3 for Tuesday: Three dry shampoos that are better than your average


by Aisling Keenan
22nd Sep 2020

Dry shampoos are known as hair saviours, rescuing greasy locks from the depths. Here are the three that, I’ll admit, I’m probably overly reliant on…


I don’t go one week, or even one day sometimes, without using dry shampoo. For that reason, as you can imagine, I’ve tried a very significant amount of them. So here are three I’m into recently alongside some great water-saving tips (which is a great way to avoid hair washing — you’re helping save water!)

Joico Weekend Hair Dry Shampoo

€19.95 from salons and beautyfeatures.ie

What I love about this one is that it reminds me of my all-time love, Kevin Murphy Doo.Over, except it’s a more literal dry shampoo rather than a texture spray. I love that it contains an encapsulated fragrance, meaning that it can release fresh fragrance whenever you touch or brush your hair, making sure you have a clean scent all day long. And it doesn’t have that tell-tale dry shampoo smell. We all know the one.

Primark X AF Fresh Dry Shampoo

€3.50 from Penneys

Recently launched into Penneys, Andrew Fitzsimons’ haircare range is selling out all over the place. I love the grips, the tools and of course… the dry shampoo. It’s got such a glam vibe, which is not always something that can be said for dry shampoos. The whole range is spot on. Penneys/Primark getting it right once again with their finger on the beauty pulse.

Klorane Nettle Dry Shampoo

€11.50 from boots.ie

I am truly obsessed with Klorane’s entire dry shampoo range. I keep them stocked up and never let myself be without a bottle somewhere. Klorane also go above and beyond when it comes to helping the planet, and with their dry shampoo relaunch recently came this info, which I think we could all make use of right now. Here are their water-saving suggestions.

  1. Turn off the tap:

Sounds obvious but by turning off the tap while you brush your teeth, lather your shampoo, leave your conditioner or hair mask get to work, you can save quite a few litres of water each day.

  1. Dry Shampoo Challenge:

Avoid washing your hair just once a week, using dry shampoo in its place and save up to 500 litres per year!

  1. Shorter showers:

On average, a five-minute shower consumes 60 to 200 litres of water. For the day you’re not shampooing your hair in the shower, try to cut your shower time in half. Play a great song that is under 3 minutes long and have a bop and a singalong while you’re at it – a great way to start the day!

  1. Wash your veggies and feed your plants:

Instead of running your vegetables under the tap to clean them, washing all that nutrient-rich soil down the drain, wash them over a basin and use the water for your plants.

  1. Check your pipes:

Water leaks, even minor ones, contribute to a huge amount of water loss and wastage. Have a plumber come around to your house or office to check everything is in working order.
