David Mallett Volume Powder (£30)
"I haven't noticed people using as much dry shampoo [in Paris]," Polès continues. This sentiment rings true, as I recall a conversation I had with Paris-based stylist David Mallett on the same subject. He explained how, when formulating his Volume Powder (£30), he had to take a lot of precautions. "French women won't use just anything," he noted. "I had to make it small, nondescript, chic." He decided to call it "volume powder" over "dry shampoo" for that very reason. It dispenses a small, quick puff of product and never makes a mess.
