Overall Opinion:

Captain Blankenship Mermaid Dry Shampoo works to refresh and restyle hair, but the result it gives is not worth the difficulty it takes to use.

This dry shampoo is so difficult to apply; it got all over my bathroom when I was trying to use it and I literally had to change my clothes because the powder ended up all over me.

Not only is the product a huge mess, but you waste about half the product you apply every time you use it because there is no way to control how much product dumps out of the bottle. I even tried pouring it into my hand first but that actually made it more difficult than before.

It also got stuck in my scalp and it took me forever to get the white stain off of my scalp.

This product is also expensive, and although it did last 9 hours, I don’t think this dry shampoo is worth the price tag.

Overall, I didn’t like this dry shampoo. These products are supposed to be quick and easy to use in your hair and this one was not easy or quick to use.

Detailed Opinion:

Look and Feel

The look of the Captain Blankenship Mermaid Dry Shampoo is a highly pigmented, thin powder.

It feels a bit grainy when you first apply it to your hair and it makes my hair feel somewhat dirty.

I really didn’t like the way this looked or felt when I first applied it into my hair.

Application/Ease of Use

Captain Blankenship Mermaid Dry Shampoo is very, very difficult to use and apply.

The applicator on this dry shampoo is a twisty top that has two little sections you can pour the product from, one bean sized hole and another hole with little dividers to spread the product out a bit.

Both little holes you can pour product from do the exact same thing, dump a massive amount of product on to your hair in one section. This applicator gives you absolutely no control so you end up with way too much dry shampoo and no way to disperse it into your hair.

After I had a few mounds of product in my hair, I went to brush it and blend it out and the product got absolutely everywhere. I had powder on my clothes, I had powder in my eyes, and I had powder stuck in my scalp. It was such a mess!!

Once it was brushed through my hair, it took me approximately 10 minutes to try and scrape out the white powder that was basically glued to my scalp. It was actually kind of painful.

Drying Time

This product is a total dry formula, as it comes in powder form.

Smell (Initially)

I can’t stand the smell of this dry shampoo. It reminds me of a very mature perfume, which I personally don’t enjoy.

Smell (Over Time)

The smell lasts in your hair all day long, staying potent through the whole day.

The Results

The results I achieved from Captain Blankenship Mermaid Dry Shampoo were okay, but not worth the hassle of using this product.

This product does what it claims to do, it absorbs the oil from your hair and adds a bit of texture and volume.

Although this product worked, it was a total trade of having to spend way too long to make it work.

How Long It Lasts

This product lasted about 9 hours before any oil started to peak through again.


Captain Blankenship Mermaid Dry Shampoo is 2.4 oz for $24.00, which comes out to $10.00 per oz.

This is a pricier dry shampoo, and the worst part about it is you don’t get very much product and you waste so much of it because the product dumps out way too much every time.
