Joico Instant Refresh Dry Shampoo

I've tried out quite a few dry shampoos over the years (who else used baby powder before this wonderful invention?), and there are so many different types of formulas on the market. Lately I've been trying out Joico's Instant Refresh Dry Shampoo* ($19.95 CAD/200 ml), which claims to bring hair back to life just like a regular shampooing would!

"We sooo get it: There are days when a full-on shampoo just doesn't make the schedule. Or days when your hair just needs a little something-something… even if it’s merely the scent of a freshly-washed coif. The answer, invariably, is our Instant Refresh Dry Shampoo…magic-in-a-can that literally brings hair back to life in seconds, zapping the greasies, and creating the same kind of volume you get after a wet wash." - Joico

Joico's Instant Refresh Dry Shampoo comes in a silver tall can with an aerosol sprayer. I know that people turn to dry shampoo for different reasons - some for added volume, some for texture, for a fresh scent, and lastly to soak up oils. I would fall into the latter category, I really only use dry shampoo on second or third day hair to absorb excess oils, and get me through to the next wash. Joico's Instant Refresh Dry Shampoo is just too lightweight for my needs. This formula gives you absolutely zero white residue - it's 100% colourless, which is a huge plus. But, this formula also doesn't soak up any oils, it mostly just refreshes my hair, and gives it a nice salon scent. You can spray on as much of this as you want, and you won't get any white colour, or any less oily.

So unfortunately, I'm going to have to give this product a pass. If you're looking for a product to lightly refresh & scent you hair, or if your hair is fine and thin, you might like this. Otherwise, I think that there are better dry shampoos on the market (I love Dove's Refresh + Care Dry Shampoo).

  3. I only use dry shampoos when I straighten my hair (cause I keep it for 2-3 days), and I don't do that very often. I would say maybe 5-7 times in an entire year! And since I already have 2 dry shampoos at home (one from Ipsy) I don't see myself buying a new one anytime soon - although this one doesn't sound worth it anyway.

    1. Oh wow, I use dry shampoo all the time! So do you normally wash your hair every day?

    2. In the wintertime I usually style my hair every day, so yes I'll wash it every day. But in the summertime I'll often let it dry naturally then put it in a ponytail, so when I do that I can leave the wash for an extra day and just tie it up again.
