Review: Moroccanoil Dry Shampoo Dark Tones


The Promise: "Moroccanoil® Dry Shampoo Dark Tones contains ultra-fine, oil-absorbing rice starch that removes buildup and odor, leaving hair instantly clean and refreshed"

The Price: £14.85 / $26.00 205ml

The Stockist: /

The Application: Moroccanoil's Dry Shampoo comes in a spray can which makes application clean and easy - the nozzle distributes the product evenly which I love. Now that sounds anal-as-fuck but when I use other dry shampoos, I can never get a steady amount of product to come out during each spray... leading to an uneven build-up of product in my hair.

The product is easy to blend and is very lightweight, which is great for fine haired girls like myself. So many dry shampoos feel heavy and overly powdery in the hair, so it's nice to use something that doesn't weigh the hair down. This also means you can keep applying the dry shampoo every day without heavy build up - depending on how much of a dirty bitch you are. I've been known to not wash my hair for two no judgement here.

The Results: This dry shampoo gives amazing results and it smells fucking gorgeous too. It contains rice starch, which is great at absorbing oil and it's also UV-protecting and argan oil-infused; so in addition to keeping hair clean, it also protects it.

There are two versions of the Moroccanoil Dry Shampoo; Light Tones and Dark Tones. The latter is designed for brunettes and contains a dark-ish tint. Before using Dark Tones, I assumed it was similar to the Bumble & Bumble Hair Powder - a coloured dry shampoo that helps hide re-growth and give the appearance of thicker hair. However the Moroccanoil Dry Shampoo really doesn't deliver any lasting colour to the hair, the tint simply eliminates that dull, chalky look you get with most dry shampoos and helps keep your hair colour rich and vibrant.

The Pro: This shampoo is super lightweight and cleans the hair perfectly without drying it out or altering its texture.

The Con: As much as I love the Moroccanoil Dry Shampoo Dark Tones, I don't think it works better for brunette hair than any other standard dry shampoo. So if you're looking for a dry shampoo that also injects colour into your roots, this isn't for you.
