I think it's pretty safe to say dry shampoo is a must-have beauty item for, well, anyone with hair. It's just so convenient, since as we all know, washing hair is just more work. All that said, I do remember a time before dry shampoo was readily available (I know, dark times...) and when there really weren't many options at the drugstore level. Clearly, those days are behind us and it seems every brand has something to offer. I take that as a personal challenge, and am always up to try the newest offerings. Are they all winners though...

That of course is the million dollar question, right? I was swayed to try the L'Oreal Magic Shampoo Invisible Dry Shampoo initially just because it's a dry shampoo, but also because it's available in five scents- Fresh Crush, Rose Tonic, Vegetal Boost, Sweet Fusion & Tropical Splash. I know, every so often I'm easily intrigued.

When it comes right down to it, the Magic Shampoo really isn't anything ground breaking when it comes to a dry shampoo formula, other than the fact that it is indeed truly invisible using rice-powder as it's main absorbing agent. My hair (and especially roots) are dark, so any dustiness or white cast would be completely noticeable. This leaves no trace whatsoever, which is great, but not the most important thing for me. Honestly, I can deal with having to brush out a little powdery residue if my dry shampoo leaves my hair feeling great.

So, aside from being invisible, this dry shampoo is just whatever. Sorry, L'Oreal. I find it does refresh hair, but if you're trying to actually avoid washing your hair (or just your dirty roots, which is usually my concern) this isn't your best bet. It's a little light on the cleansing front for hair that is actually on the oily side. It does work very well for second day, pretty clean, just needs some oomph and texture type hair though. The other miss with this formula is that the overwhelming chemical cloud you end up with when using it. I have the Sweet Fusion scent (apple & peony) Tropical Splash (fruity tropical) and they smell pretty fabulous eventually, it's just that you end up in a rather noxious, cough inducing situation while applying.

Overall, I give these a pass. The chemical scent is pretty off-putting, and to be completely honest, there are so many formulas I just enjoy using more. Mainly this one, which I would gladly purchase by the case. So, what do you think? Have you tried this, have a fave dry shampoo I should try?
