Oscar Blandi Pronto Dry Shampoo is one of the more popular dry shampoos out there. We took it for a test drive and after about a month of consistent use, we really like what we found. This dry shampoo is in the mid-price range. Please note this review applies only to the hair powder. This product is also available in spray format but the spray nozzle clogged quite a bit and I can’t really recommend it over the powder.
Oscar Blandi Pronto Dry Shampoo powder has a very fine texture so having a powdery look to your hair won’t be an issue, even if you are a brunette like me. As someone who doesn’t like to waste money, I try to go as long as possible between hair colorings and one way to preserve the color is to avoid excessive washing. On top of that, I don’t have much free time and I don’t like to spend what little time I do have blow drying my hair and then straightening it. This product solves both problems for me by enabling me to only wash and style my hair once every five days or so.
This product has a citrus scent which I find light and refreshing. The main ingredient is rice starch which is very natural. You only need to put a little bit at the roots and then brush it through, so one bottle could conceivably last a very long time. It doesn’t make your hair look dull or powdery and is pretty easy to blend as far as hair powder goes. It is also great for giving some volume to your hair. I’ve used it successfully for adding some lift when doing updos. It doesn’t provide as much volume as Schwarzkopf Osis Dust It Mattifying Powder but it definitely outperforms it in terms of grease-absorbing ability.
I will say that it’s not something you can use every day for a week because then it starts to build up and become more noticeable. I think even the laziest among us try not to go that long without washing our hair anyway.
One caveat: do not apply Oscar Blandi Pronto dry shampoo to wet hair or it will become clumpy. That is probably true for all dry shampoo but it’s something we discovered by accident.
