Review of Caviar (Alterna) Dry Shampoo



Free of parabens, sulfates, phthalates & synthetic colour. Travel size.


Makes my hair grey/white. Hard to “distribute” evenly in hair.


This dry shampoo from Caviar, Alterna comes in powder-form in a handy plastic bottle with 75g. I like that the bottle is small enough to have in carry-on luggage when travelling – most dry shampoos doesn’t comply with this, and it’s especially when I’m travelling that I need my dry shampoo nearby.

To apply the dry shampoo powder, you take off the top and press or shake the bottle so that the powder comes out. This is a bit hard to do because the powder tends to come in “lumps” and, hence, is not distributed evenly. Furthermore, my hair is brown and the powder is white. This means that if I apply a bit too much or do not even it out, the dry shampoo will colour my hair grey/white, which doesn’t look good!!! This has happened to me more than a couple of times and it’s really annoying because I can’t just brush it out, it really sits there, making me look like I’ve got grey hair…

A little trick: I’ve started applying the dry shampoo in the evening before I go to sleep. Then it gets “rubbed in” my scalp over night and the risks of getting grey hair is smaller.

It promises to refresh and re-energise my hair without water – I would say that it could do a better job doing just that.

Overall, I like that it comes in a small bottle and that it’s free from all kinds of bad ingredients, however, I don’t like that it’s so hard to distribute evenly to hair, and that it colours my hair grey. I would probably not get it again.


Overall: starstarstarnostarnostar

Value for money: starstarnostarnostarnostar

Does what it promises: starstarstarnostarnostar
