Review: tried and tested dry shampoo!

Okay, so after my last post about dry shampoo I raced out to the shops this week in search of some dry shampoo to try for myself.

I wasn't planning on finding anything at my local Coles supermarket but when I was doing my weekly grocery shop I found some Toni & Guy dry shampoo in the hair care section. Score! I was planning on raiding price line but I thought to save myself an extra trip to town I would just settle for the supermarket stuff.

I used it for the first time yesterday and am now I'm in love. Dry shampoo is my new best friend! It's genius!

At first I was a little unsure how to use the stuff since it comes in an aerosol can. All I did was shake it up and spray it on my roots in problem areas like the front of my hair near my face where I feel like it always looks oiliest and some through the bulk of my hair to "spruce" it up.

It smells so yummy! I felt like my hair smelt yummy all day which helps with that paranoid feeling that your hair is in between washes and looks yuck! It also doesn't look yuck! The shampoo absorbs any oil that might be there and makes your hair look yummy as usual.

For around $15 I am sold! I'm sure that there are plenty of other cheaper brands out there but in the mean time this will suit me!

Another tip I picked up on is to style your hair according to where you feel your problem areas are whilst in between washes. Since I feel like my problem area is at the front, I take notes from Miss Lauren Conrad and pin back the areas that might look a little oily, easy!

I don't feel so bad about not washing my hair every second day now! I'm actually kind of excited to not wash it so I can use my new can of dry shampoo! haha 

Oh, also folks - today is Jeans for Genes day! I hope you don some cute jeans today to raise awareness for the Children's Medical Research Institute! I have no jeans on right now but will be rocking my skinny black jeans tonight for a friends farewell dinner! Get into the spirit loves!! x



  1. I always use dry shampoo! it’s great for those in between days isn’t it? I find it helps when putting my hair up too, gives it a bit more texture. I usually get Fudge or Tigi from Hairtrade as that is the cheapest place you can get it at the moment x

    1. Thanks Kate, I haven't heard of Hairtrade before? I might have to go and check it out!
      Thanks for commenting :) x

  2. Glad you had some success with this! I tried the Batiste Tropical & also the Batiste Brown one.
    The tropical smells AMAZING and I found the smell lingered all day so I think psychologically that made me feel my hair was clean! Didn't get any of the white residue as i sprayed it from a good distance away and didn't use too much. Love the volume it gave my hair! Didn't love the smell of the brown one was much, I guess because it is brown you could use a little more without the fear of residue. After using the dry shampoo the front of my hair didn't have that lank, unwashed look to it! Would definitely repurchase both of these.
    It is still killing me a little bit not to be washing my hair every day but I do think my hair is slowly getting used to it!

    1. How much was your Batiste? I'd been keen to check it out too! Mine smelled so yummy as well! It totally takes your mind off thinking that your hair is not clean hey?! I didn't get any white residue either so I think I've found a good one! It has some hold to it as well so it can almost double as a hair spray if I ever get stuck! lol

    2. The tropical can was about $3-4 (it's a little purse sized can) and the brown one (bigger can) was on sale for $5-6. I think my hair is slowly being 'trained' but i still feel a little bit dirty!
