However you ride, freshening up afterwards is an issue. Adele Mitchell seeks out the best options to get clean and fresh when washing isn’t an option.
Commuting to work is a wonderful thing – but once your ride is over the chances are you’re not going to be able to slip into a power shower and blow dry bar before you sit at your desk.
If you’ve ever finished a long ride coated in sweat and grime you’ll know just how uncomfortable and smelly you become if showering straight away isn’t an option.
And if you’re coated with mud or dust after a mountain bike ride and don’t want to be barred from every tea shop between the trail and home then you need to be able to remove the worst of it.
Thank goodness then for the ‘spruce me up in seconds’ wonders that are dry shampoo and dry shower products.
How to use dry shampoo:
Couldn’t be simpler really, just spray the powder into the roots of your needy hair, massage through the roots for a few moments then brush out. The powder absorbs excess oil and dirt, leaving your hair refreshed and clean.
Dry shampoo also adds body to your hair making it easier to style – it’s especially good for smoothed-back ponytails and up dos.
