Confession: I don’t wash my hair as often as you probably think I should. I refrain from shampoo for a variety of reasons including a lot of busy, a little bit of lazy, a bottle of bleach blonde, and a dash of don’t want to kill my hair. While I still shower like regular people (I promise i’m not stinky), most of the time I rely on deliberate hair updos to conceal the need to rinse or I sport a wonderful clean look thanks to dry shampoo.
Dry shampoo is new to me — only discovering it after I had my 4th chidl and had even less time to wash my long hair. I was thrilled with how well it worked and allowed me to fake the “totally showered” look and still wear my hair down. If you’re on the hunt for a dry shampoo, it may take a little testing to find out which product hits all your happy points (how well it works, price, smell, ease of use). Dry shampoos are either usually a powder or a spray and work to soak up the oil, clean up your hair, give it some texture, and improve the smell.
