Product In Focus: Dry Shampoo

Product In Focus: Dry Shampoo

 

Dry shampoo is a beauty must-have and it aims to please. Absorbing oil residue in the roots of your hair allowing you to extend or in most cases hide the need to wash your hair. It's a saviour but with so many brands currently available we decided to share our favourites. 

1. EVO - Water Killer Dry Shampoo 

This is a two-in-one product that will eliminate any oil and also texturise your hair for styling. It's the perfect product when your hair just needs an extra boost and is tittering on the fine line between cool and unhygienic. There is nothing better then when your hair is piecey on the end and slightly styled from the day before then to add a little of this to the roots, massage through and scrunch with your fingers. 

2. Clean - Original Dry Shampoo

This product is great because it's not packages in a spray or aerosol. It has a great scent and is easy to use. Section your hair, tilt the bottle and massage through with your fingers, it's a powder so if you want to have more control you can sprinkle it into you hands and add to your hair little by little. 

3. Bumble And Bumble - Hair Powder

This is another multi-purpose product but this time it's to not only extend you wash but also your hair colour. It comes in white, blondish, brown and black and as we have alluded to it is created from a colour base so avoid getting it on clothing or other surfaces, we recommend using a towel around your head and shoulders. We aren't giving it points for being a quick and easy product to have in your bag to touch up but it's great for helping with re-growth. The wax finish will also help hide oil and create a perfectly messy look. It really is a multi-purpose product and we love it for that. 

DIY Dry Shampoo 

Brunette : Mix cornstarch or baby powder with some unsweetened coco powder to achieve the same colour of your hair.

Redheads: You can use the same cornstarch or baby powder mixed with ground cinnamon, which gives it a great smell and will help you match to the colour of your hair.

Blondes: Simply use cornstarch, baby powder or even baking soda. If you would like to add a drop or two of essential oils for added scent. 

To apply you can simply use your fingers to sprinkle through the roots of your hair or use a large makeup brush to dust the mix through.
