Dry shampoo has been aroun' since th' 1970’s but didn’t really gain much popularity with th' beauty crowd until th' last decade. What were bein' once left t' on th' bottom shelf o' yer drugstore, or only used when campin', is now in vogue.
Why should ye try dry shampoo? The reasons are as bountiful as yer hair.
- Dry shampoo is a great way t' preserve th' essential oils that yer scalp produces. While they may create a slick mess at yer roots, they keep yer hair and yer head healthy. You can easily eliminate th' oily residue and retain fresh hair when ye apply a spray or sprinkle o' dry shampoo.
- You are also givin' yer hair a much needed break from washin' and stylin'. Addin' a spritz or dash o' th' dry stuff can prolong a blow-out. If ye just spent a small fortune on yer new ‘do and want t' keep that smooth blown out look then apply some dry shampoo and it will keep fer up t' three days dependin' on yer hair texture.
- Throwin' a bottle o' dry shampoo into yer gym bag is another smart move especially if ye work out mid-day or after work. A dose will add volume and lift yer hair t' freshness after all that sweatin'. Your body will look better and so will yer hair.
Four Stand Out Dry Shampoos t' Try
Bumble & Bumble Hair Powder ($35) – is one o' th' biggest crowd pleasers and more costly versions when it comes t' dry shampoo. It comes in blonde, brunette, white (fer platinum and grey hair) as well as red. This works well as dry shampoo doesn’t always comb out fully in darker or red hair. The addition o' color t' these sprays eliminates this problem.
Frederic Fekkai au Natural Dry Shampoo($23) - is th' luxurious option as it is a more expensive one too. However, it is also th' greener option as th' ingredients are 95% natural. Fekkai products are known t' work and this one does th' trick every time.
