Stila Jade Blossom Hair Refresher Review

They say it's not good  to wash your hair everyday because you're stripping away it's natural oils. Well, I don't know if that's true or not, but I happen to like washing my hair. I do it everyday, every morning during Summer and in the afternoon during Winter. My hair gets extremely oily after 1 day without washing, and it feels gross. But I do understand the idea of dry shampoo to refresh the hair.

 I got to try dry shampoo for the first time. I tried the Stila Jade Blosson Hair Refresher. It did a great job in absorbing the oils in my hair and actually made my scalp feel fresh and smells good, which was quite nice. However, that feeling only lasted for 2 hours the most, and the at the end of the day my hair became oily again and felt a bit heavy. I don't think it's for me.

Stila Jade Blosson Hair Refresher $28 is a scented dry shampoo powder that absorbs oil in hair and scalp, making it look and feel fresh and washed again. It also adds volume and had a nice floral scent that makes your hair smell nice. It's not meant to take the place a regular shampoo and water, but it's great when you don't have the time to wash your hair or if you want to lengthen the time between washing your hair.

How I use it

Here's my day old hair. It looks and feels extremely oily and dirty. I don't like it.

I start on the top of my head. I part my hair to the side or middle. I sprinkle a little amount like in the photo.

Then, I massage my hair and scalp with my fingers. I repeat this step through out my hair.

I can see a big difference in the before and after photos. However, I don't like the feeling of the powder once it settled in my hair and scalp. I have nothing against this product, but I feel like dry shampoo is not for me. I like the idea, but I won't use it anytime soon. I'll stick to good ol' shampoo and water. Never fails.


  1. I tried washing my hair every other day for TWO YEARS, but at the end of it, my hair was still the same--the roots would get oily not 24 hours after washing. Now that I'm washing it everyday, I didn't really notice a difference; it didn't get drier or anything. So yeah, dry shampoo isn't for me either.

  2. I used to be able to wash my hair ever 2-3 days with no problem and without dry shampoo. Now it gets greasy after one day and I have no clue why. I'm still looking for a decent dry shampoo so I can get back into my old routine. :/

  3. Hmmm..interesting. I wanna try this one out and see if it will work on my hair. I also wash my hair everyday and I notice that when i don't it gets oily too. I hope this will on me.

  4. I've been so curious about dry shampoos for the longest time. Glad I never
    I don't think I need it, so I skipped dry shampoos. hehe
