Dry Shampoo Showdown

dry shampoo showdown vo5 klorane soap and glory
If you have oily hair like me you’ll know what a pain in the arse it is to wash it one day only for it to look like you’ve poured grease over it the next! Dry shampoo is a complete life saver for me as 1. I’m too lazy to wash my hair every day and 2. It’s not good for your hair to be washed that much anyway! I wash my hair every other day but these four dry shampoos have been making it look a lot more presentable in-between washes! Here’s what I think about them!

VO5 Refresh Me Quick Dry Shampoo RRP £3.50 is my old favourite and has been for the longest time now, I always go back to it! When I can find it that is! I usually get mine for £1.99 in Savers but I see that Boots have recently reintroduced it again though they currently only have the Plump it Up version. Nonetheless, if you’re on a budget or just go through dry shampoo at a ridiculous rate you should definitely check this out! The scent is really fresh and clean, it leaves no white cast and it takes the grease out of my hair quickly and easily without too much effort rubbing in!

I was recently sent the Klorane Dry Shampoo with Oat Milk for brown to dark hair* RRP £8 and the Klorane Dry Shampoo with Nettle for oily hair* RRP £8 in a generous care package personally picked out for my, you guessed it, dark and oily hair! I have been blown away by these two, where other dry shampoos take the grease out of my hair they can sometimes leave it looking dull and lifeless a few hours into the day but not these. They somehow manage to add a bit of lift to my hair as well as shine which I thought was impossible on my second day hair! I also feel like I need to use less product as they are so effective. The scent is clean and light and though they are more on the expensive side, I think they are 100% worth it! Escentual frequently do offers of their French Pharmacy products too so they are more affordable then. Read more about Klorane here and see my French Pharmacy favourites here!

Klorane is available from independent pharmacies, Boots, Escentual and Look Fantastic!

This is the newest dry shampoo to my stash and in my opinion the best smelling! I love anything Original Pink scented and the bottle doesn’t lie – the touch release technology is amazing and I get gorgeous whiffs of this throughout the day when I ruffle my hair! As a dry shampoo alone, it’s not my favourite, it takes the grease out of my hair but it still it can get a little too lank for my liking as the day goes on. Saying that, I would still be tempted to repurchase if they brought out a Mist You Madly fragranced version!

What’s your favourite dry shampoo? The OUAI Dry Shampoo foam is next on my hit list!

  1. Dry shampoo is a life saver, I finished many bottles in winter,in summer I don't use it much since I wash my hair every other day. Haven't tried any of these, the VO5 sounds amazing!!


  2. I don't normally use dry shampoo, so I'm completely clueless in this area. I normally just pick up the one which looks the best! I'm currently using the Aussie dry shampoo but I'm looking for a cruelty-free option for when I run out.

  3. I haven't tried any of these before! Thanks for the suggestions :)

    xo, Liz

  4. Everyone seems to Rave about Klorane for oily hair. I might give that one a go.
    I have been using a black root spray lately and that sort of doubles as a dry shampoo.

  6. I'm a firm believer in dry shampoo! I've seen the VO5 one around but haven't ever used VO5 products so I was a bit hesitant about it. Will definitely get it next time I see it

  7. The Klorane options sound amazing!! xx


  8. I really need to try the V05 one, I've been sticking to Baptiste to far :) x

  9. Batiste has always worked for me and I've stuck with it because I always look for oil absorbance, My hair is quite thick and sort of puffy at times so the last thing I need is more volume haha. Seriously what did we do before dry shampoo?

  10. I really want to try the VO5 one, my sister uses it and she loves it!

  11. I really didn't like the VO5 dry shampoo when I tried it a few years ago! Everyone is so different though :) I really want to try the soap and glory one, heard a few good things about it. I usually just stick to batiste on a daily basis :)

  12. Never try this dry shampoo. I prefer Batiste.

    New in my blog ->

  13. I've never tried dry shampoo I always think, does it actually work? I have oily hair too I wash mine way too frequently!! I love the sound of the Vo5 and soap and glory one, I love soap and glory products especially the pacakaging! x

  14. I have very dry hair, I'm not sure these will work for me, but I'm glad, you enjoy using them. xx

  15. I've never heard of Klorane. I like the idea that it smells clean. Sometimes dry shampoos can give off an obvious overly sweet smell x

  18. I am completely new to the dry shampoo world as I have never used one. I also have oily hair so I feel your pain of having to wash it every other day.

  19. I have the same problem with my greasy hair, it's annoying and can never find a good dry shampoo but now i'm going to see if I can get the klorane ones. I also like using a shampoo from vital nature and find that the one for oily hair can help a bit with the increase of oil, but really mildly.
    Thanks for sharing these products.


  20. Dry shampoo is a life saver for me, I couldn't live without it!
