Dry IT Up
I’ve banged on a few times about Dry Shampoo and the amazing things it does for the busy girls lifestyle; however I get surprised when girls don’t exactly know what it is/does – or get it off me and give me a quizzical look that says ‘um what the’ rather than my anticipated ‘OMG I love this stuff, thank you!’ So I did feel it was appropriate to actually tell you WHO uses it, WHAT it is, WHERE you can buy it, WHEN to use it, and HOW it works.
WHO – Any smart girl; seriously it’s the best thing you can purchase if you have a busy lifestyle and is a must for your handbag, gym bag, car and hair drawer/cupboard. Yes 4 unless you are one of those annoyingly efficient people who remembers to take things with them all the time. For the average person, it is not uncommon to wake up in the morning, realize you’ve snoozed 5 times and are now running EXTREMELY late with a 9.00 meeting. On top of this you were planning to get up and wash/blow-dry your hair. Fat Chance. LUCKILY dry shampoo is niftier and more powerful the superman and can become the ultimate superhero by turning your greasy, matted locks into what appears to be a freshly washed hairdo. All with a simple spray (or 3).
WHAT – Dry Shampoos are typically based on powders such as starch or talc, and are usually found in a spray can format which ultimately gives the best result.
WHERE – Priceline has a great selection (including THE BEST – more below), Price attack, some pharmacies, grocery stores and most hairdressers and department stores will carry it also. In short it’s not hard to find!
WHEN – Use dry shampoo in-between washes when your hairs slightly dank but not yet noticeably rank (how cute am I). Dry Shampoo can also be used after the gym, when running late to an event or when roots are showing!!!! (Yes it lightens them slightly). It also works miracles on thin or fine hair as it adds volume to play with.
HOW – Dry shampoos are designed to work without water and are intended to absorb excess sebum (oil) from the hair before being brushed out.
THE BEST DRY SHAMPOO EVERRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRR (as I have said 1000 times) is Klorane which has been labelled ALL over the world as THE one product that you CANT live without. Get it. Right now preferably.
I’ve tried others and I do know people that prefer them to Klorane but for me and my converted friends and family –It’s all Klorane baby.
