Hask Chia Seed Volumizing Dry Shampoo Review

Hask Chia Seed Volumizing Dry Shampoo Review
Hask says "skip a wash and extend your style with this lightweight, chia seed infused formula to transform hair from lifeless to voluminous. Ultra-fine rice starch acts quickly to soak up oil, sweat and odor leaving hair big, bouncy and clean. Amping up your beauty routine has never been this easy!". One of five new dry shampoos from Hask, the Chia Seed Volumizing Dry Shampoo contains 184ml (6.5 fl oz) and retails for $7.99 at Ulta. Hask's products are cruelty free and made in America.

I was immediately drawn in by this dry shampoo's pretty pastel packaging. Hask's Chia Seed Volumizing Dry Shampoo comes in a tall lilac aerosol can that looks too good on my bedside table. While the front of the can simply lists the product name, plenty of information can be found on the reverse, including directions for use an a fully ingredient list. All packaging is recyclable.

Unfortunately, the packaging is my favorite thing about Hask's Chia Seed Dry Shampoo. This rice starch based dry shampoo (typically my favorite kind) sprays out in a fine, white mist - and it stays that way. This superfood infused dry shampoo is fairly wet at first, but quickly dries down to a slightly tacky finish that can make my hair a bit difficult to manage and style. Despite being labeled as a volumizing dry shampoo, I've never noticed any additional volume while using Hask's Chia Seed Dry Shampoo. This dry shampoo is equally as ineffective at absorbing oil as it is at adding volume - it doesn't sop up oil or mattify my hair in the slightest. Whether applied the night before, or minutes before I head out the door, my bangs stay separated and my roots stay greasy and flat. If it wasn't for the resulting white tinge that remains on my scalp and the slight stickiness it leaves behind, I wouldn't even remember that I'd used a dry shampoo. If I had to compliment Hask's Chia Seed Dry Shampoo on one thing, it's the soft and pleasant floral tea scent, which is just fragrant enough to cover that greasy hair smell without being overpowering.

The Chia Seed Volumizing Dry Shampoo is easily the most disappointing product that I've tried from Hask. I've almost finished the can, and I can confidently said I wouldn't repurchase or recommend this failed product - but I wouldn't write off their entire dry shampoo range due to one bad seed (I have another review coming up that's got quite a different tone from this one!). Hask makes plenty of great, affordable hair care products, but this is not one of them.
