Living Proof Perfect Hair Day Dry Shampoo, 198ml, £19.00

WHY WE LOVE IT

This has a lovely fresh scent and more importantly doesn’t leave a white cast on dark hair!  Easy to use and as a bonus gives a little volume to the roots too.

Perfect hair Day (PhD) Dry Shampoo is ideal for all hair types. It is silicone-free. Safe and formulated for colour and chemically treated hair.

“I thought I would upgrade from my normal dry shampoo to something a little pricier in the hope that it doesn’t leave a cast on my hair – the trade off worked!  Feels lighter and easier to use than other brands and efficiently degreases my oily roots.”

Batiste Dry Shampoo Original, 200ml, £2.99

WHY WE LOVE IT

The original and some say the best dry shampoo!  Once sprayed, dries quickly and brushes out easily.  Eliminates oil leaving hair looking fresh and clean.

“For me, this is the original and best dry shampoo. Grease is nuked and the powder spray gives a lovely dry matte texture for some good back combing that really helps conceal jaded hair that could do with a wash pronto.”

Aussie Miracle Dry Shampoo Aussome Volume, 180ml, £4.69

WHY WE LOVE IT

Instantly freshens up your hair.  Gives masses of volume and texture whilst leaving no white residue.  Great for extending that wash cycle for a day or two.

“Occasionally use this to lift roots if hair is dull and flat needing a “zhush” .  I am not a connoisseur of dry shampoo and have found this one does the job, although the perfume is quite overpowering. Not a horrible smell, just rather strong”

COLAB Paradise Dry Shampoo, 200ml, £3.50

WHY WE LOVE IT

Not only does this dry shampoo smell lovely, it is also brilliant at eliminating grease.  Instantly refreshes your hair without any residue.

“This is one of the only high street/drugstore dry shampoos that doesn’t leave white specks in my dark brown hair. And the smell is lovely as a bonus, can always smell it throughout the day when I’ve used it.”

Batiste Dry Shampoo Dark & Deep Brown, 200ml, £3.99

WHY WE LOVE IT

Just when you thought Batiste couldn’t get any better…it released this for all the brunettes out there!   Gives body and texture to hair while eliminating greasy roots.  Added bonus – it will also cover any grey roots.  Best applied in the bathroom so as not to cover your best furnishings in brown mist.
