You’re dashing out to a party straight from work and you have that awful feeling upon looking in the mirror – your hair is just a limp and greasy mess! Obviously there is no time to wash your lackluster locks, so you need a quick fix that gets you party-ready in seconds flat.
We’ve researched four different products that are popular and get the job done – leaving you to make an informed consumer decision, even if you’re running SO late to your next shindig!
TREsemmé’s dry shampoo comes out pretty quickly so make sure to hold this back from your head as to not deploy too much too quickly. The smell of this brand is not our favorite but it still very pleasant and clean. You can find TREsemmé for around $6.00 at your local drugstore.
The formula for Aveeno Dry Shampoo is sulfate-free, meaning that is doesn’t contain harsh detergents that can damage your hair. They’ve designed their dry shampoo to remove excess oil and impurities from your hair. The two most notable aspects of Aveeno’s dry shampoo are the fresh and clean scent, and the immediate volume boost to your hair’s roots. Find Aveeno in your local drugstore for around $8.00.
Klorane’s Dry Shampoo has a wonderful scent that is not too overpowering – just right. Their formula is based on a softening, protective oat extract. The most expensive of those we’re reviewing, we still feel like this is a great price for the quality you’re getting! Klorane can be purchased for about $10.00 either in the specialty section or online.
Oh yes, did you know that a little dusting of baby powder will totally do the trick if you’re in a real pinch? Dust just a little at your roots and comb through to soak up any excess oil. Please be very gentle in your application of baby powder – if you let it tumble out too liberally you will notice your hair changes from its natural color to a very stark white! The nostalgic baby powder scent and it’s great price point of about $1.50 for a travel size makes this a great dry shampoo in a bind!
And, the WINNER!
We wanted to pick 1 winner – the best dry shampoo in terms of quality, still at a modest price. Aveeno takes the cake! The great scent, volume-boosting properties, and great price makes it the hands-down winner!
So pick up a bottle to be ready the next time you’re rushing to touch up your make-up and hair before heading out to happy hour or fun evening festivities!
