Have Oily Hair? You will Love TRESemme Dry Shampoo

If you have oily hair then you will love TRESemme Dry Shampoo. If you have regular or dry hair then not so much. But, for those of your who have oily hair you know what I am talking about.

This is a powdery spray that soaks up oils in your hair and brushes out dirt and grime. This is not to be confused with the TRESemme Foam shampoo, which got bad reviews online.

With oily hair you have to wash it daily or it looks like this.

Excuse my oily hair but I had to do this before and after pictures to show you that the TreSemme Dry Shampoo for oily hair really works.

review of tresemme freshstart dry shampoo

It takes forever to wash my hair, dry it and style it. I am not one of those women who can just wash and dry their hair and go. I have to style it or it looks limp. I have oily hair and also fine hair to boot. My hair doesn’t get dirty after one day of washing, just oily in certain areas, so the second day I have to start all over again and wash, dry and style my hair. My hair only gets oily around the outer edges of my face because, you guessed it, I have oily skin. So, the rest of my hair is clean and no oily, just these areas.

I saw the TRESemme Fresh Start dry shampoo on the shelf at the Commissary and decided to give it a try.

  1. Shake the can vigorously.
  2. Spray it lightly over the oily areas of your hair you want to freshen up holding the spray can 4 to 6 inches from your hair.
  3. Leave on for 1 to 2 minutes.
  4. Brush it out and style as normal.

I have to say that I was skeptical that it would do anything for my oily hair but it works like a charm. The TRESemme Fresh Start dry shampoo removed the oiliness and actually made my hair fluffier. I went throughout the day without even noticing any oiliness. I am happy with the results and will continue to use this product.

Note: It is not designed to clean your hair, only make it looks less oily so you don’t have to wash it the second day. I wouldn’t use this product for an extended period of time but then again, it is not designed for that. It is designed to spruce up you hair in between washing.

  1. Thanks for this. I accidentally bought the foam and it’s terrible. I’ll get the spray next time.
