If you’re a beauty-holic, you probably would know the ‘rule’ about not washing your hair everyday in order to maintain the moisture in your tresses. But if you’re living in the tropics like we are, it is impossible not to shampoo your hair everyday due to perspiration. In fact, we tend to have the problem of having oily or limp hair towards the end of the day especially after battling the heat and smells of food centres if we went out of the office to get lunch.
That’s where dry shampoos come in. Dry shampoos are perfect to extend your wash by refreshing hair, adding volume, moisture, shine and defrizz. New mothers who believe in the tradition of not washing their hair during their ‘confinement’ period may also want to look to dry shampoos to keep their hair look more like a crowning glory than a flat mess.
With a lot of us working from home nowadays, dry shampoos are also a great product to use to refresh your hair just after rolling out of bed and getting ready for that morning Zoom meeting with colleagues. Oh…and did you know that dry shampoo is also great for prepping wigs or hairpieces?
However, with so many brands out there, how do you choose the one that suits your needs? We test out 5 bottles of dry shampoo and here’s the low-down.
The shampoos and review
|Brand||Cost||The good||The not-so-good||Overall|
|Marc Anthony True Professional®
(Hydrating Fresh & Shine Citrus)
And the overall winner is…Marc Anthony True Professional® Invisible Dry Shampoo+!
Why is Marc Anthony True Professional® the winner?
It is quite hard to fault the series of Marc Anthony True Professional® Invisible Dry Shampoo+ as it delivers on all aspects of hydration, volume, fragrance, absence of harmful chemicals as well as not leaving behind any residue. Each dry shampoo is lightweight and contains zeolite, which are little molecules that act like empty cages that trap build up dirt, grime and grease. They even have one meant for those with textured and wavy hair – talk about diversity for hair kind! As such, it easily beat out the competition to be the overall winner. But may I suggest having a smaller size so that we can put it in our handbags?
