When your hair is calling for a thorough cleansing, use Beauty Protector’s Protect & Shampoo.

Beauty Protector

Birchbox Breakdown

The hairstylists behind Beauty Protector have a long (and silky and shiny) history of helping us achieve beautiful locks, and they’ve succeeded yet again with this win-win of a dry shampoo. It rids your second-day (or, er, third-day) hair of excess oil as it conditions, adding life to your locks without weighing them down. You’ll be tempted to skip the shower more often—as well you should.

How it Works

Made with waterless cleansers like natural clay, this formula absorbs excess grease and adds volume to limp hair without leaving behind a powdery residue. Coconut conditions strands, while minerals add extra luster.

How to Use

Shake vigorously before use. Holding can 10 to 12 inches away, spray into dry hair, focusing on the roots. Comb through with fingers to dispense evenly.

Propane, Butane, Alcohol Denat, Isobutane, Aluminum Starch Octenylsuccinate, Cyclopentasiloxane Isopropyl Myristate, Stearalkonium Hectorite, Propylene Carbonate, Fragrance/ Parfum.

So good!

Today I threw this in my yoga bag to try after bikram, which leaves my hair a sweaty mess. I waited until my hair had air dried, and then I sprayed this in my hair, focusing solely on my roots and hairline. Let me just say: THIS STUFF IS FANTASTIC! Not only did it absorb the extra oil without leaving a white, yucky-feeling residue, but it actually added shine back into my hair and made it look like it was freshly washed. Protect and Refresh dry shampoo has earned a permanent spot in my bag! This stuff is the best dry shampoo I've ever tried!

*disclaimer: it doesn't smell yummy like the rest of the Beauty Protector line (actually it doesn't really smell like anything much at all) but that's okay because sometimes I feel like dry shampoo smells can be too overwhelming and I end up washing my hair to get the smell out.

This brand is the best

Honestly, everything Beauty protector makes is a hit. I got this for my July add-on and, like everything else this brand makes, I truly love this! No white powder to worry about and leaves your hair feeling better on that second (or third) day hair. A necessity for my daily routine now :)

My favorite dry shampoo!

I've tried MANY dry shampoos - from drugstore to high end. This one is by far the best! It doesn't leave any kind of residue or tackiness that I've experienced from other dry shampoos. It smells amazing and removes all excess oil and really makes my hair feel clean. I didn't think dry shampoos could actually make my hair feel CLEAN. I will definitely be repurchasing! I just wish it wasn't so pricey. I'll be banking up my BB points for this. :)

I'd buy it again

I bought this as an add-on and I was very excited to try it because I love Protect & Defend so much. I don't get the same smell that other reviewers do, in fact, I don't think it has much of a smell at all. This is good to use for day after washing, but to use it to extend a wash another day or two would really be cutting it close. I use it in conjunction with a hair powder, in that I put a hair powder in at night, let it soak in overnight and then use this throughout the next day or 2 to refresh my hair. Using it for solely that purpose, I think it does a great job.

Product good, packaging horrid

I loved this dry shampoo when I first got it. No strong smell, works great, no problems! Except that I put it on my shelf for a week, and when I went to use it this weekend the nozzle stopped working. Basically it no longer sprays the shampoo like hairspray, if you press down just a little comes out and it's not a spray.

I love Beauty Protector and I think this is a great product, but they need to seriously re-examine their packaging on this one. Hopefully mine was an isolated incident but I'm super sad because I only got to use my $18 product once!

Can't Get Enough!!

I cannot get enough of the beauty protector products. I own them all and will continue to purchase them!! I am a huge proponent of dry shampoo and this one is amazing! It doesn't leave that white film in your hair but does the job perfectly!

Best Choice for the Birchbox Plus

It works just as well as I would expect and the price is definitely worth the quality. I have blonde hair and it tends to be oily, but this is the perfect solution!

My First!

This was my first time trying dry shampoo - I bought it as an add on to my box. I really like this product. It made my hair feel fresh and gave it an extra lift in the morning. Who doesn't want that? I have red hair so I've always been hesitant to use a dry shampoo since they seem either really light in color or really dark, neither of which fit my hair. This one immediately absorbed and there was no sign of it other than my fresh and bouncy hair. Love!

Pretty good

I have never tried a dry shampoo before, so this one gave a great first impression. It leaves no powder or residue. The only thing is it didn't really soak up that much oil. I'm not sure if I should use more product next time, or if I'd be better off just washing it.
