Macadamia Volumizing Dry Shampoo


Macadamia Volumizing Dry Shampoo Beauty Review

Macadamia Volumizing Dry Shampoo* £19.50

Now I don't know about you but I certainly don't have the time to wash my hair every single day. Okay so maybe I do have the time but with hair as long as mine is at the moment (I do have a hairdresser's appointment booked for tomorrow to finally go for the chop though), I don't necessarily want to go through the hassle of washing it, blow drying it and styling it on a daily basis. And I know that even if I did have the motivation to do it, my hair would be incredibly unmanageable and candy floss-ish. So basically, washing my hair on a daily basis doesn't even factor into the equation for me. This is when dry shampoo becomes a bit of a necessity.

Macadamia's Volumizing Dry Shampoo is unlike any other dry shampoo product that I have tried before. There's none of that trademark dry shampoo white powder to be found when you start spraying this product. Macadamia's sprays on clear. Normally I'm left with white roots when I pick up a bottle of dry shampoo from the drugstore and as a redhead I definitely can't get away with that look to be honest. Instead of using the conventional powders that many brands employ, this dry shampoo works by using starch to absorb oil and grease.

Now the £19.50 price tag might be rather off-putting for many but unlike the drugstore alternatives this hasn't run out after about a month of use. Normally I can go through cans of dry shampoo pretty quickly depending on how often I use it but this is still impressively full. This is because you honestly only need a little amount of product to achieve a lot. I think I'm becoming increasingly aware that the more luxury/high-end products on the market tend to focus on this much more so than the affordable drug-store brands. Applying any more is not only a waste of product but it can also leave the hair feeling wet and a little crunchy if you apply far too much. It also does add volume. It simultaneously adds volume whilst getting rid of any grease or excess oil. One word; genius!

After falling in love with this product I now really want to explore more of the Macadamia range. Do you have any recommendations of products that really work for you? And if you have any reviews of these products then please feel free to leave a comment below with the link to that review and I will be sure to check that out.

Do you like the sound of this dry shampoo-come-voluminising product? Would you ever consider paying over the £10 mark for such a product? And if you are a fan of using dry shampoos, which other brands would you recommend trying?

  2. As Georgia commented, you often find this in TK Maxx, I personally like coloured dry shampoos.

    1. I'm glad to hear that Kat! :) I'm not a huge fan of coloured dry shampoos just for the fact that none really match my hair colour all too well at all! :(

  3. Ugh I hate it when dry shampoos leave that white powder! I've only found one other that doesn't (Sexy Hair), so I'm totally down to try this one as well!

  4. I love the Macadamia intensive masks, really hydrating. I wouldn't buy this just because I only use dry shampoos for festivals, my hair has kind of adapted to never being washed so it never gets greasy!

  6. Interesting review! Actually sounds very good for a higher end dry shampoo. I am quite tempted to give it a go now as I am a lover of dry shampoo!

  7. I've never spent a lot on a dry shampoo, I tend to stick to batiste. But I get through it so quick so after reading this I'm pretty tempted! Lovely blog :)

  10. I'm not sure I could bring myself to pay almost £20 for a dry shampoo, but I do love the other Macadamia Oil products so I'm really tempted to give it a chance :)

    1. I know, the price tag is a little off putting but I think if you have a good look around you could find it for a bit cheaper! :)

  11. Great review although it just seems pricey but the lasting longer thing is a selling point as I literally go through Batiste cans like water. I've tried translucent dry shampoos such as the VO5 one before but I always think they leave my hair shiny oily (yak) interesting that this uses starch though xx
