Dry Shampoo Showdown

Dry shampoo is heaven sent, I always have a bottle with me as there are always days when I just can’t be bothered to wash my hair. Lazy I know but we all do it I’m sure. I love trying out new products and realised that I have accumulated a lot of different dry shampoo brands and have decided to write a little show down regarding the best and worst of my collection.

Asda Dry Shampoo Professional Formula
Starting off with a purse friendly option this supermarket branded one does smell refreshing and is great if you don’t want to splash too much cash, but it takes a lot of working into the hair as it can leave the dreaded white/grey residue. It’s not the best but it’s also not the worst.

Herbal Essences Dry Shampoo Uplifting Volume
It smells insanely good and doesn’t leave any white marks this time but it takes a lot for my hair to even feel a tiny bit better. Leaves my hair smelling extremely fresh and clean but doesn’t do anything for me volume wise either.

Batiste Dry Shampoo XXL Volume 
This is the best one by far, I have repurchased it numerous times and will continue to do so. It is a little pricier than most considering it’s drug store but it’s brilliant. It instantly refreshes my hair leaving it feeling cleaner and smelling amazing. Volume wise it’s incredible and gives a little texture to the hair as well. It’s a texturising spray and dry shampoo in one can, amazing!

Ruth Crilly Co Lab Dry Shampoo New York
This product is the least favourite out of the bunch. The YouTuber A Model Recommends is behind this product line and it’s promised to be invisible and not leave any whites marks.  I always shake the cans well before use and also spray from far away but this stuff creates white marks city, it’s so bad. It smells amazing and leaves my hair smelling super clean but it leaves my hair feeling slimy, lifeless and white. Worse than my hair to begin with. (see my Disappointing Favourites #5 for a full review.)

Dove Refresh + Care Dry Shampoo
Possibly the best smelling hair product out there, it’s incredible! It doesn’t leave any white/grey marks in my hair but it doesn’t leave it feeling that clean either. It helps a little bit but it doesn’t compare to Batiste. If you are lucky and don’t suffer from very greasy second day hair and you just just need a little refreshing, this would be perfect. I’ve found that recently, when my hair is only a little bit greasy, this stuff does work wonders, my second favourite out of the bunch!

Batiste for me always wins, I always have a can handy and even have a travel size knocking about somewhere as it’s brilliant for both creating texture and refreshing the hair. Sadly, I would totally steer clear of the Co Lab dry shampoo, I just don’t get on with it at all.

Have you tried any of these? Which dry shampoo would you recommend?
