… and a couple of dry shampoo tips.
I’m a fan of dry shampoos. They’re great for refreshing second/third day hair so you don’t have to shampoo so much and they’re fantastic for adding a little grip and texture to the hair for updos.
I recently picked up a can of Dove Invigorating Dry Shampoo. Let me tell you I have a new holy grail! It sops up oil, adds texture and body, and smells like angels. The scent is a long lasting, strong floral, which I will admit you should probably avoid if strong florals give you headaches. It is mostly colorless, though if you use too much there is a white cast- easily brushed out though.
Quick dry shampoo tips-
· Spray it in before bed. It soaks all the oil up while you sleep and saves a whole bunch of time that you would have spent brushing any white powder out.
· If you spend any time in around smelly environments that trap their stink in your hair (fast food workers, bartenders, athletes) find a dry shampoo whose scent you like and take advantage of the perfumey quality.
· Spritz your clean hair to add body and hold a ponytail holder or bobby pins in place.
· If you have dark hair and brushing out the product isn’t getting the white out, a quick squirt of hairspray on the white parts followed by a quick brush out will usually fix it.
