I like Superdrug's own brand dry shampoo, no white cast like Batiste has. Avoid the Co Lab/ Ruth Crilley ones, they smell dreadful and didn't really do anything for my hair. I would also avoid any of the coloured ones if you have dark hair, they make getting caught in the rain a somewhat messy experience.
I really like the CoLab one too, I find it really works, and the Batiste always left a white residue in my hair. I got a travel sized Aussie one reduced in the supermarket, and it was awful, actually felt like it made my hair more greasy! Went straight in the bin.
Batiste works for me. I always flip my whole head forward and apply it to hair dangling vertically down from my scalp, and spraying from behind so that if there is any residue it's somewhere it won't be seen (but a good scrumple will get rid of residue anyway). It doesn't work nearly so well if you spray onto a right-way-up head from above or the side.
The Moroccan Oil one is AMAZING. My hair is very fine and easily looks greasy at the roots and I need to wash it every day. So I was dreading a long full day at work followed by a late departing 10 hour overnight flight with my boss as I knew my hair would look awful by the time we got back to London. But I used some Moroccan Oil dry shampoo part way through the flight and my hair not only looked great on landing (lunchtime the next day), it stayed looking great until the next day. I'm definitely a convert.
Previously I'd used Klorane (ok), Oscar Biandi (ok) and Aussie (dreadful!)
