Posts Tagged ‘dry shampoo’

is the question i hear the most often when i mention my quest for the perfect dry shampoo.

the answer, of course, is that i am often lazy, don’t always have the time or facilities to shower while spending weekends away, and, as my idol bea points out, washing hair every day is unecessary and also a waste of water.

dry shampoo is like baby powder and corn starch. it’s either a powder or a spray that doesn’t actually clean your hair but instead soaks up all the oil so you appear clean to passers-by. in fact, it’s GENIUS — the most perfect product for vain campers and backpackers (full disclosure: i am a vain backpacker), frequent roadtrippers, concerned hippies, lazy lucies, and people with bangs for whom grease becomes a problem rapidly after showering (full disclosure: my bangs get greasy like 5 hours after my hair has dried). i am convinced everyone should carry some around with them at all times in their purse, backpack, or fannypack.

so far my favorite is by oscar blandi, because it works really well and once you figure out how to work the nozzle it’s pretty easy to avoid dumping a pound of powder on your head. the only flaw is that it’s white — perfect for blondes and redheads but often gives those with darker hair the impression of grey roots. meh. i’d rather look old than greasy any day.
