Used it for awhile, but didn't really like it. It does remove excess grease yes, but thing is I use styling products pretty much every day. I've tried to use it as a combination with my styling products(as seen from some youtube videos), but found that it doesn't work well. The powder makes the product sort of not adhere to my hair, hence affecting the hold. Well if you're looking to remove some excess oils, sea salt spray is able to do that for you too not to mention provide you with some hold and texture


has anyone ever opt for dry shampoo in this weather? is it any good?

I think it depends if your hair is oily or not?

Bcos previously when I don't style my hair, I use to shampoo my hair with high moisturizer shampoos.. Now after styling with hair products, I seem to develope oily scalp.. So I'm looking for those that is anti oily scalp shampoo lol
I do not wash my hair everyday(maybe every one and a half day cause I tend to have dry scalp if its washed too often). So I guess I was wondering about the dry shampoo option. But thanks alot for the advice!

Oh wow thanks alot for the info. Yup I was looking to remove the excess grease. Really wanted to see what are the options I have. Is sea salt spray another type of spray? or dry shampoo?

Sea salt spray is used mainly as a pre-styling product haha. Basically it's sea-salt/salt with water and other balancing ingredients such as humectants etc. Absorbing excess grease is one of its properties It also adds some hold and volume (can be massive, if used with a hair dryer). But, if you're one who usually doesn't use styling products on your hair, dry shampoo should be good for you.

However, I've heard that it can clog up the pores on your scalp, which might in turn lead to irritation or imbalance with your scalp, causing it to be dry etc. Personally haven't used it for long enough to tell though. But in terms of removing the excess grease and getting your hair to feel a little fresher, it does the job. Try it out and see if it works for you! I was using Klorane's dry shampoo during that period.

ok some flux review.

its not bad but i won't put it at strong hold.
maybe medium-strong hold.
but the texture and finishing of the product in your hair is pretty good.
really matte, similar to what a clay does.
very pliable. my hair is pretty short and it does hold it well the entire day.
since early afternoon till evening.

i wanna try the elevate tomorrow.

i think i might bring them in soon, 3rd quarter of 2016 likely or late 2nd quarter of 2016.

scentless, a yay for people who don't like scent.

Let me know how the elevate goes bro! Only tried the sample once, also found it to be not bad. Sometimes I feel our hair type (fine + limp) could do well with products that come with less hold. Might even work better because of the tendency for products like these to be more lightweight. Got to add too that Carter Supply Co products makes my hair feel somewhat smoother + healthier after usage

Define good leh. For some people water resistant is good what.

You dunno doesn't mean its not good leh. Must broaden your horizon a bit.
True. I define good as high hold plus easy to wash off because I don't want to keep shampoo 2 to 3 times.

Coz u spray onto hair some will escape into the air but if u close your hand abit and spray onto it then u can capture more.
