Okay, so I’ve been a bit delayed on writing these posts regarding a few Drybar products that were sent to me. Obviously it takes a while to use the product (I prefer to be at least halfway done a bottle of styling products, shampoo, etc, before I give my recommendations, or not). So here I am, taking photos of a few products that I received multiple months ago. I wanted to give them a fair trial, because honestly, some of the products I didn’t like from the get-go and I wanted to see if that would change. See? Not everything is rosey and have rave reviews. I will tell you how it is. Let’s get to the stuff I’m not pleased with first, to end it all on a good note, shall we?
Drybar Texas Tea Volumizing Shampoo ($30 CDN/ $24 USD) If there is anyone that needs volume in her hair, it’s me. 100% me. I was really excited to try this out, and I ended up really not liking it. I’m using it up, as you can see – it’s been the only shampoo in our shower for months, just so I can get the full effect. It does nothing for my hair, and definitely doesn’t volumize it. I’ve had a lot better drugstore shampoos lather in my hair and create more volume than this. Unfortunately I do not recommend you buy it.
Drybar Texas Tea Volumizing Conditioner ($30 CDN/ $24 USD)Â I’m not sure why this is still in the shower because I tend to use a leave-in conditioner after my shower. As soon as I put this in my hair, no matter how long I let it sit in my hair, when I was it out it feels like I simply conditioned with water. Absolutely no moisture properties or “conditioner feels” in my hair. I’m using it up, because I do not like to waste. But man, I’m not fond of this at all. Dang!
Drybar Southern Belle Volumizing MousseÂ ($25 CDN/ $26 USD) Okay, I think I’m on my 2nd or 3rd can of mousse. It lasts forever (I’m talking 3-5 months for me) since I do not wash my hair on an everyday basis, nor do I apply this in my hair every time I wash it. I love it. It’s a mousse, and it does what it’s supposed to. I will keep buying this product (it was sent to me once, and I bought it twice with my own money).
Drybar Detox Dry Shampoo ($29 CDN/ $23 USD) Â I picked a can of this as soon as I moved to California. I had been using it for about a year before I started working with DryBar, and obviously if I bought it before I worked with them, I’m a fan. Plus, their cute packaging helps. I really do love it. However, I do not wait until my hair is greasy or on second day before applying it all over my hair. I haven’t tried their Dry Shampoo for brunettes, but I heard it was really dark coming out of the can.
Drybar Detox Dry Conditioner ($23 USD. I don’t think it’s available in Canada yet) The newest product of them all as I received it about a month or so ago. I’m still on the fence about this, because while I do love it – I have done without it for so long that I’m not sure if I would re-buy, or if I’m in love with it. It gives a lot of moisture back into my ends, fluffs them up, smells great, but I have some mixed feelings about it and I’m not sure why.
Drybar Mr. Incredible The Ultimate Leave-In Conditioner ($32.50 CDN/ $26 USD) Okay. Holy grail right here. I use this every.single.time I get out of the shower. It’s an aerosol spray which I use completely saturate the ends of my hair. It feels amazing and helps my hair retain moisture. Plus I love how long it’s lasting me! Like I mentioned, I don’t wash my hair everyday (I wash it every 3-4 days), so it’s lasting me a long time and the bottle itself is huge!
I think it’s only fair to say that these are obviously my own opinions and perhaps you guys do love the products that I’m not a fan of, and vice versa! Some products were sent for review as I stated above, but I’ve repurchased my favourite products over-and-over.
Have you used Drybar products before? Thoughts?Â
