The top 10 dry shampoos – and new Tresemme fresh start

We’ve blogged before about weird ways to wash your hair, in particular the hot trend of “dry shampooing.” Well, it looks like it’s time to update our list of the Top 10 Dry Shampoos because one of the biggest brands in the category has launched another one: Tresemme now has their version called Fresh Start.

Tresemme Fresh Start Science

Fresh Start uses technology that is similar to other dry shampoos: it’s a powder based aerosol spray. But while most competitors use either one or two powders (usually rice starch or Aluminum Starch Octenylsuccinate), Tresemme’s formula contains three or four, depending on the levels they’re using. Theoretically, this blend of powders could do a better job of absorbing oil which makes sense from a hair cleansing perspective.


Hydrofluorocarbon 152A, Alcohol Denat., Zea Mays (Corn) Starch, Magnesium Stearate, Aluminum Starch Octenylsuccinate, Benzyl Alcohol, PPG-3 Benzyl Ether Myristate, Fragrance (Parfum), Silica Dimethyl Silylate, PVP, Kaolin, Linalool, Limonene, Butylphenyl Methylpropional, Amyl Cinnamal, Hexyl Cinnamal, Citronellol, Geraniol, Glycerin, Citrus Grandis (Grapefruit) Fruit Extract, Citrus Tangerina (Tangerine) Peel Extract.

If you’re among those who like alternatives to classical “wet” shampooing then Tresemme Fresh Start may be worth a try.
