TRESemmé FreshStart Dry Shampoo and TRESemmé FreshStart Waterless Foam Shampoo
TRESemmé FreshStart Dry Shampoo for oily/straight to normal hair and TRESemmé FreshStart Waterless Foam Shampoo for dry/curly hair are used to clean hair without water anytime. It claims to remove oil, odor, and maintain hair health by allowing you to shampoo your hair less frequently.
Dry shampoos were created a few years ago as an alternative to shampooing your hair with water. Benefits of shampooing your hair without water include saving time, convenience and accessibility, and preserving the health of your hair by shampooing less often and not needing to use heat to style your hair. While there are many brands of dry shampoo on the market, it has almost exclusively been a high end consumer product — sold mostly at salon’s, department stores, and luxury beauty stores, with the high end price. TRESemmé, being ahead of the curve, launched two waterless shampoo formulas this month that are available in drugstores, and are a mere fraction of the price tag most other dry shampoos have.
TRESemmé FreshStart Dry Shampoo for oily/straight to normal hair comes in a can that looks almost identical to a hairspray. The product sprays out exactly like hairspray, as well, and is intended to be used about 8-12 inches from the roots of your hair, leaving behind a fresh, citrus scent. You will instantly notice that the formula soaks up any oil from your scalp, and leaves your roots feeling very clean and voluminous, similar to having a fresh blowout. Many dry shampoos I have tried in spray form have a scent that is too strong, lingers on my hair, and smells funky. The product scent delivers as promised with a light citrus scent that smells clean and feminine, not overpowering or chemical like. This spray formula definitely works best on those with fine, oily, and/or straight hair, as it deeply penetrates the hair shaft and scalp to soak up dirt and oil. Your hair is left completely dry, with a soft, clean texture to it that is ready to style as normal.
TRESemmé FreshStart Waterless Foam Shampoo for dry/curly hair is essentially the same product as the spray dry shampoo, but in mousse form, intended to work specifically on hair that needs moisture and refreshment. The waterless foam shampoo pumps out into your hand as a light foam that can then be rubbed into your roots. The scent on the waterless foam shampoo is exactly the same as the dry shampoo, but contains aloe vera, to add moisture to curly or brittle hair. I bought this formula to test it against the dry shampoo even though I do not have dry or curly hair, and though it worked as intended, it left my roots feeling slightly damp, and felt a bit heavy for my hair, which I did not like. I then used this product on my niece, who has a head of tightly wound curls, and the moisture was perfect for her hair type, leaving behind no dampness.
Both of these products have multiple uses that are convenient for many different lifestyles. These products are perfect for many types: a person-on-the-go to store in their bag for quick touch ups, a gym goer who wants to soak up sweat and refresh their hair without a shower, someone who color treats their hair and wishes to preserve their color as long as possible, someone who is short on time, or even someone who wishes to remove a specific scent (i.e, cigarette smoke) from their tresses. The dry shampoo and waterless foam allow you to start with a clean slate, removing any residue or product from your hair, giving you a blank canvas with which to style your hair.
Bottom line: TRESemmé FreshStart Dry Shampoo and TRESemmé FreshStart Waterless Foam Shampoo are efficient, inexpensive, accessible alternatives to more expensive formulas on the market. The product scent is very desirable when compared with other dry shampoos on the market, and remove odor, oil, and residue from your hair. However, be sure to view the product labels, and buy the correct TRESemmé FreshStart formula for your hair type, or else you may have undesired results.
