Product Review: Not Your Mother's Clean Freak Refreshing Dry Shampoo

I have mentioned before that I'm in need of a new dry shampoo.
I finished my Suave Dry Shampoo a long time ago and ever since I've been doing some research on a new good quality dry shampoo.

It's not healthy to wash your hair everyday so I usually turn to dry shampoo to keep the oiliness to a minimum.
I also use it on days when I wake up late and I barely have enough time to shower.


Not Your Mother's Clean Freak Refreshing Dry Shampoo
Net Wt. 7 oz (198 g)

I know you're busy keeping up with that social life! So don't waste precious time in the bathroom, just use CLEAN FREAK. Get that perfect hair (and the perfect guy!) before all the other girls. Expect more room on your social calendar because this salon formula dry shampoo will have you and your hair ready for a night out on the town.


Application: Spray generously on roots and throughout hair. Brush through to diffuse powder and watch it absorb any excess oils. Style as desired and enjoy your newly freshened hair.


Clean Freak quickly absorbs almost all of the oil from your unwashed hair.
It feels very light and fresh on my roots.
During application, it will make your hair turn grey but as you brush through it, it will quickly disappear.
It will give your hair a lite matte finish and it leaves it shiny and super smooth.
It doesn't leave any white residue like other dry shampoos.


It has a spray pump, so it's really easy to use.
All you have to do is spray everywhere and you're done.
It also has a white cap that keeps it tightly shut and prevents any leakage or vaporization.


I hope you guys found this review very helpful. This is my newest favorite product!

What dry shampoo are you guys currently using?

Hair brings one's self-image into focus; it is vanity's proving ground. Hair is terribly personal, a tangle of mysterious prejudices.

  1. I did find it very very helpful! I've never tried dry shampoo before but i really do want to try it. Maybe i'll get this one since it sounds really good. =)

    --Olivia :)

  2. I have to try this out! I'm not typically a dry shampooer, because after this summer I got into the nasty habit of shampooing every night. Now my hair kind of needs that, you know?

    Prom - I am sooooo excited to see what dress you pick!!!!

  3. Dry Shampoo! Invention of a genius right there - I love dry shampoo, I am a big fan of Batiste dry shampoo in tropical, or if I need a pick me up the one that has sparkles in it.

    Do you have Batiste? What would your review of that be? x

  4. Very cool blog!

    it would be a pleasure and a great help for me if you could answer my blogger-interview about the relation of fashion, blogs and journalism. It's anonym, but you can also name your blog if u like. It's to find on my blog!

    Thank you in forward,

  5. Hi - love your blog xxx I usually use baptiste but have also heard good things about the tresemme dry shampoo xx

  6. nice blog

  7. I've never owned dry shampoo, so I just use baby powder! Works the same IMO! :) I just pour a little into my hands and distribute it throughout my hair, concentrating on the oilier areas. :) So ya.


  8. Love you blog :) I use baby powder instead of a dry shampoo, my roots end up greasy very quickly, so I just put the baby powder in my hands and apply it then to my hair!.. That also helps with the volume on the roots!

    <3, Mimi

  19. I never heard of dry shampoo before =) now I feel like a hillbilly haha. I have to wash my hair everyday because I got used to it, although I know it's not healthy...Maybe I should try this out.

    xoxo <3

  20. I only new about Batiste, so this is very good for me! Great review <3<3

  21. That sounds like a good product to try! I usually use khlorane and that usually does the trick, but trying new products out are always exciting!

  22. I really want to try dry shampoo. My hair is very unruly though...great review :)
    I liked the Hunger games first book. I haven't read the other books. We will see how the movie turns out.

  23. @Kumiko: It's for when your hair starts to get oily. Haha. I shower a lot too!

    @Antee: Awh, thank you so so so much!

    @Belle: Really?! That's actually practical.

    @Mimi: :D

    @Dazy: Most definitely!

    @LoveSushiandFashion: Thank you!

    @LsModeOperandi: Oh, absolutely!

    @Isabelle: Omg, you have to read all of the book. I'm on the 3rd one now and I don't want it to end!!!

  24. I love dry shampoo! I want to try this one now. I currently use the Oscar Blandi dry shampoo and it works amazingly. Thanks for the comment on our blog, we now follow you!(:

    Olivia from the Glamour Girls

  25. @Olivia: I've tried the Oscar Blandi one. It does work great. I just hate that it leaves your hair with a bit of a white residue. :/

  26. this is a great idea! definitely a time saver. where do you purchase Not Your Mother's Dry Shampoo?


  27. Thanks for this post, I definitely want to try it!

    xoxo, H

  28. 1.first of all, I want to apologize for not answering to all your lovely comments, I feel terrible about it :(
    2. Yes, the bag is large, but you should see another one I've got, it's almost as big as a suitcase :D
    3. Really interesting post...Dry shampoos are not actually 'popular' in Greece, so I never had the chance to try one of them! I think that it must be really useful, when you're in a hurry :) lots of kisses

  29. That sounds really good - I totally need something to keep my hair looking fresh between washes!

  30. I LOVE dry shampoo. Such a life saver when you're rushed. Great review

  31. I use Oscar Blandi dry shampoo - it has a nice smell and the powder seems to soak up my hair oil nicely. I love using it at the end of a long day when I still need to go out at night but don't have time to stop home and shower :)

    Thanks for reviewing this! I think a spray might be easier to use than my powder - will have to check it out!

  32. Ive never tried dry shampoo but it sounds great. Im not too sure if we have this particular product in Australia =(
    Anyway I have posted your interview with you on my blog, check it out.

    Take care miss

    -Mia xoxo

  33. I rarely use dry shampoos just because I get obsessed with my hair and I usually shower a lot. I know, that's so bad! That's why I need to get my hands on a dry shampoo. I will definitley look into this. :)

    Lots of love, B

  34. I haven't try this one nor own any dry shampoo, but I am tempted to get myself one. I have been recommended several products, but I didn't feel I necessarily need it.

    Thanks for reviewing this! I'll be thinking about owning a dry shampoo, it seems like it would be handy!
