Hey! I don’t have experience with it personally, but I actually work as a nurse in hospital, and many patients swear by dry shampoo becuase they can wash their heir everyday, even if they can’t get out of bed. I thought it was so neat. I say give it a try!

I use dry shampoo because I am a big hair colourer and it is so much better if you can avoid daily washing. I don’t like the sprays because they get everywhere. I use this one:

I put a little in between my hands, rub them together, then rub them over the parts of the hair that need touch-ups (bangs, part, hairline)

I DO!!! this is the kind i use:

 

i love it! One thing though, it worked perfectly with my blond hair, but since i recently dyed it brunette, i really have to brush it in or else your scalp looks powdery and white 🙁 But, if you have blond hair you won’t see it at all!

i wash my hair every other day and use the dry shampoo in between and it really does make a difference. try it!!

i’ve never used that brand you have pictured but i saw it at sephora when i purchased mine…i’m sure both brands are quite similar 🙂

I’m an “every other day” washer (although I still wet my hair on the days I don’t wash just to rinse it) and don’t feel the need for dry shampoo.  Over time your hair adjusts to your washing schedule.

If you don’t want to spend the $$$ on dry shampoo (it’s expensive) you can also use corn starch (just a tad!) and soak up excess oil.  If you have dark hair you can use a 50/50 mix of corn starch and cocoa powder.  Google it – it works!

I use it occasionally at the roots when I don’t have time to shampoo. I’ve never used any of the more expensive brands though, I get a drugstore brand called Psssst (not sure the exact number of Ss, lol). Basically it’s just aerosol and baby powder, I can’t imagine what the expensive brands have in them. I usually find it tucked on the bottom shelf at CVS.

Bumble and Bumble has a dry shampoo that is colored so you don’t get that strange powdery look. It sprays on and works really well. I use it occasionally, but not for oil absorbing. It’s an amazing texture product that give fantastic volume and grip for styling! Also if you have done your hair the day before, you can pep the style right back up with the dry shampoo. Good stuff, but takes some playing with for sure!

I tried the Oscar Blandi stuff and thought it was terrible!  It was like i poured baby powder all over my head and I know I didn’t use too much.  It made a mess in my bathroom too!  Maybe the spray kind is better but this one went all over the place!  I have brown hair and it was really hard to rub it in.  Also, my hair felt incredibly gross and dirty, which I can’t stand.  It didn’t look as greasy but it still felt like it.

I use Tigi Rockaholic brand and love it!  Makes my hair look freshly washed and has a great scent.

I’ve only ever used the camping version. That way you don’t muck up the water for people and animals downstream. I don’t really know how well it works, but I like that it keeps my hair from getting all gross and greasy

@JoJo dry shampoo will always leave your hair with a certain… texture that may make you feel its dirty. Nothing will ever replace good ole’  water and shampoo, and it’s definitely not for everyone!

I use it regularly, mainly because I am too lazy to blowdry my hair everyday. I have had no probs with it. I also use the Tigi Rockaholic one.

I started using it so I could get away with an every other day wash as well. I like it so far and have been experimenting with different brands until I find the one I like the most.
