Product Review: Tresemme Cleansing Dry Shampoo

I’ve always been a “wash my hair every day unless I don’t need to leave the house or see anyone who doesn’t already love me a lot” kinda gal. Lately however, I’ve become time-poor in the mornings (cold weather = me not wanting to leave the bed) and it’s thrown a spanner into my daily hair washing routine. I’ve been forced to become an every-other-day washer. I know, right? Who even am I. Anyway, not washing my hair every day has left me with a flat and oily hair situation. I work in a professional environment, and I can’t afford to look completely disgusting when I rock up to the office. Which is a pretty accurate description of how I look when I don’t wash my hair. Enter DRY SHAMPOO. I’ve tried quite a few dry shampoos in my time, but honestly this is the best I’ve come across so far. It smells nice, it helps (to a point) control oiliness, and it adds a decent amount of much needed texture to help battle the flatness of my annoyingly fine hair. Another plus is that when you spray it into your hair and rub it into your roots, it doesn’t leave you looking like you’ve got a bad case of dandruff. It’s also budget friendly, which for me at the moment is hugely important. The Tresemme Instant Refresh Cleansing Dry Shampoo retails for $10.99 and is available for purchase from Priceline (please note: product was supplied for consideration for review).
