With Malaysia’s humid weather, we sometimes struggle to keep our hair fresh all day long. For those with voluminous hair and normal scalps, count yourselves lucky! Even though we wish we could wash our hair every day, it can end up harming it instead. Dry shampoo is formulated to strip excess oils from our scalp and overusing it can cause our scalp to become too dry. We want to keep at least the important oils in our hair! These oils protect our scalp from breaking and can allow it to shine as well. Exhausting as it may be to wash your hair, especially the girls with long hair out there, we just might have a solution to your woes! Over at Beauty Insider, we have curated a list of dry shampoo you can use for a quick touch up!

What is Dry Shampoo

Dry shampoo is essentially a powder that is able to absorb oils. Sort of like an oil blotting sheet, but for your hair. Dry shampoo also has the benefit to help soak up excess oils in your hair, without getting your hair wet! Hence, it makes it a great product to have when you’ve overslept! Thus, it saves you time from having to wash your hair on a busy day.

Using dry shampoo can also help give your hair a break from shampoo. If you have an oily scalp (like me), you might have the frustration of your hair being oily literally a day after you’ve washed it! Sigh, it’s a sad fact and that is where dry shampoo’s come to the rescue! Personally, I have used dry shampoo on multiple occasions when I just need to freshen it up, or if it’s just a tad bit too oily. Now, let’s get into our list of the best dry shampoos in Malaysia!

1. Batiste Dry Shampoo
