Dry Shampoo

Everything old is new again!  Dry shampoo is popular again. Anyone remember Pssssst dry shampoo?  It's still around!  

Dry shampoo is supposed to clean and freshen your hair without water removing oils between shampoos. They contain ingredients such as talc, starches, ground oatmeal, baking soda and clay. I never remember having much success with them.  My hair would feel like it had a coating on it. There are lots of new formulas now though. 

Dry shampoo is also being used by stylists as a styling tool on clean hair to add more volume and to help up styles hold better. To apply, start by combing your hair to remove and tangles. Then, spray the dry shampoo onto the hair near the roots. Massage it in and wait 5-10 minutes. You are now ready to brush it out. Give a good brushing then you can restyle your hair.  It can be a bit messy so use dry shampoo in an area that is easily cleaned up. 

Psssssst $7.00, Batiste $8.00, Salon Graphix $8 and Tresseme Fresh Start $6 are available in you local drug store.  Some other brands are Oscar Blandi $ 23, Rene Furterer Nutria Dry Shampoo $24, Aveda Pure Abundance Hair Potion $23, TIGI Bed Head Rockaholic Dirty Little Secret $18.00. You can find many of these on and at salons and at drug and super stores.

Have a Beautiful Hair Day!
