Baby, It's cold outside...

In this freezing cold weather getting out of bed is hard enough as it is – hitting the snooze alarm too many times and over sleeping for me often means leaving the house with damp hair (which is so not good if trying to avoid the dreaded winter cold!).

If only there were a solution? Sometimes hair just needs a little refreshing rather than a wash and blow dry – the products I tested were talcum powder (Simple - baby talc), dry shampoo (Batiste Boho dry shampoo), and dry foam shampoo (Tresemme dry foam shampoo).

The results:
Simple Baby Talc
I’ve heard that you can use normal talcum powder on your hair as the talc soaks up excess moisture, however I was left with a grey tone to my hair (great for granny fancy dress) and little shine. If you’re desperate though – better than a greasy mop! – (£1.99 for 100grams) I'd rate this product, if used as a dry shampoo with a 4/10.

Batiste Boho dry shampoo
My favourite of the 3 products,  it had a lovely smell, and it was much easier to apply an even coating of the product without making a mess! (£2.30 for 150ml) – I'd rate this product a 9/10.

Dry foam shampoo

A very interesting product! A bit more expensive than the other two, but I think worth it. Especially if you oversleep after a night out and have a bit too much product in your hair! It really gets rid of any excess hairspray so you can avoid the dreaded crispy look. (£4.29 for 200ml) I'd rate this product a 7/10.

Not quite as good as a proper wash and blow-dry, but a hair must have all the same (would be great for camping!)
