresh second and third-day styles. 

The Montmorillonite Clay absorbs excess oils on the scalp and hair, and the Tapioca Starch instantly boosts volume and keeps hair in place. Pretty cool, right? Well, let’s talk about how these ingredients work in more detail. 

Montmorillonite Clay is an excellent ingredient for reviving dull roots and soaking up extra oil. It is a mudlike substance derived from volcanic ash and is often found in the skincare industry, but using it on hair is a great way to add moisture and remove toxins. 

Tapioca Starch starch is like talc; it reduces the heavy and greasy feeling of oils, esters, and waxes. It works wonders for absorbing oils at the root and refreshing the scalp naturally. It absorbs more oil than talc, and it is a great green go-to in natural products like the Aveda Shampowder. 

Aveda has used the same best-selling formula and beloved aroma with an updated name, new look, and environmentally friendly non-aerosol packaging, with a formula that is 99% naturally derived. 

Aveda has found a great alternative to banishing oily roots and extending the gap between wash day thats all-natural and vegan!

Who’s It For?

The Shampowder is really for anyone, but those with oily roots will especially love this one. It is a magic powder that extends wash day, one-two or even three more days. It is perfect for fine, flat hair in need of a bit of boost on second-day hair. 

The ingredients refresh and give hair a bit of a boost; it lifts the roots and makes second-day hair appear like first-day hair. It gives hair that luscious volume with zero dryness. I usually hate when dry shampoo is in my hair, but now I’ve made the switch, I am hooked.


What We Think Of The Aveda Dry Shampoo At Beautists:

First things first, I think we need to talk about the bottle itself– think baby powder! Since Aveda is a sustainable brand, you can say goodbye to aerosol for good; this dry shampoo puffs out into a mist when squeezing it. 

You can either apply to your hands or directly to your head, but if you’re as clumsy as I am, then applying to your hands first is better; just don’t use too much at a time, so you have control. It may feel alien at first, but the alcohol-free formula is worth it. 

For first-timers, you might find it a tad awkward, so to avoid applying too much, apply to your hands first as otherwise, you’ll be rubbing your roots for what feels like forever, especially if you have dark hair as it is easy to over-apply. 

But once you’ve got around to applying this dry shampoo, then the rest is revolutionary. 

For starters, I love how much more voluminous your hair is after one look, coming from someone who has naturally oily hair, the second day after washing, it is always limp, lifeless, and flat. This dry shampoo changed my life, and instead of drying my hair out, it nourished them. My roots were oily, and ends were dry, and now my roots are fresh, and my ends are shiny. 

It is truly a game-changer. 

I love the Shampowder scent; it takes the same aromas from the Shampure, leaving your hair smelling as fresh as wash day– it’ll be our little secret that in reality, you haven’t washed it in five days. 

It does a great job at absorbing oil and “hiding” dirt for a natural formula. Many of us are often skeptical of how well it will do the job if it is branded with “natural,” but there are no quality compromises here. 

Despite the awkwardness of the bottle, I think Aveda is onto something here with this amazing dry shampoo. My only pet peeve is that it is so easy to overuse, and they don’t have a bigger size, so you have to be so careful not to waste it. 

But all in all, this product gets the green light from me.
