How did we survive before the advent of dry shampoo? It’s a saviour for time-poor women everywhere, whether you're too lazy to wash your hair or it's gone flat from sleeping on it. A blow-dry in a bottle, if you will, spraying dry shampoo on your roots will instantly make your hair look clean and voluminous.
According to new data, the most popular dry shampoo globally isn't an expensive one but it does have an A-list following including Drew Barrymore and Jenna Dewan. Batiste Dry Shampoo has proven to be a favourite and at $10 for a 200ml can it won't break the bank. No wonder Batiste also tops the category in the Australian market too. Whether you're reaching for a can to soak up excess oil from or to give texture to limp strands, here are a few tips to ensure model-worthy body and bounce.
Start by separating hair into two-five centimetre sections parallel to your part and spray your roots. The goal is to spray all of your roots, without disposing to much product in one spot.
Ideally, dry shampoo should appear translucent but if you have any build-up or white residue flip your hair upside down, then use your fingers to blend the powder, focusing on your routs and letting any excess powder fall away. And that's it, super simple. We've tried hundreds of beauty products and compiled an ultimate guide to the best dry shampoo for every hair type. Scroll to discover your new everyday hair hero...
