If you've been reading my blog for a while, you probably know that I'm a dry shampoo junkie (oily hair and skin + sideswept bangs means I go through dry shampoos like water). I have reviewed many, many drugstore dry shampoos on this blog over the years, but this year my game has been slipping. There are so many new-for-2014 dry shampoos at the drugstore that I can barely keep up!

I will be reviewing both of the new-for-2014 Suave dry shampoos in the near future, and I'll probably review at least one of the three new Pantene dry shampoos soon as well. Today, I'm reviewing one of the three new Herbal Essences dry shampoos.  I haven't been able to find the Body Envy Dry Shampoo in my area yet and, unfortunately, I won't be reviewing the Color Me Happy Dry Shampoo because I strongly disliked the scent (sorry). So let's take a look at Naked, which is the third new dry shampoo formula from Herbal Essences:
 My greasy, disgusting bangs after two days without shampooing.
 Immediately after applying Herbal Essences Naked Dry Shampoo.
After working Herbal Essences Naked Dry Shampoo into my roots,
and then combing my bangs into place.

I found this dry shampoo at my local Target a while back and the first thing that drew me to this can was the sleek packaging. I don't know why, but I love the matte white finish on the bottle and I love the clean, simple graphics:

Most dry shampoos contain a key ingredient that absorbs oil. The most common oil-absorbing ingredients in drugstore dry shampoos seem to be rice starch (Batiste and got2b), aluminum starch octenylsuccinate (Dove, Suave, Psssst! and TRESemme) and tapioca starch (Herbal Essences and Pantene).

Personally, dry shampoos that contain rice starch tend to work the very best for my oily hair (which is probably why some of  my favorite dry shampoos of all-time are Batiste and got2b). I also have had good luck with products that use aluminum starch indoctrinate (I adore Suave Professionals Dry Shampoo). But I can't recall ever using a dry shampoo with tapioca starch before (I may have, but I just can't remember it since I've used so, so many dry shampoos over the years).
