Cake The 'Do Gooder' Dry Shampoo, £8.99

Chemical free, quick cleaning and residue free, Cake’s new dry shampoo ticks all the boxes. It’s impressively lightweight and makes an almost instant difference. Fringes will benefit thanks to the finer formula – spritz a little onto your brush, or directly onto the roots, and rub it in with your fingers to help plump it up.

IGK Dry Shampoo, £10

The workhorse of dry shampoos, this heavy-duty spray eats up oil, dirt and sweat in seconds. A trick for getting the most out of this formula is to douse your hair with it just before bedtime. Not only will this soak up any oils that appear overnight, but tossing and turning on your pillow will help to distribute the product evenly throughout the hair for a cool, live-in finish – just like day-at-the-beach hair.

Klorane Oatmilk Dry Shampoo, £9

Soothing for sensitive heads, Klorane’s an A-list favourite for its invisible formula and no chalky residue. It works like a mattifying face powder, using ultra-fine oatmilk particles to soak up grease and grime. Spray it through the lengths and ends, then leave it on – the product itself is so fine that you won’t feel it or need to really work it into your hair. It’s a brilliant texturiser too, as well as a remedy for unwashed hair.

Kristin Ess Dry Shampoo, £15

Using vitamins and the brand’s cult ‘zip-up technology’, this covetable dry shampoo strengthens weak hair and protects damaged cuticles, all while getting rid of oil and boosting volume with a little shine.

R+Co Death Valley Dry Shampoo, £24

This has a texture that provides maximum hold, so it’s perfect when you need to stretch out a blow-dry for an extra day or two, or when your freshly washed hair is just too clean to hold an up-do. In the latter scenario, spray from roots to ends before piling your hair up to give strands more grit, and help pins and any accessories stay put.

Batiste Dry Shampoo, £2.99

This cult classic remains a bestseller and is said to fly off the shelves every second in the UK. It’s now available in tinted formulas, so you can mask grown-out roots and grey hairs. The formula is still one of the most powdery on the market; if it leaves hair feeling too weighted, finish with a blast of cold air from the hairdryer – this will get rid of any excess sitting on the scalp and throughout the hair.

Amika Dry Shampoo, £20

Amika’s dry shampoo gives an extra day between washes, while adding volume throughout the lengths and at the root. Mist it into the hair, and wait three minutes before you shake or brush it through. This will ensure oils are absorbed, texture is maximised and that tell-tale powdery feel is banished.
