Lucy Adams, beauty director

“Not dry shampoo, but dry conditioner! I was intrigued when this landed on my desk so I had to try it. Applied to my dry ends Aveda’s Shampure Thermal Dry Conditioner, $35, adds instant moisture without the grease, smells delicious and perfectly perked up my tired ponytail.” Available from April 2017.

Batiste, $7.99, and Klorane, $14.99, are my go-tos.”

“I don’t use dry shampoo very much at all, as it makes my head feel itchy. Also, I wash my hair pretty much every day. But when I want extra oomph I use Oribe Dry texturizing spray which is part dry shampoo, part texturiser. It’s expensive, but I like it.”

Chloe Buttenshaw, fashion editor

Aveda Shampure, $30, I prefer a powder dry shampoo – I like the hold and grit it gives.”

Anna McClelland, branded content editor – beauty

“Klorane will always be my go to, but right now I’m loving the MoroccanOil Dark Tones Dry Shampoo, $39.95. It leaves zero residue, even in my brunette hair, and is designed to do away with the mousey dullness some dry shampoos give.”

Jana Pokorny, fashion director

Klorane Dry Shampoo for Brown to Dark Hair, $15.99 – I’ve just always used this one and whenever I try another it’s never as good.”

“I swear I’ve tried every supermarket dry shampoo in a bid to save money, but most of them smell so sickly sweet that they give me a headache. So Klorane is my go to now, though Evo’s Water Killer verision, $29.99,  is ideal when I want extra volume and am willing to shell out for it. And I’m not sure if this is just buying into the hype, but I’m desperate to try the new foamy one from Ouai.”  

Bree McDonald, fashion u0026 news editor

“As I bleach blonde I don’t usually require dry shampoo but between washes I opt for Christophe Robin Purifying Hair Finish Lotion with Sage Vinegar, $61.60.”

Erin Rooney, digital content producer

Aveda Shampure, $30: I actually got this as a present from my mum and love it – it’s a non-aerosol powder with a calming scent and you need so little of it that the bottle lasts for ages! It’s very subtle and easy on your hair.”
