Swell Ultimate Volume Dry Shampoo Review


Swell Ultimate Volume Dry Shampoo review

In general, I cannot really say that dry shampoo is one of my favourite beauty products out there. But as a “proud” owner of very fine hair that goes greasy on the second day after washing I pretty much don’t have any other choice as to use it all the time. After a few failed research experiments with totally white roots and straw-like hair (I am sure any reader who has tried dry shampoos before will totally get what I mean here), I finally found my one and only perfect hair match! Let me introduce you to Swell Ultimate Volume Dry Shampoo.

Swell haircare was on my wish list of brands to try for some time and after reading all the positive reviews I decided to finally give their dry shampoo a go. My only concern was the price of £20 for a small tube with just 14.5g of the product. But as it turned out this dry shampoo is extremely economical and it is more of long-term investment than I initially expected. I had been using my first tube once every two days and it had lasted me for more than 4 months! Also its compact size makes it a perfect product to carry around in your handbag or take with you while travelling.

On top of being a very economical product, Swell Ultimate Volume Dry Shampoo performs really well! First of all it does not irritate the scalp or makes it flaky, second it tackles greasy roots like no other dry shampoo I’ve tried before. It leaves my hair so fresh and soft and I cannot actually feel the powder on my hair when I touch it. This shampoo also gives plenty of bounce and volume and it is super easy to brush the hair afterwards without any nasty residue left on the brush. And now to the main bit that lets most of the other dry shampoos down. Swell Dry Shampoo doesn’t leave any white residue on my dark brown hair after application. This is a true winning point for me!

I usually spray Swell Ultimate Volume Dry Shampoo in the morning all over the roots when I don’t feel like washing my hair and massage it a bit. It gets absorbed really well and after a quick brush my hair is ready for the day. This shampoo comes as a white powder that is dispensed as a very fine mist that goes directly to the hair rather than all over the bathroom. I think the spray is what makes this dry shampoo so economical as only a small amount of product is released each time. I need to shake it well before each use and then it dispenses really well. However, it becomes nearly impossible to use it once only a bit of the product is left. But you can remove the spray top and sprinkle the powder directly on the hair or using a brush.

In terms of ingredients, Swell Dry Shampoo has a reasonably clean list with rice starch, magnesium carbonate and botanical oils and extracts. Rooibos, Red Mandarin and Calendula look particularly attractive to me. But bear in mind that it also contains many essential oils and talc which some people might be sensitive to. I personally don’t react on any of its ingredients, but it might be a good idea to do a patch test first. This dry shampoo washes out really well too and doesn’t have any scent (at least not the one I can feel).

I have a few other Swell hair care products on my wish list. Have you tried any Swell products before and if so what are your top picks?
