What’s not to love about summer? The heat, festivals, parties and beachside breaks always make for a great time of year. But with so many things on your plate it can be difficult to keep your hair looking clean and fresh on the go.
Fortunately I had the pleasure of reviewing several dry shampoos so you can keep your hair looking first day fresh all summer long.
Rockaholic Dirty Secret Dry Shampoo
As soon as I sprayed this on my hair I was reminded of body sprays I used to have as a child – it has a citrusy sherbet scent that kept my hair smelling great all day long. The dry shampoo sprayed on evenly, while the nozzle gave great coverage. A quick spray, massage and brush later my hair looked almost like freshly washed hair – there was absolutely no grease or dirt to be seen! Once brushed, my hair was left feeling light, clean and natural – exactly what you need to get from that late night to your next wash. Have coloured hair? Then give this dry shampoo a try as it boasts the ability to extend the life of your colour.
Catwalk by Tigi
This dry shampoo had a wonderful clean scent when first applied, with the added bonus of being odour-free once brushed away – perfect if you don’t want your perfume to mix with other scents. While it felt like I had to use a little more of this dry shampoo to get good coverage, the result were well worth it. With a blend of rose and sandalwood to help condition hair this product has exactly what you need for party ready hair: it adds volume and texture, smoothes flyaways and of course leaves you hair looking fresh.
Fudge Dry Shampoo
I’d heard many good things about Fudge dry shampoo and am happy to report that they’re true. The product had a strong spray and the nozzle spread the dry shampoo evenly across my hair, making it easy to tell which parts I had covered. After massaging in and leaving for a couple of minutes before brushing out, my hair was back to looking its best. The product features apricot kernel oil to add shine, body and bounce to your second-day hair. Just minutes after using this product my hair was smooth, glossy and ready to take on another day.
TRESemmé Fresh Start Waterless Foam Shampoo
RRP $14.49 – available at leading supermarkets nationwide
Unlike the other products I reviewed, TRESemmé’s dry shampoo is actually a waterless foam. I was a little wary of this one at first, but was over the moon with the results. Like the other products, this was really easy to use – simply pump a few times into your hand, then run through your hair with your fingertips. Then just quickly rub your hair with a towel to remove the dirt and grease. After using this product my hair was left feeling fresh and requiring no further styling. If you’re looking for a dry shampoo that leaves you feeling like your hair’s had a bit of clean rather than just a cover-up, then you can’t look past this one.
