This past year treated us with some amazing developments in the world of hair care. New product releases were coming out in every direction and it does not show sign of slowing down in 2018. I feel incredibly honoured to be in this position to get to try some hair care products as an “influencer”. I’m using this position to help spread awareness about the products I try. We all need to make sure we get the hair products we deserve. One of the main products I turned to last year was dry shampoo.
This may not be a surprise due to the massive majority of people that rely on this product. It doesn’t mean you have greasy hair and couldn’t be bothered to wash it. Although that may be the case at times, it’s not always the reason for using it. I use it to prolong my hair condition between washes. Having platinum blonde hair is one of the trickiest hair colours to maintain, avoiding the brassy tones at all costs. Spreading my hair washes further apart is one way that I help prolong the cool tones in my hair. After this long intro to this post, I would love to tell you about four of the products that I think deserve medals in the dry shampoo category. Here are my picks for best dry shampoo!
R+Co Death Valley Dry Shampoo
If I had to narrow it down to only one item for this list, it would be the dry shampoo from R+Co. I have been using this since about the summer and am completely head over heels in love with this dry shampoo. Invisible in your hair, amazing scent, and now a lot easier to access! A local salon in Hamilton now sells this brand of hair care, along with more Toronto-based salons as well. I wanted to try this brand for a long time, and I am so happy that the dry shampoo lived up and exceeded my expectations. This is easily the product that I consider to be the best dry shampoo.
IGK Jet Lag Invisible Dry Shampoo
When I first started using this dry shampoo, I easily thought this would be my top favourite of the year. Invisible dry shampoo, great smell, great packaging. Any dry shampoo that I have used with a white residue instantly was thrown away (or gifted to a friend). This dry shampoo definitely raised the bar for me last year, and I look for much higher quality dry shampoos ever since.
Goldwell Kerasilk Repower Volume Dry Shampoo
This may be the most “salon-life” product that made the list, but for good reason! I was introduced to Goldwell and their amazing products this year on more than one occasion. Goldwell is an amazing hair care brand and their products go to prove it. This dry shampoo is invisible and adds quite a bit of volume to flat hair. It also helps protect hair colour from premature fading, all while maintaining a healthy shine. As I said, this is a salon-quality product right here!
Aveda Shampure Dry Shampoo
This is the most recent dry shampoo discovery for me, having used it the least in comparison to the others on this list. The packaging is not new to me, as I have tried a few dry shampoos that have a similar squeeze and release application. I find that the powder in this Aveda product does the best as far as dealing with any excess oil and helping provide a lot of volume. Aveda has always been a great brand with amazing ingredients in their hair products. I am happy to have this dry shampoo in my line-up now!
