I rarely use dry shampoo, with the reason being that I have an easily irritated sensitive scalp (which dry shampoos tend to aggravate) and I usually wash my hair on an every day basis. However, there are inevitably times, particularly when travelling, that dry shampoos come into their own. The Philip Kingsley version appealed to me because the brand is known for its emphasis on good scalp health and I'd heard that their One More Day Dry Shampoo is less likely to irritate than most.
In keeping with the brand's image, the design on the packaging is minimalist and it's unlikely to have caught my attention on a shop or salon shelf if I wasn't already a fan of the brand. Having said that, I appreciated the aerosol spray functionality, which allows for a targeted application and also liked that the 50ml can is travel friendly. The directions are clear and easy to follow.
Both upon and following application, the scent is incredibly subtle and I was barely able to detect it. Although Philip Kingsley One More Day Dry Shampoo is suitable for use on colour treated hair, I noticed a white cast on my natural brunette hair if I sprayed too much product. For this reason, I'd recommend applying with a light hand. That said, the white cast was effortlessly massaged away and I was pleased that I couldn't detect any sticky or gritty product residue. It's not the most volumising product (and nor does it claim to be) but it did help to freshen my style and add a subtle yet revitalising lift to third day hair. The main benefit of this product is that it is very effective at absorbing grease and therefore, I feel that the One More Day name is fitting.
Philip Kingsley One More Day Dry Shampoo is available in a travel friendly 50ml size for £6.50 or 200ml for £14.50.
