The down low on dry shampoos
Back in the day, you had no choice but to scrub up in the shower if your hair was looking limp and lifeless (thank goodness we weren’t around way back then!) These days, greasy hair is no obstacle in the plight to get glamorous – all you need is one of these fab dry shampoos…
1.) TRESemme Fresh Start Dry Shampoo
Why you’ll love it: Different to your run-of-the-mill dry shampoo, this multi-tasker spritzes on with a wet feel, allowing you to add texture and style to your locks. As the product dries, it simultaneously absorbs oil, and boosts root volume, giving you a fresh and funky look.
2.) Instant Rockstar Dirty Weekend Dry Shampoo for Light Hair and for Dark Hair
Why you’ll love it: With a cheeky name like that, you’ll be smirking every time you reach for this quick fix. The Dark Hair variant releases a dark powder (so you can avoid tell-tale ‘grey’ powder patches), while the Light Hair variant sprays clear, to help optimise shine and vibrancy in blonde hair.
3.) evo water killer dry shampoo
Why you’ll love it: With the tagline, ‘saving ordinary humans from themeselves’, this tongue-in-cheek company gets to the heart of most hair matters – and provides effective products to help! Its 2-in-1 dry shampoo and styling spray cleanses, refreshes and comes with a shine and hold factor to boot.
4.) Batiste Dry Shampoo in Boho and Diva
Why you’ll love it: Unlike other dry shampoos that are usually fragrance free, these babies deliver some deliciousness for your senses. Boho combines zesty notes of lemon, orange and passionflower with a heady mix of jasmine and lily, while Diva is a beautiful bouquet of violet, lily and jasmine, mingled with vanilla and musk. Plus, the bright colours will look fun and vibrant on your bathroom cabinet.
5.) Klorane Gentle Dry Shampoo
Why you’ll love it: Formulated using natural plant extracts and other environmentally friendly ingredients, you can rest assured that each time you spray, you’re not polluting the environment (or your scalp for that matter!). Containing oat milk, this wonder cleanser will help to calm and soothe a stressed or irritated scalp, while simultaneously reviving greasy strands.
