I hate washing my hair. I know, I’m weird. I love how it feels after it’s freshly washed and clean, but I cannot stand drippy wet hair. It makes me uncomfortable. Also, I hate how long it takes to blow dry, style, curl and/or straighten and make yourself presentable. I’d rather be sleeping. Dry shampoo = my best friend. However, like everything else, not all dry shampoos are created equal. Over the years, I’ve tried many (many) brands and formulas. Some work okay, but smell like a musty old grandma (you know exactly what I’m talking about) and others just make it look like you’ve dumped a bottle of baby powder on your head. Not cute.
The best one I’ve used so far:
This. Stuff. Is. Amazing. There’s a whole science behind it (yeah, no idea how it works) but it absorbs sweat AND oil, and leaves your hair feeling clean and fresh. Let’s be honest, nothing can replace a good ole fashion shampooing, but if you’re lazy (like me) and don’t want to look like a greasy drowned rat, this might be your jam. Shake it up, hold 6 inches or so from your head and spray in the roots. Wait a few seconds and lightly massage your scalp with your fingers (or brush) and – VOILA. You’re good to go. It is white at first, but disappears right away and does not leave a gray residue.
I got the small bottle to try ($12) and plan on getting the full size when it runs out. Note: I’m not a huge fan of the scent. It’s bearable, and definitely not offensive – but something to be aware of if you’re hypersensitive to fragrance.
Cut to the bitchy resting face. Today is Monday. I got my hair/roots colored and washed on Friday. 2.5 days of using dry shampoo. Pretty good, right? And yes – I shower everyday. Please. And yes – I’m wearing a cat necklace.
Happy Monday! xo
