Sometimes you find yourself mid-week rushing from work to evening events, and it's the least you can do to pull together the right office-to-cocktails outfit, never mind the mess that's going on with your hair come the end of the day. But there is one product that always comes in handy when you're too busy to run home for a full shower: dry shampoo. It's been on the market for a long time (centuries, some argue), but its recently had a boom in popularity because many beauty experts have advised that washing your locks everyday is bad for it. So dry shampoo has become a go-to solution for keeping your 'do looking fresh between washes during the week.  

So what is this magical potion? Essentially, it's just shampoo without the water, which means the dry formula will lightly clean your hair without you having to wash, rinse and repeat. It's a mixture of fragrance, absorbents, solvents and conditioners, and the way it works is by soaking up all the surface dirt and grease from your roots and scalp. Within seconds of applying the power (and brushing it through), you'll look as though you've just stepped out of the salon. 

You can find dry shampoo in various forms, such as sprays and powers, and it is important to note that it can leave a white residue if over-applied, so be sure to pick up a powder in a similar shade to your hair color and give yourself a once-over in the mirror before heading out.
