We put 6 dry shampoos to the test to end all bad hair days

Come clean.

When it comes to your bathroom cabinet, no product is holier than dry shampoo.

Having saved many a bad hair day, it’s the biggest morning timesaver of all. Unfortunately, not all dry shampoos are created equal. So to help you weed out the good from the bad, we put ’em to the test. 

Brand: Ouai
Name: Dry Shampoo Foam
From: theouai.com
Price: $43
While the foam was fun to dispense, that’s where the praise ends. I wanted to like this product, but it made no difference in the cleanliness of my hair.

Brand: Kevin Murphy
Name: Fresh Hair Dry Cleaning Spray
From: kevinmurphy.com.au
Price: $38.95
The fact that this spray leaves no white residue at all had me won over instantly. A little bit also goes a long way, so even though the price point is on the higher end, it really lasts.

Brand: Matrix
Name: Style Link Playback Dry Shampoo
From: adorebeauty.com.au
Price: $25.95
This product is lightweight, adds workable texture and leaves basically no reside. The fragrance is slightly sweet, but not unpleasantly so.

Brand: Eleven
Name: Give Me Clean Hair Dry Shampoo 
From: elevenaustralia.com
Price: $24.95
For the affordable price point, this dry shampoo did a spot on job of removing oil and odour. It also restored my hair’s volume and I managed to extend my wash by another two days. No complaints here.

Brand: Evo 
Name: Water Killer Dry Shampoo 
From: evohair.com
Price: $35.95
Described as a ‘two-in-one dry shampoo and styling powder’, this product returned some body to my hair and made it feel relatively fresh again. If you’re looking to absorb oil on your scalp, it may not help much. But, if you’re hair is just looking a li le limp, it’ll do the trick.

Brand: Redken
Name: Dry Two Day Extender
From: adorebeauty.com.au
Price: $34.95
I was quite doubtful about the whole ‘two day extender’ promise, but to my surprise my hair still felt relatively clean 24 hours after use. There was next to no white colour in this product either, which is a huge bonus. The scent was baby powder-esque and in no way overpowering or sickly, as some dry shampoo can be.
