Dry Shampoo Confessionals

January 17, 2014

We’ve all been there.  You woke up late and you just. don’t. have. time. to. wash. your. hair.  Hashtag girl problems.  Or maybe it’s the weekend and you just want to roll out of bed and go to brunch without performing a full blowout! Sorry we’re not sorry.
I thought it would be fun to poll all my friends and ask them their dry shampoo tricks because as it turns out, everyone has their own technique.  Don’t worry friends, I’m keeping these anonymous.
Dry Shampoo Confessionals:
  • “Of course I use dry shampoo, it is the best way to make my hair style last longer.  It also gives volume.  My favorite drugstore brand is Psst.  I usually lift small sections around my crown and spray right at the root. I’ll let it sit a few minutes and brush out the powder to help distribute the product.  I will blast my hair with the dryer  on the cool setting to make sure that all the powder is out.”
  • “Yes, yes and yes!! Garner Volume extend dry shampoo.  I lift my hair in sections and spray from underneath.  Wait 3 minutes then tease out for a little extra volume.”
  • “I use Oscar Blandi. Pour and blend with fingers.”
  • “I like to go ahead and put in the dry shampoo the night before if I know I might not have time for a wash in the morning. The next morning you can just brush through it and go.”
  • “I like to use it just for help with volume at the roots, even if my hair is freshly washed!!”
  • “I think dry shampoo works the best if it is the spray kind. And it has to smell good, NOT like baby powder!!!!”
  • “I use Suave. And I rub it in my head.” Hmm.
  • “I like to spray it in first thing in the morning, and then finish getting ready so it has plenty of time to settle.  Then right before I walk out the door I comb through it.  I just cannot forget to comb through it or I’ll be walking around with weird powdery streaks all day and not realize it. May or may not have happened before.”
  • “Hey, sometimes you just run out of time. Plus if I wash every day my hair gets too dry. I like day 1 hair to be bouncy and fresh.  Day 2 hair gets help from dry shampoo.  Spray, comb and go.  On the rare occasion of Day 3 hair, (omg) I like to opt for a major bun on the top of my head.  I use a hair donut to do the bun and it takes no time.”
  • “Suave is the only one that works for me! It’s cheap, but seriously the best.”

Jackie had the right idea…
Wowza so there are a million different ways to use dry shampoo – you just have to find your own technique!!  It also sounds like the running theme is that you have to give it a little time before you try to comb through it or style it, (which I think most brand recommend in the instructions.)  What is your technique for 2nd day hair?
Since this is hard-hitting journalism that I’m doing here, I really wanted to get down the root (ha) of this whole dry shampoo thing.   So I also asked everyone their dry shampoo complaints, which summed up were 1) they didn’t like the way it feels, and 2) the smell.  A couple of gals also admitted that even though they think washing hair every day is bad for your locks, if you work out every day you have no other option. Thoughts on that one? Friend X says that her co-worker works out religiously but only washes her hair twice a week and it looks fine. (Woah.) She is doing research on how this is possible.
Honestly, January is probably the best month to give dry shampoo another try if you haven’t in a while. Skin, hair, and nails are all starting to feel the effects of the dry winter air! Some of the recommended dry shampoos are below. Comment with your own confessional if you didn’t see yours above!
Thanks for reading! xo

    I’ve always loved the idea of a dry shampoo, but had no luck with finding one that didn’t leave my hair white. I recently tried Batiste and I am so happy with it! I even add a spritz to clean hair for some added volume!

 Lots of prep today for my #Galentines shoot tomorrow with @jnellyphotography & @mzlalala ! Getting excited! Off to bed with visions of #blooms & sprinkles dancing in my head. ❤️  I am so not a salad person but this one is my new go-to! I had to go to the store today to get the ingredients again b/c I'm obsessed.  // Shred kale into bite sized pieces & throw in bowl. Top with avocado & lime juice. Massage avocado into kale with fingers for 2 mins. Gotta use fingers! The kale will shrink down in size & become tastier.  Throw in sunflower seeds, sliced almonds & chopped pecans (or whatever your fav seeds/nuts are) & toss. Next I like to add some roasted chickpeas. (Those can go in the oven at 350 with a little olive oil, salt, & chili powder while you're preparing the salad.) Boom! Delicious salad! This recipe is my adaptation from @maria_marlowe. The best part? It gets better with time!! Save the leftovers for your next meal!  #mmsugardetox #salad #eeeeeats #kale #yum #avacado #instarecipe #tsbrecipes
