Review: Balea dry shampoo

      When I first heard about dry shampoos, after wondering 'what on earth is that?' and got to see it all around beauty blogs, I got super curious to try such a product, especially because my hair does get oily pretty fast and I thought it can be a real help, if it really is effective. So while looking around in DM (one of the most addictive stores with large variety and good prices), I got this dry shampoo by Balea:


I've seen various shapes in which you can find a dry shampoo, this one is in a spray form. 
Once applied on your hair, it looks like powder sugar, this one is white, but you can find these in colour version as well, according to your hair color (ex. black, brown, blonde, red). 

What a dry shampoo does: Keeps the hair clean-looking for a longer time, absorbs the excessive oil without having to wash your hair.
How to use: Split your hair in a few sections and spray each part where you need it most, pretty close to the roots but not on the scalp directly (because, as I said, it looks like powder sugar and you don't want to end up looking like a donut if some of it gets stuck on your scalp..) Leave it in for a few minutes, then comb/ brush it out really well.

Results in my case: It does have some effect, of course my hair didn't look 'as good as new', but it works as a quick solution when I'm in a hurry. It made my hair a bit thick, but eliminated the greasy look pretty well. Don't expect your hair to look like when you just washed it, it doesn't really have much shine after 'powdering it up'. What I didn't like is that it gives me a bit of dandruff, that usually goes away only about after washing it about 2 times. Thus, I only use this product in case of emergency.


Would I buy it again? Well yes, it is something I am not totally satisfied with, but it can come in handy sometimes. Though maybe I would try another dry shampoo next time...any recommendations?




Note! Reviews contain my personal honest opinion about the product.

    1. Oh thanks for the advice! I don't really want to give a definite verdict regarding dry shampoos without trying others, so I'll give those a chance :*

  2. So basically, it's like the old school trick of sprinkling baby powder on your hair when it's greasy and you're in a hurry, only more expensive and in a pretty container? :P

    1. Yes, pretty much! :)) Ok, spray containers are much better for a clumbsy person like me, esp. when I am in a hurry and all shaking, I once tried talc powder, had precision problems on the head, then I managed to spill it over my clothes as well. Needless to say, I was already dressed wearing black clothes ^^ hahah!

  3. Balea is my fav, it's good product for the price :) Also Bumble&Bumble is extremly good (if you find a place to buy it please let me know :D). Batiste is also a good option, but personally I hate the smell ;)

    Am scris acu mai mult timp un review despre Batiste si Bumble aici, inainte sa descopar Balea: http://www.fabs.ro/reviews/cel-mai-bun-sampon-uscat-bumble-bumble-vs-batiste-vs-pudra-de-talc/.

    Sper sa iti fie util ;)

    1. Thanks for the advice!! :D Btw I like your page and quote a lot! (btw poate-s eu chioara dar pot sa dau follow pe undeva pe-acolo? Ai informatii utile :D)

      Am citit acum review-ul, si mie imi place Balea in general, insa acest produs imi face matreata din pacate...dar il voi folosi pana il termin oricum, pentru ca ma si ajuta in acelasi timp.

      Mersi mult, te mai astept! :*
