I realize this may be a controversial opinion, but I typically steer clear of dry shampoos at all costs. I have deep, raven-toned hair. No matter what dry shampoo I use and how much I rub it in, it seems that I’m always battling white streaks at my roots.

Even if I’m not left with white chunks in my hair á la Cruella de Vil, dry shampoo never fails to leave some kind of filmy residue that somehow makes my hair feel even dirtier than what I started with. If you regularly use dry shampoo, you know what I’m talking about—the spray can leave hair feeling like it has an unnatural coat on top of it.

My typical dislike of dry shampoo runs in direct opposition to my lifestyle choices. I dye my hair darker, so I try to avoid washing it as much as possible for color preservation. I also lead a pretty active lifestyle, so my hair is very often sweaty (TMI, sorry). If I boil it down, dry shampoo is kind of essential for me, but I find myself either slicking my hair back or washing it an extra time to avoid using it. 

Olaplex’s latest innovation, its No.4D Clean Volume Detox Dry Shampoo, has proved to be a game changer for me in the few short weeks I’ve had to test it. The first time I got to try the newest dry shampoo, celebrity hairstylist and Olaplex ambassador Jimmy Paul styled my (unwashed) hair using it. At the time, I was on second-day hair that was beginning to fall flat at the roots and could undoubtedly benefit from being spruced up. 

When I left, I thought my hair looked great, but I was mostly wowed by how light it felt. My head felt two pounds lighter. It felt like I’d just gotten the ultimate bouncy blowout á la 90s supermodels. It felt like I’d just fastened a hose to a fire hydrant filled with clarifying shampoo and blasted my scalp with it. There was no white or filmy residue in sight, and I knew I had a new cult favorite on my hands, especially for people with dark hair like me.
