  • The Best Dry Shampoo

    Dry shampoo can be a lifesaver. If you're running out the door and don't quite have time to wash your hair-dry shampoo to the rescue! We've all now been told a million times by our hairdressers never to wash our hair every day and there it is -- dry shampoo to the rescue! 

    However, when you have pin straight hair that tends to get incredibly greasy if you don't wash it every day, you look at dry shampoo and laugh. Most have only kept my hair fresh for about half a day and then by dinner I'm running my hands through greasy locks. I've written about it before but one of the best I've found is dry bar's detox - this one can take me to 2-3 days on the condition that my hair has been blown dry day 1 to get rid of excess moisture and give it volume.
    I had tried products from Living Proof before and really loved them so when I heard about their Perfect Hair Day dry shampoo I had to give it a go! With PHD I can somehow get an extra day in when I don't blow dry (which I unheard of!). This stuff zaps grease, gives your hair a little life and some nice texture. It has a nice lemony sent and doesn't leave any of that white residue that products like klorane do. I'll still wash my hair probably more than I should but at least now my hair dresser can be a bit more proud of me some days:)
