Oscar Blandi Dry Shampoo VS J&J Baby Powder

I’m back with a HighEnd product VS a DrugStore product. 

Almost everyone knows the secret of rubbing baby powder in your hair to soak up the oil and put off washing your hair for another day. But does it work? 

Oscar Blandi Dry Shampoo pronto (powder) gets raves reviews but is it really worth it? 

Click down below to see what I think about the two as dry shampoos

I received Oscar Blandi Dry shampoo in Powder version as a gift for my birthday last year. I liked it well enough. It smelled great! It has a lite lemon scent. It comes in form of a white powder. You put a little on your hands then rub into your hair. You really only need to apply it to your roots. You have to really rub it in or it leaves your hair with a grey look at the roots. 

Baby Powder has many uses, but one other than using it on babies you can use it as a dry shampoo. It’s also a white powder, has a clean powdery scent. The same applies to the Baby Powder you must only apply it to the roots and really rub the stuff in. 

If I held the two powders side by side they look exactly the same. The only way you could tell the powders apart is by the smell.  I find that they work just as good as the other one. 

My advice if you know the night before that you won’t be washing your hair apply either the dry shampoo powder or the baby powder to your hair. You could use a little more then you would use say if you used it in the morning. Through the night the white fades away from your hair as it absorbs the oil. 

VERDICT: Oscar Blandi Dry Shampoo sells for $19 at Sephora and Ulta while J&J Baby powder sells for anywhere from $1 to $4. So I have to say it’s obvious that the Baby Powder fits in a college budget while the Oscar Blandi Dry Shampoo isn’t in the budget. Another piece of advice is don’t waste your money on Dry shampoo just use Baby Powder and a hat.

    One smell I hate is the scent in baby powder. I don't know why, I just don't like it. But, I never heard a suggestion of doing it the night before. I like that idea! Will definitely try it out next time. I've never tried the other one. It always seemed too pricey to me too. I do buy high end makeup but not so much high end dry shampoos.
