I am a huge Tints of Nature fan, I honestly love their products and have been using them consistently for a while now (read my other review of their hair dye, shampoo and conditioner here). So when I was offered the chance to try out their new dry shampoo I jumped at the opportunity!
I’ve been doing a fair bit of travelling recently as I’ve been researching the best vegan-friendly locations for my book and series of guidebooks and one of the things I found annoying was the fact that my usual dry shampoo was too big to carry on as hand luggage. Due to the fact I stay in places for only 2 or 3 nights, it seemed silly to pay for hold luggage just so I could take one item with me, so I went without and got used to having to wash my hair daily (boo).
Enter Tints of Nature’s Dry Shampoo. Not only is it travel-sized friendly (yes, you heard it – carry this baby on to the plane with no worries!) but it is also much more environmentally-friendly that what you may have been using before. Most dry shampoos use an aerosol, that you spray onto your hair. If you’re anything like me you usually end up choking as you descend into a cloud of white. However, Tints of Nature’s offering uses an eco-pump instead. You literally ‘pump’ the product directly onto you hair, wait a minute and then rub it in.
You can also move the nozzle around to ensure you target exactly where you mean to – which means no more white stuff on your black jumper or tee!
I admit, I thought it would take a little getting used to, and it is a bit different to the traditional dry shampooing method, but after the first use it became like second nature to me and I much prefer this way!
The scent is lovely, yet not too strong or overpowering. It is more floral than artificially sweet or sickly and Mr Green V complimented me on my nice-smelling hair when I started using it (I wonder what it smelt like before…hummus?!).
Each bottle contains 15g of product, and the whole item only weighs 37g, so it is super light and portable. I literally have it with me in my handbag when I know I’m out for most of the day (#oilyhairproblems) and love knowing it isn’t going to weigh my bag down. Each bottle contains a whopping 100 washes worth of product, so you needn’t worry about running out too quickly! It is perfect for travelling, whether you are jet setting, camping or going on a mini-break and don’t want to keep washing your hair every day.
It really does get rid of oil and grease from the hair straight away, and although it is a white powder that does need rubbing in, especially if like me you have dark hair, it is easy to blend and won’t make it look like your hair is grey which I’ve found happens with other versions.
Yes, at £11.99 it might be a little more expensive than some of the high street options, but the fact that the ingredients are 99.5% natural and organic, it has an eco-nozzle rather than an aerosol, lasts for the equivalent of 100 washes and it is travel-sized make it great value for money in my opinion.
