Ola ladies,

finally Oscar Blandi is here, where I used to get them in Sephora Singapore. I know their stuffs like years and years ago.

Chinese women after giving birth are not recommended to wash their hair up to a month, it’s unbelievable alright, but I’m not here to debate on that suggestion but to accepting the fact that my families does that as well. I’m ‘forced’ not to wash my hair up to a month which clearly an impossible thing to do for me as I wash my hair daily.

So I’m trying my best to please my mom and in laws by searching for this thing called dry shampoo. After far and wide the only dry shampoo back then (almost a decade ago) was this white powdery thingy which made me looks as if I’m having a major dandruff issue instead of fixing my problem. The powder become sticky and let’s just say ruins more that helping me out. In the end I wash my hair after just a week regardless my mom stern request not to. Let’s face it, sleepless nights after giving birth + fried bee hoon hair is mood breaker alright. I need my hair to be cleaned.

My quest haven’t ended there, years of searching and reluctantly admitting there’s only 1 dry shampoo in the world, I found Oscar Blandi. Reading they do come on various shades including clear for different hair color I’ve tried them on and so happy with the result.

By the time representative from Oscar Blandi Indonesia contacted me, I was thinking, it is about time we are rescue from a bad limp hair day. I know for sure for some people washing their hair daily is an impossible thing to do, we love when our hair fluff in joy. That’s why we need dry shampoo, but not just any dry shampoo, Oscar Blandi’s dry shampoo.

Data from Sephora:

Gentle Dry Shampoo With Oat Milk – Aerosol Spray
What it is:
A dry shampoo with an aerosol pump dispenser.

What it does:
Klorane Gentle Shampoo with Oat Milk lets you clean hair without water. This dry shampoo is based on softening, protective oat extract, cyclodextrins, and natural polysaccharides (micronised powders with very oil-absorbing properties) to clean the hair without washing, as often as required. The hair regains volume and lightness within minutes. Quick and practical to use, it’s recommended for those on-the-go.

What else you need to know:
It’s hypoallergenic and formulated to minimize the risk of allergic reaction.

How to prevent clogging:
-Shake can well prior to and during each usage. If this is not done, solids that fall to the bottom of the can travel through the tube and clog the valve.
-If the product becomes clogged or does not spray, take off the actuator (nozzle) and wash it with hot water.
-Dry well and place nozzle back on the stem.
-Shake can and depress the actuator upside-down. If it sprays it means the valve is not clogged. If it does not spray the valve is clogged.
-If the problem persists gently squeeze the can. If it collapses easily there is no gas, meaning the product has been completely used.

What it is formulated WITHOUT:
– Parabens
– Sulfates
– Synthetic Dyes
– Phthalates
– GMO
– Triclosan

My review: It ain’t pretty.

It does on certain level helps the oily scalp due to lack of shampooing to dry a bit but it is still not as good as real time shampooing. Even far. I’ve tried doing it accordingly, spray less and comb more, it’s just doesn’t work for me. The white powder residue is embarrassing. I better looked like someone who haven’t take a shower for days that look like a powdered head. I wish they have the black color or any other dark color, so it doesn’t make me look like an old granny. Even nowadays grannies colored their hair dark.

The only good thing about this product is they don’t contain any harmful chemical.

My tips: If you are blonde or have white hair, go ahead, use it but still be careful don’t inhale the products, it’s bothers me more than the white powdery spots on my head.
