I have two words, Primpers…
If you’re new to the magical world of dry shampoo, I’ll let you in on a little secret: It’s life-changingly amazing. Why? Well, dry shampoo will make your blow-dry last longer, keep oily hair looking sleek and clean for days on end, add volume to limp roots and give flat, baby-smooth hair some rock chick texture.
Due to all the aforementioned reasons (and a hundred more), hair brands are quickly releasing dry shampoos faster than you can say PERFECT HAIR. Let’s take a look at some of the latest, greatest must-buys.
Here’s the video…
And the notes…
1. Klorane Dry Shampoo, $12.50
Most likely to be the dry shampoo that everyone has heard of, or even used, this option is a winner in the volume stakes. Its ‘heavier’ formula does make it hard for a brunette like me though, as the white powder residue is a little harder to get out.
Use it if: You want a product that’s going to give you lots of volume and suck the life out of that oil. In a good way.
2. David Babaii Miracle Volume Instant Hair Volumising Powder, $19.95
David’s latest creation is pretty clever in that it’s a light-weight powder that you sprinkle in and watch as the magic happens. Again, it’s an oil-soaking product with the added bonus of volume and gets extra points for being free of silicones, sulphates, parabens and petrochemicals.
Use it if: You want a professional styling option that extends the life of your blow-dry, gives extra oomph and added texture.
3. Toni&Guy Prep Dry Shampoo, $15.99
Oh, this product smells amazing. This dry shampoo gets the serious thumbs up for its lack of white powder residue. As a brown haired lass, these things are important to me, and Toni&Guy’s powder is hardly even noticeable. Winner!
Use it if: You want 2 days of freshness in your roots without the slightest hint of powder.
Another professional styling option, this dry shampoo is great for texture. It gives super soft, limp hair (like mine) sudden cool girl grit, plus it’s great on the powder residue front, as well. You wouldn’t even know that I sprayed it in – you gotta love that.
5. Garnier Pure Volume Dry Shampoo, $8.95
My sample hasn’t arrived yet but I really wanted to include this new offering from Garnier in this post. Again, this formula has a three pronged approach to styling; working on texture, volume and oil reduction all at the same time. Clearly, this product is a stand-out on the pricing front, at only $8.95 it’s practically free.
Tell me Primpers…
