    Dry Shampoo…your new best friend


    Dry Shampoo, Don’t Leave Home Without it 

    We’ve all been there. The alarm clock doesn’t go off so we are running late for work with no time to shower. Or, we just finished a great workout and receive a text that the new neighbor’s are over to greet us. Or something like, your mother has just had surgery and can’t wash her own hair but wants to spruce up as friends come by to visit. What’s a girl to do?

    There is one little thing that can help reduce your stress and it is small enough to fit in your purse; dry shampoo. I know you have heard about it and maybe you already use it, but if not, you should. It’s a BIG time-saver and certainly the savior of many a bad hair day. So, what is a dry shampoo and what it can do for your hair?

    Dry shampoo has been around for years and used to only be available in a powder form (like baby powder) that was sprinkled on the scalp and rubbed into roots and hair. This is still available today, but it can tend to be messy. Dry shampoo’s are now available in aerosol – just like your favorite hairspray- so they’re less mess and much easier to apply.

    Dry shampoo is a great styling product to have on hand. It’s formulated to be used in between washes, to absorb excess oils, boost the hair’s body and give a fresh clean look and feel to the hair. It’s perfect for those pesky power outages that interfere with our alarm clocks and a must for any household with teenagers.

    Dry shampoo is a great gift idea. It comes in handy for just about anyone; for someone recovering from surgery to a new mom that doesn’t have a lot of time on her hands. Just spray it onto the scalp, rub it in a bit and VOILA!, no more greasy roots, no more untamed locks. It really is that easy. Do wash your hair though in between each couple of uses (to keep product build up at bay).

    There are a lot of good dry shampoo’s on the market and almost all professional salon brands offer a dry shampoo. The following are dry shampoo’s that I have used personally and are popular with my clients and customers.

    Quantum Refresher – an invisible dry shampoo (no powder residue) it’s awesome for brunette/black hair and it brushes out easily.

    AG FastFWD – a cruelty free line (no testing on bunnies.) No CFC aerosol – environmentally friendly and it brushes out easily.

    KMS Hairplay Makeover Spray – smells like the beach and brushes out easily.

    Big Sexy Hair – Volumizing Dry Shampoo – adds volume and texture and U.V. protection an awesome product to use for teasing.

    Joico Instant Refresh – a fast drying spray that brushes out easily without leaving a white residue. Adds volume and lift.

    Dry Shampoo can give you one less thing to worry about, and one less thing is always a good thing.
