Dry Shampoo and Why You Should Use It. Fashion Tip Tuesday. Beauty Tip.

Let's be honest. Ok, I'LL be honest. I wash my hair, dare I say, rarely?
Maybe it's the ONE thing to love about my curly hair. No oil. None. It's super dry and begs to be left alone. But it goes through phases. First day..curly. Second day…wavy. Third day…needs a flat iron. Fourth day…dry shampoo or maybe wash, but washing is so much work!
Dry shampoo. Game changer. Why didn't I discover this sooner?
What makes it so great is that it actually soaks up oil, and cleans hair…without getting it wet. I know it sounds too good to be true, but it really works. And…it leaves hair smelling really awesome.
Of course, not all dry shampoos are created equal. I only know what I have tried. And what I have read. When I was ready to give it a shot I turned to my faithful beauty advisor. Birchbox. {{They haven't led me astray yet.}} If you don't know my passion for my Birchbox, you will soon.
Anyway, I purchased Klorane - it was a Best of Beauty winner from Allure - and Birchbox along with their readers highly recommended it. I love it because it's very natural. Not a bunch of ingredients I can't pronounce. $19.50. Pricey…but it has lasted me quite a long time.
I'll admit…I was still skeptical. Until I worked up the nerve to actually use it. Oh.my.word. I tried it on 3rd day hair. Lifting up the top layer of my hair and spraying it on the roots. It gave me body (remember I'm on straight day) it looked clean…and it smelled awesome! This stuff really IS the bomb diggity! This photo is 4 days after my best hair day ever - photo posted last week. Pretty sure it looks clean and healthy!
Because I'm still a novice, I did some research for you…you're welcome…to find out other top contenders.
Lush Cosmetics No Drought Dry Shampoo Smells great. Blends in to hair. Very light. So what if you have … ahem … aging hair. Come on, our hair ages too. Nexxus Youth Renewal Dry Shampoo is recommended by Birchbox to give a boost in glossiness and manageability! It must renew your youth too…since it says it in the title and everything.
Best bang for your buck? Dove Invigorating Dry Shampoo. Reviews say it works like a charm..but it smells really strong. If you like smell, then go for it. Now I know many of you are probably already on the Dry Shampoo band wagon…so it's your turn! Share your favorites in the comments…I want to know. WE want to know. I'm off…and yes, today is a Dry Shampoo day…you do the math! xooxox lisa
