If you've been round these parts a while you'll know I'm a bit mad for my dry shampoo. There is nothing as good a freshen up of the mop of hair if your out of bed late or even if its just to give it a bit of a lift and extra shiny cleaness. But is there a good tried and tested dry shampoo that is affordable yet does an amazing job too? That my friends is where I come in, testing out the good, bad and the plain awful so you don't have to!
I have poker straight hair that needs a wash every day, otherwise you can clearly see the grease in my hair. Sexy right? Ugh!! So if I am really desperate I'll throw in half a bottle of dry shampoo to combat the grease until I can find a shower, sink or deep puddle to dip my head in. I just hate having dirty hair, its the worst feeling! So lets start off with the dry shampoo Spirit of the Carnival from Super Drug. This was actually not too bad if your hair is only a little greasy and your looking for a quick freshen up for £2.19. I also included a small Super Drug hair spray for extra firm hold that goes really well with all of these dry shampoos as its light and doesn't least a layer of hard hair that looks like its covered in hair spray or gel. All for the little price of £0.99? Perfect!
Then we have the worst out of the lot, Girlz Only Hazy Days Dry Shampoo from Pennys. This was under 2 euro but I'm sorry I wasted the money on it! My god, there was nothing I could do but head for the shower after I put this into my hair. It was wet, sticky and left my hair feeling twice as greasy from what I started with. All I can say is thank god I wasn't in a rush out anywhere or I would have been late! Straight in the bin with this horrible bottle after the photos for this were taken!
Lastly the best out of the lot, Batiste. I know that this one is the most expensive out of the lot and most widely available as you can get it in all chemists, Boots and even like likes of Tesco and Dunnes stock this brand. The most expensive being €6.59 for 400ml and the cheapest being about €3.99 for the 200ml. However you can get them in loads of different scents and they cater of all types of hair. I branched out with my last bottle and got a big bottle of Cherry. It wouldn't be my favourite scent but it really works so well and my hair feels the next best thing to being clean from the shower. My favourite ones are the light and blonde or the blush. And the packaging is always a plus too, I love all the different cute and eye catching designs!
So there you go, a few different kinds of dry shampoo to look out for or indeed, avoid! I will be on the hunt to see if there is something better out there and if I do find something, you will be the first to know! As always I hope everyone is having a good week and staying happy :)
I love the idea of dry shampoo, but sadly I'm allergic to all but the Lush No Drought one (I know you're on a Lush ban, so sorry for mentioning it. :)). It's not the cheapest and it comes in difficult to use bottle though, which is really frustrating!ReplyDelete
Aww no thats such a shame! Least your not like the rest of us lazy yokes then not bothering to wash our hair! Ha thank you, its ok I might be near breaking point with my Lush ban anyway ;) I've heard how annoying their dry shampoo is, so I've stayed clear! xxDelete
Suave also has a really good dry shampoo that is around 3 bucks! Great review on all of these. :DReplyDelete
Naww really?! I'm not sure if you can get that over here, but I'll have a look online, thanks! ;) xDelete
I love Batiste as well. Just bought the new Garnier one on sale so I'm giving it a good road test this week (i.e I can't be arsed to wash my hair every second day) and I'll do a post on it. xxReplyDelete
Oh I didn't know Garnier had one I'll have to go and eh look! (buy) I'll be looking out for your review! :) xDelete
I'm a Batiste fan! I feel like others leave a greasy coating on my hair.I also like it that they all smell so good :).I have the blush one right now and I can't live without it! xxReplyDelete
Oh delighted to hear theres lots of people with the same loves as me! Oh I just bought a blush one myself, wonderful things :) xDelete
