Greasy hair can turn a first date into a last date, warrant painfully disapproving glances on the bus or, worse still, merit the nickname “chip pan”. So, why are increasing numbers of well-groomed women washing their hair only once a week? They have a secret weapon, of course – dry shampoo, ideal for creating fashionable retro dos, such as the Amy Winehouse beehive, that rely on a bit of grit for staying power.

Well, perhaps, it’s not quite so secret any more. Boots reports a 45% rise in sales of dry shampoo in the past year, suggesting that, far from being an excuse to go all Swampy, the new generation of dry shampoos offers a practical alternative to a daily wash and blow-dry. Rumour has it that Miuccia Prada’s handbag is never without a trusty can of Bumble and Bumble’s Brown Hair Powder.

In fact, Klorane Dry Shampoo was credited with helping stylists to create Kirsten Dunst’s deliciously powdered coiffeur in Marie Antoinette – a look that has since garnered its own underground following in clubs and on the burlesque scene.

But can this timesaver really substitute a proper shampoo and conditioner? “Ideally, hair should be washed on a daily basis,” says the trichologist Philip Kingsley. “Think how dirty your face gets at the end of the day – you can imagine how dirty your hair will be after a few days.”

    If you wash your hair daily it will rot, unless you blowdry it everyday and burn it: great advice Mr. trichologist! Scalp skin is very different than face skin, dammit, youre an expert! you should know better.

    i was always under the impression that washing your hair every day was damaging (and a pain in the ass). i have a lot of hair and wash mine only about every other day unless circumstances dictate otherwise. if i never had to wash and dry my hair again i would be thrilled.
