Toni&Guy Matt Texture Dry Shampoo | Review

If you wash your hair every single day, this post might not interest you. But if you think washing it everyday is damaging for the hair or you're just a lazy person like me (I feel you girl) then keep reading.
We all know that a right dry shampoo can save your day, but in order to find that right shampoo, you have to waste a couple of bucks. I've had my fair share of weird smelling dry shampoos and am still in search of a dry shampoo that does what it claims & smells nice\fresh.

I don't have an oily scalp, and my hair used to look fresh without washing it for 3-4 days (lucky, I know) but ever since I moved to Islamabad, there's something in the air that has made my scalp a bit oily and i have to wash my hair every other day.
(a struggle which you will only understand if you have long/thick hair)

I've been using the Batiste Dry Shampoo for over 2 years but wanted to try something new and that's when I came across the Toni&Guy matt texture dry shampoo, and decided to give it a try.

Now for some reason I had this image in mind that every product by Toni & Guy would be a 10/10 because Toni & Guy is a multi-award winning hairdressing brand with more that 50 years of experience in haircare expertise (source:google). And they have salons in different cities so they probably know what they're doing. But I was a little disappointed with this product.

Directions for use: Shake can before and during use. Spray on dry hair from root to tip. Allow product to set for a few seconds and then work through with fingers. For longer lasting texture, finish with Toni&Guy Flexible Hold Hairspray.

Okay can we just stop right here and talk about how all these brands wants us to purchase their entire range of products in order for us to see the 'results'. Why can't we buy the product individually and see the results.
So they want me to buy more products from this range and then you 'suggest' that it works better if you use the shampoo, conditioner, hairspray, serum etc from the same range?
No thankyou.
I'm not gonna spend my money on your entire range and then be disappointed with every single product. k thnx.

My thoughts:
It does give a matte finish not gonna argue with that but it makes my hair so stiff that i can't brush it once i've sprayed it on. I have to use a wide tooth comb that too very gently or the hair just breaks. Every time I use it I feel like there's so much product in my hair, and it just does not feel clean. Also, it smells really weird. It has a chemically scent to it. It just smells like a bad shampoo.

4 years back I purchased a Toni&Guy dry shampoo, it looked similar to this shampoo but the bottle was white in color, and it worked really well for me. Even though it did have a soapy scent but it made my hair non-greasy without making it stiff. Not sure if they discontinued that product or changed the look (and formula) and came up with this one, which is a no-no for me.

Final Verdict:
If you don't mind a dry shampoo that smells a bit weird and makes your hair stiff and at some times difficult to brush, then this is the product for you.
But I have to say that it does give the hair a matt finish and absorbs the oil on your scalp.
I don't think I'll repurchase it but I wouldn't stop anyone else from buying it either, because if you want a dry shampoo to give your hair a matt look, you should give this product a try.

You can getthis dry shampoo easily from Shaheen Chemist and D-Watson. I don't remember exactly but I think I paid 1100rs (or less) for it.
