Imagine this: your hair is all greased up from the long hours outside and it’s midnight by the time you reached home. Would you rather spend it in the bathroom and under the hair dryer or sleeping comfortably on your bed? Well, many would choose the latter because not everyone is blessed with ample time. However, we’re not asking you to leave your house the next day in the same state. Time to put dry shampoos into good use.

Dry shampoos may be something unheard of but we feel they deserve more recognition. They can transform your greasy locks to fresh salon-dried hair, add volume and also a life-saver when you only have five minutes to get ready in the morning. They are life-changing and we are not exaggerating, you just have to find the right formula.

Like the moisturisers and serums you see on the shelves, dry shampoos are now available in different variants. There is one just for oil absorption, another just for volume. They also come in different textures — there’s the usual spray form you often see and a powder-form that’s a bit hard to come by. These are also available in a huge variety of scents and we’re pretty sure we don’t have to elaborate more on that.

Here are the newest dry shampoos and some of our all-time favourites.
