Lush No Drought / Review

lush no drought dry shampoo

I live on dry shampoo. There, I said it. I am obsessed and it’s being sprayed on my roots on a daily basis. For the most part I use it to add some volume and texture to my locks but let’s face it – there is nothing better than refreshing the hair between washes. Who likes washing their hair every single day anyway? Not me, that’s for sure and that’s why I am constantly on a hunt for new dry shampoos to add to my stash. Having said that, when last year I spotted Lush No Drought (here) I got all excited and it made a swift jump in my shopping basket. Besides all my efforts to like it though, we just didn’t manage to bond and now it takes a primary spot in my ‘disappointing products list’. Allow me to explain…

The concept behind No Drought is pretty obvious – it’s a non-aerosol dry shampoo that helps absorb the excess oil and refresh the hair between washes by leaving it feel and look clean. Some of the main ingredients of the absorbing powder are cornflower, talk, magnesium carbonate and grapefruit & lime oils. They all help soak up the oil and the hair is left looking matte and visually clean. So far so good. The only problem, however, is that that ‘clean’ look lasts for thirty minutes maximum. After that my hair gets a lot more greasy and dirty that it initially was and it basically looks like I haven’t showered in a good week. Yuck! What’s more, No Drought does not give any volume and my hair always ends up looking flat and lifeless. Oh, and let’s not forget about the not-so-pleasant sticky feeling and white powdery residue that you get once you sprinkle some of the shampoo into your roots. What really irks me with this product also is how messy it is to use. Dusting it evenly throughout the hair is quite the challenge and no matter how careful I am the powder would still go all over my face and clothes. Not a fan.

I must say that No Drought does smell lovely and its citrusy scent is a great morning pick-me-up but I am afraid that it will have to be a ‘no’ from me, regardless. I will be sticking with my beloved Batiste for now and if you have any recommendations for a good dry shampoo, hit me up!

Have you tried Lush No Drought shampoo? How do you get along with it?

Lots of love,


  1. I use dry shampoo often! Its a shame this one didn't work well x

  2. I honestly don't think I could live without dry shampoo, I definitely agree who has time to wash their hair daily.. it's unhealthy for it anyway! Too bad this didn't work x

  3. i have not used this one...but i have really oily scalp i can never imagine my life without dry shampoo!

  4. I've tried this before and I agree, it really doesn't add any volume. What I found hardest, however, was the fact that it was in a regular bottle and not a spray. It makes application so hard!

  5. I have also tried this and I also think that it doesn't give volume also the bottle is not very easy to help apply the dry shampoo

  6. Try the dry shampoos from Klorane. They are excellent. Also very gentle to the scal as it is formulated with natural ingredients.

  7. I didn’t realise Lush had dry shampoo. I’m going to have to have a look at this. Most dry shampoos irritate my scalp.


  8. I don't get on with dry shampoo but the Bumble and Bumble pre-a-powder is great x

  9. I cannot live without dry shampoo. I have heard about Lush's dry shampoo but never really thought about giving it a go. Next time I am in Lush I think I might try it out.

  10. This sounds really nice! I definitely need to give this a go. x


  11. dry shampoo is such a great invention! I sometimes just use baby powder if I'm out. I've not tried this one yet but I'm not a huge fan of citrus scents, I'll go in and smell it next time I am around a lush! thanks for the review! xx. gigi. www.gigikkitchen.com

  12. That's a shame, I won't be picking this up then! Thanks for the review :)

  13. I do love this powder as a pick me up, but like you mentioned it isn't the best out there. I recently picked up the Bumble + Bumble Pret-a-Powder and am loving that it is a dry shampoo and a volumizing powder :)
