Beauty Review: Moroccanoil Dry Shampoo

This post is part of my Beauty Babes series and written by Kirsten Murphy Rossiter


Why use dry shampoo?

You’re in a rush and you have no time to wash your hair and make it look presentable… *ta-da* hello dry shampoo. I had one of those days recently and this product was my absolute life saver!

It is the perfect product to freshen up your hair in between washes, for when your hair is not super clean but not super dirty either. I wouldn’t use this as a replacement for a hair wash though.

It pumps up the volume. If your hair is feeling flat and limp, a little spray of dry shampoo to the roots, followed by a little massage with your fingertips adds instant volume.

It is a wonderful texturiser too. If your hair is squeaky clean and too soft to put up into an upstyle, it works well to add a little bit of “grit” as I like to call it. A spray of dry shampoo throughout the hair adds the perfect texture to help make your hair more manageable.


Moroccanoil Dry Shampoo comes in two shades one for Dark Tones and one for Light tones.

It contains rice starch, which absorbs oils and removes buildup, as well as Argan oil which is UV- protecting and conditioning, ensuring that your hair is not left looking dull.

Why I love it

First of all, I am a sucker for the Moroccanoil fragrance, I absolutely love it.

I love that this dry shampoo comes in different tones for different hair colours, so you are not stuck with the typical white residue left behind. The residue is not dark brown so it’s not completely invisible but it’s not a stark white either and the particles are so fine and powdery you can hardly see it on your hair.

For best results, apply it to your roots then massage it into your scalp as you would with normal shampoo and then brush it out.
