My love for Dry Shampoo...


I am a huge fan of dry shampoo, for me it is one of the best discoveries I have ever come across and I have tried a lot of different ones, my favourite being No Drought from Lush which I blogged about recently.

Then I got a can of dry shampoo from label.m who are my favourite hair care brand, for me they can do no wrong and I hope this dry shampoo wouldn't be letting me down.




The can itself is a silvery grey colour, some say quite masculine in design, I disagree and think it makes it look every inch the designer brand that it is and it looks fantastic sat among other brands.  The black lid finishing off the sleek design.

My hair can get quite greasy and I try not to wash it everyday day, every other day or every third day if I can and the discovery of dry shampoo has made life much easier and gives me that extra day of not having to wash my hair.

What they say - "label.m Dry Shampoo refreshes hair in-between shampooing using natural Rich Starch to disperse oil. Also works as a brilliant matt texturiser for a soft touch, velvet finish to the hair".

The Label.m version for me now rivals Lush in how good it is.  This product is an aerosol can and the spray nozzle is quite powerful, as soon as you press it, you get a wide coverage of your hair, so that means you only need to press it twice at the very most to ensure you get the bits you need to spray. As soon as you disperse the spray from the can, the first thing you notice is the lack of which gunk which clings to your hair and head and takes forever to brush out and leaves your clothes looking like you have a serious case of dandruff.  Instead it touches your hair, you massage it in as usual and then brush it out and that is all you need to do, it is so lightweight that it quickly absorbs oil and leaves your hair looking as though it has just been washed and dried.




Here you can see the difference between label.m and Batiste, the photo isn't brilliant as the sun decided to shine as I pressed the button on my camera, but there is a notable difference.


There is also no fragrance to this Dry Shampoo, the one thing I started to dislike about other brands was being able to notice other people wearing them via their fragrance and it made me self-conscious.  This doesn't make me feel self-conscious and once I have brushed my hair through, I love how soft and smooth my hair feels and how good it looks, just like I have washed and dried it. It also doesn't hamper my attempts to straighten my hair, my GHDs glide through my hair just like they do after i have freshly washed my hair.

I have absolutely loved this dry shampoo and wouldn't hesitate to purchase it again. It costs £10.95 for a 200ml can and you can also purchase a handbag version which is a 50ml can for £3.50 both of which are exceptional good value for money.

  2. Love dry shampoos, the non-dandruffy ones. Have you tried Oscar Blandi (the brunette one)? It's my Holy Grail, works even when I come out of the shower without getting rid of all the coconut oil.

  4. This sounds right up my street. My fave at the mo is the Batiste Graffiti one - I think it's exclusive to Boots? I need a new can anyway as I ran out earlier today so may pick up this instead of the Batiste one :D Great post.

  8. Oh no you can smell it when people wear Batiste? That's it, now I'm going to turn to scentless dry shampoos as well. Thanks for making me aware ;) I've been loving the ones by L'Oréal Professionel as well, but I find that Batiste is the one that is the most 'persistent' and lasts the longest.

  13. I love dry shampoo. When I first heard of it I wasn't impressed but I tried it and loved it. After using it my hair looked like I had just washed and conditioned it, it left no nasty smell and my hair felt great. Definitely a must have in my house for those lazy days!
