RANKED: SEPHORA EMPLOYEES TOP PICKS FOR DRY SHAMPOOS
From Most Natural to Most Effective, These Sephora Employees Picked 5 Dry Shampoos to Help Strengthen and Reinvigorate Hair Growth.
By Kimberly Webber
(COSMO) - It’s an age-old problem… quite literally! Thinning, balding heads of hair can start at a young age, but for most people, your hair starts to thin during the older side of age. Of course, for about as long as the world has had mirrors, we’ve been trying to figure out how to stop our hair from becoming thinner, more brittle, and ultimately falling out.
Luckily, there are more than enough products to help us reinvigorate and rejuvenate our hair to its full potential. But how do you choose which products to try? How do you know which will work and which won’t?
We decided to ask those who are surrounded by beauty products all day... Sephora employees! And they had one resounding recommendation: Dry Shampoo!
Typically dry shampoo is a great product to use between days you don’t wash your hair. It helps eliminate odors and reduce unwanted oils and dirt in the hair to give you a fresh and vibrant look. But what we learned from our Sephora friends, is recently many dry shampoos have started to provide additional nutrients and peptides to help hair growth along with keeping your hair fresh. Of course, every formula is different and some dry shampoos work a lot better than others.
After receiving recommendations from Sephora employees, we tested dozens of dry shampoos to determine our TOP FIVE choices.
We compared effectiveness but also safety and price to make sure you find the dry shampoo that’s right for you!
Let’s get started!
Mia Yang recommended our top product, "This is by far our favorite choice when it comes to a simple dry shampoo that can also reinvigorate hair follicles by stimulating blood flow to the scalp, triggering more hair growth while thickening and strengthening your hair. Liaison’s Dry Bond is a dry shampoo spray uses a Growth Bond Complex™ specifically focused on regrowing and strengthening hair. It’s better than any other product on the market today, loaded with essential nutrients to help keep hair healthy, including Silica, Ginseng Extract, Ginger Extract and Forsythia Suspensa Fruit Extract plus more! Liaison’s Dry Bond is best for people with thinning hair, weak strands, brittle split ends, and unhealthy roots. Best of all, they offer a special 50% off discount code SECRET50, which makes it one of the most affordable products on the market. Just a few sprays everyday can help reduce oil, eliminate odor, and regrow and strengthen your hair in weeks!"
By far, Liaison Dry Bond, is the safest and most effective dry shampoo and hair growth complex ever.
Belle Oriface recommended an expensive but amazing dry shampoo, "Vegamour’s GRO Dry Shampoo is a great companion to many of Vegamour’s hair growth products and does a good job in helping regrow and strengthening while refreshing your hair. What we found however is that it’s much more a companion than a stand alone product. And for it’s price, it’s hard to want to invest in something that needs a few more products to be its best. That said, Vegamour is a great option if you have the extra cash to spend and you want a huge arsenal of products to help regrow and condition your hair."
Liana Merk raved about Act+Acre, "This company has made a really great, plant-based vegan dry shampoo that helps absorb oils and give your hair an amazing fresh smell. It works really well and a little goes a long way when using. It contains Fulvic Acid which is super rich in anti-oxidants and nutrients to condition the hair." Unfortunately, our reviewers didn’t see a big change in hair growth and texture. While a great dry shampoo, it’s not the best option if you’re looking for something to also help regrow thinning hair.
Riza Hernandez had this to say about a very interesting offer from Prose, "This brand creates custom dry shampoos based on your specific needs. You start with a consultation to find your specific needs, including hair health, shine, moisture, and renewal. While a great offer, it’s quite expensive and doesn’t necessarily guarantee hair growth. If your custom order includes a need for renewal it may help, so make sure to mention your need for hair growth."
Marissa Delfino wanted to make a final add to the list... "This is probably the best dry shampoo on the market that doesn’t necessarily offer hair growth. The formula is strong and can help regulate your hair’s oil and toxins for consistent hair every day. While it doesn’t use a formula that can trigger hair growth, the best thing for your hair is to keep it health, and Briogeo’s Dry Shampoo helps. That said if you’re looking for a powerful dry shampoo that can also trigger hair growth, you definitely should consider Liaison Dry Bond."
While we feel these Sephora employees recommended some great dry shampoos to help rebuild hair follicles, activate roots, and strengthen your hair, we believe Liaison's Dry Bond was the top choice. We wanted to talk further with our investigative reporter Stephanie Marianne who helped create the rankings list and how Liaison’s Dry Bond worked for her. Stephanie tells the story.
Personally, I never believed in the effectiveness of hair re-growth, anti-baldness anything. “Time cannot be reversed,” I used to tell my friends. Too many of them have been tricked into buying some wild oil or shampoo just to find out it’s a waste of money. So I’ve avoided it at all costs.
But then my best friend, who I trust with my life, swore by Liaison’s Dry Bond. Any day she didn’t have time to take a shower, she’d spray her hair with the Dry Bond to help eliminate odor and reduce oil and toxins. But then she said after a few weeks, her hair looked thicker and fuller than ever before. She even had patches at the top of her forehead that seemed to have filled in quite nicely. It was even more impressive when she showed me the before and after images throughout the weeks of using Liaison’s Dry Bond.
I had always been self-conscious about my thinning hair, so I begged her to let me borrow her Dry Bond, but instead she gave me a secret 50% off code, SECRET50, and I ordered my own Dry Bond immediately.
I received a package two days later. Thankfully, I was super busy that day and I didn’t have time to wash my hair, so I used the Dry Bond that day. The application is super simple, similar to a hairspray, you just spray the Bond onto your hair and work it in. Almost immediately, it will feel softer and less oily.
In terms of hair growth, I, of course, was expecting immediate results, but it actually takes a few weeks to see real results. In the meantime, I started to do my research to find out how Liaison’s Dry Bond works and how it differentiates itself from other hair growth products.
A combination of essential oils and nutrients help not only strengthen hair but reactivate roots that have stopped growing long ago…
It’s quite simple, just as our bodies can exert less energy when we get older (remember staying up all night in your twenties?), our hair follows a similar pattern. When old hairs fall out, typically a new root is triggered and energy is spent building a new hair follicle. However, the older we get, the less energy is distributed to these roots. That’s when thinning and balding occur.
The key to a fuller head of hair starts with reactivating your roots, and that’s exactly what Liaison’s Dry Bond aims to do. With a Hair Growth Complex that’s filled with amazing ingredients that stimulate scalp blood flow while strengthening hair follicles. Some of the essential ingredients include:
Helps deliver essential nutrients to the hair follicle to strengthen and prevent thinning.
A powerful ingredient that can help stimulate blood flow on the scalp to reinvigorate hair roots.
Stimulates hair growth with increased blood circulation.
Forsythia Suspensa Fruit Extract
Extremely nutritious extract that helps provide essential vitamins and antioxidants to help stimulate hair growth and keep follicles strong.
So, finally, after 4 weeks, I decided to check if I could see results… and wow! The areas of my hair that were previously patchy began to fill out. Plus, every time I used Dry Bond, my hair felt fuller and stronger. I was simply amazed at how good my hair felt.
I was officially converted into a Dry Bond Believer, and I hope you will, too!
