Does Moroccanoil make perfume? If not, it should. The scent of Moroccanoil products is undeniably intoxicating and exactly what I look for in a dry shampoo. Which is why I waited with bated breath for the day when it would release one. Once I got my hands on it, I was not disappointed—it smells just as divine as everything else Moroccanoil. But there’s more to a good dry shampoo than the sweet smell, and it decided to take things a step further. The dry shampoo comes in dark and light tones. And the light-tones version features subtle violet undertones to protect blond colour and fight brassiness. I appreciate a good purple shampoo and perhaps even a violet deep-conditioning mask, but beyond that I don’t have a lot of faith in toning products. So while I can’t speak to the product’s ability to “protect my blond,” I’m sure a little extra violet in my hair products can’t hurt. What I can speak to is the ultra-fine, buildup-free mist Moroccanoil’s Dry Shampoo ($26) delivers. I’m picky about my dry shampoos, and this one makes my hair feel clean—the formula’s not too wet or sticky. Plus, I feel like it gives me a little boost of volume. Here’s my one qualm: The nozzle is super-hard to press down. Maybe I got a faulty can, but it almost takes two hands for me to press down hard enough for any product to come out. But I continue to use it, and if anything, maybe I’ve gotten stronger because of it.
Have you ever tried a toning dry shampoo?
