Battle of the Dry Shampoos:: Herbal Essence ‘Naked Volume’ vs. ‘Color Me Happy’

I use a lot of dry shampoo… and when I say a lot, I mean a lot.  As in I go through a bottle every two-three weeks.  What can I say, I don’t like to wash my hair, it gets super oily and I have a lot of it!   As with any brand, you love some things, you hate some things.  I picked up several items from the Herbal Essence Naked collection a few months ago and I am close to finishing them up.  I don’t like to write reviews about hair and skin care until I’ve used it for a good while because I often think something is great and halfway through it takes a turn.

Anywho we are here today to talk about two different types of dry shampoo Herbal Essence has available in the US.  The ‘Naked Volume’ and the ‘Color Me Happy’.


Naked Volume 


The Herbal Essence Website:: refresh your strands, water not necessary. with natural tapioca, my formula absorbs oil and rejuvenates dirty hair for a clean feeling. invigorate your strands with the scent of white grapefruit and mint and feel naturally beautiful without parabens or dyes. 

This smells amazing!  It has a refreshing citrus and mint scent that sprays on clear!! This is an amazing feat if you are a connoisseur of  Dry Shampoo like I am becoming.  This also gives my hair volume which is also hard to come by in a dry shampoo that also gets rid of oil. I have found in my quest that with most dry shampoos you get one or the other, not both.  It is a bit tacky but I expect that from a volumizer.  I have gone through 3 bottles of this and it seems hard to find at my local drugstores.  When I do find it I buy two.

Color Me Happy 


The Herbal Essence website:: wake up and smell the roses! or at least our tempting rose essences. refresh your hair with our color-protecting dry shampoo formula to get a first-day clean feel and tantalizingly fresh fragrance…no water needed. our natural tapioca will take care of extra oil any time of day, so feel free to use whenever you want to perk up your style without starting over.

Ok so this has a nice scent but I wouldn’t exactly call it rose, more floral.  The accompanying shampoo and conditioner have more of a rose scent.  While this did give me a little volume (not as much as Naked Volume) it didn’t do much for my oily hair. Also while not as bad as some it does leave my dark brown hair with a white cast.  It is OK in my book and if I had the choice between this and some others I’ve tried this is better than nothing but definitely not the best.

So who wins the battle of the Dry Shampoo’s this round?  The prize belongs to ‘Naked Volume’

♣ Sprays Clear

♣ Refreshing Scent

♣ Revives Oily Hair

♣ Gives Volume and Lift

♣ Reasonably Priced
