More and more women are waking up to the benefits of using dry shampoo to reduce their number of hair washes. While you may want to reduce the number of times you wash your hair, having oily or greasy hair will be a problem. You have to wash your oily hair every day, albeit against your wish.
Hair wash is a problem because your schedule may be tight some days. Also, the amount of water used for a single hair wash session is an issue. You could make use of more than 2 liters of water to wash your hair. In a year, your oily hair could consume up more 500 liters of water.
Dry shampoo is a lifesaver. Once you apply it to your oily or greasy hair, it will absorb the excess oil and grease and keep your hairstyle in shape for up to 5 days. The application of this product takes only 5 minutes or less, and it does not require water. So, it saves you a lot of time and water. We are not surprised that women have embraced it quickly.
However, there’s one little problem. There are way too many brands of dry shampoos out there. And, quite frankly, choosing a good brand of dry shampoo has become so challenging. That’s why we test different dry shampoos and introduce good ones to you.
What’re the Differences Between Amika and Eva NYC Dry Shampoo?
As a matter of fact, these products have more similarities than differences. That’s why we can’t tell you that a particular one is better than the other. In fact, you’ll get the same results from both of them.
Both brands have several variants. And these variants are available at different prices. Overall, Eva NYC offers more affordable prices because its prices start from $10. On the other hand, Amika’s prices start at $20. So, you can say Eva NYC is much cheaper.
Both products come in various volumes from 1.05 – 6 oz. As you may already know, the higher the volume, the higher the price. We’ll advise you to choose the lowest volume for trials. When you decide on which one to choose, you can then go for a higher volume, which should be more cost-effective.
There’s no difference in application. According to their instructions, you’ll apply both dry shampoos the same way. Shake the can to make sure the ingredients mix up. Then, hold the can upright at a distance of 10 – 12 inches to your hair before you spray. When you hold it too near to your hair, the chances of leaving a white residue will be high. And you don’t want that.
You need to raise your hair as you spray the product to enable it to get to the roots. You have to target the roots because that’s where you’ll get the highest concentration of oil or grease. Spray your hair section by section. After that, massage the dry shampoo into your hair.
Leave it for about 3 minutes to penetrate your hair and get into your scalp. You can now brush or comb your hair before you style it. Once again, we’d like to remind you that the application instructions apply to both brands of dry shampoo.
Amika and Eva NYC dry shampoos are free of sulfates, parabens, talc, and phthalates. Also, they are both cruelty-free, so they are vegan-friendly. Nevertheless, there are slight differences in their lists of ingredients. So, we’ll list out their ingredients for you.
