Hask Monoi Coconut Dry Shampoo Review

Hask says "Removing excess oil is now easier than lather, rinse and repeat. Skip a wash or extend the life of your style with this lightweight, coconut infused formula that will leave your second day hair even fresher than the first. Ultra-fine rice starch acts quickly to soak up oil, sweat and odor leaving hair bouncy, vibrant and clean. The tropical escape your hair has been waiting for!" The Monoi Coconut Dry Shampoo is part of Hask's new 5 piece dry shampoo range that's sold exclusively at Ulta in the US, and Kmart here in Aus. Each can of Hask Dry Shampoo contains 184g (6.5 fl oz) and sells for $7.99US/$12AUD. Hask products are cruelty free and American made.

I was immediately attracted to Hask's new dry shampoos - their tall pastel packaging is complete eye candy. The front of the aluminum bottle offers the product name and Hask logo, with more information, including directions and ingredients, following on the back. All packaging is recyclable.

My first experience with Hask's Dry Shampoo was disappointing to say the least, and left me feeling hesitant to try the Monoi Coconut Dry Shampoo. Fortunately, my experience was a complete 180, and I quite like it! Hask's Monoi Coconut Dry Shampoo sprays out in a dry, colorless, fine mist that seems to get soaked up immediately. Though Hask recommends letting this dry shampoo sit in the hair for half a minute, I tend to let it sit for at least two or three minutes before massaging it in and brushing it though. The end results are pretty nice - this rice starch and charcoal based dry shampoo absorbs most of the excess oil that builds up in my roots and bangs, mattifying my hair without making it look dull or saturated with product. Hask's Monoi Coconut Dry Shampoo creates a bit of volume in the hair - enough to lift previously lifeless and greasy hair away from the scalp, but I wouldn't rely on this dry shampoo as a texturizing or volumizing spray - it's much more of a 'convenience' product than a styler. Like all of Hask's products, the Monoi Coconut Dry Shampoo has a fantastic fragrance - I'm not typically a fan of coconut scents, but this tropical and floral coconut and gardenia scent is divine.

Hask's Monoi Coconut Dry Shampoo is nice! I wouldn't call it the best dry shampoo I've ever tried, but it more than adequate - especially compared to the exceptionally disappointing Chia Seed Volumizing Shampoo. If you're looking to try a new dry shampoo that offers a little volume and effective oil absorption, the Monoi Coconut Dry Shampoo is a reasonably priced choice.
