We are all guilty of it: over washing. We wash, wash, wash our hair even when experts tell us not to. My hairdresser constantly scolds me about my over washing and I think it may be time to listen. It is typical to start your morning with a shower and it becomes habit to wash your hair. Doing this can reek havoc on your hair causing it to become dry and over processed. I mean we already use flat irons, curling irons and blow dryers to style it every which way. So now its time to get a hold of a product that lets you go a day or even five without washing it!
Oh stop it! It’s really not that gross. Many working women or full time moms don’t have time to style their hair. Cue: dry shampoo. After doing my fair share of research I came across the same complaints. Typically women worry about the white residue dry shampoo can leave behind or the texture of your hair after you spray. So that’s where I have a few tips and some products to share with you.
First of all, when applying dry shampoo less is more. To ensure that you aren’t overusing the spray make sure to brush it through while applying. I cannot stress enough how important it is to brush your hair throughout the process. If you don’t, it will leave you hair matted down and gray.
After reading the countless articles and reviews about dry shampoo it is very easy to say that the brand that most women seem to have a problem with is Oscar Blandi Sprays which leave your hair white and are too pricey for the end results. Instead, opt for one of the five most highly recommended dry shampoos. These top rated products all contain the same positive qualities. They are inexpensive, lightweight and fresh. They eliminate oils, add body and smell fantastic. And best of all, they do not leave the greasy or white residue in your hair that most people worry about when considering dry shampoos.
