If there’s one beauty item that you’ll find in almost every handbag at IMAGE HQ, it’s a bottle of dry shampoo. Whether we’re giving ourselves a break from over washing, or too stuck for time to go through the whole process of washing and blow-drying, but find that our hair is as limp and lifeless as a pair of wet socks, not to mention greasy enough for frying chips, there’s nothing quite like this hair care essential for a quick pick-me-up.
The only thing is that up until now, we’ve been quite limited in terms of choice when it comes to Dry Shampoo. While most people will bulk buy other well known products to get them through a bad hair day, the coconuty scent has become so synonymous with dry shampoo, that it’s almost sort of off putting (who wants to admit that today is their greasy hair day?). Thankfully, along comes Pantene Pro-V with three fantastic, affordable options that leave your hair smelling as though you’ve just come straight from the salon.
What makes this our favourite? Because you can’t see it, it doesn’t live your head with white powdery residue and, as we said, it smells gorgeous.
Here’s the science bit:
Pantene Pro-V’s Oil Absorber Technology uses blended modified and unmodified Tapioca Starch particles to absorb excess oils, dirt and grease on the hair. Emollients can interfere with cleaning; causing oil-absorbing particles to stick to the hair which leads to a visible residue. Without emollients, Pantene’s oil-absorbing Tapioca Starch particles are easily removed – for an exceptional clean, still providing softness, and with virtually no visible residue.
Pantene Pro-V Instant Refresh Dry Shampoo instantly revives limp, lifeless locks. Use Instant Refresh in-between washes to give hair a clean, refreshed feel.
Pantene Pro-V Volume Booster Dry Shampoo revives hair with light weight, leaving hair looking refreshed and with added volume in less than 10 minutes.
Pantene Pro-V Colour Saviour Dry Shampoo builds shine back into colour-treated hair; dry cleans hair and gives healthy-looking radiance.
Today we’ve tried both the Volume Booster and the Instant Refresh and, suffice to say, they both receive the IMAGE.ie stamp of approval. Bravo!
