Dry shampoo, probably one of the best inventions ever known to woman. I for one could not be without a can of the stuff, a quick blast through the roots soon refreshes my greasy tresses whilst adding volume and texture, giving me an excuse for yet another one of those skip-the-whole-hair-wash kinda days (hey, we all have 'em!).
One that only gets whipped out for special occasions is Oribe's Dry Texturizing Spray (£18 75ml) purely because of its price and so every spritz is savoured - it even smells expensive! I tend to use it more as a styling product over an every-other-day dry shampoo, but its great to chuck in your clutch for a bit of sprucing up on a night out and seeing as its scent is identical to my fave fragrance YSL Elle, they make the perfect combo when worn together.
One for you sensitive scalp gals is Klorane's dry shampoo (£7.50 100ml) with softening and protecting oat milk. There is no other way to describe the smell other than plain 'clean', it doesn't linger too much and won't overrule your perfume. My head has been on the dry, flaky side of proceedings this Winter so I've been weary as to what products to use but this is still gentle enough to do the job.
Lastly, and best of the drugstore bunch for me is Tresemme's Instant Refresh (£4.79 200ml). It is heavily fragranced but unlike Batiste, it doesn't leave me feeling like I've got a scalp full of sand and seems to disappear into my blonde hair without a trace, although it does seem to leave a slight white cast in darker roots.
There we have it - an ode the saviours that are dry shampoos. I'm not saying you need all three in your stash but for price range and purposes, you can take your pick. The method is simple, just a case of a spritz and ruffle - fresh, clean locks without the full-on water wash? Yes please!
