A while ago I was contacted, asking if I wanted to review Philip Kingsley's new dry shampoo called "One More Day". It's an expensive one, at £14.00, more than the usual Batiste. So I thought I'd give it a go and see if it's worth the money.
First up, here's my greasy, 3 day old hair...
and here is it after I've used One More Day dry shampoo as it states and then styled my hair
A bit about it:
On the bottle, it says washing your hair every day is the best for you, but when that isn't possible then this is the solution. It contains Zinc PCA and Allantoin which it claims are soothing and calming to the scalp.
I've personally been avoiding dry shampoo recently. I was a bit of an addict, using it every day even when my hair was clean to volumise. It was drying out my hair and caused me to have a bit chopped off last time I went to the hairdressers. Plus I got a really itchy scalp. When on holiday, I read a magazine article which claimed it creates a thick layer on your scalp which is drying, irritating, and may even slow hair growth by preventing the hairs from coming out the scalp! Scary stuff. Therefore I immediately liked it said not to use every day.
The smell was light, I didn't find it overpowering. I caught whiffs of it every now and again. The spray came out more finely than I'm used to with Batiste so I didn't use too much and make my roots go white. For a while I wondered if it was because this dry shampoo isn't white so I sprayed it on my black top... mistake. It definitely does turn white if you put too much on, just like Batiste.
This is my hair before - yuck. Then after I had sprayed it in and left for 10 seconds as it says on the bottle. The bottom picture is after brushing and styling. Overall you can see it works well, leaving my hair looking really clean. It also doesn't leave the grey that my Batiste normally does, and any residue is more easily brushed out. I didn't feel itchy when I wore it, and I've read other reviews which say it's the best dry shampoo for irritable scalps.
My advice would be to buy the travel size for £6.50 to give it a good try and review before getting the bigger size. It is a great dry shampoo, but if you are on a budget, you may want to try it out before you fork out for the big size.
