Dry Shampoo - The Results!

Dry Shampoo is one of my favourite beauty products that i cannot live without...

Now to find out which is the best...

Batiste Dry Shampoo...  6/10

I really liked the smell of this as it was light and fresh and comes in lots of different sents.  When you spray a lot comes out so be careful!  I have dark hair so it was not great for that reason as if you use too much you can see the white powder in your hair.  But i you don't use too much and you have lighter hair it is great and at only £2 it is a bargain!

I also used the brunette version of this dry shampoo and i was really disappointed.. the talc colour was a bit darker but still left my hair with a powdery finnish.  Also the smell was really strong and spicy and i smelt like Christmas!

Charles Worthington Dry Shampoo...  9/10

I love this dry shampoo..  the smell of it is to die for!  It smells so fresh like you have just washed your hair with delicious shampoo.  It too has a slight white powdery Finnish but as it comes out of the can in a finer mist so it works a lot better.  Bit more expensive at £5 a can but i think it is worth it for the the smell.  My man loves it!  Just make sure you give the can a good shake before you use it.

TRESemme Dry Shampoo and Waterless Foam Shampoo... 10/10 *** Winner ***

I thought the dry shampoo was really good and also just had a fine mist  of powder like the Charles Worthington brand  (again make sure you shake!).  The smell was much more subtle which is good if you don't want it to mix with your perfume.  At £4.29 a can it is also great value.

I also tried the waterless foam which is good if you had the time to also re-style your hair.  Its the equivalent of wetting your hair and re-styling it...  I think this is more suited to someone who might have their hair bonded to their head as you can get right in the roots with this.

  1. Nice reviews! Well, do you think these shampoos would be okay with wigs? I'm helping my girlfriend do some research on wig caring tips. She bought these Harlem 125 wigs and Jon Renau wigs for our next trip. We'll be having a long vacation and she wants to put on different hairstyles. She doesn't want to cut or do anything with her natural hair, though. Thanks for sharing the informative post!

  2. Hi Earl - Yes dry shampoo is great for between washes especially on holiday when you are too busy having fun to worry about washing your wig. I have never tried the dry shampoo on synthetic but synthetic is so easy to wash and look after anyway that you would not need to use dry shampoo on this. Hope that helps!?

  3. Hi! Thanks for the reply. It really helps!
