TRESemme Volumizing Shampoo vs. CVS beauty 360 Dry Shampoo

We think this a a good dupe for the way our hair felt after and the way they both cleaned the oil.  If you are smell sensitive, beware: the CVS version smells pungent, while TRESemme has a light grapefruit smell.  

CVS beauty 360 would be a great buy if not for the smell!

Brandefy compares store brands (i.e. CVS) to name brands (i.e. TRESemme) to show you when the store brand is as good as the name brand, and to warn you when it is not. Our purpose is to help you save time and money, and to have a good time while doing it. Check out our ratings page to get a quick view of how store brands stack up.

One Brandefyer has a big trip coming up, so we decided to equip her for those long days when she will need to freshen up between activities.  We have been dying to try out some dry shampoo, so we picked these up at CVS and headed back to the lab.

We read the instructions carefully, and did half our heads with one spray and half with the other.  It should be noted that the TRESemme can had step-by-step instructions with images, which made it very simple to follow.  Both sprays went on easily, felt light weight, and combed through our hair nicely.

We then smelled our hair, and found that the TRESemme smelled much better than the beauty 360 version.  Neither spray had an extremely strong smell, but the TRESemme spray had a light citrus smell, and the CVS version had a slight pungent, alcoholic smell.  After comparing ingredients, we noticed that TRESemme includes grapefruit and citrus peel in their spray.  We feel confident you will prefer the smell of the TRESemme dry shampoo.  The other ingredients are fairly similar between the two.  This is likely why they both did a nice job cleaning our hair.

We recommend you have a nice smelling head and stick with TRESemme!
