As a child I was an early riser. I had no problem getting up early. These days every extra second that I can sleep in makes me happy. So you can imagine anything I can do to reduce the amount of time it takes me to get ready is a good thing. One thing that takes up a chunk of my morning is washing and drying my hair. This is where dry shampoo comes in.
How does it work? Spray it into the roots of your dry hair and the powder soaks up any excess oil. Massage it through. Then brush out any of the powder that is left in your hair and style it as you wish. By doing this I can get away with washing my hair every second day.
Dry shampoo freshens up your hair and gives it an extra boost of volume without having to wash it. I even use this product after letting my hair air dry completely to give it some extra volume. Other benefits of dry shampoo include less damage to your hair from heat styling and not stripping too many natural oils from the hair.
I use the dry shampoo by Batiste. I especially like the one that is for medium and brunette hair because the powder has a brown tint to it making it easier to blend into the hair. It also has a delicious vanilla scent.
The price varies depending what size and where you are buying it from but generally the biggest size (400mL) is less than $18. Honestly I can’t say exactly how long a can lasts me because I can never remember how long it has been between repurchasing.
Have you tried dry shampoo? Do you have any tricks to save time in the morning?
