Beauty | Battle of the Dry Shampoo's


Hi Lovelies! As a 9-5 girl who's all about trying to grow out their hair and keep it healthy, you'll feel me when I say my hair is 95% dry shampoo at all times. I try to wash my hair 2-3 times a week, preferably two, so I have an absolute panic attack/bitch fit when I don't have dry shampoo handy. I think most of us are the same and therefore with the popularity of the good ol hair wash in a can ever growing, more and more brands are jumping on the bandwagon and trying to push Batiste off their throne.

Every month when the time to buy a new one rolls around, I stand in Boots scratching my head and looking at the variety of coloured tins and different scents and it kinda hurts my brain (indecisive girl problems). I've tried a couple now so I wanted to give you a little review and comparison post about them, so here goes.


Herbal Essences Uplifting Volume - The one that looks good 

This is the one I reach for a lot these days. As always with Herbal Essences it smells great and really does what it says on the tin and adds volume. However with Volume comes texture and this might just be me, but I can't stand how this makes my hair feel! If I'm going to wear my hair up then this is perfect as it creates thickness that will stay in place and look really fresh, but if my hairs down I cringe when I touch near the roots. Seriously chalky! If I could just stop touching my hair throughout the day this would be a winner as it really makes your hair look great and adds a great workable texture.

Aussie Flower Power Dry Shampoo - The one that smells good 

This is my most recent dry shampoo purchase and I can't lie, I bought it because it was on offer. Aussie has never let any of us down I don't think, but I am seriously disappointed. This smells great kind of like Peach Schnapps which lingers in your hair which is lovely, but in terms of performance as a dry shampoo, I feel like it didn't add any volume or thickness and within a couple of hours my hair was looking greasy again. I had high hopes for an Aussie Dry Shampoo and I have yet to try the others so hopefully only this limited edition version is a bit shit, or maybe it's just me. I could definitely use this as a hair perfume though as it does smell amazing! 

Batiste Cherry Dry Shampoo - The all rounder

For me you just can't beat Batiste. It smells great, adds volume without too much of a chalky texture that's visible in the roots and makes your hair look and feel great. Plus they are constantly reeling out new fragrances and styles (including different colours for different hair) all in the cutest tins with different sizes suitable for travelling and all sorts so keep your eyes peeled! For now Batiste still sit on the throne for me!

What is your favourite dry shampoo?

  8. I'm yet to find a dry shampoo I love :( I have super thick voluminous hair naturally so I definitely don't want a dry shampoo that does that, I might check out the Aussie one as it doesn't do that xx

  9. My favourite is Batiste to, especially the cherry edition. Even with my dark hair I just massage it in and I don't have any problems with chalkiness either :)

  11. Batiste is one that I've heard so much about but my hair just cannot cooperate with dry shampoo so i have to wash it everyday! No matter what I use, my hair goes grey and it just doesn't work! I will definitely have to give the Batiste one another go! xx
