If there's a product you absolutely need in your bathroom cabinet, it's dry shampoo. Even if you're not one of the many women who don't manage to keep their greasy roots at bay all week long.

Here's why dry shampoo is so much more than, well, just dry shampoo.

Fix greasy roots


The obvious one, yes it'll give you fresher hair between washes and soak up oil at the roots.



Add volume and root lift


If your hair keeps falling flat, don't reach for the hairspray. Apply dry shampoo to the roots first, massage it in, then apply a bit more dry shampoo to the mid lengths of your hair. Work it all through your hair with your hands, and check out that volume boost.

Add texture to bed hair


Whether you're rocking Kate Moss inspired bed head hair, tousled beach waves or 60s style Brigitte Bardot 'I woke up like this' glamour, roughing up your look with dry shampoo will give you 'roll in the hay' texture, without the weight of other products.

Make updos last longer


One of the reasons updos fall flat, come loose or just simply fail, is because your hair is too soft and silky. Give your strands extra 'grip' without any backcombing, by working some dry shampoo through your roots and lengths first.
