Dry shampoo Refresh + Care , Dove is an excellent example of how a budget product can make healthy competition three times more expensive analogues. It quickly returns visible freshness to the hairstyle, adds volume (I don't even have this on clean hair), and at the same time it does not feel too heavy on the curls.

Hair looks great, as if you just dried it with mousse, with your head thrown back. However, in order to achieve the effect, I had to spray almost a quarter of the bottle on my long hair. The only thing I didn’t like was the aroma of freshness, which was too straightforward for me personally.

The main advantage of Fresh.Hair , Kevin Muprhy shampoo catches the eye even before the actual test - it is compact, only 57 ml, which means that it will perfectly fit even in a very small bag, which is especially important for me, who carries my “everything” with me. It would seem, why carry it with you? Imagine that you are not in the office, but on a river tram! The wind blows the hair, which before our eyes is becoming more and more boring and requiring an urgent shower. And just "touch up" the roots at the end of the day is sometimes useful, especially if the hair tends to lose volume. In addition to the size, this shampoo pleased with a few more points.

Firstly, the talcum powder in it is very finely ground, and therefore it does not need to be hysterically combed out to get rid of the feeling of flour in the hair. Secondly, it is somehow successfully sprayed and it is not necessary to pour the entire contents of the bottle onto the head, and therefore it is enough for several uses, which cannot be said about some full-size brothers. And thirdly, it smells very nice of lemon-vanilla pie, at the same time unobtrusively, which is always a plus for me personally.

Until recently, my experience with dry shampoos was rather negative: they did not manage to make the hair clean, neither visually nor by the sensations of the scalp. But the negative attitude towards this cosmetic literally evaporated after using HairXPure Balance , Oriflame for oily hair.

It smells good, adheres to hair easily and cleanses really well. In addition, the shampoo adds volume to the hair, which is very important for those whose hairstyle is far from the definition of "luxurious mane". And the cost is just over 500 rubles, which is also quite acceptable. There is only one minus: from the shampoo, a white bloom forms, which must be combed out very carefully.

The first thing that captivates in the dry shampoo of the American brand Joico is a pleasant smell. It is provided by the tea tree oil included in the formula. The composition also contains willow extract, which helps to normalize the production of sebum - which means, in theory, over time, hair will need to be washed less often. As for the immediate effect, the unpleasant oily sheen, especially noticeable at the roots, does go away after a few sprays.

Instant Refresh, Joico does not leave a white coating and does not weigh down the hair, but it does not give the effect of truly clean hair, as if it had just been washed in the shower, which means that it cannot completely replace the classic shampoo and water. But on a tense business trip with several flights, it will definitely help you get to an important meeting with a "shameful" head.

A real find for people with an eco-worldview is Shampure, Aveda dry shampoo. Its formula consists of 99.8% natural ingredients, and it is sprayed with a simple press on the tube: the creators of the product deliberately abandoned the aerosol. The packaging is also not made without thinking about the environment: when the shampoo runs out, you can buy the so-called refill.

For those scared of talcum powder, manufacturers have replaced it with corn and tapioca starch. With its direct responsibilities, such a powder copes well, just do not tilt the bottle too horizontally when spraying: there is a risk that there will be too much texture on the head. You will comb it off, but it will take time. An absolute plus of the product is the completely cosmic aroma of essential oils, which is very characteristic of all Aveda products.

In truth, I prefer to wash my hair the old fashioned way, with water and regular shampoo. But the "dry" version will help out great if there is no time at all, and looking at five-plus is vital. A small bottle (only 50 ml) of Express Dry Waterless Shampoo, Paul Mitchell is convenient to take with you not only on a trip - you can use it even on the way to an important meeting. We spray on the roots and strands - the instructions say that a small amount is enough, but it seemed to me that it was not worth saving.

The fine white dust instantly absorbs excess oils on the scalp and is easy to comb out. Hair becomes not only livelier and fuller, but also easier to style. The effect, of course, is not durable, but we don't need anything else. The only negative is the too pronounced smell of cosmetic fragrances.

Perk Up Dry Shampoo, Amika is a great option for the dry shampoo amateur. It is impossible to overdo it with it: even with long and careful spraying, it does not leave a white bloom on the hair, since there is no talc and aluminum in the composition - only natural rice starch.

True, to cope with a truly stale head, you will have to lime a quarter of the bottle on yourself. But on clean hair, new possibilities open up: just a couple of zips noticeably lifts the hair from the roots, gives it shine and visually makes the hair twice as thick.

During the test of this shampoo, I was "lucky" to stay at home with a fever and a runny nose. It is clear that washing my hair in this state is not too perspicacious, but for me, washing my hair daily, it is akin to moderate torture. Therefore, the bottle of Hair Refresher, Davines dry shampoo did not languish idle for long. The first thing I noticed when I applied it to the top of my head was that it practically does not give off the talcum deposits characteristic of dry shampoos, which must be methodically combed out before the hair can be used again.

On the one hand, this means that in especially neglected cases it is unlikely to help, but on the other hand, it is perfect for storing it, for example, at work and slightly refreshing your hair before an important meeting or dinner. Or simply for those who have loose long hair or haircuts like a bob, tend to lose volume and stick to the head. It doesn't smell very noticeable, which will also appeal to those who do not like to feel the aromatic potpourri of cosmetic fragrances.>
