Dry Up Those Greasies!

Greasy hair is my ultimate pet peeve. I try to only wash my hair every other day to keep it good and healthy, but with that comes the greasies! I feel like I have used dry shampoo forever and tried every brand in the books. Below are a few of my personal favorites. All of them have their benefits and are what I use each for a different hair-pulling situation.


TRESemme’s Fresh Start Waterless Foam Shampoo is my most recent purchase, this past week to be exact. I have used it twice and so far so good. I was skeptical at first with it being a foam and all. I was picturing putting heavy mousse in my hair with the intentions of removing oil, but that was not the case at all. It’s very refreshing and works well. I wouldn’t recommend it for overly greasy hair, but other than that you should be fine. It tells you to only use 2-3 pumps, but I ended up using quite a bit more than that. Just make sure you aren’t in a huge hurry because you need to allow a bit of drying time.






There’s always those products that you love when you use them but for some reason when it’s empty you insist on buying something different. And if you’re like me you always end up going back to what you loved in the first place. The Oscar Blandi Pronto Dry Shampoo Spray is that exact product for me. If I could only have one dry shampoo this would have to be my pick. It smells so fresh (lemony) and doesn’t leave any of that icky white residue. I have recommended this product to many people and actually used it on a friend when she had an extended hospital stay. She loved it! This particular picture is of the mini bottle. I always take this with me on-the-go!




Suave’s Dry Shampoo Spray is the cheapest of the bunch at only around three dollars. I have used two cans of this and it really is great. Again, this is not for the extra greasy jobs. It can handle a simple refresher though. I feel like I pick this up every time I am at the drugstore. It really is an excellent drugstore purchase!










I have always suffered from the greasies. Probably about 5 years ago my aunt introduced my to Johnson’s baby powder. At age 12 putting baby powder in my hair just seemed strange, but it worked! This will obviously leave a white residue if you’re not careful, but it can tackle any heavy duty job you throw at it. This was what everyone used before dry shampoos got their fame. This is another cheap choice, and I have a million little bottles of this savior. I would recommend this any day!




Dry shampoos are my best friend! I honestly could not live without them! I have quite the collection, but I have my select faves. What are your favorite grease killers?

  1. Keep your eye on Suave’s Facebook because they give away coupons for their professional products – including the dry shampoo. I was able to score two free pro products from them and choose a mousse and a hairspray instead of the dry shampoo.
