6 dry shampoos that’ll keep your hair looking great without making it wet

Published by Finn Hayden

Your hair is often the first thing that people notice about you, and most of us spend quite a bit of time and money making sure that our hair looks good.

But taking care of your hair properly can be a bit of a nightmare - having to shower every time you want to wash your hair is very time-consuming, especially if you've got a lot of hair to dry when you get out of the shower.

This is why dry shampoo is such an excellent product - with just a few sprays, you can instantly have cleaner and better-looking hair, without all the hassle of a shower.

There is a lot of dry shampoo on the market right now, so we thought it would be useful to round up the best dry shampoo that you can buy for all hair types. Let's get into it:

Revolution Haircare Revive Dry Shampoo

We love this dry shampoo from Revolution Haircare, which is both very light and very effective. It contains 0% talc, so when you use it there is no residue left over, and you can use it when you're out and about safe in the knowledge that there won't be white spots on your hair. This dry shampoo actually contains caffeine as an ingredient, which really helps to give your hair a lift. It's also 100% vegan and made from cruelty-free ingredients. The citrusy fragrance is really fresh and lasts for hours. Learn more and buy it here -

Batiste Naturally

Something which really puts people off using dry shampoo is the thought that the products are full of artificial ingredients, which is why we love the Batiste Naturally dry shampoo. This product is made using 100% natural extracts and has a lovely fresh scent from green tea & chamomile. This dry shampoo helps to remove excess oil and really gives your hair a boost. As an added bonus, it's made with 40% less packaging so it's extra good for the environment. Learn more and buy it here -

CoLab Dry Shampoo+

This dry shampoo is made using a very fine starch, which is great as it leaves very little residue on the hair, unlike other dry shampoos that we've tried. It's actually almost invisible and you need very little to have an effect, plus it feels totally weightless. This dry shampoo is suitable for all hair types and everything in the bottle is 100% vegan. It's also suitable for bleached and colour-treated hair. Learn more and buy it here -

MyHairMatters Instant Freshness

MyHairMatters is an own-brand range of dry shampoo from Sainsbury's, and we're actually really impressed by it. Each dry shampoo is designed to deal with excess oil, but they're suitable for any type of hair. We love the floral fragrant scents, especially the Tropical scent (pictured) which is really fresh and seems to last for ages. Learn more and buy it here -


Phil Smith Big It Up

So far, most of the dry shampoos that we've included in this guide have been great for cleaning and freshening up your hair, but if you're looking for a dry shampoo to really give your hair a boost then the Phil Smith Big It Up volume boosting dry shampoo is a great choice. With just a few sprays it'll immediately give your hair some bounce and volume. As well as volume, this dry shampoo will also really effectively clean your hair and give you that just-washed feel. It's a great product, learn more and buy it here -

Touch of Silver dry shampoo

The Touch of Sliver dry shampoo is an advanced product which does much more than just wash your hair - it contains violet pigment, which reduces the appearance of yellow & orange brassy tones in your hair. This makes it perfect for lighter hair such as blonde or grey. But as well as making your hair look better and shinier, it also cleans your hair by absorbing excess oil. Learn more and buy it here -
