Over the years I’ve tried a lot of dry shampoos. While I don’t like to wash my hair every day as I find it can do more damage than good, my second-day hair can sometimes need a bit of a refresher to keep it from looking greasy. I rely on dry shampoos for these times and have found some good ones and some not so good ones.
I initially used a traditional powder dry shampoo for years; they can be messy though so I eventually made the switch to an aerosol spray. The sprays are far less messy to use and in some cases can work just as well. Today I thought I would give you the run-down on the three dry shampoos that are currently in my bathroom and let you know which one I like the best. They’re all around the same price and they’re all applied the same way.
Batiste dry shampoo
When I switched over to aerosol sprays, this is the first one I tried. My sister had recommended it and with such cute packaging, I was definitely intrigued. I currently use the ‘Tropical’ scent, but the ‘Blush’ one is my favourite, though there are 5 options to choose from. I find the first half of the can to work well, but when it comes to the second half of the can, I notice not as much product comes out and I have to use a lot more to get the same results, which is frustrating. My hair looks clean all day without retouching which is ideal, but you can definitely feel the product build-up in your hair by the end of the day.
Finesse dry shampoo
This is one I’ve tried more recently. It has a fresh, clean scent which isn’t too overpowering, which I liked. I find this one doesn’t last all day and my hair can start to look a bit greasy midday. Also, I need to use quite a bit of product in my hair to get it to work, so this one doesn’t last as long and was overall a bit disappointing.
Colab Dry Shampoo
I watch a lot of girls from the U.K. on YouTube and commonly see them refer to Colab dry shampoo, the line created by model/writer Ruth Crilly. After hearing their rave reviews on it I wanted to try it for myself but found out it is made in the U.K. and I had a hard time locating it. I eventually found it on nailpolishcanada.com and immediately ordered some. There are 5 fragrances all named after cities. Each scent also comes in extreme volume. My hair rarely gets flat so I opted to try the regular one in the ‘London’ scent. With notes of bergamot, musk, and magnolia, it smells amazing. The packaging is also really pretty. I love this stuff. My hair looks and feels clean when I use this and a little goes a long way. I think of the three this will last the longest.
