Review-Not Your Mother’s Clean Freak Refreshing Dry Shampoo

27 May



I owned this a few years ago.  I didn’t remember if I loved it or hated it, but I need some in a pinch and this was a travel size for cheap.

Oh, Not Your Mother’s Clean Freak Refreshing Dry Shampoo, you are not great.

I’m relieved it was only $2.99 at my local CVS.

What do we expect from a dry shampoo in this day and age?  We expect it to not leave residue, we expect it to absorb some oil, we expect it to give your hair new life, to give it body, to make your hair look good.  With dry shampoo, you should be getting 2 or 3 days out of your hair before you need to shampoo. This may differ based on your location (if you are in Florida, this won’t work because I have been to Florida and child, IT IS HOT) and on your level of physical activity.

My thoughts on Not Your Mother’s Clean Freak Refreshing Dry Shampoo:

Pros –

It smells okay


It leaves residue. Not super white, like others can, but the particles sit on top of the hair.

It doesn’t really absorb oil.  I’m pretty sure this goes along with it leaving residue.  It doesn’t disappear because it doesn’t absorb oil.

It weighs down hair.  Major bummer.

I felt it made my hair look greasier than before I used it.  HUGE disappointment.  I ended up washing my hair immediately after spraying some at my roots.  Sort of defeated the purpose of it all together.

Will I repurchase?

No, not again. And if your mother is smart, she isn’t using this either.

      Practice and kind of shampoo you are using. What’s happening when you use it?

        It just looks oily still, I’ve accepted the fact that I will never figured it out… I have tried so many different ones

        On what day are you using it? Are you maybe using too much? Is your hair very oily?

        Late afternoons, possibly, and my hair was very oily before I switched shampoos

    I usually use batiste (if that how you spell it??😂) if you’ve used batiste before, could you tell me any better differences that this dry shampoo has compared to the batiste one?😄❤️

      i have used Batiste. I love that it comes in shades! I think Batiste is better than Not Your Mother’s. Stick with it!

      • miaslines May 27, 2016 at 4:46 pm #

        Aw great! I love the smells batiste produce too😄

    I had my hair braided a last month and used my first dry shampoo a week after. I was not impressed, got it from Tesco(UK), I didn’t like the smell and I was brushing it our days after. It was like my scalp was flaking. Not sure if it was residue or was is suppose to be that way?

    I agree that this one isn’t great. My favorite is from Batiste as well. I’ve used the one that is tinted brown. It’s so nice that it doesn’t leave that white residue!

      Yes! I also love their glitter ones for evenings. Little shiny flair in your hair!

        Ha! I didn’t know they had glitter ones! Not really my style, but how fun! 🙂
