Festivals are one of the highlights of summer, but they do come with their beauty challenges. The availability of showers (and time to have one, when there’s so much to see and do) can see your usual beauty routine fall by the wayside, and one of things that can suffer most is your hair – especially if you’re lucky enough to work up a sweat in the sunshine.
Fortunately for bad hair days everywhere, not just at festivals, dry shampoos have come on in leaps and bounds and are no longer going to leave your hair with streaks of residue and a powdery, gritty feel. They are a great quick fix if you don’t have time for a shampoo and a good hair pick-me-up on those days when it’s just looking a little flat or greasy. Here are three of our favourites.
Joico Instant Refresh Dry Shampoo
This clear spray means no more white residue which can be the dry shampoo bane of brunettes in particular, and it promises a freshness and gloss similar to a proper wash. Tip your head upside down and apply in layers and you’ll also get your volume back. A trusty little hair care stand by.

Klorane Gentle Dry Shampoo with Oat Milk
For an ultra-gentle dry clean, try Klorane’s dry shampoo with oat milk. Just as it sounds, the oat milk will help to soften and protect your hair while the shampoo’s super absorbent ingredients soak up dirt and grease.
Buy: £7.50 for 150ml. John Lewis.
Philip Kingsley One More Day Dry Shampoo
Definitely our star buy, this dry shampoo won’t let you down. It’s light, residue free and gives your hair a lovely scent while it soaks up the oil and dirt and leaves your hair looking shiny and clean between washes.
