Glo Essentials Re-Energize Dry Shampoo

Up for review today is Re-Energize dry shampoo in Brunette from Glo Essentials. I usually steer clear of dry shampoos as they tend to give me that "powdered wig" look because I have dark hair. This one, however,  is made specifically for brunettes like me and contains NO talc! (don't worry, if you have light hair Glo also makes a colorless dry shampoo)
I went without washing my hair for a few days, lets pretend it was specifically to test this product and not because I'm lazy, okay?
As you can see in the photo below, my hair was starting to get a little greasy looking.

Per the instructions, I sprayed on the dry shampoo and then brushed my hair after waiting a few minutes. I could really feel the difference, the shampoo soaked up the excess oil and made my hair look and feel much cleaner. It smelled freshly washed, too. I didn't look like I had JUST washed my hair, but I certainly looked like I had washed it the day before (not ::cough:: three days ago). This is a great product to extend your time between shampoos.. like if you are traveling or wanting to extend a great salon blow-out before washing.
It is certainly the best dry shampoo I have used for my dark hair, the only one that has been completely invisible after use. As an extra bonus, like all Glo Essentials products this shampoo is free of parabens and sulfates.
I was lucky enough to be provided with some Glo products for review at the International Beauty Show, so this is the first of several I'll be featuring. I've been really happy with everything I've tried so far.. the products are all so effective and beyond salon-quality! But more on that later.. You can find this and other Glo products at
Do you use dry shampoos regularly?
Thank you so much for reading!
All the best,

Disclosure: This product was provided to me by PR for review. As always, I am committed to giving you my honest opinion. :o)


  1. I've had alot of trouble with my Dry Shampoo flaking out well after I brush it out. It just looks like I have dandruff. Any ideas or tips for long haired ladies and where to actually spray it on?

    1. Well what is nice about this one is that it goes on brown, not white. I apply it from about 8 inches away from my head, lifting up sections to spray it on at the roots. That is what I do, anyway, and my hair is super long!

  2. This is really helpful, thank you. I have never tried a dry shampoo before because my hair gets so oily! I wash it everyday or every other day tops, but then I also have to flat iron it every time so I hate doing it haha. I have really dark brown hair too, so the idea of it just never seemed to spark my interest... but now it has! :)
