Wow! Thanks for all the feedback!! I will definitely try it out..I think it is worth a shot to see whether I like it or not. Even if it is a little expensive I figure I will be saving money by not using shampoo and conditioner every day so it will pretty much even out in the end! Thanks again for all the advice 🙂
I have used the powders and sprays. I like the sprays much better they seem to absorb more, leave a better scent, and disappear easily. I have tried Klorane, Oscar Blandi, and the Bedhead Rockaholic. Rockaholic is by far the best and the least pricey of the three. I can’t find Psst! but I have heard its very good too
I use it when I go backpacking and can’t shower for a few days. It works alright. It is kind of expensive though. I have tons of hair, so it doesn’t go too far for me. But I guess it’s better than really nasty greasy hair!
I use cornstarch! It’s so cheap! I sprinkle it in throughout my head, parting as i go and rubbing it on, then i run a brush through it, sleep on it, and i have perfect hair! I washed my hair….Monday night. I cornstarched it Tuesday night. Curled it/hairsprayed it Wednesday, and I’m wearing it up in a ponytail today. So yes, it’s Thursday and I haven’t washed since Monday. I could probably wear it up again tomorrow w/ a headband too
I have been thinking about using dry shampoo for the longest time, but I was never sure what brand to buy since, besides Pssssssst (probably too many S’s), the brands Sephora carries are more expensive than what I thought dry shampoo would cost. Thanks to everyone who reviewed the brand they use!
I have dark brown hair and use the Oscar M. Brand shown above. I’m not a HUGE fan of it vs. baby powder except it has a nice lemon-y smell. I use it right before I go to bed (on the roots of my bangs, part, sides by my ears, and crown) and rub it a little bit. By morning it’s generally gone and my hair looks normal.
I’ve also used a BIG bottle of baby powder, shaken it, and squeesed it into my hair, worked just the same execept I smelled like a baby!
Oh oh! Oscar Blandi, Tigi or Big Sexy works really well. I mainly use them as a texturizer though for my fine hair since I still will shampoo everyday. I love love dry shampoos, they allow for a style to hold longer and there are plenty of aerosol sprays that wont leave a whitish residue.
I don’t use shampoo at all anymore. I scrub with Giovanni Tea Tree conditioner, rinse, and use more conditioner to detangle. My hair used to be really oily (I’d shampoo it twice to get all the oil out!) and now it’s not at all (it did take a couple of months to adjust). I think I was drying my scalp so much it was producing more oil. Giovanni is expensive but it doesn’t have silicones, SLS, alcohols, or other drying agents that are bad for your hair. I can also get it for half price in bulk at my local coop. So, rather than dry shampoo try no shampoo!
I only wash my hair maybe twice a week, and maybe only heat style two or three times a month. I use Hairtrition Sufalte free shampoo and condititioner and also their leave in detangler for in between. My hair is the healthiest its been in a very long time and I color my hair as well. But I only use the semi permanent color that washes out in 28 shampoos, there’s no ammonia
