TREsemme Fresh Start Dry Shampoo: Review

Even though I work as a professional hair blogger, it struck me as odd that I haven't shared anything about hair care on my blog. It's high time I do! And for my first hair post, I am going to share with you an amazing product that I've tried. I have talked in depth about dry shampoo and its benefits (not here though) and was curious to give it a try. For those who do not know what dry shampoo is, it is basically a product that comes in either powder or spray form. You apply it to your scalp to absorb excess oil or provide some texture to your hair to refresh and revive it even without washing it with water. This explains why hair styling experts recommend it as an alternative when you want to skip daily washing on your hair. I won't even begin to lecture about the hazards of washing your hair on a daily basis, we'll save that for another post. 

The main ingredients for TREsemme Fresh Start Dry Shampoo are mineral clay and citrus. According to the product ad, it is made with professional quality. When I did a research online, though, I found there are a lot of negative reviews on this product. But I still decided to give it a try. 

I used the product after my workout - since I know that sweat coming into contact with hair is almost always disastrous. I've had issues with my hair being oily and stubborn to style especially after a session at the gym (yes, even when I put it up into a bun or ponytail). Hence, I decided to buy this dry shampoo to cope with this problem. 

I shook the can vigorously and sprayed it onto my hair near the roots. I make sure to lift every section of hair that I want to apply the product on to also get some lift to it. About 4-5 spritzes did it for me since I concentrated on those areas that are prone to becoming greasy. 

Initially, I noticed that there is a freshness fragrance to it - I would probably attribute that to the citrus in the formula. What I like most about the scent though is that it is not overpowering. Also, I noticed almost immediately that my hair is not as greasy as it used to be (especially after a workout). I expected it to be an immediate effect on the hair after application but I was surprised that it remained that way several hours after using the product. Indeed, my hair was not limp at all and I never had to brush it as often as I used to to create volume. I felt that there is a natural bounce to my hair, which I love, of course. 

I will continue to use this product to see if I get the same result. But for now, I can truly say that I loved the result and what it did to my hair. I cannot give it a glowing thumbs up yet but I guess it also depends on your hair type. There are several types of dry shampoo in the market and it is all about finding the right one to suit your hair type. 

Which dry shampoo are you using? If you have any recommendations, I'd love to hear about them in the comments section!



  1. I'm guilty of washing my hair every single day, because it's so prone to being greasy! I'll have to give dry shampoo a go & see if it works as well for me :)

  4. Tresemme dry shampoo is one of my favorite products! It works so great without any white residue!

  5. I'm so glad to have found someone who doesn't believe in washing their hair every day! It does all sorts of damage and really, I'm far too lazy to want to wash my hair and dry it every day. XD

    I usually use whatever is on the shelf of the store when I go to buy it -- the tresemme one is good, but I find it leaves a residue on my hair for some reason -- maybe because my hair is dark. :P Not Your Mother's is a great line with an impressively residue-less dry shampoo! It's expensive, though.

    by the way, thanks for stopping by to comment on my blog! :D


  6. I love Tresemme! I have never tried their dry shampoo though! Definitely will now!
