If you are interested in hair products, I'm sure you've heard of the Dry Shampoo With Oat Milk by Klorane, a product that reached cult status and won an Allure Best of Beauty Award. But did you know that Klorane actually makes three different dry shampoo sprays? Let's take a look at their differences and see which one you need!

Review of Klorane's 3 dry shampoo formulas: original Dry Shampoo with Oat Milk, Natural Tint and with Nettle for oil control.

Klorane Dry Shampoo with Oat Milk

This is the original formula, the one that bears the Allure award stamp. And it is, indeed, well worth the hype! The great thing about this dry shampoo is that it doesn't suck the life out of your hair like most drugstore formulas do: it doesn't make it look completely matte, like an 18th century powdered wig. Instead, it refreshes the roots and adds some volume and texture, without covering your natural shine completely. It gives you a lived-in, natural look and makes the hair more manageable, but people won't point at your head and say: "dry shampoo!!".

The powder it sprays out is white, but I don't have any problem getting rid of the "I dipped my head in flour" effect when I massage it into the roots. To me the scent is like classic hairspray, it's mostly pleasant and not so strong that I smell it all day long.

Best for: people who like to use dry shampoo to style, people who don't have super oily hair, guys and gals who don't like the full matte, powdery effect that most dry shampoos create.

Klorane Dry Shampoo with Oat Milk - Natural Tint

This is the exact same dry shampoo as the original formula, but with a slight tint supposed to avoid the white powder residue being visible in darker hair. To be honest, I don't think it's a game changer: I have medium brown hair that is at its darkest at the roots, and the light beige powder was as visible in my hair as the original white. The tint is just not dark enough to make a difference in my opinion. Plus, the white residue goes away if you massage or brush it in properly anyway. But then it's the same price as the original, so if white dry shampoos annoy you, you could give it a try!

Best for: same as the original plus people who want to try a tinted dry shampoo. The tint is so light that it would probably work for blonde hair!

Klorane Dry Shampoo with Nettle - Oil Control

This is the one for people with really oily roots, and a great tool to space out shampoos. It smells different from the other two, the scent is herbal and fresh, I really like it. That scent will also help refresh and mask the odor of natural oil in the hair (sounds gross, I know). Its finish looks more matte than the original formula, but that's what you need when your roots are greasy. It's super effective at absorbing the oil and making my hair look clean again, and the effect lasts for a couple days at least. I've used it on seriously oil, end of 3rd day hair, and to my surprise I could go another two days before washing (it was for the sake of testing this product's limits, guys)!

Best for: people with oily roots, those who want to add 2 or more days in-between their regular shampoo sessions.


Klorane dry shampoo's reputation is well deserved! The original formula is a great choice for a natural finish that doesn't look powdery, and the Nettle version is perfect for oily roots. With prices starting at $10 for the travel sizes, you can try it and decide if it is worth it for you. For me, the result is so much more natural than any of the drugstore products I've tried that the cost is justified!
