The Antidote

I have truly made my mind up about the Macadamia Flawless 'effort' that I posted a few weeks ago.  I hate it.  It weighs down my hair and creates bad results 99% of the time I use it.  There has been an occasional 'fluke' time that the results have been good but even then they're pretty average.  I hate it when a product is bad :(

Introducing the antidote to dull, flat, lifeless hair and this you'll be pleased to know is an absolute LOVE! 

Having tried many aerosol dry shampoos and style refreshers I haven't been overly 'wowed'  by any of them.  Percy & Reed came close but I find those aerosols don't last two minutes on hair my length and thickness.  I hadn't tried a powder form before but I have to say I'm more than converted! The Bumble and bumble Pret-a-Powder is divine! 

It looks as though you don't get much in the little bottle, but you don't need a lot for great results. I've used this quite a few times now and there's still tonnes left. 

The tiny little hole in the bottle means you don't get too much out and you can shake it in your hair quite precisely.  You massage into the hair as you would a shampoo, then I tend to give it a little bit of a brush to distribute things nice and evenly.  It smells really good, subtle is the word I would use.  

The results are hair that feels much more bouncy and 'lifted' and it soaks up grease and lank roots verrry well (nicely created by the Macadamia Flawless!!) 

This is good stuff people! If you're after a new dry shampoo / texturiser hybrid, this is your one. 

Not much more to report in my world currently.  Still trying desperately to train the dog (it's now refusing to go to toilets on walks - she's a fussy little thing!!) and the other half and myself are currently fixing up the garden and dining room so that we can at last have people over to our house and do a little entertaining!  I'll pop some pictures up when I'm done although we're far from that point at the moment!

Oooooh I'm loving this track at the moment too - little music recommendation for you.  Forgive Me by Joel Compass.  Played best blasting through the speakers in your car with your shades on! :) 

That's all folks!

  1. I have just bought this too-but I still haven't tried it yet! The Bumble and Bumble Blondish Hair Powder is fab for adding oomph/grit/texture/oil absorption but they price tag is erm pricey! Hope this is a good substitute!

    1. Bumble and Bumble are a bit on the pricey side, I wish they were just a tad more inexpensive to be honest, I'd probably try more of their products! I like the sound of the Blondish Hair Powder, must try! :) x

  2. the one time i tried dry hair shampoo, i wasn't sure if it liked it.. but i love b&b products so I'll have to give this one a try! great review :)


    1. Hi Sher, it's great for a little pick me up to hair :) x

  3. This sound really lovely Lis! I will definitely check it out! I could use some extra volume!
    By the way, I remember you asking recommendations for higher end shampoos and conditioners... Have you tried Phyto products? I love them! I adore the phytokeratine shampoo and the volumizing spray! Holy grail material! :-)
    Your hair always look lovely!
    Good evening Lis! :-)

    1. Oooh I actually did have some Phyto products a few years ago and they were really great! Good call! I'm going to purchase that little pair now! Thanks Anne! And huuuuuge apologies for the late reply, just catching up with my blogs now :)

      Hope you're well :)

  4. Have you tried Oribe? If not, it will totally change your life :)

    1. I definitely need some Oribe in my life....on the wish list next time I'm near a Space NK :) xx
