I ended up with both the aerosol and non-aerosol version of the Klorane Dry Shampoo with Oat Milk completely by accident. I originally purchased the aerosol spray version after hearing great reviews from pretty much everyone, including my friend Lisa. I went to repurchase it during a special 40% off select items promotion Birchbox was running, but purchased the non-aerosol version without realizing. Both versions are made with rice starch and oat milk extracts, and soak up excess oil while not being too drying on your hair.
I use the non-aerosol version how I use baby powder as dry shampoo – by putting a small amount in my hand and applying it with a (very old) makeup brush. To get the product out of the non-aerosol bottle you have to squeeze the bottle until the dry shampoo puffs out. I find that the bottle dispenses way too much product to apply it directly to your hair and can be very messy, which is why I squeeze it into my hand first. It leaves your hair feeling a little more powdery than baby powder and the aerosol version, and has a pretty strong white cast, but since I’m blonde that isn’t really an issue (I use the makeup brush to make sure it’s all blended in, plus it makes roots less noticeable). It has a pretty strong scent, but it definitely smells better and less obvious than baby powder. I don’t think I would repurchase the non-aerosol version as I don’t think it performs much better than baby powder, but is a lot more expensive. It is more volumizing than baby powder, but I can live without that. Since it is non-aerosol, it is better for the environment.
However, I LOVE the aerosol spray version and have to refrain from using it every day. I like that it works as both a dry shampoo and a light hairspray, and adds some volume while allowing you to move and shape your hair a little. The aerosol bottle is very convenient and dispenses the perfect amount of product, making it much easier to apply than the non-aerosol version. I shake the bottle and then spray it directly on my roots, and brush it out a little with my fingers. It is not as strong smelling and leaves less of a white cast than the non-aerosol version, and there’s also a version for brunettes.
It definitely feels like I’m going through the aerosol spray version a lot faster, even though I use the non-aerosol one significantly more. I usually use the non-aerosol version during the week, and save the aerosol version for the weekend or more “special occasions”. I think the non-aerosol version is a bit better when it comes to oil absorption, but the spray version works fine for me as my hair doesn’t get too greasy. It you have super oily and fine hair you might prefer the non-aerosol version. I will definitely be repurchasing the Klorane Dry Shampoo with Oat Milk aerosol spray version when I run out, but sticking to my usual baby powder during the week. Sorry environment!
