Dry Shampoos: The Best & Worst

Dry Shampoo

Dry shampoo has become incredibly popular over the last few years and is a great alternative to washing your hair if you have no time to jump in the shower, if you're off to a festival or simply want to spread out the time between washes like myself. I have incredibly greasy hair and I'm lucky if I can go 2 days without washing it, sometimes I can stretch to 3 days but it's rare. So because of this I've tried many dry shampoos to see if I can spread out the time between washes. Here are the best & worst dry shampoos I've tried..

Aussie Miracle Dry Shampoo Aussome Volume
Starting with the worst of the bunch, I had high hopes for this dry shampoo from Aussie but what a disappointment this was! It did absolutely nothing to my hair, it still looked a greasy mess and volume? What volume? My hair was still as flat as a pancake. Not only that, I only used it a few times and now the spray won't work and when you shake the bottle, it sounds as if the product has just turned to water. I would definitely NOT recommend this!!

COLAB Dry Shampoo
A good dry shampoo if you're on a budget and it also does not leave any residue whatsoever. It leaves my hair feeling clean but my hair can still look a bit greasy and flat with no volume whatsoever. It's all good having my hair feel clean but I'd like it to look nice too, I don't want to go outside looking like a hobo! These comes in a whole range of scents too, I had Rio & London and they are lovely but I probably won't be buying these again.

Batiste Dry Shampoo
I never used to get along with Batiste, it just didn't do anything. Recently, however it has been doing a great job with my hair! Leaving it look clean and refreshed and also slightly volumised. The only downside? The residue it can leave behind. You really have to make sure you work this into your hair as going out with grey patches on your hair? Not a good look!!

Herbal Essences Dry Shampoo Ignite My Colour
The newest of the bunch is this dry shampoo from Herbal Essences. This one is especially for coloured hair and is said to 'ignite' your colour, I wouldn't say this makes any difference to my coloured hair. However it is a good dry shampoo and actually leaves my hair with a bit of volume and texture whilst looking and feeling clean. It also smells gorgeous too! Always a bonus.

Macadamia Oil Flawless Cleansing Conditioner
Technically not a 'dry' shampoo as you have to apply it to wet hair and rinse. However it is my favourite! It's the closest thing to properly washing your hair, it leaves your hair feeling clean, refreshed and looking lovely. It can however leave it feeling a bit weighed down which is a bummer but I can live with that. It's also more expensive than dry shampoos are however it lasts a really long time so it's definitely worth it!

What's your favourite dry shampoo?

  1. Who doesn't love a good dry shampoo?! I'm quite loyal to batiste but I usually apply it the night before to avoid the grey patches as I have dark hair so it can make my hair look very white! I was using the brunette batiste for a while but it left brown marks all over my face (not a good look). I haven't tried any of the others you mentioned but I've used Tony & Guy before and quite liked it x
