Girlz Only Dusk 'Til Dawn Dry Shampoo (review)

I wasn't especially enamoured with Girlz Only's XXL Volume Plus Dry Shampoo. The fragrance was chokingly strong, the white powder didn't blend in very well and the can was ridiculously difficult to read. It's been nearly two years since then, so I thought I'd give them another shot.

Girlz Only Dusk 'Til Dawn Dry Shampoo

This time I've bought the basic dry shampoo. There are no (disappointing) volumising promises here, just simple hair reviving between washes. I bought the Dawn 'Til Dusk version, which is packaged in a handbag-sized 150 ml can, but the writing on the back is STILL too small, printed in dark colours and crammed with too many other languages.

The spray is of expected quality, it's hard to go wrong here, and the powder looks as white as before, but this time I find it does blend in quite well! You still have to brush it out – and I'm using the same brush as before – but once you do it's not obvious you've got dry shampoo in.

I also found my hair felt thicker – thicker than when using the XXL version, funnily enough! – and it held whatever style I had planned for it without difficulty. One application also lasts all day and all night. The only downside is the natural shine-absorbing properties it has, but a little serum after use can cure that.

The fragrance also seems to have been toned down compared to before. And this Dawn 'Til Dusk scent is rather lovely, actually, it's a refreshing citrus-floral smell that's amongst my favourites in the dry shampoo market! It's quite a turnaround.

And the price? The recommended retail price of just £1.50 is less than I paid for the last can so it's value is outstanding; especially now it works so well. For this reason alone it's a product I'd heartily recommend, and I never thought I'd be saying that.

Cheap way to revive hair
Can is almost impossible to read
Nice, handbag-sized can
I've only seen it at Tescos
Lovely, bright fragrance
Slightly dulls shine
