Dry, No Doubt

After converting to alternate night hair washes, using dry shampoo to tide me over second day hair has become imperative. I've dabbled in the aerosol side of the range, with Batiste and Klorane, but I wanted to try a non-aerosol variation and Lush's offering No Drought is affordable and easily accessible. 





Spraying it from an aerosol can to the hair's roots is straightforward but using a bottle seems a bit perplexing. Despite this first impression, puffing it out of the bottle is a lot more convenient than I'd perceived prior to purchase. It doesn't dispense too much, which is something I found aerosols had the tendency to do due to the high pressure that caused it to gun out. Lush's ingredients basically read as a citrus-scented cornflour. The scent is mild and unoffensive but is reminiscent of lime sherbet. It doesn't leave the hair with a white cast, but I don't normally have that problem because after letting it settle for half a minute and brushing through to blend the powder into the hair it doesn't show. I'm happy with the way it wears over the course of the day- it absorbs the oil at the roots and leaves the hair feeling dry and quite textured, which I would rate equal to the Klorane Gentle Dry Shampoo with Oat Milk, which was my preferred aerosol can choice. I quite like Lush's No Drought but I'll wait until I'm at the bottom of this bottle to determine whether I've been fully converted to loose non-aerosol dry shampoos.

  1. I've converted to night showers as well. I haven't heard many good things about the Lush dry shampoo so I dismissed it in the past but you're making me reconsider! It seems like pretty good value for money since you get a lot of product for the price. I'd have thought that because it's non-aerosol, using it might cause more trouble than it's worth but great to hear that it's really not. x

    1. I heard the Stila dry shampoo was good, which was packaged similarly, and I hadn't restocked in a while so Lush's looked good to try. I was a little wary of the bottle to begin with, but it's no worse than aerosols! Give it a go! xx

  2. I wonder if a bottle of this goes longer than a can of Klorane? I've been intrigued by Bumble and bumble Prêt-à-Powder so this seems like a low end alternative :p Though I don't have any problems with an aerosol can dispensing too much product - because I need a lot of it, haha.

    1. YES! The Bumble and bumble version is so hyped up at the moment- but I'm really liking this cheaper alternative and I haven't bought any Bumble and bumble things before because Mecca really hike those prices up... You might like it, given the rate that you use up cans of Klorane? :P

  3. I tried a few dry shampoos and although I love the idea, I seem to forget to use mine on a regular basis. Your post reminds me of that. I saw this Lush product before in their store... considering of trying it :)

    1. They're a good way to refresh oily roots between washes!

  4. I was just thinking about dry shampoo last week and whether I REALLY need it. Not a huge fan of the cans because they don't distribute very well on my hair. I might give this a go!

    1. I find the cans are a little difficult to work with as well! Puffing this out takes a bit of getting used to but it's not hard to control. :) x

  5. I've been meaning to try this, but everytime I go into Lush, I'm always like, "ERGH, THE EXPENSE" (big fan of their bath bombs, but since they're one time use and expensive, I keep the Lush trips to a minimal). I do like that you can easily control the amount of product though, and being the big bottle that it is, it would probably last me a while if I do buy it.

    1. I can SO relate! Bath things from Lush are ridiculously expensive for one-use items! I can see it lasting quite a while- not sure if it's more or less than other dry shampoos though! :) xx
