Dry shampoo is an absolute must-have in my haircare routine as my hair is naturally oily and needs to be freshened up between washes, and as much as I love the range from Batiste, I’ve decided to try some of the other dry shampoos out there. I was recently scanning the Superdrug shelves for a new dry shampoo to test out and ended up choosing two from Superdrug’s own haircare range. There are a number of scents and formulas to choose from, and in the end I decided to try the Killer Volume and Cocoa Brownie sprays.
Killer Volume (currently 95p) – As well as my hair being quite oily it’s also naturally straight and flat, so this means I’m always on the lookout for a product that will give my roots some oomph. A volumising dry shampoo sounded great as it would be killing two birds with one stone, but unfortunately this spray did nothing for my hair in terms of refreshing my roots and leaving my hair looking any cleaner.
The spray definitely adds volume to your roots but it’s also worth nothing that it leaves your hair feeling like straw as it’s really sticky and crispy on the roots. It’s safe to say that I wouldn’t repurchase this dry shampoo as the stickiness makes my hair look even dirtier than before, and the straw-like roots are really hard to work with.
Cocoa Brownie (currently 95p) – The second spray I picked up is specially formulated for brunettes as it is brown in colour, and while it adds some colour and texture to your hair, again it leaves your roots feeling really sticky and even worse than they were before. For that reason I couldn’t class this spray as a dry shampoo as it certainly doesn’t leave my hair looking any cleaner.
Unfortunately the brown colour is a bit of a nightmare to work with as it transfers onto your hands, pillowcases and anything else that will touch your hair after using the spray. It’s also very visible when it comes to washing your hair afterwards as it could be confused with washing a dark dye out of your hair, so make sure to give your bath or shower a good clean after washing out this product. Once again I wouldn’t recommend picking up this spray as it was more hassle than it was worth and just didn’t do anything for my hair in terms of refreshing it.
Have you tried anything from the Superdrug dry shampoo range?
