MY TAKE ON LOREAL PARIS EXTRAORDINARY CLAY SCALP REFRESHER
Packaging: The scalp refresher comes in a cute bottle with a long nozzle which makes application precise. The bottle is very easy to use and carry around.
Texture and fragrance: The scalp refresher feels and smells just like a hand sanitizer! It is non-sticky and feels cool due to the presence of menthol.
How I use and after-effects: To use, apply the scalp refresher directly onto the scalp, massage and comb. That is it! Use this between hair washes to keep your hair and scalp feeling fresh.
Since I wash my hair only once a week, I make sure I use a dry shampoo during emergencies or when I have to go out and scalp feels oily. I have never used anything like this before and this is definitely an innovative product! The product claims to cool your scalp, refresh it and reduce oiliness and greasiness so you could survive at least 2 hair washes. I decided to skip using dry shampoo and use this instead to see if it does anything to the scalp oiliness and here is what I feel about the product- The scalp refresher definitely makes your scalp feel cool and instantly calms down any itchiness! However, if you like using a dry shampoo, you won’t really use this as an alternative because this product makes your scalp and hair wet and takes some time to dry down. Once dried (my scalp and roots took up to 30 minutes to dry down completely!) hair does feel bouncy but certainly not silky like how you feel after using a dry shampoo. Also, hair near the roots (area where you have used the product directly) feels a bit stiff even if it looks bouncy which isn’t a pleasant feeling. The product definitely reduces scalp oiliness and I love the cooling sensation but this cannot be a substitute to a dry shampoo. The product is great to be used in summers also because it isn’t good to use dry shampoo more than once between washes and also when you are back from gym. Keeping the price point in mind, the product isn’t bad.
