For quite sometime I have been rocking long hair. About two years ago, I cut off about 13 inches of hair in an extreme hair cut that brought me from lower back level hair to a chin level bob. Since then, I have been growing it back out. At the current moment, I am dead set on getting “Angelina Jolie Tomb Raider” length hair. Due to the length of my hair, I’ve adopted an every other day hair washing routine. I don’t have time during the work week to be blow drying my hair. It’s much to time-consuming. So, I wash my hair only on Sundays, Tuesdays, Thurs. On my “no wash” days, I like to spray my hair down with a dry shampoo to keep my hair from appearing greasy and to give it a nice smell.
Recently in my August 2018 Birchbox, I received the Amika Phantom Hydrating Shampoo Foam. This foam is a combination of a dry shampoo and a conditioner. I was excited to try this product, but figured I would wait until I finished the can of dry shampoo spray I was using. Well, today was the day I finally finished the can and got to try this.
Let me start of by saying the smell of this product is wonderful! However, that was the extent of the “wonderful” of this product. Maybe it’s just my hair. But this product did not work at all. All this product managed to do was make my hair ridiculously greasy looking. I followed the directions EXACTLY. It looked like I had not washed my hair in a month. I kept massaging it, hoping it would absorb more and look better, but NOPE. The worst part about it was, I had zero time to wash it out of my hair. So, I had to throw my hair in a bun and then put a head scarf on to try to cover my greasy head. Perhaps results could vary based on hair type & texture, but the results I had were enough to make me throw this product in the trash. If you are interested in trying this, I would highly recommend you try it out on a day that you have time to shower if you happen to have the same results I did.
