Faithful Four | Dry Shampoo


Being a lazy gal with fine hair, I'm not into regular shampoo sessions. Firstly, I can't be bothered (don't hate a bitch) but secondly - and most importantly - my hair is so fine that when it's freshly clean, it always look limp and hideous (slightly exaggeration maybe...!). So I'm always reaching for dry shampoos and conditioners as they save time and add texture and thickness to my locks. I've tried so many products in the past that it was time to share four of my absolute favourites...

First up is Aussie Dry Shampoo Wash+Blow In A Can - a great option for gals that want great results without spending too many coins. At just £4.49 (Superdrug), Aussie's Wash+Blow In A Can is able to soak up grease in an instant and give some serious stiff lift to the hair. If you have fine hair or just really love creating serious volume, I can't recommend this dry shampoo enough. It smells good, leaves no residue behind and keeps hair looking fresh for hours after application.

Next we have the Ouai Dry Shampoo Foam, the hair product for girls that love to treat their locks to a bit a luxury... and love a good beauty invention. Unlike most dry shampoos that come in powder or spray form, the Ouai Dry Shampoo (£24.00 ASOS / $28.00 Sephora) comes in foam form but don't let that put you off. It may wet the hair on application, however as soon as it's been worked into the roots, it begins to dry quickly, soaking up all the grease in its path... like magic! It has the most beautiful smell - more perfume than hair product - and it gives the hair a nice bit of body!


My third favourite is the Amika Perk Up Dry Shampoo (£20.00 / $22.00 Sephora) - a great option for those with super oily hair. This Amika favourite does an amazing job at soaking up oil and dirt with only a few sprays. It is a weightless spray that doesn't leave a chalky residue behind, thanks to its formula that contains rice starch instead of aluminium shavings or talc. This dry shampoo also features the antioxidant and fatty acid-rich obliphica oil, which helps to moisturise and strengthen hair, repair split ends and enhance shine!

My final favourite is the Shu Uemura Color Lustre Dry Cleaner (£23.10 / $39.00, which is a great solution for those with colour treated locks. It gently cleanses at the roots, whilst providing moisture to dry lengths and ends. Color Lustre contains micro-fine powders that absorb excess oil and remove bad smells or product buildup. Like all my other dry shampoo favourites, this bad boy leaves no residue behind and its water-free conditioning base revives hair colour, keeping locks vibrant af. It smells good too!


My other favourite dry shampoos include the Nioxin Instant Fullness Dry Cleaner, Aveda Shampure Thermal Dry Conditioner and System Professional Instant Energy Dry Conditioner!
