Unwash Dry Cleanser - Review

Unwash Dry Cleanser

Hello Lovelies

I am pretty sure you'll know by know, if you're a regular reader of my blog, that I suffer from very oily hair, in fact the saying "grease ball" is something I would use to describe my hair most of the time and it certainly would be if I didn't follow a hair care routine. 

My hair became oily after the birth of my youngest daughter and up until then, I would describe my hair as normal, it was fine but I had a lot of it and it wasn't oily, wasn't dry, just normal. I had my youngest daughter and the within a week my hair had transformed into it's grease ball status and has stayed the same ever since. I must have tried every oily hair shampoo and build up shampoo on the market and I am still trying products. 

One product I use a lot of and has to be my holy grail hair product, is dry shampoo. Dry shampoo is my lifesaver and after trying possibly every single brand on the market bar a couple, I had settled on a brand I liked and worked really well for me. 

Recently I tried out some hair products from the brand Unwash (see that blogpost here) I tried out their Unwash Try Me Intro Travel Kit, and a couple of weeks ago I received another product from Unwash, their Dry Cleanser. 

Unwash Dry Cleanser

The Unwash Dry Cleanser (£19.95) absorbs excess oils without leaving any residue and is suitable for all hair types. It doesn't contain any harsh chemicals, but contains Volcanic Ash which is a unique ingredient able to absorb the oils at the roots, it also contains Vitamin E and Panthenol to condition and strengthen the hair and Plant Extract to help nurture the hair from bounce, body and shine. 

The Dry Cleanser comes in a aerosol can which is green in colour with black illustration and lettering. The spray nozzle is white in colour.

I have found a hair care routine that is working for me at the moment, and I have been able to incorporate the Dry Cleanser into that routine nicely. If you would like a blog post about my hair care routine please let me know. 

Using The Dry Cleanser

The best way to use the Dry Cleanser is to shake the can well, then hold the can around 6 to 8 inches away from the hair focusing on the roots. Then allow the Dry Cleanser to dry and then distribute through the hair, this is done by rubbing the cleanser into my roots with fingers and then brushing my hair through and then styling as normal, which usually means straightening. 

I use the Dry Cleanser when my hair is on day two, which is the day after my hair has been washed. My hair is always washed in a morning, I will have my hair washed and dried off with the hairdryer and then mostly straightened with my hair straighteners, sometimes my hair is put up either into a ponytail or a messy bun and sometimes my daughter will plait the front of my hair to keep it out of my way. The day after, which is day two if I want to wear my hair down again, I use the Dry Cleanser. 

Once I have used the Dry Cleanser, my hair isn't left looking or feeling powdery at all and my hair doesn't look white or chalky, it feels lovely and soft and clean and not like it has product in it. My hair stays oil free all day and I am able to wear my hair up on day three if I use some more of the Dry Cleanser. 

Overall Thoughts

I really like the Dry Cleanser, it has a nice scent that isn't overpowering, my hair doesn't feel chalky or look powdery after using the cleanser and I am able to wear my hair down the day after washing, and it looks lovely and fresh and not full of product. And then to be able to wear it up the day after that if I wanted to is brilliant and means I could wash my hair every 3 days if I wanted to, which is a rarity for me. 

The Dry Cleanser also gives my hair some volume meaning when I use it and have my hair up, my hair looks full at the front and the root giving me a more voluminous look and if I wear my hair down it can be back combed slightly at the root and have a great lift too. 

It's a great dry shampoo and does exactly what it says on the tin and I'm really pleased with the results I get when I use it, another great product from Unwash. 

If you would like to try the Unwash Dry Cleanser, you can find it on the HQ Hair website here and the rest of the Unwash products can be found on the website here
