Review: Dry Shampoos

Everyone has those days where their hair is limp, lifeless, and a little greasy. Luckily, for those second-day locks, there is dry shampoo :)
I personally love this stuff. My hair tends to get tired and lay flat a lot. Especially after being slept on all night and collecting oils throughout the night.

To use your dry shampoo, it’s usually recommended that you spray about 30cm from your hair (just a tad closer than you would spray hair spray). After that, wait a couple minutes (maybe do some makeup in between) to let the product absorb the oils. Then rub scalp and fluff hair.

Here are some dry shampoos that I have tested out. In the photos, I show you a before, when sprayed, and after rubbing the product in. Sorry for the crappy lighting!

  1. I love the Batiste ones! I get them and Urban Outfitters and they have a ton of “flavors.” I got a little sampler pack that came with 3 travel size ones so I could see which smell I liked best. They even have two with blonde and brunette tints which was great when I needed a root touch up.
