The best dry shampoos: Personal hygiene doesn't have to go out of the window during festival season
Rain or shine, the summer season has come to be defined by the myriad music festivals that pepper the calendar from here till September.
The word 'glamping' may cause an involuntary shudder, but so, too, does the idea that all personal hygiene needs to go out of the window as soon as the tent poles go up.
Seasoned festival-goers will know how best to avoid trench foot in wet weather or getting too whiffy when it's warm, and top of the list is a can of dry shampoo, which has gone from chalky and naff to almost indispensable in recent years.
