We put Klorane's Dry Shampoo With Oat Milk to the test after receiving a complimentary sample from the brand. Keep reading for our full product review. 

I used to wash my hair daily—or at least every other day. Once I began working from home, it hit me and I realized I had exactly no one to see and nowhere to go. I started washing my hair twice a week, tops. 

There were some immediate benefits to this: I cut down on how much time it took to get ready in the morning, I used less heat on my hair because I didn’t have to style it after a wash, and I used less water—something I always try to do when I can in an attempt to do my part to preserve the environment. 

One thing I didn’t love, though? When I was on day five without a wash and suddenly had to hop on a Zoom call only to realize that my hair had a very greasy, very flat look to it. Because I fully intend to keep my barely-washing-my-hair habit up even though I’m now vaccinated and seeing my friends again, I was extra excited to try the Klorane Dry Shampoo With Oat Milk, which promised to give my hair a clean, voluminous look when I needed it most.

Here’s how it worked for me.

About My Hair: A little frizzy and gets greasy by day three without a wash

I touch my hair a lot. It’s a nervous habit that I can’t seem to kick, and the result is a lot of strands falling out and hair that gets greasier more quickly than it would if I didn’t touch it. Dry shampoo is something I’ve always thought about, but never really committed to—and in a world where I now hardly ever wash my hair, the Klorane Dry Shampoo With Oat Milk seemed like the perfect solution.

The Feel: Light and doesn’t leave a residue

I’ve only dabbled in dry shampoo a few times, and the main thing I remember is that it left an annoying, stiff-feeling residue behind even if my hair looked OK. That wasn’t the case with the Klorane Dry Shampoo With Oat Milk. Maybe it’s the gentle ingredients it uses—oat milk, anyone?

After following the instructions exactly, (which included spraying the product into my hair, waiting two minutes, and then brushing it,) the Klorane Dry Shampoo With Oat Milk left no residue behind. 

The Packaging: Prone to getting banged up

This isn’t a criticism of the actual product, but the bottle of the Klorane Dry Shampoo With Oat Milk dented pretty quickly. Dents don’t really bother me, but if the aesthetics of your beauty products are important to you, this is something to keep in mind.

The Scent: Light and refreshing

I’m sensitive to the smell of anything I put in my hair because the scent tends to linger quite a bit. In other words, if I like the scent of a hair product, I’ll cling to it—and if I don’t, I may not use it again. The scent of the Klorane Dry Shampoo With Oat Milk wasn’t very strong, to begin with, but the mild scent I did detect was very light and refreshing.  

The Ingredients: Full of good stuff

Sure, the first ingredients of the Klorane Dry Shampoo With Oat Milk are butane and propane. But it’s also made with organically harvested oat milk (as an oat milk latte fan, this was extra exciting!), which promises to soothe and protect the hair and scalp, corn and rice starch for powerful cleansing action, and natural absorbent microspheres and silica, which promises to rid hair of excess dirt, oil, and odor. 

The Results: It gave my hair the boost it needed

I first tried the Klorane Dry Shampoo With Oat Milk right before heading out to dinner with a friend when I hadn’t washed my hair in a whopping five days. My plan had been to just wear it up (this is what I tend to do by day four), but after giving my hair a quick spray and brushing it after waiting the required two minutes, I was pleased to discover that it didn’t look like I had just washed and heat-styled it, but that it had some extra volume, too.

The Value: Excellent

At $20 for 3.2 oz, the Klorane Dry Shampoo With Oat Milk is in line with most of the shampoos I’ve purchased in my life, which tend to cost between $20 and $30. While I don’t have any intention of fully replacing my shampoo with it, it’s an excellent product to have in a pinch.

Similar Products: You've got options

Living Proof Dry Shampoo ($26): The only other dry shampoo I’ve used consistently is from Living Proof, at $26 for four ounces. With similar results, a bit more residue, and the inability to brag about using oat milk in your hair (a big deal in 2021!) I would opt for Klorane’s dry shampoo every time. 

Final Verdict

Yes, the Klorane Dry Shampoo With Oat Milk is great for anyone less than enthused about the idea of washing their hair daily. But it’s also an excellent option for anyone dealing with dull-looking, flat hair who wants a quick boost without washing and styling their hair.
