Go LUSH Yourself // No Drought

I'm always on the look out for a rival for Batiste, No Drought from Lush has been out for quite a while, but I hadn't used it, simply because the idea of  an actual powder dry shampoo scared me. I've used other powders before and they've just made a sticky mess on my hair and I don't get overly greasy hair, I'm more of a refresh user. No Drought retails at £6.50 for 115g. A fair bit more than your regular aerosol cans.
When it comes to Lush they make the packaging as simple as they can, it's packaged in their normal 100% recycled bottles that the shower gels are found in. I'm always a fan of their black and white packaging,  most of the products are pretty enough, obviously the powder isn't one of the 'pretties'. Despite being boring, Lush have packed this one with enough info. You won't have to google online to find out how to use, like most of the products.
I use this when I need a refresh, I have long hair and it's a pain in the bum to wash, dry and style. I keep mine healthy and it's not actually healthy to wash your hair everyday anyway. Shake very, very gently onto your hair, part your hair into a couple sections to get the best results. Use a small amount and add more if you need to, do not go over the top or you really will look like you have greys. If you want to be extra safe, puff some onto your hand and work it through your hair this way. Once you've worked the product through your hair, brush through to remove any excess powders and if needs be spin around a lot in the mirror to check every angle and ask someone. I'm still a little cautious using this one!
My favourite thing about No Drought is the scent. I'm a huge fan of grapefruit scents, this smells exactly like it.  Lush use grapefruit oil because it's refreshing & stimulating. Being June and still raining in England, it's a lovely pick me up scent. The main powder in this dry shampoo is cornflour, so your basically putting scented cornflour on your hair, beats baby powder I guess. Cornflour is super fine, so you're less likely to get white marks in your hair like Batiste, it also absorbs oil very well, it's quite surprising what natural products can do! Like the label says, cornflour is smooth, it's pretty silky smooth. No Drought is 100% preservative free & of course don't test on animals, do Batiste test on animals? I'm getting mixed answers on google. If they do and you're anti animal testing this is one to try.
Overall, this dry shampoo isn't as great as Batiste, but it's almost there, it's just not as cooling and refreshing as my favourite Batiste. However it smells amazing and isn't scary to use at all. I was pleasantly surprised. This bottle will last me ages. As for whiteness, I had none. It absorbed up all the oil and didn't leave any build up or my hair feeling sticky. 9/10 Lush. It really does smell delicious!

  6. O I never knew Lush did a dry shampoo. Baiste didn't seem to work the wonders that others claim on my hair when I tried it so I might have to give this Lush version a go!
