Being able to wash and dry your hair in peace is probably a thing of the past, and sometimes it's just easier not washing it, which is why a great dry shampoo should be in every mum's bathroom cabinet. 

Not only will it mop up oil, revive limp roots, inject texture and movement, but it gives staying power and grip to ponytails and updos.
