The product

Dry shampoo is a cult favourite the world over for a reason. The ingenious invention can refresh a blowout in a flash and is the one product that can save you from that hair-washing sesh you’ve been putting off for days.

Waterless have cornered dry-styling with their latest release of dry shampoos and conditioner, bringing lacklustre locks back from the brink in the nick of time.

Waterless Dry Shampoo No Residue is a tried and true, no residue dry shampoo formula that absorbs oil, giving roots a much-needed refresh. Waterless Dry Shampoo Foam utilises a gentle foaming formula to cleanse hair of excess oil, impurities and dirt for that post-shower fresh feel. And lastly, Waterless Dry Conditioner Instant Moisture is a weightless leave-in conditioner that can be applied to dry ends, replenishing lost moisture and adding shine and softness.

Our panel of Review Crew® testers put this dry-styling range to the test.

The panel

Beauty Crew sent Waterless Dry Shampoo No Residue, Waterless Dry Shampoo Foam and Waterless Dry Conditioner Instant Moisture to a panel of women aged 18 to 39 who needed products that could extend wear time post-styling.

The lowdown

Here’s what the Review Crew® loved about Waterless Dry Shampoo No Residue, Waterless Dry Shampoo Foam and Waterless Dry Conditioner Instant Moisture.

Waterless Dry Shampoo No Residue: Those of our members with darker hair shades noted how impressed they were with the no residue formula, simply massaging the spray product into roots to absorb excess oil.

Waterless Dry Shampoo Foam: Though a number of reviewers had never tried a foaming dry shampoo before, they were pleasantly surprised by the unusual format, and noted that it worked just as well as a traditional formula.

Waterless Dry Conditioner Instant Moisture: For our members who struggle with dry ends, this dry conditioner was a godsend. It added much-needed moisture and shine back into hair for instant revival.

The verdict

“My hair type is curly with oily roots. [Waterless Dry Shampoo No Residue is] such an easy product to use. Shake well as with anything that you are going to spray, with your hands separate your hair so your roots are showing in sections and spray from about 20 cm away. I just rubbed my fingertips to massage it in. It's alcohol and sulphate free so it's really nice especially because I am pregnant so I am conscious about what I use these days… and it's quite affordable for something that really doesn't leave any residue!”

“[Waterless Dry Shampoo Foams] use of natural and sustainable ingredients make it feel that much better to use. The shampoo did not fail to cleanse, hydrate and refresh my hair at the roots! It didn’t dry it out and remove the moisture, but rather made my scalp feel super clean! The scent of the product is also really nice and makes my hair smell amazing!”

“I was excited to use this product as I’ve never used a dry conditioner foam before. I was a bit hesitant as most products weigh my hair down and make it look oily and dirty. This product however exceeded my expectations. It was perfect for my dry split ends and works really well when your hair is frizzy and dry from different climates. I didn’t put this product through the roots of my hair, only through the ends and it added so much moisture to my hair without leaving it oily. It added instant shine and renewal.”
