If you’ve been with my blog for a while, you’ll know that aside from Face Masks, there’s one product which I can not resist trying the newest releases of, it’s Dry Shampoo. And you’ll also know that despite by best efforts of trying, I’ve had a rather rocky relationship with Soap and Glory. So the two combined naturally had me intrigued.
If I was to describe my relationship status with Soap and Glory, it would be the husband of a best friend who I do not like, we’ve met on many occasions, and some nights they’re bare-able but for the most part, we can’t seem to see eye to eye. There is a very limited selection of items within the haircare section of S&G, as far as I’m aware the Glad Hair Day Shampoo and Conditioner duo being the only items, until the Rushshower launched, I reviewed those in 2015, and to cut a long story short (unless you want to read my review here) it made my hair really, really dry and unmanageable, in the end I used up the conditioner whilst I was shaving my legs, and the shampoo as a shower gel.
The Rushshower looks just as I would expect a Soap and Glory dry shampoo to look, Pink with it’s trademark retro feel. This is described as a scent-national dry shampoo, and I can’t fail to agree, as it’s heavily perfumed with the ‘Signature Pink’ Soap and Glory scent of Rose and Bergamot. It certainly goes a long way into helping your hair appear fresh just from the scent. They describe the formula as being a Touch-Release technology meaning as you swish and ruffle your hair around you’ll get an extra burst of fragrance, not too sure I agree with that one. It lingers in the hair but it’s not as powerful as they make out.
The jet of product that comes out is actually pretty strong and I was expecting a heavy white residue to be left all over my hair. Whilst it does leave something intitially after the first brush through the hair that easily disappears and even on my darker brown roots there’s no hint of colour left, living up to it’s promises of being suitable for every hair colour.
I’m actually surprised at how much I like this, I’ve been using this to add a little volume even when my hair is clean. Often I find texturising dry shampoos too heavy and normal dry shampoos not capable of this task, but this seems to have the perfect texture for just making hair look less flat. Add to that it does actually make the hair look clean again, it doesn’t do a lot for me tackling day three hair, but day two hair it has me looking and feeling fresh with no residue left behind.
It doesn’t quite beat my beloved Aussie Miracle Dry Shampoo to the top spot for banishing greasy appearances, I think that one takes the edge slightly. But I love the texturising effect that this has at the same time without being overwhelmingly so as it’s very controllable. I will be keeping a can of this stocked up in my drawer aside my Aussie depending on what I’m using it for/how I’m styling my hair, and would totally recommend!
They also do this in a travel size 50ml can, if I hadn’t of already picked up a mini for my honeymoon I would have been running to the shop to get one for my trip. The travel size does seem to be a bit of a rip off, £2.50 for 50ml, vs £3 for 200ml, but that’s the price you normally have to pay for a mini!
So I know what you’re noticing, A Soap and Glory product I not only like, but I love. Hallelujah, it finally happened.
