Laura: ‘Dry shampoo is my greasy hair quick fix’
Running late to work and skipping the shower? We’ve all been there. Suddenly have a huge meeting straightaway? Well, Laura’s definitely been there – and it’s why she always keeps Dove dry shampoo with her.
“I never know when I might need dry shampoo, so I always have a can just in case. Especially at work – like when I suddenly get pulled into big client pitches. Last time I definitely wasn’t prepared for it… I’d skipped washing my hair that morning (an extra 15 minutes in bed means way too much to me), so I was panicking about not looking on my A game. A spray of dry shampoo and a bit of eyeliner is more than enough to pull together a casual outfit, if you ask me. It might be a little thing, but it made me feel really confident instead of keeping quiet in the back of the room.”
Laura’s handbag hero: For an invisible quick fix for greasy hair, go for Dove Refresh + Care Unscented Dry Shampoo. It’ll leave your hair looking freshly washed, but with no scent: there’s nothing to give you away.
Aline: ‘Dry shampoo helps me maintain my curls’
Wondering how to keep your hair from getting greasy with oily hair remedies, even when you’re trying to cut down on washes? Curly-haired Aline has the perfect solution.
“I love my curly hair – except on the days I have to wash it. Here’s how it goes: after I wash my hair, I use a diffuser to half dry my hair so it doesn’t go super frizzy and lose its natural shape. Then, I’ll spend a good half day just shaping the curls around my fingers while they dry. If I don’t, only half of my curls get great ringlets while the other half have sad, flat waves. It takes a lot of commitment, and once it’s in shape, I’ll do anything to keep it that way. So for at least three days after that, I spray dry shampoo into my roots and massage it in to absorb oil instead of washing. It keeps my hair fresh and helps keeps the volume at my roots: all the things I need, without washing. It’s really helped me go longer without washing my hair, which is a life-saver!”
Aline’s handbag hero: If you’re trying to keep your hair looking and feeling clean to maintain volume and bounce, go for Dove Refresh + Care Volume & Fullness Dry Shampoo to remove oil. You’ll be left with body and bounce, as well as a total refresh.
Natasha: ‘Dry shampoo helped me become more outgoing’
It’s 5pm, and you’ve been invited to dinner in an hour, but you hadn’t planned on a night out – and neither had your hair. Natasha’s been there.
“Dry shampoo is the biggest part of my emergency getting ready kit. After I’d broken up with my boyfriend, I had a lot of free time so I decided to fill it by just saying ‘yes’ whenever I was invited anywhere. Obviously, this new plan meant that occasionally I had a surprise invite I hadn’t exactly prepared for (I don’t know a single woman who has the time to wash her hair every day!) and that’s where dry shampoo came in: having a quick fix for greasy hair on hand to quickly freshen up my hair meant that I could keep saying ‘yes’ and be as confident as possible.”
Natasha’s handbag hero: Getting all dressed up for a big night out? Try something with a great scent, such as Dove Refresh + Care Fresh Coconut Dry Shampoo, to give your routine a tropical twist. You’ll look fresh, and smell even fresher.
