Let me just say that I’ve heard great reviews for expensive dry shampoo, like the Amika one, for example. But I can’t do it. I can’t bring myself to spend that much on a dry shampoo. Elizabeth and James also just came out with one and guess what? It is getting RAVE reviews and it is, wait for it, $28! There has to be a cheaper alternative!
Dry shampoo is the best invention to date. Ok, well maybe electricity is better. And the iPhone. So maybe it is not even close to the best, but can we all agree that it is pretty cool? When you find a good dry shampoo, it is great. Freshens up the hair, makes it look like day one. Spray it on dry hair, let is sit for a minute, shake/brush out. Done and sold.
I have tried many that were just ok. The most common problem I have with dry shampoos: the scent! Some are so perfumey, have you noticed that? Take the dove one for example. It works well, gives a mild white cast (that you can brush out), but that smell is so strong. Or, what about the Herbal Essence one? Made my hair feel really dry, yet really greasy at the same time. Odd, I know.
Sometimes I just use baby powder. No, really.
With that said, my go-to is Batiste. You can get is on sale for the most part and get find this at the drugstore. Full price it’s about $8, not too bad. Plus, they offer a variety of scents and tinted versions! That is the best for someone with dark hair, so you can avoid that white cast. I have heard from some people who have thin hair that this was too heavy for them, so keep that in mind depending on your hair type. I have thick, wavy hair and this works like a charm. I have repurchase time and time again.
