If you have dark hair and a penchant for trying to extend the life of your blowout like I do, listen up. We all know about the magical powers of dry shampoo — it can revive flat strands and freshen up greasy hair — but for us dark-haired folks, it can come at the expense of unwanted white residue and a powdery finish.
When L’Oréal Paris dropped the EverPure Sulfate Free Tinted Dry Shampoo for Brown Hair, a dry shampoo made for those with brown and black hair, I knew I had to try it out. I soon learned what makes this tinted dry shampoo for brunettes so special — keep reading to learn more and to see how you can include it in your own hair care routine.
What is the EverPure Tinted Dry Shampoo for Brown Hair?
As the name suggests, the L’Oréal Paris EverPure Sulfate-Free Tinted Dry Shampoo for Brown Hair is a dry shampoo specially formulated to refresh black and brown hair. The unique formula contains rice starch, which is an ingredient known to absorb sweat, oil and odor from hair, in addition to pure pigments, which give the starch a darker color. These pigments make it easier for the dry shampoo to blend into black and brown colored hair, instead of leaving behind an annoyingly obvious white residue.
How to Use the EverPure Tinted Dry Shampoo for Brown Hair
When you get your hands on a bottle, be sure to shake it up to dispense the pigments. The more you shake it, the better. Then, hold it about six to eight inches away from dry hair, focusing on your money pieces (aka your face framing strands) and the crown of your head. Give the dry shampoo about 30 seconds to dry before running your hands through your hair, massaging the product into your roots. From there, feel free to style how you wish.
My Review of the EverPure Tinted Dry Shampoo for Brown Hair
Immediately after spraying the dry shampoo into my limp, greasy hair, I noticed two things. First, my flat roots sprung back to life almost instantly. Despite the fact that I hadn’t washed my hair in almost two days, my roots looked voluminous and clean. I especially loved that I didn’t have to excessively tousle my hair around to get rid of unwanted white powder. If I didn’t tell you, you wouldn’t know that I skipped a shampoo session and opted for dry shampoo instead.
The second thing I noticed was the scent. In addition to absorbing oil and sweat, the dry shampoo also eliminates the presence of odor with a subtly sweet fragrance. With notes of fresh almond blossom and creamy musk, it makes it hard not to want to catch a whiff of your own hair.
