Herbal Essences Clearly Naked is genuinely one of the best dry shampoos I have ever tried. Despite the unsettlingly sexualised name (see LBQ's post), this dry shampoo possesses the most lightweight formula to help lift slightly greasy hair into soft 'freshly-washed' locks. This dry shampoo is paraben-free (a series of compounds which can influence hormone levels), giving you the option to choose which chemicals and ingredients you put on your hair. While some hair products do use paraben with no real negative effects, it is great to have a range of products which allows you to choose a more natural beauty collection.
After reading loads of negative reviews on the Superdrug website, I am shocked to hear so many people have strongly disliked the formula, calling it sticky, liquidy and that it "smells like cheese" (LOLZ). I have been using this product for a couple of weeks, and have had none of these unfortunate effects. The dry shampoo, for me, has no scent, adding to its 'naked' appeal, while the natural tapioca helps to absorb any excess oils in your hair to leave it feeling really light and fresh.
Clearly Naked is an absolute pleasure to use, and while it is recommended to shake before use, I have often ignored these instructions (as everyone does) and found no liquid within the formula when sprayed onto my hair. Unlike many of the Batiste dry shampoos, Herbal Essences leaves you with no annoying white specks you don't often realise you have on the back of your head until you leave the house. The effortlessly light formula barely even needs brushing out to get locks looking full of life- just a quick massage into the roots of the hair and you're good to go.
While it isn't as volumising as other dry shampoos, it is certainly one of the best for banishing that greasy look and adding a bit of pizzazz to your barnet. For £3, it's an amazing little product to chuck into your handbag for on-the-go hair revivals.
