(re)FRESH Dry Shampoo in Sweet Vanilla

This new dry shampoo works to lessens the greasy shine associated with post workouts and leaves hair refreshed with a subtle scent of soft vanilla. (re)FRESH Vanilla joins the Clean Breeze and Flower Power fragrances of the brand’s dry-shampoos collection. In addition to instantly getting rid of excess oil, (re)FRESH Vanilla uses starch to provide silkiness and safe oil absorption; adds texture and lift, creating that “second-day” look on clean hair; leaves hair feeling fresh and clean; and blends, leaving no white residue.
