No matter your styling preferences, a good dry shampoo is bound to be a key part of your hair wardrobe. Everyone knows that second day hair is the best, am I right?
Dry shampoos fulfil one main function: to absorb excess oiliness and allow you to extend the time between hair washing by another day. Philip Kingsley has taken this concept to heart in the development of their first ever dry shampoo, and have very aptly named it One More Day (shop here). However, One More Day does so much more. Created by the world’s leading trichologists, it’s designed to be as much a scalp and hair treatment as it is an oily hair regulator, promising to soothe, balance and gently volumise the hair for the ultimate style refresh.
Like all Philip Kingsley formulas it’s packed with some powerhouse hair-helping ingredients, including flake-fighting zinc PCA, naturally healing allantoin, and anti-inflammatory bisabolol. If your current dry shampoo leaves your scalp feeling a tad itchy between washes, then this is the formula for you. The combination of soothing ingredients and the lightweight texture means that it’s almost imperceptible on the scalp, which is just what you want when you’re trying to simulate the effect of freshly washed hair.
The scent is very lovely, too. Fresh and lightly floral, it has enough substance about it that it will effectively neutralise hair odour, but it is mild enough that it won’t overpower your perfume.
I’ve been using mine daily since I got it, and not always as a traditional dry shampoo. It’s so lightweight and workable that I actually use it as a style prep on my freshly washed hair to give it a bit of shape and texture. I give my paddle brush a quick spray, and then swoosh (that’s a technical term, don’t you know) through my hair from the roots to the mid sections, avoiding my dry ends. When my hair starts to get a little oily at the roots, I spritz One More Day straight onto them from about 30cm away. A quick massage and a brush, and my hair is swishy once more.
