H&M launched a new beauty line, one that is eco friendly, organic, certified by Ecocert and part of their already existing clothing line called H&M Conscious. The 2016 H&M Conscious Beauty Collection has everything covered from hair care, to skin care, to body products. Today I want to talk about their refreshing, cleansing and stimulating peppermint dry shampoo. Having dealt with an oily scalp my whole life I would go as far as saying I'm the perfect candidate to give you my thoughts.
Purchasing this product I was very impressed with the box it came in, it looks very cute and appealing, I personally love the black and white details. The container itself I don't like so much, it's plain and doesn't show much life. The H&M dry shampoo contains certified organic potato starch and is fragranced with essential oils. I have to admit I was a little afraid it would smell a lot like mens' deodorant, overboard minty and strong, but it doesn't. The scent is comparable to having made peppermint tea, it's pleasant and simple.
Depending on what you are looking for in a dry shampoo you're either going to love or hate this product. If you have an oily scalp like me, any dry shampoo that holds up more than a couple hours is great, one that keeps your hair fresh all day is a miracle. Most girls just opt for a bit of volume at the roots and a nice lingering scent. This dry shampoo doesn't do that, it's not made to be stylish, its purpose truly and only is to keep the oils on your scalp at bay all day long. However I can't say that the awesome staying power of this product doesn't come with a couple surprises. I highly recommend brushing your hair very thoroughly before applying it. This formula dry shampoo makes you hair extremely coarse, like you've spent a whole week at the beach without washing it. Your hair will have an insane amount of volume but it won't be very manageable. On greasy days where I reach for this product, putting my hair up in a bun is standard procedure. My hairdo looks sleek, fly-away free and doesn't move, it all stays in place and there is no need for reapplying product later on during the day. Your hair wont feel fresh to the touch however and you will have residue on your hands every single time you'll play with it. I advise washing off the leftovers as the feeling left on your hands afterwards can be uncomfortable. The method of sprinkling this over your hair I find not to be very effective, it works but it's easy to over go over board, I would prefer the cap of a salt sprinkler, the hole on top doesn't make for an easy or even application.
That being said I love this dry shampoo. I finally don't have to worry about washing my hair everyday or having to carry extra samples of dry shampoo spray bottles in my handbag, just in case my hair decides to go haywire again. The fact that this product is organic makes me even more excited. I've used this dry shampoo more than I can remember which is something that was impossible with spray cans, they would empty after about 3 uses. I think for the price for the H&M peppermint dry shampoo is most definitely worth you money and a great investment if you have greasy hair.
