Battle of the Dry Shampoos

whom ever invented dry shampoos deserves an honour from the Queen, do you think she uses it?, anyway my hair is a 'mare to wash n blow dry, its so thick and unruly at times plus I don't really have time to wash and dry my hair every day, so in my battle to beat the grease I've trialled and tested a few Dry Shampoos along the years....

Left to Right: Schwarzkopf OSIS + Dust It Mattifying Powder, Tigi Bed Head Sugar Dust, Umberto Gianni Glam Hair Morning After Shampoo, TRESemme Instant Refresh Waterless Foam Shampoo,  Batiste Dry Shampoo XXL Volume

In Joint Last Place - OSIS and TRESemme

With no directions on the tub I basically had to improv' with this fine white powder...which left me with sticky matted roots..WHY!?  I then "You Tubed" it and realised the product is mainly for creating volume underneath the top layer of hair so  it wasn't really working on the "remove the grease from my roots" angle

Isn't the whole pint of a dry shampoo to save on time and the hassle of blow drying your hair?? That's what I thought anyway but this Waterless Foam shampoo requires you to use a hairdryer (or towel dry :/), It may be good for short to shoulder length hair but It just didnt work on my hair plus it just didn't suffice in the whole time saving / not having to get the hair dryer out aspect

3rd Place - TIGI Sugar Dust
A finer and more translucent powder than OSIS, the product dispenses slowly so you don't get too much product as you do with OSIS, these powder shakers are a bit awkward to use but this one is slightly better on the result but still takes time to sufficiently de-grease 

2nd Place - Umberto's Glam Hair
Back to the trusted spray can , this did deliver in the de-greasing stakes and although it didn't matte it up as much as Batiste does, it does smell a lot better than all of Basiste's varieties, It smells fresh and is definitely a welcome refresher to "The Morning After Hair" - will buy again

and the winner is....

Bastiste Dry Shampoo
big & bouncy XXL Volume

Yup, this beauty delivers in all accounts, It's quick, easy and gives ultimate volume.  You cannot beat the brand we all began our Dry Shampoo journey with and this new concoction is worth it's weight in, well, dry shampoo!
