It’s safe to say dry shampoo is the one hair product getting us through lockdown. Just as we’re giving our skin a break from heavy make-up, we’re taking this opportunity to give our hair a longer break between washes, the consensus amongst haircare professionals being that over-zealous washing could be drying and damaging.
So, on those ‘between washes’ days, we’re reaching for our trusted bottle of dry shampoo to disguise any oily roots and add a bit of volume to our hair before Zoom meetings. And we just have to tell you about one of our favourite bottles of the stuff that we couldn’t be without.
Amika’s Perk Up Dry Shampoo doesn’t leave any chalky residue on your roots – the formula doesn’t use any tell-tale starchy aluminium or talc – and instead uses sea buckthorn berry and rice starch to absorb excess oil from your scalp while boosting volume and adding healthy-looking shine.
No need to worry if you have dark hair either, as the invisible formula doesn’t leave behind any white residue, like many other dry shampoos do. Plus, like all Amika products, it smells *amazing*.
And it’s not just us who love it. The clever dry shampoo has shot to bestseller status, with a bottle of Perk Up Dry Shampoo selling every minute and stacking up over 93,000 glowing reviews across retailing sites.
‘Smells great, blends into hair very well and doesn’t feel sticky/stiff. Doesn’t weigh your hair down either. 5 stars!’ wrote one customer.
Another buyer raves about using the dry shampoo post-workout, saying: ‘I love a lunch break workout, but can never be bother washing, drying and styling my hair before heading back to my desk. This is the ideal midday pick me up after a quick 30 minute spin class!’
Amika dry shampoo is also vegan and cruelty-free, and doesn’t have any sulphates, parabens or similar nasty ingredients.
Basically, believe the hype, this stuff is seriously good!
