Herbal Essences Clearly Naked Dry Shampoo Review

Herbal Essences Clearly Naked Dry Shampoo Review

Thanks to the Urban Decay Naked palettes I get a lot of x-rated blog searches and hits, I can only imagine that the Herbal Essences Clearly Naked Dry Shampoo will amplify this. Since I happen to like Herbal Essences Clearly Naked Dry Shampoo I will overlook this small issue ha!

Like an idiot I somehow assumed that the Herbal Essences Clearly Naked Dry Shampoo was exclusive to the US (I could swear blindly that I read that somewhere?) so stocked up. Bad news for me but good news for fellow Brits is that is not the case and it can indeed be found in Superdrug, Boots and even Supermarkets (and cheaper than in the States too!). Dry shampoo is everywhere, most haircare brands offer it with even Boots and Superdrug having their own range too, the problem is that not all dry shampoos are equal!

I require three things from a dry shampoo: it smells great (not a deal breaker if it scentless but anything foul scented and I'm out), it doesn't leave a white or grey cast on my hair and that it absorbs grease - I can live without added volume. Does Herbal Essences Clearly Naked Dry Shampoo deliver all of the above? In a word yes! I'd go as far as saying it is one of the lightest formulated dry shampoo's I have ever tried which initially did have me doubting it it would at all work. The light mist feels weightless on the hair yet quickly soaks up any excess oil all the while refreshing the hair and scalp with a light almost minty fragrance. The good news is that it doesn't leave behind any residue nor a white cast and for those like myself who suffer from an itchy scalp this in no way adds to the situation. It does add a little volume but nothing long lasting or extreme, if purchasing for a volumising effect I'd say think again.

The other good news is that Herbal Essences Clearly Naked Dry Shampoo contains no colourants nor sulphates and is formulated using natural tapioca which I am not sure many other dry shampoos can claim to be. At £2.99 it is a steal and although I do still rate Dove's Dry Shampoo as the best on the budget spectrum this comes a super close second! Kudos Herbal Essences...kudos!

  1. Great post! I have tried different dry shampoo's but not yet found one that was really fantastic. Not sure if we have this brand in the Netherlands, but if we do, then I'm definitely gonna give it a try!

  2. I purchased this in the states and had a faulty can! After 2 uses, all of the power left the aerosol (I don't know how else to explain!) and all that would come out of the nozzle would be the liquid. I did a quick google and it seems it was a relatively common problem. I was gutted, because it had an amazing formula. I'm going to try to pick it up over here again and hopefully I won't end up with a dodgy can

    2. I thought it was only I who had this problem, I just couldn't understand why everyone else loved it apart from me and I definitely think I had a faulty can- exactly the same thing happened to me!
      I think i'll give it another go too!

  3. I also like my dry shampoo to have a good smell, no white cast and do the job at keeping grease at bay. Haven't found any that does the 3 of them yet. I have Dove and I love the smell and light texture but don't feel like it soaks up the grease as well as others. xx

  6. I love this dry shampoo and I got a faulty can twice! TWO faulty cans! It stopped spraying for me after just two uses which was a shame. Its such a good dry shampoo but I can't even use it. How disappointing!

  7. I really like the formula of this dry shampoo, but like Michelle & Melissa, I had problems with the cans clogging after just a couple of uses. I tried running it under warm water, but I couldn't get it unclogged. I'm still searching for a good budget dry shampoo, so I will pick up the Dove dry shampoo next!

  9. I've been using the shampoo and conditioner from this line and am loving it (par the smell..smells a tad like men's cologne to me). I do however love the idea of it having no colorants or sulphates. Always a plus! Nice review :) xx

  13. I also purchased this dry shampoo and was pleased with the results!

    I was sold by the No Parabens incentive but this is so much more than just a "green" alternative to dry shampoos - it's really great and smells wonderful. The texture wasn't as I expected as it's slightly more wet than I'm used to from a dry shampoo but, it definitely makes my hair last those extra critical hours before the next wash.

  15. I bought 2 of these on offer and had to bin them both - so wet, greasy and horrid. Such a shame because they smelt amazing and anything with less nasties is obviously a winner!
